What is a Guru?
A Guru is an accomplished spiritual teacher – the manifestation of the power of the Divine. A Guru serves as bridge to your innate spiritual wisdom and ultimately to the wholeness and Divinity that is your true human nature.
Aghor teaches that the Guru is none other than our own higher Self. However, At the beginning of our spiritual journey, when we cannot recognize the nameless, formless Guru within, it is helpful to have a guide who has successfully walked the path we are trying to walk. If we are attentive, receptive, and make effort to understand their guidance correctly, a true Guru can show us which direction to go to come into direct awareness and self-identity with our inner Guru. The one in whom we establish the seat of Guru, for us, becomes an outer reflection of our own inner light. As we continue to cultivate love, respect and trust for our Guru, the awareness of these and other virtues within us increase and helps us move closer to our innate, Self-realized nature.
