This book has been written for the purpose of illuminating the subject of guru and disciple according to the teachings of Swami Satyananda Saraswati. So much has been expounded on this ancient and timeless tradition, but this volume unifies the main areas of relevance for the day to day practical application of the guru/disciple relationship.

The first section was written by Swami Satyasangananda Saraswati, who has accompanied Swamiji on all of his tours over the recent years. The second section contains a selection of satsangs and talks given by Swami Satyanada on the guru/disciple relationship and includes a number of quotations from letters written by him to his disciples.

This work is given in the hope that seekers and aspirants may find inspiration and upliftment through the Guru/disciple relationship.
