Surrender your intellect and follow his instructions implicitly. You should feel elated on each word and instruction of your guru and realise his grace inwardly at every moment. Until you firmly decide to remain elated and realise his grace, even while being reprimanded, you cannot say that you are 100 percent surrendered ...
Every living being in this world is in the pursuit of happiness. But even after relentless efforts over infinite births, true happiness - eternal, everlasting and divine - has never been attained. Quoting the sacred texts of Hinduism, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj proves that it is only by attaining God - the very ocean of divine love - that true happiness is attained. But to learn about spirituality, God, and the path of bhakti and meditation that culminates in His realisation, an aspirant must surrender to the teachings and guidance of a genuine spiritual teacher, a guru who has complete knowledge of all scriptures and practical experience of God. But, till date, our ego acts as our stumbling block. Guru Sharanagati concisely reveals what we must know, what we must have faith in, and what we must implement practically to surrender to a guru and realise the aim of our human life.
Kripalu Ji Maharaj delivered numerous discourses on this subject, treasures for any aspiring devotee. But for the time-poor people of today, finding out which lectures to listen to can be very daunting. Guru Sharanagati makes it so easy - a compilation of some of Kripaluji s most important excerpts relating to surrender to a guru. The true nature of surrender is discussed simply and lucidly. Important related topics are also discussed, including the nature of a guru's grace, the message of the Gita, the importance of avoiding adverse thinking, having the association of a genuine guru, and abandoning all other supports, and so on.
