गुरू ब्रह्मा गुरू विष्णु, गुरु देवो महेश्वरा गुरु साक्षात परब्रह्म, तस्मै श्री गुरुवे नमः
“Guru is Brahma, Guru is Vishnu, Guru is Shiva; Guru is the supreme Brahman. Salutations to that holy Guru!”
On Guru Purnima day today, wanted to share a name from Lalita Sahasranama – गुरु मंडल रूपिणी – Guru Mandala Rupini (mantra/name 713).
She embodies in Herself the lineage of Gurus. The line of Gurus starting with Paramasiva and ending with one’s own Guru is Gurumandala. Divine Mother is in the form of Guru maṇḍala and is the Guru, and Guru’s lineage. There is no difference between Guru and Lalitāmbikā, hence this nāma.
Not limited by time and space, she is omnipresent. Dwelling in the cave of the heart in a secret form that is free of all limitations.
The lineage of guru is stressed because rituals and certain procedures differ from maṇḍala to maṇḍala (maṇḍala here means group) and each maṇḍala follows different customs and practices.
The Swamiji is the Divine Mother, and the Divine mother is the Swamiji.
Happy Guru Purnima Day to All!
ॐ श्री गुरुभ्यो नम:
Om Sri Gurobhaya Namah
ॐ गुरु मंडल रूपिण्यै नमः
Om Guru mandala rupinyai namah
Salutations to Her who embodies in Herself the lineage of Gurus
