How to be a Pundit – there are no easy ways!

by Sep 6, 20140 comments

A number of people have asked about how to learn how to be a pundit. This is not easy, for a number of reasons. It has taken me over twenty years to learn, I am still learning, and I do not expect to stop learning. I cannot expect students to have that level of commitment, however advantageous it may seem. However, I realise that I have to find ways of teaching that are not necessarily the same way as I was taught. Pundit is a Silent Sufi, the rarest, and most powerful Sufi one can find. I didn’t know that was what he was until recently! Pundit taught in silence, since I will have to use words, which are very limiting.

The first question is, what is a Pundit? This question is best answered in a negative form. They do not have rigid dogma. Beyond a belief in God, and the Power of God, and the knowledge that all knowledge, and power, and healing comes from the Agents of God. Pundits work in all systems of Spiritual Belief, and Spiritual Belief Systems. During my apprenticeship he gave me experiences of just about every magical and spiritual system known, plus others that have no categories. What this means is that he is able to work and communicate in the spiritual system required at that moment. Of course, there are no absolutes; there are many variations and versions and expressions of spiritual experience that are cultural, temporal, religious, etc. What is critical here is the ability to understand the relationship of a person to their spiritual and material beliefs and be able to help them in the form of advice, spiritual healing, or some other help.

Pundit invoked these spiritual, magical and religious systems within me. Pundit continually challenged my perceptions, my beliefs, my knowledge, my understanding. He challenged me, particularly by not acting in the way I expected Pundits to act, not that I had any real idea.
