The Guru Paduka Stotram is a very well known hymn – where the glory of the Guru’s Padukas or Sandals are expounded.
The Sandals represent the Truth that the Guru stands firmly on.
The glory of the Guru can never be described in depth. Sometimes it is easier to describe the Reality or Truth itself than to attempt to describe the Guru. As said in the Svetashvatara Upanishad, the meanings of the Upanishads are revealed to that person or student who has supreme devotion for the Lord and the same devotion for the Guru.
Swami Swaroopananda, in these talks, gently unfolds the timeless wisdom embedded in the Guru Paduka Stotram, so we may gain a firm understanding of the need, essence and Glory of the Guru.
