Preface

Meaning : Only by the grace of the Guru can the disciple attain his ultimate benefaction, that is spiritual progress ..

Once when we were with our Sadguru H.H. Bhaktaraj Maharaj (Baba) in Indore, Baba said, "The Path of Devotion (Bhaktiyoga) is the best among all paths (yogiis) 'in Spirituality". We had the audacity to reply, "No, Baba the Path of Guru's Grace (Gumkmpayoga) is supreme." Baba was overjoyed and said, "You are absolutely right l"

Seekers who have practiced Spirituality through various paths for several years and not progressed beyond a particular spiritual level yearn to attain the Guru's grace. On the other hand seekers who have made spiritual progress by the grace of the Guru get spiritual experiences to prove the absolute supremacy of this path. One cannot perceive the special features of a Guru by looking at His gross body with ordinary vision. That is why this book describes the qualities of a Guru, His teaching a disciple both verbally as well as through a dimension beyond words, the Guru-disciple relationship, the all pervading nature of the Guru from His point of view, His behavior like an average person, His behaviour with other saints, the Guru hierarchy, the importance of India in the context of Gurus, etc.

Only those who have experienced happiness of the dualistic state (dvait) of a disciple and Bliss and Serenity in the non-dual state (advait) of a Guru will realise why Saint Tukaram has written the following line in one of His devotional songs (abhangs)
