A talk by Tushar Shah of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies
Hinduism pays great reverence to gurus as spiritual instructors, guardians, role-models, counsellors, mediators, and even embodiments of the divine. In this talk, we will explore how the notion of the guru has developed throughout history. Then, by looking at various case studies, we will discuss what role modern gurus play today in the development of Hinduism as well in people’s lives.
