Since my enlightened masters teach humility by example, it feels really wrong to name them in this context.

Also, as alluded to above, it's a good idea to get to know basic Buddhism first, learn about how to turn your mind to the Dharma, take refuge as a Buddhist, and so on. You can do this at any reputable center. Before that, you have no basis on which to evaluate either yourself or a teacher.

Taking a guru based on what someone says in a on-line forum, or personal charisma, with little understanding of the Dharma at all, or meditation practice, is probably not going to do much for you.

I believe there are some living enlightened Buddhist teachers in the world today, and many people with realization. Through the generation of merit, we develop the capacity to see them for who they are.
