For the spiritual aspirant, the Guru is a shining light, the great guide on the spiritual path. It is through love and devotion to the Guru that the disciple reaches and cultivates a relationship with the divine.
This poem, written by Chandana Saraswati, is a wonderful example of such love. The last two lines of the poem, “Na guroradhikam … Sivasasanatah,” are actually verses from the Guru Gita: “There is nothing more than the Guru … This is the instruction of Shiva!”
May we all be blessed to keep the Guru in our minds, their mantras on our lips, and their love in our hearts!
