On the Subject of "Guru Mahima" for upcoming Guru  Purnima ( July 15, 2011)

"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 God. A word from him is a word from God. He need not-teach anything. Even his presence or company is elevating, inspiring, and stirring, His very company is self-illumination. Living in his company is spiritual education.
Guru is the Moksha-dvara (door to liberation). He is the gateway to the transcendental Truth-Consciousness. But, it is the aspirant who has to enter through it. The, Guru is a help, but the actual task of practical Sadhana (spiritual practice) falls on the aspirant himself" <<More>> - Sri Swami Sivananda

The Lord's promise
 If you ponder the state of human society all over the world and take a look at yourself in this haven of refuge, this haven of peace, then the light of understanding will dawn in your intellect, and the light of a grateful love will arise and fill your heart towards your invisible, but real benefactor. Yogakshemam vahamyaham has never been belied. All things may change, the world may be a different world with different conditions, but the Divine Word prevails, the promise goes on being fulfilled time after time in the lives of millions who sincerely seek the Divine, remember Him, think of Him constantly, make Him the centre of their lives, the goal of their lives. To them, amidst poverty there is plenty, amidst want there is the fulfilment of every want, amidst anxiety, insecurity, danger, there is safety, security and fearlessness.

Yogakshemam vahamyaham—this eternal promise is proved true in the lives of countless seeking souls who are given freedom from want and freedom of mind. But the discriminating soul will receive of this gift with awareness: “Now is the time when I must make the highest use of what has been given unto me.” Therefore, with a grateful heart, our life itself will be a perennial thanksgiving. - Swami Chidananda  << More>>

Wisdom Sparks
  • "A living awareness of the here-and-now presence of the great Master makes one a real follower of the great Master. If you are conscious and aware of this presence, His presence is hundredfold more. If you are in a state of forgetfulness with your thoughts elsewhere, you deprive yourself of His presence, Therefore, cultivate the consciousness of the permanent and perennial presence of the Master." He pervades all my life. He is with me wherever I go. In and through me He continues to live and to shine." - Swami Chidananda
  • "What is the nature of Guru's grace? It is beyond thought and word. Then how can it be said that the devotee realises his true Being by virtue of the Guru's grace? It is like the elephant which wakes up on seeing a lion in its dream. Even as the elephant wakes up at the mere sight of the lion, so too is it certain that the disciple wakes up from the sleep of ignorance to the knowledge of Real. It is true and certain." - Sri Ramana Maharshi
  • "The Guru is the boat,  To cross this ocean of Samsara; The Guru is the passport , To the kingdom of Eternal bliss;The Guru is the ladder , To lift you to the peak of perfection.Serve your Guru well with Bhakti. You will obtain his grace and reach the goal of life." - Sri Swami Sivananda
