What is a guru; how do you find one? [Excerpt]

Source: Dharma Speaks Channel

This is an excellent short video about gurus; their role in society and how to find one.  Rightly said, the word guru is used frequently as in “sports gurus,” “fashion gurus,” etc., but when it comes to where the word originates from, then people shy away from gurus in Hinduism because of so many “self-styled godmen” stories in the public sphere who prey on and take advantage of people.  This video will help to give basic pointers on what to look for in a bona-fide guru, as a guru for progressing on a path beyond a certain point is essential.  Learn about this in the video above!
