The Divine should be regarded as the supreme preceptor who can destroy the darkness of ignorance. Forgetting this basic truth, people run after self-styled Gurus who profess to impart a Mantra and stretch their palm for money. This is not what is meant by Guru. Install God in your heart. The vibrations that emanate from the heart will elevate you spiritually and confer divine wisdom on you. This wisdom has been defined as Prajnana (Constant Integrated Awareness). To acquire such wisdom, you have to cleanse your mind like a mirror by dipping the cloth of sraddha (steadfast faith) in the water of prema (love) and wiping off the dust of bad qualities from it.
