Find one who is Love itself.

Seek a Guru who you "recognize". One who seems like a friend or Parent. Seek one who asks nothing of you but your mental attention. The Guru will most likely "find you". By that I mean, they will recognize you, and understand your state, and help you from where you are.

The most important thing however is their degree of compassion. Do they "radiate" compassion and "live it" in their lives and teachings. If they are to "lead" you to Love, they must be Love itself.

Peace,
Ahimsananda

Help

But many don't want them, because they create hell and
heaven for their disciples. Why? To learn how to transcend them both to reality - which is always the "all and everything."

My master says, "Existence says 'give me everything. Your whole life, your whole soul....and in return, all will be given."

True masters create hell, doubt, crisis, turmoil, embarrassment, humiliation, they fool you and trick you, everything bad for you to transcend. And transcend it you must if you want reality.

True masters create flattery, intimacy, love, joy, happiness, contentment, everything good for you to transcend. And transcend it you must if you want reality.

Heaven and Hell are dualistic. Reality is non-dual. It's not heaven and it's not hell. The true master helps you to get over yourself so that you can taste it. But you have to go through heaven and hell to get there - you have to learn to not be controlled by either or both of them in order to get to reality.

How do true masters get a bad rap by the people on this site? You tell me.

How do you find a true guru? Open your heart and cry to God until it gives you one. Bitch, whine, be alert, pray, pray, pray,ask other people, be watchful always, search and search and go to hear teachers....find the one you are astounded by and do what s/he says.

Sure you want one? How important is god?

Re: can anybody sugesst me how to find a true guru.

Here all Gurus claim themselves as true and genuine. It is very difficult to know who is true and genuine by using our intellect, knowledge, wisdom and mind.
True Guru is known to God only.
The best course to find true Guru is practice truth and devotion to God. When God is pleased by your truth and devotion, He will direct you to true Guru.
