However, nowadays it is extremely difficult to find the right guru in a certain locations. Even, if you are lucky to find the correct guru, he might be reluctant to provide the upadesha of mantras to certain people (could be for a good reason : the guru might be afraid that the particular mantra will be misused or could be for a bad reason : the guru is unwilling to provide the mantra upadesha because of racial reasons or would like to charge a exorbitant fee, et cetera). Therefore, you can consult a temple’s priest and ensure that you are pronouncing the particular mantras correctly. Sometimes, it is better to visit a Vishnu temple for Lord Vishnu related mantras, temple of Lord Shiva for Lord Shiva’s mantras, et cetera. Preferably, you can make a small donation to the priest directly or to the temple if the priest refuses the donation. In a worst-case scenario, learning a mantra via books, televisions, the Internet : from websites, et cetera seems acceptable.
