Selecting a Guru
The solution of the problem as to what sort of man should be selected as a guide or guru is not difficult to seek. When our eyes are fixed on the final goal, we can never be satisfied with anyone who appears to be short of the mark. Every saint or yogi has got his own level of attainment and of self-elevation. If we attach ourselves with any one of them with faith and devotion, and secure merging with his highest condition, we will ourselves attain corresponding elevation. It is therefore absolutely necessary to select one of the highest attainments as our guru.
