Today, November 13, 2002 is the 6 year anniversary of Swami Rama's
Mahasamadhi, his day of leaving the body. While remembering the highs
and lows, the kicks and blows, this is a day in which I especially
recall, with a tear in the eye and warmth in the heart, the moment in
which this most masterful face of the Himalayan sages said to
me, "You are on the path--I will lead you."
It is a good day to remember that Gu means darkness, and Ru means
light, and that Guru is not any person, but is the force field driven
by grace that removes the darkness of ignorance.
May the grace of Guru guide you to your eternal Self. May all of
humanity be bathed in the light of Guru.
In loving gratitude and service,
