Loving and Divine Soul,
Let the choicest blessings of God and the masters be upon all of you. I take this opportunity to pray for you as we celebrate Guru Purnima, the day dedicated to the guru–preceptors, the full moon day in the month of July. This year it falls on Friday the 27th. It is the birthday of Sage Vyasadeva. Sage Vyasadeva is considered the teacher of all teachers.

Swami Shriyukteswarji used to tell a story about a holy man with a lot of power. A devotee came to him and insisted that the holy man give him a mantra so he can change his fortune. The holy man said to the devotee, “Work, be satisfied with what you get, and don’t run after this occult power.” This man insisted. The holy man finally agreed and said, “Okay, I will give you a Mantra to practice. You will soon get a goblin that will do everything you want, but handle him carefully.” The holy man gave him the mantra and explained how to chant.
