Die To Live: Meditation -- Living a Spiritual Life -- This Time Through
Die To Live: Meditation
"The Sant Sat Guru, out of His grace, impresses upon all to engender love in the Feet of the Lord, who is all the time present within everyone. He enjoins upon them to proceed inwards by the practices of Surat Shabd Yoga [Inner Light and Sound Meditation], which they should perform, as far as they can, with all sincerity and love in this very life, and thus make it easy to some extent to traverse the path which they will have to tread at the time of death, and thus see things with their own eyes."
-- Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram, Prem Patra Radhasoami, Volume One:
Living a Spiritual Life
"No mission is of greater importance to a person than the awareness of his own consciousness, the profound significance and purpose of his existence on earth and to find out the path for ultimate bliss, eternal happiness and cheerfulness i.e. the quest for truth." -- Quote from the Shabd Pratap Ashram website associated with the mission of the younger brother of Soamiji Maharaj: Pratap Singh Ji Seth (Chachaji Maharaj)
This Time Through
Mystic poem by a 16th century Master of the inner Light and Sound by the name of Sant Dadu Dayal of Rajasthan, who outlined the Sant Mat vision of a 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 on 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 in 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.
With care in thought, word and deed,
you will cross to the other shore.”
