Who is a Guru? The Mundaka Upanishad says, ‘A teacher who is established in Brahman is the true Guru.’ Adi Sankara’s Vivekachudamani describes the true Guru as ‘……..a knower of the Self, who confers freedom from bondage…….one who is well-versed in the scriptures, taintless, desireless, a perfect knower of the Absolute, continually established in the Absolute.’

The term ‘Guru’ generally describes anyone who gives knowledge, that is, one who removes one’s ignorance.

Bhagvan Ramana says, ‘The Guru is both external and internal. From the ‘exterior’, He gives a push to the mind to turn inward; from the ‘interior’, He pulls the mind towards the Self and helps in the quieting of the mind. That is guru-kripa. There is no difference between God, Guru, and the Self.’ Adi Sankara’s Vivekachudamani says, ‘Rare and difficult are these three: a human birth, a burning desire for liberation, and association with Great Beings, spiritual giants, Satgurus.’

We already have this human birth. Let us strive towards the latter two diligently and with fervor, and use our beloved Mandir as an instrument towards this goal.
