Is the 'GURUU TATTVA' and the 'GODDESS/GOD' the SAME?

Most of the spiritual-seekers, especially in India are wittingly or unwittingly misled as shown in the following discussion, into the trap of worshipping a human being only as the GOD or the Supreme-Consciousness by misinterpreting the word ‘GURUU' to mean the human-teacher in the following famous verse in the Hindi language by Kabeera.........


[A].THE INTRODUCTION:


Is the GURUU TATTVA [The ABSOLUTE] and the GODDESS/GODS one and the same?

Should we humans accord the primacy to a fellow human being over the Almighty/Lord/Super-Consciousness/Absolute?

Most of the spiritual-seekers, especially in India are wittingly or unwittingly misled as shown in the following discussion, into the trap of worshipping a human being only as the GOD or the Supreme-Consciousness by misinterpreting the word ‘GURUU' to mean the human-teacher in the following famous verse in the Hindi language by Kabeera:


"Guruu Govenda Douu khadae kaakae laagae paaon,
Guruu balehaaree aapnae deyo Gobvenda bataaya"


[B].THE DISCUSSION:


1. The GURUU TATTVA [The ABSOLUTE] is the all pervading AATMA in the entire creation. It is inside every being or the entity. It is FORMLESS in its final-stage.


2. The GURUU TATTVA is the only element that manifests itself in the form of Brhmaa, Veshnnu and Mahaesha. It can and does acquire different forms including the human-form.


3. The formless GURUU TATTVA out of mercy and compassion for us becomes/acquires the form of GOVENDA [guide] to help us humans reach and merge into it [The GURUU TATTVA] to liberate ourselves from the vicious cycle of birth and death. Thus, the GURUU TATTVA [The ABSOLUTE/ PARAMA TATTVA/PARAMAA TATTVA] and GOVENDA [guide] are one and the same in broader spiritual energy terms and perspective.


4. This GOVENDA [guide] can be in terms of some GODDESS, GOD, a line from a book, some experience, some human-Sadguruu or some other thing which helps the spiritual seeker reach and merge into the GURUU TATTVA. Thus, it is not a necessary condition to have only some human as a guide on the spiritual path.


5. Therefore, if I found the GURUU TATTVA [The ABSOLUTE] and GOVENDA [guide] standing in front of me, I as a true spiritual seeker would bow before the GURUU TATTVA [The ABSOLUTE] because if the GURUU TATTVA [The ABSOLUTE] had not been kind to me in the first place itself, I would not have been graced with GOVENDA [guide] to guide me to reach and merge into the GURUU TATTVA [The ABSOLUTE]...! It is the GURUU TATTVA [The ABSOLUTE] which told/guided-about/got [deyo bataaya] me the GOVENDA [guide]!


6. It is absolutely wrong to say that the one can achieve a Brhma-darshan but cannot uphold it, so to sustain the same could be possible only after a certain stage once she/he has sought a so-called real Sadguru who can guide her/him to reach the further state and without the so-called human-Sadguruu, she/he cannot reach the further state. The truth is that continuous practice is a must to sustain this blissful state irrespective of whether achieved through grace of the PARAMAA/PARAMA TATTVA, self-efforts or a human-guruu. However, it is true for most of the spiritual-seekers that while self-practising, he/she may face a lot of difficulties and there are numerous chances to get diverted from the actual target where she/he will find herself/himself nowhere!


7. If some spiritual-seeker has willingly fallen into the trap of blind-following and has decided to be not ready to see the light of the reason, rationality and factual facts, well no one can help in this matter. So, let each one be to oneself. All spiritual seekers are correct from their own perspectives!


[C].The EXAMPLE:

Ramakrishna Paramhansa was once asked by his human-Guruu Totaapuri to go in for the NERAAKAARA SAADHANAA. Ramakrishna Paramhansa didn't believe in him blindly. He went to the DIVINE MOTHER and told her about it. Only after she gave her consent/go-ahead, did he go back to his human-Guruu Totaapuri and did the NERAAKAARA SAADHANAA. He clearly had more faith in the DIVINE MOTHER than any human-guruu like his human-Guruu Totapuri. Why? Because, like any sensible human being/spiritual-seeker, Ramakrishna Paramhansa probably understood well that the human-Guruu always might not be correct, but the DIVINE MOTHER could never be wrong...! This shows the primacy of the DIVINE MOTHER over human-Guruus!
