      While Alive We Can Experience the Heavens

      "Grant Merciful Radhasoami Thy Grace and Protection"}





      Param Sant Tulsi Sahib, Saint of Hathras, India:

      "In this life the concept of salvation all
      describe;
      To meet the Lord by dying while living,
      none discloses.
      They all speak of the goal of salvation after
      death;
      How to attain it while living, no one says.
      Were they to reveal the method of attaining
      release while living,
      Then alone would Tulsi be convinced of
      their words.

      Who speak, after seeing with their own eyes,
      And teach the method of salvation during
      life,
      Are of the stage and stature of Saints,
      For they reveal the quintessence of the soul."

      The following is an Arabic inscription at the site of a mosque at Fatehpur Sikri, India attributed to Isa or Yeshua: "The world is a bridge. Pass over it, but do not build your dwelling there."  It reminds me of a similar saying, also attributed to Jesus, found in the Gospel of Thomas that was unearthed in Egypt: "Become passers-by." One translator renders this as: "Come into being as you pass away."





      There is a wonderful book of Sant Dadu Dayal's mystic-poems recently published by Criterion Publications in New Delhi, volume 25 in their "Encyclopaedia of Saints of India" series.

      Urgency of Realisation

      This fragile and transient human life is speedily coming to its end. It is high time that we seek refuge in the Lord of Love. Only while living as a human being can the work be accomplished, not after death.





      Sant Dadu Dayal

      The mind is a deer, sayeth Dadu.
      Looking at the green forest of the world.
      This foolish one runs around puffed up
      with pleasure.
      It is destined to be a victim of Kal [lord of time, lord of death], the hunter.
      The body is like a passer-by,
      sayeth Dadu.
      No sooner dost thou look at him, that he goes out of sight.
      Be dedicated to the Name of God
      As long as there is breath in thy body.
      Hurry up, O passer-by, the journey hangs over thy head.
      Delay no more.
      What art thou doing sitting idle? Repeat God's Name.
      Evening has set in while the traveller is still in the forest.
      He must move briskly.
      This is not the time to be slack, warns Dadu.
      Go Home quickly.

      Gone is the time, and lost is the opportunity.
      Where shalt thou find this priceless birth once it slips out of hand?
      Catching hold of our hand, the Negative Power [Kal] is drawing us close day by day.
      The self does not awaken even now.
      Its time is spent asleep.
      While watching, 0 Dadu, the hair has grown white from black.
      Body, mind, and youth are all gone, and even now thou turnest not to God!
      While alive one can transcend bodily qualities.
      While alive one can be liberated;
      While alive one can shed all Karmas.
      That truly is called liberation.
      While alive one can cross over what is hard to cross,
      While alive can one go to the other shore.
      While alive one can find the Master of the world,
      And can attain discrimination and wisdom.
      If the meeting is not accomplished while alive,
      If the contact is not made while alive,
      If the Lord of the universe is not found while alive,
      The one is simply drowned.
      One is freed while alive,
      One is not freed after death, sayeth Dadu
      If one were to be free after death,
      Then all will come under that.
      Some say one can secure abode in paradise after death;
      They preach liberation after death.
      They, indeed, are making the world
      insane, O Dadu...............

      Do the repetition of God [God's Name] and forget
      Him not.
      Fulfil the purpose of thy birth
      by practising concentration.
      Be steadfast in the remembrance of God.
      Practice meditation with love, and sing
      the glory of God.
      The human body is the door to salvation.
      Do the repetitions of God, the Creator
      of the universe.
