645) Whether I know who needs a Guru! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————– So one must approach a proper guru. The guru’s qualification is, in every sastra, that… Just like in the Srimad-Bhagavatam it is said, tad viddhi…, er, tasmad gurum prapadyeta jijnasuh sreya uttamam [SB 11.3.21]. One does not require to accept a guru unless he is inquisitive to understand the ultimate goal or benefit of life. Ordinary man who is interested with the bodily comforts of life, he doesn’t require a guru. But generally, the, at the present moment, guru means who can give you some bodily medicine. Approaches some saintly person, “Mahatmaji, I am suffering from this disease.” “Yes, I have mantra. Take this…” That sort of guru is accepted. So same bodily… Or some bodily wealth, bodily… No. ————
