|| Importance of Guru ||
| When Lord Narayan was in the midst of creating universe,
Goddess Laxmi ,His consort was very upset. Lord Narayan
saw this and asked her what the reason was. To this
She replied that Lord Narayan was creating the universe
in which He would crerate human beings and the Karma
Department, which would be totally independent of anything.
Due to the Karma theory, mankind would only suffer due
to their own doings,as Karma is totally an independent
No God or Demi God influences what
a human being wants to do and all this would lead to
misery and unlimited sorrow and sadness.Since humans
are no one else but the children of Lord Narayan/Goddess
Laxmi it was all but obvious that a mother would cry
if she sees her children in misery. So She wanted the
Lord to create some method, which could end the misery
of mankind. To this Lord Narayan created the following
He said that any human being,no matter
whatever bad karma he has done earlier in this birth
as well as his previous births—once he accepts
a spiritual leader or Guruji (in the disciple succession
of guru Parampara),takes naam daan from the Guru and
surrenders himself totally to his Guru(Sharnagati)—this
person’s sin would be forgiven and forgotten and
he would be on the path to Moksha(oneness with the Supreme
It is very funny that if someone wants to learn music,
they look for a good music teacher.if someone wants
to learn tennis he looks for a good tennis coach, but
when it comes to spiritual life it is basic human nature
that he thinks he is good enough on his own and does
not need a teacher in this field.
We see around that everything needs
a teacher so how on earth we enter the spiritual world
without a teacher.That’s why a spiritual teacher
or Guru is so important. The scriptures also say that
a Guru is not only important, but is essential which
means that there is no choice, if one wants to head
towards self realization, then one has to have a Guru
and there is no allowance to this rule
NATHYA MUNI MADYAMAH
VANDE GURU PARAMPARA
Lord Krishna himself tells Arjuna that if you want to
approach me then approach me through a teacher who himself
is self realized and who knows who I am so that He can
guide you successfully through this spiritual world
and make you one with Me.
Our own Guruji says to have a Guru
is so important in life. He further says that we feel
Guru Nanikji was himself a Guru so He may not have needed
another Guru,but dear friends even Lord Rama ,Lord Krishna
everyone needed a Guru to sail across life cycle.
In the Purana we can get the gyan
of our Gurus. Guru Nanikji in His Granth starts saluting
His past Gurus including Pandit Hardayal Shastri and
Lord Rama had Vashisht Muni as his
spiritual teacher and Lord Krishna’s spiritual
teacher was Sandipan Muni. So who are we to go through
the spirtual world without a teacher or Guru.
To sum it all as Kabirdasji wrote:-
"Ram Krishna se koi bade,jinhone
Guru kinh, teen lok taran tarn Guru aage aadheen."
