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…
Mind that conquers winds
But not itself
That loves challenges
Compete with opponents
Under the cloak of good and evil
Giving orders, forcing obedience
Watering deserts with hate
And crazy dancing feelings
That plays theatre, performs shows
Between suffering and happiness
Anxiety and worries, emotional facets
Looking to taste itself
To feel liveliness
To be in existence
To seize the power
Oh, man, when do you wake up?
From your illusion, your delusion:
Alone, separated from everything…
Only Oneness is One
That holds itself together with love…
The missing link of the mind…
That searches reality — in vain…
Sometimes we are not aware
Of the consequences of our words and deeds
When we notice them,
Often it is already too late…
Then we get stuck in our own pride
With courage and confession
To be responsible for own mistakes
The rudder can still be pulled around
So we have to make peace with ourselves
To be in peace with others…
It is never too late for that…
I look through the window of the soul
Knock on the door of the heart
Enter the path that leads inside
Open the gates with the key of love
Where light and warmth welcome me
Embrace me in bliss
In a symphony of light
Living music vibrating
To show me the way
Golden Life, Home Eternal…
Building elements of all shapes
Puzzle of circles
Angles, curves, corners
On this side and beyond
A symbiosis of all and nothing
Life within limits, borders
Fences around space and time
Everything fits together
The cube, the rectangle
The triangle, trapeze
Lines that draw themselves
Components of life
Designed from eternity
A flux of being, non-being
Holography of flowing geometry…
Dear blogging friends,
Today I want to share with you some really profound words about “Right Understanding”
For you all a heart-felt greeting
Yogis leave the world, Rishis, Munis leave and the Sant who is sent by God leaves the world, but the Param Sant (God Himself) never leaves… …with Him we must come in contact.
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
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
Sant Kirpal Singh
I am not a Christian, Muslim, Hindu,
Or Buddhist, Sikh, Taoist in particular
Nor do I represent any other religion
Isolated from the others
To separate me from other people
I am unity, belonging to the whole
The boat we all sit in
I am a Christian, Muslim, Hindu,
Buddhist, Sikh, Taoist
And other creeds at the same time
For we are all children
Of the One God
And not split into this and that
We are all this boat in Him
So let us remain in our respective religion
Become a true Christian, a true Moslem, a true Hindu
A true Buddhist, a true Sikh, a true Taoist, etc.
In other words: to become a true man
To rise above separation, dogmatism, fanatism
And live in Oneness and Unity with the One
Then all fights will cease and vanish
Love and respect will increase
And right understanding will grow
Among all people and peoples
To understand we are all One in Him
True love is to love His whole creation
Is service to man, service to God
Helping each other…
Because He is undivided love –
How can we separate this love into fragments…
Even our sun gives sunshine to everyone…
He knows everything better
Knows an answer to all questions
Speaks ill of others
To take a bath in the limelight
He judges and condemns
Because he is not aware
Of himself and his doings
May he find the road of life
In humbleness and respect…
We just want to hear
What we like
Any truth that is contrary to us
We sweep under the carpet
Are we afraid
That our innermost is discovered?
Are we anxious
That the truth harms others?
Are we frightened
That we lose appreciation?
Are we scared
That our ego is losing something?
It is an illusory world
That we are building
Leading us to dependency
On the opinions of others…
How much honesty towards ourselves do we have?…
Loaded with presents and debts
Man lands in the market world
Bazaar of give and take
Old meets old
Known faces appear
Join the market
Endless rows of stands
To sell and buy
To lose and find
Business between man and man
Many get “richer”
Become more and more overloaded
Create new debts
While few empty their bags
Pay their bills
Gain rich emptiness
Close old wounds
Go Home smilingly
With empty hands…
My words are a cry
Of my heart
People, brothers and sisters
Let’s not seek the fight
Battle among one another
Let us meet in kindness
With compassion and love
Let us free ourselves from hate
Of being better, of craving for power
To find each other in peace
Let our hearts speak
Not our mind
People, brothers, sisters
Let’s replace self-interest.
To help each other
Serving each other selflessly
Overcoming pride and ego
Finding our own mistakes
Not those of the others
To make us better
To be higher
To create envy
But to create harmony
Togetherness, not selfishness
People, dear brothers, sisters
We’re all one
No-one’s better, nor worse
In our hearts we are all equal
Let’s stop waging war
Because every war
Is a war against ourselves
Let our hearts speak
Not our mind…
This path begins
By ourselves – individually:
The way of love and generosity…
Let us begin – not tomorrow, NOW…
