Dear Kameswararao ji
In TaittirIya upanishad, when explaining the phrase "सत्यं ज्ञानमनन्तं
ब्रह्म ।" Adi Shankara says:
"तद्रूपं नव्यभिचरति, तत्सत्यम्"
Gambirananda translates this as "A thing is said to be satya (true) when it
does not change its nature that is ascertained to be its own"

I once heard a story, I am not sure where from, so I paraphrase... about a
princess who was taken by a false guru and told that if she wanted to see
Vishnu, he must tie her to a tree and take her possessions.
She gave him her money and he duly tied her up.
Time went by.
Vishnu, perceiving what had happened sent Narada to free her, but she
refused to be freed saying that she would obey the guru.
So Narada brought the false guru along but even then she refused to be
freed since Vishnu had not yet appeared.
So Vishnu appeared on the scene, and when the girl was free of her bonds,
she experienced a moment of indecision:
Should she offer obeisance  first to the (false) guru, or to Vishnu? For to
her this false one had brought Him to the place.

Was it not her unflinching desire to see Him that brought Him to her?

Kind Regards
