Saint Sahjo Bai on Guru Grace: Ram Taju Pai Guru Na Bisaru in MP3- Very nice voice & music
Sahjo Bai has told a lot about the importance of meditation in spiritual path but here she only focus on the Grace of Guru and compares Guru with the God.
Ram Taju pai hari na bisaru, Guru ke sam hari ko na niharu,
Hari ne janam diyo jag maahi, Guru ne aavagaman chutaahi,
Hari ne paanch chor diya saatha, Guri ne layi chutaaya anaantha,
Hari ne kutamb jaal mein geri, Guru ne kaati mamta beri,
Hari ne rog bhog urjhaayo, Guri jogi kar sabahi chutaayo,
Hari ne karma bharam bharmayaa, Guru ne aatam roop lakhayo,
Hari ne moso aap chupaayo, Guru deepak de taahi dikhayo,
Fir Hari bandhmukti gati laayo, Guru ne sabahi bharma mitayo,
Charan Das par tan man vaaru, Guru na taju Hari ko taji daaru.
In Buddhism, the Three Jewels also called Triratna, the essential for those embarking on the spiritual path are the Buddha, the Buddha’s true teaching Dharma, and the community of spiritual practitioners (Sangha). Among the Three Jewels, the Buddha or true teacher is of paramount importance, since without him none can incorporate Dharma into one’s life or form a community of spiritual practitioners.
Of course Dharma and Sangha are vital as well, because when a Buddha imparts his teachings, seekers must then apply themselves to the practice of Dharma and the company of other spiritual practitioners is greatly conducive to this practice.
It might be helpful here to review briefly the Buddhist perspective on the importance of the true and living teacher. Patrul Rinpoche Says:
The teaching is the main refugee, recognize him, therefore, as the quintessential union of the Three Jewels, following him with absolute trust and try to pray to him all the time. Remember that to displease him with anything you do. Say or think is to renounce the entire refugee, so make every effort to please him all the time.
No matter what happens to you, be it pleasant or unpleasant, good or bad, sickness or suffering, entrust yourself entirely to the jewel of the teachers.
