Essence-

Hindu scriptures exhort the importance of Mata, pita, Guru before God. Mother and father are our early teachers who impart values, culture, give us love, education so that we may be able to lead a meaningful and fulfilling life. As the childhood passes by and reality of life sinks in; many stray in the path of our lives. A guru becomes very important as a beacon of light to guide us. Fortunate are those who are able to find their Guru or Master; rather it is the Master who finds the shishya. Great saints have always told us to hold on to the feet of our Master.  ‘Manasa Bhajore Guru Charanam.’. “O Mind! Pray at the feet of the Guru who is the only one who will redeem you from the cycle of birth and death. Take refuge in Him; He incarnates time to time to take onto Himself your burdens and lead you to the path of self-realisation. He needs only your devotion and not the external paraphernalia of worship items.” Let us understand the Guru tatwa and follow the Master’s teachings. Guru is not a person; it is a tatwa. A devotee or disciple can claim to be one; only when his/her Guru’s reflection is seen in them; meaning that the disciple follows and lives the teaching of the Guru.
