God has no specific name.
All names are attributed by man to God. Each name, like Padmanabha,
Hiranyagarbha, and Hiranmaya, has a profound inner meaning.
Spirituality is meant to explain the principle of Divinity and the
inner meaning of the names attributed to Him. One who follows the
spiritual path should make efforts to understand and experience the
principle of Divinity and propagate the same. But, man today has not
really understood what spirituality means. He is under the mistaken
notion that spirituality means merely offering worship and prayers to
God and performing rituals. People should be taught the inner
significance of spirituality and various names and forms attributed to
Guru Poornima is the day to pay our deep gratitude to all the great
Gurus or Masters who have happened on planet Earth. The Guru is the
one who dispels the darkness of ignorance and infuses the light of
awareness into our lives.
Guru is a person who has achieved the Ultimate Truth, the state of
enlightenment, as an experience and who can create the technology and
the techniques to reproduce the same experience in any human being.
He is the ultimate scientist of the Inner world because he is the one
who can initiate others into the same experience that happened in him.
He gives the ‘weapons of knowledge' through his words, body language
and the techniques he has developed. These, when used with awareness,
can simply pull you out of any kind of depression and negative
thinking and lead you to a positive, blissful living A teacher who
teaches others has had a teacher himself. The one who has no guru
above him is the true guru. The Sanskrit stanza that hails the guru as
Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheswara and as the Highest God (Parabrahman) is
The right approach is to consider Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheswara as the
guru. These three are symbolised by the three qualities (gunas) Brahma
is activity (rajas), Vishnu is serenity (sathva) and Siva is inertia (
thamas). The whole cosmos is constituted by these three qualities. The
three three are present in man. The trinity are present in the form of
the three qualities in every human heart.
Your heart should melt and flow toward God. Only then can you attain
His grace. People may talk as they please; do not be carried away by
them. Unmindful of hardships and difficulties, hold on to the
principle of divinity and reach the goal of life. Today, people lack
the will and determination to reach the goal of life. How can those
who do not understand the goal of life, attain it? True love cannot be
fragmented. One cannot have love for God as well as for ephemeral
objects and relationships. The love which is fragmented is artificial
only. You have only one heart. You cannot break it into pieces and
distribute to various people. It is not like a laddoo or sugar cane,
which can be broken into pieces and distributed. It is the eternal
truth. It is nectarous and full of bliss.
Ignoring the immortal bliss within, people tread the worldly path
thinking that bliss lies therein. It is only a figment of their
imagination. He is a true devotee who makes efforts to attain God with
full faith and determination without caring for trials and
