WHAT IS AATHMAALAYAM?

A Guru is God in all the senses. We believe that God comes in human form as guru to give salvation to his disciples.

Guru will show us the path by which we attain our Godhood. According to Hinduism, every soul is God and by removing the outer layers of ignorance Guru reveals to us our true form.

Most of all you will find that those who are true Gurus avoid mentioning this whereas those who are ordinary beings call themselves as Gurus. It is very difficult to explain about what happens after you meet a guru. The changes will tell you that something totally different is happening to you. You will then understand the glory of Gurus.

This website is created to reveal the life history and preaching of those eternal Gurus.

Means:

Guru is the creator Brahma, Guru is the preserver Vishnu, and Guru is the destroyer Siva. Guru is directly the supreme spirit — I offer my salutations to this Guru.

Importance of Finding a Guru:
It’s very important to find a guru who can impart transcendental knowledge (vidyā) is emphasised in Hinduism.
One of the main Hindu texts, the
Bhagavad Gita, is a dialogue between God in the form of Krishna and his friend Arjuna, a Kshatriya prince who accepts Krishna as his guru on the battlefield, prior to a large battle. Not only does this dialogue outline many of the ideals of Hinduism, but their relationship is considered an ideal one of Guru-Shishya. In the Gita, Krishna speaks to Arjuna of the importance of finding a guru:

Acquire the transcendental knowledge from a Self-realized master by humble reverence, by sincere inquiry, and by service. The wise ones who have realized the Truth will impart the Knowledge to you.


In the sentence mentioned above, guru is used more or less interchangeably with satguru (literally: true teacher) and satpurusha. Compare also Swami. The disciple of a guru is called a śiṣya or chela. Often a guru lives in an ashram or in a gurukula (the guru's household), together with his disciples. The lineage of a guru, spread by disciples who carry on the guru's message, is known as the guru parampara, or disciplic succession.
