Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

God-realization is always given by one master only. It is only for Irfan — Gnosis — that sometimes contact with more than one master is necessary. There are many cases amongst Hindus and Muslims who have contacted two or more masters.

Very often it is only one master who gives God-realization and Gnosis as well. In my case Babajan gave me God-realization and for Gnosis (Dnyan) I had to spend seven years with Upasni Maharaj. During this period of my return to normal consciousness, if I had had connection with other masters, I would have surely contacted them, too. Each one of the masters who imparts Gnosis to a disciple, is entitled to be called a murshid (guru), but from the realization point of view, there is only one master.
