One Gal's Rules For A Guru

File under: The Art of Guruing

We spend a lot of time at, a social networking community that is loaded with folks chasing whatever dreams of enlightenment they may have. We've recently met one gal who has this to say about evaluating a guru:
1. Can I come and go as I please with no pressure to leave family behind.
2. Can I have sex and not feel that I need to hide it.
3. Are the teachings inspirational in their approach and not a dogma.
Three easy rules for gurudom. That sounds like the makings of a book to us.


  1. Thank you for posting this! You are a gem in so many ways and inspire me more so than many gurus.

  2. Few more that comes to mind ...

    4. Can I be free from weekly,monthly,annual and life memberships?

    5. Can I still go and visit other gurus whom I like to visit?

    6. Can i stay away from the deeksha?
