Jammu, July 5: The head of Sahib Bandagi sect Madhu Param Hans today delivered religious sermons on the occasion of Guru Poornima through online live Satsang. While throwing light on the significance of guru, in connection with the Guru Purnima, Param Hans said that there is a great difference between a guru and a Satguru. There has been no mention of the word Satguru before Sahib Kabir. Only the word guru was prevalent. So, should we take the use of this word satguru as an opposing one to that of the word guru. No, it is not like that. Earlier, the gurus talked about 3 lokas alone. Also, the word guru is to be found in the Sagun as well as the Nirgun forms of worship. It is only the saints who made use of the word Satguru. In the Sagun as well as the Nirgun, the guru holds a high status but he simply shows the path of meditation & salvation & doesn’t take the responsibility of taking the disciples across the worldly ocean. The disciples have to make their own earnings to do so. So to say, the guru simply acts as a guide. A satguru, on the other hand, doesn’t ask you to make any earnings.
