A '''mantle''' is a symbol of authority, preeminence or responsibility. For instance, you might say that a great painter passes his mantle to his protégé. In the spiritual sense of the word, a mantle is a spiritual office. And with its bestowal, there is passed from Guru to disciple a great sphere of light.
