When doing Simran – repetition – the Sound may begin to be heard along with it; or the Simran may be heard as being repeated in the Sound Current – to men who are of pure thoughts. 

At times true-hearted people, who are non-initiates, do hear the Sound, but such a Sound does not withdraw the soul current usually. If It does, the man is in great confusion and dreads what is going to happen.

The power of Inner Sight – Nirat – and that of Inner Audition – hearing the Sound Current – both are helping factors. The Sound Current – Shabda – attracts us upwards, whereas the Inner Sight – Nirat – clears our way up.
