"As there are landmarks on earth, so there are landmarks in Time. The past and future are like sealed books to us: the one is in the limbo of oblivion, while the other is in the womb of uncertainty. It is only the LIVING PRESENT that is ours, and we must make the best use of it, ere it slips away through the fingers and is lost forever. Human birth is a great privilege and offers us a golden opportunity. It is for us to make or mar the same, for it is given to each individual to forge his or her own destiny as best he may.” (Kirpal Singh, Standing at the Crossroads of Time)   Kirpal...

Long ago, Giordano Bruno wrote of an infinity of worlds and life in the cosmos: "He is glorified not in one, but in countless suns; not in a single earth, a single world, but in a thousand thousand, I say in an infinity of worlds." As was often the case with the western mystics, he was burned at the stake for sharing his revelations, his "heresy". Such has been the fate of numerous gnostic souls and other mystics. Around that very same time but further to the East in India, Guru Nanak also sang that there are countless earths, spheres, moons, suns oceans, living creatures and beings, millions...

Spiritual Awakening Radio

"Sant Mat" can be defined as: "The Path of the Masters" or "Way of the Saints and Mystics". Sant Mat is a living school of spirituality or mystic path. It has some shared ideas in common and parallel spiritual practices that once-upon-a-time were part of Gnosticism, Pythagoreanism, Platonism, Kabbalah, Christian mysticism, and Sufism. But unlike some cousin schools of spirituality that are associated with earlier centuries, medieval times, and antiquity, Sant Mat is a living spiritual path with us now in the Twenty-First Century, is a "living gnosis now", complete with living mystics and and...

The realms described by the Masters are within one’s self. That is to say, it is a journey of several stages that one passes through on the way to the Non-dual Ultimate Reality or Ocean of Oneness at the Top, beyond all illusion. The journey begins at the Third Eye Center, goes up through the Crown Chakra and through many levels beyond. During meditation (surat shabd yoga, out-of-body or soul travel), one passes through the regions. Certain lights, visions or sounds one encounters up this NDE-like “tunnel” inside are used as markers along the way. Certain key visions, lights and sounds,...

Satsang Readings and Commentary Based on, Prem Patra Radhasoami, The Spiritual Love Discourses of the Lord of the Soul, Volumes One and Two, by Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram Bahadhur, great teacher, prolific writer and one of the founding Satgurus of Sant Mat in recent centuries.

 

"A heart devoid of Love or Affection is as hard as stone, and does not form a suitable receptacle for the Light of Heavenly Grace and Mercy...  Where Pure Love dwells there sheds the Light of Grace, as it forms a link with the Spirit or Love Current from It's Source, the Supreme Being... Love is most sublime, having its origin in the Highest Region, the Abode of the Supreme Being. In whatever heart it springs up, It will gradually raise and carry the fortunate possessor of this lofty and noble passion to the Highest Region." (Huzur Maharaj)

Anmol Vachan, by Sant Gharib Das; 

 

"When you sing the name ‘Radhasoami’, you do the simran of the ‘Five Names’.” (Sant Gharib Das, Book of Anmol Bachan)

 

“No devotee was so near and dear to Soamiji Maharaj as Hazur Maharaj [Rai Salig Ram Bahadhur] was. In his letters to Hazur Maharaj he addressed him as 'Aziz-az-Jan', meaning dearer than self. In ecstasy, grace and mercy, once he said, 'I do not know whether I am Rai Salig Ram’s Guru or he is mine.'" (Petals of Love, by A.P. Mathur)

 

"Addressing Lala Seth Pratap Singh, Soamiji Maharaj observed: 'The Faith I had given out was that of Sat Naam and Anami. The Radhasoami Faith has been introduced by Salig Ram (Huzur Maharaj). You should let it also continue. Satsang must go on. Satsang shall spread far and wide in future.'" (Last Words of Soamiji)

 

"This creation is subject to dissolution and everything therein is also perishable. He alone is wise and prudent who has carefully examined the affairs of the world and, finding it liable to destruction and therefore unreal and illusory, has derived real benefit from his human body by performing the practices of Simran and Bhajan and, taking advantage of the gifts bestowed on the human body by the Supreme Lord, has succeeded in taking his Surat, i.e. the spirit which is the most invaluable essence in the creation, to its Original Home." (Prose, Book One, Verse One)

 

God is the Ocean of Love.

 

In Divine Love, Light and Sound, Radhasoami, Peace Be to You,
