GURU PURNIMA-PART- IIBy;Yogi Aswini,Posted;Orissabarta
OM DHYAN MOOLAM GURU MURTI ,PUJA MOOLAM GURU PADAM, MANTRA MOOLAM GURU VAKYAM, MOKSHA MOOLAM GURU KRIPA, OM SHRI GURUVE NAMAH OM
The foundation of Dhyan is your Guru’s image, the foundation of your puja is your Guru’s feet, Guru’s words are like the mantra that cannot be defied and moksha or nirvana is possible only by your Guru’s grace.
It is so interesting to know that the concept of Guru is prevalent only in India. There is no synonym of Guru in no other language and the closest that you can get is teacher or master. A Guru is much above both.
The Guru is the channel between you and the Divine and the only medium to get to know the Divine. Guru is the one who knows your capacity and leads you on the path of Sadhna as per your entitlements.Guru is just like a mother and the shishya a child. The Guru knows exactly what and how much the shishya wants and provides with the same. The Guru transfers just that much gyan to the shishya as much the shishya can absorb or hold.
It is like if you pour extremely hot water on a cold rock it will break. The gyan is like hot water and the shishya is the cold rock. The Guru holds the gyan and transfers it slowly to the shishya as per his or her capacity
It is extremely difficult to find a right Guru but in your search for a Guru do not go by what you get to hear from others. Yoga is all about experiences and it is your own experience and own insights that will lead you to a Guru. Once you reach your Guru you no longer feel the need to go to any other discourse or any other teacher to get the answers to your questions. Your search is said to end when you find yourGuru.
Guru Purnima is a powerful day. Just being in your guru’s presence on this day can lead to phenomenal experiences of the inner world and have amazing effects on your evolution.
