There are so many "Gurus" out there that claim they can pass on shakti or enlightenment or kundalini to their disciples through either being
prayed to or by merely touching them. In many cases the Guru will say he or she (strangely enough there are many female Gurus who claim this) will do
it at no charge at all. These Gurus live in rather big houses all over the world through the many donations they get.
To my understanding..
This "power" does truly exist..it is One. However, the thought of a "Guru" implies it being separate..not One..something created, not real,
fake..in a sense. [if that is how you should understand it]. Claiming these abilities to be there own, is a falsehood in every way..they are servicing
themselves. This ability does lie in some, but it does not come from them..it comes through them.
I for one do not believe that shakti can be passed to people through veneration of a guru or by his touch - I further don't believe anybody
who says they are enlightened are. The only way to reach enlightenment is through our personal efforts.
You are on the right track, and I am pleased to know this. The enlightenment which you speak of, that is being "passed" is not a physical thing
being moved from one object to another. Think of it as the watering of a seed that has been awaiting rain forever. A "guru" can not water the seed
itself, all that being can do is make the grower aware that they have the soil, the seed is in it, they have a water source, and that they must take
it from there
