Finding Your Voice - The Spiritual Master
"Know that the spiritual path is about surrender. Surrender to your intuitive self. Surrender to a more natural way of singing and living. Don't force anything. Effort is required only when we think we ought to do something. It is then that we strive. Striving in life and in singing makes for unhappiness and discomfort. In singing it tenses muscles and shortens breath. It works against our natural inclinations and responses. It separates us from that gentle stirring that infuses us and our voice with energy and individuality, excitement and emotion, beauty and power."

Sahaj Marg Introduction
"SHRI RAM CHANDRA MISSION. The Practice of Sahaj Marg. An Introduction to Sahaj Marg: A Raja Yoga System of Meditation by Shri Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari. Spirituality. The term 'spirituality' has nothing to do with religion, as commonly understood. In fact, according to Sahaj Marg, spirituality begins where religion ends. While the basic education of man can be undertaken by religion, his further development when he has reached what may be termed adulthood, can only be offered by spirituality. Religion enforces an externalization of the mind in man's search for God. Mysticism or spirituality internalizes the search and directs the mind to the heart of man where the search should really commence. God is not something external , waiting with a rod in hand to punish us for our transgressions. The term 'spirituality' has nothing to do with religion, as commonly understood. "

Sri Guru & His Grace: Chapter Ten: Instructing Spiritual Masters
"Devotee: Can you explain how the principle of disciplic succession works? I Was under the impression that in your teaching there must ke an unkroken chain of disciplic succession beginning with God Himself, in order for the knowledge to be properly understood. But when I read Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada's Bhagavad-gita As It Is, I found that the disciplic succession contains only thirty-eight names, although it says that the system is fifty centuries old. Is this a complete list, or are some names left out? How are we to understand these apparent historical discrepancies?..."

The Mystery of the Light : The Life and Teaching of Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov by Georg Feuerstein
"Paperback Published by Morson Pub Publication date: December 1994 ISBN: 1878423207 An inspiring, powerful reminder that Western masters do exist. I read this book about three months ago, and much of it still quietly percolates through my thoughts and meditations. The Mystery of Light is an excellent introduction to the life and teachings of the European master Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov. As the Western world continues to explore and discover other spiritual traditions, from aboriginal cultures to Eastern traditions, we are in danger of rejecting the rich Western mystical tradition. Part of the problem is a lack of well-known, modern masters and saints from the West. It's gotten to the point that many spiritual seekers would scoff at the idea of a Caucasian spiritual master."

"The Gursikh by Yuktanand Singh
Some readers will be baffled that I use the terms like, Truth, God, Waheguru, Shabad, Gurbani, Guru, Gurus, True Teacher, Saint, Khalsa, Gursikh, True Sikh etc. in the present and past tense, and interchangeably, as if they were synonyms. Guru Nanak's philosophy, like the Vedas, teaches a unity in diversity. In reality, and under ideal conditions, what is the difference between a True Sikh and the Guru, and what is the difference between the Guru and God? The one cannot help it but quietly disappear into the other. I have used these terms freely to indicate this as the goal of a Sikh and its relevance, today as well as in the past, and that we cannot tell where one merged into the other. "
"On Spiritual Authority John Welwood. The false prophet and the genuine spiritual master both undermine the habitual patterns of self. Yet one does this in a way that creates bondage, while the other does it in a way that promotes liberation. What is this important difference? How does genuine spiritual authority operate? This is not a simple question."
