Sri Swami Vishwananda
In truth humanity forgets that we incarnate on earth to conclude karmic bonds. Instead, we spend the majority of our time on earth creating new bonds and prolonging cycles that are unnecessary. The only true relationships one can establish and nourish is the relationship to God. In that relationship none can come between you and God except the Guru. The Guru is no different from God. Surrender to Him is the best way to advance through karma and to advance.
