The root of worship is the guru's feet

"He must increase : I must decrease."  John 3:30

One beautiful summer afternoon a long time ago now Swamiji, chauffeured by Jaya, drove up to where I was standing alone in a field, opened up the car door, stuck his feet out the side of the car, and said "Take off my sandals." I did, without saying a word. He drove off, without saying a word.


The root of meditation is the guru's form

The root of worship is the guru's feet

The root of mantra is the guru's word

The root of liberation is the guru's grace

                                    — Guru Gita 76

Dhyana mulam guror murtih

Puja mulam guroh padam

Mantra mulam guror vakyam

Moksha mulam guroh krpa
