Path of guru’s grace


Gurukrupayog: The best and the most spectacular path in Kaliyug (the age of Kali) to make faster spiritual progress is Gurukrupayog, or the path of attaining Guru’s grace. Why is spiritual progress fastest through this path?  For, it is in this Yogmarg (pathway to achieve liberation) that the paths of other Yogmargs are included.  For instance, those who do spiritual practice according to Gurukrupayog are veritable and sincere Karmyogis in the true sense. They devote their sense of doer-ship to the Guru and remain immersed in seamless work with selflessness.  So much so, that even after attaining the status of a saint, the seamlessness of their actions continues. Similarly, those doing spiritual practice through this Yogmarg are Hathyogis too. A Guru’s task is to dissolve the mind, intellect and ego.  Hence, the Guru commands so many things to his disciples some of which may even go against the wishes of the disciple’s thinking, yet the disciple obeys him.  Going against the mind is genuine Hathyog.

A seeker on this path keeps his/her attention focused at the feet of the Guru, just as Arjun kept his attention trained on the eye of the bird. A disciple whose practice is according to the principle of Dhyaan Mulam Guror Murti (meaning the guru’s gross form is the focus of meditation) completes the spiritual practice spontaneously.  On this path, an unending stream of knowledge emanates from the Shri Guru and by dipping into it, a disciple gets immersed in the ocean of knowledge.

Thus, the Dnyanyog too is contained in this path. But there is no need to go in search for a Sadguru because Sadguru is not just a mere physical form. He is an omniscient, omnipresent principle.  Till the time there is no Sadguru in the physical form in your life, the deity that you venerate is your formless Guru. No sooner does the yearning to find a Guru in physical form and the commensurate efforts and devotion increase, will a Sadguru automatically walk into your life.  Remember, it is easy to find a Guru, but tough to get a true disciple.  Thus, Sadguru too is on the lookout for a worthy disciple.  In order to facilitate Sadguru Aagaman (entry) into your life, you can make the following efforts:

  1. Try to do as much Naam Jap ( chanting) as possible.
  2. If there is Pitru Dosh (ancestral problems) in your house, make efforts towards its redressal.
  3. Try to render whatever you can for the cause of Vedic Sanatan Dharma through the body, mind and money.
  4. Remain vigilant towards your ego and other personality defects and make efforts to completely remove them.
  5. Indulge in propagation of Dharma. This is the best path to please saints, or to attract them towards you.
  6. Take some time out from your routine life to make efforts towards individual spiritual practice as well as practice for the betterment of society, with a selfless feeling.  A saint of the highest order will automatically step into your life. – Tanuja Thakur
