The Self is the Guru

"You have to be your own Guru. 
You must reach that point from where you guide yourself 
in such a way that the guiding lines become part of you."

- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Beautiful quote and painting. Is it your painting?

Hi Natalie.
I love that painting too. It was used on the cover of an edition of The Upanishads. The birds in the tree are symbolic, but I can't recall exactly what they represent.
Someone once asked me to do a version of it, as a commission, but this is the original.

Hi Kathleen.
Yes, its often hard to connect with one's inner guru in our distracted, consumerist society.
