Guru: Principle, Power, and Person
Swami Mahayogananda

In this talk delivered on November 4, 2012, Swami Mahayogananda discusses the idea of the Guru or spiritual teacher as a principle and a power, and as a person. He addresses dealing with grief when one’s human guru leaves the body, and includes some of his reminiscences of Swami Swahanandaji, who left his body on October 19, 2012.
