Guru Govind dovu khade kake lagu paay
Balihari guru aapne Govind diyo bataye.||

Such is the glory of a Guru as sung by Sant Tulsidasji.

Video Talk by Gurudev on Guru Purnima  A teacher gives sikhsha. A Guru gives Deeksha.

Sri Tulsi Ramayana –  Bala kanda Prarambha, Mangala Charan 
 
Bandhau gurupad padam paraga
suruchi subas saras anuraga
Ami amurimaya churan charu
saman sakal bhav ruj parivaru ||

Sukruti sambhu tana bimal bibhuti
manjul mangal mod prasuti
Jan-man munj mukur mal harani
kie tilak gun gan bas karani ||

I worship the impression of the lotus feet of the guru, which is very much like nectar of all precious, fragranceful, mind enlightening fruit, remover of entire world’s ill effects, provider of calmness and blissfulness to all.

The ashes covered on Shiva’s pure body are so beautiful, giver of liberation happiness ; like destroyer of clouds in the mind’s mirror ; controller of nature’s ill power ; combined effects (by placing on the forehead).
