Guru – The Inspiration behind the Journey Within | Pujya Gurudevshri Rakeshbhai


Guru is Brahma, Guru is Vishnu,
Guru is Maheshwara – Shiva; The Guru is the personified supreme Lord.
I bow to Him. He nurtures and protects my spiritual aspirations, my bent
towards spiritual practices, my yearning for liberation, Through His countenance,
words of wisdom and association, Even by simply remembering Him! Pure devotion arises – ‘What can
a lowly person like me accomplish?’ Our feet are so small. It is only because of faith in You, that
we have dared to exhibit a little courage. Our courage even to aspire to attain the exalted
state of self-realisation, is only because of Your grace. What capacity do we have? You gazed at me compassionately and
my tiny feet were filled with strength, ‘Let me also walk on
the path of liberation.’ Like a small child who says, “Let me
travel from Mumbai to New York by foot.” That is the kind of courage
we are exhibiting. Do we have that eligibility? But by the grace and support
of this Great Being, I felt, ‘Let me take tiny steps’, ‘And if I encounter any trouble along
the way, He will carry me through!’ Even the strength to call out, “O Lord!”
has been bestowed upon me by You. Even if I can be a humble servant in
Your shelter, that would be enough. A Guru is One in whose proximity
you experience a magnificence. When touching Him, you feel like one
end of His is connected to the Soul, And with the other, Through the gift of mind, speech and body
that He has received, He is uplifting us. Touching His Lotus Feet, feels like
you have touched the path of liberation. When you hear His melodious voice,
you begin to hear the song of the Soul. And if you can behold a Guru
through the eyes of a devotee, You will realise that
the Guru is the Lord!
