Seeker of truth has to take the direct path and avoid losing precious time and effort***

Buddha: - There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth: not going all the way... and not starting
The word Brahman means ultimate truth or reality which cannot be indicated by any word. The Brahman can be expressed through silence, because it is beyond the experience form, time and space. . Therefore, the word Brahma in the clearly stands for the essence of the three states, which is consciousness only. The final use of pursuit of truth is to know that Self is the consciousness. 
Self-Realization is the direct realization of the ultimate truth, in contrast with traditional paths, which are indirect. And the other paths cannot lead to the ultimate destination because they are based on the false Self, which they hold as real Self and false experience as reality. 
Until and unless one overcomes physical shackle it is impossible to understand and assimilate the nondual truth, which is beyond the physical existence or the universe. The Consciousness itself is Lord of itself though not of the universe. And having nothing it has all. 
Seeker of truth has to take the direct path and avoid losing precious time and effort losing himself in philosophical studies. 

Yoga Vasistha says: ~ Self-knowledge or knowledge of truth is not had by resorting to a Guru (preceptor) nor by the study of scripture, nor by good works: it is attained only by means of enquiry inspired by the company of wise (Gnani). One’s inner light alone is the means, naught else. When this inner light is kept alive, it is not affected by the darkness of inertia. 

There is no need to condemn Gurus, but there is need highlight how they become an obstacle in realizing the ultimate truth or Brahman.

Swami Vivekananda said: ~   “You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher, but your own Soul.”

The Guru is useless so long as the ultimate truth is unknown, and Guru is equally useless when the ultimate truth or Brahman   has already been known.
A Guru is needed in religious and the yogic path.  There is no need of a Guru in to acquire Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atma Gnana. 

The seeker has to have courage to accept the truth and reject the untruth because most people will not be able to subscribe to path of truth because they sentimentally and emotionally involved with their inherited belief system and even if one does he has to overcome all his doubts confusion and despair. These are problem for the seekers who are from religious background because of their conditioning and they are made to accept their blind belief as truth and their interest or insight is not deep. Thus all my blogs are useful analyse these problems because they highlight the what is not truth according to their own religious scriptures and make them to accepts the truth, and reject all the false conditioning and move ahead in pursuit of truth.

It becomes difficult for the orthodox cult to accept anything else as truth other than their accepted belief, which they hold as truth. Although all religious followers are participants alike in the spiritual endeavour of the world, overzealous flowers of each religion are not prepared to accord equal status to other faiths and assert the superiority of their own. Thus, the universal brotherhood is a total impossibility because it is difficult to accept anything other than their inherited belief system. Inter-religious harmony or understanding has become impossibility
