How Do I know That A Guru Is Right For me?
First and foremost, you know by way of measuring your experience of being in the Guru’s physical company (at programs, events, retreats, etc.) over a long enough period of time for you to ascertain whether or not you are having profound inner experiences of spiritual transformation that are permanent.
Next, after having tested the Guru to your satisfaction over an extended period of time, you have to decide whether or not the spiritual methods and instruction given you by the Guru are of lasting benefit to you. This permanent spiritual transformation cannot remain just intellectual. It is based on direct, inner experience of testing the Guru’s instruction and methods in the laboratory of your own existence. In this way, you must have no doubt about what you are being taught being worth your time and attention.
