Jupiter: The Perfect Guru
By Mony Singh
In ancient times people were seekers, they still are but the goals have changed. So one such seeker decided to look for the perfect Guru. He had read many books, listened to others who were on the path of divinity, he went to numerous sages, practiced their ideas but always found himself in doubt.
After 10 years of his search he found a man who was in precise alignment with his thoughts of a perfect Guru. So the seeker said to the man: you seem to be the perfect Guru, my journey is at an end. with great reverence he asked the guru to accept him as a disciple.
Shockingly the Guru said that it is not possible because the perfect Guru needs the perfect pupil.
Even as we near the 21st Century everybody is seeking: majority is looking for wealth, some are seeking health, than there are few who are seeking fame and a very small percentage is seeking divine wisdom. But the aim is to look for a GURU who can guide us in the direction we want him to.
