The Guru


The human teacher shows you how to read.
The teacher divine sleeplessly reads for you.
The one leads your mind to wisdom's portal,
The other opens your soul to the sky-vast blue.


The Guru is He who shows the Way;
His heart is Love, his mind is Light,
His body is Grace in the realm of night.
Silence and Power sustain his Play.
