Understand Gurudev, Dharma and truth
Hello dear member friends,
We, from the desk of Sri Viswa Vignana Vidya Adhyathmika Peetham wish you all a very Happy Guru Purnima. Our guru parampara blessed whole humanity with priceless literature that guides us at all levels (physical, mental and astral) of life. Many people fail to concentrate on literature and complain about complexity in it. A book portrays mind of the author, his thoughts and if it is spiritual philosophic book it is jam packed with spiritual energy and blessings of the author in the form of word. That’s why a philosophic book is called as “aksharam” (in telugu language aksharam means single character of the alphabet and a book is integration of so many words) which has no death-eternal.
Every human being born as a child is free. A child is naturally spiritual and we feel happy to see children and state them as divine. With time, child grows as adult and in the process develops complex set of emotions, physical expressions and beliefs. A person’s mind set is influenced by the parents, teachers and pal group. The type of education and environment in which the individual is bought up also plays an important role in creating strong imprints over the brain and we clearly see an individual with all these impressions. Along with this, an individual has hidden self. One cannot rise easily and free from the imprints he/she had ingrained from childhood. In search of knowledge and solace, when we approach a Guru, we have strong resistance in understanding him because ‘self’ with built-in identity comes in between as a barrier. Ego is a big hurdle in understanding Guru and his teachings. We change his words as per our mind’s impressions. The clarity in understanding will surface when we surrender to Sath Guru and lose our self. At that time the physical is free and Guru’s light will flow freely, teaching the unknown realities hidden inside the human, an infinitesimal of divine. When we are free of our self ego, then we can attune to the text in the philosophic books and can easily grasp underlying true concepts and author’s real expression and there is no confusion.
How to be free from Ego and break the wall between Guru and self?
It is through sadhana. The practice will let you break all inhibitions, understand true self and Guru. Surrenderance will happen in the process. The self will dissolve in the nobility of Sath Guru’s preaching. So, on the eve of this Guru Purnima, let us all rededicate ourselves to do more practice and break the strong iron walls of ignorance aroused out of illusion and attain salvation within this physical with the grace of Sath Guru.
