What is a Spiritual Master? | Abraham Hicks.

In general, a teacher or mentor is a person who guides, instructs, or helps another in the process of gaining knowledge, understanding, or skills. What about a spiritual teacher or mentor? What is their role? And more specifically what does a spiritual teacher or spiritual mentor in the nondual or Advaita tradition do?

Spiritual Masters are those rare beings who have realized their oneness with the Supreme, – the highest transcendental Consciousness. Spiritual Masters have not only realized their true self but also work selflessly to inspire humanity to seek the divinity within themselves.

A real spiritual Master is able to expedite the progress of his/her disciples through their close connection to God and the grace of God.

Spiritual Masters have taught the timeless spiritual truths in a variety of ways, Their teachings reflecting the environment and period in which they live.

So, what is a spiritual master? If you want a detailed answer there is a book I recommend called "

Great spiritual Masters like Krishna, Buddha and Jesus Christ have led to the formation of religions dedicated to following the teachings of these avatars. Each spiritual master has offered their own unique path towards the highest Truth. However, although the outer forms may differ the ultimate realization is the same.

A Master is someone who has achieved control, mastery of all his thoughts, feelings and acts […] To achieve complete control of all one’s thoughts, feelings and acts implies the use of special methods, a special discipline and a profound knowledge not only of the structure of a human being but also of the forces at work within him and the correspondences between his being (his organs and his several bodies) and the different realms of nature. To be master of oneself implies, also, that one is familiar with the entities of the invisible world and the structure of the entire universe. A Master is someone who has resolved all the essential problems of life, who is free, who possesses an extremely strong will and who, above all else, is full of love, kindness, gentleness, and light. What a tremendous amount of work, and what concentrated study and perseverance it takes to become a Master.!

The power of a genuine Master lies in the fact that all his actions are in perfect accord with his philosophy. He is the first to practice, in his own life, what he preaches to others; he is a living example. And to be a living example is to be a fountainhead, a spring to which plants, animals, and human beings are drawn. This is why there are always disciples round a Master. "

The true spiritual teacher is here simply to serve your own recognition of your true nature. The final measure of his or her functioning in this capacity is the degree of your own depth of realization. The rest is relatively unimportant unless it serves this simple but subtle goal.
