Sri Paramahansa Yogananda,

 CHRIST SAID, "NO MAN can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day." ( John 6 : 44 ) When a devotee's prayers touch the Supreme Being, He sends him a guru through whose agency He draws the seeker to Himself. It is God who speaks through the guru's voice and guides the devotee through his spiritual perceptions.

A disciple residing far away from the guru may practice a splrtual method of communion. The guru, one with God, is present everywhere including the wisdom-center (the point between the eyebrows) of all men. At the end of meditation each day the disciple should concentrate at the point between the eyebrows and visualize his guru. Thinking of him with love and devotion, the disciple should ask the questions he wants answered. If visualization of and concentration on the guru are deep, the chela will invariably receive silent answers to his questions in the form of accruing inner perceptions. In this way the advanced disciple can contact the guru even after the master has left the mortal flesh for invisible Omnipresence.

4 : 34, God talks with Arjuna,
The Bhagavad Gita.
