We spend a lot of time at tribe.net, 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.Three easy rules for gurudom. That sounds like the makings of a book to us.
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.
