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.

Once a profound relationship is developed with Lord Muruga, then with the guru's permission and guidance, true yoga may commence. Otherwise, no matter how long one sits in meditation, no matter how hard one tries, it is just sitting, it is just trying.
