Learning from The Symbolic Guru

Each holy Guru has a unique relationship with the Gurus in nature. Most aspiring Gurus depend the most on living Gurus.

To inspire close friends, Guruji is quite unique. Since early childhood, Guruji has been closer to the symbolic Guru.  Symbols that exist in nature.

There are many.  One of them is a spider’s nest.  To make the story short, when I was young, my body was once surrounded by thousands of spiders.

At midnight. It happened at Pura Luhur Uluwatu Bali.  They fills the body from the neck down.  And one of the biggest spider rises up to the crown of the head.

After that, Guruji often see spiders making nests.  Most often in Ashram.  To this day, we often get stopped by spiders making nests.

After looking at the surface of the earth using spiritual eyes, it turns out that before there was an official religion on earth, the place where humans worshiped was a stone henge.

A type of large old stone stacked like a gate.  And in that place the aura is very sacred.  Stone henge still exists today in several places on earth.

Upon closer inspection, long before there were stone henges, human “sacred places” on earth resembled perfect circles.

The circular movement is exactly the same as the way spiders build nests.  Again, exactly the same.  Interpretations abound.

The spiritual journey is a journey to find the center point within.  The Japanese call it hara. It is close to the third chakra.

The location is 3 fingers below the navel.  The color is yellow. The next interpretation, life is like a spider’s web.  Everything is inter-connected.

In the language of quantum physics, the breaking of a butterfly’s wing in Okinawa, Japan, affects the weather in southern Australia.

The message is, be careful in your steps in life.  Because life is like a spider’s web, whatever is done will come back to the person itself.

That’s why, those who are very hard (full of anger) at a young age, generally experience a hard life in old age (illness, stroke, etc.).

Spiritual aspirants who are gentle (full of kindness, compassion) when they are young, also will experience a gentle life in old age (accepted, cared for, loved, etc.).

Some people like holy book references.  Muslim friends call this “iqra”.  There are many things in nature that should be “read”.

Hindu friends know the Akashic records.  There is a great library in nature waiting to be read.  In Tantrayana Buddhism is called the symbolic Teacher.

It complements the three other teachers, namely the Living Guru, the Holy Book Guru and the Secret Guru. Each four complement each other. And cannot be separated.

Hopefully this can be complementary information for serious seekers on the path of Light.  So that the search is equipped with broad & long insight.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
