Hola !

This morning I was listening to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's talk on the Guru Shishya Sambandh. The mentions - "love your Guru as you would love yourself."

While one would have veneration and revenerence that goes beyond oneself, I think Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's explanation is a pithy and useful expression - puts a lot of actions (or the lack of them) into perspective.

Wonder what you think of this ? :)

Love and light,

I like it. I was thinking to love the Guru even more than yourself. I kind of thought, I love the Guru more than myself, cause I don't think I'm all that great, but I realized that if i really did love him more than myself, I would do everything he says no matter what kind of opposition my habits and desires put up. I would do everything he says, no matter whether I felt like it or not. This is not the case.

I guess there are a lot of different ways to look at it, but maybe if you love the Guru as much as yourself, then you will give up some of your headstrongness to follow his wishes at least half of the time.
