22 On the Primacy of the Guru


The importance of the Guru is absolute.
It is his being that permits transformation.
His teaching is really only just a catalyst by which to reach him.
One can fail at all the work, but if one has genuine devotion to the guru, it will transform you.

Being with the guru, meditating on his image, his name, or his energy will serve to transform you.
It is the act of Satsang, of being with him, that is more important then trying to analyze his teachings.

The guru is a vast openness, inviting you to open as well.
