Definition of a Guru
A guru helps Aang understand and master the Avatar State.
Guru Pathik tells Aang that if he wants to master the Avatar state he has to open his chakras.
He describes chakras as:
Seven energy pools in the body
Can be blocked by an emotional mark
To unblock the chakras Aang has to let go of the emotional mark
Aang is able to open all the chakras but the last one, that is blocked by earthly attachments.
Breaks stereotype of detached monk
Shows monks strive to follow the Buddhist ideals every day, not that they automatically or magically achieve them
The Guru himself upholds the Western Stereotype of an Oriental Monk

When fighting Azula, the Dai Li, and Zuko, Aang realizes there are too many foes against him and Katara. He decides to try to unlock his last chakra and to go into the Avatar State.
Lets go of earthly attachments
