“ALL SAINTS HAVE EMPHASIZED in Their Satsangs the importance of Bhajan and Simran. Sant Ajaib Singh Ji also used to, very often, mention in His Satsangs that ‘you can leave a hundred things and sit for Satsang, and you can leave a thousand things and sit for meditation’ because these two things are your own things to do. These are your personal things. Everything else that we do, for a livelihood, for our family, our occupation and everything, all of that is work done for someone else. So, therefore, even if you have a thousand things pending, sit for Satsang…

Sitting within, in the barren wilderness of my heart, a Sound is heard coming from afar.

Only yesterday I was sitting amidst a congregation composed of the intoxicated Lovers of the Master.

Today I will not allow my footsteps to be turned away from treading upon the dust of the Lane of the Beloved.

Feeling desolate and Godforsaken, I am impelled to depart from this wasteland.

Crazed with grief I proceed toward the lane of the Beloved.

In the madness of Love…

“Whether you get Darshan, hear Shabd and experience bliss and joy or not, you should apply yourself, with avidity and regularity to Sumiran, Dhyan and Bhajan and the reading and recitation of the holy books. Pay greater attention to Sumiran [Simran]. By Divine Mercy, progress will be made gradually. Always look for Grace.” (Biography of Babuji Maharaj)

“Trust that Radhasoami Dayal [the Compassionate Lord of the Soul] hears your prayers and supplications. He will surely shower His grace upon you. You will certainly receive help internally.”

“You should try to hear Shabd by fixing your attention at the Third Eye…

There’s a very old Syriac-Aramaic manuscript of the Gospel of Luke that even predates the Syriac Peshitta called Evangelion da-Mepharreshe. It contains some “textual variants”, in other words, differs from the Greek gospel manuscripts and the now often standardized or conformist approach used by most of the New Testament translators these days. There are two surviving editions of Evangelion da-Mepharreshe: the Curetonian Version of the Four Gospels as well as the Sinai Palimpsest, also known as The Old Syriac Gospels. …

Evils in the World Are Committed Because of Our Unmindfulness

“Tranquility at the level of the body is the abolition of wars; countries at peace; submission without rebellion, without fighting to excel, without stealing possessions, without legal disputes, without judicial charges; cessation of calumny; no controversy about faith; concord that is in stillness, away from conflict.

“Tranquility at the level of the soul is a heart not troubled by thoughts; a mind not divided by its thoughts; a will which does not quarrel with itself; serene thinking which does not disturb the heart; gentleness of soul without distracting stirrings.

“Tranquility at the level of the spirit: a mind undivided concerning…

And to all the loving sangat, which has come here, my best wishes to all of you. And I pray that Baba Ji’s Grace is always on you.

All of you have left very important things back home and have come here to participate in this program. I am very happy to see all of you here because it is indeed only very few fortunate people who get the opportunity to do Simran and do meditation. I pray at the feet of the Baba Ji that He graces all of you and encourages you to do more and more meditation.

The main branches of the Sant Tulsi Sahib Sangat in Hathras, Lucknow and elsewhere (based in several cities in India) do use the same secret Five Names as some related branches of Sant Mat and Radhasoami.

The Maharshi Mehi Satsang uses a different name, also a name not revealed but is intended for initiates only. Not sure if the practice of using this other name began with Baba Devi Sahib or more recently with Maharshi Mehi.

The Agra-based Radhasoami’s (associated with Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram Bahadur) use a different sacred name, a public domain name in this case (not secret…

The compassionate spirit of Bodhisattva is always mindful of others, their suffering, their need of liberation, a greater good not confined or limited to one’s own narrow vision of personal needs, beliefs and interests including religious or spiritual interests. If a religious sect has made some errors somewhere along the way, chose truth over sectarian affiliation.

The five precepts include ahimsa: non-violence in thought, word and deed, also truthfulness. …

O Sant Satguru, Form of Truth,
You are ever pure and undefiled.

You are the victor over death who ferries the jivas [souls] across the impassable realm of matter,
Omniscient Consciousness, Quintessence of Light,
Ineffable and beyond reckoning is Your state.
The mind cannot conceive of You; You are without beginning and without end.

Through contemplation upon You, the yogis have abandoned worldly desires and have achieved union with the Beloved.
The Vedas and all the scriptures extol Your Greatness.
Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma, and the serpent Shesh proclaim Your glory.
O Kindler of Light, in Your form resides all power and splendor.
You dwell…
