    Default The Guru Gita - recited by Mark Griffin

    Mark Griffin recites the text of the Guru Gita (Song of the Guru) - here in this text ,Guru means = The Higher Self - at the Hard Light Retreat on the 26th lunar anniversary of Swami Muktananda's mahasamadhi.


    There are thousands of stories from all over the world of the great things spiritual masters do. The Guru Gita, a lesser known cousin of the Bhagavad Gita, reveals the archetypal spiritual master as an incarnation of God.

    The Guru Gita has one of the most brilliant openings of any scripture: Siva, third member of the Hindu trinity, annihilator of ignorance and ultimately of creation, is in his heaven surrounded by saints and sages. Seeing him bow to the ground before someone in the group, his wife Parvathi asks, All creation is subject to you. To whom do you bow? Siva says, I bow to the Guru, and then explains what he means in 352 verses.

    Sri Guru Gita is a splendid exposition of an ancient method. The Guru Gita contains the instruction imparted by Lord Siva to his consort the Goddess Parvati.

    Truth can never be told, it must be imparted. In the same way truth can never be learned it must be experienced.

    Herein lies the importance of the Guru Principle, one of the core topics of the Guru Gita, whose meaning is,The light that dispels the darkness.

    The Guru Gita states, a Guru in human form is the supreme servant because the sole object of his existence is to transmit or impart to the beloved disciple the Light prevalent in His/Her consciousness thus activating the Light which lies latent in the consciousness of the disciple.

    This explains why, in the Guru Gita, the first Truth imparted to Parvati is: Thou art That.

    From that point in the Guru Gita onward Lord Siva proceeds to describe the conditions necessary for the disciple to maintain the chalice of his/her consciousness in the proper position and condition to receive the luminous unction proceeding from the Guru till the moment comes, when in complete awareness, he/she may be able to exclaim I AM THAT!, I AM that I AM !

    My Guru ~ Paramahansa Yogananda~

    If you want to be a doctor you don't get to be one by reading a book. You need a teacher, someone to train you. Same thing with God. If you want to know God you need a Guru, a guide to show you
    the way, IMHO.

    Love,
