The Song of the Guru
verses from Skanda Purana
“Contemplating one’s Guru is like contemplating one’s own body.
Contemplating the infinity of existence is like contemplating Shiva.
The image of the Guru is the root of meditation.
The feet of the Guru are the root of worship.
The words of the Guru are the root of mantras.
The compassion of the Guru is the root of liberation.
By reciting the Guru Gita one attains infinite fruits.
All sins are nullified and all afflictions are destroyed.
It takes away the fear of time and death and destroys all adversity.”
