      Studies in the Sar Bachan:
      Esoteric Instructions of Swami Ji Maharaj

      HIDAYATNAMA
      (ESOTERIC INSTRUCTIONS)

      REVELATION GIVEN OUT IN THE COURSE OF TEACHINGS
      IMPARTED ABOUT THE VALUE OF ASSOCIATION WITH,
      AND SERVICE OF, THE PERFECT GUIDE, AND ABOUT
      THE DIFFERENT GRADES OF ADEPTS, AND INSTRUCTIONS
      ABOUT THE PRACTICE OF SHABD, AND THE SECRETS OF
      SHABD MARG (YOGA), AND THE VARIOUS STAGES
      ASSOCIATED WITH IT.

      This discourse is meant for those who are desirous of finding the
      Supreme Being, and who are true seekers and want to know which
      religion is the highest and what path is the most sure and direct.
      They should minimize their worldly attachments. In other words,
      leaving the care for wealth, wife and children to fate, they should
      give paramount importance to the company of saintly persons. And out
      of saintly persons, the company of that Adept should be adopted who
      is a practitioner of Surat Shabd or of Drishti (sight), that is to
      say, who is conversant with the technique of the Yoga of Surat Shabd,
      has perfected the practice of withdrawing the spirit currents from
      the pupils of the two eyes, and of uniting them; and who performs the
      practice of raising the spirit, by hearing internally celestial
      sounds. In case, an Adept of this class is not available, they should
      search out one who performs the practice of 'striking the solar
      plexus with Name' (repeating the Holy Name in a particular manner at
      the heart centre), or one who performs the practice of 'breath
      control'. The company of such a person would also purify 'the heart,
      curb evil propensities and confer some inner joy. But the ascension
      of the spirit can be achieved through the practice of Surat Shabd
      Yoga alone. It behooves the seeker to develop love and devotion for
      such a personage...When, in His grace, He initiates you into the
      secrets and methods of the practice referred to above, your spirit
      will begin to catch hold of the celestial sounds. You should perform
      the practice daily, twice, four times or as many times as you find
      time.
