3 Signs of a Spiritually advanced person - Turn Spiritual, Turnspiritual.in

In this twenty first century we see many people promoting them self as spiritually advanced persons and earn millions by turning into fake babas. Everyday we come across at least one such news regarding some fake babas.

Now the question is How to know whether a person is spiritually advanced or not ?  This may seem a little bit tough, but in fact there are 3 basic signs to find whether a person is spiritually advanced or not. You could observe these 3 basic signs in spiritually advanced persons of any religion. It could be Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity or some other. Here comes those three.

1. They are content always

This is the first sign of a spiritually advanced person. He stays content always. He doesn't dream of anything material. Though he is rich or poor, healthy or unhealthy, good looking or ugly he remains content always.

If you get into the life stories of spiritually advanced people like Lord Buddha, Tulsi Das and other you could find that they always remained content despite their economic and social situations.

2. They hate money

The second sign is that they hate money. Yes, they hate money a lot. Money is one of the two basic things to be renunciated by a person who wish for spiritual growth. This is the big obstacle in spiritual life for anyone. Gold, Cars, Bungalows and other material things also come under money because they are just different physical forms of money.

So, a spiritually advanced person never dreams of money. Ramakrishna Paramahamsa is a spiritually advanced being. Because he hates money and used to feel uncomfortable with it. One day Swami Vivekananda thought of testing this and placed a coin under his bed secretly. And while Ramakrishna tried to sleep on it he felt very uncomfortable and was unable to sleep. When he searched for the reason he found the coin placed by Swami Vivekananda. Such was his hatred for money.
3. They don't have lust
The last and most important is that they don't have lust. This is the second basic thing to be renunciated for spiritual growth.They look all women as their mothers & sisters and all men as their fathers & brothers.

Swami Vivekananda is an example for this. One night when Swami Vivekananda was alone in his room, a young widow came to Swamiji and spoke in lustful manner. But Swamiji, who is spiritually advanced looked upon her as his mother and said the same to her. 

Ramakrishna Paramahamsa is so great that he even looked at Sarada Devi ( Ramakrishna Paramahamsa's wife ) as her mother.

By these 3 signs you can conclude whether a person is spiritually advanced or not.
