Guru Krpáhi Kevalam
(Guru’s Grace is Everything)

The victory of humanity is proclaimed through the intense sádhaná of spiritual aspirants. This Supreme Truth applies equally to individuals as well as to the entire universe. When a person attains an exalted state of spirituality, he or she can bring welfare to millions of people, and they can do so due to the grace of Parama Puruśa. So the final word is “Brahma Krpá Hi Kevalam: Gurukrpá Hi Kevalam” – “The grace of Brahma is everything, the grace of Guru and Brahma are one and the same.”

-Shrii Shrii Ánandamurtijii
