What is the importance of a Gurus lineage?
GuruSwamiG: Indeed only one that has actually walked it from start to finish can understand and write the map of it. It can’t be given by one with theory and no practical knowledge. No lineage by itself is going to help. One HAS to have a Master in place that has Mastered their own journey rather than a set of dogmatic rules and practices. Am not speaking of dead lineages of pomp and circumstance. Am speaking of the Lineage of Realized Masters no matter what the tradition they passed through. There is lineage as far as a tradition and school is concerned. And this can become a dead thing – when you have those who are caught up within dogmas – practices by wrote – etc. that simply keep on in a spin of creating and exchanging one conditioning for another. So am not speaking of this type of being commissioned… hahahahahahah nor this type of lineage. The journey here was long and colorful – hahahaahahah… it was like tying up lose ends from lifetimes of practices and coming out the othe
