Always keep a light-saber handy.
"It is no surprise that Westerners mainly find false gurus. When you
have cheated your own guru in the past why should you not be cheated
on now? You get what you pay for; that is the Law of Karma."
"So why is this? Why do most of the people in the West want knowledge
from the wrong motive, and get only cheats as gurus?"
"Why? Because most Westerners are asuras at heart. All the
celestials, including the asuras, have to go somewhere when they fall
down to earth. Many of the asuras--who are very fond of indulging
themselves with meat, alcohol and sex, remember--have been born in
the West, where they continue to indulge themselves. Occasionally one
of them wakes up, a little; but because asuras are egotistical they
conclude, as soon as they learn a little, that they know everything.
Almost as soon as they learn how to meditate they start calling
themselves gurus. But what do they really know of Indian wisdom?
Nothing! They are still just probing our spirituality now. They will
be learning spiritual things from us for the next 500 years. Even the
dog of one of our Rishis could teach them for one hundred years and
still have more to teach. Westerners are so far behind us in
spirituality that to shine out among them is nothing. It is child's
play for our so-called swamis to go abroad and try to impress all the
monkeys over there with their so-called knowledge. I can tell you one
thing: A real guru will come to the Westerners only when they decide
that they are ready for real knowledge, and they invite Shukracharya
[rishi and guru of the demons]...
...They won't need to search for him; when they are sincerely ready
he will appear. They are his disciples, he is responsible for them.
It is a great blessing to be guru or king to a bunch of asuras,
because you are in a position to improve them. Unfortunately they
tend to fall back into their old habits very easily, since their
innate natures cannot change. Even Shukracharya tires of them now and
again. I call people asuras when even though they have the desire for
sadhana they cannot seem to follow the basic rules of discipline. I
am willing to try to help such people out, but most of them are by no
means ready for spirituality yet and I grow tired, of them too."
