Give up on Gurus
Marianne: Hi, Ram and Sundari. Thanks again, Ram, for your help when I left that teacher from California. Between that and Amma-disillusionment, I’m finally done with gurus and have managed to find some non-flashy, quiet, understated teachers here. Obviously, what you have taught is the fundamental foundation. So so grateful for it!! Some of it is even starting to compute, finally. It’s weird how hard it is when it sounds so basically simple.
~ Much love, Marianne
Ram: Marianne, we’re glad to hear that you have given up on gurus and that Vedanta is starting to sink in. Vedanta turns you into your own guru. Worship yourself. Help yourself. No time to chat. I'm busy as hell. See you soon!
~ Much love, Ram
For years I have happily and diligently responded to communications on the topic of Self realization. Since the publication of my book, “How to Attain Enlightenment”— currently in its third printing —and the success of this website, the volume of emails has increased considerably. Unfortunately, owing to a busy schedule of teaching and writing, I am no longer able to answer all the emails I receive in a timely fashion. However, my wife, who is also a teacher, and several well-qualified teachers we have endorsed are available to answer emails on my behalf. I encourage you to send them your questions.
