3075The PATH to the DICTIONARY to the LexiCON
- Dec 19, 2007Hi Sharon and All,
Klemp copied, edited, deleted from, and added to Paul's
ECKANKAR Dictionary to create his EK Lexicon. In this case,
except for the additional word spellings Paul used, Klemp
uses the same definitions as Twitchell... who copied them
from "The Path of the Masters!"
---------GURUMUKHS and MANMUKHS---------
"The MASTERs classify MANKIND into TWO main divisions--
MANMUKHS and GURUMUKHS. This means THOSE WHO FOLLOW
the dictates of THEIR OWN MINDS, and those who follow the GURU.
The Manmukh is the one who FOLLOWS the MIND, OBEYS
EVERY WHIM, and does just what it likes. He is a SLAVE to
But the man WHOSE FACE IS ALWAYS towards the GURU
is the free man, and the one who is developing his own
powers to the greatest extent possible. He is not under
the ever-grinding wheel of birth and death, the grinding
wheel of desire and karma. But this sublime achievement
is accomplished only by the help of the MASTER."
[The Path of the Masters, pgs. 360-361]
"GURUMUKH. One WHOSE FACE IS ALWAYS turned to the
Master; a spiritual devotee. see also Manmukh."
[EK LexiCon, pg. 84]
"MANMUKH. One of the TWO groups of all MANKIND;
THOSE WHO FOLLOW THEIR OWN MINDS, OBEYing the
MIND's EVERY WHIM, a SLAVE to it and its PASSIONS."
[EK LexiCon, pg. 133]
p.s. It looks like we've discovered the "Masters"
Paul was referring to in his "Letters to a Chela."
They were the Ruhani Satsang Masters spoken
of in The Path of the Masters.
Letters to a Chela -- Chapter 10 [by Paul Twitchell]
Perversions of the Mind
"There are two kinds of people on this planet ACCORDING
TO THE MASTERS. (which masters?) There are the Manmukhs,
who follow the mind and obey its every whim, and there are
the Gurumukhs, those who are free and developing their powers
to the greatest possible extent toward the proper goal. The
careful observer can quickly identify who is who."
