Do you need a guru? In this service, Peter covers four stages that devotees go through in their understanding of the guru-disciple relationship:

 

1. The idea that they can get everything they need from books

2. The realization that they need teachers to help them understand deep truths

3. The acceptance of the idea that they need the guru, but not being sure if a guru who is no longer in the body can guide them

4. The faith that a true guru, in the body or not, is their guide to salvation
