Did you ever try to learn tennis simply by reading a book? Or tried figure out physics simply through your own speculations? The need for a teacher is obvious in any field, and spiritual life is no different. In fact, it’s an absolute necessity; “The Vedic wisdom therefore advises that in order to solve the perplexities of life and to understand the science of the solution, one must approach a spiritual master who is in the disciplic succession.”
But to many of us, the word ‘Guru’ or ‘Spiritual master’ may be associated with exploitation, mystic tricks, and dominating over others. For good reason, because there are so many cheaters that misuse the position of being a teacher.
