Since 1977 the philosophical, practical and social discussions on the subject of the guru and the disciple relationship have been extensive and lively. At times they’ve been politicised and the highly-charged rhetoric has become a distraction from the main issues.
In my pastoral work for ISKCON, I was regularly asked similar questions, so I wrote The Guru & Disciple Book. At 432 pages it has much material to keep the discerning reader happy. This site is to keep the discussion going, and to support the one-day study course of the same name.
