“My subject is ‘Discipleship.’ I do not know how you will take what I have to say. It will be rather difficult for you to accept it — the ideals of teachers and disciples in this country vary so much from those in ours. An old proverb of India comes to my mind: ‘There are hundreds of thousands of teachers, but it is hard to find one disciple.’ It seems to be true. The one important thing in the attainment of spirituality is the attitude of the pupil. When the right attitude is there, illumination comes easily.” – Swami Vivekananda in San Francisco: March 29, 1900
This lecture surveys the qualifications for a sincere student of spirituality, the necessity of a teacher, the stages from aspirant to adept, and the characteristics of a Master.
Patrick Horn is an initiated disciple of Swami Swahananda, contributor to American Vedantist and Reading Religion, and a member of the Religion Communicators Council, Religion News Association, and American Academy of Religion.
Note: There is silent meditation in the Chapel from 10:30-11am, before each Sunday’s talk. After the talk, devotees and friends meet in the Monastery from noon to 1:30pm, for tea, coffee, snacks and a continuation of our spiritual fellowship. Spiritual talks and classes are open to the public and free of charge.
