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.
