“Without the Saints... we are tossed about endlessly. Without the merciful, compassionate Master, aeon after aeon we rove.” (Param Sant Tulsi Sahib)

“I was being crushed

like seeds in an oil-press –

but the True Guru set me free.

Love, old as all my births,

flickered once again.”

-- Kabir

“This mysterious path is described in the holy books, but it cannot be found simply by the study of sacred texts. It is found by the grace and guidance of an accomplished teacher.” (Swami Santsevi Ji)

“The one who has purity of character, who practices diligently the Yoga of Sound, and who can explain clearly Sant Mat (the complete Path of the Masters with nothing missing), can be accepted and trusted as Satguru/Teacher.” (Maharshi Mehi)

"The RADHASWAMI Faith leaves the lower plane centres all alone and advises ascension into the regions above where there is ‘the confluence of humanity and Divinity’ within the human body."* [* Third Eye Center and Sahas-dal-kanwal (Thousand-petalled Lotus)]

"The plane of spirit is beyond the plane of mentality and physicality. It is there that the spirit rules supreme."

"Spirit pervades all. In the spiritual realm it is paramount. That is the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is neither in the realm of mind nor of matter. It is there where mind and matter do not go. It is beyond their reach."

"Spirit, Mind and matter have their respective valuation in their respective spheres, but the most supreme of all is the spirit."

-- Shiv Brat Lal: http://www.manavtamandir.com/books/english/Light-on-the-Anad-Yog.pdf

"Blessed is the eye which is permeated with love. Without love it is like a pebble or stone. Like a gardener without a garden, the eye remains empty without love. What is the state of a human being without love? He is like one who is denied all delicacies, and whose mouth is filled only with dust. Without love one does not find the flow of the Sound Current." (Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar)

"The ocean of existence is unfathomably vast and without any port of safety. It cannot be crossed -- If you meet the Satguru, the boatman, then only will you get across and reach your Abode. Listen, O friend! Great is the status of Sants. In that region of Sants there is neither sound nor any form. It is beyond Sunn [the void] and Maha-sunn [the great void]. Says Tulsi, he knows the True Name of the Abode of the August, Nameless and Infinite Being."

-- Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras, Book of Shabdavali

Kirpal Singh: "Be regular and lovingly devoted to your holy meditations, as that is the central pivot around which the whole sacred teaching revolves and therein an all around development of the soul is granted."

The Book of Anurag Sagar (Ocean of Love) is a Volume of the Kabir Sagar (Ocean of Kabir), one of several scriptures used by the Sant Dharam Das line of Masters.

“‘Hazur [Baba Sawan Singh] one day told Seth Vasdev, whose car is always at Hazur’s disposal, that he should read Kabir Sahib’s Anurag Sagar (The Ocean of Intense Love). Hazur said that without studying it, one cannot fully understand the difference between Kal (the negative power) and Dayal Mat (the Path of the true and Merciful God), nor can one fully grasp the teachings of Sant Mat.’” (Rai Sahib Munshi Ram, “With the Three Masters”, Vol. 2, p.187)

Kabir said: “Bowing my Head to Him I started and, Dharam Das, now I have come to you... You are my very dear soul about whom I worried a lot. With the orders of Sat Purush [Supreme Being] I came to you, and made you remember the previous things. I gave you darshan [vision] only because of that. O Dharam Das! this time you recognized me. I will tell you Sat Purush’s Words: 'Recognize the Shabda and have faith.’”

"Dharam Das fell at the Feet, and from his eyes the tears came. He grew very excited and said, 'O Lord, You have finished the deception of my soul.' Even after having all this explained to him he could not calm down. He was like a mother who, after being separated from her child, is reunited."

Anurag Sagar: “Oh Dharam Dass! If a person gives up all doubts, * Become a Friend and Supporter of Spiritual Awakening Radio.

There is a Sound Current coming from the Final Abode and calling you to come. So if you listen to that Call, then you can ascend like saints.”

Valentine’s Day Verses of Mystical Love and Romance from Rumi, Darshan Singh, Guru Amar Das, Baba Farid, and Sultan Bahu

Valentine’s Day provides an opportunity to share these powerful, loving verses of the heart. The words of mystics are directed towards God as the Beloved lover of their soul, yet their words are so loving, blissful, and ecstatic that they are, at the same time, quite romantic and appropriate for Valentine’s Day between soul-mates! I believe the soul-to-soul-mate relationship of romance is a kind of ‘reflection’ of the soul’s relationship with God (soul-to-Oversoul), the ultimate pure love from the Ocean of Love.

“True lovers are those
who love with all their hearts.” (Baba Farid)

Love is the Voice of Two Hearts Beating Together

Below is from, Love’s Last Madness — Poems On A Spiritual Path, By Sant Darshan Singh, Published by Hohm Press (an English translation from the Urdu language, from the book, Mataa-e Noor [Treasury of Light], edited by Barry Lerner and Harbans Singh Bedi).

“Love lends sparkle to this happy, sad world;
Love is the voice of two hearts beating together.

If not the enchanting look of the true believer’s eyes,
What changes rational life into mad existence?

My lonesome mornings yearn for the sound of your footfall,
My anguished nights strain to hear your voice.

Love is not talked of in the marketplace:
Love is unknowable mystery, end to end.

My impatient eyes dare not turn audacious
But for the beckoning of her seductive look.

Love’s capital lasts forever — love is a thing divine;
It makes lovers soar inconceivably high.

Silence would conceal your heart’s secret, Darshan,
Were it not for the telltale tears of your restless eyes.” (Darshan Singh, from the book, Love’s Last Madness – Poems On A Spiritual Path)

“They are not said to be husband and wife, who merely sit together.
They alone are called husband and wife, who have One Light in two bodies.” (Guru Amar Das)

“Lovers remain completely intoxicated in the ecstasy of their love for the Beloved.
They offer their souls to the Beloved while still living, and thus immortalize themselves
in this life and in the hereafter.” (Hazrat Sultan Bahu)

“There is no salvation for the soul
But to fall in love.
It has to creep and crawl
Among the Lovers first.

Only Lovers can escape
From these two worlds.
This was written in creation.

Only from the Heart
Can you reach the sky.
The rose of Glory
Can only be raised in the Heart.” (RUMI)

“Lovers would give up both worlds
and sacrifice hundreds of years of life
for just one moment together,
They jump though thousands of hoops
after the smell of one breath,
and would sacrifice thousands of lives
to satisfy a single heart.

"Lovers are such strange people.
They are not like everybody else.
They don’t carry their souls in their bodies.
Instead, their souls carry them.
People run to the river of the waters of Life
in hopes of becoming immortal,
yet the waters of Life
are always running to the lovers.”

– Rumi, The Rubais of Rumi – Insane with Love",
Translations and Commentary by Nevit O. Ergin
and Will Johnson, Inner Traditions

You and I – Rumi

“How happy we are when seated in a palace,
you and I,
With dual forms and bodies but with one soul,
you and I.

Birds’ voices and the grove’s moody colours offer
Immortality when we enter the garden,
you and I.

Above, stars will emerge and gaze upon us;
We’ll reveal to them the moon’s splendour,
you and I.

Individuals no more, you and I shall mingle in ecstasy
Full of joy, and beyond the reach of stupid talk.

All the hearts of Heaven’s high-plumaged birds will be rotten with envy,
In the place where our laugh sounds similar,
you and I.

The greatest wonder is this: that we sit here in the same spot,
In Iraq and Khorasan at this moment,
you and I.”

– Rumi, “Where Two Oceans Meet – A Selection of Odes from the Divan of Shems of Tabriz, By Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi”, James G. Cowan, Elements Books
