A must read book for anyone who is even a little serious about their spiritual life. Herein Srila Sridhar Maharaj explains the indispensable necessity of Guru for a spiritual seeker. the qualifications of a guru and different types of gurus. the qualifications of a disciple and how a disciple should view Guru. the nature of truth, faith, and progress. absolute and relative considerations. the difference between the gayatri mantra and mahamantra. the real meaning of diksha, shiksha, and parampara. and stages of spiritual development. Throughout Srila Sridhar Maharaj gives much emphasis to introspection and self-analysis, and the need to constantly follow “the pure current of truth”, howsoever it may appear: “We are worshipers not of form, but of substance.” Included is a chapter on Lord Nityananda, ‘The Original Guru’, as well as a discussion of the highest ideal of our line, Sri Radha Dasyam.
