Social activities in Kirpal Sagar


Dear friends,

Today I would like to give some information about social activities in Kirpal Sagar.

Selfless help for needy and ill people are a way of keeping distance to one’s own ego,
if there is no self-pride involved in it.

From heart to heart
Didi

Kirpal Charitable Hospital

Sant Kirpal Singh whole-heartedly wished to provide help to those people who cannot afford medical care. Thus the hospital became the first facility within the Project taking up its function in 1983.

Various treatments are applied, such as allopathic, homeopathic, and ayurvedic therapies.

Poor people receive free medical treatment and medicine at the hospital. Presently the majority of the patients are treated as outpatients.

The accomplishment of the hospital up to 50 beds with departments of general medicine, pediatric, gynecology, obstetrics, ophthalmology, dialysis center and surgery is under construction.

Furthermore, ambulances reach out to remote villages at central gathering points, such as schools, to provide medical care for people who otherwise would not have a chance to see a doctor. From time to time external eye specialists come to Kirpal Sagar to perform eye operations.

A dentist’s practice at the hospital provides dental care for the people of the neighbouring area and also for the students of the Kirpal Sagar Academy.

Students of the future Medical College will perform their practical training within the hospital. An international student exchange is also planned.

Medical Care

From the very beginning of the Kirpal Sagar project, humanitarian help has been provided to the people of the surroundings. Due to the weak infrastructure of this rural area it is very difficult to get medical treatment, especially for the needy.

Medical camps provided help for patients from the near by villages before the “Kirpal Charitable Hospital” eventually took up its function in 1983 as the first facility within the Project.

Meanwhile a large Hospital complex was constructed with departments of general medicine, pediatric, gynecology, obstetrics, ophthalmology, dialysis centre and surgery.

Disadvantaged people obtain free distribution of medicine and medical care irrespective of caste, colour and creed.

Many volunteers from different countries support the project and some medicine firms in Germany and Switzerland are donating medicines.

 

Wheel-chairs for disabled people

Selfless service

To serve the poor and the needy is the true selfless service. If you give food to the hungry, you will never feel hungry. If you give water to the thirsty, you will never feel thirsty. How true is the prayer of the meek and unwanted and accursed is the life of him who ignores, and how great and broat-hearted is the one who works selflessly and gives head and heart to overcome the miseries of others. By holding on the treasures of virtues he becomes actionless. So long as one knows not the miseries of others, he knows not the very secret to overcome his own miseries. Wise persons tell us that it is vain to ask for pleasures and shun from pains. More one does, more one feels happy. This is what Sant Kirpal Singh ever felt.

Help for Self-Help
Job-training

At Surajpur a stitching and sewing school was opened in April 2005, there sewing and needle work courses are offered to enable women to earn their own living. Also, a training for nurses is planned for the future.

Untrained workers can undergo a job-training in the workshops at Kirpal Sagar, which also provide jobs for people with disabilities.

Women empowerment

Since the year 2008 seminaries for women empowerment are organized by the B.ed.College at Kirpal Sagar.

 

Marriages arranged in Kirpal Sagar for needy and poor people

Marriages

In the Indian culture, marriage plays an important role but wedding ceremonies are very expensive. Consequently, Unity of Man helps poor families by arranging the wedding and the furnishings for the couples to give them a good start in their family life. The marriage ceremonies are celebrated according to the religious belief of the couples. The newly married couples receive basic equipments needed for a new household: a fully equipped bedroom, furniture for a living-room, kitchen utensils as well as clothes and watches, everything sponsored by Unity of Man.

Disaster relief

Further help is supplied in case of disasters. During the big flood in 2010, two truckloads with emergency supplies were sent to the city of Leh, Ladakh.

Since Kirpal Sagar has its own water supply, big water tanks are put up in neighbouring towns during a big drought, to supply people passing by with drinking water.

The size and variety of the now existing facilities enable to react flexibly in emergency situations. In the home for the elderly for example orphaned children could be accommodated together with their grandfather.

No one can be said to have been born for himself alone, for none can be an island unto himself. To serve the needy, sick and starving, is also a sideline, more effective than mere preaching.

“Man! Know Thyself” – by Sant Kirpal Singh – Part 5

Preliminary Qualifications for an Aspirant

Just as in any other science, certain preliminary qualifications are required before much progress can be made. Married life, hard work, or a poor environment are no bar. It does not count in your favour that you may hold a high position or possess immense wealth. Neither does membership in a particular faith serve as a recommendation. Wherever he may be, a man must strive for nobility of character, self-control and purity of heart. Purity of heart in thought, word, and deed, is essential. “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” An ethical life is a stepping stone to spirituality, but spirituality, however, is not just ethical living. This we must always bear in mind.

We can divide man’s life into (i) diet, and (ii) his dealings with others. With regard to diet, vegetarianism and abstinence from alcohol and drugs are essential. ”Thou shalt not kill” and “Live and let live” should be our principles in life. The body is the temple of God and is a sacred place. We are not to neglect or abuse it, but should take the best possible care to properly maintain it. All intoxicants are also to be avoided as they make us morbid and of shaky consciousness. With regard to our dealings with others, we should sow the seed of kindness in order to reap its fruit. Love and humility are most necessary. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” ”Love, and all blessing shall be added unto you.” “Love thine enemy, and do good to them that despitefully use you.” God is immanent in every form and whoever loves God, must love God’s creation. To love God is to love all humanity. We should also earn our living by the sweat of our brow and share with others. These are not empty sayings, but very wise and sound advice.

 

Karma (Actions and Deeds)

Each thought, each word and each deed has to be accounted for and compensated for in nature. Every cause has an effect and every action brings about a reaction. Uproot the cause and the effect disappears. This has been done by the Masters who have transcended these laws, but all others are bound by the bonds of Karma, which is the root cause of physical existence and the clever device of nature to maintain this existence. The law of Karma sees to it that we are paid an eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth, in the shape of joy or suffering. It is the goading whip in the hidden hands of nature. The mind contracts Karma, puts a covering on the soul and rules the body through the organs and the senses. Although it is the soul that imparts strength to the mind, the latter has assumed sovereignty and is governing the soul instead. Control of the mind, therefore, is the first step to spirituality. Victory over the mind is victory over the world. Even accomplished yogis and mystics who can transcend to relatively high spiritual realms are not left untouched by the hand of Karma.

 

Saints classify Karmas into three distinct groups, as follows:

  • (i) Sanchit (stored)

Good or bad deeds that stand to our account as earned and contracted in all previous bodies of the order of creation, counting from the day of the first appearance of life on earth. Alas! Man knows nothing about them or their extent.

  • (ii) Prarabdha (Fate or Destiny)

The result and effect of which has brought man into his present body and has to be paid off in this life. The reactions of these Karmas come to us unexpectedly and unperceived and we have no control over them whatsoever. Good or bad, we have to tolerate or bear this Karma laughing or weeping, as it happens to suit us.

  • (iii) Kriyaman (Account of our actions and deeds in the present body)

This is distinct from the above mentioned two groups because here man is free to do exactly as he pleases, within certain limits. Knowingly or unknowingly, deeds committed and coming under this heading bear fruit. The result of some of these we reap before we die and the residue is transferred to the Sanchit storehouse.

Karma is the cause of rebirth and each birth is in turn followed by death. Thus the cycle of enjoyment and suffering, which are concomitants of birth and death, continues. “As you think, so you become,” is an unalterable law of nature, owing to which this universe exists. No amount of integrity or genius can absolve a man so long as there is the slightest trace of Karma. Ignorance of the law is no excuse, and though there may be some concession or relaxation with man-made laws under special circumstances, there is no such allowance made for this in nature’s laws. Prayer, confession and atonement may give temporary mental relief but they cannot overcome Karma. All Karma must be wiped out completely before permanent salvation can be had.

Disturbed by these facts, man seeks solace in deep pious doctrines, or when he comes to know that both good and bad deeds are fetters – one of gold, the other of iron – he turns to renunciation. Different faiths promise relief but he soon finds out that this is only temporary. How then does a Master approach this problem? At the time of Initiation, the Master begins the process of winding up all Karmas of the initiate. He gives him a contact with the sound current, by practicing which the Sanchit account is burnt away. The process is similar to putting a handful of seeds in a pan and placing them on a fire, which causes the seeds to puff up and lose their property of growing again. Then the Kriyaman account is dealt with. After warning his disciples to guard against opening any new account of bad deeds, the Master grants a general clemency in respect of past deeds, part of which the disciple has already settled in this life up to the time of Initiation. He is enjoined to lead a clean life and to weed out all imperfections in him by self-introspection from day to day. The Prarabdha Karma is not touched by Saints because this is the cause of the physical body, which would vanish due to the interference with nature’s laws. Thus a very small amount of Karma now remains to be tolerated in the physical body for the remaining years of the disciple’s life, but even this is softened by the grace of the Master.

The law of grace works wonders and a devotee who, out of loving devotion, reposes all his hopes in the Master, passes off unscathed from the pinching effects of the reactions of past Karmas. In moments of misery, worry and trouble, the Master is our refuge. He acts unperceived at any distance. Just as a mother of a sick child holds the child securely in her lap during an operation so that it does not feel any pain, so too the Master holds us in his loving embrace. Out of their abundance of sympathy, love and kindness, the Saints at times take upon their own shoulders some Karmic sufferings of their disciples through the law of sympathy. There is no court of trial after death for a devoted disciple. The Master is all in all for him.

Why does a Master Saint take all this on Himself? Because He inherits His merciful nature from God above, who commissions Him to personally distribute this treasure of mercy. Thus the Master is honoured like God. Sant Mat has volumes of books written in praise of the Masters, and if just as many books were to be written, it would hardly do justice to the vastness of their love and kindness.

Time casts its heavy shadow over man. He has to work hard to keep pace with the changing times. So deeply is he absorbed in his external needs and desires that he forgets all about contentment, sympathy and love. Entangled and surrounded by the “deadly five” – lust, anger, greed, attachment and vanity – he stumbles and cries out to the Unseen for help. Heaven’s mercy is stirred and as times stiffen, the Almighty extends His help through the Masters more and more lavishly. Such is the case in this Kali Yuga – the Iron Age.

It is indeed very hard to believe that anyone can be above the five passions mentioned above, and that he can enter the Kingdom of Heaven during his lifetime. All mankind is under the control of these five and only a Master can save a man from their clutches. We all demand reliable proof before committing ourselves, and this is given by a Master in the shape of an experience of the life impulse or Naam (the Word) and some inner vision. Contact with a Master is essential. Those who keep aloof and depend on themselves or rely on tradition and priests – equally ignorant as themselves – are deprived of contact with this Power; and as the saying goes, “When the blind leads the blind, both fall into the ditch”.

Indifference, non-acceptance or disbelief will not be to our advantage when nature enforces its universal ordinance – death. Our position will be that of a pigeon who, on seeing a cat approaching, shuts its eyes and believes that the cat cannot then molest it; but in a few seconds the poor bird is in the powerful jaws of the cat. It is then too late to think of escape. So be alert while there is yet time!

Love beautifies – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

Love beautifies everything
and if we learn to love everyone,
all our imperfections can be washed away,
especially by loving kind words.

Unity of Man – Sant Kirpal Singh

The intention of the movement Unity of Man is to inspire man by the ideal set by Sant Kirpal Singh: Be good – Do good – Be one.

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:
This human birth is our chance to realize the great truth of the oneness of life vibrating in the universe – Unity already exists, we only have forgotten it.

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.

Kirpal Sagar – all Religions peacefully together under one roof


Dear friends,

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

Differentiation of a so-called master and a competent Master


Dear friends,

In the Bible we have that 100000 of false prophets are coming and today when looking around,
there are indeed many many so-called master. How to differentiate?

  1. A true Master never claims he is a Master – all thank goes to his Master (then he is not the Doer, but God who works in him – only ego is the doer…)
  2. A true Master is able to give a real first hand experience, the inner light and sound, not the astral light or even artifical sound.
  3. A true Master is not building fenses, but unites all, sees all in One
  4. A true Master respects the free will
  5. A true Master has his own income and is not dependent on others
  6. A true Master has overcome the five thieves in us: Ego, lust, attachment, anger, greed
  7. A true Master is a living example for mankind
  8. A true Master is not gathering thousands and millions of so-called disciples, is not after it
  9. A true Master lives and works not for himself but only as a service to man
  10. A true Master stands up for the needy and helpless people

…and there many more criteria to difference between a so-called master and true Master.

Below please find more information about it.

So thank you for your attention and all the best to you
Didi

So-called masters

What a mire the world is lost in! It doesn’t know a Saint from a charlatan!
O my brother, just because someone has collected a group of followers, does that make him a holy man?
Kabir

It matters what we want to attain

Sant Kirpal Singh describes it as follows: There are Masters and masters, with due deference to all. It is for us to see what we get. Those who are after worldly things or supernatural powers or mind-reading or perhaps healing are really not after God. These are side issues. They get that thing and that is all; but they do not get God.

 

Why is gurudom in disrepute today?

Modern gurus are generally political at heart. They have an axe to grind – to make money and get honour and respect. They are not concerned with the well-being of the people. Their object is to impress the people by their hypocrisy, deceit and falsehood. You may be taken in by these methods.

What did Christ say: “Beware of the false prophets who come in sheep’s clothing but are ravening wolves.” They appear to be very polite. The only criterion can be one who can give you a lift, open the inner eyes so that you see there is light there; not tell you that you’ll get it in due course. What another criterion can there be, tell me? Their propaganda? No! There is no dearth of propaganda anywhere. Money can buy anything. Propaganda can be paid for. But what is the criterion? Can he open the inner eye, remove the darkness from within for you to see? There you say, “God is Light”.
Sant Kirpal Singh

 

“Tricky people create confusion and the confused follow them as their Master and out of confusion they do not leave.
To create confusion in one’s heart is the act of  “so-called poles” (who claim to be a Master or a competent teacher but do not have any competency).
Directly or indirectly they are connected with the negative power. They themselves do not know the consequences of that play and cannot explain it to others. Preacher and followers are under illusion, which they think to be an act of God.”

Miracles, which are a play of the astral powers, affect such people and bring them into the fold of the negative power. Those who enjoy the miraculous powers are devoid of the positive and the higher values of life, (they cannot regain them) till they really find the way to an awakened person.”

 

The miracles shown by those confused people are the outbursts of the astral effects in the physical world and bring them lots of diseases of the mind. Thus the diseases of the mind are due to the astral effects on the mind. In other words mental diseases or the diseases of the mind are astral diseases. Most of the people wish to gain peace of the mind, and they can be easily misled by the negative power and the astral effects upon them.

Very rare are such people who have no desires and whose wishes are fulfilled without having any desire. They are the blessed ones to whom God reveals all they need. All others are thus (due to their wishes) bound in giving and taking, since there is no (possibility of getting) free out of grace without the gracious Master. Thus all such people lose their capital, and the interests are increasing till they have lost the whole capital and also the positive vision.

Its likings in an always finer and more subtle way, and there is no end to this desire. Thus one feels even more happy when one sees something in the astral vision. But he is ignorant and does not know this play which is mere smoke and dust. The miracles which appear due to one’s  wishes, affect one’s  mind and the thoughts remain involved.

The fruit of life is within the belief of the Master

One may outwardly pose like a Master, one may create oneself to be a holy person and start proving a great holy personality with the help of bookish knowledge, but the inner life is not changed. For how long will such acting and posing continue? At last the cat will be out of the bag. For how long will people trust?

One may put a silken cloth on dirt, the bad smell will be emitted from there. Acting and posing have taken the place of true living. Those who act well are taken into good books. When people have bitter experiences for want of their demand, they call names (him who was not able to give them something). They should (complain), since they had given their head and heart. So Master says, “Believe only when you see yourself.” Without seeing, sometimes belief becomes a mystery and to solve it may take one’s whole life.

Master tells us: “Reading, writing, feelings, emotions. drawing inferences are all subject to error, seeing is above all.”

All worldly disputation is fake and futile.

There are two knowledges – one of the heart and the other relating to bookish knowledge. The knowledge of the heart is light and full of intoxication. It is easy to carry either during life or after life. Whereas the bookish knowledge is a burden of many sighs and is difficult to carry.

Saints have respect for the bookish knowledge provided one moves further to attain it in practical form. Otherwise this theoretical knowledge is liable to forgetting. In the scriptures there is written about God, but God is not there. Without the practical knowledge, there can be strains of various degrees, which leads to illusion and delusion.

The “so-called saints” in the world are devoid of that practical knowledge but are well versed with the theoretical aspect of life which they have grasped from the experience of others. They advise others (inspite of) their fake and  suspicious conduct. They preach the truth but they act the other way. There is the difference of day and night between their inner and outer life. It is highest time to rely on the experience of our past competent Masters, which are in accordance to the holy scriptures, and to develop the sincere wish to have those experiences ourselves. And this very same experience we should demand (from a Master). One should create a ruling passion to get the highest gift of life and never remain (contented) in those experiences limited to one’s intellect and mind. Where the world’s philosophies end, there the religion starts. The physical, astral and causal region are the worlds made by physical, astral and causal matter, and they have no importance for us and have nothing to provide. Whatever exists there is not the heritage of the soul, but is rather the food and heritage of mind and intellect. What the soul wants is the longing (for God) and the reunification with Him.

Sarovar – A sacred place of silence and contemplation


Dear blogging friends,

Today something about the sarovar, a sacred place of silence and contemplation in Kirpal Sagar.

Wishing you all a relaxing time.
Didi

 

SAROVAR

 

A sacred place of silence and contemplation

The heart of Kirpal Sagar is the Sarovar, an oval-shaped pool surrounded by four corner buildings. The edifice in the centre of the basin bears models of the four main types of sacred buildings: a gurdawara, a temple, a mosque, and a church.

Their respective shapes symbolically refer to the human body, reminding us that God resides in man. They are found in all religious traditions as symbol of the man-body, which is the ‘true temple of God’.

The relation between man and God is the basis of the unity of mankind – the brotherhood of men under the fatherhood of God. This spiritual link never depends upon outer formations. The Sarovar is a sacred place for contemplation, meditation and prayer. All religions are respected here. Holy Scriptures – such as the Guru Granth Sahib of the Sikhs, the Ramayana of the Hindus, the Bible of the Christians, and the Koran of the Muslims – are placed in the respective corner buildings of the Sarovar. During celebrations these Scriptures are recited accordingly.

Every religion teaches the universal teaching and the universal link among all human beings – the brotherhood of men and the fatherhood of God. Religion is a very smooth pattern and a way to realize one’s self if one rises above the shackles of the religion.

Harbhajan Singh

 

The Sarovar symbolizes the endless ocean of life. Who is able to cross this immense ocean can return to his eternal home. The building amidst the Sarovar has the form of a ship, symbolizing the ‘Ship of Naam’ which can take the soul across the ocean of life. The term ‘Naam or Word’ denotes the God-into-expression power.

Though God resides everywhere and every place is holy where devotion kneels, it is a great chance for man to learn to sit together for the sake of the search for truth, the quest to know oneself and to recognize the underlying unity of existence.

Conversation with God


When we understand that this Oneness is God, real love, life and light, perfectly in Itself, with no ending and beginning, then we understand that mind and ego are illusions. What is ego? Ego is the separation of God, is duality. May we all wake up from our ego-life, from our duality, from I-ness, from I and mine and bow down to God in all humbleness – as we all are still in a deep sleep, in the dream of I and mine…

Poetry by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

 

Old people’s home in Kirpal Sagar


Dear friends

In Kirpal Sagar we have also built an Old People’s Home that possibly is the biggest in whole India giving accomodation for about 1000 elderly people. So the social aspect plays also an import role beside the spiritual aspect in Kirpal Sagar where man can develop as a real man to practise service to man, service to the land and service to one’s own soul.

To you all greetings from my heart
Didi

Old people’s home

The old people’s home was opened in 1994 during the World Conference on Human Unity held in Kirpal Sagar.

Due to the prevailing poverty, many elderly people in India, although they are loved by their families, do not have a pleasant life. The elderly people with their life experience will be able to give their advice and help each other. They have also learned certain professions. If they are able to guide others, they can be of invaluable help for unskilled people working on the project.

It will be possible for them to deal with the meaning of human life, and even in old age they will be able to understand what they have not yet understood. In this way, their lives can come to a peaceful and gentle end.

Those who want to serve selflessly have the opportunity to do so here. You can choose from the various activities of the project to find a job that suits you. In this way, they can find fulfilment in the service to their fellow man and can live in a carefree manner, in an atmosphere that is entirely focused on their physical and spiritual well-being.

Source of Unity, Oneness


 

If we do not longer see us
Separated from woman and men
Cultures and nations
Religions and ideals
Skin-colours and systems
Which are our outer lables
Then we reach the core in us:
That what unites us
Connects us
Makes us ONE
– The human in us

From there we can start
Without barriers between us
From there our mutual love
Can grow in harmony
The source of all humans
– To be humans…

Let us treat as humans
– And not as outer lables…
…Then all outer lables
Differences, so-called separations
Lose their fenses, borders and win
Respect and harmony
Humanity for humanity

Charitable hospital of Kirpal Sagar, India


Dear friends,

Today I would like to present the Charitable Hospital of Kirpal Sagar.
May God bless you all
Didi

 

Kirpal Charitable Hospital

No one can be said to have been born for himself alone, for none can be an island unto himself.
To serve the needy, sick and starving, is also a sideline, more effective than mere preaching.
Sant Kirpal Singh

Since it ­was ­the ­wish of ­Sant Kir­pal ­Singh to ­help ­the ­needy ­with med­i­cal ­care, ­the Kirpal Charitable Hospital ­was ­the ­first fa­cil­i­ty with­in ­the pro­ject ­which ­took up ­its func­tion in 1983.

Poor ­and ­needy peo­ple ­are get­ting ­free med­i­cal treat­ment ­and med­i­cine. Ho­me­o­path­ic, al­lo­path­ic ­and na­tu­ro­path­ic ther­a­pies ­are ap­plied by doc­tors ­from In­dia ­and Ger­ma­ny. Furthermore, ambulances reach out to remote villages at central gathering points, such as schools to provide medical care for people.

From time to time eye specialists from the Indian Government come to Kirpal Sagar to perform eye operations. A dentist’s practice at the hospital provides dental care for the people of the neighbouring area and also for the students of the Kirpal Sagar Academy.

Al­so prep­ar­a­tions ­for a Med­i­cal Col­lege ­are in ­progress. Students of this Medical College will perform their practical training within the hospital.

Library of Kirpal Sagar


Dear friends,

Here some more information about the library of Kirpal Sagar.

I send my greetings from my heart to all of you
Didi

 

 

Library

A person who lives in the world must know who he is, what he needs, where he can get it from, how he can get it and who will give it to him. Reading and analyzing all the Holy Scriptures, one learns something about the higher values of life, that is the meaning of the library.

Dr. Harbhajan Singh

In the library, especially the Holy Scriptures of the religions will be available, as well as biographies of great personalities and philosophical writings. Here you will find exhibitions focusing on spirituality.

Today we are confronted with a multitude of scriptures that have been written in different times and in different languages.

Already in the Upanishades it is said that there is only one truth, although it is described in different ways by the saints and wise men. Ultimately, recognizing it is a matter of inner experience and not of understanding on a purely intellectual level. The writings give valuable clues to this original inner aspect, which is common to all religions, just as we find many similarities in the ethical guidelines.

The external aspect of religion encompasses the doctrines of faith and the external forms of worship, which can be very different. If the inner core falls into oblivion, they gain too much weight. In this lies the danger that through narrow-mindedness and dogmatism religion becomes a bondage for mankind and can even become the cause of war and conflict. The library aims to encourage comparative study of religions and promote an unbiased viewpoint.

One of the exhibitions illustrates the basic unity of all religions through various texts and graphic representations.
