    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

In this track, Swamiji emphasizes that spiritual seekers require love, devotion, and association to a living guru to progress in their spiritual practice. The initiation and blessings from a guru holds great importance, as sādhana revolves around the guru’s guidance.

Scriptures, such as the Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita, serve as guides to realizing the truth. However, mere reading of scriptures without realizing the truth is futile. Swamiji highlights on focus on sādhana rather than extensive reading. Overall, love, devotion, association with a guru, and realization through sādhana are deemed crucial in the spiritual journey, alongside the role of scriptures.

Shlokas chanted in the Track:

अविज्ञाते परे तत्त्वे शास्त्राधीतिस्तु निष्फला ।
विज्ञातेऽपि परे तत्त्वे शास्त्राधीतिस्तु निष्फला ।।

Vivekachudamani 59

परीक्ष्य लोकान् कर्मचितान् ब्राह्मणो
निर्वेदमायान्नास्त्यकृतः कृतेन ।
तद्विज्ञानार्थं स गुरुमेवाभिगच्छेत्
समित्पाणिः श्रोत्रियं ब्रह्मनिष्ठम् ।।

Mundakopanishad-1.2.12
