(Srila Prabhupada murti, New Gokula Dhama, Vancouver, Canada)
"So if you want to be anxiety-less, then you must take shelter of the guru, the spiritual master. And the test of the guru is that by following his instuctions you'll be free from anxiety. This is the test. Don't try to find a cheap guru or a fashionable guru. Just as you sometimes keep a dog as a fashion -- "I have a guru" -- that will not help. You must accept a guru who can extinguish the blazing fire of anxiety within your heart. That is the first test of the guru."
(The Journey of Self-Discovery, Chapter 4)
