So-called masters – by Kabir/Sant Kirpal Singh/Dr. Harbhajan Singh

 

 

So-called masters

What a mire the world is lost in! It doesn’t know a Saint from a charlatan!
O my brother, just because someone has collected a group of followers, does that make him a holy man?

Kabir

It matters what we want to attain

Sant Kirpal Singh describes it as follows: There are Masters and masters, with due deference to all. It is for us to see what we get. Those who are after worldly things or supernatural powers or mind-reading or perhaps healing are really not after God. These are side issues. They get that thing and that is all, but they do not get God.

Why is gurudom in disrepute today?

Modern gurus are generally political at heart. They have an axe to grind – to make money and get honour and respect. They are not concerned with the well-being of the people. Their object is to impress the people by their hypocrisy, deceit, and falsehood. You may be taken in by these methods.

What did Christ say: “Beware of the false prophets who come in sheep’s clothing but are ravening wolves.” They appear to be very polite. The only criterion can be one who can give you a lift, open the inner eyes so that you see there is light there; not tell you that you’ll get it in due course. What another criterion can there be, tell me? Their propaganda? No! There is no dearth of propaganda anywhere. Money can buy anything. Propaganda can be paid for. But what is the criterion? Can he open the inner eye, remove the darkness from within for you to see? There you say, “God is Light”.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 

So-called masters

“Tricky people create confusion and the confused follow them as their Master and out of confusion they do not leave. To create confusion in one’s heart is the act of “so-called poles” (who claim to be a Master or a competent teacher but do not have any competency). Directly or indirectly they are connected with the negative power. They themselves do not know the consequences of that play and cannot explain it to others. Preacher and followers are under illusion, which they think to be an act of God.”

“Miracles, which are a play of the astral powers, affect such people and bring them into the fold of the negative power. Those who enjoy the miraculous powers are devoid of the positive and the higher values of life, (they cannot regain them) till they really find the way to an awakened person.”

The miracles shown by those confused people are the outbursts of the astral effects in the physical world and bring them lots of diseases of the mind. Thus the diseases of the mind are due to the astral effects on the mind. In other words, mental diseases or the diseases of the mind are astral diseases. Most of the people wish to gain peace of the mind, and they can be easily misled by the negative power and the astral effects upon them.

Very rare are such people who have no desires and whose wishes are fulfilled without having any desire. They are the blessed ones to whom God reveals all they need. All others are thus (due to their wishes) bound in giving and taking since there is no (possibility of getting) free out of grace without the gracious Master. Thus all such people lose their capital, and their interests are increasing till they have lost the whole capital and also the positive vision.

Its likings in an always finer and more subtle way, and there is no end to this desire. Thus one feels even happier when one sees something in the astral vision. But he is ignorant and does not know this play which is mere smoke and dust. The miracles which appear due to one’s wishes, affect one’s mind and the thoughts remain involved.

The fruit of life is within the belief of the Master

One may outwardly pose like a Master, one may create oneself to be a holy person and start proving a great holy personality with the help of bookish knowledge, but the inner life is not changed. For how long will such acting and posing continue? At last, the cat will be out of the bag. For how long will people trust?

One may put a silken cloth on dirt, the bad smell will be emitted from there. Acting and posing have taken the place of true living. Those who act well are taken into good books. When people have bitter experiences for want of their demand, they call names (him who was not able to give them something). They should (complain) since they had given their head and heart. So Master says, “Believe only when you see yourself.” Without seeing, sometimes belief becomes a mystery, and to solve it may take one’s whole life.

Master tells us: “Reading, writing, feelings, emotions. drawing inferences are all subject to error, seeing is above all.”

All worldly disputation is fake and futile.

There are two pieces of knowledge – one of the heart and the other relating to bookish knowledge. The knowledge of the heart is light and full of intoxication. It is easy to carry either during life or after life. Whereas the bookish knowledge is a burden of many sighs and is difficult to carry.

Saints have respect for the bookish knowledge provided one moves further to attain it in practical form. Otherwise, this theoretical knowledge is liable to forget. In the scriptures, there is written about God, but God is not there. Without practical knowledge, there can be strains of various degrees, which leads to illusion and delusion.

The “so-called saints” in the world are devoid of that practical knowledge but are well versed with the theoretical aspect of life which they have grasped from the experience of others. They advise others (in spite of) their fake and suspicious conduct. They preach the truth but they act the other way. There is a difference between day and night between their inner and outer life. It is the highest time to rely on the experience of our past competent Masters, which are in accordance with the holy scriptures, and to develop the sincere wish to have those experiences ourselves. And this very same experience we should demand (from a Master). One should create a ruling passion to get the highest gift of life and never remain (contented) in those experiences limited to one’s intellect and mind. Where the world’s philosophies end, there the religion starts. The physical, astral, and causal regions are the worlds made by physical, astral, and causal matter, and they have no importance for us and have nothing to provide. Whatever exists there is not the heritage of the soul but is rather the food and heritage of mind and intellect. What the soul wants is the longing (for God) and the reunification with Him.

Unity of Man

Love, unity, brotherhood
Respect, tolerance, understanding
Non-violence in thoughts, words and deeds
Oneness among brothers and sisters
Serving, helping each other
Supporting those in need
Sharing and caring
Living in harmony and peace

This all will help us
To jump over the shadows or our own ego…

The time will come

 

 

The time will come
Where smoking and drugs will be frowned upon
When animal food will no longer be eaten
Death will no longer make the body a grave

The time will come
Where lust for power will be a thing of the past
Where egoistic systems disintegrate
Where unconscious people no longer rule

The time will come
Where people appreciate and respect each other
Where violence and sex glorification end
No longer have a place in society

The time will come
Where people understand, help each other
Where money and titles no longer matter
Replaced by honesty and generosity

The time will come
Where we look back on ourselves shaking our heads
Where unity lives, is understood
As brother and sister in the One….

The time will come
Where humanity comes of age…

Of One humanity

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

 

Dawn of mankind

 

 

Let us stand together
As humans, to live
Unity of man
Overcome hostilities

Let us lay down the weapons
Thoughts of violence
Like ulcers in our heads
Overcome what separate us

Let us treat as humans
As brothers and sister
Remove selfishness
Overcome conflicts

Let us be an inter-net
Of Love and brotherhood
Bond of service, mutual help
Overcome hate and greed

Let us widen our hearts
Welcome all people
As part of ourselves
Overcome better and worse

Let us simply be humans
Helping each other
In good and bad times
In the light of humanity

Let us begin to bear responsibility
Each one of us – today
To see a better world tomorrow
A mankind of love and peace

Separation and Oneness

 

 

Politics is separation
From party to party
From man to man
While spirituality is:
The unity of man, Oneness

It is time for wise men to govern
With respect, humility, understanding
With honesty and compassion
For all people…

Coronavirus: An appeal to Humanity

 

 

Let us all stand together
Overcoming differences through our heart
Whether rich or poor
No matter what colour we are
What religion we belong to
What country we come from

This virus affects us all
No one is spared
Spreads fear and terror everywhere
But it can unite us
Make us conscious: We are all one
Are all humans, a big family

This virus gives us the understanding
That nothing is certain
That everything changes
What is today is different tomorrow
But it can wake us up:
To treat each other as human beings

Let us conquer terror and fear
Walking in humanity and respect
Help each other, make sacrifices
Coming together from man to man
Anchoring love as the strongest force
And hold us from heart to heart

In the end, we all can come out as winners
When we have learned our lesson:
We all are human beings, no better, no worse
Just a big human family

Virus of Love

 

 

May a virus enter the world
That does not spread fear and terror
But transmits love and understanding
From heart to heart
Is enriched with consciousness
Does not separate people
But unites them
Is a transmitter of cordiality
Kindness and happiness
Connecting our hearts
To remind us:
We all are one…

Lack of Knowledge

 

 

How can a person lead people,
If he cannot lead himself
If he doesn’t know himself?
Then how can he know other people
To guide them properly?

And when this person says:
“O yes, I know myself!”
Then it is sure:
He does not know himself…

DidiArtist, 01.03.2020

 
 

Solidary Lies

 

 

Belonging to a party
Should not be a free ticket
For joining a concert of lies

Not the lie from your mouth
Should speak, should rise
Just to show solidarity
Truth and warning conscience
Should be your driving force…

Impressions of Kirpal Sagar

Dear friends,

Some more impressions of Kirpal Sagar (translated: Ocean of Grace), India.

Have peace in your heart and progress on your spiritual path.

With heartfelt greetings.
Didi

 
 


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.
 

 

 

 

 
 
 

Gulch between man and man

 

 

Where differences exist
People split themselves
Fought out in understanding
In grade and shade

Where man takes sides
Roads are forking
Towards individual directions
When the spirit splits

Politics here, sports there
Parties here, groups there
Separate in fighting
For dogmatic views

Teeth hold on to opinions, ideas
In the alliance of collective egos
With war-voices: only we!
What a human failure

Understanding is fragmented
Unity sacrificed
For own advantages
Man thereby divided

Differences need connections
Bridges that unite
Build unities
Love between human and human

Oneness of love and peace among people
A new horizon of understanding
That we all are one
In the One…

A cosmic symphony, divine notes…

DidiArtist, 05.02.2020

 
 

Selfish mind

If we are conscious
That God is everywhere
How can we hurt other people?
As in all people
This power is there too

We can only hide us from Him
When we are unconscious
When we ignore, hide Him in us
When we deceive ourselves
Play a game or make a show

So let us become conscious
Knowing that we are all one
That He is the One in all of us
Let us treat therefore with respect, love
As this is love and respect to God

From good thoughts
Good words and deeds will follow
On the foundation of honesty
Which is honesty towards God and Oneness
A tool to clean our impure mind…

DidiArtist, 05.03.2017

 

Corruptible

 

 

How many lies are spread
Just to save one’ s own skin?

How much truth is covered up
For money and power?

How many fakes go across the table
Selling out honour and honesty?

How much cowardice is behind every lie
Just not losing benefits?

How much courage does it take
To free yourself from dependencies?

Questions for people and politics
Exchanging their credibility against egoistic advantages…

A world of peace and love

 

 

My heart paints a world
Free from fear and sorrow
Where weapons are buried
Freedom is among
People and peoples

My heart paints a world
Free from poverty and money
Where all is shared
Fairly distributed
Humanity reigns

My heart paints a world
Free from hate and anger
Where love and peace is present
Support and help alive
Unconditionally in man

My heart paints a world
Free from ego, selfishness
Where we as brothers, sisters
In harmony and oneness
Make our world a paradise

My heart paints a world
A meadow of beauty, happiness
Where differences are respected
Uniqueness accepted
Unfolding blossoms of love

Judged

 

Why we compare us with others?
Why we exclude and include?
Why we need witnesses
To our critical voices?

To feed our ego
In confirmations
With dark voices
To play the game
Of worse and better

A heart that really wishes improvement
Is able to listen between 4 ears
Has no need to flock together
To stone a situation, an absent person

Searching for confirmation
To justify ones own criticism
It is the deep fear
It could be true
What was said between 4 ears…

Why we need negativity?
In our thoughts, words and actions
Because we want to make us positive?
Hidden in supporting voices we need so badly?…

Are we really such good persons???
What we really need?
A bit more respect, a bit more humility
Really, a “bit more” love and understanding…

DidiArtist, 16.12.2011

 

It is not seldom that…

 

 

It is not seldom that we show ourselves
As the good, the infallible ones
Looking down on others
Measure them, judge them

It is not seldom that we compare ourselves
With people around us
Loading guilt on their shoulders
To rise above them

It is not seldom that our gaze
Is dyed in Higher and Better
To demonstrate flawlessness
Humiliate our fellow men

It is not seldom that we exhibit
How great and good we are
Catching applause, reward
Carelessly, arrogantly

It is not seldom that we seek victims
Who pay the price
For our fallibilities
That we hide from others

DidiArtist, 19.03.2019

 
 

Ignorance in hurting people

 

 

Often we are not aware when we hurt someone
For we are so much busy with ourselves, not seeing
That our reaction has a hurting content
As a motto: “I come first…”

We are fast with prejudices
See things on the level of our ego
Too proud to admit when mistakes made
Leave the hurt one alone: “Not my business…”

There is fear to face the truth
That we were wrong, ego-oriented?
A chess-player cannot just see his own chess pieces
Needs to step into each other’s shoes

Only then we learn the “moves” of the other
Better to understand, better to react
Instead of adopting the position: “I do not care…”
So also no reactions – can hurt…

These thoughts packed in silence
Are like an arrow shot into the other’s heart…

DidiArtist, 15.01.2020

 

World of love

 

 

Our system is built up
In a hierarchy of power and titles
Attached to the ego
Wants more and more control

How much dirt and sand is used
To climb on this ladder?
A system, a business tailored
Between Yes and No

Forced to follow, to obey
In exchange for new roles
For higher positions
Paid with tricky temptations

One hand gives
Draws values, ideals in the air
While the other hand
Imprisons, keeps one tight

Orders are given from top to bottom
Manipulation on each level
Freedom – where is it?
When life is spoon-fed

At the horizon a new mankind is announced
Where better and higher crumbles away
A silver-lining of humanity
In the language of the heart

Where the voice of the heart is arising
There is no space for control and power…

DidiArtist, 13.03.2019

 
 

How we should treat us

 

When treating all human beings equally
Noone will be preferred, noone ignored.

This is a simple way
How we all should treat us:
With respect, no better, higher
From man to man
With friendly words
They do not cost anything…

Believe what another person believes ?

 

 

How can a person believe
What another person believes or thinks?
Even when they know each other over years
None of them sits in each other
Noone knows him or her completely
Not his or her motivations, background
And only sees a tiny part…

How easy it is to judge, condemn…

Hurting people with prejudices
Is in fact a bumerang to oneself…
