Maharishi Describes Proximity to Guru Dev

Sri Brahmananda Saraswati, Guru Dev

The pouring rain outside reminds me of the pouring out of grace, love, support, friendship and compassion that comes from Guru Dev, Sri Brahmananda Saraswati. Though any view of Him is possible, these days He appears so brightly, so much light flooding out of Him that His physical form is evident, though mostly clear almost white light, suffusing me inside and out.

He embodies pure cosmic power and fulfillment, and just His constant presence makes every dream of mine come true – no exaggeration. Even the untimely rain now following a winter drought, is the answer to my heart.

Please enjoy this quote from Maharishi about Guru Dev. He describes this dynamic and intimate relationship perfectly: 😊

“The depth of Vedic Wisdom for life is so enormous that it is completely self-sufficient in its articulating everything. One would never know from where one is acting. When I hear all these sentiments, the only thing I could say, I started to find out from where I was doing – I was not doing – it was happening. From place to place I was moving around. It was happening, but it was not I that was instrumental to it in any way. So I find no source of it. This is because unfathomable is the field of Natural Law; unfathomable is the field of Natural Law. And it happens, and it happens, and it works out the destiny of everyone. You go to find this logic, that logic, that logic, that logic – you are not able to pinpoint from where it is happening, and ultimately you are left to something that you can only say, Jai Guru Dev. It’s from there that it is happening.

‘I remember a Vedic saying, “Na Guror adhikam, na Guror adhikam, na Guror adhikam” – There is nothing greater than Guru Dev, nothing greater than Guru Dev. Gurur Brahma – this is how Guru Dev is defined – “Gurur Vishnur, Gurur Devo Maheshwara”, and above all, “Guru Sakshat param Brahma tasmai Shri Gurave namah”. I end up with something beyond anything, and that is the reality of life. You can’t find the source, because the course is all over. Where ends intellect, where ends everything – in the Transcendental is the reality of all possibility. So, Glory to Guru Dev. Glory to Guru Dev. Glory to Guru Dev. And we got to that course of action; we got to that course of action from where everything is a possibility, automatically.“
