Rudra Gitam: A Hidden Gem
Srimad Bhagavatam shows us through many instances that the Spiritual Master – the Guru – serves as the bridge for one to reach the Divine. The Guru shows the spiritual aspirant how to contemplate on the Lord in order to have His vision and when the Lord reveals Himself, what should the aspirant seek from Him.
In the 24th chapter of the 4th Canto, Bhagavatam reveals a unique Guru, who is none but Lord Shiva, who leads the spiritual aspirants to the Holy Feet of the Lord. His sermon is called the Rudra Gitam.
