Notes About Today’s PODCAST: Dadu, the Compassionate Mystic of the East
Dadu Dayal: “Saints are the true redeemers, they make one see the Creator face to face. Having themselves crossed the ocean of the world, they take others across. They are the saviors of beings.”
“Do the repetition of God [God’s Name] and forget Him not. Fulfil the purpose of thy birth by practising concentration. Be steadfast in the remembrance of God. Practice meditation with love, and sing the glory of God. The human body is the door to salvation. Do the repetitions of God, the Creator of the universe.” (Dadu)
“One who, turning the attention inward, Brings it within the self, And fixes it on the Radiant Form of the Master, Is indeed wise, O Dadu. Fix your attention within; Sing always the inner Music with the soul. This mind then dances with ecstasy And enjoys the rhythmic beat. One sings within the self And the rhythmic Music is played. The mind dances with love.” (Dadu)
Dadu: “The Name of God is my sect. My way of living is control of the senses. For my deeds — watch my disciples: their goal is to be immersed in Ram [God].” (The Life Story of Dadu Dayal — The Book of Janma Lila, By Jan Gopal)
“I bow before the immaculate, Divine Gosvami [Supreme Being]. Through my Guru’s favor I have been given all purity. I greet all the Sants: through their devotion I drink the nectar of Ram [God]. There is no end to the number of Sants who appeared in the Yugas [Epochs] of Sat, Treta, Dvapar, and Kali. I sing of the celebrated one I have heard of, and bow my head to all the others.” (Jan Gopal, disciple of Dadu Dayal)
A quote from the 16th century Indian Master Dadu, who outlined the Sant Mat vision of the 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 upon 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 and 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, again and again. With care in thought, word and deed, you will cross to the other shore.
“Remembering God, life is successful, if spent in the service of others.” (Sant Dadu the Compassionate Mystic quoted in, The Life Story of Dadu Dayal — The Book of Janma Lila, By Jan Gopal)
God is the Ocean of Love.
