    Anandamayi Ma on the True Guru

    There is no Guru without following. When we make contact with Guru—in the form of another human being, in the form of circumstance, in the form of the promptings of the wisdom heart—we can only relate to that true Guru by following. We use our freedom to responsively follow. Otherwise, the Guru function, while still guiding us, is doing so without our conscious participation. A podcast from Satsang with Shambhavi

Customer Reviews

Campo champo ,

One of the best living teachers in the world

Shambhavi is incredible. She has helped my spiritual practice immensely, just through this podcast. She's so smart, insightful, real, and pushes people to get past their attachment to suffering and limitations.

(side note: I wish that iTunes was better at featuring and promoting and organizing podcasts, this would appeal to so many millions of people but it's probably getting buried in deep nooks as if it's too esoteric or something.)

The real deal

Shambhavi's satsangs are the real deal, wisdom words born from experience and an incredible amount of heart. Listening to these podcasts while I'm out and about help me remember that I want my orientation to life to be with my heart before all else. She is real, relevant, honest...and hilarious!

Nourishment for the Soul

Shambhavi's wisdom always seems to speak to me at the right time. She has a graceful way of expressing herself directly yet with delight. I listen on the go and repeat them often. In today's stressful times and uncertainty, there is an inner calmness & clarity, after I hear her wise words.
