"A great yogi is anyone who has achieved the permanent state of enlightened bliss. A guru is a great yogi who can actually pass that state on to others. The word guru is composed of two sanskrit syllables. The first means 'Darkness,' the second means 'Light.' Out of the Darkness and into the Light. What passes from the master into the disciple is something called mantravirya: 'The potency of the enlightened conciousness.' You come to your guru, then, not only to receive lessons, as from any teacher, but to actually recieve the guru's state of grace."
-Elizabeth Gilbert from "Eat, Pray, Love"

Thank you for the informative quote. I have always wondered what the word "guru" meant. It seems to be used quite frequently in Internet marketing circles.

Hey livefree!

Hey my mobile notary!

I too found this to be very useful information.

I recommend the book too. It is one woman's journey thru various aspects of life.

My mom was reading it when I met up with her in Dallas on our way to Ohio. I picked it up and read it right thru. It really 'spoke' to me I suppose.

I guess I've gone thru some of those phases myself!

Nice quote, and of course even in this day and age the guru's grace is widely available.
