Self-introspection


 

 

If we don’t look at ourselves in the mirror
To find the original reflection of it
Then we cannot see us either
Do not know who we are
What we are
Where we come from
Where we have to go…

Then the purpose of life
Is covered by our ignorance…

Man know thyself…

Truth is ONE


 

One is the truth
Is like the sun
Which embraces us
With her sun-races

Some feel more light
Other less…
We are the ones that separate us
From the sunlight in grades and shades

However, truth is ONE
Eternally and unchangeable
Is beyond time and space
Life and death

God is this truth
Silence of true life
Is light without shadows
Love without spots

Beyond the mind


 

When do we see
Not with eyes
Of mind
The truth?

When do we hear
Not with outer ears
The sound of love
The silence alive?

When do we taste
No longer pleasure, power
But food of light
The inner sight?

When do we smell
No longer profit, advantage
But sweet compassion
Fragrance of unity?

When do we feel
Divine touch
That all is one
The inner sun?

So let us share respect
Love for everyone
As all we are a ray
Of such a loving sun

So let us live the inner world
Beyond the mind and senses
And bring the light of oneness
Awakening of our hearts

The Teachings of the Masters (Man-making)

A man, according to the Science of Para-Vidya, is not entitled to be called a man in the true sense of the word, unless he has full knowledge, both theoretical and practical, of his distinguished position in Creation, his several component parts – body, mind and soul – in order of comparative importance, and of his relationship to the Unseen Power, called God, which is to be achieved while he is living on this earth. He who does not understand this much has not even been introduced to the first lesson and is yet to begin the Alphabet of Man The Saints, therefore, impress upon us the need for ‘Man-making’.

Satsang

When scientifically observed facts drawn from practice and experiment are explained verbally to a gathering by a Master Saint, it is called Satsang (external). This Satsang constitutes the theoretical side of the teachings; whereas the actual demonstration given to develop and achieve inner advancement is the practical part, called meditation or Satsang (internal). Conscientious practice brings fruit within days or weeks and it is not necessary to wait years for results, though progress also depends to some extent on one’s past background. A true Master gives a first-hand inner experience at the very first sitting. When the practical side is neglected due to lack of firmness or determination, carelessness or pressure of circumstances, scholars of many religious schools dwell more and more upon theory alone. The decline of the science then commences and man finds no solace. This is usually the case when a master leaves the body. Adequate provision however is made for the revival of this science in every age, when both the positive and negative powers commence their rounds again: the former through the agency of Master-souls, while the latter works through persons – so-called masters – who lack practical experience or are lost in theoretical disputations. Master-souls, though quite ordinary men in appearance, are a great deal more. Just as it is difficult for us to judge a scientist, a doctor or an engineer until they speak out or display their skill and knowledge, so too we cannot recognize the knowledge and authority of a Master until we have experienced the Divine Power working through Him.

In this science there is no secrecy or mystery. The objective is constructive and beneficial to all, and so the Saints have torn aside the curtain of secrecy which usually covers mystic teachings to make them available to each and every one who calls. There is an Unseen Power working through the Saints. Why this Power prefers to remain concealed from the human eye is a question to be asked directly by contacting the human pole through whom this Power is working. This is the only medium of approach to this Power. If we wish to use electric energy we must go to a switch or pole which will put us in contact with the powerhouse. The Unseen Power may be called a Sea of Love. When we wish to bathe in the sea, we go to the edge where the shallow waters begin and then say that we have bathed in the sea. Thus, to experience this Power and to derive benefit from it, we must go to the only source of contact – a Master Saint.

Separation and unity


 

When looking with the eyes of our mind
We see things from far united
If we look closer
All divides more and more
The deeper we look:
Outside: Separation

But when we look closer
With our spiritual eyes
All unites more and more
The deeper we look:
Inside: Oneness, Unity

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…

Broken mirror


Mind is like a mirror
That is broken
Into time and space
Into myriads of fragments

A broken piece sees broken pieces
Same identifies same
Duality recognizes duality
But still remains a fragment

To rise above duality
Is to bring together
All to be One
To lose the pain of separation

All stars come together
Spread its light
Beyond time and space
As One Sun of Love

Present Fate of Various Beliefs and Faiths

The dictionary defines mat as wisdom; but the colloquial meaning of the term is a sect or faith, a group of people holding certain opinions or beliefs in common. Such beliefs and opinions, however, based on stray knowledge and teachings, are not sufficient without the support of personal experience; and therefore the seeker is led astray by mere empty words. Many societies, faiths, and other religious circles have only a legacy of books, beliefs and theories to offer those who thirst after spirituality. They conceal their shortcomings and deficiencies behind a screen of warm welcome, an outpouring of technique and terminology, and the liberal use of sayings and quotations from the enormous mass of literature on the market today. Propaganda and acting and posing have taken the place of practical spirituality, with the result that the deluded public is being repelled from sacred books and thoughts of God. Atheism therefore is on the increase.

To believe in a thing or fact without troubling to investigate it does not in any way do credit to an intelligent man. On the contrary, it reflects adversely on his ignorance or credulity. Any belief not based on personal experience and verification of the facts has little value. The modern man wants a well-defined, clear cut science, capable of verification by his own experience and giving concrete results. We should therefore try to see and hear with our own eyes and ears rather than with the eyes and ears of others.

Self-Analysis

Man is composed of body, mind (intellect) and soul. We are extremely careful to develop ourselves physically and mentally, but understand very little about the soul, which is the power ruling both the body and the mind. Physical joys are not lasting, and there are limitations of body and mind that we cannot ignore; so we must search for the perennial source of joy and peace within ourselves. Self-analysis is the first step in this direction. Many doubts assail our minds at this stage. There is an Omnipotent Power called God, believed in, worshiped and talked about by most people. Can we know more about Him? Can we see Him and talk to Him? There is a definite and clear reply to these questions; the Master in a few brief words explains, “Yes, we can see and speak to Him; that is, if we become as exalted as He is said to be.” Masters say “Yes,” and we do not have to wait until death comes, but we can experience it right now. This is in consonance with laws of nature of which we have as yet no knowledge worth the name. All around us we see and feel that everything from the tiny atom to the mighty universe is governed by a law of nature. So, to the profound thinker, there is nothing chaotic, haphazard or uncertain about this universe and the laws which govern it. To gain any objective, there is a law of nature, a principle and method involved for checking, testing and weighing the result of our endeavours. So it is too in this science of nature, and similar methods can be traced in all religious scriptures by any careful student, though expressed in different words and various languages. We wish to enter the Kingdom of God; “but how?” we ask ourselves. “With the help and guidance of one who has himself entered and can guide us there,” is the simple reply from the Masters. “Is it possible?” “It is a knowledge which is as exact and sure as two and two make four,” is again their reply. It is not enough to be content with Holy Books and the singing of praises and hymns. We must strive for the same degree of advancement as the authors of the talks and knowledge recorded in these books achieved. Their experience must become our experience, for “what a man has done, a man can do”; of course, with proper help and guidance. We should stop at nothing short of this.

“We have hardly a dim spark of love for Him; will it help to cherish a hope?” is another question asked, to which the Saints reply, “It is sufficient to make you eligible for the Highest science of approach to Him.” This is a pleasing ray of hope. Oh! if this small spark could be kindled into a flame! Again, we say, “Jesus and other great Masters spoke so lovingly of Him, but we are sinners and there may not be much hope for us in this age.” The Masters’ soothing reply is, “No matter if you are the worst of sinners, stop where you are. There is hope for everybody, even in this crucial age.” Ages ago, nature provided for us materially and spiritually. Today the same unchangeable law is operating and will continue to do so in the future. There is food for the hungry and water for the thirsty. Nature’s inexorable and eternal law of demand and supply always works. It is only through a living Master that we can contact the Almighty God within us. In Sant Mat, contemplation of objects or images is not advised, as this is harmful to progress. Photographs of the Masters are for remembrance and recognition only, and on no account should we become attached to such external practices.

 

 

Love beyond words


 

Loud are our words
In need of audience
Reflection to oneself
Conditioned, self pleasing

Hearts whisper
Across time and oceans
Painting love
On empty papers

Fractions are playing
Drawing symbols
In the timeless ether
Yearning to be one

Words of love
Appear in the air
Convincing, inviting
Veiling its origin

Captured in dreams
At the banks of the mind
Breathing joy and happiness
Juggling feelings

Ready for the puzzle?
Where love is is not the drop
Where love is is not the ocean
Where love is, is…

Unity of Man – Sant Kirpal Singh


The intention of the movement Unity of Man is to inspire man by the ideal set by Sant Kirpal Singh:

 

Be good – Do good – Be one

 

It invites all to unite in order to find out about the spiritual base of human nature and to promote a spirit of oneness.

The name Unity of Man carries the core message of Sant Kirpal Singh:

This human birth is our chance to realize the great truth of the oneness of life
vibrating in the universe – Unity already exists, we only have forgotten it.

 

Respect for the whole creation and love and tolerance for each human being regardless of colour, creed or nationality are the practical shapes of this ideal.

There is one hope for the world, and this hope lies in the spiritual link from man to man and nation to nation. This genuine hope will bring us together.

The problems of the world are not of political, but of spiritual nature, so we have to find the solution on the spiritual level, on the level of consciousness.

The change will begin from man’s heart.
Harbhajan Singh

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

“Man! Know Thyself” – by Sant Kirpal Singh – Part 1


Dear friends,

In the coming days I am going to share with you in many smaller parts a very important subject: “Man know thyself!” – by Sant Kirpal Singh
which can be read also here:

May you all be blessed and happy.

M A N !   K N O W   T H Y S E L F

What ist the greatest study of man? Is it theology? I would say no. Is it knowing the law of Blackstone and other great men who came in the past? Even then the answer will be no. Is it the study of works of men like Shakespeare, Miltion, Dickens, Burns? No. Is it occultism or Buddhism or Christianity or Sikhism or any other social religion that we may study? Are such works the greatest aim of man’s study? Again I would say that the answer is no. Why?

If you become conversant with all the scriptures left by the Masters, what do they speak of? “Man, know thyself.” So, knowing man, both his outer and inner aspects, is the greatest study for us. The greatest study of man is man.

Sant Kirpal Singh

Since the beginning of creation, when the first flicker of self-awakening dawned on man, his attention has been more and more concerned with the problem of his own worldly existence and the investigation into the cause and source of all creation. For ages he has probed and queried in vain; but now at last his increasing thirst for knowledge is turning him to study the results achieved by others in the field. Ancient and modern sages asked, “What is that, the knowledge of which makes everything else known?” and in the same breath replied, “Knowledge of the higher self – the true man.” So the supreme knowledge is that which deals both in theory and practice with man’s true nature and his relation to God. It is in fact a natural science without hypothesis, subject neither to change nor time.

In ancient India it was called “Para Vidya” (science of realized truth or science of the beyond), and different denominations sprang up to interpret this knowledge. The term “Apra Vidya,” standing for preparation for achieving the knowledge of Para Vidya, was then introduced. This preparation consists of following an ethical and moral life, and the practice of concentration or meditation (in so many ways), both being indispensable for spiritual development. Man is constantly changing or introducing new names and terminologies to describe this science. The Masters were called “Sant,” and the nature of knowledge “Mat,” thus giving us the term “Sant Mat,” which is at present mostly used to name the Path of the Masters. Other terms, such as Shabd Yoga, Surat Shabd Yoga, Sehaj Yoga, are also used to describe the same science. In the Sanskrit language, the word “Sant” means a Master of the Highest Order; and “Mat” is a confirmed opinion or statement made by an adept after personal experience. The foundation of this science therefore is the result of critical study, minute investigation, and the life-long personal verification of facts based on practical experience of the Self in man. This experience of the Self is something that a competent Master is prepared to give to each individual who approaches him. Sant Mat, therefore, is the teaching, system, and path of the Saints.

The Masters do not attach any importance to names, designations, or the fact that many religious sects, groups and circles have claimed this science as their own and named it after their leaders or founders. They look upon these groups as schools where man – the noblest being in creation – can study with other men as children of one and the same Almighty Father. A Master (also called Sant Satguru) has complete mastery of both theory and practice, and is competent to impart both knowledge and experience to all sincere seekers after truth, without any distinction whatever of colour, caste or creed. Any man or woman, whether rich or poor, young or old, sage or sinner, learned or unlearned, who is able to grasp the theory of the science has a right to acquire this knowledge.

To be continued…

 

Know yourself – know God!


Everyone has in him, says a Saint, a pearl of priceless value, but as he does not know how to unearth it, he is going about with a beggar’s bowl.

The science of the soul

It is a practical subject and even to call it a religion of soul is a misnomer, for soul has no religion whatsoever. We may, if you like,call it the science of the soul, for it is truly a science, more scientific than all the known sciences of the world, capable of yielding valuable and verifiable results, quite precise and definite.

He who, by the power of the Word, finds himself can never again lose anything in the world.

By contacting the light and life principles, the primordial manifestations of God within the laboratory of the man body, we can virtually draw upon the “bread and water of life”, rise into cosmic awareness and gain immortality. This is the be-all and end-all of all religions, and embedded as we all are in the one Divinity, we ought to represent the noble truth of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. It is the living Word of the living God and has a great potential in it. It has been rightly said: “Man does not live by bread alone but by the Word of God.” And this Word of God is an unwritten law and an unspoken language. He who, by the power of the Word, finds himself can never again lose anything in the world. He who once grasps the human in himself, understands all mankind. It is that knowledge by knowing which everything else becomes known.

Man, know thyself

The only prerequisite for acquiring this spiritual treasure in one’s own soul is self-knowledge. This is why sages and seers in all times and in all climes have in unmis­takable terms laid emphasis on self-analysis. Their clarion call to humanity has al­ways been: Man, know thyself.

You will find all Masters gave that you must know yourself first, as self-knowledge precedes God-knowledge. The old Greeks had to say the same thing, “Gnothi Seauton”, “Know thyself!” The Upanishads say so, “Know thyself” and the Bible says, “Be still, and know that you are that.” So I mean to say there are findings of all Masters in all religions; and they have given out the same parallel thoughts, which are the same everywhere. God is to be realized.

Now the highest aim before us is to know God. All scriptures say so. But to know God, we have to know ourself.

How to know ourself?

By self analysis – by rising above body-consciousness. This physical body which is shaken off at the time of death – if we learn now how to leave the body, we will know we are not this body – we are the indweller of the body. We have got the astral body to work through the astral planes, and the causal body to work through the causal planes. If we just rise above all these, we know that “The father is working through me, and I am in the father.” “I and my father are one.”

Sant Kirpal Singh

You must know

You must know what you are, who you are.
You must know from where you came and how you came.
You must know your purpose of human life.
You must know all you did so far is fake and void.
You must know now you learn how to live and speak through life.
You must know your disease is within and remedy is within.
You must know all your questions are within and remedy is within.
You must know that still you need the help.
You must know your determination is a turning point in your life.
You must know you feel fully embedded with positive and potent thoughts.

Turning into…


 

 

When someone talks badly about you
Talk nicely about him

When someone thinks badly of you
Think well of him

If someone accuses you of making mistakes.
Emphasize his good qualities

If someone hates you
Embrace him with love

When someone criticizes you
Praise him

When someone is angry with you
Show compassion

When someone appears to be your enemy,
Treat him like a friend

If someone hurts you
Have gratitude

This is how a stone is transformed
Into a heart… into humanity…

Our inner anchor should be:
Peace, balance, love, humility
Compassion, kindness, non-violence – ONENESS

Overcome walls between us


 

We fight for differences
Erupt in hate, blind conflicts
Measure colours of skin
Within tight sights

Fight for good and better
Separate religions
Hide behind names
Dismember unity

Cultures and nations
Meet in fear, have no trust
Prepare for wars
Mankind’s annihilation

When do we see and learn
We are all human beings?

Let us create values of harmony
To live in peace and oneness

On the common level of a Human Being…

Well of the heart


 

Mind, self-reflecting sound
Hardly bears the silence
It comes with fear and doubts
Performing violence

In the well of the heart
The smile of sunshine always there
Is never far from you, apart
But comes with light and care

The mind may cry
To touch an empty wish
And feels so dry
Without the conquered dish

When mind is finally so still
It enters silent places
No longer in its will
But follows inner traces

So be in sunshine, not in doubt
Aware of inner voice
Embraced by light and sound
Without the worldly noise

By chance or intelligent design?


 

 

If life came into being
Just because by chance
Then all that is connected
With that chance
Is also connected by chance?
A row of millions of chances?

If spirit/consciousness came into being
Just because by chance
A reasoning falling together
In cause and effect
Without chain reactions?
A chance of the chaos?

Intellect, a product by chance?
Building ideas
Of thoughts and words
Linking them together
A flow of actions, reactions
Divine linkage

Every why has a reason
Every question a linking chain
So we want to find an answer:
Chaos by chance?
Or nothing is possible – by chance?…
But place our questions – on reasons…

Can, therefore, our questions about chaos and chance
Be put down without reasons – chaotically?…

When all is connected – there cannot be chaos…

Dreaming spirit


 

 

The spirit travels
Through the fairway
Of happenings, events
Temporal movements, currents
Of cause and effect
Parallel time travels
In a timeless continuum

Dreaming echos
Reflect the past
Keep memories alive
Roll like waves
Along with the spirit
Leading and seducing
In the game of time sequences

Yesterday will be tomorrow
Tomorrow today
And today yesterday
Possibilities flow
Walk, always renewing itself
Bear the reality
In the moment of eternal changes

Lead decisions
Draw our streets
Our life that passes by
Like a white sail
On the cosmic horizon
Let us dive
Into waves of worlds
Of millions of navigable waters

It’s not us who live –
We are lived
It’s not us who do –
We are done
The spirit dives into an awoken silence
Into the sea of endless possibilities…

Break in time and space


 

 

Seeing, living, hearing, feeling
Thought-wrapping, thought-peeling
To experience awareness of ourselves
In the middle between you and me
Division and opening
Dual, fragmented being
Consciousness, I-awareness
Cleavage of consciousness
Of time and space
Here and now
Dripping life
Wandering metamorphosis
A separate understanding
A look into the abyss of life:

Play of Illusion
In the dream of Oneness…

New rays of sunlight
Hope along the horizon
The morning is spreading
A change in the heart

Calls of seagulls
Announce the new day
Colour of unity
Golden beams of love

Old animosities vanish
In smiling open hearts
Turn into understanding
Handshaking sighs

Fights of differences
Learn to unite
Overcome old wounds
Space for a new world

A world of caring and sharing
With humans living peacefully
Together hand in hand
Under one roof:

One world
One universe
One Love
One God for all

Bond of service, mutual help
Overcome hate and greed

Let us widen our hearts
