God-Power, Christ-Power, Master-Power


A life of continence and control over the outgoing senses is enjoined by all Masters as the qualification that enables one to follow Their teachings. Jesus, in the Sermon of the Mount, said:

Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.

St Matthew 5:8

All other Masters, or Those Who have realised Themselves, have said the same thing; for God is One and Truth is One. If there are any differences among us, these are all man-made and are due to our lack of personal experience of the Truth.

Christ and other Masters have grieved that although They have seen, that They can bear testimony to It, yet the people have not believed Them. Masters see and then not only say but are competent to give us an actual specific experience.

Purity of life is required. You will find that chastity is life and sexuality is death. This body is born of corruptible seed and we are born into the Beyond by the incorruptible seed. We should examine these scriptural references to find their Truth. The Man-body is the highest in all creation and blessed are we that we have the Man-body. The Highest Aim before us is to know God.

God resides in us; there is nothing that we need to introduce within from the outside.

The various scriptures extant contain a fine record of the experiences of the Masters; yet we need Someone Who has had this experience and is competent to give us the same: tasting the Bread and drinking the Water of Life – bringing Them into existence.

Guru Nanak said:

Do not be deluded because you have taken one form of religion or the other. You must follow the teachings to their original intention.

All religious teachings are based on the Spiritual Experiences of the Masters Who came from time to time, and the right import or understanding of these experiences can be had only from Those Who have had these same experiences.

We have due deference for all Masters Who came in the past, and great respect for all Scriptures for they are worth tons of gold and emeralds; but we do need Someone Who knows the Way and can open our Inner Eye to see the Light of God.

The lives of Christ and all Masters are examples of putting God first. The Kingdom of God is within you. You cannot have It by observation. You can have It only by learning to die while alive, for you enter the Kingdom of God only when you are reborn. In the East they say you have to be twice-born, but reborn or twice-born amounts to the same thing.

The first birth is in the physical body and the second is into the Beyond. The Masters were competent to give an experience of how to rise above body consciousness, and disclosed the mantra meaning to rise above the physical, astral, and causal bodies, to see the Son of Light – the Light of the Sun – already ablaze within you.

(The Master here refers to the Gayatri-Mantra, which is given by the priests of Hindu religion to the eight to ten years old children1. In Surat Shabd Yoga, the Path of the Saints, no Mantra is given.)

As I said before, purity is a stepping stone to Him, and, in addition, is Love of God. Misdirected love, called attachments, is keeping us in the body and is the cause of our coming again and again. We go where we are attached, for that is the nature of attachment.

True Love, called Charity, is already engrained in our souls and, when directed towards God, is truly Loving. God is Love, and our Soul is Love personified, and the Way back to God is also Love.

All Masters say:

Love God with all thy heart, with all thy strength, and love thy neighbour and all creation.

On the wings of Love we can fly to heaven, but with the chastity of life.

It is recorded of Christ that He was chaste-born, sinless born. Similarly, in the East, the Masters were the embodiment of chastity and pure lives.

Married life is no bar to Spirituality, if conducted according to the Scriptures. It means taking a companion in life who will be with you in this earthly sojourn through weal and woe; the husband and wife should help each other to know God and to fulfil the Highest Aim of man’s life. One duty may be that of begetting children, but, bear in mind, that is not 100% of our duties. The Scriptures say that husbands should love their wives as Christ loved the Church.

In the lives of all Masters, we find two great things:

They have contact with God and are the mouthpieces of God. They speak as inspired from God rather than from the level of the intellect, feelings, emotions, or by drawing inferences. They see and say and ask you to become.

They say:

Be still, physically and intellectually, and know that you are God.

We have great respect for all Masters, all Sons of men or Human Poles at Which that God-Power, Guru-Power, or Christ-Power worked, and continues to work, to guide the child-humanity. We are blessed.

I wish you Happy Christmas, but in the way that I have advocated to be the True Celebration of Christmas Day. Understand Who the Masters were, Their teachings of how to learn to die, how to be reborn, how to open the Inner Eye and see the Light of God.

Christ was the Light and the Way.

I have had the great pleasure to present to you for your consideration this Christmas Night, truths which I have come to know through experience and by study of comparative religion.

As I said previously,

remain in any religion you like.

Unless you sit at the feet of some Human Pole at which the God-Power has manifested Itself, the purpose of your joining various schools of thought has not been served, because you want to see God.

The Masters do not destroy any religion or introduce new ones. When They come, They come for the whole world. They consider all humans alike and want us to unravel this mystery of the Man-body. Great is man. He lives in this body in which God controls him; and within the microcosm of it, exists the macrocosm. We know so much about the outer subjects but, for want of practical people, we know little or nothing about ourselves, the great boon, the great blessing that we have in the form of the Man-body – he Golden Opportunity.

Blessed are you. Remain in whatever religion you are, there is no need to change it – but be true to it. And being true to your own religion is – to the best of my knowledge of the Scriptures – to sit at the feet of Someone Who knows the Way.

Explanation: 1) Originally, with this an experience of Light was given. The Mantra means, that one should rise above the physical, the astral and the causal body, in order to see the Son of Light – the Light of the Sun, which already radiates within you. So, to meet the Guru Dev and to see the Light of God.
