      Signs of a True Disciple and Signs of a True Master

      83. So long as a person does not perform karmas in accordance with
      the commandments of the Saints, his mind cannot become cleansed or
      uncontaminated. And so long as he does not contemplate on Satguru
      and shabd, his attention (chitt) shall not become unflinching
      (nishchal). When he has attained to these two grades (i.e.
      purification of mind and perfect concentration on Satguru and shabd)
      then alone he will become entitled to receive (true) jnan
      (Knowledge). As this pure Knowledge dawns, all screens (veiling
      reality) will be lifted. (Soami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Prose, Part
      Two, Sayings of Swami Ji)

      40. The hallmark (a mark or sign of authenticity and excellence;
      outstanding distinguishing feature) of a Saint is ninefold:

      (1) a Saint always internally strengthens the faith and belief (isht
      and aqeeda) in the true Absolute Lord (Radhasoami Dayal);

      (2) he will never allow any seeker to struggle and wander about
      idols, tirthas and scriptures and "The Book";

      (3) he will never involve anyone in the worship of gods,
      incarnations and prophets;

      (4) he will ever prescribe the practice of Easy Yoga of Surat-Shabd
      except for which there is no other path to the Absolute Lord;

      (5) he will ever instruct the seekers to devote themselves to the
      service and love for the perfect Satguru of the time;

      (6) he will diminish daily the attachment and craving (asakti) of
      the seekers for wife, children, wealth and name and fame and self-
      glorification (maan-badaayee), and instead, will augment and enhance
      the love and liking (prem and preet) of the earnest seekers and
      lovers (khoji and anuragi) for the Supreme Being;

      (7) the true Saints always remain engrossed in meditation and
      contemplation (bhajan and dhyan) and they always engage their
      disciples in the same (processes);

      (8) they always drive out the dharmas and karmas (duties and
      actions) pertaining to past ages, doubts and delusions and they will
      cut out (delete or remove) belief in anyone save in the true
      Absolute Lord; and

      (9) gradually they will strike at (i.e. will deal a blow to) the
      roots of all bonds and fetters (bandhan) both inner and outer, and
      in this life itself will elevate their spirits to the Holy Feet of
      the Absolute Lord. But there are three pre-conditions to it:

      (a) the jiva [soul] should not run away (leave or depart) from their
      satsang and service;

      (b) day by day, he should go on intensifying his love and trust in
      their feet; and

      (c) should continue his spiritual practices according to their
      directions and instructions. (An Abstract of the teachings of Soami
      Ji Maharaj by Huzur Maharaj, Sar Bachan Prose, Part One)
