Dear Delhi Satsang (My Life)

Silver Spring, 17 June 1955

In continuation of my previous letter I may state that a Satsang was held in an open grassy ground around the Washington Monument. It started with a shower of rain, which stopped. I told the audience that whenever anything was started in the name of my Master Baba Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj, He came down with a shower always. The talk was given for full one hour on the subject ‘What are the prerequisites to see God.’ Then again rain came on; which drenched one and all sitting and there were still some who continued hearing the talk until I stopped talking. Hazur’s Grace is working in all fullness. In my evening talk today at Friends’ Meeting Hall, I dealt ‘whether we can see God,’ and they were wonderstruck.

Talks are given regularly every evening from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. First they used to be given here in the house, but now as the gathering is getting stronger every day, this house refuses to hold all of them. So, a huge hall has been taken over and from yesterday Satsangs are held there.

Whoever has the good fortune to come in close contact with me, he just cannot resist me. I suppose the Light of God cannot be screened off and for the True Seekers it is the beginning and the end of their search when they come to me. I have never seen such a remarkable change in such a short period of time in the people here, for in the beginning some had come with their wits sharpened to a razor’s edge with suspicion, and with thoughts of attaching me with the most well thought of difficult questions. They really bombarded me with questions which even a most learned man would not possibly attempt to reply, but it did not take long for me with Master’s Grace to shock them into awakedness with an effortless way of giving answers and making them so easily understandable, and in such a simple way, too, that this really stunned them – and within these thirteen days those very people who had come to criticise now sit at the feet like thirsty people quenching their thirsts with that which poured from the lips of the Master within. They all look up with such Love and devotion; this is the result of being near the all powerful Truth, for the sittings are given every morning to all, they might be initiated or not. Jesus Christ has come to many new comes with the Radiant Form of the Master; so He, too, is helping to bring the people near the Master. New people are being drawn from day to day and Hazur Baba Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj is also appearing to some, who have not even seen His picture and they recognise Him from the picture when shown.

I was invited by WTOP television people, so I was on TV for twenty minutes on the 13th (Monday morning) and gave a talk on the essentials and non-essentials of religions. The essentials were all one – Love of God and Love of humanity –, and now they want to make a film of me and earnestly want me to come to the TV again. I hope I will agree, for this is the only means of making the people of America see and know the message of the Great Master Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj as also those who are ready may know that there is, after all, some body still to put them on the Way back to God, as presented by Masters in the past, so no need for despair for them.

One of my talks was broadcast over the Radio on the subject. There is One Way back to God for all humanity alike which stars when you transcend the body and another is being broadcasted this evening.

So many pictures are being taken of me that I think in a few days’ time I will be the most photographed man, and the press – you just cannot imagine what a busy time I am having. When I see you I will show you some of the newspaper cuttings, which I have asked Khanna to keep.

Some of them wonder if Master is the reincarnation of Christ. Some have accepted Him as Christ, some take Him to be even greater than Christ. I simply tell them that I am a man just as you are – and simply developed in the Spiritual Way with the Grace of my Master. What I have learnt at His Holy Feet I am giving out to you.

The head of Mehe Baba’s Movement came to me for an interview today and I had a long talk with her – she has invited me to a meeting of Mehe Baba’s followers, so I have promised to do so.

I have been invited by the Central Y.M.C.A. to speak on the subject ‘Spiritual Discipline in an Atomic Age’ on the 19th June, 1955 where men from various countries are attending. On the same day I have to give a talk at the Mt. Vernom Methodist Church at their service at 10 a.m. In the same evening Satsang will also be held at Friends’ Meeting Place, Quaker’s Church, where many people are expected to attend. TV photographer will come and will shoot 16 mm film to show on TV next Saturday the 25th June and will also introduce the Master and His Party.

I am very busy during the coming week, as I have to give a ‘series’ of talks on successive five days in addition to daily meditation hours and interviews by others. I am here in Washington, D.C. up to the 30th June, 1955 and have a programme to proceed to Louisville on the 1st July 1955. Thereafter will proceed to Chicago and thence to California. This will cover more than 4000 miles of travel – major part of which I intend to do by air. People are inviting me from many places in USA as also from Canada. I will do my best to meet with their wishes with the Grace of Hazur Maharaj Ji. Let His Name be glorified.

Please convey my fondest Love and best wishes to each one of you in the Ashram and all those who attended the Satsang.

Yours affectionately
Kirpal Singh
