Hi friend santhip
What is a guru? Please
I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim
Hi Ahmadi ( don't know if it is your name or if its a muslim sect )
Guru is a human being who has attained realization ( or in muslim lingo, has totally dissolved in allah, the creator ), and can guide others to attain realization ( being one with allah), which is our true nature in the end.
There is a quote by a sufi mystic: When I am .. god is not ; When I am NOT.. god IS ...
HOpe that helped you understand what a guru is, and what the function of a guru is
Thank you for your question
I am not going to check out your hub but you are definately right - it is not possible to attain any higher level of enlightenment on your own - the various moments of realisation must be tested and opened fully with help from outside.
This is why people who sit at home studying get it so wrong and end up terminally confused. It is ok walking the walk but you need someone to keep you on the path through the confusion.
I tend to agree, although the great Advaita teacher Nisargadatta Maharaj said that the "guru is within". His conversations with seekers are documented in a classic book called, "I Am That".
I never read Nisargatta Maharaj's work. My hub deals with this exact point of how "guru is within" is confusing. The guru is definitely within. But one should also be open up to the possibility of the external guru being the same internal guru which is within.

I am wondering if there is a term for this type of thinking:That there is a duality in each of us, personal truth, and external truth. The physical world and science apply to external truth, things that can be shown directly to others, and are independent of self. Personal truth applies to belief...

Just wondering if there's any point in trying to get internal views (yes I know the money comes from google etc, which is where 75% of my hits are from.)But how long an article is viewed for by another hubber for instance - does that increase the chance of good ranking with google or is that based...

Could someone help me understand what an internal link is. I understand that Hub pages doesn't allow more than 2 internal links. I have linked several of my hubs together because they are about the same topic. So one hub has 5 links on it. Are these internal links? I also have links coming in from...
