Spiritual master (guru) – inner and outer


 “the human “Spiritual Master” infact is nothing else, ultimately, than the exterior representation and like a materialized (a representation) of the true “Interior Guru” and if his function becomes necessary, this is due to the fact that the initiated (i.e. the disciple or murid) until a certain degree of Spiritual development has not reached the stage of being capable to directly enter in conscious communication with the internal spiritual master. One has to realize that independently from the presence of an external, human spiritual master, “the interior Spiritual Master” is always present, in every circumstance, because he is a unique single thing with the true and real “self” of the being”.

    René Guénon
