The Unpublished Letters of Kirpal Singh on Meditation Practice show art The Unpublished Letters of Kirpal Singh on Meditation Practice

Spiritual Awakening Radio

Today I begin with a reading from the mystic verses of Sat Saheb, the initiating spiritual master of Sant Dariya Sahib. Sat Saheb was one of the earlier Sant Satgurus of the Sant Mat guru lineage living a couple of generations prior to the time of Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras. His mystic poetry is quite beautiful and composed in the style of the Anurag Sagar and other scriptures of the earlier Kabir-Sant Dharam Das line of masters. Then I share some letters from Sant Kirpal Singh on meditation practice. Those are quite wonderful, and helpful for the satsangi seeking to improve the quality of...

Spiritual Awakening Radio

With all the turmoil and injustice in the world, the soul cries out for peace and tranquility, ultimately seeking permanent spiritual repose in heavenly regions. Let us join the caravan of mystics, learn from them the ways of ahimsa: nonviolence in thought, word, and deed, and aspire to connect with the heavenly realms of God. If only the soul and it's heavenly abode can come to the forefront of our attention, we will soon discover that, "It is in Him that we live and move and have our being." (Acts 17 : 28, New Testament)   "In the company of mystics wrongdoings wash away, the fever of...

"Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth." (says Rumi) "You have ignored the Living One who is in your presence and you have spoken only of the dead." "Look to the Living One while you are alive, otherwise, you might die and seek to see him and will be unable to find him." "Whoever drinks from my mouth will become like me. I myself shall become that person, and the Hidden Things will be revealed to that one." "I will give to you what eye has not seen, what ear has not heard, what hand has not touched, and what has not occurred to the mind of...

Sant Kirpal Singh: "There lived in India Swami Shiv Brat Lal, a disciple of Rai Saligram [successor of Swami Ji Maharaj], who was advanced in spirituality but he gave out all these things about which I am now referring, in story form. He would bring out these very teachings of the Master in some novel like form in the Urdu language, of course, not in English. He did a splendid work, having brought out two, three thousand books, I think. Somewhere he takes the soul as a prince so that he may bring out a story with all these teachings given here. He did a very wonderful work. He has now passed...

"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." (Dr. Jagessar Das, Doctor by Chance - Mystic by Choice, also translator of, The Complete Bijak of Guru Kabir, and other translations of Kabir)...

Kabir, the "Rumi" of India, one of the greatest Saints, Poets, and Spiritual Masters in the history of the world! Selections: Says Kabir: "Kal (time, ego, limited mental perception) has entangled people in illusions to such an extent that they have totally forgotten their Real Home." "Meditation will remove all your burdens; meditation upon Ram's [God's] name will become your support." "One after another, many births I took; many paths I followed to escape this relentless cycle. Only when I made my mind still did I obtain the state of lasting repose." "Just as the lotus blooms after getting...

Spiritual Awakening Radio

On the web you'll find a lot of talk about spirituality, yet so few rise above body-consciousness and get to experience that Sacred Inner Space for themselves. Reliable information is quite rare. There's so much discussion about "gnostics", "mystics", "sages of philosophy", "masters of the east", or "ancient scriptures" but almost nothing is ever said about the spiritual practices of these gnostics and mystics of the ages. Only with a Living Mystic Path, a Living School of Spirituality is one close to the Inner Circle of Masters and Students where this sort of Divine Path can be made knowable...

The world presents us with infinite distractions to always keep us off-center, diverting our attention from our spiritual goals, seemingly never able to reach an oasis of peace and tranquility. And within as well, there are many obstacles intended to prevent the soul from making much spiritual progress during this life. This according to the Gnostics and the Masters is the great cosmic conspiracy of the ages to keep souls down, circling round and round on the wheel of transmigration with no apparent means of escape, no end in sight. And changing belief-systems, rituals and theologies, doctrines, or what icons are hanging on the wall won't help either, as these are all confined to the world of mortal minds and matter, just amounting to "rearranging the chairs on the deck of the Titanic", as they say. According to the Masters, the way of escape, liberation and redemption for the soul is not visiting yet more physical temples made of wood and stone, or swapping old religious doctrines for new ones, which still are confined to the same lower planes of creation, but rather to "rise above body-consciousness", to learn the almost lost mystic art of "death before dying", discovering how to transcend body and mind during contemplative meditation practice and connect with that missing element of our existence: what it's like to be a soul or spiritual being! By following the meditation guidance of the Masters we will reach the seat of the soul, the third eye center hidden within us, access the Inner Light and Sound, enter the spiritual realms here and now, and begin our journey back to God. 


Friend? hope for the Guest while you are alive.

Jump into experience while you are alive!

Think... and think... while you are alive.

What you call "salvation" belongs to the time

            before death.


If you don't break your ropes while you're alive,

do you think ghosts will do it after?


The idea that the soul will join with the ecstatic

just because the body is rotten --

that is all fantasy.

What is found now is found then.

If you find nothing now,

you will simply end up with an apartment in the

          City of Death.

If you make love with the Divine now, in the next

life you will have the face of satisfied desire.


So plunge into the truth, find out who the Teacher is,

Believe in the Great Sound!


Kabir says this: When the Guest is being searched for,

it is the intensity of the longing for the Guest

that does all the work.


Look at me, and you will see a slave of that intensity.


-- Says Kabir, one of the founding Satgurus of Sant Mat


Today during our satsang podcast: readings from Sant Kirpal Singh (Prayer: Its Nature and Technique); the Gospel of Philip (Nag Hammadi Library); Swami Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj on finding the Light in the darkness; a letter from Hazur Baba Sawan Singh; Spiritual Consciousness (published by Dayalbagh University, Agra); a mystic Sufi poem on dying while living by Hazrat Sultan Bahu; a Sant Mat glossary definition of the word "Simran" -- the sacred repetition of names of God; and a Satsang Discourse by Baba Ram Singh titled, "Surat Shabd Yoga [Inner Light and Sound Meditation] Is The Only Study That Teaches Us How To Die While We Are Living."


In Divine Love (Bhakti), Light, and Sound, At the Feet of the Masters, Radhaswami,
