Who is greater? God or Guru?
Atheists would say it doesn’t matter.
Consultants would say it depends.
Theists would say God.
A loving disciple would say Guru.
A realized soul would say they are no different.
Which is correct?
Here is what Sant Kabir had to say in my favourite doha (couplets).
Guru Govind dou khade, kake lagoon paay?
Balihari Guru aapne, Govind diyo batay.
If the Guru and God are both standing here, who’s feet should I fall at?
Choose the Guru, because he only imparted the knowledge to even recognize God.
Such a profound couplet!
