From the modern spiritual classic, “Be Here Now,” By Ram Dass, originally published at Lama Foundation with artwork by Lama residents.
“It’s hard to speak in words about the the Guru….. To speak of the difference between an Upa Guru and a Sat Guru. It’s interesting that when I tell the story of my journey in India and tell of the Guru. I always speak of his miracles, although, from my point of view they are not the essence of the matter at all. But: they are that which is speakable of… It’s a little like that Persian story where Nasruddin is looking for his house key under the street lamp and others come to help him and finally they ask him “Where did you loose it?” and he answers, “in my house, but it’s dark in there and since it’s light out here this is the best place to look.” I find myself talking about things that are talkable about, what can I say?”
