How to find true meditation Guru ?

When the discipline is ready, the Guru will appear. If there is a sincere desire to find your Guru, you will be guided to the right place. Dr. Vidich cites many different spiritual traditions that say that the pull to find a teacher is orchestrated by the teacher himself. There is a phrase in Hinduism, “Love emanates from the heart of the Guru.” In other words, they are actually drawing us in as our desire for them becomes greater and greater.

There are so many meditation Guru in all communities and religions. There are some who are really genuine and enlightened soul and some who are false and mischievous. It is not easy to distinguish one from another by their teachings or their appearance because outwardly they follow the same traditions and speak more or less the same language. With some training and preparation, it is not difficult for an intellectually active person to pass himself or herself as a spiritual master.

Before you decide about your meditation Guru, please check the following qualities –

1. True gurus don’t expect anything in return

A true Master does not charge for his or her teachings. True Masters do not need to. Many spiritual traditions have always indicated that the teachings from the true Masters should be free to the public.

2. True gurus are not attached

They are not attached to your getting any results, to you following them, or to you liking them. Therefore, they won’t be angry or disappointed with you, regardless of your actions.

3. True gurus help you find your own way

They may have a specific path to recommend, but fully acknowledge that there are many routes to enlightenment, and you should follow or even create the one that most suits you. Remember: the truth is ONE, the paths are many.

4. True gurus empower your own inner guru

They will always help you see, understand and tap in to your own power, grace, and beauty. When you’ve been with a true guru, your own light will shine brighter, and you’ll believe more in yourself.

5. True gurus want your freedom and independence

If they’re the real deal, they will urge you to create a life that works well when they’re not around. If they’re a charlatan, they will want to make you feel lost and needy when not in their presence.

6. True gurus don’t need to be affirmed by others

They don’t need an entourage, nor a following. So forget about phonies who demand your dedication, offerings and allegiance to them and their cause, or who are constantly in need of new devotees. Remember, it’s not about them; it’s about you!

7. True gurus walk their talk

It is easy to teach divine living, but very hard and rare to live divinely. Thus the true guru will teach by example, and will be non-materialistic, fair, grounded, peaceful, strong, generous, humble, and whatever else we would consider universally good.

8. True gurus are positive

Beware of gurus who make people look and feel wrong, have causes against something rather than for something, and look for punishment rather than compassion.

9.True Guru is Ego-Less

A true master is a conduit, a vehicle for the higher power of the Divine working through them. Their Sense of “I” ness is simply not there, replaced by a sense of universal “one-ness” with the Divine and with humanity.

10. True gurus live inside us all

  1. Waheguru Khalsa Waheguru Ji Fate

    Me, the bard out of work, the Lord has applied to His service. In the very beginning He gave me the order to sing His praises night and day. The Master summoned the minstrel to His True Court. He clothed me with the robe of His true honour and eulogy. Since then the True Name had become my ambrosial food. They, who under the Guru’s instruction, eat this food to their satisfaction, obtain peace. By singing the Guru’s hymns, I, the minstrel spread the Lord’s glory. Nanak, by praising the True Name I have obtained the perfect Lord.” (Guru Nanak, Pauri, pg. 150)

    Nice article.
