OM Namo Bhagavate
Blessed devotees and great yogis,
On the occasion of Gurupurnima I send my profound love and blessings to all of you.
Guru is the human form that consciously carries the force of GOD. And Purnima is the night when the Moon manifests itself in its totality, in its fullness. Gurupurnima therefore symbolizes the day of manifestation of the Guru who dwells in the heart of a disciple. On this day the Guru aspires to see the manifestation of the Guru Shakti in the form of his disciple. A true sadguru always wants to see his disciple as a guru before he drops his mortal body. This is known as guruparampara or guru tradition. The guru-disciple relationship rests on this foundation of aspiration and resolve. This bonding binds the liberated guru to the aspiring disciple. Gurupurnima is not a day of celebration with the human guru. It is a day of solemn resolve, a day of sincere surrender to Gurushakti. Every enlightened guru knows this.
When I think of any one of you my heart rejoices with joy and I feel the delight of your presence in my life, your presence on earth when I am on earth. We both are on earth but none of us are earthly.
In my 24 years of conscious living to see the manifestation of the Guru in you I have constantly worked to guide you to your own fulfillment. I want you to reach your fullness and make others feel that you are truly full of Love, wisdom and compassion. For you I exist, for you I live and for you I strive. I don’t have any other purpose on earth. Please remember this.
My form may be far away from you but I am eternally present within you. Just close your eyes for a moment and think of me and you will feel I am there in you. My love for you is not based on any expectation. It is resting on the foundation of my sacrifice and your surrender. I can’t exist without your aspiration and you can’t manifest your true self without Me. Let this understanding hold us together.
Through this letter I send my Love to all of you and I promise and assure you that I will never leave you until I have seen your own manifestation. On this sacred Gurupurnima day I beg you to give me this assurance as your GURU DAKHINA to Me.
Blessings and Love.
