Oh mind, meditate on the form of Guruguha, and cast off the sorrows created by delusion.
Having achieved human birth, seek to obtain eternal bliss in Paramatma and avoid the mundane pleasures.
He is Sadashiva, full of Satvaguna. All living things are born out of Him, as the result of the impact of Avidya. The universe with its Tamasic qualities is again a manifestation of His greatness. He is Tarakeshvara and Ananda Bhairava. Prostrate at His feet, meditate on His name, conquer the veil of illusion and think of Him as your sole refuge.
