A Perspective: On Guru

om ajñāna-timirāndhasya jñānāñjana-śalākayā
chakṣur unmīlitaṁ yena tasmai śrī-gurave namaḥ

I was born in the darkest ignorance, and my guru, my spiritual master, opened my eyes with the torch of knowledge. I offer my respectful obeisances unto him.

Who is a Guru?

What are the qualities of an ideal Guru?

सिद्धं सत्संप्रदाये स्थिरधियमनघं श्रोत्रियं ब्रह्मनिष्ठं

सत्त्वस्थं सत्यवाचं समयनियतया साधुवृत्त्या समेतम् ।

डम्भासूयादिमुक्तं जितविषयगणं दीर्घबन्धुं दयालुं

स्खालित्ये शासितारं स्वपरहितपरं देशिकं भूष्णुरीप्सेत् ॥ १॥
