      From the Spiritual Discourses of the Radhasoami Faith

      The mind and spirit get strength for rising towards higher regions by
      listening to Shabd (Heavenly Sound) internally. But this practice of
      Shabd Abhyas (meditation practice) cannot be correctly and properly
      performed without receiving initiation in the secrets of the Path and
      of the Shabds of the various intervening stages [key Sounds of the
      various heavenly regions] and without the help of the Sant Sat Guru.

      The Surat (spirit), having descended from the Realm of the Supreme
      Being Radhasoami to lower regions, has got engrossed in the body and
      the objects of Maya, and has been enveloped in the covers of Malin
      (impure) Maya. Hence so long as it does not relinquish this region
      and ascend upwards to the purely spiritual region, evil tendencies
      cannot be eradicated, and purification cannot be attained.

      It will not be fit to enter into the Abode of the Supreme Being, its
      true Parent. If it remains confined to lower regions. viz., the
      regions of Maya, it will again and again and again assume physical
      bodies and undergo consequent pains and pleasures. It will not be
      free from the cycle of births and deaths.

      It therefore behooves all to work in this very life for proceeding
      towards the Real Home. The practice for this is the Surat Shabd
      Abhyas [the attention-faculty of the soul merging in the Divine Sound
      and Light], excepting which there is no other method of translating
      and elevating the spirit entity.

      It is, therefore, proper for all to find out about the Sant Sat Guru
      (who would certainly be conversant with the secrets of Shabd) and to
      receive from Him initiation in the secrets of the Path and the Method
      of elevating the mind and spirit along the Current of Shabd. If the
      perfect Guru be not met with, they should receive initiation from His
      loving and devoted disciples. They should then begin performing
      Abhyas in seclusion with love and faith. This will result in the
      gradual elevation of mind and spirit, and bliss and joy in Abhyas. If
      keenness, fervor and love go on increasing, the Sant Sat Guru will,
      one day, grant His Darshan [Vision] and enrich the devotee with His
      Grace and Mercy, and by and by take him to the Highest Home and
      accomplish his task.
