It is the tradition of spiritual relationship and mentoring where teachings are transmitted from a guru to disciple. Such knowledge, whether it be Vedic, agamic, architectural, musical or spiritual, is imparted through the developing relationship between the guru and the disciple. It is considered that this relationship, based on the genuineness of the guru, and the respect, commitment, devotion and obedience of the student, is the best way for subtle or advanced knowledge to be conveyed. A true guru is not an ordinary spiritual teacher, but one who has attained pure Krishna Consciousness and union with God and is therefore qualified to lead others to that goal.
