This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s talk “The Subtle Golden Thread of Love” in 2016.
I’d like to briefly define the meaning of Eckankar in Sanskrit, which is the classical language of India and Hinduism, it literally means “the one path.” We’ve taken the word Eckankar, and we define it as “Co-worker with God.” Then we further define it as the Religion of the Light and Sound of God, which tells how to become a Co-worker with God. And this Co-worker with God is an ECK Master.
Now, those of you who are members of ECK know that many of you are Co-workers with the Mahanta, the Inner Master, in training to be Co-workers with God. You’re in training to learn how to give the message of HU to Souls that are ready. This is what being a Co-worker is: training.
I don’t know if I’ve ever said it as clearly as that, but that’s how it is. Then, once you reach a certain level spiritually, you become a Co-worker with God.
