Help of Guru
Guru must be a spritual teacher. The spritual teachings which a guru gives and the grace of guru helps you to finish your life with peace and harmony. Guru cannot cut down your lives.
When a person is lost in any situation, he will need someone to guide him in the right direction. That person becomes their guru because he sheds light. A guru meaning someone who gives proper guidance at any given time in life; be it a teacher at school, or a master in spirituality. It is the guru’s greatest responsibility to help their disciples’ progress and build a strong guru shishya relationship.
Everyone should maintain the intention of being a student or a disciple in every situation. A true disciple is the one who grasps all that the guru has to teach them, with the utmost humility and highest sincerity. Neither worldly knowledge nor spiritual knowledge can be attained without a guru. This is the reason why we need a guru until we achieve liberation.
Many different beliefs about gurus exist and hence we become very confused about searching for the right guru. Is there a need for spiritual teachers in spirituality? And if so, to what extent? What qualities must a guru encompass for you to make them your guru? How many gurus should one make? If one already has a guru, can he have another one? These are a few of the questions that puzzle us.
