Treasure of Naam or Word


 

 

My dear friends,

Most of us know how the Bible begins: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God…” – it is not just a word, but it is the God into expression power in the Word. Please, read what Sant Kirpal Singh has to say in this connection:

The treasure of Naam

The Absolute God is Wordless, Imageless and Nameless. When it came into being, it was called Word or Naam.

“Naam” is nothing more nor less than Godhood of God; one may call it what one may like – the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, etc. It is the primal manifestation of God, responsible for the entire creation. It is the primeval form of God.

St. John speaks of it thus: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of man. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehendeth it not.”

In these memorable words, St. John has tried to give us some idea of the marvellous nature of the Word or Naam, as it is also called. It combines in it the triple principle of Creation, Sustenance and Destruction-the Trimurti of the Hindu mythology of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva-the Creator, the Preserver and the Destroyer respectively, all the three deriving their motor power from Godhood or God-in-action, Naam or Word.

Hazrat Moieen-ud-Din Chishti, in this context, says, Name and the Named are but one, Light of Name witnesseth His glory. All that is, is of and from Naam, for it pervades everywhere. It is the life principle of the entire creation. He in whom this Word or Naam becomes personified is called a saint for it is said that, “Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” Such a one has reached the summum bonum of life and gained the El Dorado of human existence. For him there is nothing more to wish for and aspire for.

 

Naam: What it is

All scriptures speak of Naam but have not been able to say adequately what it is. It is impossible to define and delineate it in words. It may be described as “Life-impulse” or “Conscious-principle.” When it begins to vibrate, it produces melodious sound, which is termed Naam or Shabd. This Sound Current proceeding from the Deep Silence of the Formless Kutasth is responsible for all forms and colors, visible and invisible to the naked eye. All life hangs on this Life-principle. No life can exist without Naam. The Sound-principle is all-pervading; it may or may not be felt, yet it is reverberating from top to toe. It is the Kernel and the Essence and at once both the material and efficient Cause of the endless universes in which this physical earth is but a speck.
0 Pipa! This universal vibration is the Primal Causeless Cause, but can be apprehended only through a Master-soul.

In all religions God is spoken of as the Sound-manifest or Life Principle. It is a current, live and conscious, and has in it the germs of creation. It is because of this link between the Creator and the creation that the spirit or soul of a person can cross over the physical body and traverse the spiritual regions to reach the True Home of our Father-Sach Khand.

 

Greatness of Naam and its needs

The access to spiritual regions cannot be gained except with the wings of Naam.

A Persian poet says,
It behooves thee to fly to the higher realms and that thou canst do with the wings of Naam.

Again, If thou wishest union with Truth, thou must get united with Naam (i.e., Word or the manifest form of Truth unmanifested) for therein lies the only possible union with Truth.

 

All Saints spoke about Naam, Shabd or Word

The Path of the Naam is the most ancient and the most natural. It is in consonance with the Divine Law. In all the four ages, it had acted as a saving lifeline for the people.

During the last five hundred years, Saints like Kabir Sahib, Guru Nanak and the other nine Sikh Gurus, Dadu Sahib, Paltu Sahib, Tulsi Sahib, Soami Shiv Dayal Singh, Baba Jaimal Singh and Baba Sawan Singh have been the great exponents of this Path.

The Muslim divines have been practising and preaching the Path of Kalma for fourteen hundred years or more. The Prophet Moham­med, Shamas Tabrez, Maulana Rumi, Hafiz Sahib, Moeen-ud-Din-Chisti, and others taught this very thing.

Again, two thousand years ago, John, the Baptist, and Christ laid down the Path of the Word or Logos. Zoroaster long before preached of Sarosha or the Sound Current in Persia. Lord Buddha, twenty-five hundred years ago, practised this very sadhna (spiritual practice).

Four thousand years back, we find that in Egypt it was known as the “Path of Aton” which was preached by King Echnaton. In the Upanishads we find references to Udgit or the Harmony of the Beyond. Lord Krishna, long before, was fully conver­sant with this science. In the Vedas, the oldest scriptures of the world, we read in Wak Devi Sikat of Naad or music and Sruti or that which is heard. Kabir Sahib tells us that He came in all the four Yugas, and every time He preached of Naam or Word.

Prayer for 2020


prayer-for-whole-mankind

 

May we all be on the road of light
The path of truth,
The way of spirituality

To see our own face
In the reflection
Of the water of life

May we be all a light beam
Back to the source
The sun of our heart…

May we be all brothers and sisters
In this great sun living in us
In exchange of love and understanding

To bring a change in this world
Not governed by mind and ego
To shine as bright stars

Love is the answer…

Touching truth


 

 

Mind loves to play
Enters worn out pathes
Seeks happiness
In his own house (ego)

Stays away from the truth
Loves deceptions and tricks
Kidnaps and seduces
Head and heart

Remains anchored
In the game of time performed
Directs and deceives
Keeps one “comfortable”

Any excuse is welcome
If only soul is controlled
Living fields of wishes ploughed
Inside journey prevented

“Tomorrow, tomorrow I meet the truth!”
Mind speaks to itself again and again
Fearing the truth
To be robbed, to be changed…

… To lose control… to lose old habits…

Who we are


 

 

My life is a grain of sand
Within the life of all life
It is connected to everything

I look into the depths of life
Into the cosmos of all things
Movement of being, non-being

So everything is in me:
Consciousness, my Higher Self
That also is in everyone

Connected to this Higher Self
Is each and every-one of us
Universal connection, togetherness

God is called this Higher Self
We are looking for but cannot find
For He is already within us…

Wisdom lost in knowledge


 

 
 

Rituals and Rites (excerpts from the Library of Kirpal Sagar)


 
 

 
 

Broken Mirror


 

 

Why do we separate us
In colours, cultures, and religions?

Are we aliens to each other
Or are we humans to each other?

Do we live on different planets
Breathe different air?

Are we not born the same way?
Do not feel the same way: hot and cold?

Take a bath under different suns
Do not all live in a night and day rhythm?

We do everything to be apart
However, we should do everything to be one…

One mankind
One religion – of love
One Father – for all
One planet
In oneness united…

The world: A Cabinet of mirrors


 

 

Our thoughts, deeds, and words
Are a ping-pong game
Between two worlds:
Subject and object
Or a reflection
Between two mirrors…

We are a reflection of the mirror
Behind a hidden world…

Shadow of a light behind…

True religion is universal love and remembrance of God


 

 
 

Egoism has a face


 

 

There are people with extinct light
In their eyes and hearts
They embody greed and selfishness
Are the closest to themselves
Walk over corpses for an advantage
They order, they command
See others as a means to their purpose
Seek for power and influence
Want to control, determine
Have a heart made of stone
Are possessed by their possessions
Watch lurking over their “achieved things “

They don’t know how poor they are…

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

Policy versus Spirituality


 

 

Policy is business
The bargaining of political games
A play of the mind

Spirituality is humanity
A finding of oneself
A knowing of oneself

Policy: In the shadow of the mind
Spirituality: In the light of the soul

Only when honestly knowing ourselves
We are able to know others
Able to lead others with humanity
Without the games of the cunning mind…

Toughest Test


 

 

The toughest test is,
To say goodbye to old habits
Which went into our flesh and blood…

From which we even think
They are good for us…

Walls in the mind


 

 

Words are separating fences
Drawing lines in the mind
Visable islands
Within the endless emptiness
Light and Sound
Of a timeless Ocean
That has no words…
