It was in the year 1987 that His Holiness Sri Ganapathi sachchidananda swamiji delivered a series of lectures on Guru Gita in vijayawada to enable the devotees to understand the true meaning and importance of Guru.
Guru Gita has a prominent place in the hearts of spritual seekers. There are many devotees both in india and abroad, who chant Guru Gita on a daily basis. if you ask them why they consider Guru Gita as so important, they say - "However far away our Guru might be, 'Guru Gita' brings Him closer to our hearts, it enables us to communicate with Him".
Speaking about the greatness of Guru Gita, sri swamiji once said, "Guru gita does not discriminate on the basis of caste, creed, race, country or sex. it belongs to everybody. Sadguru's grace is necessary to achieve spiritual upliftment. in order to obtain Guru's grrace, it is imperative for one to understand the principie of Guru. There is no treatise more useful to achieve this than the Guru Gita".
There are several Gitas-Bhagavad Gita, Avadhoota Gita, Ashtavakra Gita, Shruti Gita, Vasishtha Gita - and so on. All these elaborate on Atma Thatva (knowledge of self).All sacred scriptures have stressed the importance of a Guru for seekar who wants to know about Atma Thatva It is only Guru Gita that explains the concept of Guru, who is verily the most important link between the seeker and the sought.
Sri Swamiji, the embodiment of compassion has Himself chanted the sacred verses of Guru Gita in this album it comes as a panacea at a time when the world is passing through very difficult times. it brings you nearer to your Guru. We urge everyone- especially today's youth- to listen to and chant these sacred verses eveyday.may the grace of sadguru help create a healthy society.
