      Returning To the Original Abode Of All Souls

      This world is perishable and so also is all that pertains to it. A
      wise man is he, who, having closely examined the nature of existence
      here, has realized that it is all transitory and illusory, and
      consecrated his human form by devoting himself to Bhajan and Simran
      (listening to inner sounds and repetition of the Holy Name of the
      Supreme Being) and who, taking the fullest advantage of the various
      faculties which the Supreme Father has graciously endowed him with,
      has translated the invaluable jewel within him, which is Surat
      (spirit) or the essence of his being, to its original abode.

      Section 1. The soul or spirit is known as Surat or Ruh. It has
      descended from the highest region, that is, the regions of Sat Nam
      and Radhasoami and has taken location in this body. It has got
      enmeshed here in the mind, the three Gunas (attributes), five
      Tattwas (original conditions of matter), ten Indriyas (senses and
      organs) etc. and so tight are the bondages of the body and things
      connected therewith that it has become difficult for it to extricate
      itself. Freedom from these bondages is called Moksh (liberation).
      Inner bondages are the mind, indriyas, tattwas, etc., and the
      external bondages comprise property, family and kinsfolk. The soul,
      that is, spirit is so much entangled in these two kinds of bondages
      that it has even lost consciousness of its original abode. So remote
      is the destination that it is now difficult for it to return to its
      original abode without the Mehar (grace) of a perfect guide. Now,
      all that a man has got to do is to take his Surat (spirit) back to
      its reservoir and place of origin, that is, Sat Nam and Radhasoami.
      Until this is attained, there can be no escape from joys and sorrows
      and pleasures and pains of this world.

      The Region of Pure Spirit and Consciousness

      11. The first and topmost region named "Radhasoami", Anami
      (Nameless) and Akah (Indescribable), which in fact cannot be termed
      a region, is the highest and the loftiest of all. This is the
      beginning and the end of everything and circumscribes all. The Love,
      Mercy and Energy of this region vibrate at every place, in Ansh Roop
      (part of the whole).

      Here it was that Mauj [God's Will or Energy] came into play in the
      beginning and came down as Shabd (Word [Sound]). This is the abode
      of Paramsants. With the exception of rare Sants, no one has had
      access to it. And one who has reached there is a Paramsant.

      12. Below Radhasoami Pad, leaving two stages in between [Alakh,
      Agam], is the region of Satnam or Sat Lok. It is highly refulgent,
      pure and free from any alloy and is absolutely spiritual [the region
      of pure spirit and consciousness]. It is the beginning and the end
      of the entire creation below it. Here occurred the manifestation of
      Sat Shabd, which is also known as Maha Nad, Sar Shabd, Sat Purush
      and Adi Purush. Two currents descended from here and pervaded all
      the nether regions. In Sant Mat, Sat Purush is called the true lord
      and creator. He is Ajar (undecaying), Amar (undying), Avinashi
      (indestructible) and ever constant. Sants are incarnations or
      embodiments of Sat Purush. This is the region of Dayal Purush
      (Merciful Being). There is eternal grace, mercy and bliss here. In
      this region, countless Hansas (celestial beings, loving souls) or
      devotees live in various Dweeps (islands) and enjoy the bliss of
      Darshan [Vision] of Sat Purush and subsist on Amrit (nectar). There
      is no trace of death, karma, anger, punishment, virtue, vice,
      suffering and retribution.

      For this reason, Sat Purush is called merciful. True and perfect
      Faqirs [Muslim Saints] have referred to this region as Hoot. On
      descent from Radhasoami Pad, Surat (spirit) took location here and
      then again went downwards. He alone who has pinned his faith in
      Radhasoami, has unflinching reliance in His Feet and after
      traversing through all the regions reaches Sat Lok, can also have
      access into Radhasoami Pad. There is no other way. It is for this
      reason that Sants prescribe the worship of Sat Purush Radhasoami who
      is their Isht (goal) and Master. One who reaches there is called
      Sant and Sat Guru. No one else has a right to be designated as Sant
      and Sat Guru.
