Guru (the master)

Guru (the master)

गुरु गोविन्द दोऊ खड़े काको लागूं पायं।
बलिहारी गुरु आपने जिन गोविन्द दियो बताय।।

Guru (master), the most important guide in spirituality. All Saints have confirmed the need of Guru for liberation of the Jeeva. Therefore, there are many Gurus (masters) and many Chelas (disciples) in India. Generally, people follow their family and friends in selection of a Guru. But for Sadhak and Jigyasu (curious), each moment is important. Therefore, if the selection goes wrong, the precious time of the life may get lost. Therefore, all sadhaks and jigyasus are always in search of "Right Guru". And similarly the real Guru is in search of "Right Chela". 

How to judge a Right Guru? I posed the question to the Saint at Saint Mehi Ashram, Bhagalpur in 2005. He replied very nicely.

"If you are walking under a hot Sun in summer days for a long and suddenly find a Banyan tree on the way. You will get relief, peace and happiness as soon as you reach under the tree. You don't need any description for that. Similarly, the Sadhak get peace, relief and shelter as soon as he reaches to a Right Guru."

Feeling of Inner Peace is the key to judge the Right Guru. Then his devotion to the Guru bring knowledge for him. However, in Sadhana, not the Guru but to become a right Chela is more important. 

श्रद्धावान् लभते ज्ञानम्, शंशयात्मा विनश्यति।
