Guru himself is the creator, sustainer and the destroyer. He is verily the very transcendental divinity, (the timeless life-principle, which is the very essence of the creator etc.) My reverential salutations to that glorious teacher.

The basis of my meditation is the image of my Guru, that of my worship his feet. I derive my mantra from his word, my salvation through his grace.
