I bow to the dust which rests upon the feet of my Guru. This dust is unconditional love itself, it is the source of true spiritual realisation. It has the great power of giving freedom to living beings from the bondage of material existence. How lucky are the people who know this dust! Adorning the most fortunate of souls, similar to the white ash worn by the devotees of Lord Shiva.  This sacred dust can polish the mirror of our hearts and purify our souls.  The nails on the lotus feet of the Guru are to me like precious jewels whose splendour invoke vision of the divine reality. Fortunate is the one who has had this vision, for every other worldly desire simply falls away. Through the power of the grace of this sacred dust which rests on the Guru’s feet, the minds eyes are opened and all of life’s suffering simply falls away. The darkness and suffering of the material world is no more, for the precious jewels in form of Rama’s stories provide enough light for the universe to be lit up forever.
After honouring the Gods, the second prayer of the Ramayana of devotion is dedicated to the Guru. The word Guru means the remover of darkness. The world is like salt water and it is through the grace of a pure guru that it becomes drinkable. For me, It is only by Maharaji’s grace that I am writing this book at all. It is only because of him that I know that such a deep state of love even exists. I never had the fortune of meeting him in the body as I was born many years after he passed on, but every day I feel as if I adorn my mind with the dust from his feet. If there is any trace of spiritual love in this work, it is all due to Maharaji.
