The day of worship of one’s preceptor, is a day of pure joy to the sincere spiritual aspirant.
Thrilled by the expectation of offering his reverent homage to the beloved Guru, aspirants await this occasion with eagerness and devotion.
It is the Guru alone that breaks the binding cords of attachment and releases the aspirant from the trammels of earthly existence.
The Srutis say : “To that high-souled aspirant, whose devotion to the Lord is great and whose devotion to his Guru is as great as that to the Lord, the secrets explained herein become illuminated”.
Guru is Brahman, the Absolute, or God Himself.
He guides and inspires you from the innermost core of your being.
He is everywhere.
