Enlightened Spiritual Masters of the 21st Century – Part I

Let me start this series with the spiritual masters I know because they have been my spiritual masters for over 20 years: Kalindi La Gourasana and The Lady, disciples of Lord Gourasana, “The Golden One.”[1]



Lord Gourasana, “The Golden One”

Kalindi La Gourasana

From the Dedication of my book A Mad Desire for God: My Astounding Journey With a Modern-Day Spiritual Master, p. XI:

Breaking Free and Returning Home to God

It is the hardest thing to do in this world, and that is to break completely free from this material illusion and return Home to God.

You cannot make it without special power and assistance from God and a spiritual master that is connected fully to that special power. You must be able to receive critical information to guide you out of the illusion and into the arms of the Lord.

Everyone’s path will look different because each person has a different set of circumstances that they must work through and break free of. Though the teachings are for everyone trying to come closer to God or trying to break free, what each person will actually go through will be highly individualized. And in the end, everyone will fully understand and have compassion for each other’s endeavor toward Home.

The transformations move in stages from beginning work to intermediate to advanced and to the ultimate: “Lord, I surrender to you. I lay at your feet in humility and love. I only want you.

My Eternal Love,

Kalindi La Gourasana

Spiritual Master and Voice of God,

June 24, 2003

Kalindi tells us, “Due to the unusually large number of souls that want to return Home at this time, this specific spiritual help from Gourasana [has] come explicitly [from God] to help people who are asking to break the cycle of birth and death in this lifetime. This energy started in the 1960’s [and today] is available throughout the world.”[2]

From the Introduction:

“. . . since the day I met her, Kalindi did everything she could to set me freer and freer from material consciousness, with the ultimate goal of breaking me free from the cycle of birth and death in this lifetime. . . . She liked to say she was our ‘travel agent,’ here to take us Home. She certainly fit that role in my life.

Kalindi was incomparable as a spiritual master and as a person. Soon after I met her, Gourasana declared that Kalindi was ‘The Voice of God’ and ‘Spiritual Master for This World.’ At first I thought this claim was utterly grandiose. How could a single person speak for God? Now, after years as her disciple, I have come to experience that what she declared is true. Through her absolute belief in God, I have found my unfolding faith. Over time, I have come to hold Kalindi’s and The Lady’s guidance as my only hope for breaking free. (The Lady is Kalindi’s first disciple.)

Kalindi’s utterly unique destiny is described best in her book, The Break- Free Message:

Kalindi was given the special destiny to personally present spiritual truth to people who want to hear it, as the living Voice of God. As such, she founded the ‘Path to Ultimate Freedom’ in 1991. Since that time, she has been guiding [those on] this Path and awakening spiritual masters. She has been delivering teachings and programs to help thousands of people to become freer and freer of the illusion each day and to become closer and closer to the endless love of God. This Path is part of Miracle of Love, now referred to as the ‘Center of The Golden One.’[3]

Kalindi died as she lived. Her death came at an utterly unexpected moment. In late February 2010, she flew from Denver to Hawaii to go into seclusion. No one knew that we would never see her again in the flesh. The end came so fast. Nothing could be done. Her organs failed one by one and, just like that, her life was over. Less than twenty-four hours after being admitted into a hospital emergency room, Kalindi La Gourasana peacefully left her body on April 18, 2010. When I heard the news, I was utterly devastated. I didn’t know how to go forward without her.

Two months after Kalindi departed this earth, I was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Losing Kalindi and being terminally diagnosed sent me into a mad desire for God. I knew there was no time to waste if I was going to let go of every shred of material attachment and illusion separating me from Him. I had to do it now, before it was too late. With Kalindi gone, I felt desperate and discouraged. How could I make it without her ‘break-free’ guidance? Would I find the strength and courage to keep going? Little did I realize then that the grace of God would manifest through The Lady, this Mission’s second Spiritual Master for This World. It was The Lady who re-ignited my desire to never give up, and to keep falling deeper into my longing for Home.

(. . .)

We live in a time of epochal change. Many believe we have entered the end of times as foretold by the prophets. From the Bible to the Tao we are warned: things will get worse before they get better.

Lord Gourasana brought this path and its practices at this time on earth for those both seeking to break free as well as those wishing to get freer and freer. These offerings, one known as the Path to Ultimate Freedom and the other called Freedom Walk, offer humankind a way to calmly navigate day- to-day life and find ultimate union with God. Neither is a belief system. There is no religious dogma, nor blanket process. This spiritual journey is for anyone to travel in his or her own unique way. Anyone from anywhere could become a disciple of Kalindi (or one of the other spiritual masters who took disciples, like The Lady). People from all faiths can use the offerings from Center of the Golden One to move faster spiritually. Kalindi used to say, “There are many paths, but only one God.” The altars in each of our communities and Centers embrace all world religions because of Kalindi’s respect for and appreciation of every faith’s worship of God.

Gourasana came in response to the cry of souls all over the world seeking to draw closer to the One True Source. As always, in answer to the suffering of humanity, God sends a stream of spiritual masters, gurus, avatars, guides and teachers to earth. The more desperate the desire, the more powerful the help sent by The Almighty. Given the anguished suffering of these uncertain times, Gourasana came to walk this earth “with a Heavenly Host of Light Beings whose specific purpose is to bring special assistance for rapid spiritual transformation to the many people who seek full awareness and love of God.”[4]

I will write more about Kalindi and The Lady in my next post. I’ll tell you some great stories about how Kalindi worked with me as one of her disciples, stories not written about in my book.
