Guru’s importance

गुरुमाहात्म्यं नाम पञ्चदशोऽध्यायः
Guru’s importance Chapter 15

उपमन्युरुवाच |
Upamanyu said (to Lord Krishna)

यथेह वह्निसंपर्कान्मलं त्यजति काञ्चनम् || 26 ||
तथैव गुरुसंपर्कात्पापं त्यजति मानवः |
यथा वह्निसमीपस्थो घृतकुम्भो विलीयते || 27 ||
Just as gold gives up dirt on contact with fire in this world, very similarly a human gives up sin on contact with a Guru. Just as a pot of ghee melts away (disappears) when (placed) near fire (similarly do the sins slowly melt away or disappear in vicinity of a Guru).
