Question: Are there any Gurus in India who are also householders?Sri Chinmoy: There are Gurus who are householders and, at the same time, they are realised souls. Whose house are they inhabiting? It is God's House. And who are their children and family? They are the children that God has chosen for them. The Guru is like a tree, and a tree without branches is nothing.
