Re: Meditation

 


Hi Ashok:
 
Simran is mostly a manas jap practice -- something done mentally. This has to be, as the goal of Sant Mat's meditation practice is to take one within and to transition from body to mind, and from mind to spirit.
 
Masters do say sometimes one can repeat the names out loud for a brief period at the beginning of one's meditation practice, perhaps for two to four minutes. One could do that if it helps establish concentration, helps begin as long as no one else can overhear you repeating the Names, as they are to be kept private. So any verbal use of the mantra Names is done at home or in some situation of solitude. 
 
There is a great chapter on Simran practice in this book, The Way of the Saints. 
 
 
Or it might be easier to read by downloading it as a PDF file:

"In every living being, from tiny plant up to man, the spiritual flame of life is struggling upward and onward toward its Source of Being, and this process and this struggle must go on until the last speck of dust returns to the central fires of Infinite Being." (Julian Johnson, Path of the Masters) 

 

"Men have journeyed to the physical moon, but they know nothing of the regions of the blissful music within themselves -- regions which lie beyond the moon, beyond the sun, beyond the most distant stars and galaxies." (George Arnsby Jones)

 

"No mission is of greater importance to a person than the awareness of his own consciousness, the profound significance and purpose of his existence on earth and to find out the path for ultimate bliss, eternal happiness and cheerfulness i.e. the quest for truth." (quote from the Shabd Pratap Ashram website)

 

“The world is a bridge. Pass over it, but do not build your dwelling there.” (Yeshua, Saying 200 — an inscription from a mosque at Fatehpur Sikri, India) It's parallel in the Gospel of Thomas reads: “Come into Being as you pass away.” (Saying 42)

 

"The person who adheres to the meditation on the Supreme Being, the Ultimate Reality, as outlined in this book by Satguru Kabir, will have the effects of his past life karmas, his present life karmas, and future life karmas, uprooted. (A devotee, through deep meditation, identifies with the Supreme Being that is beyond all karmas and their effects. Karmas operate at the level of the mind-body complex, not at the level of Spirit.)"  -- Brahmn Nirupan of Kabir

 

The Illusion of Being Trapped by Our Own Beliefs:

 

If we think that meditation practice is too difficult -- it's just too hard, that we aren't very good at it and can't possibly get better, get very far, so shall it seem to be for us. If we believe God to be millions of light-years distant and our spiritual experience will remain cold and uneventful, so shall it seem to be for us. If we're stuck with the impression that the way forward will never be clear and spiritual guidance is nowhere to be found, so shall it seem to be for us. If however, we come to know that we can have quality meditations beginning right now, and there is no reason why we can't make much progress on the spiritual path during this life, so shall this come to be our experience. As Kabir says:

 

 

"If you place the Guru at a distance from you, then it is but the distance that you honour [you are a worshiper of distance]: If indeed the Master be far away... When you think that He is not here, then you wander further and further away, and seek Him in vain with tears. Where He is far off, there He is unattainable: where He is near, He is very bliss. Kabir says: 'Lest His servant should suffer pain He pervades him through and through.' Know yourself then, O Kabir; for He is in you from head to foot. Sing with gladness, and keep your seat unmoved within your heart." -- Songs of Kabir, Rabindranath Tagore

 

"When a soul reaches the stage of a conscious co-worker in the Divine Plan, the burden of its karma of aeons past is lifted by the soul gaining knowledge and realization that the Lord is the Doer always... If the Lord is not contacted within, Naam ([the inner Light and Sound of God], which is pervading) is not manifested within; then the soul, being the doer, stands subject to the laws of cause and effect and birth and death. The Lord of Death, however, runs away from the sound of Naam vibrating. Through Naam, the coming and going in creation stops. The Master lifts the soul up and out of the realm and jurisdiction of Dharam Rai (Lord of Death) [the demiurge]... The full benefit of this human birth, this mortal form, is derived by following the teachings of the Master. All scriptures are within you - search them out. The Realized Soul is the means of that search; and always remember, Everything is in this house, nothing is outside; Those who seek without, go deeper into forgetfulness." (Kirpal Singh, excerpted from, WITHIN THIS MORTAL FORM)

The Gospel of Thomas Was Not Composed by Gnostics -- Audio Podcast of Spiritual Awakening Radio with James Bean: Some background today on The Gospel According to Thomas, the original discovery made at Oxyrhynchus, Egypt, and how this collection of the sayings of Jesus eventually became rebranded in the minds of some as a "Gnostic Gospel". There is discussion about the relationship between the Gospel of Thomas and adjacent texts (Q Source Gospel, four New Testament gospels, Gospel of the Hebrews, Gospel of Mary Magdalene, etc...), as well as about who quoted these "Thomasonian" sayings of Jesus in early Christianity.

The sincere seeker naturally may wish to discover a spiritual practice, to learn the techniques that make it possible for them to see and hear spiritually, to explore the realms of God. Yet, many are thwarted at every step by religious voices advocating only rituals and dogma, perhaps even declaring, "There is nothing more that can be experienced during this life". For some, the mystic way is not a lost tradition. There is a living path where such techniques are experienced and shared freely with all.

Today I dedicate this podcast to a vegetarian saying of Jesus found in the Syriac-Aramaic Gospel of Luke. There once existed a Jesus Movement where vegetarianism was the norm, and so the passage found in this old Luke manuscript is very much in harmony with a whole collection of such sayings attributed to Jesus, the Apostles, and some early church fathers. Today, an introduction to "Christianity Before Paul", the vegetarian disciples, their writings, their teachings about becoming an ethical vegetarian.

Rising Above, Hearing the Sound Current, and Entering the Kingdom of Heaven - Sant Mat Satsang Podcast With James Bean

 

An introduction to the spiritual practices of inner seeing and inner hearing, the way of Initiation into the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven. Today's presentation waxes poetic and draws upon the universal mystic tradition of the ages, East and West, and especially upon the wisdom of this living Path of the Masters in the world of today known as Sant Mat, a term meaning "The Way of the Saints", those master-souls acquainted with the worlds of within, dimensions and domains beyond, inner regions, higher planes, and heavens above, the top-most of which is the true, eternal, timeless, spiritual home of the soul, the Ocean of Love, All-Consciousness, and Divine Grace.

Resting in the Holy Sound, by Huzur Baba Sawan Singh (pictured above)

 

"Please devote some time daily without fail to Sound-practice and Repetition, as this is the only fruit of our life which we will take with us on leaving this world; whereas, even the kingships of this earth shall have to be abandoned when death overtakes us. Therefore, it is necessary that we should add to our spiritual wealth, which is the only thing to help us at the time of departing. And the only way to increase our spiritual power is by means of Sound-practice and Repetition. The greater our love for Holy Sound, the greater will be our peace of mind and spiritual progress. As far as possible, we should try to make the focus above the eyes, in the brain, our resting place. Just as a man, weary with the day's work, resorts to his home to take rest, so we habituate our soul, on being tired with worldly work, to take rest in the Holy Sound. The attention has to be brought inside, and when it likes to rest there, like the wanderer coming home, it will find peace within."

 

 

"In the Light of God which is called the Kingdom of Heaven the Sound is wholly soft, pleasant, lovely, pure and thin ... God, who is a Spirit, has by and through his manifestation introduced himself into distinct spirits, which are the voices of his eternal pregnant harmony in the manifested Word of his great kingdom of joy: they are God's instrument, in which his Spirit melodizes in his kingdom of joy; they are angels, the flames of fire and light, in a living, understanding dominion. If you should in this world bring many thousand sorts of musical instruments together, and all should be tuned in the best manner most artificially, and the most skillful masters of music should play on them in concert together, all would be no more than the howlings and barkings of dogs in comparison to the Divine Music, which rises through the Divine Sound and tunes from Eternity to Eternity."  (Jacob Boehme, German Mystic)

 

 

 


 

Gospel of Thomas Spiritual Studies: What the Eye Has Not Seen, and What the Ear Has Not Heard

 

New reflections on the Gospel of Thomas, a collection of the sayings of Jesus, a wisdom gospel of Yeshua, where its source material comes from, especially the use of the Gospel of the Hebrews in Thomas. There's an exploration of the possibility that both the author of Thomas and Paul in First Corinthians 2:9 quoted from the Gospel of the Hebrews. This podcast features commentaries on sayings one through five from the Greek Gospel of Thomas, especially concentrating on saying two along with the parallel version of the saying in the Gospel of the Hebrews, background on the original discovery of "The Sayings of Our Lord" made in 1897 at Oxyrhynchus, Egypt, also commentary on sayings twelve, seventeen, and twenty seven. I delve into the mystery of Tatian's Syriac-Aramaic Gospel Harmony and The Heliand (Saxon Gospel). I make use of apocryphal New Testament type texts, and writings from Syriac mystics associated with the Saint Thomas branch of Eastern Christianity. Then this lengthy deep dive into the Gospel of Thomas becomes a spiritual satsang discourse with selections from the teachings of Kirpal Singh on becoming an Initiate of the Mysteries of the Kingdom of the Heavens learning to rise above body-consciousness when "the eye becomes single" so that we may see "What the Eye Has Not Seen, and Hear What the Ear Has Not Heard".

"Look at God within yourself, how 'God is Light.'

For his Nature is a glorious, many-splendored Light.

He manifests the Light of his Nature to those

who love Him in all the worlds."

-- John of Dalyatha, Syriac Mystic

 

"Some time, therefore, after one has risen to the Sphere of Serenity, they will participate with God in the revelation of His Mysteries, and will in consequence see and hear everything there in a spiritual way, and their service and the glorification of their song will always be joined with those of the spiritual beings. Blessed is the one who has been found worthy of this gift and of this confidence, and seen this glorious Vision with the eyes of their mind, and heard with the ears of the heart the fine sound which, from the State of Serenity, is revealed to a spiritual person. Believe me truly when I say to you that whenever the mind hears the sound of the spiritual beings with its intelligible ears, all its work is performed high above the senses of the body and of its own faculties, which becomes silent and restful, as in sleep, through the happiness which it receives from the glorification of the spiritual beings." (from the mystical treatises of Joseph Hazzaya, also known as, Joseph the Visionary, translated from Syriac-Aramaic by Alphonse Mingana, in the book, Early Christian Mystics)

 

"What wonders has your love effected!

When someone is still alive

he has left this world:

though his bodily condition remains

with the world's bodily condition,

yet his spirit has been raised up towards You,

so that for a period of time

he is where he knows not,

being totally raptured and drawn towards You."

-- John of Apamea, in, from the Prayers of the Mystics section of:

"The Syriac Fathers On Prayer And The

Spiritual Life," translated from the original Syriac-Aramaic by

Sebastian Brock, Cistercian Publications

 

 

 


 

 

Kabir says:

 

It is the mercy of my true teacher [the Satguru]

 

that has made me to

 

know the unknown;

 

I have learned from Him how to

 

walk without feet,

 

to see without eyes,

 

to hear without ears,

 

to drink without mouth,

 

to fly without wings.

Adopting A Spiritual Way of Life This Time Through, During This Incarnation -- Satsang at Youtube and Wherever You Listen to Podcasts

"The highest form of religious practice is the creation of spiritual love within the heart. When the living flames of love have been removed from religious movements and sects, these become empty shells and miserable shams. Lasting love can only be attained at the lotus feet of a mystic adept, a living Godman. The teachings of such a saint will not ensnare the aspirant in a web of rites and ceremonies. He teaches only the practical evocation of the power of love that dwells within the soul." (George Arnsby Jones, The Mystic Adept: Love Incarnate)

"You have seen the external Gurus; now also behold the internal True Guru.

You have seen the external temples; now also see the internal True Temple.

You have read the external Shastras (holy books); now also read the internal True Shastra.

You have listened to the external Shabds; now also listen to the internal True Shabd (Divine Melody).

You have read the external Bani; now also read the internal True Bani.

You have recited the external Names; now also meditate on the internal True Nam (Word) which is constantly resounding by itself.

You have listened to the external Kirtan (Hymns); now also listen to the internal True Kirtan.

You have gained the external bookish knowledge; now also acquire the internal True Knowledge.

You have tasted the external Amrit (Nectar); now also drink the internal True Nectar of Immortality.

You have bathed at the external places of pilgrimage; now also bathe at the internal True place of Pilgrimage.

You have practiced the external sectarian worship; now practise the internal True Worship."

Waste of Life -- Mystic Verses of Sant Charandas (1703-1782)

"Understand, O people,

understand when I proclaim loudly:

no one will remain here forever --

all will have to depart in the end.

Caught up in attachment for your family,

you ignored the worship of the Lord

and thus wasted your opportunity.

You spent the day working and the night in sleep -

this is how you have passed your years.

Every minute of the day you have wasted in vain.

Not even for a moment

did you repeat the Lord's Name.

How then will you find bliss?

As a child you remained lost in play.

In youth you were intoxicated with yourself.

In old age you were beset with worry,

and sorrows robbed you of all joy.

Why are you lost?

Be vigilant!

Kaal is standing over you with his arrow aimed at you.

He will draw his bow, shoot poisonous arrows

and tie you up before you know it.

Give up your attachment to this false world

and repeat the true Name.

Says Charandas: Sukdev (Charan Das's Master) cautions you to

reflect on your own welfare!"

-- Saint Charandas

 



 

 

Excerpts from: Simran* Does Not Come Automatically To Us Unless We Develop That Habit, by Baba Ram Singh Ji

The first step on the ladder of devotion is gurubhakti -- or the devotion of the Master. And devotion of the Master does not mean that we take some incense or some candles and light them and do such outward rituals. The devotion of the Master is, basically, doing our meditation, doing our Simran and Dhyan, and doing seva at the feet of the Master. These are the first steps on the path of devotion.

The Names that have been given to us at the time of initiation are the names of the Lords of the planes in the higher regions. These are the Lords Who have never taken an avatar and come into this world and They are very pure Lords. So, taking Their Name and repeating that in our mind makes the mind also pure.

So, Simran is our first step on this ladder. Till we are able to do Simran to the level where it starts happening automatically in our mind, we will not be able to progress much on this Path. That is why Masters lay a lot of emphasis on Simran. And They say that you should do Simran when you're cooking food, or you're walking, or you're traveling, or doing anything in a routine. You should do as much Simran as possible. It is Simran only that will take the attention of the soul and get it out of the nine doors and bring it into the Tenth Door. So, Simran is a very important thing and till we become good at that, we will not be able to progress much within.

The mind is prone to doing simran of the world and it does not like to do the Simran of the Naam that has been given by the Masters. So, every time we sit for trying to do Simran, the mind pulls us outwardly. It takes time to do this.

Initially, we have to forcefully do it because the mind is used to going outward. We have to force it to sit and do Simran. And it is a slow process because of the habit of the mind. One cannot say whether it will take a certain number of days or a certain number of months or years. But it takes a bit of time for the mind to get accustomed to this.

Initially, we repeat the Names with the tongue; and, silently, we repeat Them in the mouth with the tongue. Because we are used to repeating that way, it comes more easily to us. But later, we start repeating the Names in the mind. That is called jap. So, initially, this is done with the mouth, then consciously with the mind.

And then, when it becomes automatic in the mind, it is called ajapa. So, once the mind starts doing it automatically, then we will get successful and we will be able to quickly go within.

Therefore, we should try and spend more and more time doing Simran.

Swami Ji Maharaj warns us and awakens us, saying, "Our treasure is getting depleted with every breath, the biggest treasure that we have in this life is the treasure of the number of breaths that we can take in this life. And with each breath, we are losing and depleting that treasure."

It is said that we will lose about 21,600 breaths every day -- we take about fifteen breaths in a minute. And that way, in the whole day, nearly 21,600 breaths are lost to us from our current lifetime.

If we look back and think it through, then every minute we are losing fifteen breaths, and in a day, we are losing 21,600 breaths. Considering that, if we look at six months back or one year back, what is our remaining age today? If we look back, we should see how much breath we have just thrown away.

Kabir Sahib says, "Beating a drum, I say this repeatedly. With each breath, you are losing the value of three worlds."

God Almighty has given you this lifetime and given you this precious opportunity, and this is the opportunity for you to get out of this ocean of life. Now, if we waste this in our mundane activities...

God sits in this human body and He has provided this opportunity to get a salvation and go back to Him. Now, if we have wasted this opportunity, we have wasted that opportunity that God Almighty Himself has created for us.

This Simran is given to you by True Masters. You should practice that Simran and focus at the Eye Center. The Masters have given it as the Simran for us to do. We have to do this Simran, and when we do that, we go to the Eye Center.

Once we are at the Eye Center, we manifest the Form of the Master and, with the Grace of the Master, the Sound Current is also manifested...

The Master Who has given you the initiation is waiting for you to come to the Eye Center. That much duty is ours. We have to go to the Eye Center following His instructions. After that, the Master will take you further...

By doing Simran you manifest the Form the Master within. And once you have manifested the Master within, He will always be there with you, every second. And then, the Sound Current, which is resonating at the Eye Center, will take you further up. And on the Path from one Sound Current to the other Sound Current, it will take you back to God Almighty.

Once you have manifested the Radiant Form of the Master within, then He extends His Grace to you. And all that you require, He takes care and fulfills all the things that you want, and He is always there with you -- whether you go to America or you go to India or anywhere -- He is always with you.

One of the proofs that our Simran is being done correctly is that, in any kind of difficulty, we first remember Simran. When we are facing some difficulty -- even in a dream state -- and we start remembering our Simran and we start doing Simran in that state, then you can say that your Simran is now on the right path and you are doing it correctly.


-- Excerpts from: Simran Does Not Come Automatically To Us Unless We Develop That Habit, a Satsang Discourse by Baba Ram Singh Ji

 

 

 

* A Note About Simran – The Power of Repeating God’s Name


Repeating a Name (or Names) of God with love and devotion, called in the east "Simran", "Manas Jap", or "Zikhr," is one of the key spiritual exercises used to cultivate love for God and to invoke the Positive Power in our daily lives, making it possible to live a life of love. Simran is a mental repetition of a Name of God done during meditation, and this spiritual practice is also done during available moments throughout the day and night as a way to remember God all the time. Says Sant Tukarama:

 

"Such is God’s Name

that it heals the disease of the world.

Whosoever repeats the Lord’s Name

while engaged in earthly duties,

remains ever in a blissful state of divine communion.

One absorbed in the Lord’s Name, O Tuka,

has truly attained liberation while living."

 

This spiritual exercise of repeating God’s Name helps to uplift our day, to bring some of the heaven and bliss of meditation into our down-to-earth daily experience, and is a way to remember in a world of forgetfulness, to remain awake in a world of spiritual slumber, to abide in Truth, no longer dominated by the forces of illusion. Be who you really are wherever you go. ////////

Simran Is The First Step In Sant Mat

 

Simran is the art of repeating a name or names of God in one's mind (manas jap, guru mantra) for the purpose of Remembering the Divine -- Practicing the Presence of God. It is a way to remain spiritually awake in a world of slumber, a way to remain centered instead of being thrown off-center by the influence of maya (illusion). In the Path of the Saints and Mystics this spiritual exercise of repeating or chanting Names of God is done not only in meditation practice, but as often as possible throughout the day as a way to spiritualize all aspects of life, inner and outer. Baba Ram Singh on Simran:

 

"So, when you are here, you should do Simran* as much as possible, while you are walking, while you are eating, and while going about your other work. And with this, you will get the Grace of Baba Ji. Because, when we do Simran like this and then when we sit for meditation, it is the Simran, which we have done the day long, that helps us at the time of meditation. If we are not doing Simran, then our mind is scattered, and all the other things then affect our meditations. So, we should spend as much time as possible and maximize our Simran. We should focus our attention towards Simran. Simran is the first step in Sant Mat, and it is only with Simran that we leave out the nine doors and come to the Tenth." (Baba Ram Singh Ji, from the satsang discourse, Simran Is The First Step In Sant Mat)

 

*Simran [Remembrance]: "Repetition of names or thoughts; in Sant Mat, the simran of worldly thoughts is controlled through the Simran of the Five Charged Names, repeated by an initiate throughout the day and when sitting for meditation as a means of collecting the thought currents at the Third Eye Center; also used as a password of sorts to higher planes and protection from Negative Power influences." (Glossary in the discourses of Baba Ram Singh)

 

 

 

 

Give Priority To Your Meditation (from a Satsang Discourse of Baba Ram Singh Ji)

 

THE PATH OF SANT MAT is the path of love and affection. Mahatmas have been explaining that the soul is a form of love and the Master is also a form of love. God Almighty Himself is a form of love. And the Path of going back to God Almighty is also a form of love. But ever since the soul has separated from God Almighty and has got engulfed in the net of Kal and Maya, it has separated from God Almighty and has manifested itself in the form of Kal and Maya here.

 

So, that same love, which has manifested in the outward pursuits of Kal and Maya here, if we are able to inwardly direct that same love and affection, then we can move within at great speed and velocity.

 

Therefore, our love and affection have to be prioritized. And, oftentimes, we prioritize all of the other things, all of our mundane activities, and other things. And because we have a love and affection for those things, we prioritize those and we say, "Okay, after we have finished all of those activities, we will sit for meditation." And then, sometimes we sit for meditation; sometimes we do not sit for meditation. And that's how our meditation gets affected.

 

So, if you have love and affection for your Master, then you will prioritize that love and affection for giving priority to your meditation first.

 

It is, therefore, incumbent on a disciple, once he has been initiated, to prioritize his meditation. He should always keep that to the forefront and do his meditation first, and then all of the other activities should follow that.

 

And why do we do this meditation? It is so that we get free from this ocean of life and death and we rid ourselves from this illness of life and death. And that is the technique -- that is the trick -- that the Master has taught us. That is what we should do -- and do it with a priority.

 

 


 

 

The Ladder Of The Sound Current Connects The Soul Back To God Almighty

 

Ever since God has created this whole Creation and has created the human body and human form, He has created the Path to go back, for the soul to go back, and meet God Almighty within the human form. This is not a Path created by any Mahatmas. It is a Path created by God Almighty Himself. It is a natural law that has made this. On the same Path, Saints have gone and met God Almighty with the Grace of Their Masters. And, on the same Path, we can also go with the Grace of our Masters and meet God Almighty.

 

There is one Sound Current emanating from God Almighty coming down, but there are five planes in-between. And each plane, where the Sound Current traverses, it makes a different sound.

 

So, this ladder of Sound Current is there connected within, and each step we take, each plane we cross, that same ladder is connected internally. The same Sound Current gets connected and goes back to God Almighty. It is on the Sound Current only that the soul rides and goes back to God Almighty, all which are connected within.

 

But, to manifest this Sound Current within, we have to take the help of Simran and Dhyan and we have to concentrate our attention, we have to focus our attention from outside, within. And that is how we will get to manifest the Sound Current within.

 

Our mind is scattered in outward, worldly thoughts. And it is continuously in the repetition of these thoughts, which are all outwardly drawn. And that is why the mind is also outwardly drawn. By doing the Simran of the Naam given at the time of initiation, we repeat that and the mind starts getting focused, and its attention gets focused within.

 

When we sit for meditation, we close our eyes and then we focus our thoughts at the back of the Eye Center. And our faculty of visualization is also there, which also visualizes the Form of the Master within. And by doing Simran, we concentrate our attention and focus at the back of the Eye Center. Then, automatically, when we sit for meditation, our attention starts getting focused on the Form of a Master at the back of the Eye Center.

 

There are the rishis and munis who also do meditation. But their meditation and their focus and attention are slightly different. Instead of focusing at the back of the Eye Center, what they do is, they start focusing on the chakras.

 

So, in the physical body, we have six chakras. And starting from the lowest chakra, they start doing the mantra. Each chakra has a mantra, and what they do is, they repeat the mantras. And, when a certain number of times that mantra is done, tens of thousands of times, then that chakra opens up. And, that way, they start progressing by opening each of these chakras and going inside and up within their body. So, for them to take and open each of the six chakras and then the seventh above that and go up, inside, it takes a very, very long time.

 

Mahatmas say that when someone has to climb a mountain and he is midway, standing on the mountain, there is no point in going down to the bottom of the mountain and then climbing all the way up again. Instead, he should climb upwards from where he is.

 

So, the soul is currently situated at the back of the Eye Center. And, therefore, Saints say that you start from there. You start focusing there and focus your attention where the soul and the Master stay. That is at the back of the Eye Center.

 

So, therefore, we should lovingly focus our attention and do the Simran and the Dhyan, that is, the contemplation of the Form of the Master while doing Simran at the back of the Eye Center. When we do this lovingly, we also start getting the Grace of the Master there.

 

* * * 

 

So, this morning time is good. We have woken up. Our mind is fresh and it is quiet. A quiet mind is good for meditation. So, we should close our eyes and get connected to Simran and Dhyan.

"Look at God within yourself, how ‘God is Light.’ For his Nature is a glorious, many-splendored Light. He manifests the Light of his Nature to those who love Him in all the worlds…" -- John of Dalyatha, Syriac Mystic

 

 


 

 

Ode 12: The Truth, the Word or Sound of the Logos, and the Aeons... the Cosmic Worlds

 

The Word of Truth filled me,

and in order that I might speak it.

And like the flowing of water,

truth flowed from my mouth,

and my lips declared its fruits.

And it increased in me it's Gnosis,

because the true Word is the

mouth of the Lord

and the gates of his Light.

And the most high gave the Word to his Aeons,

the interpreters of his beauty,

and the narrator's of his glory,

and the confessors of his thought,

and the revealers of his mind,

and the teachers of his works.

For the swiftness of the Word is indescribable,

and like its narration, so are its

swiftness and sharpness,

and its course is Limitless.

For it is the Light and dawning of thought.

And the Aeons spoke to one another by the Word

and they acquired speech,

those who were silent.

And from its was friendship and Harmony,

and they spoke, one to another by it.

And they were goaded by the Word

and knew him who had made them,

because they were in Harmony.

Because the mouth of the Most High

spoke to them,

For the dwelling place of the Word is man,

and it's truth is love.

 

(excerpted from the more 'Gnostic' Lattke translation of the Book of the Odes)

 

ODE 12 sounds almost like it was composed by the same folks behind the Gospel of John and other John community texts.

Light and Sound on the Path: May You Always Find Genuineness in What's Presented Here As We Explore A Spiritual Path Called Sant Mat

 

 

 


 

 

This Light 

 

Astonishing, this light, so different -- 

even with eyes closed you see it.

It was never lit, nor does it ever go out

-- the luminous soul makes it shine eternally.

No colour yet all colours,

this light is illumined by life itself.

Nila says, Today God in his grace

used my offering of the lamp of devotion

simply as an excuse

to let me experience this light.

 

-- Niloba of Maharashtra

 

 

 


 

 

Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram Bahadur: "If someone's mind is inordinately attracted towards some particular worldly affairs, or towards some particular person, or entertains strong feelings of enmity or grudge against anyone, then also he will have little love in the Holy Feet of the Supreme Being, and for this reason, his mind will not apply itself to devotional practices, and he will find little pleasure in them. To sum up, therefore, a true satsangi should as far as possible, detach himself [or herself] from worldly affairs every day, and should increase his love and attachment in the Feet of the Supreme Being. The extent to which his mind gets relieved of worldly attachments, is love in the Feet of the Supreme Being will increase and the bliss of Bhajan and Dhyan [meditation including inner Sound Meditation] will also be felt in a greater degree, and he will experience internally greater Daya [Grace]."

 

 


 

 

Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar: "The Lord thoughtfully spoke this word to Dariya: 'Boundless indeed is My Naam. Let one hold fast to Naam with one-pointed attention -- Kal [lord of time and illusion, the negative power] can never go near such a person. Let one merge one's attention into Naam while standing or sitting, and let one direct one's love to the Divine inner sight. If one bears the Satguru's imprint, his authentic passport and his spiritual coin for transaction, one will certainly go across the ocean of the world (samsara). Such a one discards the deception of gods and goddesses and, being engaged in the true practice [surat shabd yoga], is steeped in the Lord's love [bhakti]. Giving up delusion, he endearingly holds fast to the Beloved, nurturing the true love obtained from the Satguru. While standing or sitting he thinks of the Lord and remains absorbed in the Sound Current. He takes shelter under the Truth and thus brings Kal to defeat.'" (Book of Gyan Deepak)

 

 

 


 

 

Beyond the Material Five Senses are Subtle Spiritual Senses: Spiritual Seeing, Spiritual Hearing, etc...: "Since the exterior senses, by hearing, by sight, by the sense of smell and of touch, are not able to search out the innermost mysteries of the natures, on this account God conceals within the inner members a nature having senses more subtle than all the bodies. Now because of the subtleness of its stirrings, this nature searches out the hidden wisdom of the things created by the Lord of all." (John the Solitary, "John the Solitary On the Soul", Syriac mystic -- I have a great fondness for the depth of the Syriac mystics)

 

 

 


 

 

"Within This Body" --

Mystic Poem of Sant Tulsi Sahib

 

Within this body

breathes the secret essence.

Within this body

beats the heart of the Vedas.

Within this body

shines the entire Universe,

so the saints say.

Hermits, ascetics, celibates

- all are lost

seeking Him

in endless guises.

Seers and sages perfectly parrot

the scriptures and holy books,

blinded by knowledge.

Their pilgrimage,

and fasting,

and striving

but delude

Despite their perfect practice,

they discover no destination.

Only the saints

who know the body's heart

have attained the Ultimate, O Tulsi.

Realize this, and you've found your freedom

(while teachers trapped in tradition

Inner Sound Meditation Leading to Anami Oneness: "The ascension of the soul in the reverse direction of flow of streams of sounds can thus be compared to the swimming of fishes. Hence the Yoga of Sound has also been referred to as "mina marg" (mina meaning fish and marg meaning path). Thus, climbing further and further, leaving all the five spheres behind one after another, the soul finally transcends even the domain of the Quintessential Unstruck Sound and merges into the 'Anami' (Nameless/Soundless) or 'Kaivalyatita' (beyond Kaivalya or the Conscious) State to be one with [merge with] the Supreme Godhead, to be God Himself. Thus yoga or union or bhakti (devotion) gets completed."

 

-- Swami Achyutanand Baba, The Yoga of Inner Light and Sound

 

 

 


 

 

Excerpts from a Satsang Discourse by Baba Somanath Commenting on Verses of Soamiji Maharaj  (from Sar Bachan, Bachan 19, Shabd 13)

 

Soamiji Maharaj: "The Guru says all the world is blind. No one grasps the secret of the inner way."

 

Baba Somanath: "This is the bani [hymn] of Param Sant Satguru Hazur Swami Ji. He says that all the world is blind. Why? In the beginning, the Almighty Lord put the Path to meet Him within us and then He sent us into this world. And if that inner eye opens, then we will reunite with the Lord. But through millions of yugas [vast epochs of time] and incarnations, we have been running outward. Lord Kal [the negative power] has placed the curtain of mind and Maya [illusion] over the soul and has cast it into the outer world. And becoming extroverted, the soul is always hurrying forward, never looking back to realize the True Home that it left so long ago."  

 

Soamiji Maharaj: "Everyone is wandering outside aimlessly.  No one catches hold of the Shabd [Sound] within."

 

Baba Somanath: "It is just like the water and the waves. Our entire lifespan is consumed counting the waves. Millions of yugas have passed in this way. But what is the nature of a wave? It is composed of water. But if we are under the illusion that the wave is something substantial in itself, if we forget the wave is only water, if we think of the wave as something separate from the water, then we do not understand its real nature.

 

"In the same way, all the jivas [souls], becoming infatuated with the pleasures created by mind and Maya, rush about in the external world and waste their allotted span of life. Under this illusion, the jiva says, 'Who is equal to me? What shortcoming is there in me?' We may think this, we may think that, but when the breaths finish what remains? Only a heap of earth, nothing more. We have become so identified with this heap of earth that we think it is our true self. And in our ignorance, we assert: 'Who can compare with me?'"

 

Soamiji Maharaj: "The Guru proclaims ceaselessly: 'Search for the Shabd within.'"

 

Baba Somanath: "The Satguru constantly tries to make us understand. What does He tell us? 'Brother, take your mind away from the disturbance of this world, from 'I and mine,' from enjoying the sense pleasures, and fix it within at the point between the two eyes [third eye]. When the mind becomes concentrated, that Inner Power will call you of itself. That Power is the Sound Current, the Word, the Akash-bani (Etheric Sound). Concentrate your attention on that Sound Current -- do not look this way and that."

 

Soamiji Maharaj: "Only some rare worthy one stands firm on the support of the Master's words."

 

Baba Somanath: "As soon as the rare, worthy disciples hear the Guru's words, they take them to their hearts.  The instant they hear those words they act upon them. But the unworthy disciples take the Guru's words as ordinary and carelessly discard them.

 

"Who are the worthy disciples of the highest order? 'They meet with the True Guru if emancipation is written in their destiny.'  Whoever has once attained the inner darshan [vision] of the perfect Satguru, whoever has learned the inner secret, their work is accomplished. This is the highest grade of worthy disciple. Such a disciple is like the pearl oyster who swims to the surface of the water and opens its mouth to receive the raindrops that fall during the swati nakshatra. As soon as it catches that swati raindrop, it closes its mouth, and from that drop, it creates the priceless divine pearl in its within.

 

"So, Swami Ji Maharaj says that as soon as those rare worthy disciples hear the Guru's words, they mold their lives according to His instructions. They act on His words and do not allow their minds to wander here and there. They never listen to the advice of the mind."

 

Soamiji Maharaj: "Everything of the world appears flawed and false.  Only the devotion to the Guru is True."

 

Baba Somanath: "Those souls who remain absorbed in the Naam day and night regard the world as a debased place. They understand the bonds that keep us shackled, and they see clearly the nets that Kal has spread. Now our love and affection for this outer world is so strong that we cannot leave it, so how can our love become attached to the Lord? Love is only way. Either you can attach it to the Naam, or you can attach it to the world.

 

Soamiji Maharaj: "Going into the shelter of Radhaswami [Lord of the Soul], the jiva swims across the ocean of existence."

 

Baba Somanath: "Whoever does the practice of Surat and Shabd* will cross over the ocean of existence."

Light and Sound on the Path: If Your Eye Be Single, Your Whole Body Shall Be Full Of Light

 

 

 

 

 

 

Podcast: The Sermon on the Light -- If Your Eye Be Single, Your Whole Body Shall Be Full Of Light: I begin by sharing this unique arrangement of passages on the theme of spiritual-mystical Light attributed to Jesus found in all of the available ancient texts. I call it, "The Sermon on the Light", since it really does read, and when said out loud, sounds like a spiritual discourse on the theme of Light spoken long ago in antiquity by a spiritual Master to some of his students. Also today, a discourse on how to find your third or single eye. "If your eye be single, your whole body shall be full of Light."

Satsang Discourses from: Sawan Singh, Baba Somanath, Baba Ram Singh, and Kirpal Singh

 

 

"Love enables us to feel a kinship with all life on earth -- to feel that all are children of the same benevolent Father. All jealousy and 'otherness' disappear from the heart as soon as love comes in. Love is the path of complete self-sacrifice and giving one's heart away. Love is a constant and everlasting pull. A heart in which love has made a permanent abode is no longer subject to the mutations of time. It is free from transmigration. It is always enraptured with the ever-abiding sweetness of love. Love is a bond which can neither be loosened nor severed. Love is the vital sustenance of the world -- the life sap of our very existence. It is the foundation of purity and simplicity. Without it the world would be an abandoned wasteland. It is the vital essence that keeps our life flourishing and prosperous." (Hazur Baba Sawan Singh, My Submission)

 

 

 

 

"Until you understand the Truth, love will not enter your heart. And until the love manifests within you, that Almighty Lord, who is love personified, will not meet you.  A friendship is formed when the love of the Lord and the love of the soul become one, both without and within. When your within overflows with love, then that Loving Power will be attracted to you.  He will become your Friend." -- Baba Somanath Ji

 

 

 

 

Satsang And Meditation Are The Nutrients Of Our Soul, Spiritual Discourse by Baba Ram Singh (in the lineage of Baba Somanath and Huzur Baba Sawan Singh)

 

Santji would often say this, "Leave a hundred things and go and attend the Satsang. And leave a thousand things and sit for meditation." Because this is the true work for which God Almighty has given us this body.

 

All the other things that we are doing, we do for others. Whether it is nurturing of our children, it is for the children. Whether it is working in employment or farming or for a business, it is for that particular occupation or service or business. So, all of the things that we are engaged in is all work being done for others.

 

So, what is the work that we are really doing for ourselves for which we have been sent into this world?

 

Satsang and meditation are the nutrients of our soul.

 

Sant Ji used to often say, "Like we give food to the body, it is very important for us to give food and water for the soul."

 

So, the Satsang that we listen to is the water that we are giving to the soul and the Bhajan Simran that we are doing is the food that we are giving to the soul. When we give this food and water -- the Satsang and Bhajan Simran -- to the soul, the soul becomes stronger and the mind becomes weaker.

 

On the contrary, when we do our outward things, then the mind becomes stronger and the soul is becoming weaker. So, it is very important for us to give proper food and water to the soul.

 

It is very important for us to listen to Satsang every day and sit for meditation and do our Simran Dhyan Bhajan every day. Whenever we work out a schedule for the day, we should always prioritize our meditation and keep that first on the schedule and complete our meditation. And, only then, get on with the other duties.

 

We do the opposite. We usually give time for every other thing and then, if we have some spare time, we give it for meditation or Simran. And we often forget our Simran and meditation.

 

Now, when we do like this, mind becomes stronger, and then it takes us away from all of this.

 

As to why we do not do our meditation and we do not listen to Satsang regularly, it is because we do not have faith -- adequate faith -- in it. We do not have that much love and affection for our Master and for our Bhajan Simran. We are manifested completely outside. So, we are identifying ourselves with everything outside. We have complete faith in what we see outside and we have our full love and affection for everything that we are doing outside. And that is why we are not able to sit and do that meditation regularly and listen to Satsang regularly.

 

When we make it a habit of sitting regularly for our meditation and we make it a habit to listen to Satsang every day, then slowly, our mind will become weaker and we will be able to spend more time doing our meditation. And we will start enjoying that meditation more.

 

So, we should make it a part of our schedule, our daily schedule, and we should prioritize our Bhajan Simran and keep that as the first thing in the schedule. By doing that, our love and affection will grow towards our Master and towards Naam and meditation. And we will start, more and more, enjoying it and doing it.

 

So, the atmosphere is very quiet and nice and we should make the most of this. We should close our eyes and sit for our meditation.

 

(Morning Meditation Talk, Aug 8th, 2018, Guddella Ashram, Andhra Pradesh)

 

 

 

 

"Meditation is the process of withdrawing the attention from the world outside, and focusing it at the seat of the soul in the body, behind and between the eyebrows. This point is known as the inner eye, third eye, the single eye... In order to withdraw our attention and focus it on this point, mind must be controlled and stilled. Sit in one pose, and move not your head, limbs or eyes. Sit straight but relaxed with no tension in the body below. Sit still, please. Close your eyes as in sleep, and look sweetly, lovingly, intently into the middle of the darkness lying in front of you. You will see a dark veil. That which sees the dark veil within, without the help of your physical eyes, is the inner eye." -- Kirpal Singh

 

"True discipleship does not start until one has risen above body consciousness." -- Kirpal Singh

 

"He who has once been initiated by a competent Master is assured, once and for all, his liberation from the bondage of mind and matter; it is but a question of time. The seed of spirituality sown in him is bound to sprout and fructify. The spirituality when awakened and the spiritual experience gained must develop, and the Master Power cannot rest contented until the child owned is reared and taken home to the house of the Father.

 

"Man has got himself so enmeshed in mind and the outgoing faculties that his release from them can only be brought about by struggle and perseverance. His plight is, in a way, similar to that of a bird that has been kept in a cage for so many years. Even if you should open the door of the cage, the bird will be loathe to fly out. Instead, it will fly from one side of the cage to the other, clinging with its talons to the wire mesh, but it does not wish to be free and fly out through the open door of the cage.

 

"Similarly, the soul has become so attached to the body and the outgoing faculties that it clings to outside things and does not wish to let go of them. It does not wish to fly through the door that has been opened by the Master at the time of Holy Initiation, at the threshold of which the Radiant Form of the Master is patiently waiting to receive the child disciple. True discipleship does not start until one has risen above body consciousness." -- Sant Kirpal Singh Ji

"Go on regularly with your [meditation] practice, keeping your mind and senses undisturbed as far as possible; and trust in the mercy of the Supreme Father to grant you strength gradually as you advance. You will progress inward daily.

 

"Merciful Radhasoami [The Lord of the Soul] was also pleased to declare that whenever anybody is initiated into the Surat Shabd Marga, his contact is immediately established with Sat Purusha Radhasoami. Hence, Sat Purusha Merciful Radhasoami would continue to shower his grace on everyone who would sincerely perform the practices to some extent with feelings of love and would not indulge in the evil tendencies of his mind as far as possible, i.e. He would gradually make the mind and the spirit of such a devotee ascend higher and higher internally and would protect him from the obstacles put by Maya and Kal.

 

"The morning time will be the best for you to practice Bhajan [meditation upon the Sound Current].

 

"Go on with your practice as much as you can and the Supreme Father, through His mercy, will gradually help you in the purification of the mind; and the devotional practice will then become easy and pleasant; but this cannot be accomplished soon and therefore patience and trust should be adhered to.

 

"If you remember the Supreme Father by practising devotion and by sometimes repeating the Holy Name you will find that Grace won’t forsake you, but on the other hand will always extend its protection to you in all matters." (Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram Bahadur)

The focus of the bhakti Saints of India (Santmat, RadhaSoami, The Path of the Masters) is not on constructing earthly temples, building organizational structures, or temples of the mind. Rather, they guide their students into entering the Temple of the Spirit. The Portal or Doorway to this Temple is within, at the Third Eye Center. Masters say: "An intense longing to meet the Supreme Lord during one's lifetime is the first and foremost qualification for Initiation. 'Seek, and ye shall find', is the principle'". Being properly initiated into the secrets of meditation -- the Mysteries of the Kingdom of the Heavens (deeksha/diksha) -- by a living Master is the beginning of the Inward Journey. Then, go and do the meditation.

"Keep on repeating the Lord's Name continuously in the proper way as explained by the Guru with love and faith, says Tulsidas. Good fortune shall be yours today, tomorrow and forever." (Sant Tulsi Das)

 

 

"Soul is a conscious entity, a drop of the Ocean of All Consciousness, and in its miniature capacity carries all the divine attributes of Godhood. Since it is environed by mind and matter, it has lost its heritage and forgotten its origin, the True Home of the Father. The Masters come to our help, to awaken us from this long slumber of ignorance."  (Kirpal Singh)

 

“We should do a lot of Simran and Bhajan, and we should also do Simran in other times when we are free. And, with this, we should try to rise as fast as possible to the Tenth Door. By doing Simran and by doing devotion we will get the Grace of the Master.

 

"Therefore, Nanak Ji in this bhajan* has said, “This whole world and all that we see is an illusion… We should move our attention and our love and devotion from here, and take it to the Feet of the Masters.” We should make the most of this priceless time and opportunity that has been given to us.

 

"So, morning time is good for us. We have woken up. The mind is fresh. So, we should use and make the most of this time and do our Simran and Dhyan. So let us close our eyes and sit for meditation.” (Baba Ram Singh)

 

 

A note about “God” in Santmat, by James Bean

 I kinda like the old-timey Greek description of “The One”. It refers to a Supreme Being but socially distances from those Greek gods and goddesses of mythology that represent the anthropomorphizing of various powers of nature, or a bearded god sitting on a throne presiding over some tribe somewhere. The One is I think a better way of conceiving of a Supreme Being, and in this approach souls represent shards or sparks or drops from The One according to the various schools of mysticism: Kabbalah, Sufism, Gnosticism, and the living school of mysticism called Sant Mat. The theological term for devotion to the Formless God in the east is Nirguna Bhakti, a belief which isn’t so far from the Buddhist concept of Nirvana, a Divine State above the material plane that is timeless. So a bit like Einstein’s God of Spinoza. But beyond merely a collection of natural laws working in the universe, The One or the State of Nirvana is not so cold, distant and mechanical, but is really a unified state of Consciousness behind-beyond-but-also-within the cosmos. I prefer most of all the term Anurag Sagar, meaning Ocean of Love, as the most accurate characterization (and as experienced by meditators), and is a much warmer description than that of Spinoza’s god or the god of the Deists (as in Deism).

 

 

"The whole creation is sustained by God who is not a distant Deity but closer is He than anything else."  (Kirpal Singh)

 

 

A podcast listener asked me: “Is there anything God can not do?” My reply: I would say the thing that God can not do, or does not wish to do, is not violate the free will of souls. All have the power to choose in every plane of creation, even in the heavenly realms. All souls are free to choose their degree of oneness/closeness/nearness or distance from God. Even in the higher levels of Sach Khand, souls may remain separate spirit-entities  (Sat Lok), or try out merging into God temporarily (Alakh Lok) and then revert back again to an individualized state, if they wish. There is freedom to choose, even at that level. Love allows.

 

 

Kabir says: The only woman awake is the woman who has heard the flute!

 

"O friend, awake, and sleep no

more! The night is over and gone,

would you lose your day also?

Others, who have wakened,

have received jewels;

O foolish woman! you have

lost all whilst you slept.

Your lover is wise, and you are

foolish, O woman!

You never prepared the bed of

your husband:

O mad one! you passed your

time in silly play. Your youth was passed in

vain, for you did not know

your Lord;

Wake, wake! See! your bed is

empty: He left you in the

night.

Kabir says: "Only she wakes,

whose heart is pierced with

the arrow of His music."

-- Kabir, Songs of Kabir, Tagore

 

 

"What wonders has your love effected!

When someone is still alive

he has left this world:

though his bodily condition remains

with the world’s bodily condition,

yet his spirit has been raised up towards You,

so that for a period of time

he is where he knows not,

being totally raptured and drawn towards You."

 

– John of Apamea, Prayers of the Mystics section, 

The Syriac Fathers on Prayer and the Spiritual Life, 

translated from Syriac Aramaic into English by Sebastian Brock

 

 

"May every bodily image

be wiped away from my mind’s eye,

and may you alone

be depicted before the eye of my mind.

And now, when your Spirit descends from heaven

upon your Mysteries,

may I ascend in spirit from earth to heaven.

At this time

when your power is mingled in with the bread,

may my life be commingled

with your spiritual life." 

– Joseph the Visionary on the contemplative life,

Prayers of the Mystics section, 

The Syriac Fathers on Prayer and the Spiritual Life, 

translated from Syriac Aramaic into English by Sebastian Brock

 

 

 



 

 





Sant Tulsi Sahib and the People of the Anurag Sagar (Lineage of Sant Satgurus)

 

 

Sant Tulsi Sahib and the People of the Anurag Sagar (Lineage of Sant Satgurus)

 

 

 

 

Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras is the founding guru (Adi Guru) of modern-day Sant Mat, with most all Sant Mat and Radhasoami lineages tracing back to him. My podcasts, earlier booklet, and various blogs have focused on finding out who his guru was, and from there getting a glimpse of the overall Sant Mat family tree, the lineage of this Path of the Masters (Inner Light and Sound Meditation) dating back many centuries. I trace that spiritual heritage back to Dariya Sahib of Bihar, his guru Sat Saheb. Sat Saheb connects back to the gurus in the Sant Dharam Das lineage, a mystical branch of the Path of Guru Kabir.

 

 

Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar (left), Sant Tulsi Sahb and Kabir (right)

 

 

An important text for all of these is, The Anurag Sagar, a kind of Gospel of Kabir. This is an important book for followers of Sant Mat to read and study. It's a free online book one can access at Archive.org and a few other places. See, the Anurag Sagar Studies Page, where you can read the Anurag Sagar online at Sant Mat Radhasoami Books, The E Library: Anurag Sagar Section: http://www.SpiritualAwakeningRadio.com/anurag.html

 

 


 

 

“‘Hazur [Baba Sawan Singh] one day told Seth Vasdev, whose car is always at Hazur’s disposal, that he should read Kabir Sahib’s Anurag Sagar (The Ocean of Intense Love). Hazur said that without studying it, one cannot fully understand the difference between Kal (the negative power) and Dayal Mat (the Path of the true and Merciful God), nor can one fully grasp the teachings of Sant Mat.’” (Rai Sahib Munshi Ram, “With the Three Masters”, and also included in the: Introduction to, The Ocean of Love: The Anurag Sagar of Kabir, 1982, Published by Sant Bani Ashram, Sanbornton, New Hampshire, USA)

 

 

 

 

"Among the saints whom Tulsi Sahib himself singles out in Ghat Ramayan as Satgurus (true masters) are Buali Qalandar, Jalaluddin Rumi, Kabir Sahib, Dadu Dayal, Rai Das Ji, Dariya Sahib (who may have been Tulsi Sahib's own Guru), Guru Nanak, Surdas Ji, Nabha Das Ji, Mansur, Mirabai, Sarmad, and Shams-e Tabrizi." (Tulsi Sahib - Saint of Hathras, second edition, 2017, Introduction, page xiii)

"Life is a progression. We progress from childhood to adulthood, from simplicity to complexity, from ignorance to knowledge, from innocence to wisdom and from birth to death. It is the law of life. But there is also a progression from the external life to the internal, from the hustle and bustle of material life to the serenity and silence of internal life. It is in the latter that we experience the beauty of the Self and its connection with Divinity. (Jagessar Das, New Book: Doctor by Chance, Mystic by Choice)
 
"The Master finished speaking and fell silent for a while. I felt the import of his words penetrate my entire being. I pledged myself to explore the universe of love, that universe that transcends time, space and causality. It is a universe which needs no spaceship for its conquest. It has riches undreamed of in the outer physical universe. The physical universe is a place of awe-inspiring beauty, and the mind of man is naturally inclined to plumb the wonders of its creation; but this outer universe is only the material robe of the Supreme Lord, who is all love. God has upheld His entire creation with the power of love, and the very soul of man is infused with this power. I have sojourned in the physical world for eons, and I have known the three states of slumber, dream and wakefulness. Now, through the grace of a living Master, I would attain the state of superconsciousness. I will be shown how to reassert my own true nature and thus walk upon the highway of love, the radiant way of return to my true home." (Pilgrimage Of James -- An Odyssey of Inner Space, by George Arnsby Jones, now an online book at The Internet Archive)
 
'In this labyrinth of existence we can become quite habituated into remaining as surface-dwellers living inundated by all the outward distractions that life on earth provides. We may ask of ourselves, “Am I availing myself of the spiritual direction and wisdom that comes from within?”
 
'Over the centuries contemplative souls have taught that the human body is a kind of temple, and that within this temple are portals that lead to other dimensions, that by looking within this microcosm we may access the macrocosm of the heavens.
 
'We are children of both worlds.
We human beings are a Tree of Life
with roots in the earth
and branches rising into a mystic sky.'

Not Necessarily Saints, Says Tukaram
 
They're not mystics because they write poetry,
not saints because they're related to a saint.
Their names and costumes don't matter;
only those who face the enemy in battle are brave.
They're not mystics just because they play instruments
and drape an ascetic's blanket over their shoulders,
or sing and recite scriptures.
Reading the Vedas and performing rituals
does not make them saints.
Penances, pilgrimages and living in forests
make no one a mystic.
Beads, caste marks and smeared ashes --
these don't make a saint.
If they don't forget the body*, says Tuka,
they're just people of the world.
 
-- Sant Tukarama, Many Voices, One Song, The Poet Mystics of Maharashtra
 
* Note: “forget the body”, or in other words, being able to transcend the material realm via meditation practice.
 
 
Paramahansa Yogananda: "Truths are not truths to you unless you realize them within yourself. Without realization, they are just ideas. For spiritual perception, spiritual consciousness, lies not in vague theological ideas, but in the acquisition of Self-realization."
 
 
Question: Is this a Covid warning?
 
“Be on guard, so that your hearts do not become heavy with the eating of flesh and with the intoxication of wine and with the anxiety of the world, and that day come upon you suddenly; for as a snare it will come upon all who dwell upon the surface of the earth.” (Jesus, Luke 21:34, Evangelion Da-Mepharreshe — Old Syriac-Aramaic Manuscript of the New Testament Gospels)
 
Answer (my reply): It certainly does fit a tragic pattern. Not that Covid 19 is the only example of a zoonotic apocalypse, just the latest in a long series of pandemics and killer flu seasons or bird flues leading to much self-inflicted human suffering due to a diet that includes eating meat. The 1918 pandemic called the Spanish Flu was an H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin. There is now discussion about a future zoonotic pandemic that could be far worse, even more deadly than the current one. And this is part of a long sad history of diseases being passed from animals to humans. Wet markets and factory farms are the perfect setting for deadly diseases to transmit from species to species to human. The consequences of the eating of flesh leading to anxiety and pestilence goes back many centuries, and may ultimately bring civilization to an end one day soon… unless we collectively change our ways. #GoVegan

Remembering the Forgotten Self (Soul) Lost in the Dust of Creation

 

 

 

 

Rumi: "You think of yourself as a citizen of the universe. You think you belong to this world of dust and matter. Out of this dust you have created a personal image, and have forgotten about the essence of your true origin."

 

Stevan L. Davies: "I think that Gnosticism is about discovering the way that God has turned into you, and then realizing that if you can describe how it is that God turned into you, you can reverse the process."

 

Over the many centuries there have always been mystical branches of Judaism, Kabbalah, Sethian Gnosis, and others that have had an ethical, peaceful philosophy of life, adhered to a vegetarian diet, had living teachers or Masters of the Name, a system of initiation into holy names, and the #meditation practice of ascension of the soul through several upper worlds of Light and Sound, with the goal of reuniting with the Supreme Being. Sometimes these teachings get lost or partially forgotten over time, but there is evidence for their existence, and the quest of the mystic soul is to REMEMBER. (from one of my blog entries)

 

Like Galileo discovering new worlds through the lens of his telescope, mystics have been trying to tell humanity for eons of something quite similar. The reason why the contemplative state of being is still hidden from most of us is that, unlike Galileo’s telescope, in order to look through this particular lens, the third eye or inner vision, we mustn’t focus on the outward sensory impressions, but go in the opposite direction: into Inner Space. Look through the lens of the third eye during meditation to access the world of within. Tune the inner radio dial, listening for the subtle inner sounds coming from beyond the silence. This is how to access the Kingdom of the Heavens, the Inner Space within you. (from one of my blog entries)

 

"Look within yourself with the inner eye.

The whole expanse inside is replete

with the refulgence of the Divine Light."

-- Dadu Dayal, the Compassionate Mystic

 

“Sant Kabir Sahab asks: ‘You have lost an object in one place and you are looking for it in an entirely different place. How could you possibly find it?’ Let us consider this dilemma in view of the way people usually attempt to find peace, joy and contentment. People wander ceaselessly through life, always seeking to acquire material resources, thinking they will thus achieve their goal of happiness. However, as the saints tell us, even if we acquire all these physical possessions – status, fame, or wealth – we are still unable to attain true peace, joy and happiness. The peace we seek is not found in the outer material world but only in the inner world of the soul. The outer manifest world is merely sensory. It is transitory and ever-fleeting. But within us lives the Supreme Being whose true form is peace and bliss. The Divine is unmanifest (without physical form), eternal, and beyond the senses. Only by turning inward and ceasing the outward wandering, will we be able to attain lasting joy and eternal peace.”

 

– Swami Santsevi Ji Maharaj – Finding Peace Within – Light and Sound on the Path

 

“Bring the sky beneath your feet and listen to Celestial Music everywhere.” -- Rumi

 

 


 

 






God is Already Within Us

 

 

God is Already Within Us



 


 

 

“Take up the broom of love, and sweep the chamber of your heart.” (Bani of Kabir Sahib)

“Only when we have made our hearts clean, can the Lord – Who is immaculate and pure – manifest there. He is already residing there, but he will manifest. We don’t need to bring some other Lord from outside. The false worldly thoughts come from outside and fill up our within. But the Almighty Lord is already innate in our within. He does not descend from some other realm.” (Baba Somanath’s commentary)

“But my Friend resides within me.” (Bani of Kabir Sahib)

“What need do I have to look for Him outside? When we direct our yearning toward the Lord over and over, we become his very form. Then we say, ‘He has become my true friend. I have no more need to wait for His coming. If He were separate from me, then I would have to search for Him and wait for Him. But I am in Him and He is in me. So now what is the point of seeking Him? Where would I search and who would I wait for?’” (Baba Somanath’s commentary)

Meditation

“Without eyes, you see; without ears, you hear.” (Bani of Kabir Sahib)

"To see without eyes, to hear without ears – this is an inner experience.

Guru Nanak has also spoken on this subject: ‘To see without eyes; to hear without ears.’

All the saints teach the same thing. No matter how hard you may try, you will not be able to have the darshan [vision] of that inner Lord using these physical eyes.

Ramdas Swami tells us: ‘These eyes of flesh cannot see Him; you can behold the Lord only with the eye of knowledge (the inner eye).’

He cannot be seen with these eyes of flesh. Only when you look with the inner eye of knowledge will you behold Him. In the same way, you will hear without ears. Through the physical ears, you hear the sounds of the outer words. But the inner Dhun is resounding of itself, and that Sound is heard without ears. We hear outer sounds through the physical ears, but if the inner Sound did not exist, our sense organs would not function – our very life-breath would cease." (Baba Somanath’s commentary)
