“Swami Muktananda has described in his book, Guru, how he attained Self-realization by the grace of his own Guru, Bhagawan Nityananda, and by his own ability to receive it. The path that he has trodden is, in turn, that which he recommends and makes available to his followers. It involves, in addition to exposure to the guru’s presence (in darshans and satsang), meditation upon the guru and the cultivation of an attitude of devotion, openness and service toward him, for it is upon the quality of an individual’s relationship with the guru and the measure of his love that he may be able to absorb his influence. Even if we are not ready to accept the idea that man can reach divine consciousness or that the Father has had more than a single Son, I believe we may agree that consciousness may be helped along its path of growth by other members of His Family. The goal of the path that Swami Muktananda preaches, being the inheritance of his realization, involves turning one’s worshipfulness back from the Guru to oneself. ‘God dwells within you as you.’” (from the Introduction by Claudio Naranjo).
