A cheat sheet to recognize a bogus guru

With so many faked gurus around, I think we should construct a cheat sheet with guidelines based on each one's experience on how to recognize (or at least suspect) a bogus guru...

The true guru

I have been searching and meeting few gurus, but I am always very concerned about their honesty and being genuine and true enlightened spiritual master.

Would you like to be a spiritual teacher?

people desired knowledge and as a consequence became doctors,

people desired to sing and as a byproduct became famous,

the real Guru

the real Guru

since all is SELF, alias Guru
anything can be the Guru
even rocks and things, even mountains, like Arunachala

and since the Self, Guru, has no dualities

What if we delude ourselves with all that spirituality?

What if we delude ourselves with all that spirituality?

What if we bet on the wrong horse and there is nothing true in the spiritual doctrines we believe in?

False Enlightened

Ravi's picture

These people may look like gold and they may glitter like gold,but they have no real value.There are many people who can put on a show and fool other people into believing they are enlightened.

"Watching an unrighteous act that you know is against dharma, while keeping your mouth shut, is the greatest form of unrighteousness. That is the conduct of a coward, not a person of courage."

Fake Gurus

Any guru who has to be found
is a fake
Any guru/god/expert who sells himself
with wisdom, miracles, rote and ritual, tricks and talk
is a fake
The real Guru cannot be found.
Exactly like Kundalini, Shakti... Samadhi
the real Guru comes and gets the Seeker
at the perfectly unpredictable time
to be Obvious
ONLY to HIS seeker – and THUS transforms the seeker into his Guru.
-- O'no
