mantramūlaṃ gurorvākyaṃ mokṣamūlaṃ guroḥ kṛpā ॥

The focus for meditation is the Guru’s form; the focus of worship is the feet of the Guru; the real mantra is the instruction of the Guru and the cause of liberation is the Guru’s compassion.

द्वन्द्वातीतं गगनसदृशं तत्त्वमस्यादिलक्ष्यम् ॥

brahmānandaṃ paramasukhadaṃ kevalaṃ jñānamūrtim ।
dvandvātītaṃ gaganasadṛśaṃ tattvamasyādilakṣyam ॥

एकं नित्यं विमलमचलं सर्वधीसाक्षिभूतम् ।
भावातीतं त्रिगुणरहितं सद्‌गुरुं तं नमामि ॥

ekaṃ nityaṃ vimalamacalaṃ sarvadhīsākṣibhūtam ।
bhāvātītaṃ triguṇarahitaṃ sad‌guruṃ taṃ namāmi ॥

Salutations to the Sadguru, who is verily the bliss of Brahman and the bestower of supreme happiness; who is One and the personification of supreme Knowledge; who transcends the pairs of opposites, resembles the sky and is revealed by such Vedic aphorisms as Thou Art That; who is single, eternal, pure, immovable, and the witness of the intelligence of all; who is beyond all states and is devoid of the three guṇas.

नित्यं शुद्धं निराभासं निराकारं निरञ्जनम् ।
नित्यबोधं चिदानन्दं गुरुं ब्रह्म नमाम्यहम् ॥

nityaṃ śuddhaṃ nirābhāsaṃ nirākāraṃ nirañjanam ।
nityabodhaṃ cidānandaṃ guruṃ brahma namāmyaham ॥

I prostrate before the Guru who is everlasting, ever-pure, and is devoid of all illusory appearances; who is formless, blemishless, ever present awareness, and blissful consciousness.
