Dear Fellow Initiate,
To shape the disciple's mind into a beautiful vessel for the divine name,
To wash off the darkening shadows of spiritual sunsets of karmas with the brilliant light of the full moon of knowledge,
To suffer for the disciple to uplift him/her from the mirages and quagmires of sorrowful bondage - as we recall -
This is the Guru's work within the eternal lineage in which compassionate grace is the primary link.
At this sacred time we pay homage in gratitude to the divinity that takes the form of an incarnate being, to us a personal guide, from time to time - in whose grace our being as a spirit can breathe again, to aspire to realise its luminosity. May we continue to meet him daily.
Swami Veda Bharati
