'The Tale of Dharam Das' previous Births'
Dharam Das’ previous Births: This part of the Anurag Sagar demonstrates the Master’s infinite patience in rescuing a lost Soul.
But for all those who are initiated at the beginning of the 21st century, at the end of the ages, it is time to go.
Kirpal Singh analogously said the following:
These who do not go Home now voluntarily have a long way to go.
Sudarshan: Supach Sudarshan, whom Karunamai liberated in the Dwapar Yuga. (See the subchapter 'The Narration of Supach Sudarshan.')
Servant: In marriage, the wife is the servant of the husband. In the same way, a Soul who has been initiated and has becomes a Conscious Co-Worker of the Divine Plan is the servant of the Almighty.
Nima and Niru: Members of the Julaha (or Muslim weaver) caste, residents of Kashi. These two were Kabir’s historical parents.
For many days: His childhood. He grew up normally although as a Swateh Guru, He was spiritually adult ab initio. He accepted Ramananda as His Guru at an early age, and totally bewildered His parents.
Many of Kabir’s bhajans, or popular hymns, testify to His difficulties with His mother and her lack of belief in Him.
Jyeshth: Month of the Hindu calendar, as well as of calendars related to it. The month Jyeshth, also called Jeth, Jyestha or Jetha, nearly lasts from mid-May to mid-June.
Understanding me as a child: Often parents of an initiate do not accept the Truth from him, because they still regard him as their child with all his previous strengths and weaknesses.
Sukrit: The Soul whose essence is Dharam Das. In the chapter 'The Tale of Dharam Das’ previous Births' it is illustrated which births this Soul had taken before she was liberated by Kabir and went to Sach Khand. Thereafter she was sent back to the world again by Sat Purush and embodied as Dharam Das. However, she was trapped by Kal so that Kabir was ordered to liberate here again. Since Dharam Das accepted the Shabd he is Kabir’s ornament now. Also Guru Nanak made Lena His 'Angad' – ornament.
Many years, Kabir and Guru Nanak lived in the world at the same time. Both were Swateh Gurus (see 'Godman – III. Gradations in Mastership,' by Kirpal Singh, 1894–1974) and both left behind an ornament.
Water: Of the ocean of the world.
Amin: Dharam Das’ wife.
Recognise the Shabd and have faith: There are many initiates in this world. Often they remain initiates if they do not acknowledge Naam. Not until this is done they become disciples. This is the process of man-making.
If a disciple has acknowledged Naam but did not meditate enough during his physical life because the world drew upon him, he later meditates on the Inner Planes, supervised by the Satguru, in order to go Home finally – he 'is kept in after school'.
Kirpal Singh wrote the following:
It is just for the sake of experiment that we have in the first instance to accept the words of a Master. But when we find the Truth of what He says, by actual experimentation, then the hypothesis is turned into conviction.

XV. Master and His Work,
by Kirpal Singh, 1894–1974
Jesus Christ said as follows:
Listen! Behold, the farmer went out to sow, and while he was doing it, some was dropped by the wayside, and the birds came and took it for food. And some went on the stones, where it had not much earth; and it came up straight away, because the earth was not deep: And when the sun was high, it was burned; and because it had no root, it became dry and dead. And some went among the thorns, and the thorns came up, and it had no room for growth and gave no fruit. And some, falling on good earth, gave fruit, coming up and increasing, and giving thirty, sixty, and a hundred times as much. And he said to them, Whoever has ears, let him give ear. […]
The seed is the word. And these are they by the wayside, where the word is planted; and when they have given ear, the Evil One comes straight away and takes away the word which has been planted in them. And in the same way, these are they who are planted on the stones, who, when the word has come to their ears, straight away take it with joy; and they have no root in themselves, but go on for a time; then, when trouble comes or pain, because of the word, they quickly become full of doubts. And others are those planted among the thorns; these are they who have given ear to the word, and the cares of this life, and the deceits of wealth, and the desire for other things coming in, put a stop to the growth of the word, and it gives no fruit. And these are they who were planted on the good earth; such as give ear to the word, and take it into their hearts, and give fruit, thirty and sixty and a hundred times as much.
St Mark 4:3-9, 14-20
Baba Jaimal Singh wrote in a letter to His disciple Sawan Singh:
Please do your Bhajan and Simran every day. Listen to the Shabd Dhun every day, whenever you are free. It is a fact, my son, that except for the Shabd Dhun nothing is our own. Believe firmly: 'I am nothing; my Satguru is everything. I am a servant of the Satguru.' When you sit in meditation, first put your attention in the Satguru’s form, then start Simran, and with intense Love and devotion, slowly, gently, direct your Inner Hearing and Seeing Faculties, Surat and Nirat, and the higher mind – nij man – towards the Sound and fix them in It. Next, listen to the Sound of the Dhun inside and nurture Love for It. Your attention may remain focused for no more than a minute or two, or five or ten, or it may barely hear the Sound, but even then the news of your effort will reach right into Sach Khand, that you are offering a prayer. I am very happy and pleased with you, my son. Grace and Mercy are always descending upon you. Never are you to keep a longing for the world within you, my son; keep the Holy Feet of the Satguru in your mind all the time. One day with that Love you will reach Sach Khand.
