Understanding Gurus Of India

Most people do not know who is a Guru? They think of Guru as a human being. That is not so and that is why there are very few Gurus in the world. Hinduism defines Guru thus- If God in all his glory appears as a human being to give his grace he is called Guru. The body is only to manifest the words. It has no other meaning whatsoever. Hundreds of Indians act as Gurus in India and abroad.

They are all not Gurus. They know how to speak well. All Gurus are same. No Guru is higher or lower. All are enlightened beings, at the same level.

Only A Guru can make you a Guru. That takes lot of time and not everyone can become a Guru. Most of the people get lost with bogus gurus. It is the past and present karma that determines whether one will meet a true Guru. Gurus have no levels. There is no official body to recognize Gurus. Some of them may be in the Himalayas unknown to all of us. Even otherwise a Guru never says that he/she is the Guru. We get signals that we are with somebody who is all-powerful. Brahamn is inside you.

According to Hinduism, you are also Brahman. You have to recognize that and Guru helps you do that. Brahman is both visible and invisible. Helping others is one of the most important ways to reach Guru. Those who help others, get Guru's blessings. There are many other ways. But this is one of the easiest. The other is chanting. Chanting your mantra. If Guru has yet not given you mantra, think of him and begin chanting Om Namah Shivay.

Let the chant take your whole being. Slowly Guru's grace will enter your life. Buddha, Lord Dattatreya, Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda, Baba Nityananda, Baba Muktananda, Saibaba of Shirdi and Gurumai are some of the Gurus of India.
