Miracles

Master Saints never show any miracles to a disciple except in rare cases due to special circumstances. Miracles are in accordance with the laws of nature but are nevertheless terrible entangling webs, detrimental to the highest ideals of man in his approach to Almighty God. It is a subject that an ordinary man would not care to study, for the simple reason that it requires immense self-control and training of the mind, with restrictions that he would not like to tolerate or pursue. The miraculous powers achieved after a lengthy period of time are instrumental in doing both good and harm, and as they are utilized more for harm than anything else, they are termed as a disease by all truly spiritual persons. The Masters are in possession of Supreme Power, but their mission is sacred. A disciple whose inner vision has been opened sees any number of miracles at each step. To hesitate to believe in a Master without seeing miracles is as foolish as a refusal to believe that a certain person is a multi-millionaire unless he shows us his money. He may have all his money deposited in a bank and wishes to spend it in the wy that he chooses, without caring for public applause or approval. Out of an audience of several thousands watching a magician perform his tricks, only a very small number would thereby be induced to learn the art. Those who are anxious to see miracles are not true seekers.

 

General

Today the world is crying out for a better understanding, for peace and freedom from conflict. This Science of self-analysis that reveals the brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God is the remedy which can reconstruct a healthy culture, and propagate harmony between man and man. He who claims to love the invisible God but has no regard or love for his visible fellow man is lost indeed. To love, revere and feel grateful to our fellow man is to love and revere God. So too, the love for the visible Master, our closest connecting link with God, is in reality love for the Supreme Father. We should therefore try to measure the depth of God’s mercy and grace through a Master Saint, who is God’s visible representative. It has spirituality as its end and is not idolatry. The atmosphere in which such a genuine Master moves is charged with currents of peace and love which affect those who come into contact with Him. Even letters written by or on behalf of Him carry currents of ecstasy that influence the innermost recesses of the heart.

Guru precedes God. Such a person was Master Hazur Baba Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj, who remained with His disciples for a great number of years and now, even after He has left the body, still watches over His loved ones and also those who contacted Him once with love and sincerity in their hearts. Love knows no law, and He is still appearing in His Radiant Form, even on lower spiritual planes, for their sake. Not one, but hundreds can testify to what ignorant people would call an illusion. On the physical plane, He is still showering His blessings through His medium at Ruhani Satsang,5 Sawan Ashram, who now in turn guides men in all spiritual matters. One bulb is fused and is replaced by another. The same Power works and the same light now shines from a new bulb. All who approach the Master get positive experiences. Anybody who wishes to avail himself of such a golden opportunity has only to contact the Master and his wishes will be fulfilled, his heart will overflow with happiness, and his weary shoulders will be relieved of their burden of cares and worries.

Note: Ruhani Satsang was the organisation founded by Sant Kirpal Singh at the request of His Master Baba Sawan Singh with its headquarters in Sawan Ashram in Delhi where Sant Kirpal Singh lived and worked.

 

Epilogue

“Love knows no law” – these words of Sant Kirpal Singh describe the special way the Almighty Godpower is working. And He speaks with overflowing love in the following words as well: “In times of calamity, the Father Himself comes to rescue of His children.”

This brochure repeatedly tells of a “living Master“, whom one has to meet while he lives in this world. This refers to the law of the Iron Age, in which it was destined by the Highest Power that for man’s guidance and spiritual development always one Master succeeded another.

But nowadays, in this special time of change from the Iron to the Golden Age, Sant Kirpal Singh came with the competency of the Almighty Power, which works directly and independently. This Power is not bound to the physical body, but is capable of continuing the work even after having left the body. If this is the case, the outer work of a physical Master is not needed.

With that said Sant Kirpal Singh gave special commandments for His further Mission to His devoted disciples Dr. Harbhajan Singh and his wife, Biji Surinder Kaur. He guaranteed that for the time coming He Himself will be responsible for the inner work and conscious people or Gurmukhs (developed disciples) will take on the task to explain the theory and to give a practical example for a spiritual life.

It is still on Him alone to link the soul with the Godpower, to give inner guidance and to wind up the karma of the disciples. Sant Kirpal Singh Himself in the book “Godman” (Chapter 4, page 38) explained: “After His passing away one may derive benefit form the Satsang conducted by a Gurmukh who is carrying on the duties of Guru, and may consult him in case he has some difficulty. It is, however, of the utmost importance that the Master is not to be changed on any account. Loyalty to the Master who has initiated the spirit and whom the spirit has pledged his troth demands the recognition that the Master is competent to impart further guidance and instructions, even when He is working on the spiritual plane after having left the physical world.”

Sant Kirpal Singh commissioned His Gurmukhs Dr. Harbhajan Singh and Biji Surinder Kaur to carry on His Mission and to build up Kirpal Sagar. The project Kirpal Sagar, located in the north of India, is a place open to all people irrespective of caste, color, creed or nationality. The aim of its manifold activities is to form a foundation for the integral development of man – physically, socially, ethically and spiritually – and to enable him to attain Selfknowledge and God-knowledge. Sant Kirpal Singh summed up the basic principles in six words as a guide-line for everybody: “BE GOOD – DO GOOD – BE ONE”

 

Further information about the project Kirpal Sagar and the activities of Unity of Man is available on http://www.kirpal-sagar.org.

Before Sant Kirpal Singh left His body, He wrote in His last circular letter, dated 15 May 1974:
“The campaign of Unity of Man will neither be tagged with Ruhani Satsang nor with any other similar organization. The enthusiasm of its admirers will be the real force working behind the campaign.”

He based the movement Unity of Man on practical spirituality, in which everyone is striving to develop themselves constantly, to serve God in every human being and to work for the spreading of Sant Kirpal Singh’s Mission all over the world. Dr. Harbhajan Singh told concerning this, “The more you live for others, and serve them, the more you are also developed”.
Whoever searches for Self-knowledge and God-knowledge will find the valuable treasure of spiritual knowledge in this brochure and according to the law of demand and supply which works at every time it is possible today as well to attain what Sant Kirpal Singh is speaking of therein.

Mind outside – Soul inside


 

 

The soul is a silent observer
While our mind fishes in outward appearances
Turning its attention outwardly

When the mind turns inwardly
It shuts itself off
And the soul shows up…

Yearning of the soul


 


Kirpal Sagar

 

Following text about yearning of the soul can be read here:

http://spirituality.unity-of-man.org/en/spirituality/god-spirit-and-soul/59-yearning-of-the-soul.html

 

 

Yearning of the soul

“O God, Your attention reaches far and wide, everywhere.
Millions of souls are longing for Your blessing – they are standing at Your door to get Your Naam.
But You give Naam only to those who love God from the core of their heart.”

All the disciple needs he can get just by surrendering fully at the feet of the Master. When the disciple surrenders to Him, Master is happy, for He sees: “My child who was sent into the world with many promises and got lost in the fair of the world, has now returned to me.” Then, full of joy, the Masterpower takes the child to the place where His work is done so that the child may get further lessons. That is called Satsang. Through His word and blessing He dyes the soul in His own colour so that it may never leave Him again, for Master wants to keep His child close to Him. The soul then knows, “My Father is highest in the whole universe, no one is equal to Him!”

 

When the soul gets these blessings, the disciple prays, “O Master, take away from me lust, anger, greed, attachment, and ego and give me the real life. I want to live at Your feet forever!” Inside, reaching at the gate to His throne, the soul recognizes Master’s abode as the treasure of Naam. Seeing Him distributing this treasure, the soul says, “Master generously distributes this unique treasure of Naam. I need this blessing from Him to cross the ocean of life.”

Weeping the soul begs, “O Master, do not leave me! If You are with me, all troubles and sorrows are gone and all attachments to the world are cut off. Under Your shelter and protection alone I can live, otherwise I am in the grip of the five thieves. When You are with me, the five thieves run away. Keep my face always turned to You! You have granted me Your help again and again, so I can overcome all those problems.” The soul further cries, “How great a burden You took on Your shoulders, how great the power You give us to cross the barriers! Without Your help we could hardly ever reach Your heart. Grant me the grace to sit under the shade of that tree (of Your grace) or plant this tree in front of my house. Branches and leaves of this tree should be made of truth, so that I may relish its fruits.” I am crying before You on behalf of myself, beseeching You not to send me into the wheel of life again.” A doctor can only be called who knows about the patient’s suffering. The soul says, “Take away from me lust, anger, greed, attachment, and ego, and give me the knowledge of Brahm (which cannot be gained unless one lives a pure life) and Bhakti (devotion to the Master). All that lies in Your hand.”

The soul knows that if the disciple has attained this knowledge and gets Master’s attention, even the gods and goddesses bow down before him. The soul says, “O God, Your attention reaches far and wide, everywhere. Millions of souls are longing for Your blessing – they are standing at Your door to get Your Naam. But You give Naam only to those who love God from the core of their heart.

 

 

 

One in the One


 

 

I feel my heart overflowing
With love for the whole creation
Humility at the feet of the Creator
His light flowing in me

I feel this Ocean inside me
Like waves of pure light
Hugging the whole being
Moving my heart to tears

I feel oneness with everything
Heart to heart connection
Dawn to dusk, day to night
Perfect happiness

I feel the current of bliss
That flows through me
A dancing light
On the waves of my being

Everything sounds, everything shakes
Shines like millions of suns
Sound of Eternity
One in the One

Touching Love


 

 

Just as the sun rises
Our hearts should rise up
With warming rays for everyone
A silent awakening
In the morning dew of a lush meadow

Let’s hug
With golden rays
In the early morning
Touching our hearts
Exchanging the light of love

Beyond Enmity


 

 

An enemy can only exist
Under equal terms
Must have a counter-part
However, he who has risen above hostility
Is one with the One
Has only love for all…
