Today we explore Inner Sound Meditation according to the teachings of Sufism, Jainism, the Sikh scriptures, and the Path of Guru Kabir, along with some valuable insight about Inner Sound Meditation practice by Edward Salim Michael.    "Abstract Sound is called Saut-e Sarmad by the Sufis; all space is filled with it. The vibrations of this Sound are too fine to be either audible or visible to the material eyes or ears, since it is even difficult for the eyes to see the form and color of the ethereal vibrations on the external plane. It was the Saut-e Sarmad, the Sound of the abstract...

"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...

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...

"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,...

On this auspicious day, Wednesday, July 13th, 2022 in India is Guru Purnima, Masters' Day, Teachers' Day. Devotees pay homage to their Spiritual Teacher (Sant Satguru) especially on this day. Today on this Sant Mat Satsang Podcast a Guru Purnima Message. 

 

Thankfully, there have been honest, loving, radiant, Godly beings that have graced this planet with their enlightened compassion. They work with those who seek the Path of the Masters and successfully practice Surat Shabd Yoga (Inner Light and Sound meditation) in a way that is almost identical to the Ideal spiritual path described by Swami Ji Maharaj of Agra, Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras, and Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar, with a rich mystical approach to meditation practice, travelling quite far along in their journey back to God. These initiates have very real experiences commencing with their meditation practice.

 

"The true gurus live a simple life and morally upright lifestyle; they stay away from the pomp and show of the display of power. For example, they do not have expensive cars and opulent ashrams. They do not show favoritism among their followers... They do not consume prohibited foods (alcohol, animal products, etc...), nor do they instruct their followers for their consumption... They do not pretend to be in Samadhi nor do they put on a public display of fasting. They do not cling to a particular caste and do not favor religious customs. They do not care about their appearance nor try to impress others through their outer appearance." (Swami Vyasanand)

 

"Another common misconception is that prophets, saints and mystics search for 'new' truth. Rather, what they do is to simply remove the layers of dirt -- of accumulated misinterpretations -- that have corrupted the truth. Then the living teacher will bring forth the very same truth in a new light. The original truth must repeatedly be presented to suit the current age." (Swami Santsevi Ji Maharaj)

 

"One wishing to reach one's home should seek the Satguru’s shelter. This will help one pursue the pathway leading to one’s true home." (Maharshi Mehi) 

 

"Feed your heart in conversation with someone harmonious with it; seek spiritual advancement from one who is advanced. If you seek to know God, sit at the feet of the Saints." (Rumi)

 

"All Scriptures, Sages, Saints and Mahatmas have laid great emphasis on devotion to a Master, because without devotion all our spiritual practices take us only half-way and do not bring proper results." (Hazur Baba Sawan Singh)

 

"The teachings of all Saints are essentially the same. They speak of the 'Kingdom of Heaven' which is within. They show the path and impart instructions to attain it. They do not claim to teach something new or different from what other Saints have taught. Tulsi Sahab declared that he was giving the same teachings as those of Kabir Sahab, Nanak Sahab, Dadu Sahab and other Saints. Tulsi Sahab, for the first time, used the expression 'Sant Mat' or 'The Teachings of the Saints' to stress the basic unity of the teachings of all Saints." (entry for Sant Tulsi Sahib in, White Paper on the Religion of Sants and RadhaSoami Faith)

 

God is the Ocean of Love.

 

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