Maharshi Mehi’s Hymn to His Satguru

Baba Devi Sahab (left), Maharshi Mehi (right)

“Great praise to Satguru Devi Sahib!
This world is like a dark terrifying well;
The center of the body as well is full of darkness,
Lying midst darkness, the individual self,
Forgetting its home and spiritual self, is variously afflicted,
In absence of the Satguru, the individual self is extremely tortured,
There is no one, except the Satguru, who will be able to solve the puzzle;
And clear the deep darkness and help the individual self to cross this Ocean-like world [samsara],
And reach his home where this Absolute Happiness is;
The Satguru exhorts all present in a clear voice,
That the way to one’s own [true] home is entirely different from the external world,
That path is neither in water nor among the stones nor in the universe,
It is located within the body of the individual self,
Maharshi Mehi says that Baba Devi Sahib is a real Satguru,
One wishing to reach one’s home should seek the Satguru’s shelter
That will help pursue the pathway leading to one’s home.”

— Maharshi Mehi Paramhans, Padavali # 32
