The outer world
Is a reflection
Of the inner world…
Loud are our words
In need of audience
Reflection to oneself
Conditioned, self pleasing
Across time and oceans
On empty papers
Fractions are playing
In the timeless ether
Yearning to be one
Words of love
Appear in the air
Veiling its origin
Captured in dreams
At the banks of the mind
Breathing joy and happiness
Ready for the puzzle?
Where love is is not the drop
Where love is is not the ocean
Where love is, is…
A white vest
Does not make innocent
A necklace with a cross
Not yet believers
No natural man
Not yet a philosopher
Gifts do not come
Not with wishes
Not with heat
Senses flowing outwardly
Not necessarily reflect reality
Often the truth can be found
– The other way round…
The intention of the movement Unity of Man is to inspire man by the ideal set by Sant Kirpal Singh:
It invites all to unite in order to find out about the spiritual base of human nature and to promote a spirit of oneness.
The name Unity of Man carries the core message of Sant Kirpal Singh:
Respect for the whole creation and love and tolerance for each human being regardless of colour, creed or nationality are the practical shape of this ideal.
There is one hope for the world, and this hope lies in the spiritual link from man to man and nation to nation. This genuine hope will bring us together.
The problems of the world are not of political, but of spiritual nature, so we have to find the solution on the spiritual level, on the level of consciousness.
The change will begin from man’s heart.

Life is abyss
Between here and now
Depth in knowledge
Birth of answers, questions
Break of being
Drop and ocean likewise
Search of sense of life
How and what
From where and where to
That what is
And that what is not
Observer of being
With eyes from non-being
Multiplicity from void
Woven in each other
Foot in front of the abyss
Spirit without words
No being, no non-being
Time without space
Light without shadows
Space without time
Power seekers want
Dictate and rule over people,
Use all means
To reach their goals
May God bless them
With right understanding
Not prison them in fear
With their intrument of power
In their hands
May they see their own mirror image
To understand what they are doing
And stop abusing power
On the shoulders
Of millions of people
In 2007 there was a World Conference on Unity of Man and it was the first time in mankind’s history that symbols of truth of all religions side by side were revealed in Kirpal Sagar during this unique celebration.
This is an example that all religions can live together in co-existence in harmony – as there is only One God for all – we all are His children. God created man but man created religions. They all are a help for us to think of God, remember Him and it is not meant to fight against each other (one religion against another). Only ego says: this is better, this is higher – we are all in the same school of life, and aren’t we living on the same planet?…
May we all open our hearts
No beginning, no end
In ignorance and knowledge
In light and darkness
In time and space
No here and there
In names breaking apart
In separation and unity
In mind and body
Thoughts and imagination
No Yes, no No
No Day, no Night
Spirit and soul
To express themselves:
The light of eternity
We all are walking
Meeting us in one Ocean
We call: All-consciousness
We all are own universes
In a river of time
We call: death and life
We all dream a piece of being
Unique in our kind
Puzzle of a super-universe
Transformation of old and new
We all are water of life
Dissolving in Oneness
We all are butterflies
Turning into higher dimensions
Becoming one again…
Following text about yearning of the soul can be read here:
“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.
In the coming days I am going to share with you in many smaller parts a very important subject: “Man know thyself!” – by Sant Kirpal Singh
which can be read also here:
May you all be blessed and happy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
Sant Kirpal Singh
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.
All we see the same
Mountain, sky, ocean
Give names what we grasp
With our senses
Dress them in their language
In their own way
Different religions concrete
Their creeds by different names
Countries fear the otherness
Cultures fear diversity
In habits and customs
Religions fear religions
Smooth the waves of thousand names
Are glasses to see same things
In same names and words
Countries, cultures, religions
Should put on those glasses
Then Oneness, not diversity, will appear
Based on humanity…
The sun does not hide behind names…
The Master prays, “O God, You are the highest of the highest. We are wearing physical bodies, astral bodies, causal bodies, supercausal (bodies). We are on the earth, You are in the sky. How can we meet You, unless we rise up to that level?” You see? “Is there any remedy for that?” They say, “How to come up to that level where You are, nearer to You?” That (remedy) is the company of the Saints, when you become receptive.
Masters tell us in detail everything that is given in the scriptures. To have the right interpretation thereof, you must have somebody who has experienced that (mentioned in the scriptures). I have just been explaining to you one pillar (Satsang) of the three pillars which are most important in the Surat Shabd Yoga.
They (the Masters) give you a contact with Sat Naam within you, and in the company of the “Word made flesh” you have a boost. All other Masters also say the same thing, in their own languages, of course: “To come into contact with the God-into-expression-Power is coming in contact with the water of life, the nectar of life. That is the bread of life.” That comes from where? From heaven. “Whosoever partaketh of it shall have everlasting life.” This (inner) contact can be given by whom? By Him who is already “Word made flesh” – no intellectual can give you that. Of course, if he who is the mouthpiece of that Godpower is a learned man, he will tell you these things, giving so many instances from literature and elsewhere. Even if he does not have any degrees of outward education, He can give you a contact. You can have that by radiation by coming near in the field of action or the area. That’s the only difference.
So man-body is the highest in all creation. In this man-body, the ultimate goal is to have a beatific vision of God. That’s all – before we die!
Amongst the Hindus, there is a custom that when a man is just ready to die, people light a candle and put it on the palm of the dying man and tell him to look into the flame of this candle. The mantra which they read out means, “This light will accompany you hereafter.” The light and the palm of the dying man remain here. What is (the value of) that candle which is outward? “Take heed that the light which is within you is not darkness”, that’s all.
Do you now see the beauty of the Surat Shabd Yoga you have got? No other yoga can vie with it; they have their own scope. That’s right.
What is to be done? When you have got it (the inner contact), enjoy it. Make it a point, you see. That is the most important and most personal question, private work that you have got. We do not find time for that, and for worldly things, which will not accompany us, we put in (time) from morning till night. Then we come and say we have got not time to attend to that (spiritual practices). At least, in that case, if you have got “no time”, then surely you will have time to repent, to cry, to shed tears, at a time when nothing can be done.
So that is why all Masters enjoin, “Catch the time by the forelock. Don’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time.”
That does not affect your (outer) labels ethically. You are a man, you see; man-body is the temple of God: you are simply to invert (your attention). How to invert? That demonstration is given by a Master; follow it accurately! Every Saint has his past and every sinner a future. So, please, “Time and tide wait for no man.” You know? “Time and tide wait for no man.” Time is passing away. Make the best use of the time at your disposal. What has passed is past; what will come in the future, we will see. Live in the living present. Let no second pass, no minute pass without it (inner remembrance).
This (inversion of attention) is what the Masters want from those who come to them, who are sent by God to them, of course. “It is He who sends and it is He in Him (the Master) who gives, not the son of man.” We respect that son of man (living human pole) through whom this thing (inner contact) is given and in whom He (God) is manifest. Wherever such Masters put their feet, those become the places of pilgrimage. He is the “moving (place of) pilgrimage” on earth. Wherever He sits, that becomes a place of pilgrimage. Make the best use of the radiation you receive in the company of a Saint. Whatever you have got, put more time into it by regular practices. Snatch away as much time as you can for that purpose, because that is your and your only work. That will help you here and hereafter – in both the worlds. All other things will leave you, but the Word and the Word made flesh will never leave you, not even after death. He will be extending all feasible help and protection to you wherever you are, near and far, that makes no difference. All Masters, all scriptures say these things.
If there was trust among peoples
If there was respect among them
If there was tolerance between religions
If there was honesty in every heart
If there was compassion for those who suffer
If there was understanding among leaders
If there was fair sharing in the world
If there was no poor and rich people
If there was no violence any longer in the heads
If there was an ideal of high values within the society
If there was help and service to man
If there was spiritual development in our lives
We would not see weapons in the world
We would meet us with love and harmony
We would no longer use our earth as a trashbin
We would turn our ego into sunshine
We would understand the meaning of oneness:
We all sit in the same boat
We all are one as brothers and sisters
May each of us take this responsibility
For a better and safer world
May this dream come true…
Easy it is to critisize
But difficult it is
To think oneself into situations
Not belonging to us
We do not live
Has to take
We do not live
The life of anyone
With his/her background
Instead ignore reasons
So no right we have
To condemn or judge
Or make us only better
With hidden motives?
In their minds
Prevails an ice-cold principle:
“To get the maxium
For a minimum”
Blindly they are oriented
Towards money and power
While tears flowing unseen
From a forgotten heart
The carusell of speculation
Turns faster and faster
Squeezing blood and life
From more and more people
Outwardly they may be rich
But inwardly they are very poor
After their business
If we want a change in the world
We have to begin with ourselves
And listen to our heart
The music of harmony
