Man can learn only from a man, and hence God teaches through a human body.
In your Guru, you have your human ideal of perfection.
He is the pattern from which you wish to mould yourself.
Your mind will readily be convinced that such a great soul is fit to be worshipped and revered.
Guru is the Moksha-Dvara(gateway to Liberation).
He is the gateway to the transcendental Truth-Consciousness.
But, it is the aspirant that has to enter through it.
The Guru is a help, but the actual task of practical Sadhana falls on the aspirant himself.
