Living Guru
« on: July 13, 2008, 08:36:42 PM »
Is a living guru absolutely necessary? 
Oh Arunachala, blazing fire of Jnana, in my heart I pray and think of Thee from afar, root out the ego, merging me in the Self.

Dear non duel,  at the outset, my comp did not work for 15 days
due to some unknown problem, hence there is some break in my
prattiling!  For most of us, the idea of a living guru appeals more,
because we are so much used to names and forms.  Again not one
living guru, one seeks several living gurus!  Bhagavan has said on
many occasions that the devotees need not worry about being in
a body permanently.  Bhagavan lived 70 years in His body as an
'avatara' to drive home the Truth but it is too much to expect Him
to live always in body.  The Guru need not be a living Guru.  His
Presence is always felt by genuine seekers even today.  For people
who seek miracles, He is causing miracles even today.  For example,
after 15 days, He has set right my comp on a fee of $ 6.00.  No parts
changed, no parts added, only a simple correction by a young engineer!
I was only praying to Him:   "You have made me go without even doing
something in your glory?  Why?"  Then I chanted the famous Tiruvachakam verse, " You know what I want.  You will give me all that
you want.  You are unreachable even to Bramha and Vishnu, who always
wanted something or other from you.  You have always given me what
I had wanted.  Even you know what I have to want from you, and that is what you want!"  Arunachala Siva.
