The Three Gurus

Today Gurudeva talks about blaming others for what happens to us, and how we do this only when we don't recognize the law of karma and that what happens to us is created by us. He talks about Sri Vishwa Guru Maharaj, that is, the world, the guru that takes over when we leave behind our first guru, our parents and our second guru, our minister, priest, rabbi, imam or swami. Then we enter the world and "learn by our mistakes," a kind of situation teaching, Gurudeva calls it.

Once a profound relationship is developed with Lord Muruga, then with the guru's permission and guidance, true yoga may commence. Otherwise, no matter how long one sits in meditation, no matter how hard one tries, it is just sitting, it is just trying.
