Answer

Dear Jaaered,

It not easy to attract a true guru. Only when a a person is sincerely and desparately seeking God, then God will send a divine being to lead them out of delusion, back to their true home in God.

If you know people who have attracted true gurus, why are you disappointed? Rejoice for them.

If you yourself is seeking a true guru, start to meditate and pray to God every day to send you a true guru. When the disciple is ready, the guru will appear.

At Ananda we follow a true guru: Paramhansa Yogananda. You can pray to him to help you find your guru.

You can read his book: The Autobiography of a Yogi to help you understand deeply the meaning of a guru and what it means to be a disciple.
