Guru is the giver of gyan, the one who puts you on the path of experience and takes you beyond, beyond the realm of five senses. He is not someone in a fancy robe, with a beautiful beard, who dances around trees and promises to cure your illness by breathing like a monkey, of course after emptying your pocket. That is an entrepreneur, who has devised an innovative marketing strategy for him to grow physically. Someone who is himself tied to the pleasures of the senses cannot take you beyond, which is the ultimate purpose of yog.
Guru is not the physical body, it is an energy through which gyan flows into the shishya, yet it is important for the Guru to be in body. You get a Guru as per your karmas and shreni, it is not necessary that, who was the Guru of your forefathers will be your Guru as well. Whoever can transfer the experience of yog to you is your Guru.
Guru Poornima is an extremely powerful day, merely being in your Guru's presence can have amazing effects on your evolution and give phenomenal experiences of the inner world.
