Guru-stotram is a selection of fourteen verses from the Guru-gita, found in Skanda-purana. It is a conversation between Lord Siva and Mother Parvati on the glory of the Guru. It is chanted by the students at the beginning of every study session.
The refrain “tasmai sri gurave namaḥ – salutations to that noble Guru” marks the end of each verse. As the student chants the stotra and mentally prostrates to the Guru, there arises a sense
of surrender. Consequently, the gradual dissolution of the ego is initiated.
Chanting the Guru-stotram with a comprehension of its meaning is a simple but very powerful and effective tool to integrate our personality, invoke devotion, elevate our thinking and purify our speech.
