Spiritual Master and Disciple Course

with His Grace Kripamoya das

SP“Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him submissively and render service unto him. The self-realized souls can impart knowledge unto you because they have seen the truth.”

– Bhagavad-gita 4.34

Scriptures are littered with references pertaining to the importance of accepting and serving a spiritual master. But the path to a “bona-fide” guru can seem rather hazy at best, and fraught with danger at worst.

This course is designed to help you understand the guru-disciple relationship on a deeper level, and thus demistify the entire process.

Learn more about the qualifications of a spiritual master, how to recognize and choose a bona-fide guru, the significance and process of initiation, how to associate with your guru, the characteristics of a good disciple and his or her responsibilities in the relationship. The course also touches on the particulars of what acceptance of a guru practically means in the modern context of ISKCON today.

Though this course is a requirement for those seeking spiritual initiation, it is relevant to anyone who wants to learn more about this most sacred of relationships.

This course will cover the following topics:

  • Necessity for accepting a Spiritual Master
  • The Qualifications and Characteristics of a Spiritual Master
  • The Qualifications and Characteristics of a Disciple
  • Procedures and Standards for Initiation (Diksa)
  • Etiquette between Spiritual Master and Disciple
  • Deviant Philosophies
