“Guru Means Gravity.”


The guru has to be like a full moon: means completely grown, completely matured.
There are sixteen kalas, or the phases, of the moon, and when the complete purnima comes in, the full moon day, all the sixteen kalas are completed. You also know that in the Vishuddhi chakra there are sixteen sub plexuses. When Krishna is described as Viraata, He’s called as the Sampoorna: the complete incarnation of Vishnu’s aspect. Because He’s got the sixteen phases completely done….

‘Guru’ means the weight, the weight. We get our weight from the magnetic forces of the gravity of the Mother Earth. So guru means gravity, the gravity in a person…. Now as I have told you, that guru means gravity. You cannot say where is the axis of Mother Earth is? You cannot see it. I mean you cannot see it, you cannot feel it. But they say there is an axis on which the Mother Earth rotates. So it’s an energy, an energy on which this Mother Earth rotates. In the same way you have an axis, which is your Sushumna, which gives you the gravity.

The first important thing for a guru is that your gravity point is one. Everything centres on gravity. Unless and until your attention is completely fixed on to that gravity point within you — which is called as dhruva, is a fixed point — you cannot become a guru. So the gravity in you comes to you by clearing your attention, by looking at your attention where does it go? How do you reach your gravity point or anything that has a gravity point? How do we discover it? We go on balancing it, and when the balance is complete, that time we say this is the gravity point. In the same way your attention should hold your gravity point in complete balance.

So the first thing is that you should be a balanced person. But a balanced person is not a fixed person, he is not rigid. But an imbalanced person is a person who runs here, there, there, even after coming to Sahaja Yoga: running after this, running after that, running after that. Such a person cannot achieve much. Fix your gravity points, the balancing point, with Sahaja Yoga…

Anything else can attract you, you can slip down from Truth. So that point has to be fixed first of all within yourselves: dhruvapada as they call it; the position of the fixed point from which we understand that everything radiates from it, everything is controlled from here. The light within us by which we see what is darkness and what is reality. But do all this, even if you glorify and say all the names and chant everything, it has no meaning unless and until you develop discipline about it. Discipline is the sthai bhav or you can say the emotion of permanence for a guru state, guru seva, or for becoming a guru.

You must discipline your body, discipline your mind, discipline yourself. Sahaja Yoga is such a simple thing to have: I mean you are just connected with me. But you are not a guru. So how do you discipline yourself? Some people have awkward way in their bodies, then they should get to it, that they have a proper way in their body. Mould your body. It is not to torture your body but to master your body….

The gravity comes to you in your body this way: that you start generating your power or your principle of gurutva, principle of your mastery, through this point of your gravity.

The second point is your attention should have that gravity. Your attention is very important. A person who is easily disturbed is not a deep person. Or easily taken to something, like say emotions. Or easily to some other, say, intellectual pursuit.

As gurus there will be temptations for you. People will be challenging your state. A person comes out with a very big intellectual ‘truth’ or something, then immediately you feel challenged about it and you will say, “All right let me handle the situation.” Handle it at the Sahaja Yoga point, on your gravity. Just sit down on your gravity and see for yourself. Immediately you will know how to handle the situation. You need not talk to that person, you’ll handle the situation all right: not on [the] intellectual level but on your gravity.

If the attention has the gravity, it pulls down the ego and the superego of other people.
Then you will not be frustrated or frantic. Also if you can start from the outside it may work out with human beings; it works out like that…

study your attention how it behaves towards outside: what attracts your attention, what attracts your attention. Study your attention. By that study you will be able to fix your attention in its maryada, in its boundaries.

Once you put the boundaries to the attention then the depth starts developing. The person who has no boundaries can never have depth, he will be spreading just like that, always; no depth at all. So you have to put boundaries by understanding your attention,…
