Introduction

The Guru and Sanaatanadharma go together. The aspirant, sadhaka, seeks the unification with the Divine with the aid and blessings of his Guru, who makes the ascent both possible and easy. The Guru, Preceptor, is one, who out of love and compassion for his sishya, disciple, guides and leads him forward to attain Moksha, liberation or salvation.

Spiritual knowledge and wisdom are obtained only with the blessings and aid of the Guru. Parama Shiva Himself conveyed to His consort, Devi Parvati, a fund of knowledge and wisdom about the Guru, the guru's power and greatness and specified the way of paying adoration to the Guru in Guru Gita. Three adhyayas, chapters, in the latter part of Skaanda Purana, one of the most widely read of the eighteen Puranas written by Sage Vedavyas, also refeffed to reverentially as Vyasa Bhagawan. The greatness of Guru gita is brought out in a single sloka, which is worth repeating many times every day.

 

samsaara saagara
samuddharanaika mantram
brahmaadi deva muni
poojita Siddha mantram
daaridrya duhkha bhava
raga vinaasha mantram
vande mahaabhayaharau
guru raja mantram.

My salutations to the mantra, incantation, which is the only one that is capable of rescuing me from the sea of samsaara, family and the world; the mantra worshipped by Brahma, the deities and great seers; the mantra which is a remedy for all worldly maladies, poverty and grief; the mantra which is the sovereign of all mantras and the dispeller of all dire and mighty fears.

Dev Bhasha, geervaan, as it was called, Sanskrit has been the most sacred vehicle to convey and communicate things divine. Once spoken all over Bharatakhanda, our country, with else, today, even in the land where it is born, Sanskrit, though revered as ever, is not familiar to all. Hence this little attempt to give the Slokas in English transliteration followed by the meaning in English.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
