How Should Spiritual Leaders Share Their Knowledge with the World?





Maybe people should focus more on connecting with the general public. That is to say, not just connect with their own groups, but with other people as well. 

Yes. I think that spiritual leaders should make their goal to not just reach their own students, but connect with the world‘s citizens. However, spirituality is not like business. Business is based on production and distribution. Spiritual power cannot be spread around like that. 

Transmission of spiritual power is possible only through positive human relationships, and through opportunities to form those relationships. And of course most important is the intention to benefit others, that is the whole basis of religion. 

Just study religion ourselves is not enough, we need to connect with humanity, with the world in mutually beneficial ways. If we can form positive, conscious relationships with human family, then we can really make a difference in the world.
