The Tantric discourse of human divinity significantly increased the power of the leaders of religious communities – the gurus and the acaryas. However the discourse had much wider implications. In the belligerent medieval society, where religion and social power became one, leaders like the king and the guru actually became living gods.
Everybody lived in a divine realm. Social hierarchies, inequalities, economic exploitation and power were divine manifestations that should be worshipped rather than resisted. This implied a strengthening of the local religious Tantric leader, the guru. There had always been teachers and gurus in India, but now they became something special. They were divine representations on earth, whom people and students worshipped.
