Guru Gita
« on: January 21, 2009, 01:17:40 PM »
It is by the grace of the Guru that Brahma, Vishnu and Siva became
capable of performing their respective duties -- creation, preservation and dissolution. (Sloka 103)

Even the devas, the kinnaras, gandharvas, pitris, yakshas and sages
like Tumburu and others do not know the right technique of service
to the Guru. (Sloka 104)

People who are well versed in Tarkasastra, in the Vedic chandas,
knowers of divine beings like goods, Karmavadins, people well
versed in worldly sacrifices -- none of them knows the Guru Tattva
in its entirety. (Sloka 105)

On account of great egoism, pride, power of Tapas and education
people roam about in this world like pots in a Persian wheel.
(Sloka 106)

Neither those who perform great sacrifices, nor Yogis, nor those
who practisse severe austerities are liberated without the true
knowledge of Guru Tattva. (Sloka 107)

Those who are averse to the service of the preceptor, cannot expect
to be liberated from the cycle of birth and death, Samsara, even if
they are Gandharvas, Pitris, Yakshas, Charanas, Rishis, Siddhas
or Devas. (Sloka 108)
