Shopping for a Guru
Having a guru has become the latest religious and/or spiritual trend to dabble in, and with Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestseller Eat, Pray, Love and the new Mike Myers’ film, "The Love Guru," the trend has taken hold. But the concept of a guru should not be taken lightly; it’s “deeply mystical” and “sacred” according to Rob Sidon, a spokesman for Amma, one of the most well-known female gurus out there.
So how do you even start to go about finding a guru to foster your spiritual enlightenment? Believe it or not, The New York Post has created a guide for you. First, gurus are guides, but like your soul mate, they should come to you rather than you seeking out them. Nonetheless, do your homework by talking to people at your local yoga studio, acupuncturist or anywhere you can think of. And no, you don't have to pay someone to be your guru.
Even if you are able to find a guru, what they tell you may come as a surprise. As The New York Post so crudely puts it, “Be prepared to be told that everything that sucks in your life is your fault.” Parthasarathy, a popular guru, succinctly says, “You are the architect of your fortune. You are the architect of your misfortune.”
Would you be open to the idea of a guru? Can you predict what they may tell you about yourself? [The New York Post]
