Discourse of Sadguru Sri Nannagaru at Hyderabad
Guru Poornima Celebration
Date: 25 Jul 2010
My Dear Soul - mates
Today is Vyaasa poornima, Guru poornima and Gyana poornima.
Vyaasa Maharshi and Valmiki Maharshi are both truths and to be renowned. Vyaasa
is re-incarnation of Mahavishnu. He is ocean of knowledge. He has "written
the Mahabharata which comprises of 1,00,000 slokas. Guru is a walking God. He
is dispeller of darkness. They are truth realized souls. One should worship and
respect Guru. It is a custom to respect Guru on this Guru poornima(Full
Human mind is never steady.
Clarify your doubts from the Guru otherwise you cannot get clarity. Anything is
possible by Gurus grace. Sri Rama is †gentleman God. The capital for knowledge
is urge, longing, craving to know the truth. Hearing, Hearing and Hearing the
subject then you will develop a liking to know it, Guruís guidance and help
will follow. Wait patiently and with prudence for Guruís grace without
expectation. You should see Guru with inner sight and not with mind and
sense-organs. Guru teaches with both spoken and written expressions with short
sentences too. Guru is always concerned about the disciple's welfare, future
progress and blesses with spiritual wealth. Guruís grace falls like rain.
There is a lot of foreign
matter in us, weaknesses, tendencies, behavior etc. Pray to Guru to remove
these and fill the mind with good qualities. Human qualities, body-boundedness
should get dried and burnt. To get liberation means to get liberated from that
which is not, for which the individual I, artificial I should get burnt. Then
the true I will get enlightened. The Bhagavad-Gita is a part of the
Mahabharata. It is the song divine sung by Sri Krishna- The administrator and
ruler, this was the spoken expression and the written expression was given by
Veda-Vyaasa, the great Guru therefore both being one and the same.
Bhagavad-Gita teaches human conduct behavior, mind-control, self-control,
proper understanding throughout the living. Arjuna is effort and Krishna is
kripa (Compassion,Grace). God takes the form of Guru and preaches. He sends his
grace whenever required.
People are usually envious but
they themselves lose health. Desires when fulfilled increase more and more. To
conquer a desire brings more joy than to satisfy it. Nothing is too
heavy for destiny. Likes and Dislikes spoil our mind. Watch your mind from
Wandering and Wavering. If u reach the no mind state there is no world. If the
truth is realized, there is no mind to control, no sorrow, no pain, and no
grief. The greatest thing is to stop worrying. Everything happens according
to the time. Who belongs to whom. There is Iswara-truth. Gods will prevail.
We all are toys in the hands of God. Richness, Poverty, Darkness, Ignorance,
Ego-Sense, to come out of it Guru is required. Ask with Satva, not Raja or
Tamo, Guru should feel like teaching. Emotion and depression are both thought
and mind. Except God and truth everything is thought. Where there is no
attachment there is no sorrow no more re-births. Laziness is a great sin
You try to purify and cleanse yourself. Learners and students should be humble. Power and money spoil the
man. The mind gets polluted. Do not interfere into others matters, the
ego-sense increases, Body-boundedness increases. All this is Maya(Illusion).
Without My Grace, Compassion, Mercy you cannot come out of it. You need equal
mindedness and even mindedness and total faith and living faith by which you
can move mountains. By total surrender, the mind gets cool and calm. Not what
you eat but what you digest makes you strong. One sentence is enough, One Sloka
is enough from the Bhagavad-Gita, when you understand and follow it here and
now you get bliss. Understanding itself is Yoga. Truth is ONE. Get
united with it. Teachers should teach lovingly.
Wish for the welfare of all. You are answerable for every
good and evil thought. Guru knows your faults and defects. Guru is capable of
everything. Gurus grace is strengthful. Holy company is very important. Daily
minimum ten minutes you should be with holy company. Guru is a walking god. His
touch, look, glance, word, walking, everything is grace, even his anger is
grace. His presence and vibrations will work on you. Have pure and steady faith
towards Guru and God. Silence is Gold and Speech is Silver.
Purify the mind. Try to eliminate the faults. Publicity is a disease.
Follow do's and don'ts. Be
away from prohibited actions. Learn to purify your mind without ego, dedicate
it to God. All thoughts are shadows. Birth is a thought and Death also
is a thought. I am that I am. That truth is Deathless and Birthless. The
whole year Guru serves you calmly, silently. He is a large ocean of mercy. On
this day you should serve respect, honor and worship the Guru, everyone of us.
LOVE TO YOU PEACE TO YOU
THANKS TO ALL
