      "Grant Merciful Radhasoami Thy Grace and Protection"}

      0 Surat [soul]! You have had enough sleep.
      Now get up and proceed on. Why do you
      waste your capital here.

      Come under the protection of Satguru.
      Hold fast to Nam and get rid of all evils.

      Kal strikes at you every moment.
      Associate yourself with Shabd, and
      throw away the load of karmas.

      Why do you not wash off the impurities of
      your mind now? Why do you not merge
      your Surat in Shabd?

      Behold the marvelous Jyoti (flame) within
      yourself. Radhasoami has opened the
      spring of Bhakti.

      -- Swami Ji Maharaj (Sant Radhasoami Sahab),
      Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry,
      Volume One, Agra, India

      Commentary

      The attention-faculty of the soul (Surat-Nirat) usually remains
      dormant in most people, what some call "The Blind Eye". Mystics
      portray the typical materialistic society as being a place of
      sleeping souls unaware of their true identity as soul, and often are
      even mislead by religious voices that speak about a million topics,
      but unfortunately, how to see and hear spiritually is usually not
      one of them. Sant Tulsi Sahab says, "Through the ritualism of the
      pundit, the whole world has been deluded. 'Wake up, wake up!' has
      been said for ages......For ages and ages, aeons and aeons, the soul
      has slept; who but the Saints can wake it." And Kabir says, "For
      millions of years you have slept, this morning, will you not wake?"

      Coming under the saran or protection of the Satguru means being
      summoned to awakening again, and one then learns the Methods of
      Sadhana or spiritual practice that make it possible for the soul to
      see and hear. One's ability to see and hear is restored. This is the
      true "healing" of those who are blind and can not hear, and the
      true "resurrection from the dead" that the Master bestows upon their
      disciple-students or chelas.

      "The capitol of life is slipping by quickly", says Swami Ji. "Night
      and day, the mouse of time gnaws away at the rope of life." (passage
      from the Adi Granth) Masters present the view that incarnating as
      sentient life provides us with the golden opportunity which should
      not be neglected, an opportunity for enlightenment and liberation
      (jivan mukti) from the Wheel of Samsara.

      "Kal", usually personified as the lord of death and illusion, is a
      metaphor for the false god of the universal mind or ego and all it's
      limited beliefs that are constantly flooding our consciousness,
      striking at us every moment, attempting to confine us to the
      labyrinth of the lower regions, diverting our attention away from
      the soul or self and it's natural habitat: the Spiritual Domain
      (Sach Khand, Radhasoami Dham).

      The mystic terms "Surat" and "Nirat" refer to the soul's
      consciousness: the attention, the ability of the soul to concentrate
      within, hear spiritually (Surat), see within (Nirat) and experience
      the bliss of higher regions.

      If the Master's Voice awakens us, and we take his or her advice, we
      will redirect our attention each day during meditation (Surat Shabda
      Yoga Practice), associate with and merge into the Shabd, the
      Positive Power of God, also known as: The Song of the Creator,
      Logos, Tao, Naam, Sound Current, Audible Life Stream, Holy Stream of
      Life, Sound, and Light, Saut-e Sarmad, Music of the Spheres, Sound
      of the Cosmic Christ, Anhad Shabad, and is known by countless other
      Names in the Gnostic or Mystic traditions within the world
      religions. The Shabad Naam, the Holy Stream of Sound and Light
      emanates from Sach Khand, the Spiritual Domain. It is the Positive
      Power of God coming from Above to take souls back Home again. It is
      a Force busting into the world of time and space, coming from the
      Timeless Realm, above Law, above Karma and Duality. It is the Path
      of Escape from these lower forces that otherwise keep the soul
      tethered to realms of mind, matter, and illusion. It is Divine Grace
      that lets souls go free. Thus, Masters advise us to: "wash off the
      impurities of the mind and throw away the load of karmas......Why
      not merge your soul in the Current of Divine Light and Sound."
      Swami Ji said, "Behold the marvelous Flame or Light within yourself.
      Radhasoami has opened the spring of Bhakti". The Lord of Your Soul
      has opened the spring of Love and Devotion that will transport you
      to the Ocean of Love.

      "In the beginning was the Tao, the Tao was with God, the Tao is
      God." Saint Valentinus says in his "Gospel of Truth (Sat, Haq)"
      found in Egypt that: "There is a Perfect Power that joins souls with
      the Supreme Father." This God-Power from Above in the Sant or
      Radhasoami tradition of the East is called "the Shabd" or "Sound
      Current." Even as the snake is captivated by the music of the
      recorder played by the snake-charmer, so the serpent-mind is only
      truly made calm and tamed by the Sound of the Divine Musician. Swami
      Ji Maharaj (Sant Radhasoami Sahab) says, "When one begins to hear
      the Shabad, one's mind is brought under control. By no other means
      will it come round." (Shabd 9, Bachan 8, Saar Bachan Radhaswami
      Nazam yaani Chhand Band, Volume One) Those with eyes to see and ears
      to hear will understand, and this is all due to the Grace of
      Radhasoami.

      Radhasoami,
