Whoever gives you inner joy and satisfaction is your teacher – Sri Chinmoy

If you think of yourself as the body and do not aspire, then in the spiritual life you are already dead.

What you need is inner guidance and outer assurance; you need somebody to guide you and constantly give you encouragement, inspiration, and aspiration so that you can march along according to y our soul’s highest inner cry.

Whoever gives you inner joy and satisfaction is your teacher.

The Guru who gives you boundless joy is your Master.

If you immediately get an inner response from a Master’s soul, then you can rest assured that you are meant for his path. If you get the utmost thrill in your inner being when you see him then he is the right person.

No matter who your teacher is, I want you to realize God. That will give me the greatest joy. It is not who takes you, but where you go that is important.
Sri Chinmoy
