'Depth calleth unto depth...' ~Psalm 42
Relationship with the Guru is relationship with the silence inside you, the boundless depth surrounding the tiny thought of 'I.'
This is why, when you are in the presence of a true Master, no question arises, no mind, only stillness. The 'I'-thought, 'ahamkara,' disappears. You dissolve.
The role of the Master is simply to remind you of who you really are. The Guru's depth awakens the depth in you. You are not this little bundle of worries and regrets. You are peace. You are vast clarity, like the sky. You are a priceless sparkling diamond of pure compassion.
Jai Guru Dev.
