THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION As a beautician is to a worldly person to improve his external beauty, so is a Guru to a spiritual person to improve his internal beauty.
To improve our physical beauty we regularly go to salon/beauty parlor whenever we feel our hair needs a cut or trim or dead skin needs a peel through manicure/pedicure or facial for cleansing the skin or massage for the stressed muscles etc. Similarly for inner beauty we should regularly go to a Guru (spiritual master) to get the unwanted layers of negative impressions peeled off, to shed excessively accumulated Ego, arrogance and false pride, to massage the tired/depressed/rigid mind, to remove the clots of vengeance and revenge from the heart, to cleanse the soul to see the faded God's vision clearly and to clean our inner self from the garbage of hatred, fear and jealousy.
Guru, the perfect beautician, helps project our true divine self (the Atman) to ourselves. The divine, peaceful and blissful Atman which got buried under the layers of worldly delusion, greed, aversions and attractions is gifted back to us in its original form by the Guru. He knows clearly what, where, when and which areas of our inner self needs to be cleaned to make us realize our own self to us. What is required from our side is a regular visit to him and complete surrender, rest all will be taken care of by him.

THE JOY OF SEEING OTHERS JOY IS A BIGGER JOY THAN OUR OWN JOY
