The Teacher and the Taught

Gururaj_priya_137If you find a guru, at any time, who tells you, “I will show you God,” discard him. A guru can guide you on the path, but you have to do the walking yourself. No one else can do it for you.

When there is a true yearning, a strong desire to find the purpose of life, the very strength of that desire will attract you towards that which will show the way.

All knowledge of the universe is contained in you. That wisdom and knowledge is ever there; it is eternal, beginningless and endless.

When a pupil is ready, the master is there; and the master comes in many forms and shapes. The whole purpose of the external guru is to awaken the internal guru. As a guru, I am only a channel, a means. There will come a time when you do not need the external guru because the internal guru will have been awakened.

The greatest thing a guru can do is to activate the spiritual force that is already within you. On a very subtle level he activates that force, so that you feel something. When you feel that something, you start having faith. Not faith in the man, but faith in the teachings and in what he represents. Faith can move mountains.
