The path to Enlightenment is a very difficult road indeed. It is long, arduous, dangerous, difficult. Tradition has it that only devotion to the Guru, who is the direct representative of the Godhead, can pave the way for Self- Actualisation !
 
It is said that Guru’s Grace conferreth
  
Enlightenment, Wealth, Agri prosperity,
Wisdom, children and enjoyments
What is not possible
With the Grace of the Guru ?
  
It is My Master who inspires me, who maketh me write this, who is guiding everything from within and am I not indebted to him ?
 
This is an octet consecrated to the Master Divine. May you be blessed by Enlightenment !
