Change for the Better


 

 

Stability makes life flourishing
Peace creates stability

Tolerance bridges differences of opinion
Respect for each other creates tolerance

Common ground strengthens understanding
Overcoming differences creates common ground

Differences lead to enrichment
Fair sharing creates togetherness

Love for all people, animals, and plants unites
Compassion creates this love

Not where we separate us is the hope
But where we connect us as human beings…

Religion of Love


 

 

The different religions
Are like countries, nations
Islands of the same Ocean
Which separate themselves from each other

Yet their followers breathe the same air
Without borders, milestones in between
All receive the same sunshine
Without fencing it…

What we all need:
Unlimited love
A religion of love
Which unites all men…

Names are boundaries
But God is boundless…

The inner Sound (music of the spheres) – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

 

 

 

Maulana Rumi says: “The Saints are the True Devotees of God, always listening to the Divine Music within. That infuses life into the lovers of God.” Shamas Tabriz, another Muslim Saint, also speaks of it: “Every moment a strange type of call is coming from the Heaven. I hear that voice and none else. Blessed indeed are they who hear this call.” This song is quite unique in character. No language can describe it — neither Turkish, nor Arabic, nor Persian, nor any other. It is, in fact, an Unspoken Language and an Unwritten Law unto itself. The Prophet Mohammed once declared that He listened to the Voice of God just as He listened to any other voice. But when questioned as to why it could not be heard by others, He said, ‘”You cannot hear this Voice as your ears have been sealed up. Hie to some Master Soul with a prayer for breaking of the seal and then listen attentively in the silence of your heart.” Mrs. Annie Besant, the great Theosophist, calls it the Voice of the Silence and says that the Silence becomes vocal when the mind is at perfect rest. “The Kingdom of God is within you,” says Christ. The trouble is that we search for it without and find it not. Man in his search for God has not spared any efforts. He has looked for Him in the sacred rivers (like Ganges, etc.), in the snow-capped mountains of Badrinath, Kailash, Amarnath, etc., in the deep recesses of the forests, and in the sacred places of all antiquity, but with no success. As the “way out” to God lies within, you will have to find a Master who knows the Way and would be a guide unto you until the goal is reached. This work only a True Master can do and no one else can do it. Now the question comes: Where can this Divine Music be contacted? To this the Master replies, “This Divine Music is going on in Sukhmana (a central cord between Ida and Pingala, the two cords on either side, which running through the spine and passing through the center of and between the two eyebrows, reaches directly as far as Sach Khand or Shah Rag as named by the Muslims). It can be experienced by the soul in her deepest depths, when layer by layer the various sheaths or coverings (physical or gross, mental or subtle, and causal) are shaken off from the soul in her onward journey to the various Lokas or regions: the sun, the moon, the stars, of spirits (Pithrian), of Deities (Devian), etc. At each stage, the Music becomes more enrapturing than before, until in Par Brahm (beyond the three Lokas) the soul becomes self-luminous in her pristine glory; then the Music, too, becomes exceedingly charming, in full swell with unending continuity. This is the Ajapa Jap going on at all times in an Unspoken Language. As the soul hears it she gets magnetized, with the result that the mind with its outgoing faculties is paralyzed for want of the inspiration it is used to drawing from the Spirit, and gradually it loses its hold of her. The high-born maiden (being a drop of the ocean of Sat Nam) is freed from its clutches and now moves on unhampered.” It is, of course, impossible to describe the sublime symphonies in so many words, as they are past description for want of adequate expression. At present every soul has, on account of constant association with mind, acquired a tendency to flow downward and outward through the outgoing faculties. It is because of this that she cannot catch the Sound Current (the Elixir of Life) within. A cup turned upside down may for ages remain in the rain, but not a drop will fall into it. But if it is turned aright, it will get filled up in one or two showers. Exactly is it the case with the soul. As soon as the Master Soul gives her a contact with the life-giving Sound Current, by turning it aright through the withdrawal of the sensory current, the lotus-like cup of the spirit gets more and more water of Immortality until she gets drenched through and through and is saved forever. Mind, you know, is ever after pleasures of one kind or another. But the pleasures of this world are all transitory and have always some sting at the bottom. “Our sincerest laughter with some pain is fraught,” says an English poet. This renegade of the mind can only be subdued if some internal pleasure of rapturous strains of the Divine Music — the Word — is given to it in lieu of the external one. When mind tastes the sweet Elixir, it is diverted from the worldly enjoyments and is subdued. The soul becomes free. This is the only remedy by which the sages controlled the mind. It held good in all ages — the Golden, the Silver and the Copper, and holds good even today in Kali Yuga or the Iron Age. The Sat is eternal. It was in the beginning. It was in the middle, and it shall ever remain until Eternity.

The Divine Music of Sat is then the sovereign remedy for stilling the mind. In due course of time, by regular practice, the soul becomes fully absorbed into the Elixir of Naam, and the mind is rendered absolutely ineffectual. As said above, the Sound Current begins from Turya Pad when, the sensory current having withdrawn from the body, the soul enters into the Beyond. The five strains in seriatim follow one another from one spiritual plane to another until Sach Khand is reached. One has to take hold of each of these strains or melodies for traversing from stage to stage until the final stage is attained. It is only here that salvation of the soul is assured and the cycle of births and deaths ends. This is the grand purpose of life, which one fulfills through the grace of the Master Soul. The Master Saint Shamas Tabriz says: “The Great God has turned us out and closed strongly the door behind the eyes. He Himself comes to us in the garb of a man to take us back into His fold.” The method by which He lets us in once again is explained further: First one has to withdraw into the silence of the soul, before he begins to hear the five strains of Music. The sensory current is to be withdrawn at the seat of the soul behind the eyebrows. The journey onward begins from this stage, the seventh in the order from below. When the soul rises above the six chakras or ganglions in the Pind or physical body and starts toward Sahans dal Kanwal (thousand petaled lotus), the seventh stage, she catches the first of the five strains of the Divine Music and proceeds further. There is no Naam in the lower six chakras. These, in fact, are the grave, from which we have to rise above and come to the point from where the Grand Trunk Road of Spirituality begins. Another Saint says, “At the seventh stage you begin to hear the five strains of the Divine Music, when you remove the tent of the soul from the graveyard of the body comprising the six lower chakras. From here heavenly Music takes charge of the soul and pulls it up from stage to stage until the final consummation with Sat Purush or Sat Naam takes place.” Almost all the Saints have given the same qualifications of a True Master. Guru Arjan says, “Accept that man as a Guru who can give you an experience of the Truth, the Naam. That is indescribable, no doubt, but we must have some contact thereof.” In short, whoever can tune us into the Shabd — the Divine Music.

Learn to swim


 

 

We do not learn swimming on land
We learn swimming in the water
– In the water of life…

So let us swim in the ocean of life
Without drowning, accepting even high waves
To reach the shore of eternity

Sant Kirpal Singh – RIGHT UNDERSTANDING


 

Dear friends,

I want to introduce a number of shorter videos about “Right Understanding” with the teaching of Sant Kirpal Singh.

All the best to you all

Let God live in our attention


 

 

Wherever we go
Let’s take Him with us

He lives in our heart
Knows our thoughts

There is no way
To hide from Him

Our knowledge should be a reminder
He is always with us

Our love for Him will grow
As we become aware of our sins

Cheating us, cheating Him
It will not work

We run against self-built walls
Reap what we sow

Forget Him in turning our face
To this and that

So let us enter Him
Into our attention

And become One with Him…

Who am I


 

 

What am I?
Who am I?

I am a thought that lives
An indescribable something

Live on a time-floe
Breathe the cosmos, the infinity

Am a wave of action and reaction
Trace of the past, brick of the future

Knowledge of own existence
Veiled in being

Am I a domino effect
Programme within a programme?

Am I a conscious simulation
A perpetual transition?

I feel that I am
And feel that I am not

What am I? – A divine dream
Who am I? – Everything and nothing…

Inside Out


 

 

The water of life
Is not boiled outside
But inside…

Counteract Craziness


 

 

Allowing craziness in our national worlds
Is a lack of deeds and words…

If a crazy man leads
It requires actions and deeds…

Fear, ignorance, and laziness
Will lead to craziness

Do and live wisely for others and yourself…

Who we are


 

 

My life is a grain of sand
Within the life of all life
It is connected to everything

I look into the depths of life
Into the cosmos of all things
Movement of being, non-being

So everything is in me:
Consciousness, my Higher Self
That also is in everyone

Connected to this Higher Self
Is each and every-one of us
Universal connection, togetherness

God is called this Higher Self
We are looking for but cannot find
For He is already within us…

Wisdom lost in knowledge


 

 
 

Rituals and Rites (excerpts from the Library of Kirpal Sagar)


 
 

 
 

Broken Mirror


 

 

Why do we separate us
In colours, cultures, and religions?

Are we aliens to each other
Or are we humans to each other?

Do we live on different planets
Breathe different air?

Are we not born the same way?
Do not feel the same way: hot and cold?

Take a bath under different suns
Do not all live in a night and day rhythm?

We do everything to be apart
However, we should do everything to be one…

One mankind
One religion – of love
One Father – for all
One planet
In oneness united…

True religion is universal love and remembrance of God


 

 
 

Policy versus Spirituality


 

 

Policy is business
The bargaining of political games
A play of the mind

Spirituality is humanity
A finding of oneself
A knowing of oneself

Policy: In the shadow of the mind
Spirituality: In the light of the soul

Only when honestly knowing ourselves
We are able to know others
Able to lead others with humanity
Without the games of the cunning mind…

Spiritually stunted


 

 

Technically developed, spiritually stunted

Give a monkey a gun
He won’t hesitate
To play with it, to fire it…

Aren’t we all still monkeys…?

Between madness and foolishness


 

 

Mind that conquers winds
Questioning everything
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…

DidiArtist, 25.11.2019

 

A humble man


 

 

Many people feel
Better or higher than others
If they have more money
Have more power
Hold titles
Are highly profiled

They compare
In order to make themselves better
There, no humility is contained…

Only a person with humility and respect
Becomes a real man…
