Light and Sound on the Path (Sant Mat, Radhasoami): Satlok Sachkhand is Our True Home, and, Go Within Or Go Without


Light and Sound on the Path (Sant Mat, Radhasoami): Satlok Sachkhand is Our True Home, and, Go Within Or Go Without: "Within This Body" -- Mystic-Poem of Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras

Satlok Sachkhand is Our True Home, Baba Ram Singh 

Swamiji Maharaj tries to awaken souls like us who have lost and forgotten the devotion of God Almighty. Swamiji Maharaj in the first line of his bani tries to explain be very very cautious and thoughtful as this world is a LIE, unreal and illusion. But ordinary people and people like us think that we can see the whole world with our eyes. We see that all people are going to work, doing their jobs, business, etc... and many other things. But Master says it’s totally unreal, rather it's a complete LIE. To see reality/truth you must obey the command of your master and do your Simran and Bhajan for 2.5 to 3 hours daily. Leave all nine senses below and contemplate at the 10th Door. See with your knowledge, i.e. Wisdom Eye, so you can see the real truth. From these eyes we see an unreal world. The world which we are watching through these eyes is destructive and will get destroyed today or tomorrow, because this world is materialistic. Understand this very seriously, things which get destroyed are a LIE.

So what’s real? Soul is real, Master is real, God Almighty is real, Simran is real. Only these four things are real. Even in the community where we live it is not real. It is given to us only for four days to get our karma. So Saints say what are those four days? Childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age.

With childhood and adolescence are growth, nourishment and studies. With adulthood, marriage, children, and business, etc. Old age is very miserable because in this age the efficiency of the body is almost zero. We cannot perform any work properly as all senses become so weak and poor. Also, at home nobody gives respect. That’s why the 4th stage of life is utterly painful and miserable.

You see the human life cycle of four days, which we assume is real. In the end time nothing goes with us, neither our family, money, health, possessions, not even our body. This is only meant for reaping our karma's as we have to take from someone and we have to give it to somebody. Once our account of karma is finished each and everybody starts leaving us. That’s why Saints have termed this world as birth and death, happiness and sorrow, as it belongs to Kaal and Maya. This world is not meant for you. Neither do you belong to this world. Your true world is Satlok Sachkhand. God Almighty's home is your true home. You are an integral part of God Almighty, and till the time our soul reaches the true home, we won't have any happiness or satisfaction in any of these worldly objects.

This world is not real. We have taken birth and death a million times. We don't even know where our last life was from, where we have come from, and which place we will be born again.

That’s why Saints and Mahatmas spread awareness of Naam and remind us all to be very thoughtful and cautious in a way that doesn't assume it for real why? Because this world belongs to Kaal and Maya.

You belong to that ecstatic world where there is no question of life and death, happiness and sorrow, thirst and hunger; it's only about peace and joy.

That’s why Saints and Mahatmas take a human life form to get us all back to Satlok Sachkhand where we have come from. They don’t come here to entangle us with this world nor worldly relations.

So Swamiji Maharaj explains to us what the reason is that makes our soul come back again to this world is our ego. 'Me', 'myself', these two have entangled us brutally. This egoism has taken all of us to all 8.4 million life forms and cycles of birth and death. That's why Swamiji Maharaj says sacrificing this ego has no side-effects. Rather, it has significant advantages, which will liberate your soul. You see Emperor Sikander wanted to conquer the whole world and wanted to steal all wealth and possessions from each kingdom but had died very young due to his ego and greed. At last, his repentance couldn't let him see his mother when he was about to die.

So Saints and Mahatmas don't belong to this world. When we have taken birth, we come empty handed, when we leave, we will go empty handed.

You are not body nor mind, you are an integral part of God Almighty. But living for so many ages we have mistakenly understood this world as our true home. (Satsang Discourse of Baba Ram Singh)

Go Within Or Go Without: "Within This Body" -- Mystic-Poem of Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras

Within this body breathes the secret essence. Within this body beats the heart of the Vedas. 

Within this body shines the entire Universe, so the saints reveal. 

Hermits, ascetics, celibates all are lost, seeking Him in endless guises. 

Seers and sages perfectly parrot the scriptures and holy books, blinded by knowledge. 

Their pilgrimage, and fasting, and striving but delude 

Despite their perfect practice, they discover no destination. 

Only the Saints who know the body's heart have attained the Ultimate, O Tulsi. 

Realize this, and you've found your freedom (while teachers trapped in tradition know only the mirage in the mirror).
