This is the final verse of a long devotional poem dedicated
to one's teacher or guru. It is an affirmation of one's gratitude
to that greatest and most sacred of all teachers—Truth—which
is accessable to everyone because it exists within each one
of us. In this verse, the many qualities of inner Truth are
listed and it is stated, “I bow and am devoted to, this
most important guru, Truth itself.”
The Inner Guru (teacher), Brahman (the one universal
consciousness), gives bliss and supreme happiness.
The Inner Guru is absolute unity and
is the very substance of all knowledge.
The Inner Guru, by existing beyond dualism,
is absolute truth, blue sky, heaven.
To see the Inner Guru's true nature is my first
and foremost objective, this is the primary aim of my life.
The Inner Guru is one—eternal, pure, immovable,
existing as the supreme witness of the mind of all beings.
Existing beyond and free from the three gunas, or states of
To that Essential Guru, Truth itself, I bow.
Om. Peace (in the physical world),
Peace (in the realm of thought),
Peace (in the realm of spirit).
