The question - do I need a teacher or guru? - was answered by the Buddha in one of the earliest texts to record his teachings. It''s called the "Rhinoceros Sutra" because it offers this advice: "Wander alone, like a rhinoceros". Those words refer to the many individuals who evolve and become enlightened without the aid of a mentor.
Today, with so much access to information via books and the internet, enlightenment is even more accessible without being in the physical presence of a teacher. So, continue you path with sincerity along with an open mind and an open heart.
