Notes About Today's PODCAST: The Meaning and Lessons of the Nag Hammadi Library Discovery

The Gospel of the Egyptians: "The great Seth wrote this book… He placed it in the mountain... in order that, at the end of the times and the eras… it may come forth and reveal... the great, invisible, eternal Spirit… The Gospel of the Egyptians. The God-written, holy, secret book." (Gospel of the Egyptians, The Nag Hammadi Library)

“And there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. There is nothing buried that will not be raised!” (Saying of Jesus, Greek Gospel of Thomas)

In December 1945 a collection of ancient scriptures – fifty-two books – was unearthed near the village of Nag Hammadi in Egypt. These texts had been placed in a clay storage jar, sealed, and buried sometime during the Fourth Century AD. Monks who lived at a nearby monastery founded by Saint Pachomius most likely hid them there at the time. They would have been sacred texts once part of the library of this monastic community, one of several Pachomian monasteries operating in Egypt during those days.

Rather than confining themselves to only reading the Old and New Testaments or teachings exclusively from Orthodox Christian sources, these monks had a surprisingly diverse collection of writings that can only be characterized as inter-faith and multi-traditional. In other words, they were also studying the scriptures of other teachers, sages, religions and “cousin” esoteric mystical movements of their day.

Love and Goodness are the Beginning of the Way: Judas asked, “Where does the Path begin?” Jesus answered, “It begins with love — love and goodness.” (An apocryphal gospel preserved in the Nag Hammadi Library called Dialogue with the Savior)

"Knock on yourself as upon a door, and walk upon yourself as on a straight road. For if you walk on the road, it is impossible for you to go astray. And if you knock with this one (Wisdom), you knock on hidden treasures..... My son, do not allow your mind to stare downward, but rather, let it look by means of the Light at things above. For the Light will always come from above. Even if it (the mind) is upon the earth, let it seek to pursue the things above. Enlighten your mind with the Light of heaven, so that you may turn to the Light of heaven." (The Teachings of Silvanus, in, The Nag Hammadi Library -- one of the Gnostic texts from Egypt)

“If your spiritual guides say to you,
‘Look, the Divine Realm is
in the sky,’
well then the birds
will get there ahead of you.
If they say,
‘It is in the sea,’
then the fish will precede you.
“No, Divine Reality exists
inside and all around you.
Only when you have come to know your
true Self will you be fully known —
realizing at last that you
are a child of the Living One.
If, however, you never come to know
who you truly are,
you are a poverty-stricken being,
and it is your ‘self’
which lies impoverished.”

(Yeshua, Saying Three, The Gospel of Thomas —
Wisdom of the Twin, Lynn Bauman translation)

"There was within me a stillness of silence, and I heard the Blessedness whereby I knew my real self.....And I turned to myself and saw the Light that surrounded me and the Good that was in me, I became divine." (Allogenes, "The Stranger" or "Foreigner" -- a passage from the book of Allogenes in, Nag Hammadi Library of Egypt)

God is the Ocean of Love.

Notes About Today's PODCAST: Dadu, the Compassionate Mystic of the East

Dadu Dayal: "Saints are the true redeemers, they make one see the Creator face to face. Having themselves crossed the ocean of the world, they take others across. They are the saviors of beings."

"Do the repetition of God [God's Name] and forget
Him not.
Fulfil the purpose of thy birth
by practising concentration.
Be steadfast in the remembrance of God.
Practice meditation with love, and sing
the glory of God.
The human body is the door to salvation.
Do the repetitions of God, the Creator
of the universe." (Dadu)

"One who, turning the attention inward,
Brings it within the self,
And fixes it on the Radiant Form of the Master,
Is indeed wise, O Dadu.
Fix your attention within;
Sing always the inner Music with the soul.
This mind then dances with ecstasy
And enjoys the rhythmic beat.
One sings within the self
And the rhythmic Music is played.
The mind dances with love." (Dadu)

Dadu: "The Name of God is my sect. My way of living is control of the senses. For my deeds -- watch my disciples: their goal is to be immersed in Ram [God]." (The Life Story of Dadu Dayal -- The Book of Janma Lila, By Jan Gopal)

"I bow before the immaculate, Divine Gosvami [Supreme Being]. Through my Guru's favor I have been given all purity. I greet all the Sants: through their devotion I drink the nectar of Ram [God]. There is no end to the number of Sants who appeared in the Yugas [Epochs] of Sat, Treta, Dvapar, and Kali. I sing of the celebrated one I have heard of, and bow my head to all the others." (Jan Gopal, disciple of Dadu Dayal)

A quote from the 16th century Indian Master Dadu, who outlined the Sant Mat vision of the spiritual life to be pursued during our time here on planet Earth:

Recognize the Path to your Beloved, O travelers and take the route of the anguished lover in separation. Keep the Master’s grace in your thoughts, and reflect upon his pure teachings. Develop love and devotion with endearment, and keep the thought of the Creator always before you. Try to merge yourself into God like water and water. Fix your mind within by following the Path of the Sound Current. A yearning will arise; make then an intense and anguished call. Repeat the Name of your Beloved, day and night, again and again, again and again. With care in thought, word and deed, you will cross to the other shore.

“Remembering God, life is successful, if spent in the service of others.” (Sant Dadu the Compassionate Mystic quoted in, The Life Story of Dadu Dayal — The Book of Janma Lila, By Jan Gopal)

God is the Ocean of Love.

Notes About Today's PODCAST: Guru Nanak and the Adi Granth: The Sikh Scriptures

During this human existence we have an opportunity to experience God. As we experience communing with God's love during meditation -- Surat Shabd Yoga -- we can rise above body-consciousness and explore Inner Space, the "Kingdom of the Heavens" that are within us. "We travel back from the realm of Darkness to the realm of Light, from the Light to Divine Sound, and from the realm of Sound to the Soundless State." (Swami Santsevi Ji Maharaj) The drop merges back into the Ocean of Love.

As we get initiated into Shabd Naam by a Living Satguru, the purpose of our life is fulfilled. Reuniting with God is our reason to be here: "It was for the sake of the God-conscious beings that our True Lord created this earth, and began this play of death and birth". (Adi Granth)

The Mind is Filled with the Divine Music of the Spheres

The Lord placed the soul in the body's cave,
And the breath held the Music of Life.
He made each body with nine gates, (1)
With the Tenth Gate (2); remaining well hid.
And the Tenth Door was opened to him
Who truly loved the Guru's wisdom.
And there lives the Lord in His myriad forms,
as well as the nine treasures of the Name.
His limit cannot be found.

Says Nanak, the Lord placed the soul in the
body's cave and the breath held the Music of Life.

Listen to this Song of Bliss, you blessed ones,
And all your heart's longings shall be fulfilled.
You will reach the Transcendent Lord, and
your sorrows will depart.
All afflictions and sorrows are destroyed
at the Sound of the True Word,
And my friends, the saints were in ecstasy when
the perfect Guru revealed it.
Those who speak and those who listen are pure,
And they see the All-pervading Lord everywhere.
Nanak prays: Attaching to the feet of the Guru,
The mind is filled with the Divine Music of the Spheres.

-- Guru Amar Das, from Anand Sahib
_____
Notes:

(1) "nine gates": The nine visible orifices of the body.

(2) "The Tenth Gate": The Tenth, or Hidden, Gate of the body: The Third Eye, in essence, is the Portal to inner realms. The Upanishads describe a human being as a city with ten gates. Nine gates (eyes, nostrils, ears, mouth, urethra, anus) lead to the outside world. The Tenth Gate, the Third Eye, opens onto inner worlds: the whole spectrum of levels of consciousness.

God is the Ocean of Love.
