guru is only a bridge

The whole reason you go to a teacher is ironically to want, to actually aim for, so that one will not want. You understand? And that’s – I am not joking here I am not twisting any language, I am not trying to be clever, but that is the main aim isn’t it. I mean you – that is the whole point of the tantric concept of guru. You don’t want to leave guru independently at the end. You don’t want to leave the guru outside there as an external savior. You want to realize your mind, nature of your mind is the guru. Guru is only a bridge. So ultimately wanting something from an external source is something that we have to eliminate.
