Q. How identify a real bona fide guru ?

A. A REAL guru is not interested in how much you pay him, how much your bank balance is, or how much influence you have. A real guru is worried about your spiritual life, the REAL you, the soul. He asks things like, how's your Sadhana, spiritual practices like chanting and deity worship and reading scriptures. He always quotes from scriptures and engage you in loving devotional service of the Lord.
There are 4 bona fide, sampradays, or discipline succession mentioned in the scriptures, and he should belong to one of these 4 only to get the absolute truth.
One such bona fide sampradaya is the International Society of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) or simple known as the Hare Krishnas, which is part of the Brahma Madhava Gaudiya Sampradya
