The Guru


 

In the Upanishads it is said, “what is it that by knowing which nothing remains to be known?” That is Enlightenment. To qualify this statement further, to be Enlightened means to be infinite and to be Absolute, to realize for yourself in one lifetime that you have never been born, you have never died, you have always been and always will be. It means that you are everyone and everything that has ever existed or ever will exist. This term “Enlightenment” therefore, cannot possibly be applied to any form of awareness except total and complete union with God. Such a state is only conferred by the grace of an Enlightened Teacher or a Perfect Master. This Enlightened Teacher is rare, he reveals the inner Path of Light and Sound, a term which does not do any justice to the enormity of this miracle, religions speak of this Light and Sound but can no longer reveal it. It is an extremely profound energy, containing all the knowledge required to build the many planes of consciousness and to maintain their presence and integrity. So, how do we recognize this Master…?

Spiritual qualifications of the Guru are as equally important as the educational ones, in fact, are a great deal more important because we are going to commit years of our life to find the answers to bigger questions. Therefore, before we choose to give our lives in the hands of a Guru, it is important to check the following qualifications:

  1. The Guru can convey Enlightenment at will. 
  2. We are able to meet and talk to other Enlightened People. 
  3. Spiritual initiation consists of revelation, and not of information, imagination and visualization 
  4. The Guru must be able to converse with his initiates both internally and externally, since the ability to communicate with his initiates on other planes of consciousness is a part of inner spiritual teaching. 

The greatest and the most charitable quality of an Enlightened Teacher or the Guru is that, on his Path, there is no discrimination on the basis of an individuals’ religious background, sex, creed, colour or caste. Spiritual Enlightenemnt is given regardless of their gender or nationality.

 

Beware of the Guru who tells you that you will have to be dead to be Enlightened, it is nonsense; those who make such absurd statements must be challenged and questioned about their spiritual state. All the scriptures of the East bear testimony to the fact that one attains to the state of Enlightenment in one lifetime through the grace of a True Guru, and it is called jivanmukti, which means to be Enlightened whilst alive.

"The Ultimate Reality is Absolute, having no edges, it can not be examined under a microscope"


 

Since the Absolute has no edges, nothing can be either on the inside or outside of it.  

 


The Absolute is Infinite, without boundaries  or surfaces, being undifferentiated, it has no parts, so where does the individual soul comes from. 


Kundalini Energy is Physical, its awakening is not spiritual Enlightenment.


This is a true spiritual Path where both men and woman get Enlightenment. Since there is no gender in God, many women have attained Enlightenemnt through the grace of the Perfect Master.
