    Hare Krishna!

    According to the teachings of the Hare Krishna movement, Lord Krishna is not a Sadhguru in the traditional sense of the term. Sadhgurus are spiritual teachers who have attained a high level of spiritual realization and have the ability to guide others on the path of spiritual progress.

    Krishna, on the other hand, is considered to be the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the ultimate source of all existence, and the object of devotion for all spiritual seekers. He is not just a teacher, but the very embodiment of divine love and wisdom.

    While Sadhgurus can help us on our spiritual journey, they are not the ultimate goal of our spiritual quest. The ultimate goal is to attain a loving relationship with Krishna and to serve Him with devotion and surrender.

    In summary, while Sadhgurus are important spiritual guides, Krishna is the ultimate source of all spiritual knowledge and the object of our ultimate devotion.

    Hare Krsna 

    Could you please provide a definition or an understanding (From vedic scriptures like Purana, itihasa, upanishads etc)  of who or what it means to be "sadhguru" ? 

    For example, below is an understansing of Who lord Sri Krishna is from Brahma Samhita. 

    īśvaraḥ paramaḥ kṛṣṇaḥ
    anādir ādir govindaḥ

    Kṛṣṇa who is known as Govinda is the Supreme Godhead. He has an eternal blissful spiritual body. He is the origin of all. He has no other origin and He is the prime cause of all causes. (Brahma Samhita 5.1)

    Hare Krsna 

  • Dhanna jaat was one devotee of krsna, who would see krsna once he tried to hug krsna, krsna didnt come in his arms, he asked krsna why is that? he said you need to have guru first , when he will initiate you, updated and give you eyes of knowldge then u can embrace me and after having diksha he could hug krsna 

    • Thanks very nice explanation..Sadhguru is also  a guru but most aggressive and is on high priority assigned by God and God I get such doubt...

  • krsna is jagad guru , he can guide you in the absence of guru but you really need guru to give you intelligence and mercy to elevate you from your level

    • True

  • Question is highly vague,kindly elaborate..

    • Edited

    • Is/Was question regarding initiation?

      • There is no was for Krishna. Krishna is everywhere there should not be doubt.

        Coming to my question, there are gurus, there are sadhgurus.. Sadhguru is ultimate uncomparable to gurus like omniscient ,guides every soul instantly leads to god's place after many births.

        I got doubt lord Krishna is Sadhguru himself or not..
