O my Sadguru---I rely on your compassion and grace in each and every moment of my life. You are the radiance of the Sun; enlightening me during my hours of ignorance.You are OM and you are Shri/the auspiciousness.You are the True guru/preceptor.
Tsuyi Chhuk Brahma Chuyi vishnu Maheshwarai
You are Brahma--the creator,Vishnu--the sustainer and Maheshwara--the great force of dissolution,or merger. You are Ajara/changeless,Absolute; immortal, infinite and immutable. I offer my laudations to you--as you are existing in the three worlds of "Bhu Bhuvah and Swah".
Any one can realize the supreme truth and attain the Divine vision,if there is complete surrender at your feet,by annointing his/her eyes with the dust of your lotus feet.That truth---higher realization not seen by others is always viewed by you.O my Sadguru---I rely on you in each and every moment of my life.---2
Being a compassionate One,please grace me with the Siddhi/perfection.I am proud with ignorance about Truth . I am unaware of my intelligencewithout any intelligence, thus you can take the pride away from my being.I can not share my sadness with any one,except your noble self. Because you listen to my inner psyche.
I have come and prostrate before you. Bless me with your grace,listen to my wooing sounds.They will attain liberation,who understand your spiritualaura filled with inner strength of Atman.
Beyond doubt,you are an embodiment of Sidha Yogi--a perfect Yogi--,but I am an ailing person,and need the spiritual help to get evolved,which would raise my spiritual bent of mind for higher understanding of the truth.
You are the source of light in the spell of darkness. I am sure you will relieve me of the ailments caused by my ignorance.I am dependent on your grace for transcending myself from the ocean of Samsara,within a time span of single jump taking. Please be gracious enough to show the beautiful face, radiant with spirituality.
I have become agitated with the sins associated with the wrong doings. Please place your cool palm on my head,so that the wrath of 'Tamas'--inertia will be transformed,for higher spiritual values.
The Sitar of my mind is vibrating ,when I tightened the cords.Now I sing the songs dedicated to your spiritual self.The
Take mercy on me.Grant me refuge to have presence near your lotus feet.
You are Chintamani--a touch stone to convert copper into gold.It is because of meditation that true Advaita/ non-dualism takes place between a disiple and a preceptor. The humility and humbleness in a Shishya makeshim/herb to ascend to the spiritual heights.
I was of the notion that I am only flesh and bone, the material self but was not aware of the true self--which is pure Atman abiding in my being. It is because of your grace that I could realize that I am pure Atman--Self.I got this identity,now I should preserve it to the best of my spiritual efforts and understanding.O my Sadguru---I rely on you in each and every moment of my life. 11
Those who got merged in your spiritual self ,and became one with Atman..., they got absorbed in the spiritual realm of Divinity.The fear of being in this Samsara got vanished and they achieved their true self of beingpure Atman. O my Sadguru---I rely on you in each and every moment of my life. 12
Neel Kanth makes a humble submission to receive the blessings in the spiritual manner as how could he cross the oceanic world of transmigration of soul. May Swami Nand Lal Ji and his Guru Swami Lal Ji be always graceful to him!
