Devotional Songs - Pad Kirtan
on Sadguru Madhuri

guru-disciple This comes as the first topic because all devotional understanding and feelings are received after first receiving the Guru's grace.

In a disciple's life, the Guru plays the role of spiritual guide to the Divine goal. If he is a true Saint, he is a bridge between the world and God.

The Divine and invaluable qualities of the Guru are cherished deeply by a true disciple.

In such compositions, the Saint may play the role of both master and disciple, evoking humility, confusion, curiosity or any other human condition and then resolving, answering or giving insight into this situation. These are glimpses into the true nature of the Guru-disciple relationship, the world, God's personality, the Divine world and the devotional path. Click here for Hindi.
