In Search of A Genuine Master and Genuine Disciple

In Search of A Genuine Master and Genuine Disciple

Sant Mat Quote of the Day:

In Search of A Genuine Path and the Secrets of the Supreme Being, By Huzur Maharaj 

"Suratia [the soul], after exercising much discernment, has adopted Guru Mat [Path or Teachings of the Guru]. She had been searching for the Original Abode, but could get no inkling of it anywhere. Some advocate idol-worship, others sing praise of pilgrimages. Some remain stuck in rites, rituals and other observances. The sophists pose, but remain stuck in mana (mind) and maya (illusion). Being disappointed with all these people, Suratia [the soul] made search and enquiry concerning Sant Mat. By sheer good fortune, she happened to meet a satsangi [initiate] who gave her the necessary information. He explained to her the greatness of Sat Mat [the Path of Eternal Truth]. He gave out the secrets of the Supreme Being, Beloved Radhasoami. He explained to her the great importance of love for and devotion to Guru and appraised her of the methods of Surat Shabd Yoga [Union of the Soul with the Divine Light and Sound Current]. On performing the spiritual practices she experienced bliss within, and her body and mind both attained tranquility. She joined satsang. By attending satsang she awakened her dormant luck. With doubts and delusions gone, and ever-new love and faith aroused within, she practices the methods of Surat Shabd Yoga with love and affection. Her soul constantly soars higher and higher. Guru graciously enables her to witness His ever-new acts of grace. Adopting the shelter and support of the Lord of the Soul in her heart, she accomplishes her task by His grace."  (from, Prem Bani Radhasoami, Volume Two, Agra, India)

In Search of A Genuine Disciple/Student

"One who gives an ear to words of truth and justice, and ponders over them, it is only to him that these words bring happiness. But one, who accepts a word without going into the depth of its meaning, does not benefit from it in any manner." (Saakhi Granth of Guru Kabir
