The Science

In the physical body, two main currents are working that control life: one a motor current (breathing or prana) and the other a sensory current, which may also be called attention or surat. The Masters ignore the former so that the breathing is not interfered with and the life process goes on. The sensory current ramifies throughout the entire body, but its main centre lies between and behind the two eyebrows, along with the mind. We have to withdraw the sensory current or spirit to its centre.

 

Initiation

The mind will not allow man to have knowledge of the soul. Its nature is to seek pleasure and its constant fluctuations are difficult to subdue. Attuning one’s self with the internal sound current is the best way to calm the mind and practice concentration. It does not matter what school of thought or society a man may belong to. He has not to convert himself and can remain where he is. There are no hard and fast rules, no rituals, no ceremonies, no pomp and show, no offering of gifts, not even of flowers. All that a disciple has to do is to enter inside and henceforth consider the body as his laboratory. With regard to the theory, he has to understand the following, which is briefly the pith of what he will hear at Satsangs:

1) The Master is not the body, He is the Power functioning through the body and uses it to teach and guide man in much the same way as a spirit uses a medium. Only in bodily form will the disciple be able to recognize his Master in the higher regions and here on earth.

2) The Master is Shabd, Word, Nad, etc., all of which refer to the God-into-expression Power of light and sound principle. By having contact with this Power, man is led back to his true home.

3) For the sake of those who are disillusioned with life, and who yearn for permanent happiness and peace away from the world and its worries, the Word assumes a body to afford them solace. The Bible says, “Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.” Once a disciple contacts this Word (which is done at the time of Initiation by the Master), the audible form of this Word resides within him every moment of the day and night and never leaves him – not even after the end of man’s physical existence on earth. It will go with him and stay with him until he achieves the final goal. The Word is also known as the voice of God or the sound current, and is the Life impulse given by the Master at the time of Initiation. It may be heard as a sound coming from a distance and gradually develops into such sweetness that no music on earth can excel it. It is the Water of Life, the Spring of Immortality, the Elixir of Life, the Nectar of Spirituality, etc., that is spoken of in Holy Books.

4) Man has an inner eye with which he can see within himself all the higher regions when the veil is rent asunder by a competent living Master. In this state he remains perfectly conscious and undergoes amazing experiences. To ascend into the higher regions without a competent Master is fraught with dangers.

 

Simran

The repetition of the Holy Names is given to the disciple at the time of Initiation as a guard against all dangers. It acts also as a password to all spiritual planes, gives strength and sustenance to the body and mind during trouble and afflictions, brings the soul nearer to the Master, is instrumental in achieving concentration, and imparts many other diverse powers. Simran taught by a so-called master is just a bunch of words. But these very words become electrified when charged with the attention and grace of a real Master.

Initiation commences with the explanation and description of inner spiritual regions and the way in which the path is to be pursued. The opening of the inner vision to see the inner regions, with their distinct heavenly lights, together with the contact with the divine link or sound current, constitutes the practical side of Initiation. Daily practice of these, combined with Simran, is meditation. In addition to this, the Master gives instructions on pure and simple living, the need of devoting regular time to the practices, and other words of sound advice. The whole ceremony takes from two to three hours. Diaries of one’s spiritual progress must be kept and the mistakes of old and new disciples are corrected from time to time to insure progress.

Man – like a chameleon


 

What colours do we adopt?

The colour of pride?
Of happiness?
Of love?
Of hate?
Of humbleness?
Of egotism?
Of peace?
Of anger?
Of compassion?
Of sexual desires?
Of unattachment?
Of dependence?
Of greed?
Of independence?
Of darkness?
The colour of light?

We adopt just this colour
According to the reaction of our mind…

However, we are not mind and body
We are a collective consciousness
Drop of the Ocean beyond beginning and end
Connected to each other in this “higher Self”

Colour of life and light

Language of the heart


 

Is understood by everyone
Doesn’t need words
Memories return
Wake up feelings
On the grave
Of burried times
Bridge of past till now
Heart is beating
Communicating
Releasing a smile
Into the presence
Thankfulness is there
Nothing forgotten
Embraced moments
Love alive

Voiceless meeting


 

 

Eyes whisper the language
Of feelings, temperature
Exchange wordlessly
Vibrate and sing

Meeting within the gaze
Approach and leave
Attract, repel each other
Send and receive

Throw light and shadow at each other
Search themselves in contact
To find: cordiality, friendliness
Between action and reaction

Dance in invisible words
In the rhythm of the eyesight
Give themselves away, reflect
Love each other in happiness

High time


 

 

Let us bury the fear of each other
Let us find each other
Let us build trust and confidence
Let love take a seat in our hearts and minds
Let us help each other
Let us overcome differences, all problems
Let us create thoughts of a positive nature
Let us stretch out our hands
Let us build a world of peace and happiness
Let us open our hearts:
Policy of love
Religion of love
Justice of love
Togetherness of love
Oneness of love
Humanity of love

Let our children say:
We have made it…

Message of your eyes


 

 

I look into your eyes
A journey into your being
Passing stars, cosmic dimensions
Through the light of space

Approaching galaxies, black holes
That spin around
Explosion of past and future
Collapse of supernovae

To find your hidden smile
Your happiness radiating
Your soul speaking
Sun of your love
