courageous guru

Let’s say you meet a guru who is actually very kind, compassionate, learned, has the lineage, he himself practices, very, what you call it, yes, little bit of realization maybe, little bit, but a little coward. Can’t do things that – you see you have bought the guru because you want things to be faster isn’t it. Which means that the guru, the utensil, has to perform its job and one of its job is – in order to perform this job the guru has to be quite courageous. And a courageous guru is difficult these days, very difficult. Some people might pretend they are courageous but really difficult. When I say courageous I am talking about gurus who doesn’t give a damn about social expectations. Guru who will not compromise the spiritual path for material gain, fame, anything. Wow, that is difficult.
