Book Description

Publishers' Note

In spite of much that has been written on the concept of a spiritual Guru, there is still a good deal of confusion, misunderstanding, and skepticism in the public mind on his vital matter.

Is a Guru absolutely necessary? Who is a Satguru? How far can be help his Chela (disciple)? What are the duties of a disciple? What is the meaning of Initiation? Want of Clear-cut and definite answers to these and related questions often impedes the spiritual progress of earnest aspirants.

Under the circumstances, the present book by Satguru Sivanandaji Maharaj should come as a boon to many. Within is pages, the reader will find an authoritative, succinct and bold elucidation of the entire subject of guru-disciple relationship.

We have great pleasure in releasing this book for the benefit of spiritually thirsty men and women all over the world. May the blessings of the lord and the Brahma-vidya Gurus be upon all!
