Question: What would you recommend for someone who lives far from any of the Ananda Marga centers who is interested in learning?
If you are not near a center, you can still request a visit from one of our traveling teachers. And if that doesn’t bring immediate results there is one more thing you can do. Make yourself “ready.” Practice whatever you can in the most sincere manner possible and cultivate your yearning for liberation. Again, the words of the Guru are instructive. He said, “When the vehement desire for liberation arises in a person, that person attains the Sadguru on the strength of that desire.”
This is similar to the famous phrase, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” So make yourself ready, prepare yourself, and before you know it you will be face-to-face with a spiritual teacher. You don’t have to travel anywhere.
