Mentor

(mĕn`tər, –tôr'), in Greek mythology, friend of Odysseus and tutor of Telemachus. On several occasions in the Odyssey, Athena assumes Mentor's form to give advice to Telemachus or Odysseus. His name is proverbial for a faithful and wise adviser.

Mentor

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Amentor is classed as “etheric world intelligence,” a soul-mind living in the next world/another dimension, higher on the evolutionary scale than the human. In Greek legend, Mentor was the son of Alcimus and a friend to Odysseus, who made him guardian of his household. In the play Télémaque, by French writer and mystical theologian François Fénelon (1651–1715), Mentor plays a prominent part, giving the hero good advice. The modern use of the word mentor means adviser or wise counselor.

Mentor was also the name of a spirit guide of Rev. William Stainton Moses. Mentor was said to be Algazzali, or Ghazali, eleventh century Professor of Theology in Baghdad and representative of the Arabian Philosophical School. Mentor’s main duty was to manage the phenomena at the séances of Stainton Moses.
