Sri Nigamahantha Desikaya Namah:
Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Paramatmane parabrahmane namah:

Dear Pradeep,

To begin with, As u said getting the right Guru is
very difficult.

But if u are truly devoted and with full heart throng
to find a Guru, The supreme, almighty , mercifull, the
one filled with kalyana Guna, the parabrahman,
himself will show u the way to the right guru.

In certain circumstances he has even sent his most
beloved ones to enlighten his devotees. to quote u
could see that Sri Garuda was sent to enlighten the
great acharya Swami desikan.

Secondly , one can attain full spiritual knowledge
only when one has full faith and devotion to his guru,
so once u have chosen a guru , do not suspect him on
his level of knowledge.

third, choose a guru based on the lineage they come
from, a guru is a person who comes from a particular
lineage carrying forward the customs and knowledge of
that particular lineage to the forth coming

A person who does not belong to a particular lineage ,
can never be a guru.
