One should not try to become a guru. That is very impractical. If you try to become, you will never. It has to come to you automatically, without any asking, without any effort. So the only way you can get to it is through dhyana. Dhyana is meditation. When you meditate, just meditate and meditate, do not ask for anything. Meditation itself gives you that instrument which can bear this great power of the guru. And then you automatically give this power to others. You do not have to work it out. Just in your presence, people can get this power of complete satisfaction. And there is salvation for you and for others. So all the problems which are faced for the journey of ascent are finished and you are drenched in the bliss of heavenly peace and joy.
