And here is my brief response:

My dear friend,
Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by me.”  The only way we can know God in a life-changing way (or reach any state of true enlightenment) is through Jesus Christ, His Son.  To truly see the sharp contrasts between darkness and light, please read the book of John in the New Testament of the Bible.  Please also consider reading the material of Ravi Zacharius for further information at www.rzim.org.
Soli Deo gloria,
G.L. Campbell
The contrasts of light and darkness in the book of John are profound.  Here is a sample of the passages dealing with this topic:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:1-13)

And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.  But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God. (John 3:19-21; in fact, start at the beginning ch. 3 and read of Nicodemus’s visit to Jesus by night.)

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)

I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. (John 12:46)

In short, there is no true enlightenment apart from Christ.  Please pray for this Hindu guru follower, that he may know the true and only light of the world.
