Spiritual Teachers – Video Transcript
Today, it seems that everyone is a spiritual teacher; but few have earned the right to teach by being properly taught first. The truth is, that only the one who obeys can command.
There are so many people today teaching meditation and spiritual lifestyles who have not experienced what true meditation is, over an extended period of time; or permanent spiritual transformation, and in a way that permeates every area of their mundane lives. This is what I want to talk about now.
From time to time, there are people who drop in for short periods of time to have Sadguru Kedarji’s darshan and attend programs and courses, as well as to offer their volunteer service. A small group of these people have later, at times, promoted themselves as spiritual teachers, even claiming to lead people to the ultimate state of Enlightenment, based on having spent relatively little time with Sadguru Kedarji.
And some of these people have promoted this short period of time as giving them the authority to teach. We understand people’s desire to follow their calling in this regard; we wish them well in whatever they perceive their calling to be and extend our love to them.
In general, we also feel that people should be honest about their attainment and their backgrounds and experience when it comes to attempting to lead others spiritually, and especially when their public statements are connected to Sadguru Kedarji in any way.
So, I want to tell you about our wonderful, qualified staff of program leaders and staff teachers. People who teach on Sadguru Kedarji’s authority, and with his blessing, are people whom he, and/or our Board of Directors, have chosen to teach and lead programs.
These chosen staff are people who dedicate themselves to invoking tangible, permanent spiritual transformation in themselves and others. Our program leaders and staff teachers are full-time volunteers of our school who undergo intensive training over a period of years, in order to preserve the authenticity of our offering.
This training includes an extended process whereby Sadguru Kedarji tests their spiritual attainment over and over again to ensure that they are offering others the best of the pure Yoga of the Self-realized Love beings of our great lineage of sages.
In other words, spiritual teachers authorized by Sadguru Kedarji in any way, must have passed his tests. We invite you to attend programs offered by our school, and we look forward to welcoming you very soon.
