      Sayings of Baba Devi Sahab

       

      [Following is an English rendering of sayings of Baba Devi Sahab of Muradabad, Uttar Pradesh, India as published in Part II of the book (in Hindi) titled "Satsanga Yog" written by Maharshi Mehi Paramhans ji Maharaj, one of the all time greatest exponents of Santmat. Baba Devi Sahab was the Guru of Maharshi Mehi Paramhans ji Maharaj

      From the Preface to `Ghat Ramayan':
      [`Ghat Ramayan' is the name of a book popularly believed to have been authored by Sant Tulsi Sahab of Hathras, Uttar Pradesh, India. Baba Devi Sahab got the hand-written manuscript of Sant Tulsi Sahab of Hathras printed at Hathras itself in the year of 1896]

      The pathway to the liberation of `jiv' (individual soul) already exists within each one of us. Unless one treads onto this path himself/herself, it is not possible for him/her either to attain freedom (from the cycles of existence) which is the real fruit of any religion, or to know the true wisdom inherent in others' religions, or to understand the right meaning of the Scriptures belonging to his/her own religion or sect, regardless of however great a `pundit', `maulavi', or priest he/she might be. For such clerics/priests (who have not themselves attained to the true deliverance from the cycles of birth & death), religion or sect is either fun or a game show, or a nice tool/ploy/principle to mislead the innocent people and to incite communal violence and riots in the world; for it is verily possible to test and realise the truth or crux of every religion or sect or cult and the thermometer/barometer/yardstick that God has provided for the purpose is one and the same, kept hidden inside all, irrespective of whether he/she is prosperous, pauper, `pundit' (Hindu priest), `maulavi' (Muslim cleric), `paadri' (Christian priest), erudite, ignorant/stupid/unread, sinner, virtuous, or of caste ranging from the highest to the lowest down the ladder of social hierarchy. If a person, using the yardstick which indwells him/her, is unable to know or test the veracity and greatness of his/her own Guru or sect, how would he be able to judge others' religions, cults or sects?

      This thermometer, scale or yardstick is the inner pathway (present within each one of us) which has been divided or classified into fourteen levels/stages/categories:
