In the Indian tradition, guru holds the highest importance. On the occasion of Guru purnima, I sat down to think about who my guru is. I remembered the times when I mistook some false and pretentious people as gurus. A guru basically leads you towards higher knowledge and enlightenment. So I don't want to disrespect this word by attributing it to just about anyone. To be honest I have never met a human who is infallible. Despite their best of intentions, there is always some earthly emotion that seeps in them and corrupts them. For me the greatest guru has been life it self. Every moment of it has taught me something new. So dear life, I salute you and respect you as my guru. I hope you continue to teach me new things everyday and take me further on this road of enlightenment.
