It is natural saying that is made-up, but there is nothing wrong in
saying. Just like, guru is not a guru if he is not teaching spiritual
knowledge, so acarya is acarya if he is not teaching us Veda.
"You should go to a guru who has complete knowledge from the sruti.
Sruti means Vedas. Acarya am purusah veda. Veda means you have to
approach acarya. He knows everything. Unless he is not followers of
the Vedas, sruti, he's a rascal. What is the use of going there?
What you'll get by approaching a so-called rascal guru? One who does
not know sruti. Therefore Srila Rupa Gosvami has forbidden. Sanatana
Gosvami has forbidden. Avaisnava puto hari kathamrtam sravanam na
kartavyam. Because sravanam, sruti...To
go to guru means to hear from him, to inquire from him.
