Gurupurnima 2018 celebration in Jadan Ashram, Rajasthan, India
26 - 27 July 2018
On the holy occasion of Gurupurnima, a satsang program was organised in Jadan Ashram. As per tradition, throughout the whole night bhajans were sung, Swamiji gave lectures, and in the morning there was traditional Pada Puja to the lotus feet of Sri Gurudeva.
“The Guru principle is the eternally valid principle for the development of consciousness that leads creation from unreality to reality, from the darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge. In its purest form, this cosmic principle manifests and reveals itself on Earth as a divine incarnation or a spiritual Master.
The only one worthy of our complete trust is the BRAHMANISHTHA SHROTRIYA SATGURU who has already trodden the path and reached the goal. Only the Satguru knows the direction and how he is able to help us in every situation. God is everywhere; nevertheless, we must seek our path to God in our consciousness, whilst simultaneously holding tightly onto a piece of string that is guiding us. In Sanskrit this 'guiding string' is called Guru.”
