Q: …can one have more than one Guru? Dattatreya had about twenty Gurus, he says, and profited by each. From a bird he learnt something, from a butcher something else and so on.
Such Gurus one can have even twenty thousand of. Why only twenty?
Q:: Can’t one make spiritual progress by seeing the Divine in the Gurus?
The Divine is in everybody. So he can see the Divine in all. Why only in the Gurus?
Q: But in the spiritual teachers one can feel the Divine more easily because they have realised Him.
That does not mean that the Divine is not in everybody. If one actually sees the Divine, it is a different matter. But if it is a question of thinking, one can think as well that the Divine is in all.
– Sri Aurobindo
