Abstract | Full Text

Understanding the nature of the guru can be bewildering. A source of this bewilderment is that many people think the guru is person, the guru is not a person. The true and pervasive nature of the guru can be concealed and the power of the guru limited and anthropomorphized, and politicized. To use Heideggarian language the ontic dimension will become the focus and the ontological dimension foreclosed. In fact, the guru is not an entity, the guru is not a thing, and the guru is not even a being. The guru is the field of being. The guru is the field of Being’s manifestation of self -revelation. The guru is the radiance of primordial awareness. The guru is your own awareness.
