In the morning, I thanked Gurudev for directing me towards the Ramakrishna teachings. He said that one would not even need a living guru if one read these books. I thought about that for about an hour and then returned to his feet with tears to correct him that I would not be able to feel the depth of the words/truth/love without experiencing the teachings through a living guru. He laughed and agreed that even though nature and other aspects of living were teachings, a living guru is very unique.
