"What else is Christ but the Sound of God." (Acts of John) Today, research into the inner Sound mysticism of the Judeo-Christian and Gnostic traditions. Before the Sufi mystics of Islam, in ancient times there were Gnostics: Jewish, Hermetic, and Christian mystics who described hearing Heavenly Sound or Divine Music, and seeing mystic visions of Light and the heavens while in deep states of contemplative meditation.    The Sound of God is within everyone -- this Holy Stream of Sound -- is within every living being. This is why those given to exploring the Kingdoms of Inner Space...

Odes of Solomon, Lost Psalms of Early Christianity Discovered show art Odes of Solomon, Lost Psalms of Early Christianity Discovered

Spiritual Awakening Radio

Out of all the apocryphal writings I've collected, I think the Odes of Solomon is the most beautiful, inspiring and inspired. It is the would-be book of New Testament psalms! The Book of the Odes has been described as the first known hymn-book of early Christianity. They have nothing to do with "Solomon" but somewhere-along-the-way got mislabeled and assigned to the genre of Old Testament Apocrypha as the Odes represent one of the earliest of Christian documents near the beginning of the Jesus movement within Judaism and so composed before a time when there were many Jewish or Christian...

Spiritual Awakening Radio

Some in the West have encountered teachings about Inner Light and Sound Meditation indirectly and then eventually heard that this form of meditation practice actually is derived from a rare spiritual path from India called Sant Mat (the Way or Teachings of the Saints). Spiritual seekers also may have discovered one of our spiritual classics, the book, Path of the Masters, by Julian P. Johnson, were blown away by it, and wish to learn more. This is a pattern: how many have found this path. I was introduced to Sant Mat this way too.   "While we sojourn in this dark region of matter, we have...

Why the Third Eye? Why We Begin Meditation at the Third Eye Center in Sant Mat… It’s the Seat of the Soul  show art Why the Third Eye? Why We Begin Meditation at the Third Eye Center in Sant Mat… It’s the Seat of the Soul

Spiritual Awakening Radio

Why the Third Eye? Why We Begin Meditation at the Third Eye Center in Sant Mat… It’s the Seat of the Soul! With the demiurgical or Kalistic systems of conventional religions there's always a sense of running out the clock, that though life is short we should be spending decades upon decades perfecting rites and rituals, or beginning at the bottom of the chakra system of the physical body and slowly working our way up, or waiting to develop super ethical purity par excellence till we become "worthy" before we can truly begin our spiritual journey. But demiurgical systems put the divine...

Spiritual Awakening Radio

"Sant Mat" can be defined as: "The Teachings ('Mat') of the Saints ('Sants') or Sages" or "Path of the Masters". In India it’s common knowledge that the term "Sant Mat" was coined or adapted by Param Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras during the 19th-century. "Sant Mat" was adopted and popularized by Tulsi Sahib as a new name for this spiritual path or genre of mysticism, but the Sant tradition, with its many guru-lineages or branches, is a spiritual movement that dates back many centuries to ancient India.   "There is no end to the number of Sants who appeared in the Yugas [Epochs] of Sat,...

Sant Dadu Dayal was a poet mystic and spiritual Master of Divine Love, Light, Sound, and Nirguna Bhakti (Devotion to the Formless God, the Ocean of Love). He was from Rajasthan. Anyone who studies his teachings will encounter a very genuine, pure version of Sant Mat (the Path of the Masters) with the perfect balance of God and guru bhakti, love and mysticism (Surat Shabd Yoga, inner Light and Sound Meditation). The Dadu Vani, Panch Vani Granth of the Dadu Panth is one of the great scriptures of the Sant tradition of India and it includes the mystic poetry of Sant Dadu Dayal of Rajasthan. ...

"The soul-explorer is not alone, for there are those who have traveled the highways of the inner cosmos; far more than one may at first realize." (George Arnsby Jones)

 

"I had no fixed starting place in time and space, for I dwelt in a multi-verse that was co-extensive with all the ages. But my inner world was still limited by the boundaries of creation; I needed the guidance of a spiritual adept, within the physical world itself, to give me new birth into the freedom of eternity." (George Arnsby Jones)

 

Spiritual satsang readings today from the "Family Tree of Sants", from the literature of the lineage of Sant Mat Masters descending from Guru Kabir, the Path of the Masters. I maintain that the contemporary line of Masters in Sant Mat, and various branches thereof, emanates from this primary line of past Masters (Sant Satgurus): Kabir to Sant Dharam Das to Sat Saheb to Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar to Tulsi Sahib of Hathras and then branching out from various successors of Sant Tulsi Sahib up to the living present. You will always find this lineage of Sants is especially honored here, and the writings of these Masters are often explored.

 

"O Soul! Who are you and whence have you come? You are a ray from Purush (the Supreme Being) and an inhabitant of the purely Spiritual Region." (Swami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry)

 

"The truth is, you turned away yourself,

and decided to go into the dark alone.

Now you are tangled up in others,

and have forgotten what you once knew." (Kabir)

 

"Hiding in this cage of visible matter

is the invisible life-bird.

Pay attention to her,

She is singing your song." (Kabir)

 

"When the mind becomes calm then the truth is revealed." (Kabir)

 

"By seeking the path within, one will go beyond the sensory realm…and will attain the State of Oneness." (Swami Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj)

 

"The natural tendencies of the soul (atman) are to move from outward to inward. The current of consciousness which is dispersed in the nine gates of the body and the senses, must be collected at the tenth gate. The tenth gate is the gathering point of consciousness. Therein lies the path for our return. The tenth gate is also known as the sixth chakra, the third eye, bindu, the center located between the two eyebrows. This is the gateway through which we leave the gates of the sense organs and enter in the divine realms and finally become established in the soul. We travel back from the Realm of Darkness to the Realm of Light, from the Light to the Divine Sound, and from the Realm of Sound to the Soundless State. This is called turning back to the Source." (Beloved Swami Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj)

 

God is the Ocean of Love.

 

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