person is ignorant by birth, enveloped in darkness, completely lacking the power of discrimination. He does not know what is right or wrong, what is the meaning and highest goal of a human life, nor which path to walk on to attain success, fulfilment and above all liberation (Moksha).
Only a teacher, a Sadguru in the real sense, who is full of divine energy achieved through inner cleansing and self-discipline (Tapas), whose personality has transcended the limits of the vast sky, deepest ocean and majestic Himalayas, who is filled with generosity and compassion and who has a willingness to share our joys and sorrows, is able to show us the correct path.
To be close to such a Guru is not an ordinary event – it is in fact a process of transformation, one of becoming an insignificant droplet into a vast ocean. One who acquires the Guru’s grace, needs nothing else. One who receives Initiation from him and becomes one with him, will never lack anything in his life. Really blessed are those who will have a Guru in their life time.
