Surrender to the Guru



In surrendering to the Guru, it is to the Divine in him that one surrenders – if it were only to the human entity it would be ineffective. But it is the consciousness of the Divine Presence that makes the Guru a real Guru, so that even if the disciple surrenders to him thinking of the human being to whom he surrenders, that Presence will still  make it effective.

To surrender to the Divine requires a great faith in the divine, the psyche must be open to it.
