Thank you for your attention.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 
 


Baba Sawan Singh

 
 

Sant Kirpal Singh reports from His own life:
 
I used to pray: “Oh God, I’m convinced that without one who knows You, nobody can reach You.” It is a practical matter of self-analysis. God cannot be known by the outgoing faculties, by the vital airs or by the intellect. It is a matter of seeing: whoever sees can make you see. “I know there’s a need – definitely: all scriptures say so. I’m quite convinced, but where am I to go? Suppose I go to somebody who has not met You – what will be my fate?” I used to pray like that. “If You could reveal Yourself to the old Saints” – sometimes there are stories like that – “why can’t You do it in my case? I am convinced, I’ve great regard for that need, but there are so many Masters – whom shall I select?” With this, my Master (Baba Sawan Singh) began to appear to me when I sat in meditation or when I was doing something. I thought perhaps it was Guru Nanak. He used to talk to me. In those days there was the First Great War, and my brother was on the Indian front along the Persian side. I used to traverse along with Him and went to those places, here, there and everywhere.
The Guru appears when the disciple is ready.
 
I was very fond of rivers, ponds, water. Even in my young life, I used to go and sit by the waterside or some river, the whole night through, in a calm and quiet place. The running water helps a little to concentrate. So this went on for some time. In the meantime, I was first at Peshawar, and then I was transferred to Nowshera station: a river runs by there. I used to sit by that riverside for hours. Then I came to Jhelum’s side. That is also by the riverside, and I sat there for hours on end. I was very fond of swimming, too. (Just enter the river: if you’re not afraid, nothing will happen; it’s only fear that kills you. If you simply shake your foot a little or move your hands a little, you won’t drown.)
 
In the meantime I was transferred to Lahore: that was also by the riverside. I passed my days there. There was also the river Beas: “Let me have a look at that!” One Sunday morning I left by train and detrained at Beas station. There was an old man there; he was the station master. I asked him which side the river flows. He was (Bua Das), a devotee of the Master: “Do you want to see the Master?” – “Does a Master live here?” – “Yes!” “Where?” – “On the riverside.” I told him, “I have two things now. I’ll enjoy the river scenery and also see the Master at the same time.” Then he directed me there. Master was sitting upstairs; He was taking His meal inside. I went out and sat outside. After half an hour or so, He came out. I was wonder-struck: He was the same man who had been appearing to me for seven years before, from 1917 to 1924. I paid homage to Him: “Why so late?” He said, “That was the most opportune time that you are to come.”
 
So this is how I met the Master. “The Guru appears when the chela (disciple) is ready” – even to the most skeptical mind. Perhaps none of you has been so skeptical as I was; I was afraid, you see, lest I go to somebody who had not met God; and my life would be spoiled.
 
When I went to Him, then – once or twice, every Sunday I used to go – He looked after me like a father looks after his son coming: “All right, arrange this room, bring this bedding”, this and that thing. I requested, “Well, Master, don’t You worry, I’m here, at Your feet.” – “All right, now, you’ll have to look after this Dera (Ashram); go on with it. Those who come, you’ll look after them.” These were the words He expressed, the very first time.
 
The next time there was initiation – this was early February – and all were sitting in initiation. Master said, “You sit inside.” I will come. He gave initiation there; I was inside, sitting in His room. This is how I was initiated! I was waiting for Him; perhaps He will call me. I was sitting inside. Then He returned. I asked Him, “Will you kindly initiate me?” – “Oh yes, surely.” What the mystery of life is – what is a man, what is a soul – was solved in little or no time.
 
A qualification of a Master is given as one who can give you some experience. Some say, “All right, go here; here are maps to show you the way; go by this road, or turn right, then left; this or that.” Sometimes you have to hunt for hours, and you do not find the way. But a Master is one who gives you some experience to start with, who can appear and remove the dark veil by giving a sitting; and you can testify that it is so. You are not to wait until after death or until after many years. He does not tell you, “All right, go on; you’ll have it in due course.” You’ll find that it is so with most of the teachers: “All right, do some regular meditation; some reaction from the past might help you.” But the competency of the Master lies in the fact that He is able and competent to give experience to the learned or the unlearned, to a man off the street.
 
It so happened that there was some controversy when our Master became a Master – I mean, took up the role of the Master. (He was a Master, but He took up the role of the Master.) When others asked, “Why, how can you become a Master?” He was very polite and very humble. He never liked to get into a controversy. After they kept pushing the point, He said, “All right. Catch some five or six people off the street, make them sit, and give them some experience. I will also catch some, and then we’ll see who can carry it out!” That’s all: to give the ultimate goal and what to do to reach it. So this is how I met my Master.
 
Generally, when people ask me, “What is Your date of birth?” I tell them, “I have three birthdays: first when I was born in the flesh; second when I met Him inside seven years before; and third when I met Him physically.”
 
These are the gifts of God. I was very afraid because generally, you’ll find that Masters simply tell you, “Go on reading scriptures.” That is right; that is the first step. But you cannot have the right import of the scriptures unless you meet somebody who has that experience: he alone is able to give you an experience, to give you the right understanding and the right import of the scriptures. Because, what are the scriptures? They are the fine records of the experiences that the Masters had in their lives. Then, perform one ritual or the other; that’s all right for the preparation of the ground. But seeing is something else: it only arises when you analyse yourself when you rise above body-consciousness and you testify that there is Light. A Master is also defined as one who can make the Music of the Spheres audible. Who can give you Light and Music of the Spheres? What are these two? These are the two aspects of the God-into-expression Power. God has no equal, no father, no mother – nothing of the sort. Only He who is Word personified can give you the experience of that Power, the very first day. Even the blind man has that inner eye, called the single eye. Scriptures tell us, “If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light … If you shut the doors of the temple of the body, you’ll see the light of heaven.” That is called the third eye or shiv netra; there are so many names for it. These are the basic teachings that give you the ultimate contact with that reality. Philosophies deal with theories. This is what is called mysticism: it gives you contact with reality – that reality which came into expression. Psychology works at the level of the intellect. This does not work at the level of the intellect; it works only when you are intellectually stilled. In psychology and philosophy, you have two: a subject and an object. And in mysticism, there is no duality: you have direct contact with the God-into-expression Power. The more you are unattached from outside, the more you have an ethical way of living, the more you come in contact with that Power; and, like an electric lift, it will take you to the place from where it emanated.
 
God came into expression from the wordless state as Light and Sound: “The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.” That Power which manifests in some human pole is called the God-power or the Master-power or the Gurupower: Christ lived before Jesus, mind that, and lives forever. This is what St. John said. But we only ruminate over the scriptures, we don’t follow what is what. Once a man starts with the wrong thing, others follow him blindly. How many are there who can give you a first-hand experience? They may say, “All right, go on meditating,” and some may get an experience, but others may not. This is where the competency lies: because of the God in Him, not the son of man.
 
Someone asked our Master, “How should we address you?” He said, “Take me as your brother, as your father, as your friend, as your teacher. Just act up to what I say. When you rise above the body and you find Him inside, too, and there He is also competent to guide you, then you will call me by any name you like.”
 
 

Climbing the inner mountain


 

 

During life, there is a meeting
Of people coming and going
Some walk with you
Some stay with you

Life-pathes fork, separate
Newcomers enter your way
Unite thoughts and words
Are with you

Own path loses friends
Breaks into loneliness
And from loneliness
Into Oneness

Opens a new gate
The door of being
Al(-)one and All One
Shutting the door of separation

We enter the world with tears
But we may leave it with a smile…

God: Many names and no names


 

 

A river flowing
Through many countries
Has many names

God is like a flowing river…

You get out what you put in


   
   

Own deeds, good or bad
Coming back to us
As a reflection beyond time and space

Fate repays with the same coin…

Hope for a change


 

 

When we deeply regret our sins with our tears
It is Christ who washes them away

He provides us a new beginning
Gives us strength and courage

His biblical Word: resonates like an echo
“From now on sin no more…”

Old dresses are putt off
Replaced by clean clothes

The lie changes to the truth
The dirt gradually to cleanliness

A process of consciousness
Distinction between right and wrong

In everyday life, we should sieve:
Separating the bad from the good

How much dirt is there still left
That we do not see yet…?

Consciousness is:
To recognize oneself

To make us visible
What and how we really are

“Every saint has his past
And every sinner his future…”

The purpose of meditation


 

 

Blessed are those who meditate for the love of God.

Nowadays, meditation is done like breakfast is taken. Some people meditate to fulfill their wishes, some meditate for peace of mind. Some people meditate to gain riches in the world, name, and fame. Some people do it only for the building of the body, to get rid of the diseases. Some people make a show of their meditation, there are mesmerism, spiritism, spiritualism, there are hundreds of branches out of it and they have nothing to do with spirituality, on the contrary, they are dangerous traps for the soul. Some meditate to acquire supernatural powers, some meditate to influence others, and some people meditate for salvation. With these aims, however, one stays on the level of mind and cannot reach the plane of consciousness. There are thousand ways of meditation, which will not take us anywhere.

Better not to meditate than to meditate in the wrong way

To meditate only with the help of mind, to meditate to fulfill wishes, is a death trap for the soul. The astral plane is fully controlled by the negative power and is open for everybody. The experiences given by the self-styled “masters” are merely astral experiences. If you want to go to the astral plane, you do not even need a master, because the mind itself will take you there. In any way you will come there into the clutch of the negative power, you will lose your free will, your consciousness, and discrimination power, and you will be further bound in the net of transmigration.

So it is of great importance to find out what is that meditation, which will transcend us above the body consciousness and take us back to home eternal. Which is that meditation, which provides us the Water of Life and Bread of Life?

The subject meditation is directly connected with the purpose of human life, the development of the consciousness – the soul or spirit in man. The highest aim of life is self-realization and God-realization. But who meditates out of yearning and love for God?

To meditate without competent guidance, to perform yoga practices and to go into the chakras and use the Kundalini-power means to get lost in the astral and causal plane

Those who stress at the place between and behind the eyebrows and try to meditate by themselves, or practice various yogas, go into the chakras and enter into the astral plane. The chakras are controlled by astral forces that reveal themselves as gods and goddesses or angles. They are not conscious and of no help to man since they do not know the Father. They are of no use. They can only fulfil your wishes.

Many people go down into the body, their Kundalini-power opens and, coming from the spine, it rises from behind to the top of the head. The light and sound one experiences there is negative, it has nothing to do with the experience given by a competent Master.

Presciousness of listening

Journey to become honest and pure


 

 

To be honest
Is a matter of consciousness
To know our own mistakes
A process – walking into the depth

It is easy to say: “I am honest”
How many things we have overseen
Have not considered as honesty, dishonesty
In our daily life?

Yes, I am honest according of what I know
About my present state of mind
Present knowledge of myself
But what about the ignorance of myself?

Then I have missed many things
To consider as honesty, dishonesty
So walking in ourselves
Is to discover, to know ourselves – more and more…

What I claimed yesterday as honesty
May be today under a broadened horizon
So we bear honesty on our shoulders
To get lighter and lighter from ourselves…

The more we find us
The more we lose us
Detached from the world and even ourselves
To become pure in our hearts…

Fusion of Love


 

 

Love is not limited
On physical contacts
Love is the fusion
From spirit to spirit

Into one soul…

Difference between love and love


 

 

Love on the level of senses and mind
Loves the partner, the family, the pet, the country
Is limited to few people
Excludes millions and millions
Is a separating love from All and Oneness
Is a chosen love, not a love for everyone
Thus subject to conditions
Love with less understanding, less consciousness
That smells like ego, mind

Love on the level of the soul
Loves everyone, the whole creation
Is unlimited, embracing all and everything
Is sunshine for everyone
United in All and Oneness
Is a world-wide love, a love for all
Thus subject to unconditions
Love embedded in understanding, consciousness
That smells like roses and jasmine

May we all take a bath in the light of love
Love that is from the same essence as that of God
For all brothers and sisters in this world and beyond
For all creatures that God has created
Bathing in the Ocean of Love…without any borders…

Right Understanding – by Sant Kirpal Singh (part 8)


Dear friends,

The video-series of Right Understanding by Sant Kirpal Singh still continues.

 

 

Thanks for your attention

I am an Alien


 

 

I live among people
Who hate each other, go to war
Where blind rage draws faces
Laws degenerate: eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
Where people chase each other
To blame each other

I live on a planet
On which power, tyranny, egoism, money-greed rules
Where weapons and sharp words speak
Masses pour out in anger
Suppression is on the agenda
Man himself is next

I live in a boat called humanity
That staggers on the ocean violence
Where holes are chiselled in the planks
Threatening to sink the boat
Where stubbornness screams to the skies

Really, I live in this world
But I am not from this world

My heart belongs to the One
Where love is my home…

Kept in ignorance


 

 

People are kept in ignorance
Only the tip of the iceberg is revealed
Called secret resolutions
Behind closed doors
In the back of our knowledge

No wonder if things appear out of the blue…

Sleeping desires

Like flower seeds in desert sand
As soon as the first rain comes
They awake and bloom…

Lotos of the Soul


 

 

The soul blossoms
Like a lotus flower
From the mud of matter and mind
Once it rises above the body
When solving the mystery of life and death
The purpose of human life…

Happy or/and Sad


 

 

Is the purpose of life
To be happy or/and sad?

Or is it to be neutrally happy
Detached from the tentacles of the mind?

To detach us from I and mine
To surrender to Him and His?

To walk in the will of God
To become One with Him?

As long there is I and mine
We are separated from the Ocean of Oneness…

Then we only sit in the boat
Of happiness and sadness rotating…

The boat of I and mine…

DidiArtist, 25.06.2019

 
 

Ocean of All and Nothing


 

 

We have to become
Like a white sheet of paper
Unwritten and empty
Where we lose ourselves
To find Him

Losing our ego, our personality
Dissolving into the great void
Where no dual pencil writes anymore
No more vital ink is used
Law of karma has no power

We have to become
Innocent as a baby
That thinks with the heart
Bathing in eternal light
Listening to the sound of the voice of God

When we are no more
And yet dwell in life
We dive into His will
Are one with Him
A blank sheet of paper

Ocean of All and Nothing…

DidiArtist, 30.07.2020

 
 

Mind versus soul


 

 

Mind needs nearness and warmth
Limits love to a few
Is I-oriented, complacent
Intoxicated by l and mine

Soul is like a universe
Where everyone can take a seat
Nobody forgotten, excluded
Love that embraces the universe…

Mind watches jealously
That nothing is taken from what it “owns”
Rarely is satisfied
With what it has

Soul lives and lets live
Embodies all-encompassing love
Is sunlight and warmth
For all creatures

Mind separates, breaks in two
Words and persons
Replaces happiness with wishes
Reaps ups and downs

Soul builds up, puts together
Is one with everything
United consciousness
Breathes happiness and eternity
