Dear Sai Bandhus,

Dear Sai bandhus,

Guru is none but the “Shiva Manifest”. In reality, the unmanifest which is the source cause for the seeding, sustenance and sublimation of the entire universe, the eternal, the unending and the one who has no beginning is difficult to contemplate on. Hence the Unmanifest donns a form to uplift the fallen from this samsara and bestows onto them the unparallel Janmaraahitya from this cycle of births and deaths. Such a manifest principle of the Brahman is extolled as “Guru” in our scriptures. Hence, it would be a misnomer if we say “Guru is equal to Brahman”, because here, by saying so, we are trying to rationalize or try to equalize the status of the former with latter, in reality, there is no room for trying to equate Guru with Supreme One because, it’s a clear dictum establish in our great scriptures like Guru Geetha, that it is the Supreme One himself who will manifest in flesh and blood as a Guru. Hence, we should clearly understand and firmly fix in our minds that “ GURU IS NONE BUT THE BRAHMAN HIMSELF WITH NONE EQUALS TO HIM”.

Sri Sai Sahasranama Bhashya

 

208th naamavali continued….. (OM SRI SAI EKESHWARA PRATEETAYENAMAH)

The essence of Upanishads say “Brahmah ekah evah….” [Brahman alone exists], again they say “ Ayam Aatma brahmah” [Brahman is this Self]. So, for us to understand these words and attain the same need to do- Gurupraapti  (resort to a Guru’s feet who himself has realized oneness with Brahman and very clearly understands that this creation is but a mere illusion), after resorting to such a Sadguru, one should offer himself unconditionally (Sarvasya sharanaagati) at the feet of his master with a firm dictum, “ Come what may be… Oh Lord! I shall never forsake your feet, redeem me from this samsara”. Then after complete surrender, do nothing but meekly follow his instructions (Guru aajnaanuvarti) and accept whatever he gives us in our lives as mahaprasada. If we do so then sure are we to realize that Only Brahman permeates this entire creation and even beyond it and at the same time also realize that we are none but that “Eternal One Himself”.

Salutations to Lord Sai who is none but that Eternal One Brahman himself who manifested in flesh and blood for the sake of his devotees and showed them the path of aatma saakshatkaara
