Legend Swamiji's Discourse

Date: Any time in the year

Upanayana means, "near-leading," leading near, leading the boy to the teacher, taking him to the teacher, the Guru, for this Upadhesha, this initiation. The Guru who can give this Upadhesha must himself have transcended name and form, the relative regions of worldly ambitions and achievements; he must have experienced the Oneness of all this variety.
