Grace of a Guru
« on: October 22, 2008, 05:17:04 PM »
Bhagavan Ramana while answering questions about Guru Krupa,
or Guru's Grace has said:

"Guru is Atma.  In certain cases people get dissatisfaction in worldly
life and perform poojas etc., Even though these poojas are for a
selfish wish, the person continues to do such poojas and meditation
and eventually wants to know the God.  At that time a human Guru
comes to him to give upadesa.  This makes him calm and he does
dhyana to quieten the mind further.  The peaceful, non vacillating
Space is Atma.  Guru is both outside and within.  The outside Guru
pushes his mind into the Self. The Self pulls him from outside to inside.
God, Guru and Atma is one and the same.  ......

So long as you consider your body real, an outside Guru may become
necessary.  When this falsity drops off, the Guru from inside operates
more and he will not be different from Atma, or the Self within.
