Master the Mind - Episode 27

Surrender at the feet of the guru

In this discourse, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai extols the guru-śiṣya paramparā tradition that has been the cornerstone of spiritual evolution over thousands of years of bhāratīya culture. In these times of instant gratification, when knowledge is disseminated online, Sadguru reinforces the virtues of adopting traditional means of learning to attain the wisdom that takes one to one’s innate Divinity. Indeed, the relevance of the ‘inner-net’ cannot be underscored better during these times of the internet. The discourse establishes gurubhakti as the foundation for humanity to attain Self-Realisation. Drawing upon a parallel from Paramahamsa Yogananda’s life, the narrative expounds the characteristics and pre-requisites of a true śiṣya that lead him to surrender to the guru for self-emancipation. With additional references from the muṇḍakopaniṣad, Sadguru beautifully explains how embracing the values of the glorious guru-śiṣya paramparā leads man to his goal of attaining Divinity!
