      Teachings of the Radhasoami Faith, Part One

      Concept of Salvation or Jiva Mukti

      According to Swami Ji, surat (the soul) can return to its original
      abode after it has extricated itself from worldly bonds. This home-
      coming, he holds, is true salvation. The surat would then be freed
      of the pangs of worldly pleasures and pains and the cycle of
      transmigration and reincarnation. It would, therefore, easily cross
      the jurisdiction of Kal and enjoy eternal bliss and peace. Salvation
      is the ultimate goal of surat and it can advance towards it only
      through its affinity with and attraction for shabd. Shabd alone can
      guide the surat on its way back to higher regions of creation and
      finally in reaching its eternal abode.

      Concept of Shabd

      According to Soamiji, shabd (the eternal Sound Current, "The Word")
      is the first manifestation of the Supreme Being. It is the supreme
      energy and the prime source of all creation. The resonance of the
      Sound Current is known as nam (holy name) which resounds in the
      inner self of all jivas (souls).

      Shabd and surat both have the same attributes; rather surat has an
      inherent attraction for shabd. Soamiji holds that by following the
      prescribed inner practice (Surat Shabd Yoga) Surat can get attached
      to Shabd and after passing through several higher regions, it can
      one day reach its final abode. Thc Sant Satguru of the time alone
      possesses the key to the secret of the Shabd.
