The internet has enabled people to learn skills that a century ago, required in-class attendance. Technology has profoundly changed our access to education. Traveling is no longer an absolute requirement and massive amounts of information such as that contained in books, audios, and images, are available at our fingertips.
This type of learning has proved beneficial for numerous projects, from small items such as replacing a car air filter to allowing teachers to supplement lesson plans by merging them with global ideas and resources.
However, although its uses are many, sometimes it is essential to be face-to-face with a teacher, who can impart their experience in subtle ways that are unavailable through our computers and other media. Much importance has always been given, in the spiritual traditions of India, to a live guru. Sadhguru explains the significance of this and how one can make use of a living master.
