"Guru Mahima" on the Occasion of Auspicious Guru Purnima ( July 12, 2014)
"The Sadguru is Brahman Himself. He is an ocean of bliss, knowledge, and mercy. He is the captain of your soul. He is the fountain of joy. He removes all your troubles, sorrows, and obstacles. He shows you the right divine path."
"Guru is God. A word from him is a word from God. He need not-teach anything. Even his presence or company is elevating, inspiring, and stirring, His very company is self-illumination. Living in his company is spiritual education."
"Guru is the Moksha-dvara (door to
liberation). He is the gateway to the transcendental
Truth-Consciousness. But, it is the aspirant who has to enter
through it. The, Guru is a help, but the actual task of
practical Sadhana (spiritual practice) falls on the aspirant
himself."- Swami Sivananda <<
In the life of a sincere seeking soul, in the
life of jijnasu, a mumukshu, a sadhaka, a spiritual aspirant,
the Guru is as it were, the Sun"
"Glory to Guru" by Swami Adhyatmananda
"Gurupurnima is the day for worshipping the GURU. The Guru is a Master, but He never makes His disciple a slave. Entire mission of Guru is to turn His disciple into none else but great Guru only. The Guru says “AHAM BRAHMASMI”, I’m Brahman. But never the less “TAT TWAM ASI” you are that only. This purnima is a full moon day. When there is no hindrance between sun and moon, this moon shines in its full bloom likewise when disciple totally surrenders to His Guru, he too shines with Brahma Vidya. Brahma Vidya is knowledge of Absolute. Brahma Vidya is the highest knowledge after knowing that nothing remains to be known. It is the grace of Guru upon his beloved disciple that after having received Brahma Vidya, disciple has not to strive for any more gain. He becomes full; he becomes contented, he rejoices supreme BLISS. He dives deep in the eternity and divinity."
A Guru is necessary. Never finds fault in Guru, any action by Guru will have a purpose in that; there is a meaning in that. Accept His command, follow His instruction, just be humble, feel his hardship and serve Him whole heartedly."- Swami Adhyatmananda << More> >
