guru krsna-rupa hana sastrera pramane
guru-rupe krsna krpa karena bhakta-gane
guru—the spiritual master; krsna-rupa—as good as Krsna; hana—is; sastrera—of revealed scriptures; pramane—by the evidence; guru-rupe—in the form of the spiritual master; krsna—Lord Sri Krsna; krpa—mercy; karena—distributes; bhakta-gane—unto His devotees.
According to the deliberate opinion of all revealed scriptures, the spiritual master is nondifferent from Krsna. Lord Krsna in the form of the spiritual master delivers His devotees.
The relationship of a disciple with his spiritual master is as good as his relationship with the Supreme Lord. A spiritual master always represents himself as the humblest servitor of the Personality of Godhead, but the disciple must look upon him as the manifested representation of Godhead.
