Guru


गुरु गोविंद दोऊं खडे, काके लागूं पांय।
बलिहारी गुरु आपकी, गोविंद दियो बताय॥ – संत कबीर

Guru Gobind dou khade kaake lagon paany
Balihari Guru aapney, Govind diyo bataye
– Saint Kabir
Meaning : A conflict arose in the mind of Saint Kabir that if both, Guru and Govind (God) appeared before him, whom should he greet and salute first! He had an inkling that he would first of all sing the glory of Guru, for it is the Guru who has showed the path to attain God and taught how to acquire knowledge of the Self .
Implied Meaning: It is known to everyone that we have been created from God, but the awareness of Self {Aham Brahmaasmi (I and He are the same) } does not come to everyone. The Guru helps to tread the path of Sadhana and removes the obstacles that comes on the path of Sadhana. The principles of God – omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence are present in the Guru, hence, Guru has been given the title of Parabrahma (Supreme God). Without a Guru, acquiring Poornatva ( Absolutएness) is impossible, at least in the era of Kaliyug. Hence, a seeker must develop seekerhood and make an attempt to imbibe the virtues of a disciple to enable the entry of a Sadguru into his life. An egoistic person can never come across a Sadguru.
