Upaguru means the teacher that is next to you in this moment. And so, my teachers include the wind, the stranger, and the broken bit of glass in the alley–Mark Nepo
So your teacher is everywhere. Your guru is waiting for you to be ready for him. That’s the model you can work on. So you don’t have to rush to India because it’s always right where you are. Ram Dass
It only takes a quick web search to find the Sanskrit word for the notion of an Upaguru. Apparently an “upaguru” means “an assistant teacher” or “near a teacher”. It feels like the right word to describe how the lessons in life are all around us, we just have to remain aware enough to recognise them.
