1. The Inception
great propounder of New Age Wisdom, Kulapati Ekkirala Krishnamacharya,
popularly known as MASTER
E.K. established an international spiritual and service
organisation called THE
WORLD TEACHER TRUST in 1972 at Visakhapatnam, South India.
When Master E.K. came to Machilipatnam in 1980, Sri Ch.S.N.
Raju asked him to suggest a name for his classes and discourses.
Master gave the name 'WISDOM TEACHING TEMPLE'. It is
quite interesting that W.T.T. stands for both The World Teacher
Trust and The Wisdom Teaching Temple. With this inspiration,
Sri Raju established The Wisdom Teaching Temple at Machilipatnam
in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India with a pious objective
of disseminating the ancient wisdom through out the globe.
2. The meaning of Wisdom
knowing which, nothing remains to be known' - is the
archaic definition of wisdom. When it is known in its totality,
it leads man from darkness to light, ignorance to illumination,
from analysis to synthesis, from bondage to liberation, from
conditioned personal living to unconditioned impersonal living
and from 'manyness' to 'oneness'.
3. Masters of Wisdom
term 'Masters of Wisdom' in its spiritual sense is supposed
to indicate a group of people working for the progressive
aspect of creation. They are the Masters of Synthesis of all
wisdom. They can handle the human constitution to make the
machines of the body and mind function in their proper manner,
so as to tune them to the higher intelligence in man. The
real man is called the Spirit and the Scientists who train
man to have his mind and intelligence, the senses and the
physical organs function quite in tune with his spirit are
called the Masters on the Spiritual plane. - Master E.K.
perfected beings have their abode in the Himalayas which is
called 'Kalapa' and their group is called the 'Great White
Brotherhood'. They guide the evolution of the beings on the
earth. They consider themselves as elder brothers in evolution
and make the younger brothers workout their evolution properly
and attain Masterhood. Lord Maitreya, Maha Chouhan, Master
Mourya, Master Koot Humi, Master Dwjhal Khul, Master Rackoji
and Master E.K. are some of the Masters.
4. Need of the Present day
world presents a most kaleidoscopic and complex picture. Everywhere
we find divergent ideologies, diabolically opposite political
systems and diversified cultural patterns with no common thought,
purpose or programme. Nations and races with their narrow
parochial tendencies are still waging wars against each other.
Even some religious leaders of the world, forgetting the fundamental
tenets of the Holy Scriptures are trying to glorify their
own, instead of playing the role of a 'torch bearer' to the
ignorant people. More harm than good is done in the name of
religion. Of late we find communal and sectarian violence,
and several atrocities are perpetrated causing huge loss to
the human lives. Self-aggrandisement has become the only objective
of life. No human relations! No human values! No peace, no
harmony - so no happiness!
this critical situation the Wisdom Teaching Temple is doing
its best to resolve the crisis and bring harmony and peace
into the world. It started disseminating the ancient wisdom
which emphasises the 'Fatherhood of God and brotherhood of
man'. It reiterates religious tolerance, mutual cooperation
and peaceful co-existence preached by the elders. Just as
the saying "All rivers finally merge into ocean"
all religions lead to Godhood. So, to develop affinity and
amity and a sense of cooperation among various social groups
The Wisdom Teaching Temple is trying to inculcate group living.
It organises classes to educate and enlighten the people.
Sri Raju is conducting group meditations, discourses and seminars
in various places. He is also performing fire rituals (Homams)
to receive the blessings from the presiding deities of the
planets and various Deva intelligences for the welfare of
humanity and the purification of the environment. He is utilising
all his energies to transform the people into responsible
citizens with a sense of sharing.
