Guru Brahma Guru Vishnu Guru Devo Maheswara
Guru Sakshat Para Brahma Thasmai Sri Gurave Namaha

Guru is Brahma, Guru is Vishnu, Guru is Maheswara. Consider Guru as your everything. In this world, everything is a manifestation of Divinity. Sarvam Khalvidam Brahma (verily all this is Brahman). All are the embodiments of Divinity. In fact, all that you see is nothing but the Divine Cosmic Form (Viswa Virat Swarupa).

Mere Gurudev
Madhukarji Ki Jai!

MERE GURUDEV / MY GURUDEV


Mere Gurudev, charanon par sumana shraddha ke arpita hai
Tere hee dena hai jo hai. Wahi tujha ko samarapita hai

My Gurudev I offer these flowers of my faith at your feet
Whatever I have, you have given to me, and I dedicate it all to you.

Na priti hai pratiti hai, na hi puja ki shakti hai
Meraa yaha man, meraa yaha tan, meraa kan kan samarapita hai

I have no love, nor do I know you.
I don`t even have the strength to worship you,
But this mind of mine, this body of mine,
my every atom is dedicated to you.

Tuma hee ho bhaava men mere, vicharon mein, pukaron mein.
Banaale yantra ab mujhko mere saravatra samarapita hai

You are the only one in my heart and my thoughts.
You are the one who I call out to.
Now Make me your instrument; all I am I offer to you

MERE GURUDEV / MEIN GURUDEV


Mere Gurudev, charanon par sumana shraddha ke arpita hai

Tere hee dena hai jo hai. Wahi tujha ko samarapita hai

Mein Gurudev,
diese Blumen meines Vertrauens lege ich zu DEINEN FÜSSEN,

Was immer ich habe hast DU mir gegeben und alles ist DEIN.

Na priti hai pratiti hai, na hi puja ki shakti hai

Meraa yaha man, meraa yaha tan, meraa kan kan samarapita hai

Weder habe ich Liebe, noch kenne ich DICH

Ich habe nicht einmal die Kraft DICH anzubeten

Doch dieser mein Geist, dieser mein Körper

Jedes meiner Atome gehört DIR

Tuma hee ho bhaava men mere, vicharon mein, pukaron mein.

Banaale yantra ab mujhko mere saravatra samarapita hai

Einzig DU bist in meinem Herzen, bist meine Gedanken
DU bist DER zu dem ich rufe
Jetzt mache mich zu DEINEM Werkzeug,
alles was ich bin – ist DEIN

Sri Krishna ! Govinda! Hari! Madhava! Acyuta Kesava!

The Guru

About the importance of the Guru:

“The seeker of wisdom does not need any other help than a real master.”
(Sankaracarya)

“By His grace the ocean of the cycle of births becomes a puddle.”

“Obedient, with constantly loving devotion, respect and moderate speech one may meet the real master and start the journey to self-realization.”

One single glance of the enlightened master makes the eyes look bright with joy immediately, the face shines forth and the heart beats faster in bliss. HE destroys the ignorance.

“The infinite darkness inside that even billions of fires, moons and suns cannot light up, the enlightened one banishes with a single look.”
(Sankaracarya)

“The Guru is Father,
the Guru is Mother,
the Guru is Vishnu,
the Guru is Shiva,
the Guru is the highest Brahman.”

“Praised be the Guru!
He makes the mute eloquent.
He makes the lame climb the mountain.”

“I bow down with reverence
to the holy lotus feet of the Guru
who resembles in his compassion
a thick rain-cloud that showers
on the people burnt by the
forest fires of the ever-changing world.
He is the Saviour!
Who attains him, reaches the oceans of salvation.”

(Vishvanatha Chakravart)

“The grace of the Guru is God’s grace.
Without the Guru’s grace where will be shelter?
His glory we praise and reflect on
as a morning, midday and evening prayer.
Full of love I bow down
to the holy feet of the Guru.”
(Guru hymn of Vishvanatha Chakravart)

“Until now I have dreamt. In my dream I walked through forests of illusion, birth by birth overwhelmed by all kinds of sorrows and sufferings, subject to rebirth and death and decay. The tiger of selfishness unceasingly jumped at me.Now, by your infinite compassion, o Master, I awoke from my dream. You released me forever! Reverence to You, o great Master, You are one with Brahman. You are one with the shining light that throws a shadow called “world”.”
(Shankaracharya)
