Mata Amritanandamayi Devi: Until the inner Guru awakens, one needs an external Guru

The term “Guru Purnima” compares the guru to the full moon. The light of the full moon benefits those who are awake at night. When we even hear the phrase “full moon,” a joy inadvertently fills our heart. Without even thinking why we feel the pull to look at it and enjoy its splendour. We may even forget everything and dance. To see light in the middle of a dark night, one experiences the same relief a thirsty person feels when he drinks water. During the full moon, the tide rises to its highest point. The full moon has an attraction and magnetism that uplifts our mind. Logically or scientifically speaking, there may be other explanations, but whatever be the reason, the silvery moonlight gives joy to everyone. A guru is also like that. A realised master blesses the entire world with auspiciousness. Any association with the guru can only bring goodness and glory.
