Religious and yogic gurus are not spiritual gurus. No spiritual master accept anyone as his disciple. Religious and yogic gurus are based on the 'I' or ego as self and conceptual god as reality. But spiritual master is bases on the invisible substance and witness of the 'I' or mind as self.
The religious and yogic gurus direct the seeker into ego based paths like devotion,karma and wisdom. Whereas spiritual master directs the seeker to focus his attention on the true self that is spirit or Atman.

Religious and yogic gurus declare that god as ultimate reality. God is first and Self is secondary in religion and yoga.
Religion declares conceptual gods heaven and hell, birth life and death, rebirth,karma,paradise sin,evil,as reality.

Real spirituality declares whatever is seen,known,believed ,experienced as real is unreal on the base true self which is Atman.

SPIRITUAL MASTER NEVER CONDEMNS RELIGION OR ANY RELIGIOUS GURUS BUT RESPECT THEM. SPIRITUAL MASTER WILL NOT IMPOSE HIS IDEA OR TRY TO CONVERT OTHERS TO HIS IDEA OF TRUTH.

SPIRITUAL MASTER NEVER ACCEPT HIMSELF AS HIS GURU BUT SAYS THE SEEKER TO ACCEPT THE TRUE SELF AS HIS GURU BECAUSE HE IS FULLY AWARE OF THE FACT THAT THE SELF THAT IS SPIRIT IS THE INVISIBLE SUBSTANCE AND WITNESS OF THE EXPERIENCE OF DUALITY, THUS THERE IS NO SECOND THING OTHER THEN NON-DUAL SELF WHICH IS SPIRIT OR ATAMAN.

THUS ANY BODY IS SEEKING TRUTH OR SELF REALIZATION THEY SHOULD FIND A SPIRITUAL MASTER WHO GUIDES THEM IN THEIR SPIRITUAL PURSUIT.

SPIRITUAL MASTER /GURU

A GURU never gives you any theory or any type of practices ,HE just awaken you and direct you invisibly to find your true self/inner guru.
Without any physical guru it is really impossible in 99.99% cases to meet with your inner guru.
Only one in thousands of years is able to find his/her inner guru without a physical guru in his/her life, and that is due to his/her past life perfection only,where he/she had a physical guru.
All such type of statements are misleading and due to ignorance or here without any purpose only to mislead the truth seekers.
I have no intention to dishonor any body but to put light on false statements.
The most recent example is OSHO,He was just realized man in his past life with the help of HIS GURU and completed HIS Realization in this life without any guru,but HE was strongly in favor of guru & disciple tradition.
It is really impossible for a new one to find his inner guru without a physical guru.
It is really a mistake for the seeker & any others to see only the physical body of the guru and not HIS Universality.
Though Guru is Universal but at that time HE is in a physical form,we have to see the omnipresent guru in him not as a physical one,only then we can succeed in our path.
The intention/work of a sad guru is to awaken you and to meet with your inner guru & then the physical guru let you free to find your TRUTH by your own.
OM
