Mantra in praise of Guru and its true meaning


Guru’s Praise and Its True Meaning

गुरुर्ब्रह्मा ग्रुरुर्विष्णुः गुरुर्देवो महेश्वरः । (Guru Bramha Guru Vishnu Gurudevo Maheshwar )

गुरुः साक्षात् परं ब्रह्म तस्मै श्री गुरवे नमः ॥ (Guru Saakshat Param Bramha Parmeshwar Tasmay Shri Guruve Namah:)

This verse is a vision of the importance of Guru and his omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent nature. He manifests in the creation, maintenance and the destruction of the world. He is the all pervasive cosmic consciousness that is present in each and every creature of the world. That is why it is said that we all are part of the same divine soul and have the same divinity present in us.

Guru Maharaj says , ” “It is a great mistake to consider one’s Guru as ceasing to exist after they depart from this body to their heavenly abode, for he becomes all pervasive and prevalent in space all the time in form of the cosmic energy that takes care of us.”

The above facts show that the Guru’s presence is in the form of power, a sublime consciousness that pervades the entire universe. It is always there for the disciple, whether their Guru is there in the physical body or has departed for his own abode. He is the Brahma or God.

O Guru Maharaj! We are not able to appreciate you completely, just as a person is unable to appreciate his mother who gave birth to him. Please continue to keep us in your mercy and grace. Please hold our hands. Who else is our savior, other than you?
