Questioner:  I am very old now, and still have not made a Guru, and I have heard that without a Guru salvation is not possible.  My mind does not accept as to who I should make my Guru? In this state, what should I do?

answer continued…….

Swamiji:  It is said that without Guru one can’t gain knowledge, but these talks by themselves are deceiving, because I ask you that is the father born first or the son?  The father’s body was there before hand, but he only became a father after the birth of the son, without that he could not be called a father. Therefore it is from the son, that the name “father” came about.  Likewise, after liberating a disciple, a person can be called a Guru. It comes in the words of saints that “beti puche baap se anjaayo var laay, anjaayo  var nahin mile to tere mere byaah..” Therefore one must make such a Guru, that there will be no possibility of any ignorance “anjaaya.”

Saints have said –  to consider man as Guru or to consider Guru as a man is a crime. “Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu…”  Guru is the “tattva” (divine element).  Guru is not a man, Guru is that Paramatma tattva (Essence, Divinity, Truth) present.  Krishnam vande jagat Guru.  Lord Krishna is the Guru of this World.  Then why must you make a Guru? Consider Lord Krishna as your Guru. If he is the Guru of this entire World, then are you outside of the world?   Who is our Guru? Krishna Bhagwaan is our Guru.

It is a straight forward point, why must you hesitate?  By considering Krishna Bhagwaan as Guru, and Gitaji as His supreme instructions, an extraordinary, divine message for us, all will be OK. You will not get this kind of message in every place, I have seen it, heard it, and understood it.  Such a Guru you will not get anywhere.

Even otherwise, it is a good reminder.
