Message on the occasion of Gurupournima
His Holiness Shri Shri Shri Balmanjunath Swami
‘In the event of distress, in past, disciple used to surrender unto his Sadguru and the Guru used to protect the disciple. When both Hari and Har used to get angry, only Guru could protect everyone. We should be slaves (servitors) of our Guru, only then we will attain salvation. Everyone knew importance of Guru in the past, but in today’s modern world, i.e. in Kaliyug era, people are unaware of the importance of the Guru. Seekers of Sanatan Sanstha are performing spiritual practice under the guidance of their Guru and by His grace. They set an example of how Guru and their disciples should be. Guru progresses one from ignorance to wisdom. Our parents are our first Guru in our childhood and subsequently teachers in the school. All of us are already aware that, Shri Dattatrey, Shri Raghavendra Swamiji, Satya Saibaba were all Gurus. Lakhs of people attained Moksha with the blessings of Guru. We should surrender unto our Guru and obey Him.
Presently the work of Sanatan Dharma, i.e. Hindu Dharma, practiced in Sanatan Ashram under the guidance of Guru has spread all over the country. May this mission of nation building and protection of Dharma flourish and let the Ashram of Sanatan Sanstha witness it. Blessings of Shri Vidhyachaudeshwari Devi are always there with this mission and Devi Herself will carry it forward. Blessings of Devi are on everyone for this auspicious work of Gurupornima.’
