There is not a soul who doesn’t want to understand the Absolute and wake up to his own eternal nature as part and parcel of the Supreme. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this, according to Lord Krishna, is by taking proper instructions from a bona fide representative (guru) of the Lord. Such a sage, or guru, can assist us across the ocean of material birth and death, over the threshold of material suffering, and back to our original home in the spiritual world.
“Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him submissively and render service unto him. The self-realized soul can impart knowledge unto you because he has seen the truth.” Bg. 4.34
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
