The role of the spiritual teacher or guru is to mirror and reflect the true nature of awareness. The teacher’s presence should remind the student of their own essential nature.
It is the love for the guru and the freedom that he/she represents, that triggers the unfolding of the spiritual journey.
The whole of the success and validity of the relationship depends on who the teachers and who the students are, and on what each of them is willing to bring to the relationship.
