This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

The upaguru as a prolongation of the guru

The guru is defined by qualifications because unlike the upaguru who may in fact be completely unconscious of the role he plays, the guru must be able to see into the possibilities and aptitudes of his disciples and in addition must know how to make use of circumstances of ever kind in order to develop these possibilities in his disciples. He may even engage in the manufacture of such circumstances in order to bring about the desired effect. In a sense, the upaguru can be understood as a prologation of the guru in the sense that the latter is capable of making use of people and things thereby rendering them upagurus in that situation.
