One is truly blessed with the grace of God if in any life, at any time, he meets a guru who is shrotriya and brahmanishtha. Such a guru will not make any disciple, but the disciple has to accept him as a guru from the core of his heart. No genuine guru will initiate anyone as his disciple until his heart is completely purified ...
The mushrooming growth of self-proclaimed spiritual teachers and the commercialism of spirituality has resulted in an endless number of spiritual paths and disciplines. Confusion over the intention of spiritual principles and practices continues to rise. A glaring example is a practice called diksha, initiation. This ancient tradition is a subject of debate and scepticism, and sadly, malpractice.
Comprising excerpts from three discourses by Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj, this concise publication sets the record straight. Anyone embarking on the path of bhakti, or any other spiritual path, should have a basic understanding of the intended meaning of spirituality. Who can be accepted as a spiritual leader and what does the word initiation imply?
The book concludes with an informative chapter on Kripalu Ji himself, discussing his unique place in India's Jagadguru tradition, and how he came to be bestowed with the title of Jagadguruttam, the supreme among all Jagadgurus.
