Q & A ith Gurudev

पूज्य गुरुदेव के प्रवचन
पंद्रहवाँ ४५ दिवसीय गहन ध्यान अनुष्ठान समारोह समर्पण आश्रम, दांडी महाशिवरात्रि, दिनांक ११ मार्च, २०२१
The Guru's Words are Unchallengeable!
The words of the Guru are like unfailing predictions, and are bound to come true. No power has the capacity to stall them, and even God cannot undo what the Guru says and desires to do.
आइए, शपथ लें..!
एक शिष्य के जीवन में भी सबसे अधिक महत्त्व मात्र एक ही पहलू का हैवह हर साँस में गुरु की ओर उन्मुख हो। भूल से भी बागियों की ओर रुख करके गुरु से बेमुख न हो जाए। क्याकि गुरु से बेमुख होने का अर्थ है-शिष्यत्व का दागदार हो जाना! शिष्यत्व की हार हो जाना!
“Once, in 2007, a small group including me were traveling with Gurudev in Kenya. We had flown to show him the wild animals in the jungle. He was in a car ahead of us. Driving at a slow pace behind him, what we saw was quite mesmerizing. A pack of lions surrounded his car and were walking around it.”
