      Helping Factors on the Path, Part Four

      Ways to Obtain Divine Grace

      It is proper for a devotee to obtain the grace of Sant Sat Guru
      Radhasoami Dayal and this can be done by performing spiritual
      practices, attending Satsang and prayers.

      Studying the Bhajans and Banis of the Sants

      Perusal of scriptures is essential in every case for strengthening
      Saran (submission to His will) and securing internal help and mercy.

      The Company of Satsangis for Spiritual Guidance

      If necessary, it is also proper to speak to a senior Satsangi, who is
      available, about the state of one's mind and to obtain his help.

      The Company of the Sat Guru for Spiritual Guidance

      He, to whom the company of Sat Guru is available, need not speak
      about the state of his mind to anyone else. He should personally make
      his submission to Sat Guru Himself. He shall soon be benefited by His
      gracious and merciful words and kind glances.

      Strong Desire to Make Progress in This Life and Daily Meditation

      What has been stated above, refers to the case of those who have
      earnestly devoted themselves to Parmarth (spiritual regeneration) and
      who, adopting some how or the other the Saran of Radhasoami Dayal,
      perform the spiritual practices every day regularly, with great
      attention and care, and whose minds have been, more or less, affected
      by the sufferings in this world and the fear of Chaurasi (the subtle
      eighty-four currents whose ramifications have constituted a network
      to entrap the spirit in various grades and orders of life.)

      From the Admonitions of Soami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Poetry:

      You have now a golden opportunity.
      Protect yourself from heat and friction,
      and be cool and comforted.

      Perform Simran and Seva of Sat Guru.
      Turn away your mind from desires and passions.

      Control your mind and senses as much as possible.
      Drink from the cup of Guru (Shabd current which is full of amrit).

      You will gain equanimity and get to higher regions of happiness.
      You will be released from the shackles of the mind.

      Perform Bhajan. Give up laziness altogether
      and get out of the domain of Kal.

      With every breath, offer prayers to Guru.
      It is He alone who will extricate you from the physical body.

      There is no other remedy so effective as the repetition of RADHASOAMI
      Nam which you should do from morning till evening.

      Always associate with Sadhs in a spirit of love and devotion.
      Avoid the company of worldly people.

      Radhasoami enjoins upon you to attach yourself to True Name.
      Perform Simran of the name RADHASOAMI.
