Please accept my humble obeisance. All glories to Srila Prabhupada

 

Nan-in, a Japanese master received a university professor who came to inquire about the Absolute Truth. 
 
Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring. 
 
The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. "It is overfull. No more will go in!" 
 
"Like this cup," Nan-in said, "you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you the Absolute Truth unless you first empty your cup?" 

Hence it’s very important when we hear or take association from seniors; we go with an empty cup and hear with an open mind, keeping aside our own opinions and speculations.
