IF EVERYONE IS DESCENDING FROM MASTER, THEN THERE IS ONLY ONE MASTER.

ALL ARE FROM MASTER SINCE MASTER ALONE EXIST; REMAINING ALL MANIFESTED FROM MASTER!

Dear Sankar, there is only one Master.  He is not known to us, nor
can he be seen or touched by us.  This Master, the Causeless Cause,
causes many masters in different times, as times demand.  These
masters are 'avataras', who are equally capable to take the seekers
in the path and show the goal.  Remember, the Master can only show the
goal and it is for you to reach it merge with it.   Please read Who am I?
by Bhagavan written in 1902, at the age of 21.  The Master need not
be living in a body and it is left to you to call him, Sadguru, Parama Guru,
Parameshti Guru, or Brahma Guru.  After all, what is there in a name?
Bhagavan also has said that the seeker can know the Guru is he
gets immense peace in his presence or through his books, his words,
his name etc.,   Arunachala Siva.

Dear sir

I was told that the person who gives and shows the path he is a teacher or guide. whereas the Master will give
real experience there and then which never fades away. It is the ultimate. In front of Bhagavan many were so fortunate even people did not know what is meditation or sadhana. Same thing happened to Vivekananda with Ramakrishna paramahamsa. It depends on our luck to have such a Master in our live time. As Subramaniyan ji told Bhagavan's books are there for us to show the path.

Dear Ramanaduli, I used the word Master, to indicate the Adi-Guru,
Sri Dakshinamoorthy.  The word can also be used for a Guru who
is a Brahma-Jnani.  As you rightly said, teachers give scriptural knowledege only, the Jnana Guru confers liberation, with or without scriptural knowledge.  In Ramanasramam, the Guru-paramapra is chanted as:  Sri Dakshinamoorthy prarambe, Sankaracharya madhyame,
Sri Ramana Guru.  Skanda, the son of Siva, is called Parama Guru,
the one who taught the pravana mantra purport to Siva Himself!
In Sri Ramana Gita, Bhagvan says to Kavyakanta Ganapati Muni:
The Guru is one in whose Presence you get immense peace.

Arunachala Siva.
