What is the significance of Guru Poornima? Guru is one who illumines the path to divinity. Poornima stands for the cool full moonlight. Full moon stands for a mind with total illumination and purity. Even if there is a trace of blemish in the mind, it will lead to darkness. It cannot give you total bliss.

Don’t be idle and refuse to exert. If gross intellect cannot grasp the deep significance of Vedanta, don’t reject the great religion of Truth and cry that there is nothing in it.

he nature of bondage is merely the rising, ruinous thought `I am different from the reality'. Since one surely cannot remain separate from the reality, reject that thought whenever it rises.

109. Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa

Image
Discrimination between the Real and the unreal. One should always discriminate to the effect that God alone is real and the world unreal. And one should pray with sincere longing.
