Guru sees no difference between himself and others – Ramana Maharshi

The Guru is one who at all times abides in the profound depth of the Self. He never sees any difference between himself and others and he is completely free from false notions of distinctions – that he himself is the Enlightened or the Librated while others around him are in bondage or the darkness of ignorance. His firmness or self-possession can never be shaken under any circumstances and he is never perturbed.
The Master is within; meditation is meant to remove the ignorant idea that he is only outside.
When the wrong identification of oneself with the body ceases the Master is found to be one other than the Self. Ramana Maharshi
