From Darkness to Light

The Need for a Spiritual Teacher

Rukmini Chaitanya

It is said that the only way to light a candle is with another candle; this is the relationship of the student and teacher. The spiritual teacher, or Guru, is the dispeller of darkness, the bringer of light. These talks will include teachings and stories on this important aspect of the spiritual path. We will discuss how to find a teacher, how to make ourselves ready and open to having a teacher, and how to cultivate love, devotion, and service toward our teacher.

Offered as three satsangs.
