Importance of "Sri Gurucharitra - the holy book"

Ours is a wonderful creation. It is still being explored and understood using science which is rapidly progressing. Yet we are encountering more questions than answers in every sense as we dig deeper. Across the world, if one observes closely, there is the only other way of understanding this vast and mysterious creation- the Occidental way i.e.,  the scriptures and teachings of Great Souls help us to understand thees most fundamental questions:

1)      Nature of Creation and human being
2)      Nature of the ETERNAL TRUTH which can be called in many ways, which I will refer to as ALL PERVADING or GOD.

The human being, endowed with a beautiful instrument called “Buddhi” or “power to think”, has time and again tried to use it to gain supremacy over all other beings, objects and the way this nature functions, but has failed miserably. There are many proofs which show that some supranatural force acts decisively, whenever this buddi deviates beyond a threshold causing destruction to the society.
