Gurur Brahma, Gurur Vishnu, Gurur Devo Maheshvara
Guru Sakshat Parabrahma Tasmai Shree Guruvey Namaha
This chant is often used as an opening in Indian culture, to show devotion to one’s Guru and assert that the Guru is God, a manifestation of the supreme. The Guru is external, one’s spiritual teacher, and the Guru is a universal principle in one’s own heart.
In the spirit of this prayer, I ask that the grace of the supreme guru flows through this work to all beings. May this work be surrendered to the divine will, and free of any personal interest and attachment. I surrender my life at the feet of the supreme guru.
