646) Whether I know who a Guru is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

——————— One should approach guru for seeing the tattva, the Absolute Truth. That is necessary. Not for any material benefit. One should not search out a guru for, I mean to say, curing some material disease. For that, there is medical practitioner. Why should you search out after a guru? But people search out, that “I have got some material disease, and if somebody can cure, some saintly person, then he’s guru or he’s Bhagavan. I am poor. If he can give me some money, then he’s guru.” No. The sastra does not say like that. Guru means srotriyam brahma-nistham [MU 1.2.12]. Tasmad gurum prapadyeta jijnasuh sreya uttamam, sabde pare ca nisnatam [SB 11.3.21]. Guru means who knows the Vedic sastra, the Vedas. He knows the Vedic conclusion. And the Vedic conclusion is to understand Krsna. That is Vedic conclusion. Vedais ca sarvair aham eva vedyah [Bg. 15.15]. ————-
