The path to Enlightenment is a very difficult road indeed. It is long, arduous, dangerous, difficult. Tradition has it that only devotion to the Guru, who is the direct representative of the Godhead, can pave the way for Self- Actualisation !

It is said that Guruís Grace conferreth

Enlightenment, Wealth, Agri prosperity,
Wisdom, children and enjoyments
What is not possible eternally
With the Grace of the Guru ?

It is My Master who inspires me, who maketh me write this, who is guiding everything from within and am I not indebted to him ?

There are some critics who criticise Moksha or Self Realisation as a selfish desire. One worldly man tells a Yogi thus

You are talking about the Mount
When people are living in the valleys !
You thirst for the Divine Crown
You alone want the Divine Bliss
When others are sunk in Sorrow Existential
Isnt your effort and aim selfish?

Maybe Enlightenment is a selfish desire, but then it is the summum bonum of Life and the Goal of Evolution !

This is an octet consecrated to the Master Divine. May you be blessed by Enlightenment !
