Guru-shakti is your only refuge. Guru and Mother are one and the same. The more you surrender the conditions of your mind to the light of your Guru or Teacher, the more your sanskar, the dormant negative tendencies, the cause of unhappiness, is burned. Guru and God is our only refuge. Everything else should be made steps to reach that one goal of life, God realization.
