      Radhasoami Mat Prakash, Part Three

      The Special and Beloved Sons of the Supreme Being or Sants

      The Supreme Being has special and beloved sons called Sants and Param
      Sants, who are full of mercy and love and who descend periodically
      upon the earth to deliver spirits from the bondage of matter and to
      carry them to the presence of the Supreme Father.

      One should look for a Sant or Sadh to approach the Supreme Being

      Any person desirous of reaching the Supreme Being must search for a
      Sant Sat Guru (Incarnation of the Supreme Being) or a Sadh Guru (one
      who has reached the top of the second grand division) and invoke His
      help, and receive instructions from one of those Superior Guides, as
      to the manner of his devotion and procedure.

      Definition of Sant Sat Guru

      A Sant Sat Guru is one who has either descended directly from the
      highest division or reached that quarter by practice of Surat-Shabd-
      Yoga under the immediate direction of the former.

      Definition of Sadh Guru and Satsangi

      A Sadhguru is one who has descended from the top of the second grand
      division or reached it by the practice of Surat-Shabd-Yoga under the
      direction of the Sant Sat Guru and is proceeding towards the highest
      division. A Satsangi [disciple] is one who having full belief and
      confidence in Sant Sat Guru and His words is practicing Surat-Shabd-
      Yoga under His immediate direction and having traversed some distance
      is pushing on upwards.

      The Supreme Being is both personal and impersonal

      The name of the Supreme Being is Radhasoami. He is impersonal, but
      personal in the second and third divisions and when He manifests
      Himself through humanity as Sant Sat Guru. His attributes are mostly
      met with in the Sant Sat Guru, who might be called an Incarnation of
      Sat Purush Radhasoami, the True Supreme Being.

      Definition of true salvation

      The deliverance of spirit entity from bondage of body, senses and
      mind, and its gradual ascension and eventual entrance into the first
      or highest division by the practice of Surat-Shabd-Yoga is perfect
      salvation according to Radhasoami Faith. At present the Surat or
      Spirit entity which is a particle of the Supreme Being or a ray from
      the Supreme Sun or a drop from the Supreme Ocean of Spirit, having
      descended from the highest or first region has become encased in
      material coverings, and in a manner intermingled with matter and is
      in this, the third region, subject to the forces or carnal desires
      and passions resulting from such mixture.

      Spirit entity, subject to birth and rebirth in the second and third

      In its descent from the highest region the spirit entity has become
      enveloped in various coverings of matter or bodies, and so long as it
      remains in the second and third division where matter exists, it can
      not be freed from re-birth in the lower or higher regions. It is only
      in the first or highest division where there is no matter, that there
      is no re-birth.
