Prabhupāda: The tendency for becoming guru is there. But... After all, every one of you should become guru. But why immature attempt? That is my question. Everyone will become guru when he is expert disciple, but why this immature attempt? Guru is not a thing, imitation. When one is mature, he becomes guru automatically. What is the answer to this? There have been some attempts to become guru. I am training you all to become guru in the future. Now the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement, the properties and everything, I will not take with me. They will remain where they are. It requires very mature treatment. But there has been some attempt to become guru immediately. Am I correct or not? Hm? We are also acting as guru. My other Godbrothers, they are also doing that. But we never attempted during the lifetime of our Guru Mahārāja. That is not the etiquette. There is immature attempt. And it is not a thing that by artificial attempt one becomes guru. Guru is accepted by (indistinct), not by atificial attempt. Āmāra ājñāya guru hañā (CC Madhya 7.128): "Follow My order and become guru." Not that you become guru. āmāra ājñāya guru hañā tāra' ei deśa yāre dekha, tāre kaha "kṛṣṇa"-upadeśa (CC Madhya 7.128) Hmm? You have to follow the paramparā system, order. That is guru. Not that I declare myself as guru. No. That's not guru. Guru is he who has strictly followed the order of the spiritual master. He can become guru. Otherwise it will be spoiled. Artificial attempt is not good.
