Awakening to the Compassionate Lord of the Soul

Awakening to the Compassionate Lord of the Soul

Radhasoami Reality:
{Radhaswami Dayal ki Daya Radhaswami Sahai:
"Grant Merciful Radhasoami Thy Grace and Protection"}

Sants [Saints] say that for the welfare of their soul, it is the duty of all human beings that as soon as they are able to understand, they should enquire about the true Supreme Being and how to approach Him. They should engender love for Him, and commence the practice of Surat Shabd Yoga as taught by Radhasoami Dayal. This Yoga can be practised easily without any risk by everyone, irrespective of age or sex. They will then see His helping hand in trouble and misfortune as well as at the time of death. Their love and faith will go on increasing. They will not undergo the torments and torsions of death. The reason is that this practice involves the elevation of the spirit just as it takes place at the time of death. Therefore, he who commences this work, will receive great help in his practice, when, at the last moment, there is natural withdrawal of spirit. Moreover, he will see within himself the Light and refulgence of the grace of the Supreme Being. Due to this his spirit will feel happy and exhilarated and will exultantly rise. It will thus leave the body easily, without any pain.

The spiritual practice given out by the Supreme Being Radhasoami Dayal and the Sants sent by Him, results in gradual withdrawal, concentration and ascension of the spirit. This is done in the same manner as at the time of death; the spirit recedes towards the brain from every limb and part of the body. When eyes are turned up death takes place. As this practice is performed properly the bliss and joy of withdrawal and elevation of spirit are experienced internally. The ardour and zeal of the practitioner go on increasing as he gets Darshan (vision) of the Swarup [form] and of the Light and refulgence and hears the Shabd [inner Sound]. His spirit, being in a state of ecstasy rises higher and higher. At the time of death, the spirit naturally withdraws and ascends with great force. Therefore the spirit will, at that time, receive much palpable help in its elevation and ascension. The Supreme Father Radhasoami Dayal [merciful Lord of the Soul] by His true form, i. e., Shabd Form, and Satguru Din Dayal [merciful to the humble], by His subtle form, will grant Darshan [vision] and take the spirit in His lap lovingly and affectionately to higher region of happiness and joy and locate it there.
