A guru is somebody who is a pure mirror, so pure that when you meet that being you immediately see where you are caught.
Ram Dass talks about the mirror of the guru, mentioning “I know more than I understand, and I’m intellectually ahead of where I am intuitively.” He ends the lecture with the first chant that he brought back to the states from India in 1967.
