Guru—Disciple : 8.


That is the sequence.

First I must realise my inadequacy,

and then I must look for someone who will dispel the doubts in my heart,

who will show me the inner light,

who will enable me to attain self-knowledge.

The person or the event, or the thing,

 or the object that enables you to attain self-knowledge,

is the Guru.

If it has not taken place,

sorry, wait.

 Don’t declare :-

"You are my Guru, I am your disciple."

It leads to unnecessary complications.

That is the most important thing to remember.

Until then go on learning.
