Guru Dakshina

In Indian religious scriptures, glories of Guru have been sung immensely. Under Indian Vedic traditions, huge importance has been given to Guru-Disciple relationship. One gets a true spiritual master by good fortune and human effort doesn’t play much role in this.

An enlightened Spiritual Master forever looks after the welfare of the disciple in the physical world as well as acts as a bridge on the spiritual path to unite the disciple with the Supreme Power. Guru's altruistic love and infinite grace is incomparable and unconditional. This way a disciple is forever indebted to his Spiritual Master and can only express his gratitude for this good fortune by offering a Dakshina.
  • Dakshina could be in the form of money, physical work or service by way of spreading Guru's message to others interested in Self Realization. This offering should be voluntary as a Guru doesn't ask for it. It is a Yogic belief that a Guru-Disciple relationship matures fully when the disciple offers Dakshina to Guru on making progress on the path of Yoga.

  • There is no standard way in which a disciple should offer Dakshina. This depends largely on the disciple's gratitude and respect for the Guru, besides his monetary or material position.

  • An enlightened and empowered Spiritual Master like Gurudev Siyag happily accepts a flower, fruit, leaf or even water offered with pure love and gratitude. A disciple's spiritual worth is not decided by how much and what he offers to his Guru, but how deeply he feels grateful for the Guru's grace in his spiritual journey.

  • The offering could be a rupee, a penny or even a flower. But this gift has to be given wholeheartedly, only then does the Guru accept it.

  • People think they are giving Guru Siyag to the Guru. But the truth is that the Guru is never in any need of Guru Siyag nor can Guru Siyag be given to the Guru.
