”I am frequently asked in lectures and seminars, ”Who today is a believable, genuine, spiritual teacher?” Now I can answer without hesitation: Encounter Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov and see what happens’

A Bearer of Light
Philosopher and spiritual teacher, Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov (1900-1986), was a native of Bulgaria. In 1937, at the request of his Master, Peter Deunov, he came to France, where he gave the main body of his teaching.
He was a ‘bearer of light’, a fraternal being who was always accessible, enthusiastic, stimulating and an example to others. He fully ‘practised what he preached’. His life was an example of a perfect unity between his thoughts, words and actions.
Lectures on Life
Over the course of nearly 50 years and giving more than 4,500 talks, he explored human nature in its personal, social, spiritual and planetary context. His disciples call him Master referring to his self-mastery and ability as a teacher, He said:
‘What I hope to give you through this teaching are some notions of life, of yourself, of how you are structured and of how you relate to the universe as a whole and consequently, of the exchanges you could be having with each other and with the universe, which is life.’
The Two Natures
His objective was to help human beings recapture their spiritual dimension. He refers to this as their higher or divine nature. His teaching helps humans perfect and strengthen themselves and find fulfilment in the world in which they live. He adds:
‘Above all, I have endeavoured to shed light on one subject in particular: the two natures that exist within all human beings, the higher nature and the lower nature. This is the key to the solution of all problems.’
The Universal Family
Our inner, individual work must also be seen from a universal perspective. For this opens our consciousness to the fact that we are citizens of the cosmos, members of one great human family, one universal brotherhood. We are all sons and daughters of the same Creator. The teaching of Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov invites all human beings, whatever their colour, gender, country, religion or sexual orientation, to realise a fraternal and harmonious life on earth. This will lead to abetter life for each and every one of us.
Thanks to his shining presence, his example and his teaching, innumerable people throughout the world have found their path to fulfilment. Read More
“A mark of a great spiritual teacher is to convey wisdom of such luminous clarity that it seems genuinely simple- as if we might have known it all along, as if it is innate in everyone. Such a teacher is Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov, whose words have the ring of familiarity and truth. In an age that confuses profundity with imprenetrable esotericism, Aivanhov is a refreshing discovery.”
