Spiritual Stars of the Golden Age

A cornucopia of human experience of the Divine.

Mahatama Gandhi

Education must equip man to live happily without
making others unhappy, to evaluate things,
pleasures and possessions correctly. One who is
ignorant of the historical and cultural heritage of
his country is like an orphan. For saplings to
grow, soil is essential; for the ideals to get
implanted, knowledge of the struggles and successes
of the Saints and Sages is essential.

This page is dedicated to the Spiritual Stars of
the Golden Age. Here you will find many founders of
religions, mystics, monks, saints, spiritual
teachers, and heroes and anti-heroes from the many
different religions From continent to continent,
from kingdom to dynasty, from desert sands to
medieval walled castle-towns, man has continually
sought his or her Maker, and rendered fascinating
accounts of the marvellous cornucopia of divine

Guru Nanak

The Spiritual Stars pages will attempt to show
the times that divine lived in, the person under
study, the life of holiness, the teaching and the
contribution to humanity at large via the legacy
this divine left behind. These stars come from all
the major religions of humanity, and many are not
even adherents of a religious system, but rather,
trailblazers and founders of new systems,
trailblazers who often paid the highest price for
their integrity and fidelity to their teachings and
divine experience.

These are persons who discovered their light,
shared it and showed that light. Their lives and
teaching pointed to that experience of the
ineffable, and they aided others on the journey
toward that ineffable goal of all human longing,
love that loves the seeker for his or her own sake.
Much discipline was required, and discipline is
needed to manage the mind, create the environment
and habit often lays the foundation for the lonely
journey up the mountain of divinity. Discipline
requires the excavation of Truth, a truth which is
frequently known within as the encounter between the
known and the knower.

Ramana Maharishi

The Golden Age

The ‘Golden Age’ is now. The fruit of the works of
these spiritual stars has created an environment
which has enabled, in the depths of the Iron Age
and rampant materialism, for Spirituality and
devotion to flourish. The faith systems, whilst
recording declining adherents in the west, is
stronger than before as it encourages the seeker
toward a personal relationship with the Divine.
Hinduism, Buddhism, and often Tibetan Buddhism, are
having a major impact on humanity at large as the
peoples of the West and Europe learn to embody the
spiritual values of peace, love, non violence,
right conduct and truth. These values are rapidly
coming to the fore in commerce, government,
education and in the home, as the millions of
unnumbered adherents of so many faiths and outside
those so many faiths (one can think of the New Age
movement in the US) live with character and
integrity and practise their devotion with love
that is shared with their family, their neighbour,
and seek the welfare of all peoples.
