Difference between a true Master and a self-appointed Master
Many claim to be Masters without possessing knowledge or experience
from the Divine plane.
There are today thousands of "Masters" in both the east and the west
All these claim to be Masters themselves.
Considered from the point
of view of a true, genuine teacher, Master, the teaching of the self-
appointed, physical "Masters" are directly or indirectly influenced
by the negative sensory power.
What is it then that these self-appointed teachers or Masters teach?
On the surface they supply the same teaching, but deliver a
different sort of doctrine, experience. They can lead or guide their
disciples only to those areas within the astral world or the sensory
dimensions which they have reached themselves. The message or the
teaching is the same. With some training, anybody is capable of
teaching without any problems whatsoever. But it is difficult to
provide the practical demonstration and the first-hand information.
This is only possible for him/her who has been appointed by the
Highest Creative Power.
What is the difference between a true, genuine, competent master and
a so-called self-appointed master? There is a big difference! It is
easy to ascend beyond the physical consciousness and concentrate on
the area between the brows (the third eye, the seat of the soul).
But it is very difficult to (completely) withdraw the consciousness
from the body consciousness and reach beyond the astral and causal
regions. In order to accomplish this, one has to be focused and
constantly have his/her attention in the third eye. This is only
possible with the help of the Highest Creative Power. A human being
can never reach this on his own.
Erroneous guidance of so-called self-appointed "masters".
All impressions and experiences from previous lives (all karma), are
gathered in a big reservoir in our unconscious mind. This works as
an iron curtain hindering the soul or spirit in reaching its
destination. Only the Highest Divine Power, the Word or Shabd (the
sound within) can incinerate, eliminate karma and open the third eye
so that the soul can pass beyond the darkness and experience the
spiritual light. Since the so-called self-appointed "masters" are
incapable of eliminating karma, the information they deliver at the
time of initiation is connected to the sensory regions, and the
message or knowledge coming from there is of solely negative
character. This kind of energy and knowledge keeps one bound in the
lower sensory regions and whatever experiences there are pure
Even the five holy names, mantras or words, revealed by some self-
appointed teacher or master not empowered by the Highest Divine
Power, are without any value at all. He, who received the five
mantras at his initiation by a self-appointed teacher, can only
reach as far as the respective teacher had reached. If, for example,
such a "master" has reached no further than the lower or
intermediary regions of the astral plane, neither can his disciples.
On this plane, the disciple may be able to perform many kinds of
miracles and have fascinating experiences that make him believe that
he is in constant progress, but in reality he is moving around
within the same plane.
The self-appointed masters existing today in the sensory world, make
their disciples believe that the experiences they have on these
sensory regions are in fact of spiritual nature. This is misleading
for the disciples and keeps them bound in this region and to their
ego. These astral experiences make on see different kinds of
phenomenon as for example various landscapes, flowery fields,
angels, buildings and various kinds of places, etc. The purpose of
the five names (mantras) given at the time of initiation by a
competent master living among us here and now, is to withdraw the
soul from the sensory world and thereby enable the disciple to learn
to control the sensory world instead of being controlled by it. The
purpose of this is to enable the soul to free itself from the
treadmill of birth and death and return to its original source - to
the home of the soul - Sach Kand.
