We lose our attention and interest in objects
That have become our subject…
The water is running
From top of the mountain
And so is God’s grace
From heaven to earth
Separating love is
No love, is limited
Do we build houses to put
The foundation stone at last?
Do we start loving a few like
Family, friends, spouses
And forget the rest?
When we start loving God
It is the foundation stone
For the home of love
Offering space for everyone
At night in silence you came
Touching my soul
In all colours, vibrations
Music all over me, in me
Like a shower of divine sparkles
I see the high mountains
With purple light on top
And blue eternity above
Gigantic thunderous waves roll
Within the change of tides
Washing golden life ashore
To the coast of coming and going
From deep gulches a sound vibrates
Arises to unite the light
Merging depths and heights
That every cell begins to dance, to sing
The song of Oneness, Unity
O God, O God, how beautiful these spheres
Of endless happiness on gentle wings
In symphony of sound and light
Your ocean full of life
Belonging all to you.
Divine harmonic sounds – everywhere
Longing in my heart for You – the One
Surrounded with your light and sound
That dances in the night
To carry me to You
To see just You You You You You You You…
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.
God and I in space alone
and nobody else in view.
“And where are the people, O Lord,” I said,
“the earth below and the sky o’er head
and the dead whom once I knew?”
“That was a dream,” God smiled and said,
“A dream that seemed to be true.
There were no people, living or dead,
there was no earth, and no sky o’er head;
there was only Myself — in you.”
“Why do I feel no fear,” I asked,
“meeting You here this way?
For I have sinned I know full well–
and is there heaven, and is there hell,
and is this the Judgment Day?”
“Nay, those were but dreams,”
the Great God said,
“Dreams that have ceased to be.
There are no such things as fear or sin;
there is no you — you never have been–
there is nothing at all
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
On His last Punjab-tour in October 1973, Sant Kirpal Singh visited the Agriculture Farm located near Nawanshar. There was one room made of mud and one Pacca-room beside a little room for the water-pump. Master stayed there nearly for fifteen minutes. He took water from the water-pump and a grain of rice. Then He blessed Kirpal Sagar which now has been built beside the Farm.
With due permission of the Master, the name Manav Kendra was changed to Kirpal Sagar before Sant Kirpal Singh left His physical body. Kirpal means ‘Grace’, Sagar means ‘Ocean’ – thus the name Kirpal Sagar means ‘Ocean of Grace’.
Master wants from heart that everyone should do the work (selfless service): Everyone should put his head and heart to do that work. It is His earnest desire, a desire from His heart, because He loves each child and wants to develop everyone. He is not having any connection with us on the physical level, but His contact is direct with the soul.
So blessed are those who are chosen for this purpose; they are very fortunate. Master always laid stress upon this subject (the importance of selfless service). Because in the lives of all competent Masters and their devotees, there was only one way: To live and to do for Him! And this is the ultimate goal. If the disciple is obliged to the Master, he says, “I have to do whatever my Master would tell me, it is my highest duty to obey His order.”
The place which Sant Kirpal Singh has chosen for Kirpal Sagar has also a background which first was not known to us. When we started the construction work, people from the surroundings came to us, and one of them told that an old person had been living there whose name was Chattar Singh; he was considered to be mad. To that place the cows were taken for grazing, and he used to sit along with the boys there. He never would return to his home, he stayed overnight in the forest, which was full of snakes. There was also a certain animal which always attacks man. It is not injurious, but its teeth are very sharp. One time, when taking rest, he was bitten by this animal and his nose was bleeding. Those boys wanted to take him to the doctor nearby for dressing the wound, but he said, “No, there is a hospital, I have got it dressed over there.”
Sometimes the boys used to say, “Old man, you are smelling, you should take a bath.” He would reply, “Yes, here is a Sarovar, a holy tank, I’m always taking a bath there.” When they offered him to share their food, he answered, “No, there is a big common kitchen here, I always take the food from here.” All the time he used to tell such things, and he even said, “There is a big temple, a house of God.” So all people called him a mad person, who is seeing things where other people don’t see anything. Now those persons from the neighbourhood believe that he was a holy man.
So, holy places are already fixed by the Masterpower. Kings, premiers, and rich persons can create cities, but holy places are built only by the Masters, they are built in the omnipresence of the Masterpower. The guidance of the Master continues every moment, and in spite of many problems in the beginning the commissioned Manav Kendra could be constructed.
Kirpal Sagar is a common ground for all people to get together, irrespective of caste, colour, creed, religion or country. It belongs to all human beings of the world. In Kirpal Sagar no religion but the basic teaching of all religions is taught, which is one and the same and has been written with one opinion.
To keep the various outer rituals and rites of the different religions with their basic signification is no bar to true religion. Every religion teaches the universal teaching of the universal link among all human beings – the Brotherhood of Men under 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.
Kirpal Sagar is neither being built in the memory of Sant Kirpal Singh, nor is it a personal wish. It was the wish of Sant Kirpal Singh which is being fulfilled by all devoted disciples of Him.
Moreover, who learns and yearns or who wants to learn and yearn can also work in Kirpal Sagar, as it is the work of God, done by man but inspired by God. This is the highest but the rarest chance that ever comes in the life of a human being.

Perhaps it will not be out of place to explain here the meaning of the term “spirituality,” which is often confused with blind faith in sacred books, a display of miracles, psychic phenomena, or yogic powers. Spirituality is an inner experience and its alphabet begins where all philosophy and yoga practices end. It is the experience of the soul. When one says, “I am the body,” it is a feeling based on the intellect and is defined as ignorance. When he says, “I am not the body, I am an awakened soul,” it is learnt knowledge or theory only; but when he gets an actual experience of the soul by self-analysis and contacts the Overself, it is called spirituality. The first practical lesson commences when there is a complete withdrawal from the physical body through the kindness of a practical Master. No one can withdraw and separate himself from the physical body unaided. If anyone claims otherwise and thinks that he can, he but deceives himself. All attempts without the assistance of a Master, who alone is qualified to impart this experience, will end in failure. Masters come to distribute this treasure of spiritual blessings to seekers after truth.
Spirituality cannot be bought or taught, but it can be caught by contact with spiritual people. Moreover, nature’s gifts such as air, water, light, etc., are free. Spirituality is also nature’s gift and is also given free by the Masters. Likewise, spirituality cannot be acquired from books, which is a fact all sacred scriptures uphold. Books are a valuable record of the inner experiences of others in spirituality. They fill up gaps in history and contain messages from past Masters, which help us to verify the facts revealed by a living Master, thus confirming our faith in the science. Man is confused by the various translations, interpretations and expositions, each different from the other, which instead of relieving his mind, tend rather to bewilder and confuse him. His egoism too has created hundreds of religious circles, whose aim is aloofness and narrow orthodoxy instead of love, and insularity instead of integration. Torn between conflicting emotions, men develop hatred and think of war.
For an understanding of the science of the Masters, we attend Satsang, where the majority of our doubts are cleared. Direct answers from the Master will help to remove any remaining doubts. All questions receive the same calm consideration and no arguments are offered. Rich or poor, high or low, all receive equal attention in the same manner as a doctor should attend to the sick. A true Master views a man’s rights and wrongs as clearly as one sees the contents of a glass jar, but He reveals nothing. Sitting before Him, even those who do not understand His language are benefited, just as one in a perfumer’s shop enjoys the smell of sweet scents. The Master showers blessings through His looks, which the eager ones catch. His eyes are a wonderful spray of love.
Nations fight nations
Towns in rivalry
Violence at the horizon
Villages set boundaries
Sports atrophied into enemies
Exciting the minds
Families fight families
Tear the right
Trample on respect, human values
Bothers and sister
Radiate their ego:
Envy and competion
Where lies this evil?
In our own mind
Root of good and evil
Changing in the wind
Time to get down
To the root of our troubles
Time to understand
Who we really are…
Man know thyself…
In deep silence
Space opens up
Feels like a dream
It pulls me out of my body
And I understand:
I am not the body
In deep silence
My spirit leaves this world
Into a new world
Where God composes life
Let me live as a music note
In deep silence
Awakened from a dream
In a new dimension
Where eternity is my home
Love hugs me
Touched by light and bliss
In deep silence
Into divine music
I present to you
My God, my heart
Give back what is Yours
Rise in divine light and sound…
Man consists of three parts: the body, the mind, and the soul. In spirituality, mind is defined not only as emotions and feelings but also consists of intellect, the self-assertive ego, our imaginations, and wishes, as well as the stored karmic impressions of this life and all previous lives.
The whole world is in the grip and mercy of the mind. Mind is made of matter, it takes the energy from the soul and has acquired astral form in the body and works with four different phases:
It absorbs the attention (the attention is the outer expression of the soul, the soul is working outside through the attention) The result of the attention i.e. its activities. It differentiates through the intellect and affects the intellect in its own way, draws inferences out of differentiation
The mind keeps the man busy through reading, writing, feeling, emotion, drawing inferences on its own way. It also creates desires and identifies itself through the senses and sense organs. Temporarily it has made the soul blind and the soul does not discriminate since the procedure, the mind has developed, is very tedious and uneven.
Sant Kirpal Singh
May be so much repelling
That they create huge walls
Between themselves and human beings
It is the pride
That lies in-between
Blocking them to come closer
Old paths well-trodden
Unproved, unchecked adopted
With little or no experiences
Teeth defended grindingly
Built on half-truths and less
Clinging to personal conviction
Oneness broken in opinions
Show that something is wrong
When people go apart
Leave the circle of unity
