      Shabd 8

      I

      Take your seat at the third. Til and have Guru' s Darshan there.
      (1)

      Always hear Guru's Shabd. By attaching yourself
      to Him, you will be able to annihilate all desires. (2)
      The Swarup (Form, Countenance) of Guru is highly pleasing and
      supremely refulgent like the sun. On seeing the sun, lotus expands
      its petals. And on seeing the lotus with petals expanded, the Bhonra
      (blackbee) becomes enamoured of it. You should love your Guru
      Radhasoami [ 107"
      just as Bhonra (black-bee) loves the lotus and
      the lotus loves the sun. (3-4)
      The hearts of those who have not been fortunate enough to receive
      Gyan (knowledge) from. Guru, remain shrouded in darkness. (5)
      They have not met a perfect Sat Guru. They remain wandering in the
      snares of the world. (6)
      Luckily I have met the Sat Guru. I sacrifice myself at Him. (7)
      I gaze at the Swarup (Form) of Guru the way a Chakor gazes at the
      moon. (8)
      Sat Guru is Shabd-swarup, that is, Shabd incarnate..
      His abode is in higher regions. (9)
      You are also Surat-swarup, that is, your real formm
      is also Surat, (not body or mind); follow Guru. (10)
      Guru's Rup (form) is in the eyes. Open your eyes. (11)
      Guru's Shabd is in the inner ears. Listen to the Shabd (sound)
      coming from Gagan. (12)
      Radhasoami is revealing the secrets of the real
      path. (13),
      Those who are fortunate enough to follow it shall
      cross the ocean of existence. (14)

      The beauty and elegance of Hansas (denizens) (8)

      Huge reservoirs of Ami (Amrit, nectar) are
      overflowing there. The Darshan (vision) of Sat Punish is the
      sustenance of the Hansas. (11)•
      Every day new spectacles are witnessed there. How should I describe
      the glory of that region ! (12)

      Beyond is Alakh Lok. Giving up subtle I-ness,
      my Surat goes there. (13)~

      How can the brilliance of Alakh Punish be described ? Thousand
      million suns and moons look dull in comparison.
      Each Surat has a lustre of ten million suns. Such
      is the form of Surats there. (15)

      My Surat gracefully steps forward and reaches Agam Lok. I observe
      the grandeur of that region. (16
      Unique is the majesty of Agam Purush. The resplendence exceeds a
      hundred thousand million suns. (17)

      Beyond it, is Anami Purush who is Akah
      (indescribable) and Apar (infinite). (18)
      Save Sants, no one has access there. Sants call it Nij Ghar (the
      true and original abode). (19)
      0 Soami ! You have given out the most sublimesecret. (20)
      Now, also be pleased to indicate how I can reachthere. Do awaken

      it is not possible to reachthere without Day d (grace and mercy).
      (22)
      Have no doubt about the efficacy of Surat ShabdYoga. Merge your
      Surat in Shabd slowly andgradually. (23)
      Soami has repeatedly enjoined upon all to practise Surat Shabd Yoga
      regularly. (24)
      The Arti (hymn of prayer) is now over. Sant Mat
      has been fully explained. (25)
      Shabd 2



      Today, I am performing a grand Arti; my support
      is Sumiran (repetition) of RADHASOAMI. (1)
      The pupil of the eye is the Thali (platter) for Arti,
      5 Glory of Sat Lok [ 111
      and Jyoti the lamp. Overflowing with love,
      I come before Soami. (2)
      I am having Darshan of Radhasoami with my eyes. I enshrine His Rup
      (Form) in my heart.
      I was Chakvi and Sat Guru was the Chakva. When the night (of
      ignorance) fell, I was separated from Him. (4)
      [See note to couplet 24. Shabd 4, Bachan 3 above.]
      I was plunged into darkness. I remained restless
      on this end. My Sat Guru, my Lord, is on the other end. How could I
      join Him ? I did not
      find the way. (5-6)
      Separated from my Beloved I mrithed in agony every moment. How am I
      to unite-with my Lord ? (7)
      Extremely restless and impatient, I called out Soami. He took me in
      His care. (8)
      By His grace, the night was soon over, the day broke and the sun
      rose within me.
      I was lying void below the region of the eyes, namely, Pind. Guru
      revealed to me the book telling of the other side, namely, Brahmand
      and Dayal Desh. (10)
      I removed the barrier and met the Guru, who enab
      led me to embark on the internal path of Parmarth. (11)

      I withdrew the spirit current from the two eyes:and saw Jyoti. My
      Surat entered Sahas-dalkanwal. (9)

          I

          Take your seat at the third. Til and have Guru' s Darshan there.
          (1)

          Always hear Guru's Shabd. By attaching yourself
          to Him, you will be able to annihilate all desires. (2)
          The Swarup (Form, Countenance) of Guru is highly pleasing and
          supremely refulgent like the sun. On seeing the sun, lotus expands
          its petals. And on seeing the lotus with petals expanded, the Bhonra
          (blackbee) becomes enamoured of it. You should love your Guru
          Radhasoami [ 107"
          just as Bhonra (black-bee) loves the lotus and
          the lotus loves the sun. (3-4)
          The hearts of those who have not been fortunate enough to receive
          Gyan (knowledge) from. Guru, remain shrouded in darkness. (5)
          They have not met a perfect Sat Guru. They remain wandering in the
          snares of the world. (6)
          Luckily I have met the Sat Guru. I sacrifice myself at Him. (7)
          I gaze at the Swarup (Form) of Guru the way a Chakor gazes at the
          moon. (8)
          Sat Guru is Shabd-swarup, that is, Shabd incarnate..
          His abode is in higher regions. (9)
          You are also Surat-swarup, that is, your real formm
          is also Surat, (not body or mind); follow Guru. (10)
          Guru's Rup (form) is in the eyes. Open your eyes. (11)
          Guru's Shabd is in the inner ears. Listen to the Shabd (sound)
          coming from Gagan. (12)
          Radhasoami is revealing the secrets of the real
          path. (13),
          Those who are fortunate enough to follow it shall
          cross the ocean of existence. (14)

          Next is the region of Sat Nam and Sat Shabd, ( 7)
          termed the fourth Pad (Region) by Sants.
          The beauty and elegance of Hansas (denizens) (8)
          cannot be adequately described. Each has a
          lustre of sixteen suns and moons.

          Gracefully designed and decorated are the Dweeps(islands) in each of
          which lives a Hans. (10),
          Huge reservoirs of Ami (Amrit, nectar) are
          overflowing there. The Darshan (vision) of Sat Punish is the
          sustenance of the Hansas. (11)•
          Every day new spectacles are witnessed there. How should I describe
          the glory of that region ! (12)

          Beyond is Alakh Lok. Giving up subtle I-ness,
          my Surat goes there. (13)~

          How can the brilliance of Alakh Punish be described ? Thousand
          million suns and moons look dull in comparison.
          Each Surat has a lustre of ten million suns. Such
          is the form of Surats there. (15)

          My Surat gracefully steps forward and reaches Agam Lok. I observe
          the grandeur of that region. (16
          Unique is the majesty of Agam Purush. The resplendence exceeds a
          hundred thousand million suns. (17)

          Beyond it, is Anami Purush who is Akah
          (indescribable) and Apar (infinite). (18)
          Save Sants, no one has access there. Sants call it Nij Ghar (the
          true and original abode). (19)
          0 Soami ! You have given out the most sublimesecret. (20)

          it is not possible to reachthere without Day d (grace and mercy).
          (22)
          Have no doubt about the efficacy of Surat ShabdYoga. Merge your
          Surat in Shabd slowly andgradually. (23)
          Soami has repeatedly enjoined upon all to practise Surat Shabd Yoga
          regularly. (24)
          The Arti (hymn of prayer) is now over. Sant Mat
          has been fully explained. (25)
          Shabd 2

          Today, I am performing a grand Arti; my support
          is Sumiran (repetition) of RADHASOAMI. (1)
          The pupil of the eye is the Thali (platter) for Arti,
          5 Glory of Sat Lok [ 111
          and Jyoti the lamp. Overflowing with love,
          I come before Soami. (2)
          I am having Darshan of Radhasoami with my eyes. I enshrine His Rup
          (Form) in my heart.
          I was Chakvi and Sat Guru was the Chakva. When the night (of
          ignorance) fell, I was separated from Him. (4)
          [See note to couplet 24. Shabd 4, Bachan 3 above.]
          I was plunged into darkness. I remained restless
          on this end. My Sat Guru, my Lord, is on the other end. How could I
          join Him ? I did not
          find the way. (5-6)
          Separated from my Beloved I mrithed in agony every moment. How am I
          to unite-with my Lord ? (7)
          Extremely restless and impatient, I called out Soami. He took me in
          His care. (8)
          By His grace, the night was soon over, the day broke and the sun
          rose within me.
          I was lying void below the region of the eyes, namely, Pind. Guru
          revealed to me the book telling of the other side, namely, Brahmand
          and Dayal Desh. (10)
          I removed the barrier and met the Guru, who enab
          led me to embark on the internal path of Parmarth. (11)
          My Surat went in and mingled with Shabd like

          and joy, and yearns for that of the higher centre or region. At each
