'The Narration of Queen Indra Mati'
I came to her house: Karunamai entered her Inner Self. (See also the subsection 'I went into the palace' in the illustration to 'The Narration of Mandodari.')
She gave me a throne: The Inner Throne, on which God sits. This refers to the heart, as the term is used in the terminology of the Saints. The Saints use the term heart for the seat of the soul – therefore it does not refer to the heart-chakra or the physical heart, which is the seat of the active mind.
Accordingly, Kirpal Singh said the following:
[…] So all Masters say,
The heart has been given to you as a Sacred Trust. Don’t misappropriate it. It is meant for God; let only God, and no other thing, sit on that throne.
by Kirpal Singh, 1894–1974
When the Lord sits upon the prepared throne, the soul merges into Him, and the two become One.
No Love without Fear,
by Kirpal Singh, 1894–1974
And washed my feet:
In this regard, Kirpal Singh said:
[…] Once I told Him that in the old days, there were systems you see, Masters washed Their feet and gave Their followers the water, water sanctified by this charging. Then the times came when they were made to sit before Master’s Face and look into His Eyes … Soul speaks through the eyes – in this way they received the charging. Then the time came, the Masters would make something, some silks or something like that, and charge the work – 'All right, you have it.' Then again the time came, they used to bow down and touch the Master’s Feet.
And our Master used to say,
Well, what is lying down there, I’m here. What are you up to? I’m here, through the Eyes.
Now I say,
Well all right, folding hands is sufficient.
Folding hands means you look into the eyes. Why go down? […]

XXIV. Morning Darshan 1970 / 10 December,
by Kirpal Singh, 1894–1974
Parshad: Any gift, often food, given by a Master or Saint, carries His charging and is called Parshad; but the highest type of Parshad are the leftovers of the Master’s – or the Saint’s – dinner table or any food touched or even looked at by Him.
The same worship is given to Charan Amrit, or drinking the washings from the Master’s feet as described above. Both these practices are considered dirty and degrading by Hindus and, thus, their willingness to break these taboos shows their worship of the Master.
Both these practices are also mentioned in the Gospels: Jesus was giving Parshad while sitting with His disciples at the Last Supper (St Mark 14:22-24); Charan Amrit corresponds to the practice of kissing and washing the Master’s feet, as described in St Luke 7:37-50 and St John 12:3-8.
In the 21st century Saints give Parshad, but They are not interested in Their disciples to wash Their feet and drink the water.
However, in the same degree as people receive True Parshad and do not use it to weed out their imperfections but consider it as a material advantage or a convenience only, they lose the Inner Blessing correspondingly. Since Kirpal Singh’s embodiment till today – 2012 – this occurs more intensely.
My body is different: One of the implications of Gyan’s promise to Kal not to fully manifest in the first three yugas is that He does not have to inhabit one of Kal’s bodies. So His body did not have the same needs as the physical bodies of other people. In Kali Yuga however Kabir took birth into a physical body.
Prakritis: The prakritis – basic attributes of matter – are subtle forms in varying proportionate parts of the elements. There are 25 prakritis – five per element.
1) ether – desires, anger, shyness, fear, amorousness.
2) air – running, walking, smelling; contracting, expanding.
3) fire – hunger, thirst, sleep; personality; laziness.
4) water – ojas power (vital fluid); blood, fat, urine, saliva.
5) earth – bones, flesh, skin, veins, hair.
Artificial water and air: The body lives especially by water and air. Without nutrition man can stay alive for some time. Without air however he asphyxiates agonisingly within a few minutes and without water he dies of thirst after three or four days. Since in general the Soul is identified with the body, these forms of death are some of the most terrible things ever. Therefore the body should be provided with clean water and fresh air above all.
The reason for drowning is not the water but one’s own fear. In the Inner Realms the Soul can drown in the ocean of life when she wants to cross it by herself, that is, she works on her own intention for the Truth and eventually puts It aside. (See the subsection 'Without a Master he will want to cross the ocean' in the illustration to 'The Indispensability of the Guru.')
Crores: Indian numeral. (See the illustration 'Crores' in the subchapter 'How Vishnu turned black.')
Agar Vasna: 'Abode of fragrance.' Here the Souls remain with the desire of the Almighty. (See in the subchapter 'In the Beginning' the subtitle 'The Manifestation of the sixteen Shabdas.')
Yamraj: The king of death, one of the aspects of Kal. He bears this name in his function as the ruler over the fourteen yamas (dark angels of death; see the subsection 'Yam Doot' in this illustration below).
As there are 'fourteen jewels' (see the subsection 'First, second and third churning' in the illustration to 'The Creation of the lower Worlds'), so there are also fourteen yamas.
Kal Takshak: Takshak is a serpent king from Indian mythology; here he is identified with Kal who also sometimes appears within as a serpent. (Compare also the role of the serpent in the bible.)
Baba Sawan Singh wrote in a letter to a disciple:
Letter from 27 September 1919
Some people and cultures believe that serpents that appeare in dream announce forthcoming prosperity. But this is not the case.
Having realised the astral light, one can dance at the serpent’s – the mind’s – head, as Moses did it.
Kirpal Singh once told about Guru Nanak who was lying in meditation under a tree. A cobra stood before Him in order to guard His face against the sun. Continuing, He reported:
We had a similar event in our Satsang meetings at Delhi. About 2000 people were sitting there; and while I was giving a talk, one cobra, a little cobra, came out and stood on the stage just like that (Master demonstrates) in front of you. And the people said:
Here is a cobra coming!
Never mind; go on with it. Let him come and stand here.
And he – that cobra – stood for one full hour, hearing the talk that was going on, looking at me. When the talk was over, he sneaked away, and the people said,
Let us kill him.
– Why? He has not done you anything. Why kill him?
So this is all meant to say, if you have Love for all, even the snakes won’t harm you. We have got a proverb: 'Be wise like snakes.' Snakes are very wise, mind that. They at once catch the radiation, what thoughts are radiated from you. When you see a snake and think, 'Oh, kill him!' the very thought goes out and he safeguards himself by attacking. If you have no evil thoughts for anybody, they won’t do any harm to you.
What is True Living –
Talk from 11 December 1963,
by Kirpal Singh, 1894–1974
Kirpal Singh said correspondingly:
When a man has all Love, even the snakes come and bow before him.
So, once a disciple of Kirpal Singh, who was blessed with Naam by Him after 1974, told about this incident:
One day, he experienced within, that Kal Purush came in the form of a colossal green serpent, which slowly crept towards Kirpal’s Sarovar. All present initiates ran away, but he remained; he did not have any fear. Finally the serpent bowed before Kirpal’s Sarovar reverentially. When the disciple asked Kirpal – within –, why the others had run away, He said: 'They did not have any love.'

* A Sarovar is a water basin based on the Mansarovar, the Spiritual Lake in Daswan Dwar. Guru Arjan, for instance lead establish such a Sarovar at the Golden Temple in Amritsar. At the time of the Guru this Temple had been a place of blessing. Today, however, it has lost its Spiritual Function. During His physical embodiment on earth, Kirpal Singh established a Sarovar in the Manav Kendra (see the explanation on 'Manav Kendra' in the subsection 'The helmsman of the Souls of Jambu Island' in the illustration to 'The Tale of Dharam Das’ previous Births – Part II'). After His physical departure, this Sarovar dried up because of the lack of love of the local initiates. In Kirpal Sagar has been established a Sarovar at the behest of Kirpal Singh too. Nowadays, also this place is no place of Spiritual Blessing anymore – because of the unfortunate wrongdoings of the initiates. See also the books of the series 'Kirpal’s Mission': 'The Explanation of Para Vidya and its Alienation' (Volume II) and 'The True Kirpal Sagar' (Volume III).
Destiny is settled: No one can go through the transformation which is called death until his/her pralabdh karma or destiny is fulfilled.
Serving the King: Matrimonial service in all concerns of the everyday life. When the wants of the partner are supplied, one is free for the Spiritual Practices. To carry out one’s duty in matrimony is no breach of chastity and cannot be an encumbrance to the Spiritual Progress.
Yam Doot: Doot means messenger. Yam Doot is usually translated as angel of death, as they are the messengers of Yama, the death god. There are good and dark angels of death. The good ones are the kinsmen for instance, who had already departed, and who kindly ask the Soul to come with them. The dark ones ruthlessly pull the Soul out of the body. Both bring the Soul in front of the tribunal.
Kirpal Singh stressed that the family members are the angels of death.
When an initiate leaves the world, one should arrange that nobody stands at the foot of the bed because the Master stands there and takes along the Soul through the eyes.
Looked for the signs: Negative entities can imitate the Master’s form but not completely – only enough to fool someone who wants to be fooled.
When Kal appears in the form of the Master he can be identified by his small forehead and the yellow eyes.
In the book 'A Great Saint – Baba Jaimal Singh', Kirpal Singh reports of an corresponding experience which His Master Sawan Singh once had:
A Great Saint / Baba Jaimal Singh (First Edition, 1960) –
III. / (iii) The Perfect Master,
by Kirpal Singh, 1894 – 1974
Simran: If she had done Simran earlier, Yam Doot had not been able to slap her and the Master had heard it and had come. This is one of the uses and effects of Simran: to protect the disciple from negative harassments.
As already mentioned above, the Simran given by a Saint, His representative or a Khalsa, instantly sends for the Master- or Christ-Power, if it is repeated sincerely.
Finished the difficult Kal: Paid off her outstanding karmic debts, so that she could go to Sach Khand.
The Souls came and embraced her: The Souls from Sach Khand who do not have any desire to go anywhere else and always remain attached to the feet of Sat Purush. (See the subsection 'Agar Vasna' in this illustration above and the subsection 'His desire is very fragrant' in the illustration to 'In the Beginning.')
