Description

The Guru-disciple relationship is the bedrock of spirituality. For the disciple there is no one higher than the Guru. His attunement with his spiritual mentor is a pressing need; a seamless communion with the Guru the ladder on which he climbs up the path to deeper self-investigation. This connection has to be tenacious as well as flexible, ardent as well as judicious, vibrant but relaxed, pure yet easy. The Guru and disciple are after all one and the same: The entirety of spirituality lies in this realization. Though the teachings of Guruji, the Satguru of the author, this book shows how a disciple may commence laying the foundation of this supreme tie and go about the spiritual journey. The teachings, given out through the shabads, are universal yet unique. They are this-worldly yet capable of ushering the sincere practitioner to the arms of the beloved infinite. They establish the grounds of humanity and of its dharma. They show that the Satguru is alone real, the pole star of the disciple, the husbandman and protector of his soul, the truth that the earnest disciple and a misguided humanity seek in varied ways. This book is a pilgrimage into the sacred territory of the Satguru's Word, a fulfilment in part of Guruji's instruction to his disciple. Guruji's words here are a great benediction, mapping our way to a common realm of love and light. They are the Word made vatic and sacrosanct, empowered by the truth-charge of his great being.

About the Author

Jitendra Pant

Vague promptings of the self, difficult circumstances and disconsolation were the context in which the author found himself at Guruji's feet. His refuge, sought for inarticulately, was readily given. That marked the author's continuing volte face, as it were, from the misconceptions of his being. For not only did Guruji provide easy shelter and warm food, he led one to that very ancient fad yet unutterably new destination: the Truth. By an act of spiritual combustion, whose trick he alone knows, Guruji gave all those who came to him an undying aspiration for the self. The author caught it, too. While the author perseveres in error and dim sightings of the light, Guruji continues tirelessly to ferry him - and all those who seek his refuge, even if through the agency of this book - to the shores of his own being.
