Guru Bandana

BhAvatitam trigunarahitam sadgurum tam namami.
He is the essence of eternal bliss, the deliverer of divine happiness, the embodiment of the highest knowledge. He is beyond earthly conflicts, all-pervading and quintessence of knowledge. He is the only eternal being, embodiment of sublime tranquility, beholder of eternal affairs. He is beyond earthly virtues yet embodiment of all virtues. He is SAT-GURU and I prostrate before His lotus-feet.
