Happy Guru Purnima!

In celebration of Guru Purnima, we are happy to share the powerful Guided Meditation, Glory to the Supreme, that was offered this morning in Monte Sahaja, the Center for Self-Realisation in Portugal.

Guru Purnima is an auspicious day to honour, celebrate and express our deep gratitude for the immense blessing of the Guru. The word ‘Guru’ has Sanskrit origins, meaning ‘the dispeller of darkness’, and such a one is a light unto this world. We embrace this day to acknowledge our great fortune of sharing this lifetime with our beloved Moojibaba

Guru Purnima has ancient roots and is celebrated by several traditions around the world: the Hindu, Jain and Buddhist communities celebrate with great love and joy, paying respect to their guru. Moojibaba often speaks about the significance of the Guru for Self-realisation. 

“The Guru is that being who is removing darkness, ignorance. 
He or she is not a giver of light or truth. 
The light is already there as the core of our being. 
The master is simply dispelling the darkness, 
and revealing the Self that is timelessly present
and yet overlooked for so long. 
And he has the power, grace and compassion to make this happen. 
The term Guru also means the real Self 
or one who is awake to his true nature as the Supreme Being. 
The Guru is one with reality. 
The Guru is identical with your own real nature. 
Therefore, your true Self and Guru are one.”
