all pervasive guru

all pervasive guru

Right now, our guru is not all pervasive. Right now, because of deluded mind, our guru is narrowed down to a physical guru, bound by time and space, bound by gender, bound by citizenship, bound by a physical human being. So because we are not skilled enough, every experience, everything that happens in our life, we just don’t know how to take them as the guru’s manifestation. So now this is a prayer, may I, by the power of all the merits I have created in the past, and also just before this aspiration, the seven limbs prayers, by this power, may the guru, may the splendor of the teaching, the guru, may it be everywhere like a space. Wherever we go we have to, we end up meeting a space, a sky. We cannot escape from the space, we cannot. Likewise, may I reach to a stage were everything become a guru. Also we can put poetic, like may everything, we can say – sometimes these poetic words could be quite deceiving such as we say, may the manifestation of the guru you know manifest at all time. These are meaning same but this is much more to the point, may the guru be everywhere. So basically from every different experience you can take abhisheka. The purpose of having a guru is to receive the abhisheka, wang. From the guru you take the abhisheka isn’t it. Or at the least from the guru, the usage of the guru is trying to unite one’s body, speech and mind with the guru’s body, speech and mind. That is the purpose. To be able to use the, to be able to unite. So when you reach, when you manage to see – when the guru, maybe I should put it this way, when the guru is everywhere, then everywhere you go, every experience that you encounter, every condition that you face with, you can take abhisheka from that. Or you can unite that situation and yourself. So basically everything, basically everything, there is nothing that not trigger a bliss in you. So that’s, that is basically what it is. Guru.
