Just yesterday I read this from Sri Ramana Maharshi's teachings:
Q: What are the marks of a real teacher (sadguru)?
A: Steady abidance in the Self, looking at all with an equal eye,
unshakeable courage at all times, in all places and circumstances, etc.
Q: What are the marks of an earnest disciple (sadshishya)?
A: An intense longing for the removal of sorrow and attainment of joy, and
an intense aversion for all kinds of mundane pleasure.
