GURU VANDANA

GURU VANDANA




Akhand mandla karam, vyaptam yena characharam
tat padam darshitam yena, tasmai shri gurave namah
I bow to that Shri Guru who pervades the whole universe constituting of beings moving and unmoving and by whom is shown the state of Tat (Supreme Brahman)

Dhyana mulam gurur murtih, puja mulam gurur padam
mantra mulam gurur vakyam, moksha mulam gurur kripa
The Guru's Form is the root of meditation
The Guru's Feet are the root of worship
The Guru's Word is the root of mantra
The Guru's Grace is the root of liberation

Shri Guru charan saroj raj, vandat main kar jor
vighna mite pragate vibho, hoye vimal mati mor
I salute with folded hands the lotus feet of my Guru
the dust of whose feet removes the obstacles, creates faith and purifies the intellect

Vandon charan saroj guru, mudmangal agar jehi sevat nat hote hai
bhav sagar se par
I pray (salute to the lotus feet of my Guru) who is the reservoir of joy and auspiciousness
by serving whom the beings cross the ocean of sansar (worldiness)

Guru ke sumiran matra se, nashat vighna anat
ta te sarva arambe mein dyavat hain sab sant
By merely constantly remembering the Guru, lots of obstacles are removed or destroyed
therefore all Saints meditate upon the Guru before the start of any undertaking

Gurur Brahma, Gurur Vishnu, Gurur Devo Maheshvara, Gurur sakshat param Brahma
tasmai Shri Guruve Namah
Guru is the Creator (Brahma), Guru is the Preserver (Vishnu), Guru is the Destroyer (Maheshvara)
Guru is verily the Supreme Absolute
Prostration to that Guru
