"Guru Govind Dono Khare, Kaake Lago Paye? Balihari Guru Aapne Govind Diyo Dikhaye." - Kabir
English translation - I have Guru and God both in front of me. Who should I bow down to first? To me Guru comes first because without His grace, I would never be able to see God in the first place.
I am immensely thankful to my Enlightened Guru - Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam. He has literally brought back to life this ancient technique of Nirahara Samyama used by Indian sages and yogis thousands of years ago and now perfected by SwamiJi. It is a pure gift for modern humanity suffering with so many food related patterns that stop us from being enlightened.
I must also mention my Enlightened Guru - Avatar Meher Baba, whose spiritual teachings have formed the basis of my understanding about life.
Most important learning for me through the journey has been that there is no need to reinvent the wheel. The same problems we face today were faced by humanity millennia ago and enlightened beings of the the past also shared solutions. Modern masters out of their compassion put those teachings in the current context. All we have to do is trust, apply and see for ourselves.
