      The Radhasoami Faith not built on scriptures of any religion --
      The efficacy of Surat-Shabd-Yoga

      The Radhasoami Faith is not built on the basis of scriptures
      appertaining to Hindu or any other religion, but on the precepts or
      instructions of the Supreme Being Himself, who appeared on this earth
      in human form and graciously performed the functions of a Sant
      Satguru for the benefit of degraded humanity. The original books of
      all inspired religions, however, bear sufficient testimony to the
      superiority and efficacy of the Surat-Shabd-Yoga as the only means
      and the only highway to the highest heaven.

      The internal Sound Current is the means of raising spirit, difference
      of Dhunyatmak and Varnatmak names. The power of Sound Current or
      Shabd.

      The Sound heard internally is a Current which has originally emanated
      from the Supreme Being and is the means not only of concentrating the
      will but also of raising spirit entity to the Source from which it
      emanated.

      At the time of initiation, a novice receives instructions as regards
      the particulars of Shabd of each sub-division by means of which one
      has to raise one's spirit entity upwards. This is called
      Dhunyatmak name, while that uttered by tongue is called Varnatmak
      name.

      It must be clearly understood that by Shabd or 'Word' or internal
      voice is meant the spirit or life current which enlivens every part
      of the body and is the main principle or essence which supports life
      in and gives activity to every being or body in the whole creation or
      universe. Even in this world everything is done by means of word or
      sound, and all affairs are managed through its instrumentality, as
      one speaks or gives order and the other attends to it or carries it
      out into execution. The instantaneous effect of word or sound on
      human beings and even on animals is so apparent in everyday
      experience of our life that it needs no further explanation.

      The state of Spirit entity in the third degree – The change of
      its powers with the change of its spheres

      At present the spirit entity of a human being is residing in the
      third or material-spiritual region, and has, therefore, to do all the
      work here by means of the senses and the mind which are mediums
      between it and the material objects, and consequently, as a natural
      result, its power has become quite hampered. But as soon as it begins
      to ascend, the powers, which are now lying dormant, become active and
      the spirit entity acquires ultra-material or higher power.

      The method of taking back the Spirit entity to its original Source is
      to ride the Sound Current

      The method for taking back the spirit entity to its Supreme Source is
      first to concentrate at the focus of eyes the spirit entity and mind
      which are defused in our body and in a manner tied to external
      objects by desires and passions, and next to commence its journey
      homewards by attending to the internal Sound, or in other words, by
      riding the Life or Sound Current which has originally emanated from
      the Supreme Source.

      The Current which has been instrumental in having brought it down
      here must naturally be the True Path for its return to the original
      Source, and whoever finds this Current is on the path of
      emancipation. This Current which is the spirit and Life Current is
      called in the Radhasoami Faith, "Sound' or 'Word" or Holy Name.
