Three Essentials for the Progress of Soul to the Lord explained
Three Essentials for the Progress of Soul to the Lord Explained: There are three essentials for the progress of the soul to unite with the Lord. These may be summed up as:
- Satguru or the True Master.
- Sat Sangat or the congregation of the votaries presided over by the Master.
- Sat Naam or the True Naam.
Masters form a Divine Brotherhood in God. They are the gems of humanity who have completed their evolution and risen into God-consciousness. They have achieved complete oneness with the Divine Being and are overflowing with the Holy Word or Divine Life in its fullness.
They reincarnate in human form in order to guide the destinies of the child humanity to the goal of life. They form, as it were, the connecting link between man and God. They belong to the order of the Great Ones who are charged with the duty of watching the human race. They take true seekers after God under their care, to hasten their realisation of at-one-ment with the One Being.
