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

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.

 


 

 

 

Living with understanding, harmony


 
 

 

We may live in different rooms
(countries, cultures, religions, systems)
However, the owner of the house
Is  – God…

So we are all neighbours in this house
Good neighbours help each other
They do not fight against each other…

Are we good neighbours?
If not, a change is necessary…

Sant Kirpal Singh started the project Kirpal Sagar…

 


…and commissioned Dr. Harbhajan Singh and…


…his wife Biji Surinder Kaur to build up this beautiful place Kirpal Sagar, where all wordl-religions are peacefully under one roof, where poor people are helped, where man can feel the “aura” of Kirpal Sagar, where spirituality, moral and ethic is taught and lived practically, where man can become a real human being, where respect, love and Oneness are lived in service to man, mankind, God and to one’s own soul.
 

 

 

 

Medical help is given to poor people as there is a hospital too and even doctors are coming from Europe to help voluntarily.
 

This is the first hand-equipment for poor people who normally cannot marry, however, Kirpal Sagar helps them and arranges their wedding celebration.

 

The students of the Kirpal Sagar Academy perform plays and dances when there are days of celebrations.
 

 

 

 

 
 
 

We all are humans, no aliens to each other!


 

Don’t we breathe the same air
Under same sunshine?

Don’t we come and go
The same way
Birth and death?

We may speak a different language
May have different skin colour
May belong to different countries
To different religions, creeds

However, we should not build fenses
That separates us
From human being to human being

We all are humans
Under the same sky
Living on the same planet

So let us treat each other as humans
And not as aliens

When do we learn this lesson?…

Prayerless Prayer


 

Wishlessly happy
Free from attachments
Of the world
When completely surrendered,
Devoted to God
Because He is
In the heart
Knowing each thought

This service to God
Land, man and soul
Done with the heart
Becomes a permanent prayer
Without thoughts…

Scenes of Kirpal Sagar


Dear friends,

In Kirpal Sagar, there is also a library meant for a comparative study of different religions – to understand the basic idea what all religions have in common, where there is a common denominator. Thus holy scriptures of different religions can be read there.
Wishing you all the best, my friends with sunshine in your heart.
Didi

Let the heart speak


 

 

When the heart speaks
It makes no difference
Between black and white
It speaks with love and light

When the heart speaks
Forgotten all the differences
Be it culture or religion
Since it knows no collision, division

When the heart speaks
It hugs with love
Takes us as we are
As a golden star, not apart

When the heart speaks
No mind comes in between
It dresses us in love
In oneness and above

When the heart speaks
It shines in our hearts
Humanity and lights
That human love ignites

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…

Symbols of Unity


 

 

Symbols of unity

If you come to Kirpal Sagar, you can see the symbols of unity from afar. At first sight they are models of the four most common types of churches: the model of a Sikh temple, a Hindu temple, a mosque and a church. These typical forms are known from all religious traditions. Less known is that they refer to the human body.

Gurdawaras, the temples of the Sikhs, are dome-shaped, similar to the form of the head. The shape of the mosque reminds one of the forehead. The nose-shaped towers of the churches often stand on a ground plan resembling a cross that corresponds to a person with outstretched arms.

Their message is: God is in us – the true temple is man himself.

The history of mystics and saints of different epochs and cultures shows that they all went the way of contemplation and meditation and thus came to their statements about God. The Holy Scriptures contain hints and reports about their inner experiences. When comparing the scriptures, one encounters conforming statements about experiences of light and inner sounds, with perfect spiritual teachers or Masters able to convey them to other people in practice.

While the Absolute God is indescribable and incomprehensible, light and sound are the two aspects through which He expresses Himself.

Everything originated through this God-power, is the life principle or the life impulse, without nothing can exist. Man as the ‘crown of creation’ has the ability to perceive It by turning inwardly and coming into contact with It. Becoming one with this power is the original goal of meditation, and this is also the spiritual core of religion, which is completely independent of the external forms and rituals of the various religions.

In the scriptures, the working God-power is described by various names, among others as Sruti in the Vedas, Naad or Udgit in the Upanishads, as Sarosha in Zend-Avesta, as the word in the Bible, as Kalima with the Prophet Mohammed, as Saut with the Sufis, Shabd or Naam in the Sikh scriptures, as music of the spheres and all harmonies with Plato and Pythagoras and as the voice of silence with the Theosophists.

Light, life and love are regarded as the essential attributes of the divine and are innate in every sentient being. If man forgets his true nature and experiences himself as separated from that Power, it will result in strangeness, which may lead to hatred and suffering.

The relationship between man and God is based on unity of man – the brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God.

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


 

 
 

Excerpts from the Library exhibition in Kirpal Sagar -1-


 
 

 
 

Selfless Service – by Sant Kirpal Singh


An excerpt from the book: “Morning Talks” by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

 

Selfless service is done in two ways. The first way is physical service. If somebody is sick, go and serve him. Shall I see somebody in need, hungry, naked, poor fellow? The Masters have always been for the poor, for the needy, to console them, to raise them up to the level of every man. If we do that, if everyone would share with others, there would be no poor in the world. Why are men so needy and hungry? Because we don’t share. So by sharing with others, our self expands. At the very moment of giving you feel a little joy within. That is the compensation you get, direct. But whenever you give, don’t give with the hope that you will have a return. Give for the sake of sharing with others. Sometimes we give for the reward that we will get in heaven. This is not the way, selfless giving is what is needed. This is one of the qualifications for one who would like to progress on the Spiritual way. So he is a man, who lives for others, who shares with others, with the needy, with the hungry, with those who are in very poor circumstances and cannot go on. What do we do? We feed our children very richly, while the children of our neighbours die of hunger. This is not what is wanted.

One of the Mohammedan saints, who happened to be a lady, once prepared to go to Mecca on pilgrimage. Mecca is a place of pilgrimage for Mohammedans and is located in Arabia. She had some money for the journey and as she was about start, she noticed some poor, hungry fellow in the neighbourhood. She gave away everything to him and so was not able to go to the place of pilgrimage. What was the result? An angel appeared to her and said that her pilgrimage had been accepted. You follow what is meant? The man who lives on his own earnings, earned by the sweat of his brow, honestly, and who shares with others, such a man only is fit to progress on the Spiritual way. Give not for the sake of compensation or return. Give for the sake of sharing with others. That is your duty towards your brothers and sisters.

A mother, whose children are hungry, will take out a morsel from her own mouth and give it to the children. She does not care for any return. So help others with that angle of vision, with that spirit. We give sometimes for show. That is only for name and fame. That charity is no charity. Christ said, “If one hand gives, the other hand should not know”. If one hand gives something, let not your other hand know about it. So this is what is meant by charity.

 

 

Love for All


 

 

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…

Connecting link


 

 

There is one religion
It grows within
The religion of love

Is beauty of a flower
Spreading its perfume
From man to man

This love connects
Creates unity
Beyond boundaries

Unites planets and univerves
Is essence of life
Lives in the hearts of every man

Religion of love
On the level of man…

Diversity in Oneness


 

 

Common feature

We see men and women in the world
What do they have in common? – They are humans

We see many different skin colours in the world
What do they have in common – They are humans

We see nationalities in the world
What do they have in common? – All are humans

We see so many different relgions in the world
What do they have in common? – All are humans

Ergo: We should see us on the level of Man
Not on the level of differences…

This common denominator is the glue
Of all differences we see in the world…

It connects us, makes us One…

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
Didi
