"The best guru dakshina is to adhere to his teachings and strictly follow them understanding the inner meanings. A guru is not in his body, not even in the mind. The real guru is his teaching. The guru never dies because he lives in the disciple for which the disciple must make vibrant study of his guru’s teachings. Mere physical prostration before a guru is not enough. The disciple must surrender himself so totally to the guru that he should feel that he exists only to serve the guru."
