The Guru is the in dweller, the antaryami of the heart. He is the inner light which dispels all darkness, the inner bliss which devours all sorrow, the inner wisdom which destroys all ignorance. May his light illumine the path ahead of us, may his bliss envelop us and may his wisdom guide us. The Guru is the love and bliss of the heart, seek him nowhere else. He is where ‘you’ are not. He manifests when you cease to be. He is full when you are empty. He appears when ‘you’ disappear. Seek the Guru within for he is the very bliss of your own true self. The Guru is the inner refuge, the sanctuary within. He is the stream which flows into the ocean of ananda, the sea of shanti that is the self.
