BIG MIND

 You know there is a Big Mind and a small mind. Sometimes the Big Mind wins over the small mind and sometimes it is the other way around.

 When the small mind wins over, it is misery and when the Big Mind wins, it is joy.

 Small mind promises joy and leaves your hand empty. Big Mind may bring resistance in the beginning but fills you with joy.

 The word Guru means great. Jaya means victory. Deva means one who is fun-loving, playful, light. One who is playful is often not dignified and when one is dignified, he is often not playful.

Jai Guru Dev is victory to the Big Mind in you that is both dignified and playful. That is what Jai Guru Dev means: “Victory to the Greatness in you.”

You do not say victory or hail to the Master as he has won over already. You say victory to your own Self, your own Mind, which is being veiled by the small mind.

 Jai Guru Dev

    I just love uttering Jai Gurudev, it gives me confidence, brings me luck, brings me success, happiness, above all gives me a sense of non doing which reduces ego. I also do it as an exercise to remmeber the Almighty The Guru of Gurus, to remind myself of The Devine Ultimate Being who/which does everything through us.
    Jai Gurudev.

    Hi all, The true meaning of Guru is “one who dispels darkness of ignorance”. “Gu” means “darkness of ignorance” and “Ru” means “one who removes”. Guru is a position higher than dev. devans comes in a lower stand that the guru. so I can we join the word guru and dev? No one person can be the boss and employee,
