Re: Theos-World Meditating on the Form of the Master or Guru

One question Daniel, how can one know that the visualised Master is authentic?
This would seem a bit of a precarious method as it provides a loop hole for the left hand magicians to use.

 is common in many Eastern traditions - Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh,
 Radhaosoami, etc.
 
 Below is just one extract from the Sikh tradition. Hundreds of 
 different quotes could be given.
 =================================================================
 
 Some scriptures prescribe the fixation of the inner gaze on the 
 facial form of the Master, so as to make the mind stable. But you do 
 not have to meditate on the flesh and bones of the Master's face, 
 but on something shining forth through it. The face, especially the 
 eyes and the forehead, constitute the seat for the full play of the 
 spirit of the Master. Hence, to meditate upon the Master's eyes 
 prepares a soul for the dawn of Divinity, by imbibing His Nature. 
 This helps the devotee a good deal. As you think of the Master, you 
 rise in the Master Himself. As you think, so you become. 
 
 The form of the saint shines forth in full effulgence. The sages and 
 the seers live in the timeless One and are fit to be meditated 
 upon. --Sarang M.5
 
 The Master's form is the nearest approach to Divinity, for He is 
 the Son of God. One who doth not know the Son, cannot know the 
 Father. Therefore, it is said: 
   
 
 Meditate on the Form of the Master. 
 Take His words as Gospel truth; 
 Let the footfalls of the Master resound in the recesses of your 
 heart. 
 The Master is the Infinite, bow thou unto him. --Gond M.5
 Think of the Feet of the Master in your heart; 
 By constant remembrance of Him, you will cross the ocean 
   of illusive matter. --Gond M.5 
 By meditating on the Form of the Master, thou shall be honoured both 
   here and hereafter. --Gond M.5
 
 Again: 
   
 Remember the True Master within yourself, and with the tongue 
   repeat the Word given by the Master. 
 With the eyes visualise the Form of the True Master, and with the 
 ears hear the Holy Naam--the Eternal Song. 
 He who is saturated within and without in the True Master, 
   the Word Personified, gains a seat of honour in His presence. 
 Nanak saith, on whomsoever the Lord showers His grace, 
   He bestows this state. 
 But few be the chosen ones, who obtain this gift. --Gujri War M.5
