Sadgurudev Anandmurti Gurumaa, fondly known as Gurumaa, is an avant garde spiritualist, an enlightened master based in India. A modern day yogi, mystic, Vedantist, poet, rationalist, visionary and metaphysicist; this iconic master is a paradigm of the Sanskrit word \u2018Guru\u2019. A rare class of illumined beings who has awakened to the higher reality; she has been relentlessly guiding mankind from the dumps of endless suffering to a way of life that is filled with immeasurable peace, joy and contentment. Accomplishment Gurumaa has achieved the highest goal of human life by attaining self-realization. With all ignorance totally eradicated, with all delusions shattered, this enlightened being is forever free of all bondages, free of all dualities, free of the root cause of all suffering. No matter what, all worldly achievements pale into utter insignificance in front of such a rarest of rare achievement. Thus this modern day Buddha lives in a state of sheer freedom full of transcendental joy, peace, and equanimity. Metaphysical Spiritual Teachings An alchemist of the highest order, Gurumaa endeavours to transform ignorant, unconscious individuals into awakened beings with supremely evolved consciousness. Having thoroughly researched the science of involution (inner evolution), she is a highly accomplished metaphysicist, a scientist who has mastered all Vedic sciences including the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Ayurveda and Astrology to name a few. And this knowledge is not mere intellectual comprehension, but it is her firsthand experiential apprehension. Vedanta is knowledge of the absolute truth. It is the cardinal, the ultimate aspect of Vedas. This Upanishadic teachings deal with analysis and understanding of the profound, abstruse truisms declared therein. Gurumaa has lived and breathed the cryptic Vedantic aphorisms; she has reached the pinnacle of the ultimate glory by actually realizing the truisms declared in Vedanta. It is from this direct experience and understanding that she has simplified the essential message of Vedanta, making it easier for seekers to comprehend, assimilate and evolve. These expositions are widely available in the form of CDs, DVDs and books. The book titled \u2018Know Thyself\u2019 (\u2018Shivoham\u2019 in Hindi) chronicles the talks where Sadgurudev has thoroughly expounded upon Sri Adi Shankaracharya\u2019s classic Advaita (non-dualist) philosophy, the Atma-Shatakam. Sadgurudev has given a series of talks on the Bhagavad Gita too. This is available as a set of DVDs which are live recordings of Gurumaa\u2019s encyclopaedic critique, a lucid elucidation of Sri Krishna\u2019s masterpiece ballad. In her inimitable style, the discourses are a rich repository of the highest knowledge delightfully admixed with musical devotional chanting. And furthermore, the narrative is liberally laced with anecdotes and references which ordinary folk can easily relate to. It is also available as an e-book in English. Such is the all-encompassing exposition of Sadgurudev that by listening intently and practicing dedicatedly, an ordinary person can become extraordinary \u2013 journeying from the claustrophobic suffering of bondage to the liberating bliss of ultimate freedom.
