  “To be a spiritual teacher you need to develop the skills and the art to convey the truth to others. It is the most difficult art, because something has to be said about something that cannot be said in language, something has to be transmitted which is not transmitable.

To be a spiritual teacher needs a particular training, a particular training to convey, a particular training to help, a particular training to advice and counsel, a particular training to create new devices and methods, because every individual and age need something different.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

“Awareness and compassion are the flower and the fragrance of the spiritual teacher. Compassion means living to give.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

“To be a spiritual teacher is the call of compassion.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

“The spiritual teacher speaks to the ignorant person in one language and he speaks to the conscious person in another language to help them to take steps to truth.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

“Shraddha, loving trust, is the climate between a spiritual teacher and a student.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

“Shraddha, loving trust, is a spiritual discipline in itself between the spiritual teacher and student.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

“Without trust between the spiritual teacher and student it is not possible to attain to no-mind, because to attain no-mind needs trust.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten
