The devotee should develop unity in mind, speech and practice especially in spiritual side. The devotee calls a saint as Swamiji. What is the meaning of the word Swami? Swami means the Lord or the owner of this entire creation in which the devotee is also included. Therefore, one should know the meaning of word before uttering the word. The devotees recite long prayers in Sanskrit without knowing their meaning.
At least, let the devotee know the meaning of a simple word like Swami before its usage. The devotee does not completely believe the saint as God (Lord) but has a doubt about the saint that whether he is God. The devotee calls the saint as God (Swami) based on the faith of probability. Most of the devotees are not complete believers in God. They believe in existence of God due to selfishness and probability. Their logic is that if the unseen hell exists after death and if the unseen God also exists, let their prayers and worship please the probably existing God to protect him or her from the probably existing hell. There is nothing lost, if God and hell do not exist. Since the limits of infinite space are not found, there is a 50-50 probability for both the existence and non-existence of God and hell. Therefore, this logic of probability guides the devotees everywhere in the spiritual field.
If such probability is the basis, the devotee should address the saint as God limiting himself or herself to the part of receiving knowledge only form the saint. Such devotees should not enter into practical service to God in the form of saint, which involves the total surrender of everything in practice. If the devotee has a doubt about the God-ship of the saint, the total surrender in practice should not be done.
The sacrifice in the practical service should be also limited to a few rupees in the form of Dakshina and not to the total wealth. The sacrifice should be proportional to the extent of your faith. If you sacrifice more than your faith, you will repent later on. Therefore, confirm the full God-ship of the saint before you do the total surrender in practice.
