The essence of being in gurukul is learning from the guru.
Before the construction of any infrastructure, this is what happens first.
For this, the Adiguru, Sadashiva himself, gives the perfect context behind the gurukul education system
that Paramahamsa Nithyananda elaborates on.
auṁ saha nāvavatu |
saha nau bhunaktu |
saha vīryam karvāvahai |
tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||
auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||
May we both (the Guru and the disciple), together be protected.
May we both be nourished and enriched with knowledge.
May we both work with great strength, energy and enthusiasm.
May our study and learning together,
illumine us both with the sharp,
absolute light of higher intelligence.
So be it.
May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other.
Let there be Peace (in my inner space).
Peace (in the nature).
Peace (in the Divine forces)
