In the Presence of the Master is a series of stirring and insightful discourses given by Sadhguru. In his willingness to share, Sadhguru offers glimpses of the profound wisdom that is otherwise only accessible to enlightened beings. Offering the rare possibility to go beyond all limitations, a veritable Guru takes the seeker on a mystical journey towards ultimate liberation. Considering a Guru as someone who is supposed to guide the seeker in his quest for self-realization, the statement “A Guru always takes you for a ride” may sound provocative, contradictory and unjust, at first sight; however, there are comprehensible, even compulsory reasons for it. In this volume, Sadhguru delivers rare insights into the Guru-shishya relationship.
“A Guru is always a suspect. So, naturally, there are more suspicions about him than anybody else; unfortunately, that is the reality. That is why the possibility which is so close is so far away. So I am not asking you to be trustworthy, I am always asking you to doubt. Doubt is fine with me, but suspicion is a sickness. Doubt means you are looking as to what is the truth; suspicion means you have made a conclusion about it. Doubt means you don’t know; you’re looking. That is a good state to be in, you’re looking constantly.” – Sadhguru, A Guru Always Takes You for a Ride
