      (Click on the photo above and it will take you to the book, Radhsoami Mat Prakesh, the very first book on Sant Mat ever published in the English language around one hundred years ago.)

      (For in-depth definitions of the terms Bhakti and Bhajan, scroll down below to the excerpt from the English Glossary of the Radhasomi Faith.)


      Swami Ji Maharaj from, Importance of Devotion, Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry:

      Give up the sense of prestige of the world. Heed what I say, perform Bhakti.

      Banish fear and regard for caste and colour. Heed what I say, perform Bhakti.

      Fear not foe or friend. Heed what I say, perform Bhakti.

      Forsake fear of your parents. Heed what I say, perform Bhakti.

      Do not be afraid of your wife and children. Heed what I say, perform Bhakti.

      Do not be afraid of your brothers and nephews. Heed what I say, perform Bhakti.

      Have no fear of your mother-in-law and father-in-law. Heed what I say, perform Bhakti.

      Fear not your daughter-in-law and son-in-law. Heed what I say, perform Bhakti.

      Cast off fear of your friends and acquaintances. Heed what I say, perform Bhakti.

      Have no fear of kith and kin. Engage in Bhakti.

      When you have resolved to apply yourself to Bhakti, have no fear of them. You should perform Bhakti.

      Should you fear the ignorant and foolish who are unaware of the secrets? Perform Bhakti.

      Let your mind be free from fear of all these people. Listen to me, my dear, perform Bhakti.
       
      An anchorite of one sect feels ashamed of that of another. Such people are imperfect. They should perform Bhakti.

      So long as you are not free from fear of all, you are imperfect. So, perform Bhakti.

      Honor, dishonour whatever befalls you, consider such to be the Mauj [divine will or plan], and keep on performing Bhakti.

      Derive strength from Guru, to face all sorts of situations. I tell you, my dear, perform Bhakti.

      Nobody can cause you any harm. Why do you fear? Perform Bhakti.

      Nothing happens without the Mauj (divine will or plan, ordainment) of Guru. I tell you my, dear, perform Bhakti.

      You are imperfect in your Bhakti; That is why you falter. What more am I to tell you? Go on performing Bhakti.

      Slowly and gradually you will gain stability. There is no other remedy but to perform Bhakti.

      One day your imperfect Bhakti will become perfect. Give up hypocrisy; perform Bhakti.

      Insincere and hypocritical Bhakti will be of no avail. It does not matter if your Bhakti is imperfect. Perform Bhakti.

      Radhasoami graciously declares that you should perform Bhakti in whichever way you can.  (Soami Ji Maharaj)
