Tribute to Guruji - Guru Samarpana


Guru Samarpana


In the dark woods of my mind, a directionless journey was on

Endless were the questions that pierced my heart

Fear of not knowing was burning my soul

World appeared as though meaningless

My life boat caught in a tsunami of deep dark ocean waters!!!

Life when I knew not…

A casual encounter only for brief moments

With someone whom I never met before but who knew me “through”

Face reminded me of an ancient sage

Tejas being an aura for the divine child

Expressions revealed burning sincerity and words of wisdom

In touch with the eternal source of bliss ever uninterrupted

Eyes filled with infinite grace and compassion

Divine concern that eclipsed mother’s love

Unwavering determination to transform the world

When I knew not even the meaning of the word “Guru”

An encounter that shook my bosom!!!

I lay defenseless in front of the eyes that see through my soul

Brief be the encounter, revived a connection of several lives

Source of Sun that dispels darkness

Light house that shows path to the shore

Pole star guiding me in the journey through the web of Karma

Could someone love me more than I?

Awed at the dimensions of Guru

As though sun light rushes through when windows open

Mind permeated with Guru’s grace

Founded on Sraddha, began a new leaf in my life story!!!

Numerous were his avatars - mother, father, brother, friend and teacher

Every place being teaching ground – home, ashram, temples, lecture halls, sidewalks and shopping malls…

Uncultured rogue was I filled with anger, desire, ego, greed and what not

Seated on a fearful mind ever restless never content

Infinite is his grace to see a sculpture through this raw rock

Unconventional are his tools – love, compassion and patience

Began the ascetic life of a Guru to bring about transformation in me!!!

Lessons on nurturing the temple called Body

Pranayama techniques to catch the twin called Mind

Gayatri mantra upadesa to go back to the source

Art of greasing the practice with love, devotion and surrender

Revolutionary thoughts – “Freedom from the Known”

Novel ideas – “24x7 Yoga”

Guru’s sankalpa for my “Antar Darshan”

Sutras for blossoming of mind

Human out of uncultured rogue

Divine out of Human

Eternal are the efforts of Guru ever flowing

Guru’s infinite love, my life source

Guru’s leela, subdue of my ego and evolution of surrender

Guru’s krupa, anchoring discrimination in the muddy soil of my mind

Guru’s grace, answers to my asked and unasked questions

Guru’s sadhana, expression of my blossoming mind in life moments

Guru’s will, projects executed through me as instrument

Guru’s sankalpa, his journey with me, for me to gain my grace

Guru, the divine force that filled my life with auspiciousness 

“I” am not alone

This “I” represents thousands of families “Touched by the Grace”

Guru’s tapasya, Harmony, Health and Happiness in our families

Divine will, having written the last chapter, Guru leaving the physical plane

Have I been robbed off my life source?

Have I been thrown into darkness by the loss of all permeating light?

Whom shall I run to share my joys?

Where will I find the bosom of infinite compassion to shed my tears?

Have I lost of my source of discrimination?

Am I lost in the ocean of life and death as an orphan?

In depths of sorrow and grief with a heavy heart, I am…

Strange is my state of mind, counter to his lifelong teachings

Mind deceives itself at the speed of light

Mind engulfs in ignorance with intensity

Guru is beyond time, space and causation and is Satchidananda

Guru is never dead nay can death touch eternity

Guru is a link through several lives

Guru is bound until the moment of absolute freedom

Connect with that eternal source Oh Mind!

Guru’s tapasya, for everyone’s Antar Darshan

Guru’s path, for our absolute freedom

Guru’s teachings, essence of Vedas

Gone is the search for new knowledge

Begins the courageous journey of Sadhana to practice what has been taught

Let us Arise, Awake and stop not until the goal is reached

Offer as oblation our life, wealth and soul into the fire of Sadhana

Smash away thoughts of lethargy and inertia

Burn in the fire of “Vairagya”, all restless thoughts of imbalanced actions

Embrace noble and balanced thoughts as “Abhyasa Yagna”

Unwavering determination and prayers to be the purest instruments of Guru

Discharge duty with sense of freedom

Nurturing health, protecting harmony in relations

Reducing speed of the mind, loosening the grip of emotions, 

Rejoicing in peace and happiness

Sharing fruits of Sadhana

Let us live as Role Models that our Guru aspired us to be

With unbroken sankalpa to surrender at thy lotus feet

Accept reminder of our mortal lives in thy service

Guruve Saranam

Guruve Saranam

Guruve Saranam
