Finding a Guru


A Texas e-devotee would like to find just the right guru to guide him on the path to God realization. He asks Gurudeva how he will know if he has found the right one. Gurudeva offers some very practical advice and explains the need for research and qualification for spiritual pursuits.

You have to realize It to know It; and after you realize It, you know It; and before you realize It, you want It; and after you realize It, you don't want It. You have lost something. You have lost your goal for Self Realization, because you've got it.
