Gurus Can Be Such Assholes

"A man walks from South India to the Himalayas in order to see a famous guru. The teacher allows him one question. The questioner wants it to be very precise, so he says: “Can I ask in Telugu?”

“Yes,” says the teacher, “and that was your one question. The rest you must ask your heart.”" ~David Dean Shulman Spring, Heat, Rains: A South Indian Diary
