      Three Essential Teachings of the Radhasoami Faith

      Radhasoami Reality:

      {Radhaswami Dayal ki Daya Radhaswami Sahai:
      "Grant Merciful Radhasoami Thy Grace and Protection"}


      The Spiritual Love Discourses of the Lord of the Soul,
      (Prem/Love Patra/Discourse Radhasoami/Supreme Lord of All)
      Volume One (one of six volumes),
      By HH Huzur Maharaj Rai Bahadur Saligram Sahab (1829-1898)


      Every follower of the Radhasoami Faith should properly consider and
      understand three things and should have full faith and belief in
      them in his mind. Only then can he surrender himself mentally,
      intellectually and spiritually to the True Supreme Being Merciful
      Radhasoami to some extent. Only then will he be able to perform the
      practices of Simran [Repeating God's Name], Dhyan [visualizing the
      form of the Satguru, then contemplating the inner Light], and Bhajan
      [the soul (surat) worshipfully meditating upon the Internal Music or
      Sound Current (Shabd), becoming one with it (Yoga)] with sincerity.
      The object of his life would thereby be attained one day.


      Those three things are:


      (1) First of all, he should have belief in the fact that Merciful
      Radhasoami is the True Supreme Being and is Omnipotent and is always
      present in every individual.


      (2) Secondly, the soul is a particle or wave (ansa) of the Supreme
      Being just as the ray (ansa) of the Sun is an emanation of the Sun.


      (3) Thirdly, there is no way, excepting the practice of the Surat
      Shabd Yoga, which could lead one easily and without any obstruction
      to the Original Abode, nor has any other path superior to this been
      discovered so far.


      When one has full faith in these three things in his mind and has no
      doubts or misgivings about their being true, only then can the
      spiritual practices be performed with some success and only then can
      their benefit be experienced internally. It is only then that some
      genuine faith and reverence for the True Supreme Being would be
      engendered in the mind to some extent, and to the same extent would
      the conduct and way of life of the soul, both internally and
      externally, improve. Love, and faith in the Feet of the Satguru will
      go on increasing day by day. Gradually, thereafter perfect love will
      be achieved.


      More On Ansas/Souls: Particles, Waves, Rays,
      Emanations of the One Supreme Being Radhaswami


      The soul, which has come to this region as a ray on its own current
      from the Feet of the True Supreme Being, functions in every living
      thing. In reality, it alone is true and whatever other names and
      forms are seen here appear to be true only with its help but get
      destroyed when the soul or spirit leaves the body.


      The spirit and the Supreme Being Radhasoami are All-blissful and All-
      knowing. In other words, the Supreme Being Radhasoami is Omnipotent,
      All-blissful and All-knowing, and is present in every individual.
      The soul (jiva i.e. the spirit), is his particle or wave (ansa), for
      the powers that exist in the Supreme Being are present in the soul
      as well.


      The entire creation came into being according to the mauj (will) of
      the Supreme Lord, and every spirit-entity creates a separate
      physical body and develops it on the same principle. The creation of
      Pind (i.e. physical body in the physical plane) and of Brahmanda
      (i.e. the macrocosm, cosmos, regions of universal mind and matter)
      is similar and takes place in the same manner and on the same
      principle. The only difference is that the creation in the human
      body is small and the creation in Brahmanda is large, but the grades
      and the functions of the creation outside are exactly similar to
      those of the human body.


      [Note: "Mauj": Any, even the least commotion on the spiritual plane,
      which results in activity on the spiritual plane or even on the
      mental and physical planes is called 'mauj'. Literally, the word
      means 'wave' of the sea. As Saints also act from the spiritual
      plane, the term 'mauj' is also used when we speak about their will
      or pleasure.]


      The entire creation consists of currents. All the bodies that exist
      consist of currents. Just as cloth is woven out of threads and the
      branches and twigs of a tree are collections of threads, similarly
      the human body is also made up of currents or threads. Each one of
      the threads or nerves is a tube through which the current of the
      spirit flows. This is the general principle underlying the structure
      of all the physical bodies in the creation. When anybody speaks, his
      voice is heard by means of the current of sound. In the same manner,
      it is through the current of the spirit that the world becomes
      visible.


      When there was no creation, the first thing that happened was that a
      current issued forth from the Feet of the Supreme Being Merciful
      Radhasoami. This current is the current of Shabd and of Life and
      Light. The entire creation of all the regions, higher or lower,
      has been brought into existence by this current.


      The Supreme Being Merciful Radhasoami is enthroned within every one,
      and from there the current of the spirit, i.e. Life came down
      creating the Dayal Desh [Region of the Merciful], Brahmanda [regions
      of universal mind and matter] and Pind [physical plane, physical
      body], forming its centre [Seat of the Soul, Tishra til, Third Eye
      Center] between the two eyes within the human body, gives energy and
      life to the mind and senses and to every part of the body. As the
      current of the Spirit is itself the current of joy, pleasure,
      knowledge etc..., it is by means of this current that joy and
      pleasure is experienced by individuals through their sense-organs.


      Now if any person wishes that they should attain the highest bliss
      and eternal happiness after reaching the Fountainhead of this
      current which is the Reservoir of perfect bliss, perfect joy,
      perfect knowledge, they should contact this current of the spirit
      and with its help return to its Reservoir i.e. the Supreme Being
      Radhasoami.
