Guru Mantra (Buddha Bar version)

I have no formal Guru in my life, but have learned from many. Today is a day of thanksgiving and gratitude to God and each one of them. I feel I am blessed; I truly appreciate all that I have got, from my heart. Thank you!

Gurur Brahmaa, Gurur Vishnu

Guru Sakshat Param Brahma
Tasmai Shrii Gurave Namah

Guru is verily the representative of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
He creates, sustains knowledge and destroys the weeds of 
ignorance.
I salute such a Guru.
Guru can guide us to the supreme knowledge of that which pervades all the living and non-living beings in the entire Universe
(namely
Brahman). I salute such a Guru.

A Guru can save us from the pangs of ignorance
(darkness)
by applying to us the balm of knowledge or awareness of the supreme.
I salute such a Guru.
