Ramana Maharshi – do we need a guru?

Ramana smiling

Questioner: I am always at your feet. Will Bhagavan give us some upadesa (teaching) to follow? Otherwise, how can I get help living 600 miles away?

Ramana Maharshi: The sadguru* is within.

Q: Sadguru is necessary to guide me to understand it.

RM: The sadguru is within.

Q: I want a visible Guru.

RM: That visible Guru says that he is within.
