Guru Poornima Message

Guru Poornima message by Guruma Bharati and Guruji Prem Nirmal

We are on the path of Kriya Yoga where Guru-Shishya Parampara (Master-Disciple Tradition) is valued a lot. This day of Guru Poornima is a reminder to all of us of this great tradition and motivates us to walk the path of Kriya yoga in purity and sincerely until the final goal is achieved.

Guru is a fountainhead of wisdom through whom flows the ultimate gyana that is traditionally handed down from generation to generation. This day reminds us of Guru and His mission. Let us celebrate this day and make a firm resolution to reach our goal – The Light of Awareness – The ultimate bliss of unconditional love for all.

The word guru is a compound of two words, gu and ru. Gu means darkness and ru means remover. That which removes the darkness of ignorance is called guru.

Guru is not a person but Guru tattva or Guru Principle can be represented by a person who is rooted in light of awareness and settled in his understanding of ultimate truth. Guru is the intelligence which is all pervading. Everyone’s capacity to receive that intelligence varies. It depends on preparation done by the disciple with his practice of Kriya and meditation and self-study of patterns recognition and healing of self-sabotaging patterns. Guru has no persona (masks). Guru is divine principle driven by grace. Such a guru can ignite the lamp of awareness in others with his presence and helps disciples to awaken the inner guru within.

It is said that guru’s grace is always showering but the student may not be ready to receive what the guru has to offer. When the student is prepared, the guru always arrives to help the student do what is necessary to progress in removing the veil of ignorance. It is said that when disciples lamp is properly prepared with the wick and oil, the master lights the lamp.
The master-disciple relationship is based on unconditional love. When a disciple comes to a master and shows his readiness to learn and grow, master starts working on him by chopping the unhealthy patterns of disciple and carves out a beautiful being! In this chopping the guru is merciless. The guru’s job is to cut into pieces the disciple’s ego and all that stands between the disciple and liberation. The guru never allows his disciples to depend on him. If the disciple becomes too dependent on the guru, the guru pushes the disciple away, insisting on independence. It is a remarkable expression of unconditional love. The master acts out of pure compassion. Like the sun, guru gives unconditional love and remains unattached.

On this occasion of Guru poornima, we bow down to our moksha guru Sri Mahavatar Babaji and our guiding light Yogiraj Amar Jyoti and seek their blessings to awaken the inner guru!

अखण्ड-मण्डलाकारम् व्याप्तम् येन चराचरम्।
तत्पदम् दर्शितम् येन तस्मै श्री गुरवे नमह्॥

akhaṇḍa-maṇḍalākāram vyāptam yena carācaram|
tatpadam darśitam yena tasmai śrī gurave namah||

That (Which) pervades the entire unbroken form of the circle (of creation), moving and unmoving.
To that beautiful and benevolent Guru through whom that state was revealed (to me), salutations
