How do I find my Guru?
How do I find my True Guru?
The Guru is within you but some of us cannot recognize the internal Guru so we need an external Guru to work like a GPS and point inwards. Here are the three aspects per the Vedantic traditional texts that are essential in a true external Guru:
1] Shrotriya – well versed with the spiritual knowledge and understanding that is explained in the traditional spiritual texts.
2] Brahmanishtha – Enlightened or working full time to become Brahmanishtha.
3] Akaamnahata – Not destroyed by desire & not seeking anything from you in return
Swami Sarvapriyananda has elaborated this in a 7 min talk – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuOHxzJbhHU
May this help everyone on their spiritual journey. Happy Gurupoornima to all spiritual seekers!
