We are not…


 

 

We are not numbers
We are not a passport
We are not titles
We are not outer emblems
We are not devided
Not in different skin colours
Not in different religions
Not in different ideologies
Not in different politics

We are all human beings
Oneness from heart to heart
Drops of the same Ocean…

Powerful thoughts


 

Thoughts are writing our lives
Filling the white sheet of paper
In the very moment
With the handwriting of our lives

What ist the greatest study of man? Is it theology? I would say no. Is it knowing the law of Blackstone and other great men who came in the past? Even then the answer will be no. Is it the study of works of men like Shakespeare, Miltion, Dickens, Burns? No. Is it occultism or Buddhism or Christianity or Sikhism or any other social religion that we may study? Are such works the greatest aim of man’s study? Again I would say that the answer is no. Why?

If you become conversant with all the scriptures left by the Masters, what do they speak of? “Man, know thyself.” So, knowing man, both his outer and inner aspects, is the greatest study for us. The greatest study of man is man.

Sant Kirpal Singh

Since the beginning of creation, when the first flicker of self-awakening dawned on man, his attention has been more and more concerned with the problem of his own worldly existence and the investigation into the cause and source of all creation. For ages he has probed and queried in vain; but now at last his increasing thirst for knowledge is turning him to study the results achieved by others in the field. Ancient and modern sages asked, “What is that, the knowledge of which makes everything else known?” and in the same breath replied, “Knowledge of the higher self – the true man.” So the supreme knowledge is that which deals both in theory and practice with man’s true nature and his relation to God. It is in fact a natural science without hypothesis, subject neither to change nor time.

In ancient India it was called “Para Vidya” (science of realized truth or science of the beyond), and different denominations sprang up to interpret this knowledge. The term “Apra Vidya,” standing for preparation for achieving the knowledge of Para Vidya, was then introduced. This preparation consists of following an ethical and moral life, and the practice of concentration or meditation (in so many ways), both being indispensable for spiritual development. Man is constantly changing or introducing new names and terminologies to describe this science. The Masters were called “Sant,” and the nature of knowledge “Mat,” thus giving us the term “Sant Mat,” which is at present mostly used to name the Path of the Masters. Other terms, such as Shabd Yoga, Surat Shabd Yoga, Sehaj Yoga, are also used to describe the same science. In the Sanskrit language, the word “Sant” means a Master of the Highest Order; and “Mat” is a confirmed opinion or statement made by an adept after personal experience. The foundation of this science therefore is the result of critical study, minute investigation, and the life-long personal verification of facts based on practical experience of the Self in man. This experience of the Self is something that a competent Master is prepared to give to each individual who approaches him. Sant Mat, therefore, is the teaching, system, and path of the Saints.

The Masters do not attach any importance to names, designations, or the fact that many religious sects, groups and circles have claimed this science as their own and named it after their leaders or founders. They look upon these groups as schools where man – the noblest being in creation – can study with other men as children of one and the same Almighty Father. A Master (also called Sant Satguru) has complete mastery of both theory and practice, and is competent to impart both knowledge and experience to all sincere seekers after truth, without any distinction whatever of colour, caste or creed. Any man or woman, whether rich or poor, young or old, sage or sinner, learned or unlearned, who is able to grasp the theory of the science has a right to acquire this knowledge.

Thankfulness each moment


 

Thankfulness is devotion
Contains humbleness
Knows respect
Accepts
Even pain
Rain in life
Has no conditions
Is no business
Just pure trust

Thankfulness in the heart
To be near to you
To walk with you, Father God
Life of our life

Rising above body-consciousness… – Quote by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

 
A realized man is one who has already solved the mystery of this life. He can give you a demonstration about how to rise above body-consciousness and how to silence the senses, mind, and intellect. When these sensory powers are put to rest, the soul is able to rise up and with the grace of the Guru, she gets united with the Over-Soul. If you recognize yourselves, your entire angle will change as well as your attitude to life, you then will recognize who your lifelong comrade really is and who controls the machine of the body – the same power that controls the entire creation.

Sant Kirpal Singh Ji

 
 

Know yourself – know God!


Everyone has in him, says a Saint, a pearl of priceless value, but as he does not know how to unearth it, he is going about with a beggar’s bowl.

The science of the soul

It is a practical subject and even to call it a religion of soul is a misnomer, for soul has no religion whatsoever. We may, if you like,call it the science of the soul, for it is truly a science, more scientific than all the known sciences of the world, capable of yielding valuable and verifiable results, quite precise and definite.

He who, by the power of the Word, finds himself can never again lose anything in the world.

By contacting the light and life principles, the primordial manifestations of God within the laboratory of the man body, we can virtually draw upon the “bread and water of life”, rise into cosmic awareness and gain immortality. This is the be-all and end-all of all religions, and embedded as we all are in the one Divinity, we ought to represent the noble truth of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. It is the living Word of the living God and has a great potential in it. It has been rightly said: “Man does not live by bread alone but by the Word of God.” And this Word of God is an unwritten law and an unspoken language. He who, by the power of the Word, finds himself can never again lose anything in the world. He who once grasps the human in himself, understands all mankind. It is that knowledge by knowing which everything else becomes known.

Man, know thyself

The only prerequisite for acquiring this spiritual treasure in one’s own soul is self-knowledge. This is why sages and seers in all times and in all climes have in unmis­takable terms laid emphasis on self-analysis. Their clarion call to humanity has al­ways been: Man, know thyself.

You will find all Masters gave that you must know yourself first, as self-knowledge precedes God-knowledge. The old Greeks had to say the same thing, “Gnothi Seauton”, “Know thyself!” The Upanishads say so, “Know thyself” and the Bible says, “Be still, and know that you are that.” So I mean to say there are findings of all Masters in all religions; and they have given out the same parallel thoughts, which are the same everywhere. God is to be realized.

Now the highest aim before us is to know God. All scriptures say so. But to know God, we have to know ourself.

How to know ourself?

By self analysis – by rising above body-consciousness. This physical body which is shaken off at the time of death – if we learn now how to leave the body, we will know we are not this body – we are the indweller of the body. We have got the astral body to work through the astral planes, and the causal body to work through the causal planes. If we just rise above all these, we know that “The father is working through me, and I am in the father.” “I and my father are one.”

You must know

You must know what you are, who you are.
You must know from where you came and how you came.
You must know your purpose of human life.
You must know all you did so far is fake and void.
You must know now you learn how to live and speak through life.
You must know your disease is within and remedy is within.
You must know all your questions are within and remedy is within.
You must know that still you need the help.
You must know your determination is a turning point in your life.
You must know you feel fully embedded with positive and potent thoughts.
