spirituality... initiation by a Guru is not necessary. It is not an essential
must although many religious leaders emphasize upon it.
I would have
definitely had a spiritual guru for myself if I could find one.
When I was 11 years of age I started in search of a spiritual master
but could not find one. However best I tried... there was none to
be found! In my life I could never find a Guru who was self realized
and who truly had seen God.
Whether I went
to Haridwar or Rishikesh the situation remained the same. On every
trip I accompanied my father I used to search for a Guru who was
nowhere in sight. Ultimately, I completely resigned hoping that
I would never get a chance to see God face-to-face.
while I lay on a cot... a thought passed my mind. I asked of God whether he was
willing to be my guide in life and to my astonishment his answer was yes! I exactly
remember the dialogue I had with God. I asked of him why he had not hinted to
me before, that he was willing to become my guide... my spiritual guru for all
matters that are!
came the reply... you never asked me! This makes one thing clear that God Almighty
never interferes in the creation of his. It was my ignorance that I completely
forgot to ask god Almighty for the same earlier.
how did such a situation come to pass! Deeply engrossed in the thoughts of not
finding a Guru... the image of Eklavya flashed my mind. I could not understand
the meaning of the same. I pondered over the image of Eklavya throughout that
day and the following day. Somewhere after 72 hours did I realize that Eklavya
had no guru in his times! More on spiritual guru here - Guidance
