The Sadguru is Brahman Himself. He is an ocean of bliss, knowledge, and mercy. He is the captain of your soul. He is he fountain of joy. He removes all your troubles, sorrows, and obstacles. He shows you the right divine path. Guru is the Moksha-dvara (door to liberation). Worship the Guru with the flowers of faith and devotion. Satsanga with the Guru is the first pillar in the temple of Self-realisation. Grace of God takes the form of Guru. To see the Guru is to see God.- Swami Sivananda
