God will help you to arrive at the place where you will get in contact with the God-into-expression Power.
All were permitted to see You in the form of their Guru of the respective time strolling on earth, all this I never had in this life.
Entering this world through Thy hands, born as Thy disciple, carried by Thee.
Born as a sinner, I spend the time in the pang of yearning for Thee in Kal Desh. Oh Kirpal! Rescue all!
In hardship and distress appears Gobind, yet is unable to be of help for me. Agam1 has no ointment for my sorrow.
My Ishit Guru2 Thou were. What a joy to see this! Already once we have been together and yet this time we’ll become One!
In order to abate the agony, I distribute it to all Thy children.
The pangs for Thee Kirpal should wane, oh what a wonder – the case is converse.
Thy Word lights up every part in us and Thy voice is the music in our brow.
Each one may hear It, destined by Thee. May all become Thy ambassadors!
[…] When the moral depraves, the Divine Grace increases to more opulence to the general benefit of the masses. To grant an Inner first-hand experience perhaps is the only touch-stone to discriminate the wheat from the chaff, the perfect from the imperfect masters of which the world is brimfull.
[…] Once you have been given initiation go to the Master, my talks are there, my tapes are there, go to them.
[…] After my physical departure I will not stand behind any organisation which will be founded in my name; if, however, this should happen, it will become their own destiny.
After the initiation by a Competent Master or His authorised representative, the disciple can be sure that he is on his Way back to his True Home – Sach Khand.
God alone can give the contact with Light and Sound. Nobody else is in a position to do so.
Thus, what I have seen so far and understood from the scriptures is, that Shabd or the Holy Word is the only Guru. Now wayfarers, return Home.
In four yugas I have come now to tell you the Truth but you still have doubts in your hearts.
Since myraids of years we are connected on our journey as relatives and friends such as father and grandfather, mother and grandmother, brother and uncle or sister and aunt, to the point of animals, plants and minerals.We are not seperated from one another, this is the Unity of all things.
We are Light, from the same essence as that of God; God is Light and Love. We should love everyone and we should not have any enemy, because we are all children of God. The essence is always the same, all religions say the same. Rituals have only one purpose: to arouse the desire in us to bear testimony to the Truth by ourselves.
It is not necessary to change one’s religion, stay where you are, but become real followers of your torch bearers such as: Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Kabir and Nanak, Jesus Christ, Mohammed etc., by being able to bear witness of the same things as these elevated Souls of Their time.
In addition, it is neither necessary nor appropriate, to criticise or even to condemn the represantatives of the various religions and institutions, who interpret the teachings of the respective torch beares according to their own comprehension, because:
Do not judge and criticise and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticised and condemned yourselves.
Each one can only speak from his own level. Many groups refer to Kirpal Singh, however, they only impart theory and bind the people. In particular we ask all of them, who are members of such a group, to put the following question to themselves: Check out by yourself, in piece and quiet of your heart – have you received the promised Naam or not? Naam has no bearing on outer sounds, such as ringing of a bell or a deep sound from a brazen bowl or any such like thing, nor does it have any bearing on outer light, such as candle light or spotlight.
How can we be sure that we have received the gift of Naam?
Then, when we can hear It deliberately, day and night.
Well, not everyone stands on the same stage of development and not everyone has the same level of receptivity to the Almighty, however, there is one criterion how to be saved:
Do not believe in the Words of a Master until you can testimony it by yourself.
This testimony must be possible at the time of initiation!
Kirpal Singh explains it that way:
First of all, we should know what initiation means. Initiation is no ceremony, no rite, no ritual, no offering. It is just like a school, in which a lesson is given; and for that lesson, first the Inner Theory is explained, and then an Inner Experience is given. We are all children of God. God is Light, and we are also Light, being of the same essence as that of God. But our Light is enveloped by different coverings – physical, astral, causal and super causal. It is just like a lamp that has two, three or four coverings over it; it appears as if there is no light there. But when you shake off one covering, you have some light; when you shake off another one, more light; and, as you shake off all the coverings, you see it is all-light. Similarly, we are Light, children of Light, but we are enveloped by so many coverings.
Initiation means to rise up our soul and shake off all the coverings: first, the one of the physical body, which is the Iron Curtain, I would say: to rise the soul above body consciousness – physical consciousness – and open the Inner Eye to have an experience of Light, and also to open the Inner Ear to hear the Voice of God, or the Music of the Spheres.
This is what is actually meant by the word initiation: to be initiated into the beyond.
Initiation – A talk given by Kirpal Singh,
during His second world tour,
Miami, 1 January, 1964
A valid initiation is always connected to a confirmable first-hand experience of Truth. This experience may be, according to the personal background, more or less intensive, but it must be given. Furthermore, this experience can not only be repeated deliberately by regular practice on compliance with the commandments given by Kirpal Singh but it can also be developed further.
Otherwise, we are, unfortunately, led astray. It does not need months or years in order to attain results. One can attain results rapidly in days and weeks. That way Kirpal said it in ‘Man, know thyself’, and as a matter of course, the same is still valid today.
I wish you, dear reader, together with your dear ones a bon voyage.
