      From the book, Nij Updesh Radhasoami, by Huzur Maharaj

      Question: Who am I and what is my real swarup (form)? Here I undergo
      pain and pleasure. Is there any place where pure, everlasting and
      perfect happiness and bliss are available, without the least trace
      of pain and anguish, and where I too may become free from death?

      Huzur Maharaj: You are an ansha (emanation, ray, drop, particle) of
      the Supreme Creator Sat Purush Radhasoami. Your real form is that of
      Surat (spirit, soul) or Shabd (sound). You undergo pain and pleasure
      here owing to your association with Kal (mind) and Maya (matter). If
      you repair to Sat Lok [True Sphere, first spiritual realm] and
      Radhasoami Dham, you will become immortal. There you will get pure,
      everlasting and perfect happiness and bliss, free from pain and
      anguish.

      Question: By what path and practice can one reach there?

      Huzur Maharaj: The path can be traversed by the practice of Surat
      Shabd Yoga [the union of the soul with the Divine Light and Sound
      Current], which consists in attentively listening to the Shabd
      (sound) within oneself and catching hold of its current or
      resonance, present in the innermost recesses of every being and
      object. This path goes through the Third Eye Center, and there are
      several stages on the way.

      Question: From whom can the secrets of the path and the method of
      listening to Shabd (inner sound) be learnt? What are the rules and
      regulations to be followed and the abstinences and restrictions to
      be observed for treading the path?

      Huzur Maharaj: The secrets and the method can be learnt from the
      Sant Satguru who has Himself access to the Original Abode or from
      Sadhguru who has already covered some distance and is nearing the
      destination. The practice of Surat Shabd Yoga can easily be
      performed by bringing faith and belief in the teachings of, and
      engendering love in, Sat Purush Radhasoami and the Sant Satguru, and
      by adopting their saran [taking refuge in them].

      Surat is chaitanya (life, energy, vitality, spirituality), and this
      alone is the source of happiness, bliss and knowledge, and the
      embodiment of the Shabd (sound). In this world, it is concealed
      under innumerable covers or layers of mind and matter. To go on
      reducing the entanglements in these covers day by day, and
      discarding the tendencies induced by them, and ultimately securing
      complete detachment from them by love and devotion, and the
      performance of the spiritual practices, are the rules of conduct to
      be observed and followed. To become one day pure Chaitanya Swarup
      (pure spirit, absolutely free from mind and matter) is the aim or
      the result of the practice of Surat Shabd Yoga. To gain admittance
      to the Nij Dhanm (Real Abode), i.e., to Sat Lok and Radhasoami Dham,
      from where Surat [spirit entity, soul] had originally descended is
      true and complete salvation.
