The Spiritual Experience One Has In The Beginning Is Not Enough

The Spiritual Experience One Has In The Beginning Is Not Enough

"Grant Merciful Radhasoami Thy Grace and Protection"}

The spiritual experience one may have in the practices of Simran, Dhyan and Bhajan in the beginning should not be taken as full and complete. Rather, one should remain hopeful of getting more and more of internal realization. If one has no internal realization at all, then it is book knowledge. It is knowledge theoretical, but not realization; such a one is given to learning but not devoted to practices. As one makes headway in the meditation practices, one will go on having ever-new experiences. It is with a definite purpose that the whole of the Secrets have not been revealed in the Banis. As one advances internally, the Secrets will unfold themselves to one automatically, stage by stage. A partial realization is not enough. One should always remain hopeful of getting more and more realization.

Discourses

SURAT SHABDA YOGA MEDITATION:

*Simran is the spiritual practice of repeating God's Name.

*Dhyan is contemplating upon the Radiant Form of the Master and seeing the Light along the various inner stages or heavens within.

*Bhajan is the art of listening to the Sound Current in meditation with love and devotion, becoming one with IT, letting IT take us back Home again.

All of these holy spiritual practices are to be done with an attitude of love and devotion for the Supreme Being, the Ocean of Love and Compassion – the Lord of All Souls.
