The Word of the Guru

Nataraja Guru (Author)
Synopsis Millions of people have been deeply affected by the life and teachings of the Guru Narayana, who is the central figure of this book. This is a biography, not only of the Guru Narayana, but of Guruhood itself. Religions and philosophies have their sources in such men, and the aim here is to clarify this fact, without being sentimental or sensataional. In doing so, many hitherto baffling enigmas of Indian life are given a rational explanation for the first time. Nataraja Guru, the disciple-successor of the Narayana Guru, uses the contemplative discipline which was characteristic of the Guru Narayana, and brings the Advaita Vedanta method into the forfront of global thought as understood today, introducing a new science of Wisdom-Dialiectics. Nataraja Guru’s scheme of correlation between science and mysticism amounts to an epochal advance in philosophy. This book represents the voice of the Guru. The Word of the Guru provides a quantity of original material for study including fully annotated and carefully translated writings of Guru Narayana. It describes the physical and psychological conditions of South India with great brilliance. The spirituality of India is set forth here in its clearest terms, unambiguous and shorn of all limiting frontiers, suitable for readers in all parts of the world.

About the author

Nataraja Guru

Nataraja Guru was born in Bangalore in 1895. After graduation from the University of Madras he became a close disciple of the Guru Narayana (1854-1928). As the disciple-successor of Narayana Guru he is a representative of the same pure, direct vertical line of succession of philosophical revaluators extending back through time to the most ancient phase of the history of human thought. Nataraja Guru studied under Henri Bergson at the Sorbonne at Paris, where he took his Doctorate in Educational Psychology. In 1923 he founded the Narayana Gurukula Foundations, a Guru-disciple foundation for the preservation of the type of life and global attitude suggested in this book, and in line with the Advaita Vedanta Ashramas of India. In 1951, Nataraja Guru was himself publilcly acknowledged as a Guru uniquely qualified to present the teaching and attitude expressed by his Master. He has translated into English and commented on all the major works of Narayana Guru, and has written on a wide variety of subjects, employing throughout a protolinguistic or structural approach which could be said to be his unique contribution to the perennial wisdom-heritage of mankind.
