Serving, Helping Others During This Life: “The advantage of being in the human mode of existence lies in giving and serving only, i.e. helping others as much as possible. Because, possibly you will not get this body [human form] again. This time you have been given this body, and so do not hesitate; serve others and that is all.” (Guru Kabir, Saakhi Granth of Kabir, 1008 Kabir Vani)
 
“Love is like a deep sea. Only that lover (of God) who will dive into it fearlessly shall be able to get the pearl of ultimate happiness in it. And one who will not be able to muster up enough courage to dive into it, shall remain sitting at the beach. He will remain without love in this world. How will he get the pearls of ultimate happiness then?” (Kabir 1008 Vani)
 
“This mind is like an intoxicated elephant. It needs goading with the goad of pure thoughts, so that it gets rid of worldly desires and drinks nectar of spiritual self control… The imaginations of the mind are just as innumerable as the innumerable waves of an ocean. If somehow this mind can become quit by itself, attainment of true knowledge like diamond will become easily accessible (everyman in this world is sad and restless because of lack of knowledge. This true knowledge can be attained only when the mind becomes quit.)” (Kabir 1008 Vani)

Book Review: Kabir 1008 Vani
by James Bean
Kabir 1008 Vani — Nectar of Truth and Knowledge
Essence of the Collection of Saakhis (the Saakhi Granth of Guru Kabir) in Simple Language and Style
Compiled by Lalchand Doohan Jigyasu
 
Translated into English by Kunwar Anil Kumar
 
Genres: Ethics, Genuine Ethical Foundation of Spirituality, Morality, Principles, Wisdom, Sant Mat, Kabir Panth, Meditation, Bhakti (Love and Devotion),
 
This is one of the most important books of Kabir to have. Kabir 1008 Vani is a very beautiful and impressive book of ethics and wisdom featuring 1008 sayings of Kabir, one of India’s greatest Masters and poet-mystics, who lived in northern India around six hundred years ago. As with Rumi, the Persian Sufi poet, in recent years Kabir has also become increasingly popular in the West. A few decades ago, the only translations of Kabir were, “Songs of Kabir” by Rabindranath Tagore published in 1915, and Robert Bly’s 1971 paraphrase or “versions” of Kabir, which were also based upon Tagore’s translation. These days however, there are literally hundreds of books available in the English language exploring the poetry and teachings of Sri Guru Kabir Sahib. The Saakhis (a term for a certain kind of poetic composition, a couplet giving testimony of eternal truths) are often used in the satsangs (spiritual gatherings in the name of Eternal Truth) of many spiritual paths based in India. It makes a great deal of sense that spiritual teachers would give satsang talks based upon the Saakhis of Kabir, as they are brimming with wisdom about how to integrate spiritual principles into one’s daily life. Kabir was critical of religious hypocrisy, going through the motions of outward rites and rituals without sincerity of heart. His path was that of Bhakti, meaning, love and devotion for the Beloved Supreme Spirit. For Kabir, the true church, mosque, or temple is within the body, within the human heart. The theme of the Saakhis is bringing all levels of our existence, more and more with each passing day, in body, speech, emotions, and thought, into harmony with the soul or spirit inside.

Program Outline
 
The Great Soul Soami Ji Maharaj (Radhasoami) was initiated by Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras, India, and after Sant Tulsi’s passing in 1843, Soami Ji was affiliated with a successor of Sant Tulsi by the name of Maharaj Girdhari Sahib. Thanks to Pramod for being my contact at the Lucknow Satsang, and Roohi for translating material from Hindi into English. We are blessed to access new verses of mystic poetry of Saints, which helps inspire spiritual practitioners to go within and meditate upon the inner Light and Sound of God. History can be liberating, opening up new vistas of appreciation and avenues of wisdom, as we endeavour to sit at the feet of the Masters.
 
Part of a Shabd of Soami Ji Maharaj from Lucknow:
 
“My MASTER introduced me to the identity of Soul, and I realised the self as highest element. (Main)
The Formless Purush is beyond the second door. 
Beholding Him, the soul became blissful. (1)
Inside this body is the whole creation of the Vedas,
The Perfect MASTER showed this to me. (2)
Inside is seen brilliant sunlight…
and in the inner sky
a huge ocean. (3)
Inside the inner cave are billions of suns…”

Since I don’t post newsletters or do emailings very often, below are collections of links that let you access daily spiritual quotes of the Masters shared frequently in social media, listen to, subscribe and share Sant Mat Satsang and other Spiritual Awakening Radio podcasts, and access the Sant Mat Spiritual E-Library, which is always being updated. 
 
Also below are a few significant articles on pandemic prevention, getting off the apocalypse train by the global banning of wildlife markets and worldwide adoption of the vegan diet to forever pull the plug on pathways leading to zoonotic diseases: Covid-19, Ebola, SARS, MERS, Mexican flu and HIV, etc…,  etc… a long history of human and animal suffering. It doesn’t have to be like this.

“Now beware in yourselves that your hearts do not become heavy with the eating of flesh and with the intoxication of wine and with the anxiety of the world, and that day come upon you suddenly; for as a snare it will come upon all them who sit on the surface of the earth.” (Jesus, Luke 21:34 and 35, the Old Syriac-Aramaic Gospel Manuscript: Evangelion da-Mepharreshe: the Curetonian Manuscript of the Four Gospels, with Readings of the Sinai Palimpsest and the Early Syriac Patristic Evidence)

Keith Akers writes: “The dispute over vegetarianism in the early church shows that the leadership of the Jerusalem church was vegetarian. The later history of Jewish Christianity indicates that Jewish Christianity was vegetarian and preserved this tradition of defending animals. Jesus’ attack on the animal sacrifice business demonstrates that Jesus himself shared these views.” (the article, Was Jesus a vegetarian? http://www.compassionatespirit.com/wpblog/2015/12/01/was-jesus-a-vegetarian/#more-2512 )
