Eighth lecture “Ishwarananda’s Path of Wisdom” series "What is the role of a spiritual teacher in human development?" August 31. ONLINE
Have you sometimes been perplexed realizing that your own wisdom cannot take you any further? Have you needed help and support from someone?
May-be you lack a guide who could navigate you out of the labyrinth where you have become stranded. Or you could use assistance from someone who has walked that path and could give some practical advice. Such a guide is called a teacher, or a guru.
What are the challenges and traps of a spiritual traveller and how to recognize them? Could an ardent desire to advance quickly lead to fanaticism and how to keep moderation? Does having a teacher help to avoid such incidents? What are the dangers and traps more precisely? How to remain on the path safely without straying? Is the path of those who have a supportive guru by the side any smoother?
A guru never teaches according to the student’s plan but serves his mission as he knows the right path. But how to find yourself a teacher? How to recognize him or her? How to distinguish a true teacher from a false one and whether a student can have multiple teachers? In the August lecture we address all these exciting questions.
Ingvar has walked the path of siddha-yoga for over 30 years and his students call him Teacher as he has dedicated a great part of his life to teaching and guiding others. In his “Path of Wisdom” lecture series he shares the deeper knowledge discovered on this path in a practical and simple manner characteristic to him with a wider audience. He shows how to integrate the supposedly obscure spiritual knowledge into everyday life and to discover one’s actual possibilities and potential. Human path is the path of practical wisdom, he says.
