About the Book
For all those who are caught in the endless ocean of Saṃsāra, who are veiled by their own ignorance that prevents them from realizing the Supreme and who are struggling to find peace within, the Guru is their guiding light, who shows them the right path towards Self-realization. This book, the Gurugītā, hence expounds the greatness of such a Guru who bestows ultimate bliss upon the beings and helps them to cross the ocean of Saṃsāra. Revealed by the great sage Veda-vyāsā, it is scribed in the Skanda-purāṇa as a conversation between Lord Śiva and Goddess Pārvatī, and it elaborates on the importance of a Guru in one’s life, the various methods one should devoutly follow to serve him, the characteristics of a real Guru and the innumerable benefits one attains by chanting the verses of this sacred text.
Our Editorial Philosophy
Vedic Cosmos has a panel of prominent Sanskrit scholars from different philosophical schools, such as Dvaita, Advaita and Viśiṣṭhadvaita, who are well versed in Sanskrit literature, Agamas, Dharma-śāstras, Purāṇas & Itihāsas, Nyāya, Vyākaraṇa, linguistics etc. We with our board of editors and researchers carry out an in-depth analytical and editorial research for all the editions that we publish. As such, we do not follow a particular school of thought or philosophy. We rather take into account various commentaries belonging to the different schools of thought and present the content in our books from an authentic, non-sectarian standpoint.
Our ancient seers and sages have preserved the treasure of transcendental knowledge of sacred scriptures for generations, which are available to us even today. Our mission is to provide the future generation with the authentic interpretation of these scriptures without losing their true essence. We therefore give the credit of authorship to the original revealers of these sacred texts such as Maharṣi Vyāsa/Maharṣi Vālmīki and not to any individual or translators.
