Significance of Guru Pooja

 


Guru or the Master is the One who dispels the darkness of ignorance and illuminates our lives with pure knowledge. Guru Pooja is worship of
the Guru and offering of obeisance at His feet. By offering obeisance and gratitude to the Guru, we repose our faith in Him, whose feet are
roots of worship and the root of liberation. Guru Pooja, when done with profound sincerity can cause one to live a life of overwhelming
gratitude not just towards the Master but towards Existence as a whole.

Materials needed for Pooja:

 


 Guru Pāduka (Feet symbolizing the feet of the Guru) on a plate
 Flowers (a handful) on a plate
 A bilva leaf (You could offer water instead, if bilva leaf is unavailable)
 Udrani - small water cup with a spoon
 C onch
 Kamandalu (small holy water jug)
 Camphor
 Sandal Paste
 Kumkum (Vermillion) powder
 Two incense sticks
 Oil lamp and match box
 Small piece of saffron cloth
 Food for offering (any fresh/dry fruits, nuts, fresh cooked food, etc)

 

 

Take a flower in your hands, remember the Master's form and chant the following. The following two verses offer humble obeisance to the Master and the lineage of Masters who have time and again appeared to steer man towards realizing the Self.


Guru Dhyān


nityānandam parama sukhadam - kevalam gnānamoortim
dvandvāteetam gagana sadrusham - tatvamasyādi laksham

effect on the deity to which it is offered. It's three leaves stand for creation, sustenance and destruction. It also symbolizes

Ring the bell with your left hand, take the lit incense sticks in your right hand and move it in a circle near the Master's feet.
(In the incense, we see the potential that is in ourselves, just as the incense itself is worthless until it is put to the flame. We
know that our lives are useless too, unless our potentials are fulfilled. In the incense we also recognize that our lives are just
as fleeting as its sweet smoke.)

Lit camphor


Offer Ārati (lit camphor) to the Master while chanting the following mantra. Ring the bell with the left hand while moving the
lit camphor in a circle with right hand. (Camphor burns itself out completely without leaving a trace. It represents our
unmanifested desires. So also if we were to take refuge in the Master's feet to obtain knowledge, these desires will get burnt
out. Although the camphor burns itself out, it emits a nice perfume. On a human plane it means that we should sacrifice
ourselves to serve society, in the process spread the perfume of love and happiness to all.
