Light and Sound on the Path: Life Has Been Wasted If We Do Not Enter the Eye Center

 


Light and Sound on the Path: Life Has Been Wasted If We Do Not Enter the Eye Center


“If we listen to Satsang every day, and we do Bhajan Simran every day, then we will definitely get success on this Path, and we will be fit for getting the Grace of our Masters.” (Baba Ram Singh Ji)

The Third Eye in Meditation: “Close your eyes as in sleep, and look sweetly, lovingly, intently into the middle of the darkness lying in front of you. You will see a dark veil. That which sees the dark veil within, without the help of your physical eyes, IS the inner eye.” (Kirpal Singh)

“The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.” — Meister Eckhart

Hazur Baba Sawan Singh: “The Saints tell mankind that above this dark world there are many higher and more beautiful spiritual regions, and that everyone in due course of time will rise to those regions. They speak always of the Divine Music of Naam, the Word of God, which their disciples hear and which, by its purifying and magnetic power, cleanses the minds of the disciples and draws their souls up to the higher domains.”

Simran Is The First Step In Sant Mat


Simran is the art of repeating a name or names of God in one’s mind (manas jap, guru mantra) for the purpose of Remembering the Divine — Practicing the Presence of God. It is a way to remain spiritually awake in a world of slumber, a way to remain centered instead of being thrown off-center by the influence of maya (illusion). In the Path of the Saints and Mystics this spiritual exercise of repeating or chanting Names of God is done not only in meditation practice, but as often as possible throughout the day as a way to spiritualize all aspects of life, inner and outer. Baba Ram Singh on Simran:


“So, when you are here, you should do Simran* as much as possible, while you are walking, while you are eating, and while going about your other work. And with this, you will get the Grace of Baba Ji. Because, when we do Simran like this and then when we sit for meditation, it is the Simran, which we have done the day long, that helps us at the time of meditation. If we are not doing Simran, then our mind is scattered, and all the other things then affect our meditations. So, we should spend as much time as possible and maximize our Simran. We should focus our attention towards Simran. Simran is the first step in Sant Mat, and it is only with Simran that we leave out the nine doors and come to the Tenth.” (Baba Ram Singh Ji, from the satsang discourse, Simran Is The First Step In Sant Mat)


*Simran [Remembrance]: “Repetition of names or thoughts; in Sant Mat, the simran of worldly thoughts is controlled through the Simran of the Five Charged Names, repeated by an initiate throughout the day and when sitting for meditation as a means of collecting the thought currents at the Third Eye Center; also used as a password of sorts to higher planes and protection from Negative Power influences.” (Glossary in the discourses of Baba Ram Singh)


Give Priority To Your Meditation (from a Satsang Discourse of Baba Ram Singh Ji)


THE PATH OF SANT MAT is the path of love and affection. Mahatmas have been explaining that the soul is a form of love and the Master is also a form of love. God Almighty Himself is a form of love. And the Path of going back to God Almighty is also a form of love. But ever since the soul has separated from God Almighty and has got engulfed in the net of Kal and Maya, it has separated from God Almighty and has manifested itself in the form of Kal and Maya here.


So, that same love, which has manifested in the outward pursuits of Kal and Maya here, if we are able to inwardly direct that same love and affection, then we can move within at great speed and velocity.


Therefore, our love and affection have to be prioritized. And, oftentimes, we prioritize all of the other things, all of our mundane activities, and other things. And because we have a love and affection for those things, we prioritize those and we say, “Okay, after we have finished all of those activities, we will sit for meditation.” And then, sometimes we sit for meditation; sometimes we do not sit for meditation. And that’s how our meditation gets affected.


So, if you have love and affection for your Master, then you will prioritize that love and affection for giving priority to your meditation first.


It is, therefore, incumbent on a disciple, once he has been initiated, to prioritize his meditation. He should always keep that to the forefront and do his meditation first, and then all of the other activities should follow that.


And why do we do this meditation? It is so that we get free from this ocean of life and death and we rid ourselves from this illness of life and death. And that is the technique — that is the trick — that the Master has taught us. That is what we should do — and do it with a priority.

The Ladder Of The Sound Current Connects The Soul Back To God Almighty


Ever since God has created this whole Creation and has created the human body and human form, He has created the Path to go back, for the soul to go back, and meet God Almighty within the human form. This is not a Path created by any Mahatmas. It is a Path created by God Almighty Himself. It is a natural law that has made this. On the same Path, Saints have gone and met God Almighty with the Grace of Their Masters. And, on the same Path, we can also go with the Grace of our Masters and meet God Almighty.


There is one Sound Current emanating from God Almighty coming down, but there are five planes in-between. And each plane, where the Sound Current traverses, it makes a different sound.


So, this ladder of Sound Current is there connected within, and each step we take, each plane we cross, that same ladder is connected internally. The same Sound Current gets connected and goes back to God Almighty. It is on the Sound Current only that the soul rides and goes back to God Almighty, all which are connected within.


But, to manifest this Sound Current within, we have to take the help of Simran and Dhyan and we have to concentrate our attention, we have to focus our attention from outside, within. And that is how we will get to manifest the Sound Current within.


Our mind is scattered in outward, worldly thoughts. And it is continuously in the repetition of these thoughts, which are all outwardly drawn. And that is why the mind is also outwardly drawn. By doing the Simran of the Naam given at the time of initiation, we repeat that and the mind starts getting focused, and its attention gets focused within.


When we sit for meditation, we close our eyes and then we focus our thoughts at the back of the Eye Center. And our faculty of visualization is also there, which also visualizes the Form of the Master within. And by doing Simran, we concentrate our attention and focus at the back of the Eye Center. Then, automatically, when we sit for meditation, our attention starts getting focused on the Form of a Master at the back of the Eye Center.


There are the rishis and munis who also do meditation. But their meditation and their focus and attention are slightly different. Instead of focusing at the back of the Eye Center, what they do is, they start focusing on the chakras.


So, in the physical body, we have six chakras. And starting from the lowest chakra, they start doing the mantra. Each chakra has a mantra, and what they do is, they repeat the mantras. And, when a certain number of times that mantra is done, tens of thousands of times, then that chakra opens up. And, that way, they start progressing by opening each of these chakras and going inside and up within their body. So, for them to take and open each of the six chakras and then the seventh above that and go up, inside, it takes a very, very long time.


Mahatmas say that when someone has to climb a mountain and he is midway, standing on the mountain, there is no point in going down to the bottom of the mountain and then climbing all the way up again. Instead, he should climb upwards from where he is.


So, the soul is currently situated at the back of the Eye Center. And, therefore, Saints say that you start from there. You start focusing there and focus your attention where the soul and the Master stay. That is at the back of the Eye Center.


So, therefore, we should lovingly focus our attention and do the Simran and the Dhyan, that is, the contemplation of the Form of the Master while doing Simran at the back of the Eye Center. When we do this lovingly, we also start getting the Grace of the Master there.


* * * 


So, this morning time is good. We have woken up. Our mind is fresh and it is quiet. A quiet mind is good for meditation. So, we should close our eyes and get connected to Simran and Dhyan.

“Look at God within yourself, how ‘God is Light.’ For his Nature is a glorious, many-splendored Light. He manifests the Light of his Nature to those who love Him in all the worlds…” — John of Dalyatha, Syriac Mystic


Ode 12: The Truth, the Word or Sound of the Logos, and the Aeons… the Cosmic Worlds


The Word of Truth filled me,

and in order that I might speak it.

And like the flowing of water,

truth flowed from my mouth,

and my lips declared its fruits.

And it increased in me it’s Gnosis,

because the true Word is the

mouth of the Lord

and the gates of his Light.

And the most high gave the Word to his Aeons,

the interpreters of his beauty,

and the narrator’s of his glory,

and the confessors of his thought,

and the revealers of his mind,

and the teachers of his works.

For the swiftness of the Word is indescribable,

and like its narration, so are its

swiftness and sharpness,

and its course is Limitless.

For it is the Light and dawning of thought.

And the Aeons spoke to one another by the Word

and they acquired speech,

those who were silent.

And from its was friendship and Harmony,

and they spoke, one to another by it.

And they were goaded by the Word

and knew him who had made them,

because they were in Harmony.

Because the mouth of the Most High

spoke to them,

For the dwelling place of the Word is man,

and it’s truth is love.

Light and Sound on the Path: May You Always Find Genuineness in What’s Presented Here As We Explore A Spiritual Path Called Sant Mat

 

This Light 

 

Astonishing, this light, so different — 

even with eyes closed you see it.

It was never lit, nor does it ever go out

— the luminous soul makes it shine eternally.

No colour yet all colours,

this light is illumined by life itself.

Nila says, Today God in his grace

used my offering of the lamp of devotion

simply as an excuse

to let me experience this light.

 

— Niloba of Maharashtra

Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram Bahadur: “If someone’s mind is inordinately attracted towards some particular worldly affairs, or towards some particular person, or entertains strong feelings of enmity or grudge against anyone, then also he will have little love in the Holy Feet of the Supreme Being, and for this reason, his mind will not apply itself to devotional practices, and he will find little pleasure in them. To sum up, therefore, a true satsangi should as far as possible, detach himself [or herself] from worldly affairs every day, and should increase his love and attachment in the Feet of the Supreme Being. The extent to which his mind gets relieved of worldly attachments, is love in the Feet of the Supreme Being will increase and the bliss of Bhajan and Dhyan [meditation including inner Sound Meditation] will also be felt in a greater degree, and he will experience internally greater Daya [Grace].”

 

Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar: “The Lord thoughtfully spoke this word to Dariya: ‘Boundless indeed is My Naam. Let one hold fast to Naam with one-pointed attention — Kal [lord of time and illusion, the negative power] can never go near such a person. Let one merge one’s attention into Naam while standing or sitting, and let one direct one’s love to the Divine inner sight. If one bears the Satguru’s imprint, his authentic passport and his spiritual coin for transaction, one will certainly go across the ocean of the world (samsara). Such a one discards the deception of gods and goddesses and, being engaged in the true practice [surat shabd yoga], is steeped in the Lord’s love [bhakti]. Giving up delusion, he endearingly holds fast to the Beloved, nurturing the true love obtained from the Satguru. While standing or sitting he thinks of the Lord and remains absorbed in the Sound Current. He takes shelter under the Truth and thus brings Kal to defeat.'” (Book of Gyan Deepak)

Beyond the Material Five Senses are Subtle Spiritual Senses: Spiritual Seeing, Spiritual Hearing, etc…: “Since the exterior senses, by hearing, by sight, by the sense of smell and of touch, are not able to search out the innermost mysteries of the natures, on this account God conceals within the inner members a nature having senses more subtle than all the bodies. Now because of the subtleness of its stirrings, this nature searches out the hidden wisdom of the things created by the Lord of all.” (John the Solitary, “John the Solitary On the Soul”, Syriac mystic — I have a great fondness for the depth of the Syriac mystics)

 

“Within This Body” —

Mystic Poem of Sant Tulsi Sahib

 

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 say.

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).

Inner Sound Meditation Leading to Anami Oneness: “The ascension of the soul in the reverse direction of flow of streams of sounds can thus be compared to the swimming of fishes. Hence the Yoga of Sound has also been referred to as “mina marg” (mina meaning fish and marg meaning path). Thus, climbing further and further, leaving all the five spheres behind one after another, the soul finally transcends even the domain of the Quintessential Unstruck Sound and merges into the ‘Anami’ (Nameless/Soundless) or ‘Kaivalyatita’ (beyond Kaivalya or the Conscious) State to be one with [merge with] the Supreme Godhead, to be God Himself. Thus yoga or union or bhakti (devotion) gets completed.”

 

— Swami Achyutanand Baba, The Yoga of Inner Light and Sound

Excerpts from a Satsang Discourse by Baba Somanath Commenting on Verses of Soamiji Maharaj  (from Sar Bachan, Bachan 19, Shabd 13)

 

Soamiji Maharaj: “The Guru says all the world is blind. No one grasps the secret of the inner way.”

 

Baba Somanath: “This is the bani [hymn] of Param Sant Satguru Hazur Swami Ji. He says that all the world is blind. Why? In the beginning, the Almighty Lord put the Path to meet Him within us and then He sent us into this world. And if that inner eye opens, then we will reunite with the Lord. But through millions of yugas [vast epochs of time] and incarnations, we have been running outward. Lord Kal [the negative power] has placed the curtain of mind and Maya [illusion] over the soul and has cast it into the outer world. And becoming extroverted, the soul is always hurrying forward, never looking back to realize the True Home that it left so long ago.”  

 

Soamiji Maharaj: “Everyone is wandering outside aimlessly.  No one catches hold of the Shabd [Sound] within.”

 

Baba Somanath: “It is just like the water and the waves. Our entire lifespan is consumed counting the waves. Millions of yugas have passed in this way. But what is the nature of a wave? It is composed of water. But if we are under the illusion that the wave is something substantial in itself, if we forget the wave is only water, if we think of the wave as something separate from the water, then we do not understand its real nature.

 

“In the same way, all the jivas [souls], becoming infatuated with the pleasures created by mind and Maya, rush about in the external world and waste their allotted span of life. Under this illusion, the jiva says, ‘Who is equal to me? What shortcoming is there in me?’ We may think this, we may think that, but when the breaths finish what remains? Only a heap of earth, nothing more. We have become so identified with this heap of earth that we think it is our true self. And in our ignorance, we assert: ‘Who can compare with me?'”

 

Soamiji Maharaj: “The Guru proclaims ceaselessly: ‘Search for the Shabd within.'”

 

Baba Somanath: “The Satguru constantly tries to make us understand. What does He tell us? ‘Brother, take your mind away from the disturbance of this world, from ‘I and mine,’ from enjoying the sense pleasures, and fix it within at the point between the two eyes [third eye]. When the mind becomes concentrated, that Inner Power will call you of itself. That Power is the Sound Current, the Word, the Akash-bani (Etheric Sound). Concentrate your attention on that Sound Current — do not look this way and that.”

 

Soamiji Maharaj: “Only some rare worthy one stands firm on the support of the Master’s words.”

 

Baba Somanath: “As soon as the rare, worthy disciples hear the Guru’s words, they take them to their hearts.  The instant they hear those words they act upon them. But the unworthy disciples take the Guru’s words as ordinary and carelessly discard them.

 

“Who are the worthy disciples of the highest order? ‘They meet with the True Guru if emancipation is written in their destiny.’  Whoever has once attained the inner darshan [vision] of the perfect Satguru, whoever has learned the inner secret, their work is accomplished. This is the highest grade of worthy disciple. Such a disciple is like the pearl oyster who swims to the surface of the water and opens its mouth to receive the raindrops that fall during the swati nakshatra. As soon as it catches that swati raindrop, it closes its mouth, and from that drop, it creates the priceless divine pearl in its within.

 

“So, Swami Ji Maharaj says that as soon as those rare worthy disciples hear the Guru’s words, they mold their lives according to His instructions. They act on His words and do not allow their minds to wander here and there. They never listen to the advice of the mind.”

 

Soamiji Maharaj: “Everything of the world appears flawed and false.  Only the devotion to the Guru is True.”

 

Baba Somanath: “Those souls who remain absorbed in the Naam day and night regard the world as a debased place. They understand the bonds that keep us shackled, and they see clearly the nets that Kal has spread. Now our love and affection for this outer world is so strong that we cannot leave it, so how can our love become attached to the Lord? Love is only way. Either you can attach it to the Naam, or you can attach it to the world.

 

Soamiji Maharaj: “Going into the shelter of Radhaswami [Lord of the Soul], the jiva swims across the ocean of existence.”

 

Baba Somanath: “Whoever does the practice of Surat and Shabd* will cross over the ocean of existence.”

Light and Sound on the Path: If Your Eye Be Single, Your Whole Body Shall Be Full Of Light

 


Light and Sound on the Path: If Your Eye Be Single, Your Whole Body Shall Be Full Of Light




Podcast: The Sermon on the Light — If Your Eye Be Single, Your Whole Body Shall Be Full Of Light: I begin by sharing this unique arrangement of passages on the theme of spiritual-mystical Light attributed to Jesus found in all of the available ancient texts. I call it, “The Sermon on the Light”, since it really does read, and when said out loud, sounds like a spiritual discourse on the theme of Light spoken long ago in antiquity by a spiritual Master to some of his students. Also today, a discourse on how to find your third or single eye. “If your eye be single, your whole body shall be full of Light.”

Satsang Discourses from: Sawan Singh, Baba Somanath, Baba Ram Singh, and Kirpal Singh

“Love enables us to feel a kinship with all life on earth — to feel that all are children of the same benevolent Father. All jealousy and ‘otherness’ disappear from the heart as soon as love comes in. Love is the path of complete self-sacrifice and giving one’s heart away. Love is a constant and everlasting pull. A heart in which love has made a permanent abode is no longer subject to the mutations of time. It is free from transmigration. It is always enraptured with the ever-abiding sweetness of love. Love is a bond which can neither be loosened nor severed. Love is the vital sustenance of the world — the life sap of our very existence. It is the foundation of purity and simplicity. Without it the world would be an abandoned wasteland. It is the vital essence that keeps our life flourishing and prosperous.” (Hazur Baba Sawan Singh, My Submission)



“Until you understand the Truth, love will not enter your heart. And until the love manifests within you, that Almighty Lord, who is love personified, will not meet you.  A friendship is formed when the love of the Lord and the love of the soul become one, both without and within. When your within overflows with love, then that Loving Power will be attracted to you.  He will become your Friend.” — Baba Somanath Ji



Satsang And Meditation Are The Nutrients Of Our Soul, Spiritual Discourse by Baba Ram Singh (in the lineage of Baba Somanath and Huzur Baba Sawan Singh)


Santji would often say this, “Leave a hundred things and go and attend the Satsang. And leave a thousand things and sit for meditation.” Because this is the true work for which God Almighty has given us this body.


All the other things that we are doing, we do for others. Whether it is nurturing of our children, it is for the children. Whether it is working in employment or farming or for a business, it is for that particular occupation or service or business. So, all of the things that we are engaged in is all work being done for others.


So, what is the work that we are really doing for ourselves for which we have been sent into this world?


Satsang and meditation are the nutrients of our soul.


Sant Ji used to often say, “Like we give food to the body, it is very important for us to give food and water for the soul.”


So, the Satsang that we listen to is the water that we are giving to the soul and the Bhajan Simran that we are doing is the food that we are giving to the soul. When we give this food and water — the Satsang and Bhajan Simran — to the soul, the soul becomes stronger and the mind becomes weaker.


On the contrary, when we do our outward things, then the mind becomes stronger and the soul is becoming weaker. So, it is very important for us to give proper food and water to the soul.


It is very important for us to listen to Satsang every day and sit for meditation and do our Simran Dhyan Bhajan every day. Whenever we work out a schedule for the day, we should always prioritize our meditation and keep that first on the schedule and complete our meditation. And, only then, get on with the other duties.


We do the opposite. We usually give time for every other thing and then, if we have some spare time, we give it for meditation or Simran. And we often forget our Simran and meditation.


Now, when we do like this, mind becomes stronger, and then it takes us away from all of this.


As to why we do not do our meditation and we do not listen to Satsang regularly, it is because we do not have faith — adequate faith — in it. We do not have that much love and affection for our Master and for our Bhajan Simran. We are manifested completely outside. So, we are identifying ourselves with everything outside. We have complete faith in what we see outside and we have our full love and affection for everything that we are doing outside. And that is why we are not able to sit and do that meditation regularly and listen to Satsang regularly.


When we make it a habit of sitting regularly for our meditation and we make it a habit to listen to Satsang every day, then slowly, our mind will become weaker and we will be able to spend more time doing our meditation. And we will start enjoying that meditation more.


So, we should make it a part of our schedule, our daily schedule, and we should prioritize our Bhajan Simran and keep that as the first thing in the schedule. By doing that, our love and affection will grow towards our Master and towards Naam and meditation. And we will start, more and more, enjoying it and doing it.


So, the atmosphere is very quiet and nice and we should make the most of this. We should close our eyes and sit for our meditation.


(Morning Meditation Talk, Aug 8th, 2018, Guddella Ashram, Andhra Pradesh)



“Meditation is the process of withdrawing the attention from the world outside, and focusing it at the seat of the soul in the body, behind and between the eyebrows. This point is known as the inner eye, third eye, the single eye… In order to withdraw our attention and focus it on this point, mind must be controlled and stilled. Sit in one pose, and move not your head, limbs or eyes. Sit straight but relaxed with no tension in the body below. Sit still, please. Close your eyes as in sleep, and look sweetly, lovingly, intently into the middle of the darkness lying in front of you. You will see a dark veil. That which sees the dark veil within, without the help of your physical eyes, is the inner eye.” — Kirpal Singh


“True discipleship does not start until one has risen above body consciousness.” — Kirpal Singh


“He who has once been initiated by a competent Master is assured, once and for all, his liberation from the bondage of mind and matter; it is but a question of time. The seed of spirituality sown in him is bound to sprout and fructify. The spirituality when awakened and the spiritual experience gained must develop, and the Master Power cannot rest contented until the child owned is reared and taken home to the house of the Father.


“Man has got himself so enmeshed in mind and the outgoing faculties that his release from them can only be brought about by struggle and perseverance. His plight is, in a way, similar to that of a bird that has been kept in a cage for so many years. Even if you should open the door of the cage, the bird will be loathe to fly out. Instead, it will fly from one side of the cage to the other, clinging with its talons to the wire mesh, but it does not wish to be free and fly out through the open door of the cage.


“Similarly, the soul has become so attached to the body and the outgoing faculties that it clings to outside things and does not wish to let go of them. It does not wish to fly through the door that has been opened by the Master at the time of Holy Initiation, at the threshold of which the Radiant Form of the Master is patiently waiting to receive the child disciple. True discipleship does not start until one has risen above body consciousness.” — Sant Kirpal Singh Ji
