Religions were created to inspire and guide the inner consciousness of man, and to transform it :

from animality to from humanity to from nobility to from spirituality to

from the angelic to

‘humanity,’ ‘nobility,’

‘spirituality,’ ‘the angelic,’


But, generally, we, the so-called religious people, do not transcend these planes of consciousness, and tend to continue in our usual materialistic way of life.

Religion is to be lived and practised with every breath, and should be reflected and manifested in all aspects of life.

If religion does not transform our consciousness and make a better and nobler man of us, then the adoption and profession of religion becomes :--






self-deceiving, bigotry, egoistic, and

a mockery !

In fact, Religion is meant to provide a link between God and man, and between ‘man and man,’ but when the emphasis is more on :—

norms and forms, creeds and dogmas, rites and rituals, conformity and conduct,

rather than on GOD and HIS LOVE, then, Religion itself becomes a hindrance between Man and God, and a wall between man and man !

Religion is NOT merely intellectual belief,

or, to be

faith, theology, philosophy, dogmas, rites,

rituals, ceremonies, discussions, do’s,

don’ ts,

learned, practised, adopted, owned,


professed, possessed,

Just to satisfy our false sense of egoistic imaginations and hypothesis.

Various religions,

numerous sects and sub-sects, ever changing dogmas and beliefs, divergent interpretations,

different intellectual presentations, changing rites and ceremonies, contradictory practices,

through the ages — are proof of imaginative,

superfluous, hypothetical, illusive

nature of fickle ideology, belief and conception about God and religion !

These mental beliefs and dogmas merely remain an ‘obsession’ of mind and is manifested in hair- splitting discourses and discussions of theories and philosophies.

This obsessional religious zeal often explodes into emotional fanaticism, causing untold sufferings and destruction.

In our narrow-minded religious ignorance and bigotry, we have reduced ‘Religion’ to : —

selfishness, egoism,


partisanship, showmanship, bargaining, shop-keeping, and commercialism !

‘Religion’ denotes :--

Goodness, compassion,

kindness, fairness,

charity, nobility,

forgiveness, tolerance,

co-existance, magnanimity,

service, affection,

love, happiness,

health, prosperity,

peace, bliss,

and all other sublime virtues of Divinity.

If our thoughts and actions do not reflect these sublime virtues, we denigrate and malign our adopted religion, and make a mockery of it !


‘Religion’ is opposed, contradictory and antithetic to :—

selfishness, unkindness,

injustice, corruption,

avarice jealousy

malice, hatred,

envy, prejudice,

anger, aggression,

wickedness, strife,

enmity, cruelty,

sensuality and egoism.

Attachment to any thing in the world, is like a ‘screen’ between God and man. We keep up such screens of separation with tenacity and determined application.

We cling to religion as :

an ornament, embellishment,

certificate of credibility, testimonial,


appendage, fashion,

feather-in-the cap !

So God stays away from us — as we simply do not ‘need Him, yet !

When we actually feel the need for Him, yearn and cry for Him and His Love, ‘Religiosity’ is torn asunder, and universal aspect of religion shines forth with the grace of God and is perceived and realised in full glory of Divine Light and Love !

In fact, religion is generally adopted for: —



material gain,


camouflage for our karmas, boosting the ego,

escape from ‘Satan’, and salvation from re-birth,

but, NOT with a flame of ‘Love of God in the Heart’!

Any religion, which preaches, propagates and encourages directly or indirectly : —

discord, hatred,

division, repulsion,



conflict, confrontation,

bigotry, violence,


superiority complex,

exclusiveness, partisanship, and


is not worth being called a ‘Religion’!

During the ages, the ‘consciousness’ of man got: —

bogged down, fascinated, attracted, absorbed, entangled and lost

in the glittering illusion of ‘Maya’, entirely forgetting the original golden thread of Divinity running through the cosmos.

Consequently, our changing, imperfect, limited, whimsical ‘intelligence’ becomes the 'base' of our so-called religions.

All ideologies or beliefs, based on such imperfect fickle intelligence, can also be : —

superfluous, imaginary, illusive,


hypothetical, whimsical, variant,

opposite, contradictory, and controversial.

This explains the emergence of : — so many religions,

numerous sects and sub-sects, ever-changing dogmas and beliefs, different rites and rituals,

divergent religious approaches, contradictory teachings, confronting ideologies and beliefs, bigotry,

religious communalism, religious fanaticism, religious hatred, religious strife,

religious confrontation, religious enmity,

religious atrocities, religious crusades,

and what not !

It is strange and ironical that man —

with 1. all his physical, intellectual, emotional

advancement, and boastful modern civilization,


2. Proliferation of numerous religions into various sects and sub-sects;

3. profusion of religious knowledge and philosophy;

4. hair-splitting discussions and discourses about religions, ideologies and theories;

5. plethora of religious books and scriptures;

6. un-ending exhortation and propagation of religious sermons and dogmas through modern scientific electronic gadgets;

7. Multiplication and exaltation of religious temples and institutions;

8. surfeit of so-called God-men or sadhus,

has failed to : —

comprehend, realise,

grasp, recognise, and identify,

the subtle difference between : —

1. the ‘One’ universal ‘Religion of Love’ or ‘Nam’ of the Divine Realm,


2. various dogmatic religions of the world.

In fact, ‘Religion’, is two-pronged or two faced :—

1. One aspect of it, is the outer religion, which we term as ‘karm-kand’ or dogmatic religion of rituals.


2. The other aspect, is the esoteric Religion’ i.e, inner universal religion of the soul.

The former is a ‘means’ to achieve the latter, which is the ULTIMATE END of our religious journey.

The only object of ‘Religions’ is to

encourage, stimulate, induce, motivate, inspire, and drive

the soul to ‘turn inward’ — deeper and deeper — till we arrive at the ULTIMATE DEPTH — the Divine Home of the soul.

If the outer ‘ritual religion’ does not inspire and take us to the Ultimate Divine Realm — it becomes meaningless.

It is a pity that with all his intellectual knowledge and scientific achievements man is still ignorant or conveniently complacement of the Truth about ‘God’ and Religion !

In fact, man’s misguided intelligence, galvanized with illusive ‘Maya’, is the cause of misconceptions and confusion about ‘God’ ‘Religion’, or things pertaining to the Divine Realm.




‘Things Divine’ are beyond the comprehension or grasp of our limited intelligence. They can only be perceived or realized by the ‘insight’ of the Soul — called ‘intution’ or the ‘Third eye’ — in the sublime company of the IIluminated Souls, i.e., — sadh sangat.

When we try to understand secrets of the celestial world, with hazy vision of our limited intelligence, we mix up and confuse the things of the two different worlds, and get confounded, resulting in: —


confusion, controversies,

confrontation, ill-will,


bigotry, and hypocrisy

in regard to ‘God’ and ‘Religion’. The outer religions comprise :—



scripture quoting,


convincing discourses, hair-splitting philosophies,

rituals, rites, and


The intellectual preacher of this outer religion lives in the world of senses and by his clever logic & theories, builds convincing systems of religions, out of meagre details,writes brilliant treatises, but he is ‘NOT LIVING’, as he is not in touch with the Higher ones, he knows them not, nor has he the ‘eye’ of faith to see the Real Divine Realm of Bliss, joy, peace, love & Glory.

Religion is meant to :—

1. transcend mind, heart and intelligence,

2. transform intellectual theories and philosophies

into practical religion,

3. remould the man in the ‘Image of God’ — as God intended him to be, and

4. elevate the conciousness of man from materialistic world to the Divine Realm.

God is Man’s elemental need, and religion is a psychological necessity.

God is the ultimate fulfilment of life.

The Divine Religion is the innate heritage of every soul, but is lying dormant and latent, hidden in our wordly consciousness.


This Divine Heritage of Divine Grace and Light has tobe:—


ignited, activated,

developed, and manifested

in our consciousness.

Man's profound intelligence has been able to develop the materialistic science to unlimited horizons of the cosmos, but is incapable to comprehend and grasp the science of the soul.

Our modern science, despite all credible achievements, is still groping for the real purpose of life.

Our intelletual gymnastics and earnest reasonings to prove one very abstract point, or its opposite-exude an air of unreality.

Such mind boggling logical exploits, may by the professional philosopher’s excursion, but definitely the common man's despair,

This Spiritual ‘Science of the Soul’ can only be realised and experienced through inner ‘Intuition’ or the innate Divine Intelligence of the soul.

In fact, it is the transformation and transmutation of our consciousness, from materialistic world, to the Realm of Divine Grace and light.


Any religion or faith, which deviates, distracts and diverts our attention and belief, from the above mentioned genesis of Divine Truth, is a 'misnomer' and is not worth to be called a religion !

The profound confusion, frustration, unhappiness, sorrow and misery prevailing in the world, is the direct result of

misunderstanding, misconception,

confusion bigotry, and


of the so- called professed religions !

To clear the mind of dogmatic theolegical debris,it is essential to attune it to Divine Vision within, which alone can guide us, through the worldly consciousness of the cosmos, to the Divine Consciousness. This is the only way to transcend the sordid world of the illusive Maya, and find refuge and solace in the Divine Realm.

The only way of salvation or freedom from the sordid, cruel butchery of ‘Maya’, is to TURN BACK and take refuge in the True Universal Divine Religion.

This ‘turning back’ from the world of ‘Maya’ to the world of ‘Shabad’ or ‘Divine Grace’ is not a physical, intellectual or emotional process. It is essentially a process of transformation or transmutation of ‘consciousness’ on the ‘Intuitional’ plane.


This transition of transformation of our thoughts, beliefs, faith and consciousness, from the illusive, materialistic world, to the Divine Realm, is the:


The only ONE,

Divine Religion.

In fact, it is the :—

Original, Living,

Vibrating Universal,

Ultimate, Eternal

primal, spontaneous,

simple, natural,


Religion — inlaid and inherited by every soul.

Sometimes we do come across expressions of such spontaneous simple faith amongst simple, unlettered guileless folks, which put to shame the so-called intellectual religious professionals !

The self-realised, enlightened simplicity of human life in its own natural sympathy, labour, faith and love, is after all the simplest and highest practical universal religion of the masses.


But Such simple, natural, spontaneous, universal religion can only be instilled, into the consciousness of the masses by the spiritual genius of supernatural vision of Enlightened God man, i.e., sadh sangat.

The humanity would be much better off, if it is not beguiled and confused with different, contradictory, and dogmatic religions !

The ‘Divine Light’ or the ‘Essence of Divine Grace’ is called ‘SHABAD’– the word-less ‘WORD’.

prophets and sages may come and go, but this word-less ‘WORD’ IS THE

all engulfing, all pervading, all illuminating, unchanging,

Eternal Divine Light, which has been enlightening and sustaining the Cosmos, since eternity.

This same ‘SHABAD’ was in the beginning, during the ages, and pervades through the whole cosmos.

All the Gurus, prophets and Sages were illuminated and possessed of this same ‘SHABAD’.

We may give different names to this ‘SHABAD’ in various languages, but the essence of this word-less ‘WORD’, is the same ‘Divine Grace and Light’.

Therefore, this word-less ‘WORD’, or ‘SHABAD’ is the : —

true, vibrating,



‘Guru’ of the universe. To:—

all-Illuminating, all-Engulfing,

all-powerful, and eternal

realise, partake,

experience, enjoy,

emanate, spread, and


the Divine Blessings of joy, Bliss and Love, is the only :—

true, basic,

orginal, ultimate, and


Universal Divine Religion !

Consciousness of this ‘Divine Truth’ or ‘Nam’ is the core or quintessence in the ‘Cosmos’, around which all the major religions revolve.

All the True Religions are expression and projections of this basic Divine ‘RELIGION OF LOVE’, which are preached, propagated and glorified in different :–

norms, forms,


dogmas, creeds, rites,

rituals, and ceremonies

for the upliftment and salvation of humanity.

This inner transition of‘transformation of consciousness’, from ‘Maya’ to the Divine Realm of Joy, peace, Bliss, love and Grace, is the True, practical, Universal, Divine Religion.

If this ‘transformation of consciousness’ does not take place, and our life is not ‘changed’ for the better, the ‘religion’ remains :—

physical exercise mental excursion,

intellectual satisfaction, emotional reveries,

obsession of mind, hypothetical belief,

resulting in :–

superfluous faith, shallow theology,

dry philosophy, meaningless dogmas,

dead rites, dry rituals,

dreary ceremonies,

superiority complex, pride,


hatred, jealousy,

malice, bigotry,

strife, aggrandizement,

enmity, and hypocrisy

in the guise of ‘religion’ !

Every religion proclaims the cardinal principles of Truth, Righteousness & love, based on the

Fatherhood of God, and

Brotherhood of men.

The underlying unity between scriptures of all faiths, also bear an unmistakable testimony to the ‘Universality’ of religion.

But in actual practice, we overlook, ignore and forget the subtle ‘universal aspect’ of Religion, and unconsciously slip into superfluous dogmatic aspects of religious : —

differences, opposition,

contradiction, confrontation,

hatred, strife,

bigotry, violence, etc.


Thus, we deny or belie the subtle basic principles of ‘Religious Unity’ or Universality.

It is only the golden thread of ‘Divine Love’ which is:—

all-pervading, all-embracing, all-loving eternal, spontaneous, in-laid, inherent, innate,

in all hearts and souls, which govern, direct and motivate all subtle deep feelings and actions of life.

Therefore, this thread of ‘Divine Love’ is essential and most potential of Universal Religion.

In fact, a Religion cannot be called ‘Universal’, without the current of ‘Divine Love’.

Usually, every religion proclaims & preaches ‘Love’, but it becomes :—

superfluous, limited,

one-sided, diluted,

polluted, and stagnated

with bigotry and religious pride.


Stagnated water gets putrified and polluted in course of time. on the other hand when it is connected to the main stream, it remains fresh and pure.

Similarly our mind, emotions and Love can be pure & fresh, so long as it is connected to or in tune with, the main current of Divine Life.

The consciousness of egoistic- self and sense of possession disconnects our mind from the Divine Life Stream and makes our thoughts, emotions and Love, diluted, polutted and stagnant.

We sincerely love our own children, but cannot love other’s with the same fervour. Similarly, our love is biased when we deal with people of other faiths !

There can be NO UNIVERSALITY in religions, unless the soul transcends the limits of worldly consciousness and enters the subtle and purified state of ‘Divine Consciousness’. In this Supra- consciousness, the soul is in touch, and in tune with the Divine consciousness, where there is a sense of

ONE in All, and All in ONE,

engulfed in the Bliss of Divine Love.

Therefore, the

activation, expression,

manifestation, proliferation, and



of Divine Love, in the vast cosmos, is the: —


This :—

original, primal,

basic, eternal,

practical, vibrating,

living, True

all-pervading, all-engulfing,

all-loving, inherent,

Eternal ‘LOVE RELIGION’ is working : —

incessantly, eternally,

silently, imperceptibly,

secretly, spontaneously,

hidden, latent,




perfectly, and meticulously,

within every soul of the cosmos, for its individual evolution and emancipation.

This vibrating and blissful ‘Love-Religion,’ is beyond the comprehension and grasp of limited human intelligence, and needs no ‘man-made’ :

conventions, dogmas,

rites, rituals,

theories, sermons, and


Hence, this Universal ‘Love Religion’ cannot be :—

learnt, achieved,

through intellectual :—

knowledge, philosophies,

discussions, research,

grasped, or imposed

preachings, theorising,

sermonising, propagating,



recitations, rites,

rituals, do's, and


This ‘Love-Religion’ is simply a DIVINE GIFT,

from the Divine Realm, bestowed through :–

company, guidance,

inspiration, infection,

ignition, and grace

of Illuminated souls, blessed with Divine Vision.

This process of :–

‘conversion’ of soul —

from ulterior dogmatic religion,

to inner Universal ‘Love Religion’,

Or ‘transformation of consciousness’

from the wordly plane,

to the super-consciousness of DIVINE VISION.

is going on silently, imperceptibly, incessantly but surely, through the guidance and grace of Illuminated God- men of Divine Vision, i.e., Sadh sangat.


This natural sublime evolution of souls, goes on unconsciously and spontaneously, according to the Law of Dispensation of Divine Grace and Love, irrespective of religious preaching or propagation, like the natural spontaneous growth and blooming of the flower.

All this secret and sacred Dispensation of Divine Grace and Love is working :–

in spite of : —

incessantly, eternally,

silently, spontaneously, and


1. darkest period of evolution of souls in ‘KAL- YUG’,

2. scarcity of real Illuminated soul of Diving Vision in the universe,

3. tremendous distraction of glittering illusive MAYA,

4. neutralising and nullifying effect of the superflous, dogmatic religious propoganda,

5. malice and persecution of Illuminated man of Vision, by the established dogmatic religions.

Flower emanates and spreads :–

fragrance, beauty,

colours, tenderness,


to every one

without any

kindness, and magnanimity

un-consciously, spontaneously, and


condition, distinction,

This process of : —

prejudice,and pride

accumulating, condensing,

preserving, emanating, and


the fragrance and beauty of the flower is the

true, natural,

spontaneous, inlaid,


religion of the flower.

Similarly, the Divine ‘Gift of Love’, inlaid and inherent in every soul, is the fundamental True Universal Religion of man.


This ‘Love– Religion’ is the expression, projection and dispensation of :—

Divine Grace,

Divine Bliss,

Divine Joy,

Divine Light,

Divine Compassion, Divine Kindness, and Divine Kinship,

through human heart and soul.

With our little false ‘Ego-centric consciousness’, we have blocked the incessent flow of Divine Love into our mind and there by deprived ourselves of all the Divine Blessings of ‘Love- Religion’.

As and when we become conscious of our Divine Heritage, through inward deep meditation and in sublime company of Awakened and Illuminated souls, we partake and enjoy the Divine Blessings, and we shall thereby express and emanate the Glory of Divine Love.

Thus, the spiritual aspirant is wholly purified and engulfed by the Divine Grace and Light of his presence, so that no trace of :–

desire, selfishness,

greed, passion,



resentment, indignation,

malice, discord,

prejudice, jealousy, anger,

enmity, revenge, and

any other base thoughts, are left in his consciousness!

Thus, ‘Divine Love’ becomes : — all-knowing,

all-embracing, all-engulfing, all-pervading, all-powerfull, all-absorbing, all-intoxicating,

and essence of all religions.

Therefore, the aspirant overgrows all conventional religions, and soars in the infinite skies of the Divine Realm !

His only True, Eternal, Universal, living Religion, is to : —

live in love, move in love, breathe in love, sleep in love,


swim in love,

soar in love,

eat love,

drink love,

wear love,

think love,

speak love,

dream love,

get lost in an ecstasy of love, become embodiment of Love or ‘LOVE Personified’ !

He becomes a ‘LOVE-ROSE’ of the ‘Divine Garden’, unconsciously emanating the Divine attributes of :–

beauty, fragrance,

sunshine, tenderness,

and thereby : —

kindness, sweetness,

forgiveness, compassion,

magnanimity, peace,

expressing, exalting,


joy, bliss,

grace, Love,

glorifying, and propagating

the Glory of the LORD, and sharing with others the Divine joy, Bliss, Grace and Love.

The general public is not interested or superficially interested in religion. Even so, they adopt religion for their material gains or mental and emotional satisfaction.

Some of them do follow religion seriously for their own salvation from ‘satan’ or ‘Mukti’.

Even the so- called religious preachers are ignorant of — or conveniently indifferent to — the esoteric spiritual religion of the soul ! Although they preach, propagate and exhort about spiritual matters, through quotations from scriptures, they themselves have little or no interest, faith or conviction about the spiritual religion of the soul, i.e.,Divine Grace and Light or ‘Nam’ !!!

Therefore, the outer show and profession of ‘Religiosity’, may not be a true expression of ‘spirituality’ !

We may go about as religious people ‘without any ‘spiritualism’ –with God ‘staying away’ from us !

Very few seek God for his sake alone.

only a handful of aspirants, devotees do really

yearn and long for God, and cry for His Grace and Love.

Both the outer dogmatic and inner spiritual aspects of religions are supposed to be complementary and


supplementary to each other, and source of inspiration and drive for the aspiring soul.

But the ignorance or misconception of either or both aspects of religions,

makes them look like : —

to each other !

different, opposite,

contradictory, confrontative, and

anti- thetic

The outer dogmatic aspects of religions have already been discussed,described, explained and dilated into hair-splitting details in the various scriptures and by their preachers, in spite of which there is so much : —

misunderstanding, misconception, confusion, controversies, confrontation, bigotry, and hypocrisy,

amongst their followers !

If there can be so much cofusion and misconception about the outer aspects of religions, which are amenable to our intellectual research and analysis, then, the ignorance and misconception of the spiritual aspects of religions is imperative and natural, since it is beyond the grasp of our intelligence.


In the pitch darkness, there are bound to be differences and controversies about the perception of things. when the light is put ON, we get the correct perception of everything and all confusion and controversies are solved.

The intellectual has, therefore, no authenticity of the Divine Vision and whatever he preaches is : —

vague logic, clever theories,

empty ethics,

dry philosophy,

hypothetic faith, superficial convictions,

superstitious belief, and dead religion.

These religious preachers live in darkness of ignorance, without the Inner Intuitional Light.

‘Ignorance’ does not mean ignorance of ‘why’ and the ‘wherefore’ of creation, but it is a life lived in darkness of the ‘soul’:—

Intellectual beliefs, arrived,- at convictions, made-up faiths, forced-in thoughts, logical ethics,

imposed religions, and vague theories,


are artificial props of intellectual pillars, to support a well deliberated scheme of religious life, which are only : —

diseases distractions, and

hindrances in the path of soul-evolution.

The scholars, intellectuals & religious preachers, so-called saints and self-proclaimed gurus, mis-interpret Divine Nectar of life.,i.e.,‘NAM’ for mere intellectual ‘gargling’ so to say, while the blessed ones sip and drink the Nectar and live intoxicated life of Divine Bliss, Joy, peace and Love, and bask in the cosy Sunshine of Divine presence.

So long as we prefer to live in the darkness of illusive MAYA, there are bound to be : —

differences, misconceptions,

controversies, and confusion

and what not, in all aspects of our life, including Religion.

All ills and miseries of humanity, sprout from, and are aggravated by, the darkness of illusive Maya i.e., the absence of Divine Light.

This darkness of Maya cannot be removed or elimi- nated by egoistic human efforts alone. It can only be substituted with the Divine light — by the Grace of the


Guru — through the help and guidance of His Illuminated Souls — ‘Sadh Sangat’.

All scriptures have emphasised and exalted the value of ‘Sadh Sangat’ i.e. the sublime company of the Blessed Souls or Saints.

If a child gets admission in a good school and is placed under the tuition of a competent teacher, his smooth successful educational career is assured.

Similarly, if a student of the ‘Science of Soul’ finds place at the feet of illuminated Blessed Souls, or Sadh - Sangat, his spiritual advancement and development is as- sured.

Therefore, the most important and crucial point for the Aspirant or ‘Bhagta’ is to seek the company of Awakened and Illuminated souls, the Sadh-Sangat, who have been blessed with the Divine Grace and Light i.e., ‘NAM’.

The problem of spiritual life is that of finding truly Illuminated Souls or Sadh-Sangat.

Having found a True Guru, all we have to do, is to surrender ourselves completely and unconditionally to him and walk the way of implicit obedience. Nothing else is necessary. What is needed is loving surrender to the Guru. He is the ever-compassionate one. He awakens, ignites and illuminates our dormant soul with Divine Light, as we walk in the darkness of this world. He transmutes our senses and mind, and purifies and illumines our heart. And holding us by the hand, He leads us on the path, until the curtain of illusive ‘Maya’ drops,


the veils are removed, and we behold the Beloved face to face.

In the past, Sages, Gurus and prophets have been teaching the techinque of ‘turning inwards’, to inspire, motivate and re-direct our consciousness, back to our Divine Home in our souls, by putting us in direct contact with the ‘word-less WORD-the ‘SHABAD’ — the Ultimate Divine Essence.

But we have conveniently ignored and forgotten these invaluable Divine instructions, to our own detriment and peril !

Even now, the technique of turning ‘inward’, or transformation of consciousness, may be learned and achieved with the : —


company, guidance,

inspiration, infection,

ignition, grace,

Inspired, Awakened,

Illuminated, and Blessed

Souls or Saints-‘SADH SANGAT’.

To be blessed with the company of sublime ‘Sadh- Sangat’, is a rare privilege. The very presence of such blessed souls gives more than a million books !


Out of ‘LIFE’ cometh life ; and true Illuminated Souls can wake up within you, the centre of Light’.

For the attainment of such exalted spiritual Consciousness, the following points are most important and essential : —

1. ‘Sadh Sangat’, i.e., company of Illuminated souls of Divine Vision,

2. Meditation i.e., ‘Simran’,

3. Loving selfless service i.e., ‘SEVA’.




‘‘Some practical advices and percepts on this subject from some Illuminated Blessed Sages and Saints may be useful in guiding the sincere spiritual aspirants and students of the ‘Science of the Soul’.

‘‘Minute sensitive waves of ‘thought-current’ are constantly and habitually scattered and wasted in the outer direction towards materialistic world, and are spent, absorbed and lost in materialism. These extroverted thought-waves have to be collected, concentrated and re- directed inwards — to the Source of Divine Light i.e., our Soul’’.

This reverse process of mind, from ‘extrovert’ to ‘introvert’, is called ‘Meditation’ or ‘Simran’.

The easiest process of Meditation is to concentrate the mind on the Divine Word–‘SHABAD‘or ‘GUR- MANTAR’, and repeat it continuously for some minutes in the beginning.

The duration of meditation should be increased gradually with practice.

Sit in a comfortable posture, close your eyes and meditate at fixed time, regularly every day, morning and evening and at any other available time.

Repeat the ‘Gur Mantar’ in low voice, so that you can hear the whisper of Gurmantar, uttered by yourself. By this simple method, concentration on the ‘WORD’ becomes easy and smooth.


This is the preliminary technique for the beginners only. In due course, with consistent practice, the ‘Gurmantar’ will imperceptibly dissolve into ‘SHABAD’ i.e., word-less ‘LIVING WORD’, vibrating with Sublime Thrill, Bliss, Joy and Love. At this stage, meditation i.e., ‘Simran’ becomes effortless, automatic, spontaneous and enjoyable.

For the practice of concentration and meditation, the following things are essential : —

silence, solitude,

regularity, guidance, and


of Awakened and Illuminated Saints, blessed with Divine Grace and Light, i.e., ‘‘Sadh Sangat’’.


‘‘ Through meditation, you will gradually grow into harmony with Divine rhythmetic vibrations, and become more and more ‘god-like’, magnetic and endearing to all.

As you grow in meditation, you will find that veil after veil of illusive darkness of Maya is withdrawn, until a new revelation of the Divine Realm rises before you, with new Divine Consciousness’’.


‘‘Repeat the Name of God– again and again, as you : —

sit in a bus or train to office, work in the kitchen or garden,


during your walks,

as you take your bath,

as you dress up,

before going to sleep,

during sleep, and on awakening.

Repeat the Name as often as you can.

Repeat the Name with love and longing in your heart and tears in your eyes. Take care that the repetition does not become mechanical and boring.’’


‘‘Fasten this one ‘Word’, ‘Gurmantar’ to your heart.

Let the ‘Word’ go with you in your daily work and your daily life,

The ‘WORD’ will keep your consciousness awake.

In case of doubt, temptation or trouble, solve it with this ONE WORD !

Repeat the WORD, Until it : —

penetrates your heart, engulfs your soul,

‘hear, it with your ‘heart’ !

‘see’ it in your integral ‘intuition’ and

your whole being becomes this ONE WORD! All else is evaporated or eliminated ! ’’


‘‘The reverse process of transformation of Consciousness is a difficult and tardy work, but it


becomes easy and smooth in the company of Illuminated and Enlightened Souls i.e., ‘Sadh-Sangat’.

As this reverse process takes place in our life, our mind is gradually purified and spiritualised in the ‘Sadh- Sangat’ and becomes amenable and conductive to the sublime influence of subtle vibrations of Divine Grace and Light. At the same time the influence of materialism is imperceptibly reduced and eliminated from our consciousness.

The more our thoughts are spiritualised by sublime company or ‘Sadh–Sangat’ and meditation, the more they become subtler, powerful, dynamic and magnetic with reflections from Divine Grace and Light.

Ultimately, when our soul is awakened and illuminated with Divine Light, by the Grace of the Guru, we, in turn, become channel or pipe-line for the outward flow and expression of all Divine attributes of kindness, joy, Bliss, Love, Compassion, etc.’’


‘‘The personal contact or company is the easiest and quickest way of conveying thoughts and influencing others.

The effect of such influence of thoughts is dependent on the intensity and conviction of one’s feelings on the one side, and the receptibility of the other mind.

Hence, persons of developed minds, with deep convictions and strong faith, can influence and infect weaker minds- with their thoughts and beliefs.

Where vocal exhortations, or intellectual propaganda

fail to leave any sustaining mark on the minds of the


audience, the very presence of a dynamic enlightened personality can silently inspire and transform the lives of people with his penetrating dynamic spiritual rays and vibrations, which constantly emanate from his sublime dynamic Spiritual personality.

The same principle applies to the intuitional writings of the Enlightened Souls, which are ever fresh, original and soul-stirring.

If cultivated powerful mind can effect the ordinary mind so deeply on the mental and emotional plane, the Enlightened Divine Soul can also inspire, awaken and ignite the aspiring souls and usher them into the subtle intuitional plane of Divine Ream.

If the laser rays or radio-active radiation can penetrate through thick metal–and the destructive flash of the ‘lightening’ can do so much havoc on the physical plane, the dynamic spiritual subtle rays of Divine Vibrations- emanating from the Dynamic personality of a God- Man-can also pierce the thick clouds of materialistic ideas and intellectual conceptions, and touch the Divine fringes of the soul of the aspirant and usher him into the Divine Realm.

Thus the silent rays of Divinity can transform the life of an aspiring soul into a spiritual ‘God-Man’, having been re-born into the Divine Realm.

This is the direct way of ‘introduction’ of Souls into the Divine Realm of Grace and Light.

The most difficult part of it is that of finding and recognising Truly Enlightened Spiritual Souls or ‘God- Men’.



‘‘If we desire and aspire for higher, nobler, healthier, happier life, it is essential that first of all we avoid, discard, forget or brush aside our baser ideas and thoughts at once, as soon as they sprout in our mind, and at the same time replace or substitute them with higher, nobler, inspiring thoughts by invoking the help and guidance of Guru’s Grace, and seek and imbibe sublime inspiration of Gurbani and holy company of Awakened and Enlightened Souls.

If these depraved thoughts are not forgotten or diverted in the first instance, and are entertained and cultivated, they percolate and penetrate deep into our mind and sub-Consciousness gradually. in course of time, they become insiduous and powerful to enslave us, making our lives unhappy, corrupt, depraved and miserable, with a trail of baser elements of selfishness, envy, avarice, jealousy, hatred, anger, egoism, aggressiveness, wickedness, cruelty and what not’’.


‘‘The one thing essential for meditation is ‘concentration’ , one -pointedness of the mind. The mind must become steady, as s flame flickers not.

The wind or worldiness disturbs our mind and makes it flicker.

There are lamps enclosed in glass cases. They are called ‘hurricane lanterns’. Storms may blow outside, but they do not touch the flame. They continue to burn steady and bright.

Living in the world, as we do, our minds cannot remain steady without a protective influence.


This protective influence is ‘Sadh– Sangat or the fellowship with the Enlightened and pure ones. Blessed amongst men, is, who lives in the company of fellowship with the Blessed and pure ones, who have realised the Divine Truth. They help the seeker to discipline the mind. The unsteady, wavering, restless and doubting mind becomes steady, unflickering and faithful under the purifying influence of ‘‘Illuminated Souls’’.

When the mind is purified, a higher Center of consciousness wakes up — called ‘Intuition’ — with which the seeker no longer wavers or doubt; he ‘sees’ , he ‘knows’, he enjoys the Bliss and Joy of Divine Grace.”

“What is needed is the ‘loving surrender’ to the Master, The Guru.

The way of ‘Love’ is the simple way.

He, Who would walk the way of Love, will also have to study the scripture of the Soul and on every page of the Soul scripture, is inscribed the Name of the Beloved in Celestial Light, i.e., ‘SHABAD’.

He, who would walk the ‘Way of Love’, need not torment his body, nor practise ‘prana-yama’, nor undertake pilgrimages to Holy places. The ‘pilgrim’ of the ‘Way of Love’, live and moves, and has his breath in the ‘One Beloved’ !

The emphasis of the ‘Simple way of Love’ is on inner renunciation, inner detachment .

Live in the midst of the world, But be not stained by worldliness.

Live for God. Live with God. Live in God.


The pilgrim of the ‘Simple way of love’ moves along the pathways of Life, singing the song of the Beloved. He spreads the sunshine of Divine Bliss, Joy and Love, all around wherever he goes .

He hates none,

He has malice against none.

He Loves all and gives out Love to every body from his pure radiant heart.

He serves all, with Love in his heart.

His aspirations are : —

‘Lord’, I am wholly Thine, I need Thee, I love Thee,

‘‘Keep me in Thy Service”.

Thus the seeker grows in Divine Blessedness and every cell of his blood is saturated with the Nectar of God’s Grace or ‘NAM,’ which overflows from his radiant personality.”




The process of transition of Soul from — materialistic


to — Intuitional Divine consciousness, is called RELIGION, to enjoy the bliss of Divine Grace and Love is the ultimate goal of RELIGION, to be lost in the infatuating Divine Love is the fulfilment of the individual soul, to be merged in the Ocean of Divinity is the destiny of Soul.

This Universal Religion of Love is :

all-embracing, all-pervading,

vibrating, living,

unchanging, eternal and


Spiritual consciousness of SOUL.

This Transformation of ‘spiritual consciousness’ can only be attained with the grace of the Guru, through : —



guidance, help,



infection, and ignition

of the ‘Sadh Sangat’ i.e., personal company of, and devotion to Awakened, Illuminated, Blessed Souls.

But to come across True Illuminated ‘Sadh Sangat’, is the crucial point in the spiritual life of the aspirant.

There is a surfeit of so-called ‘Sadhus’, Saints’ and self-proclaimed ‘Gurus’ in the world, specially in India, and it is impossible for the aspirant to distinguish or identify real ‘Sadh Sangat’ to guide his soul to its destiny.

So many aspiring souls have been misguided and distracted from the real path of spiritual goal, by these so- called ‘Sadhus and ‘Gurus’.

In fact, real Illuminated Saints or God-Men are rare, and it is impossible for the aspirant to recognise them with his own limited and illusive intelligece.

Each soul is the ‘Ray’ of ‘Divine Sun’, and as such, there is an innate attraction of the soul towards its original source, i.e., ‘GOD’.

This hidden attraction or longing of the soul, for its ‘Divine Source, is over shadowed by wordly consciousness, which can be thinned away or dissolved by Sincere and devotional religious ‘Sadhnas’.

In the degree, this illusive shadow of Maya is removed, the genuine innate attraction, aspiration and Love for Divine Consciousness, is aroused and developed.


At this stage, the aspirant is not satisfied with the outcome of dogmatic, intellectual, conventional religious ‘Sadhnas’, and

desires, aspires,


burns, and


for higher, sublimer, blissful and loving state of consciousness.

It is these aspirations, Iongings, yearning and cries of aspirant, for higher and sublimer experience of Divine Consciousness, which invoke the Grace and Blessings of the LORD, who arrange the introduction of such a yearning soul to genuine ‘Sadh-Sangat’.

To have the privilege and blessings of genuine ‘Sadh Sangat’, is the dispensation of love and Grace of the Lord, in response to the inner aspirations, longings, yearnings and cries of love of the soul.

Once the spiritual aspirant is put on a right path to Divine Consciousness, he can experience the blissful ecstasy of higher and sublimer Divine Vision, under the guidance of genuine ‘Sadh-Sangat’,

‘Religion’ should exude and demonstrate sublime attributes of inner intuitional

awareness, knowledge,

wisdom, experience,


realisation, detachment,

renunciation, peace,

joy, bliss,

devotion, love and


of spiritual state of Divine Consciousness, vibrating through every pore of body, and manifested in all aspects of life.

But we have: —

mis-interpreted, mis-construed,

abused, mis-used,

debased, maligned, and


‘Religion’ in our daily life-pattern or conduct,which is manifested in : —

selfishness, pride,

hatred, jealousy,

greed, strife,



hypocrisy, and violence

through our thoughts and deeds, under the cover of, or in the name of ‘Religion’.

Thus, we, the self-made religious people have unconsciously insinuated an element of : —

doubt, misunderstanding,

misconception, ignorance,

indifference, faithlessness,

hatred, and even allergy

about ‘Religion’ in the minds of the common man !

In fact, we have ourselves denigrated and reduced ‘Religion’ to : —

farce, ridicule,

laughing stock, mockery,

un-necessary, time-wasting,

repelling, blasphemy, and


in our daily life, with little or superfluous faith in subjects of Religion, Spiritualism and God !


The world is madly running headlong into the horrible abyss of materialistic hell, without any hope of ‘return’.

Only Illuminated, Awakened and Blessed Souls i.e., ‘Sadh-Sangat’, can save humanity from this sordid clutches of materialism, and help it in the re-discovery of True Eternal Universal ‘Love Religion’.

The essence of all religions may be summed up into the following practical ‘LIFE-MOTTO’.


The magnatic

DIVINE-PULL-towards the individual

soul is the


and the spontaneous

RESPONSE of the soul

to this Divine pull is the

Devoid of this response—religion

Dry, dreary,

All religious doctrines, theories, dogmas, austerities,

superfluous, shallow,

showy, meaningless,

egoistic, hypocrisy,

farce and

a mockery.




Humble Submission Unto The Readers.

The word ‘Religion’ used to incorporate ‘Universal’ aspect in it, or in other words, a true religion has to be a universal religion. However, just as ‘ghee” today means anything other than pure ghee, unless we used the word ‘pure’ with it (even then we have our doubts), similarly religion today means anything but purity and sublimity ! It is, therefore, but natural for anyone to become allergic to the word ‘religion’, as it hides under its Umbrella, — ‘motives’ and religion has been one major cause of world-wide bloodshed and hatred. Inspite of all this, there is a concept of ‘Universal Religion’ that generates universal brotherhood of mankind, who are elevated to become God-Men. These pure, illuminated, blessed Souls will eventually rule the entire world — thus goes the prophecy.

It is this concept of Universal Religion that Bauji Jaswant Singh Ji ‘Khoji’ is explaining in the pages that follow. In the conclusion, he sums up the essence of all religions in the life motto :


As also explained in Gurbani :


And again,


Renowned Urdu poet Iqbal wrote on religion :


True religion is an art of living and has many facets. Guru Nanak simplified it in ‘naam japo, wand chhako.’ To propagate the message of universal brotherhood, He not only travelled over 50,000 miles across the world, but also lived that way himself, till his last breath. In Japuji, He advised to attune ourselves to His Sweet Will. He similized the devotion of a seeker or bhakta to the love of ‘lotus’ for water :


Guru Arjun has defined the best religion as


According to Guru Teg Bahadur, the essentials of all reli- gions are fulfilled by singing ‘Hari Kirtan’. Guru Gobind Singh declared the Universal Truth of attaining God through ‘sincere love’ :


The disciple is a missionary and a temple of learning, as he is living True Religion. He has always a mission, a yearning to serve others and lead them across the


turbulent sea of life. He, himself, is totally engrossed in the lotus feet of the Lord, his Master, never bothering either for material gains or even salvation. Leaving all ego, he surrenders himself completely to his Master, and thus he attains the status of a ‘BHAGTA.’ Gurbani recommends us to fully depend on such personalities and even to surrender our ‘whole-self’ to them:


‘Universal Religion’ is a ‘Love-gift’ to all seekers by one such Illuminated Soul. By his skill, he effort lessly leads the seeker to the destination. Here is an action plan to enjoy the life of a BHAGTA. Follow it under his guidance.

By the Author

Readers will find that I have not gone into details of conventional religions.

These numerous religions, with their sects and sub- sects, have already been fully described in hair-splitting details, with concrete instructions and directions, in the massive religious literature and scriptures of the world.

Countless libraries, religious institutions and Universities are already imparting and propagating religious knowledge. Some Universities have also instituted Departments or Chairs for the study and research of religions.

In other words, there is no dearth of intellectual knowledge of religion in the world, and everybody seems satisfied and complacent about his or her own religious knowledge.

Some ‘thinkers’ have even deeply studied religions, other than their own.

With the plethora of religious knowledge and literature in the world, it would look superfluous and absurd to make an attempt to write another intellectual treatise about various conventional religions. Apart from this, it will be unwise to open ‘Pandora’s Box’ of religions, when the atmosphere all around, is fully charged with communal strains and emotional elements of:

intolerance, prejudice,


bigotry’ jealousy, pride, hatred, and strife.

I have therefore tried to confine myself to the general and sublimer aspect of religion, and have concentrated on the core or quintessence point-inherent in all religious concepts.

This article is a ‘Love- gift’ to the devoted Aspirants of Spirituality, who are sincerely working in the pursuit of Divinity, but are confused and bogged down in the maze of superfluous, illusive, bewildering, controversial religious ideologies, concepts and beliefs !

This confusion and controversies about religious concepts arise from our intellectual incompetence and ignorance of the spiritual world.

Our limited intelligence can-at best-take us to the outer-courtyard of the Divine Realm, but not beyond that.

The blind man’s knowledge is limited to what he perceives through his outer senses, but cannot grasp the complete and true perception of the world of Light.

Similarly, our intelligence is incompetent to perceive the Immanent Divine Light or to realise the Wonders of the Spiritual World.

The knowledge of the Divine Realm can only be realised by the insight or Consciousness of our Souls, called ‘ Intuition’, which is also called ‘Third eye.


Until and unless this Insight’ or Intuition’ is developed and the soul is blessed with a glimpse of Divine Grace and Light, there are bound to be

differences, controversies,

discord, confrontation, and


amongst-various religions, and between ‘Outer Religion’ and ‘Spiritualism’.

Very few persons take up religion seriously, but even these few are : —

misguided, distracted,

confused, diverted, and

carried away

from the real Essence of Religion, and are bogged down or lost in the maze of conventional religions and their : —

norms and forms, dogmas and creeds,

rites and rituals,

sermons and ceremonies,

logic and theology,

reasoning and philosophies,

superstitious obsessions, obdurate bigotry,

fanatic aberrations, wrong conceptions,

illusive achievements, and hypothetic goals.


Even, if a rare soul outgrows and transcends these outward religious obsessions, and rises to the higher consciousness, it is liable to be distracted and bogged down in some of the following phases of occult plane : —

imaginary hypothetic Visions,

emotional flights of thoughts of the Unseen,

reveries of fanciful notions, playing with psychic powers,

clairvoyance & prophecies, large number of followers,

religious ashrams and institutions, sufferings of ascetic life,

illusory spiritual achievements, niceties of spiritual knowledge,

nothingness of Yogic trances, and ‘mukti’ or salvation from the cycle of

birth & death.

Such souls are so involved and absorbed in the emotional exercises of their occult powers, that they become obsessed with their religious and occult attainments, and become oblivious or ignorant of any higher spiritual vision. All these emotional and imaginary achievements, visions and occult powers are based on egoistic foundation, and revolve around the lower consciousness of ‘I’ and ‘Me’. Hence they belong to the cosmic world and are devoid of the touch of Divine Grace & Light.

In fact, these occult visions and powers are enchanting mirages, in which most of the Yogis are caught and trapped, which prove great hindrance for their further advancement towards the true spiritual goal.


It is therfore obvious, how difficult or impossible it is for an aspiring soul, to overcome by himself, the powerful gravity of ‘Maya’, and to transcend both the religious and occult barriers of distractions and misconceptions.

Only Illuminated & Blessed souls of Divine Vision can guide and introduce the aspiring soul into the higher consciousness of spirituality, to enable him to enjoy the inner experience of Divine Bliss and Grace. This inner intuitional experience of the soul comprise :

1. Intuition of Divine Vision.

2. Vibrating thrill of Divine Touch.

3. Intoxication of Divine Bliss.

4. Infatuation of Celestial Music.

5. Secret and sacred Flame of Divine Light.

6. Ecstasy of Divine Love.

7. Cosy Warmth of Divine Presence.

8. Glory of the Divine Efflorescence.

9. Bewitching & captivating Divine Beauty.

10. Sweet caresses of Celestial Grace.

11. Soothing peace of Celestial Silence.

12. Dancing Joy of Divine Grace.

This is the

true, eternal,

all-embracing, living,

vibrating, practical, and


LUDHIANA 10th May, 1986







HIS ATTRIBUTES, such as :—







JOY, and


are projected and manifested in the Cosmos at differ- ent planes of Cosmic consciousness, (just as the sun- shine is the projection of the SUN).

ACTIVATION and REFLECTION of the prolification and projection of these Divine Attributes and

Qualities is called



pervades, engulfs,

works, and reflects

in, and through every particle of this vast Universe.

The Cosmos is directed and governed by the DIVINE LAW :—

silently, secretly,

subtly, imperceptibly,

punctually, immaculately,

perfectly, and eternally.

The DIVINE WILL or LAW is :—

all-pervading, all-engulfing,

all-intelligence, all-powerful,

omnipresent, and omniscient,

which conditions the existence, and directs the work- ing of every particle of this vast Universe. In other


words, Divine WILL is the sublime, secret, invisible, subtle, benevolent, vibrant ACTIVITY of Divine Power, Grace and Love :—

operating, creating

developing, maintaining,

sustaining, harmonising,

integrating, disintegrating, and


all LIFE in the Cosmos. This secret, infinite and sub- lime process of Divine WILL has been going on so :—

smoothly, perfectly,

efficiently, and regularly

since eternity, with the : silent,

invisible, imperceptible,

incessant, and eternal

flow of DIVINE LIFE CURRENT, independent of any outside help, guidance or interference !

The DIVINE WILL originates in the DIVINE REALM, and transcends to, and operates in the Universe, guided


and governed by the unchanging, inherent, in laid DIVINE LAW.

Each ray inherits and reflects all the qualities of the Sun. Similarly, each ray of projection and activa- tion of the DIVINE WILL reflects all the Divine Quali- ties, such as : —

light, intelligence,

wisdom, kindness,

compassion, benevolence,

abundance, magnanimity,

mercy, love,

bliss, and joy.

There can be no darkness in the presence of light. Similarly, there can be no : —

problem, difficulty,

blunder, ignorance,

sin, unhappiness,

sorrow, misery, or



in the Light of kind, benevolent and loving DIVINE WILL.

There are two distinct and different planes of Cosmic consciousness : —

1. Divine consciousness, and

2. Egoistic consciousness.

All lives of animal, vegetable, metallic and elemental kingdoms are : —

created, maintained,

sustained, and governed

directly by the Divine Will.

They have been granted little or limited intelli- gence — just enough to struggle for their survival.

They unconsciously live, move, act and have their being in the Divine Will — in complete surrender to the Divine Law, which is inherent and in-laid in their souls.

Thus they are not subject to the ‘KARMIC LAW’ i.e., ‘as you sow-so shall you reap’, as they do not think or act with ego- consciousness. They act under compulsion of and in compliance with their natural instinct, which is inherent and in-laid within their ‘gene’ or seed. They have no ‘free’ will to discriminate or make choice.

To understand and grasp this subtle point, some practical and living illustrations may be helpful.


1. When a cat kills a rat, she acts under the compulsion of her instinct, in-laid in her very nature by the Divine Will. She does not act of her own free- will and has unconsciously complied with, and carried out the secret and un-written Divine Will- inherent and in-laid in her soul. She has therefore not committed any ‘sin’, and is not subject to the Karmic Law.

The same secret, silent and un-written principle of the eternal Divine LAW applies to all creatures, in different stages and degrees of their evolution, in the vast Cosmos.

2. In the vegetable kingdom, every plant or tree reflects the silent working of the Divine WILL at dif- ferent stages of its growth, life and destruction, and finally being merged into the original elements of na- ture.

Each seed is in-laid with the ‘Gene’ of its : — variety,

sub-variety, size,

shape, colour,

fragrance, taste,

quality, utility,

potentiality, age, etc.


in different stages of life, i.e., seedling, plant, trunk, branches, leaves, flowers and fruits, and again seeds.

This unconscious surrender and obedience to the Divine WILL qualifies their souls to the higher stages of evolution.

In fact, the vegetable kingdom has no free will of its own to think or act otherwise.

3. The metallic kingdom, made of gross materials- includes the earth, sand, stones, rocks and all metals.

They have no consciousness of their own, and humbly submit to the vagaries of nature, which works directly under the Divine Law.

Their surrender to the Divine WILL is complete and absolute. They are also governed by the natural law of evolution.

4. The elemental kingdom is subtle and power- ful. These elements work in conjunction with, and inter-act on each other, to activate, and manifest vari- ous phenomena of nature, directly under the Divine WILL.

Thus, all particles of the natural kingdoms work : —

in conjunction with each other, inter-act upon each other, modify each other,

generate energy,

to activate, project, manifest and play


the : —

silently, secretly,

unconsciously, and eternally

infinite incessant,

unending, perfect,

meticulous, and regular

DRAMA OF THE DIVINE WILL in the vast Cosmos.

All the natural kingdoms belong to the three dimensional COSMOS, which we know as NATURE.

In fact, the whole COSMOS is an instrument in the Hands of the DIVINE WILL, which works, projects and plays the COSMIC DRAMA in compliance with the DIVINE LAW.



Now, we come to the most complex, diabolical, incomprehensible and mysterious creature, called ‘MAN’.

MAN was made in the image of God, who pro- vided His son with all the necessities and luxuries of life, in abundance, and created ‘EVE’ as his playmate and consort in the heaven of ‘EDEN’ on earth, to live in, and enjoy the blessings of : —




To play a game and make it interesting and enter- taining, two opposite strong teams are essential. Even in democratic institutions, a strong ‘opposition’ is re- quired for efficient and healthy working of democracy.

Similarly, the All-Wise Providence has created an opposite power of ‘Maya’ to : —

1. avoid the boredom of casual routine life,

2. break the monotony of life.


3. make life interesting and entertaining,

4. create the sense of competition,

5. instill the ambition for better life,

6. drive the mind for higher achievements,

7. compete in probing into the mysteries of Nature,

8. experiment the vagaries of ‘Maya’ in all its aspects,

9. search for the Ultimate Goal of Life, i.e., Divinity, and

10. finally, to realise the illusion of ‘Maya’ and attain spiritual illumination.

Darkness has no existence. It is an illusive condi- tion created by the absence of light.

Similarly, ‘Maya’ has no existence, except in our illusive consciousness.

‘Maya’ has no power of its own. It derives its power from lack of our faith in the Divinity.

In other words, the power of ‘Maya’ has its roots in our ‘disbelief’ in God.

‘Darkness’ is the cause of a trail of illusions, mis- understandings, sufferings, miseries, which are spon- taneously obliterated when the ‘light’ comes.

Similarly, the illusion of Maya brings with it a trail of baser elements of : —

ego, selfishness,


lust, greed,

attachment, jealousy,

hatred, strife,

quarrels, wars,

and what not, to make our life so : —

degenerated, unhappy,

frustrated, vicious, and


On the other hand, in the light or sunshine, we are blessed with and enjoy all the attributes and qualities of the Sun.

Similarly, when our soul basks in the Sunshine of Divine Faith and Love of our Beloved Father — God — we partake and enjoy all the Divine blessings of : —

compassion, kindness,

benevolence, tender care,

magnanimity, and above all Love Divine.

It is obvious that in the Divine Scheme of the Cosmic Drama, there are two different, opposite and


contradictory aspects of consciousness of Divinity and illusive ‘Maya’.

These states of consciousness represent the ‘Duality’ of the Nature in every aspect of its manifestation :—

light and

good and

virtue and

love and

selflessness and

happiness and

bliss and

life and

cold and

kindness and

health and

angels and

heaven and














These opposite elements work and exert against each other to render the universal play : —

interesting, entertaining,

colourful, emotional,

dramatic, impressive,

infectious, educative,


corrective, revealing,

emancipating, enlightening, and


for the participating souls, and help them in their search for the ultimate goal of salvation and freedom, through their own gruesome and hard experiences.

It should be remembered that ‘Maya’ exists, works and gains strength in the ‘illusion’ of our consciousness.

Therefore, it is again only in the sphere of our ‘consciousness’, that we can ignore, deny and be free, from the dreadful clutches of this devil — ‘Maya’.

The whole Universe is unconsciously working and obeying the Divine WILL on different planes of consciousness, and gradully working up their evolution under the direction of the Divine Law.

But the story of human beings is different and unique.

God has gifted the human mind with profound intelligence and freedom, so that he can intellectually play higher and subtler Cosmic Drama on finer planes of consciousness, and enact and fulfil the sublimer spiritual aspect of the ‘Divine Drama’.

Somehow, we have come under the spell of illusive ‘Maya’ through our own ignorance and past Karmas, and our consciousness has transcended from the


Divine Realm to the lower plane of ‘self-consciousness’ or ‘ego’.

In this lower consciousness, we are apt to loose faith in God, and forget and ignore HIM. Gradually, under the magical spell of the illusive Maya, we conveniently refuse to : —

understand, grasp,

follow, or obey

the authority of the Divine WILL, and unconsciously, get ‘out of tune’ with the benevolent flow of Divine WILL.

Consequently, we try to : —

modify, pollute,

dilute, substitute, or


the Divine WILL with our own egoistic will, and become subject to the Cosmic Karmic Law.

To illustrate this subtle point, let us take the case of the foetus in the womb of Mother.

Since its inception in the womb — till its birth into the world, the process of its :

nursing, nourishment,



growth, development, and


is wonderfully : —

arranged, supervised, and


by the silent, kind and benevolent Divine WILL, in the tender cosy womb of the Mother, under the tender ‘motherly’ care of Divine Law — without any outside: —

Interference, guidence,

help, intelligence,

scheming, or advice.

This is one of the concrete, practical, wonderful and ‘awe-striking’ miracle of : —

Divine Intelligence, Divine Wisdom,

Divine Benevolence, Divine Love, and

Divine GRACE

After birth, the same tender care and Love of Divine WILL works through the ‘Mother’ — to bring up the innocent baby.


As the intelligence of the baby is developed, it recognises its parents and surroundings, and is influenced by the prevailing environment and surrounding company.

Thus, his innocence is gradually overpowered and replaced by his own ‘self consciousness’, and he starts exhibiting his ‘ego’ through ‘I’, ME and ‘MINE’.

As the child grows up and his intelligence is developed, he asserts his ‘ego’ everywhere, and his arrogance is manifested in all aspects of his life.

In proportion to the development of his ‘Egoistic Consciousness’, he looses belief and faith in Divinity, and becomes arrogant, profane, and aggressive, thereby becoming a complete slave of the illusive ‘Maya’, with the trail of all its vices, and resultant sufferings.

Thus, he deprives himself of all the Divine Blessings of :—

compassion, kindness,

tender care, benevolence,

magnanimity, and LOVE

which he unconsciously enjoyed during his sojourn in and out of the womb.

He forgets that all these Divine Blessings are his own ‘Divine Heritage’ — and are inherent and in- laid in his sublime consciousness, if only he cares,


to realize his Divine Heritage and turn back to his Divine Kingdom !

On the other hand, in our ‘Egoistic Consciousness’, our souls are ‘cut off’, from the benevolent flow of Divine Blessings, and are left to ‘fend for ourselves’, and thereby suffer the consequences of our own thoughts and deeds, in accordance with the cosmic law of Karma, ‘as you sow — so shall you reap’.

It is ironical to think that the ‘Divine Prince’, i.e., human soul has to suffer all the unhappiness and miseries of the materialistic world, just because he failed to : —

remember, understand,

realise, grasp,

believe in, and claim

his Heritage of Divine Kingdom of Love and GRACE. This Divine Kingdom of Love and Grace is already

‘in-laid’ in every soul, and can be realised and enjoyed by : —

inheritance, without claiming,

without earning,

just for the taking,

by His Grace,

where supreme, benevolent, kind, magnanimous, loving


‘Divine WILL’ prevails and works silently—engulfing the whole Universe.

It is unfortunate that the human being, created in the image of God, should be so indoctrinated and illusioned by the magic — spell of the glittering ‘Maya’, as to forget, ignore and deny his Divine Heritage, and deprive himself of the benevolent, loving care and blessings of the Divine WILL !

Thus he becomes a prodigal son.

It is all the more ironical and amusing that, inspite of : —

keen intelligence, high education,

scientific research, numerous religions,

profound philosophies, glut of scriptures,

innumerable doctrines,

surfeit of rituals and rites, and

countless religious teachers,

we, human beings, have not been able to : —

discern, understand,

comprehend, realise,

grasp, recognise,



neutralise, expose, and


the influence and spell of false ‘egoistic illusion’ !

In fact, the ‘Maya’ has made use of our intelligence and emotions to run its own empire, to our detriment and misery.

To differentiate and clarify the working of the Divine WILL in various aspects of Nature, let us take the illustration of Rose.

From : 1.



the seedling, to the plant.

the budding, to the full-blooming Rose,

final withering and annihilation,

a golden thread of Divine ‘Life-current’ flows into every fibre of its existence, to : —

develop, nourish, and


the plant, and to bestow the Rose with : —

fragrance, colouring,

beauty, tenderness,

exquisiteness, and charm

under the invisible and secret supervision and blessings of the benevolent Divine WILL.



Heat, light and energy etc. are attributes of the sun-shine.


Divine intelligence, Divine Wisdom,

Divine Benevolence, Divine WILL,

Divine Law,

Divine GRACE, etc.

are attributes of the Divine LIFE-CURRENT, called ‘WORD’, ‘LOGOS’ or ‘NAM’.

The sublime process of Divine WILL is so perfect, complete and meticulous that no outside interference or guidance is needed.

None of the creatures (except human beings) have enough intelligence and freedom to interfere in the working process of the cosmos, which is directly governed by the Divine Law.

Human being is made in the image of God — and is bestowed with profound intelligence and freedom


of thoughts and deeds. This Divine Gift of intelligence and freedom was granted to the man, so that he could rediscover his Divine-SELF and his Divine Heritage, with the help and guidance of Awakened and illuminated Souls.

But unfortunately, man has been mis-using and abusing these gifts of intelligence and freedom in pursuit of baser elements of ‘Maya’, and has become slave of the glittering magic of illusive ‘Maya’ — to his own detriment, and consequent life-long sufferings of unhappiness and misery.

God has bestowed so many precious Gifts on ‘MAN’ — such as : —

It is their

intelligence, energy,


freedom, etc. etc.


that makes or mars the life of man, and brings happiness or misery into the world.

If these Divine Gifts are used ‘in-conjunction’, and ‘in-tune’ with the Divine WILL, we are spontaneously blessed with all the Divine virtues, such as : —

kindness, compassion,


peace, faith,

devotion, love,

bliss, and joy.

When we manifest and reflect these Divine virtues in our lives, the environment around us is transformed, and we live in, and enjoy : —

a better, holier,

freer, joyful,

blissful, loving,

graceful, real, and


sublime world in the kingdom of God.

On the other hand when we forget or disown our Divine Heritage, we are influenced by the glittering and ilusive spell of ‘Maya’, and become slaves of our senses, with a long trail of ‘satanic’ vices, such as : —

selfishness, pride,

arrogance, jealousy,



anger, lust,

greed, strife,


and what not, making our own life, and the world around us : —

frustrated, unhappy,

discontented, sorrowful,

miserable, horrible, and

hellish !

The crucial point for the man is the correct use of God's Gift of ‘free choice’, for which we have to develop a sense of :

understanding, comprehension, identification,

insight, and discrimination.

between : —

1. Materialistic world of illusive ‘Maya’ based

on ‘ego’ — consciousness,


2. ‘Divine Kingdom’ — where Divine WILL and Divine LAW prevail.


In this connection, it would be interesting and instructive to study the following comparative chart :

Materialistic World

Egoistic consciousness Ego-centric

Limited intelligence Myopic wisdom Selfishness




Borrowed power Fleeting pleasure Unhappiness Malice

Wrong Falsehood Vice Frustration Misery

‘I’, ‘Me’ & ‘Mine’ Karmic Law Maya


Divine Kingdom

Divine consciousness Divine WILL All-intelligence All-wisdom Selflessness


Tolerance Charity Absolute power Infinite Bliss Infinite Joy Compassion Right





‘Thou’ and ‘Thine’ Divine Grace



It is all a matter of change or transformation of our consciousness — from — egoistic conception, to — benevolent, kind, loving Divine Consciousness.

Even so, our choice is conditioned and inhibited by the instinct of our sub-conscious mind, and also


prevailing environment and the company we keep with.

Deep rooted instinct or propensities cannot be changed overnight, but it is possible to change ‘surroundings’ and ‘company’, if we sincerely desire and opt for a better and sublimer life of Divine Consciousness.

Influence of our contact with and company of the surrounding world plays a great role in changing and shaping our thoughts, beliefs or consciousness, which form the basis of our good or bad lives. In other words, the ‘company’ we keep can make or mar the fate and destiny of our lives.

This illusion or misconception of our false ego is engendered in our mental consciousness through baneful ‘company’ of un-Godly elements of ‘Maya’.

Therefore, it is obvious that a sublimer ‘company’ or ‘sadh sangat’ is necessary to change or transform our egoistic consciousness.

If cultivated and powerful mind can influence the ordinary mind so deeply on the mental plane, Illuminated and Enlightened Souls can also awaken, inspire and ignite the aspiring souls, and usher them into the subtle intuitional plane of Divine Consciousness.

Hence it is beyond the grasp of intellectual understanding. It can only be realised by inner experience of Divine Attributes-such as JOY, BLISS and LOVE — in the depth of our souls.


The inner experience of the Soul is called ‘Intuition’ or ‘Divine Consciousness’.

This ‘INTUITION’ is the only means of contact or ‘communion’ between Man and God.

It is through ‘intuition’ that humanity can realise Divinity and experience all the Divine attributes of :

Divine WILL, Divine LAW,

Divine JOY,


Divine BENEVOLENCE, Divine LOVE, and

Divine GRACE.

In other words, ‘Intuition’ is the means of TRANSITION.

FROM: intellectualknowledgeofouterexperience of mind,

TO: inner experience of the SOUL, i.e., consciousness of Divinity.

This transition or transformation of consciousness can be attained by turning our thoughts and minds inwards — by concentration and meditation with intense devotion.

In this difficult, subtle and sublime process of transformation of mind to the exalted state of Divine Consciousness,

contact, company,


help, guidance,

inspiration, and blessings

of Enlightened Souls — is imperative and essential. Unless and until our ‘Intuition’ or Divine

Consciousness is awakened and developed, all our thoughts, motivation and actions are liable to be : —

mis-guided, mis-directed,

mis-conceived, wrong, and even


leading us to the un-ending trail of sufferings, making our lives miserable here and hereafter !



There is another pertinent point about the Divine WILL — which is most misunderstood, misconceived and misquoted.

To make this fine and sublime point more comprehensive, the example of electricity and its gadgets may be illustrative.

Electricity is generated in a Power House and transmitted and distributed through different kinds of gadgets. The same electricity enlightens bulbs of different colours, shapes, sizes and wattage. We know that electricity is the life and light of the bulb, and the filament is only an instrument for the manifestation of the invisible current, and the outer ‘bulb’ is only a glass cover.

It would sound so absurd on the part of the bulb to claim and boast that it is the master or giver of the light! That would be tantamount to false and gross illusion of ego on the part of the bulb !

Precisely, the Divine Life Current working through us, is the gift of God, and we are all different instruments for manifestation and working of His ‘Cosmic Drama’ and for the projection of His Divine WILL.


Although we human beings have been gifted with freedom of thought and action, yet we are under the overall canopy of His Divine WILL and Grace.

So long as we think and act with the sense of ‘I’, ‘Me’ and ‘Mine’, we are living in ego-consciousness, and become subject to the ‘Karmic Law.’

It is a blasphemy to project our egoistic thoughts and actions as ‘God's Will’ and try to absolve ourselves of our egoistic omissions and sins !

All our thoughts and actions, motivated and projected with the expressions of ‘I’, ‘Me’ and ‘Mine’ belong, to and should be relegated to the ‘egoistic plane’ of the materialistic world.

In fact, such egoistic thoughts and actions are : —

opposite, contrary,

‘out-of-tune’, antithesis,

disobedience, ignorance,

misconception and miscarriage

of the ‘Divine Will’, and carry with them the seeds of ‘Karmic Law’, with consequent sufferings and degeneration of humanity.

When our intuition or Divine consciousness is awakened with : —

concentration, meditation,


devotion, inspiration,

sadh-sangat, and Grace of the Guru,

our ignorance and illusion about : —

‘I’, ‘Me’ and ‘Mine’, egoistic conception,


materialistic world, and


is removed and eliminated.

Our soul is then enlightened and reborn in the

‘Divine Consciousness’.

Thus, our soul comes face-to-face with Divinity, and we enjoy inner experience of : —

Divine Presence, Divine Will,

Divine Bliss,

Divine Love, and

Divine Grace.

In this exalted state of Divine Consciousness, we realise that we are only instruments of His Divine Will, and all our thoughts and actions are : —

motivated, oriented,

coloured, projected,


guided, directed,

supervised, and governed

by the Infinite ‘Divine Law’ — Just as in the case of all other creatures of the Cosmos; and thereby we become free from the consequences of our thoughts and deeds.

Thus we become Free Children of God and spontaneously acquire and enjoy our Herigate of : —

Divine Presence, Divine Peace,

Divine Kindness, Divine Benevolence,

Divine Magnificence, Divine Grace, and

Divine Glory.

It must be clearly understood that no amout of intellectual : —

understanding, learning,

research, discussions,

excursions, theorizing,



or profession of : —

dogmatic religions, rites and rituals,

austerities, offerings,

dedication, renunciation, and


can be of any avail in the realization of ‘Divine Consciousness’ of the Glory of God, and other Divine Attributes of the Kingdom of God.

Our intelligence can, at best, take us to the outer- courtyard of the Divine Realm, but not beyond that.

The Glory of Divinity is so : —

awe-striking, infatuating,

bewitching, intoxicating, and


that human intellectual senses get stunned and lost in the bliss and joy of the effulgent and all-engulfing Grace and Love of the Divine Presence !



The difference between other creatures of the Universe and ‘Man’ is that :

1. Man is made in the image of God.

2. Man has been bestowed with higher intelligence

and finer perception.

3. Man has been granted freedom of thought

and action.

4. But he has misused this freedom for his selfish aggrandizement.

5. Man

6. Man

7. Man

is assigned to play finer and sublimer part in the Universal Drama.

being self-centred, is apt to forget and deny his Father, ‘God’.

being vain and whimsical, is more amenable to the influence of ‘Maya’.

8. Man being Ego-centric, is prone to assert his ‘ego’ through ‘I’, ‘Me’ and ‘Mine’.

9. Man consciously forgets or willfully neglects his higher Divine Assignment.


10.Man thinks and acts with his ‘Ego Consciousness’.

11. Man is subject to the Cosmic ‘Law of Karma’, and thereby suffers the consequences of his egoistic deeds.

12. Thereby, Man loses the last and the best chance of his spiritual evolution and emancipation.

13. Man deprives himself of the Divine Heritage of Kingdom of God.

14. Man denies himself his right of partaking and enjoying the Divine Gifts of Joy.

15. Man pertinently ignores the dictates of inner voice of his soul.

16. Man has the audacity to play ‘dual game’ of serving two masters, i.e., God and Demon! in that he is sincere and honest to none !

17. Man's profession of religion is superfluous and showy, and he has no intention or will to follow the instructions of religious scriptures and teachers.

18. Man is playing ruse with his own soul and Divinity !

19. Under the magical spell of ‘Maya’, Man has become so profane, whimsical, degenerated, corrupt, frustrated, confused


and lost in the quagmire of materialistic world, that he is unable to understand and discriminate between :

right and wrong, good and bad, virtue and vice, God and Maya Heaven and Hell.

20. Manissooccupiedandengrossedinthepursuit of baser elements of Maya that he has no time or will to think and aspire for higher human qualities.

21. The mind of Man is so frittered and scattered in the self-created exigencies of materialistic world that it is impossible to concentrate his mind on higher and sublimer thoughts.

22. By deliberately ignoring and forgeting the higher and finer Cosmic assignment allotted to him, man interrupts the smooth flow of the Divine Will and obstructs the Cosmic Programme.

23. Other creatures of the Universe just cannot ignore or disobey the dictates of their inner instincts. Therefore, they are naturally and unconsciously working “in-tune” with the Divine Will; thus, they work for upward evolution of their souls.


24. Being sincere and honest to their “inner dictates”, they are saved from the clutches and slavery of the Demon of ‘Maya’ and the implication of Karmic Law.

25. Since their thoughts and deeds are governed by the Divine Will — reflected in their ‘instincts’, they are free from all baser elements of Egoistic Consciousness and consequent sufferings and miseries, from which the higher species of man suffer.

26. Other creatures are unconsciously carrying on their cosmic assignments, and are working for the fulfilment of the ‘Cosmic programme’.

27. All creatures (except man) have one Universal Common Religion of total surrender and allegiance to their ‘inner instinct’, which they follow unconsciously. This universal religion is ‘inherent and in-laid’ in each species of creation, and requires no outside preaching.

In contrast, mankind professes various religions, which are imposed from outside and conflict in their dogmas, beliefs, rituals and rites.



The predominant attribute of the Sun is heat.

Similarly, God's attributes are innumerable, amongst which Providential Love runs through all other Divine Qualities of : —

attraction, light,

intelligence, energy,

power, etc.

This attraction or Divine Love : —

permeates, projects,

manifests, and reflects

in every aspect of the Cosmos.

There is a Universal Law of ‘Like attracts like’.

This is reflected and projected in the Cosmos as : — attraction,

affection, devotion, and



This is illustrated in various processes of manifestation and projection of the Cosmos.

For example, water of ocean evaporates with the heat of the Sun. These vapours change into various forms of clouds, rain, snow, rivulets, streams and rivers and finally merge into its original source of Ocean.

The same attraction or ‘Pull’ is reflected in the lives of billions of stars and planets in the ‘Space’, which move and revolve around one another at precise speed and with meticulous punctuality.

This universal attraction or ‘pull’ engulfs, works, governs and conditions the whole wonderful process of Cosmic Drama, just as ‘Motherly’ love reflects in all her physical, mental and emotional activities.

All souls are projection and constituent of Divinity. Hence under the Universal Law of ‘Like attracts like’, all souls have natural ‘pull’ towards each other at the spiritual plane, and also towards their ‘Mother-soul’i.e., God.

This inherent and ‘in-laid’ attraction or ‘pull’ of the souls is called ‘Divine Love’, which permeates, engulfs and conditions all Divine Activities of :

Divine Will, Divine Law,

Divine Kindness, Divine Benevolence,

Divine Providence, Divine Magnificence,


Divine Bliss, and Divine Mercy.

As we fly into the sky, the pull of gravity of the earth is weakened and diminished.

When we enter into the gravity of another planet, the pull of that planet is increased.

The ‘pull’ of the Magnet is conditioned by the rust covering the iron. The more the iron is rusted, the lesser the ‘pull’. This means that the rusty iron is not receptive to the ‘Magnetic-pull’.

Similarly, when our faith and devotion towards Divinity is weakened and diminished by the rust of egoistic consciousness, the pull of ‘Divine Love’ towards us, is proportionately weakened and diminished. Consequently, we become more amenable to the Gravity of ‘Maya’. Thereby, we become subject to the ‘Karmic Law’, and suffer all the consequences of our thoughts and deeds. In addition, we also deprive ourselves of the Divine Love, Blessings and Grace of Realm.

It must be remembered that there are two different and distinct planes of the Cosmos : —

1. Egoistic plane of ‘Maya’.

2. Spiritual plane of ‘Divinity’.

In our ignorance and with our limited intelligence, we often : —

misunderstand, misinterpret,


misconceive, and confuse

the working of these planes.

The subtle process of change or transition of our ‘awareness’ or ‘consciousness’ is wrought in our mental and spiritual planes.

In other words, this ‘transition’ takes place : —

From : — The intellectual plane of ‘egoistic consciousness’,

To : — The ‘Intuitional Consciousness’ of Divinity.

‘Egoistic’ awareness is the outer experience of the mind on the intellectual and emotional planes of ‘Maya’.

‘Intuitional Consciousness’ is the inner experience of the soul on the spiritual plane of Divinity.

We are apt to misunderstand and confuse our ‘human- will’ with ‘Divine Will’ Therefore, it is essential that this ‘confusion’ should be clarified and removed, to avoid wrong conception and mis-interpretation of our ‘own will’.

All thoughts, desires, actions and emotions, which reflect our selfish egoistic consciousness, are subject to the ‘Karmic Law’.

‘Maya’ and its ‘egoistic’ illusion is also the projection and creation of God-to run and govern the ‘dual’ cosmic Drama and derives its powers from the Divine realm.


Hence the egoistic illusion of ‘Maya’ works under the overall canopy of Divine Will, but God does not intervene in the mundane affairs of man. Man has been bestowed with ‘freedom’ of thought and action, and normally God does not interfere in this ‘freedom’, until and unless His Help and Mercy is invoked and sought.

Egoistic man is ‘left to fend for himself’ in the dual cosmic world, under the Universal ‘Law of Karma’, i.e., ‘As you sow, so shall you reap’.

When a soul is awakened from the illusive ‘world- consciousness’, it is transformed into Intuitional ‘Divine- Consciousness’. His own will is blended and merged into the Divine Will. All his thoughts, desires, actions and emotions etc., reflect the Divine Will and Divine Law. He then acts, moves and has his being in the spiritual plane and lives the Presence of Divine Grace and Glory.

It is a pleasure to work in harmony with the sweet Divine Will. He simply cannot use his own Will !

To make this point more comprehensive, following illustrations may be helpful.

When water of a rivulet joins a river and merges into it, it starts running in conjunction and ‘in tune’ with the stronger flow of the river, and acquires the full force of the ‘River-flow’.

On the other hand, when some amount of water is separated from, and gets out-of tune with the mainstream,


it looses the force and direction of the mainstream.

Similarly, when our own egoistic will is conjoined and merged into the Divine Will and works ‘in- conjunction’ and ‘in-tune’ with the flow of Divine Will, we spontaneously acquire all the powers and qualities of Divinity.

On the other hand, when our mind is illusioned by egoistic consciousness, and our faith and devotion for Divinity is weakened or diminished, the flow of our ‘lifecurrent’ gets ‘out-of-tune’ with the Divine Will. Thereby, we deprive ourselves of our spiritual Heritage of Divine Qualities, and become slaves of ‘Maya’.



Having studied the two dual facets of the Cosmic Life, it is for us, the human beings, to take advantage of God — given freedom of thought and action, and to discriminate and choose for ourselves between : —

1. baser egoistic life of ‘Maya’ with its long trail of sufferings and miseries,


2. Higher Spiritual Life with Divine Gifts of kindness, joy, bliss, Love and Grace.

Both aspects of life are depicted in the following table for ready reference :

For this change or transformation : — From : Egoistic Consciousness, To : Spiritual Consciousness,

no change of place, religion, country or occupation is involved.

It is only a matter of change : —


As stated earlier, only three things are essential for this crucial transformation :




But the

crux of the whole matter is :




on our part for this ‘Spiritual transformation’.

With the exception of human beings, all other

countless creatures live and act under the impulsion and compulsion of their individual intrinsic instincts. The instincts are their natural inherent ‘religions’, which they unconsciously obey, and follow sincerely and honestly. They need no outside religion, nor dogmas and philosophies ! They simply cannot think or act otherwise. Therefore, these creatures are unconsciously, but surely working for the upward evolution or emancipation of their souls.

The plight of the human soul is tragic and pitiable. Having misconceived and abused the Divine Gift of Freedom of thought and action, human being has become:

indifferent, doubtful,



forgetful, and unconscious

of his own Divine Heritage, and has been : — entertaining,

cultivating, feeding,

nourishing, developing,

sustaining, projecting,

glorifying, magnifying, and


of his false ‘Ego’, through and ‘Mine’ in countless past

This false sense of

absorbed into our very being, and we have become : —


This false conception of ‘ego’ has become such :

strong, deep,

unshakable, and uncompromising

faith and conviction with us—that we have been: —

justifying, glorifying,

the idea and conception the expression of ‘I’, ‘Me’ lives!

‘ego’ has permeated and


magnifying, advertising,

institutionalising, legalising and


it in our daily life — to unlimited horizons of intellectual, emotional and physical planes !

Our egoistic consciousness has :

percolated, permeated,

absorbed, and saturated

into the very fibres of our lives, and has become our ‘second nature’ : so much so, that we have become: —

to : —

indifferent, disinterested,

reluctant or averse

think, listen,

entertain, or believe

in anything inconsistent to our ingrained and established egoistic conception of ‘I’ and ‘Me’.


This egoistic sense has even : —

infiltrated, permeated,

degenerated, and has been misinterpreted,

in the conception and profession of so-called Religions — so as to suit our own materialistic designs and conveniences; thereby making the practice of Religion : —

superfluous, ritualistic, showy,

self-deceiving, hypocritical and

farce !

With such an illusive sense of ‘egoistic consciousness’, prevailing and dominating in every fibre of human life, we — knowingly or unknowingly — live DUAL or TRIPLE facets of life.

And the dilemma becomes all the more painful and tragic, when we approach religion with such dual hypocritical mind.

Thus, we have degenerated religion into mockery and blasphemy.

In such a degenerated environment of egoistic consciousness, it is RARE to find a sincere soul,


aspiring for Divinity, with :

interest, faith,


resolution, and

priority of choice.

Our present state of mental and spiritual condition is the cumulative result of our past thoughts and karmas, spread over innumerable former lives — plus those of present life.

Therefore, it is imperative that long periods-covering many lives-may be necessary to : —

1. neutralise the pernicious effect of our past karmas,

2. modify, change and transform our consciousness, and

3. create and develop : —

keen interest, aspiration,

strong resolution, devotion,

faith, and priority

for the ‘Spiritual Science’ of the SOUL.

This task of transformation of consciousness become

all the more arduous, tedious and slow in the depraved atmosphere prevailing in the present degenerated materialistic world.


It is really an uphill task to face and work against the vicious circle of established beliefs and convictions concerning our social and religious obligations.

Gurus, Avtars and illuminated Souls have been warning the people against this exploitation of hypocritic religions and spiritualism.

But our ‘egoistic consciousness’ is so deep, insidious and pernicious — that we are easily influenced and allured by the glittering ‘Maya’, and are liable to slip back again and again, into the dreadful materialistic quagmire.

All scriptures have been extolling that the simple way to change and transform our materialistic mentality to ‘Divine Consciousness’ is : —

1. Sublime company of illuminated Souls, i.e., Sadh-Sangat.

2. Meditation,

3. Unselfish Service.

4. Guru's Grace.

But the final choice lies with us, whether : —

1. We are satisfied and contented with our present materialistic life — with all its sorrows, sufferings and miseries,


2. We desire to change for a better, sublimer, joyful, blissful, Divine Life, under the kind, benevolent and loving Divine WILL.


In spite of all the exhortations of religious and spiritual teachers and their innumerable writings, we consciously or unconsciously, have been habitually : —

indifferent, uninterested,

forgetful, unconcerned, and


of these sublime teachings, to our own detriment.

In a nutshell : —

is the : —


activation, execution,

of the DIVINE LAW.

If we think, act and live : —

expression, projection,

prolification, fulfilment, and

in conjunction, and

in tune



with the Divine WILL, we are blessed with all the Divine attributes of

joy, bliss,

kindness, benevolence,

mercy, love,

Grace, etc.

In addition, we are saved from the baneful clutches of Maya — with all its long trail of : —

egoistic illusion, materialistic conception,

unhappiness, sorrow,

worries, sufferings,

miseries, and Karmic Law

in this life as well as the life hereafter.

In the obedience of Divine WILL, we also work our assigned part in the Cosmic Drama — towards the overall fulfilment of the Divine LAW — just as, all other creatures do unconsciously.




By the Author

The expression and manifestation of Divine WILL in the Cosmos is also called ‘NATURE’.

This Nature-in its working : —

extends, projects, and


to opposite extremes of : —

Similies Agreement Harmony Affinity Silence Tenderness Common Subtle


Soft Depth Horizontal Life

versus versus versus versus versus versus versus versus versus versus versus versus versus

variation opposition contradiction hostility thunder coarseness secret

gross thick hard height vertical death


Virtue Kindness Compassion Heaven Good


versus hatred versus vice versus cruelty versus malice versus hell versus bad versus MAYA

All creatures of Nature possess limited intelligence and freedom-just enough to struggle for their survival but the basic elements of their lives are governed by their in-laid instincts, which reflect the Divine WILL.

But human being is blessed with profound intelligence and freedom. Hence only human beings are involved in these extremes.

Amongst these extremes- ‘ego consciousness’ is the most important and basic element, around which man's life revolves.

Man is so obsessed with and possessed by the sense of his ‘ego’ that he is unable to think or act beyond his egoistic consciousness of ‘I’, ‘Me’ and ‘Mine’.

In other words, he is under the spell of egoistic ‘ghost’ — which will not allow him to think or act otherwise !

This ‘egoistic consciousness’ cannot just be ignored, denied or eliminated by our wishful thinking — as, such fanciful ideas and hypothetic philosophies carry within themselves the seeds of egoistic consciousness.


Therefore the easiest way for this transformation is to divert or substitute our thoughts, to sublimer consciousness of ‘God-head’ or ‘NAM’ or ‘SHABAD’.

In this important and sublime process of transformation, guidance and company of Illuminated and Enlightened souls is very helpful and essential.

The expression and execution of the DIVINE WILL in the Cosmos works in ineffable form of ‘Divine Music’.

This ‘Celestial Music’ is : —

secret, sacred,

sweet, melodious,

harmonious, subtle,

exquisite, vibrating,

thrilling, heart-rending,

charming, infatuating,

intoxicating, and ecstatic

The symphony of this Celestial Music is being played through the core of every particle of the Cosmos : —

Continuously, without break, eternally,


without instruments, without concert, and without orchestra,

But human ‘ears’ cannot hear,

sense, realise, and


this Celestial Music, because it is beyond the grasp of human :

intelligence, understanding,

rationale learning,

philosophy, and hypothesis.

The Divine symphony can only be : —


experienced, and


by our souls through :

1. Meditation.

2. Third EAR or ‘Divine intuition’.

3. Guru's Grace.

When mind is concentrated and turned inwards by meditation, it is ushered into the Divine Realm by the Grace of Guru, and ‘Intuitional consciousness is awakened and developed’.


Thus the Third Intuitional EAR is awakened to hear, experience and enjoy the sweet melodious Divine symphony within the soul.

The soul is so charmed and exhilarated with every

exquisite note, thrilling tune and

Celestial song

of the Divine symphony ryhthem that it is exalted and infatuated to dance to the tune of the Divine Music.

In this infatuating and ecstatic state of consciousness, mind is so overwhelmed and infatuated by sweet, blissful Divine symphony-that it is unable to think or act with his own individual will, and is spontaneously TUNED to the DIVINE WILL, and works in conjunction with the DIVINE LAW.

Even a faint ‘intuitional experience’ of the celestial Music can so charm and infatuate the soul, that the mind is ushered at once into the Divine Realm and is transmuted into an ‘instrument’ of the Eternal Divine Music.

In other words, our mind must be : —

influenced, inspired,

re-oriented, grafted,

exalted, infatuated,

intoxicated, and magnetized


by the Divine Music to become an ‘instrument’ of the Divine symphony and to act in-tune with the Divine WILL.

When our soul is awakened and illuminated with the Divine NAM, it

Like the fragrance emanating from flower, our soul spontaneously emanates and reflects the Divine attributes of joy, peace, Bliss and Love.

The spiritual LIFE of such a blessed soul constitutes and reflects : —

1. Intuitional experience of Divine ‘Life Current’ i.e., NAM.

2. Enjoying vibrating thrill of effortless, spontaneous inner Meditation.


3. Ecstasy in the Divine BLISS OF NAM.

4. Exhilaration of the exquisite sweet melodious

symphony of Eternal Divine Music.

5. Intoxication in the rapturous bliss of captivating Divine LOVE.

6. Infatuation of ravishing and bewitching Divine BEAUTY.

7. Breathing, moving, living and having our being, in the Divine GRACE.

8. Unconsciously emanating the fragrance of God's GRACE.

9. Becoming an ‘instrument’ for the projection, manifestation and working of Divine WILL.

10. Basking in the cosy warmth of Divine Sunshine of NAM.

11. Living with every breath — the True, Vibrating, Thrilling, Eternal, Universal LIVING Religion.

12. Un-knowingly reflecting and glorifying the infinite Grace and Greatness of the LORD.
