Light on the Guru and Disciple Relationship
The original book was printed way back in the year 1984.Yoga Publications Trust have reprinted this valuable book in the year 2006. Many people have argued that a guru is not necessary because the real guru is already within us.This is true but how many of us can claim to hear,understand or follow his instructions?In fact many of us even tend to doubt his existence.How many of us can discriminate between the real inner guru and the monkey mind,acting out the dictates of the ego?
This book is an inspiring and practical book in two parts.The first section,written by Swami Satyasangananda,who accompanied her guru,Swami Satyananda Saraswati,on his tours as he enlightened his followers on the science of Yoga,contains chapters on how to recognise a guru,types of gurus,types of disciples,negativity towards the guru,initiationand many more.The second edition contains a selection of satsangs and talks by Swami Satyananda Saraswati on many aspects of the guru-disciple relationshi,including the role of the guru,linking with the guru’s spirit,surrendering the ego,transmission and devotion.
