“Gurur-Brahma Gurur-Vishnu Gurur-Devo Maheshwarah.
Guru-sakshat Para-Brahma tasmai Shri Gurave Namah.”
Guru himself is the Creator (Brahma), Sustainer (Vishnu) and the Destroyer (Maheswara or Siva). He is verily the very transcendental divinity, the timeless and limitless life-principle, which is the very essence of the creation. Guru is both the manifest Reality and the Supreme Absolute Reality. My reverential salutations to that glorious Guru.
