Question: Is there but one Satguru in any one age or are there many Satgurus at one time?Sri Chinmoy: There can be more than one Satguru at one time. As on the human level there are many teachers, so also there can be many spiritual Masters on earth. But the only real Satguru is God; not any human being. I always tell my disciples that I am not the Guru. The real Guru is the Supreme. Spiritual Masters are His representatives; they represent God for their own spiritual children.
