do we need a Guru ?

Think system of God….by air ( spirit ) we are all one…..with body we are all separate …..and one has a freedom to choose water and food….

In India we have a round sweet ball….made up with hundreds of small ball…..called LADOO….the unique character of this sweet is no body crush no body… each ball is a complete ball in itself….so is atom……but in our world most of the new culture are made in a pyramidal way….with a well- defined hierarchy…..with top …inner circles to many many circles…. people at top are afraid of heights…and people at bottom get crushed because of load…..but most of them in time to come becomes a robotic organisation….with same uniforms….same rituals….and a simple follower become a bonded labourer……their head claim to got enlightened in few days but followers are there for last so many years… think of a real freedom…. 

who is better…..a person taking medicine or a person naturally healthy…?
mostly one will say …..person naturally healthy…..

in time of confusion or stress or feel lost we look for a guru, guide, preacher, inspirational coach, management consultant who will suggest stress management sciences including meditation , yoga, enchanting, and many type of simple to complicated practices which may give some powers …… but all these have nothing to do with health or God……so if people follow gurus … means there is a lot of stress….it may be body , mind, and soul stress ,……it may be a proactive or reactive medicine but this is not the health…..

Lord Krsna in Gita … name and one flower is enough… a child one good morning to parents is enough….and one goodnight is more than enough ….we do not create our children to pray to us ….than how God can create us to pray ?…..flower represents sensitiveness and softness……so if a person is not sensitive towards others and enchant the name of God… not at all near to God…

what one need is a guide to teach ….how to drive a car and guide once satisfied leaves you to self driving ….only self driving will give you courage and freedom…..Gurus are like a bus journey…one may feel secure among many others in the beginning but steering is not with you…so one hardly learns….

look for a coach within….God is a good coach… itself is a good coach….

All the religion which exists in the name of religion are philosophies, natural love which exists without name is religion.

Love is universal truth.

love all.

  1. Hello,

    I am happy to be here again. I feel anyone who can give us ‘knowledge’ is a Guru at that moment – even a little child. However we need to be fortunate to get a ‘real’ Guru for it is he who will take us to a point from where we become self guided!




  2. The outer teacher is only the catalyst . Everything is learned from a teacher in the form of a mother, father, friend and even enemy…. Every art needs a teacher to enlighten us. Similarly the Guru introduces us even to ourselves which we do not recognize due to our ignorance… I on a personal level have learned and understood from my Guru.. thus the shloka from the Guru Gita … Guru Brahma Guru Vishnu, Guru Devo Maheshwara, Guru Saakshath para Brahma thasmai Shri Guruve Namaha…..


  3. Thank you for these wise words. I totally agree with your reasoning and conclusions. I think our spiritual task is to discover and empower the God within and we can only do that with self-examination, self-discovery, and self-forgiveness. Although most of us need help with this, our focus needs to remain not on the outer teachers but on the inner journey. If we persevere, eventually it will lead to the love which is the core of the Mystery and which enables us to feel compassion for otherness.
