“It’s so great for a human being to explore the spiritual dimension of which most of the human beings are unaware of. Therefore the life of most human beings is like having an airplane without wings, which they drive as a tractor. The only thing what most of the people are aware of their physical body, their senses and their thinking process, which is so disturbing for most of the people. They don’t know anything about what is beyond this physical body and the mind. So if one has the good luck to becoming involved, feeling the need for something higher, coming on a spiritual path, meet a Master and initiated and do once spiritual practice, it is such a great added element to life!”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“After coming in this world Master tells us to catch hold of three things: one is Satsang; one is meditation on true Naam; and the other is the Master – because only a perfect Master can give you the perfect Naam.

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“So we should maintain love and devotion for the Master. You should have faith in the Master. It is very important if you want to progress on the Path. Master Sawan Singh Ji used to say, “If you are not able to do anything else, at least have respectful love for the Master. Because if you do all that He says, and if your love for the Master is more than for the world, you will definitely go to the place from where your Master is coming, and you will definitely go to the place where your Master is going.” Where does the Master go? Master goes to His Master, because He is always loving His Master. That is why if you are having love for the Master, you will definitely go to Almighty Lord. Unless we have love for the Master, we cannot get rid of the love for the world. The love for the Master is the only means of developing love and devotion for Almighty Lord.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“The basic principle of a highly serene life is to accept the divine dispensation with cheer as it is chiefly based on the reactions of our own actions and is invariably flavored with mercy for our eventual betterment.

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“No matter if you don’t believe in the heat of the fire, but still when you come near the fire, you will definitely experience the heat of the fire. In the same way, even if you don’t understand the meaning of Master’s putting His hands on you, or if you don’t even believe in Him, but still, when He puts His hand on your body or on your shoulders, it means a lot. The disciple on whom the Master is putting His hand or whom Master is patting, gets a lot of benefit from the touch of the Master. Generally the souls understand this as a very ordinary thing. When Master puts His hand out, when Master pats Him, that soul doesn’t understand its real meaning.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“The soul is a prisoner and the Master is the liberator and He works to that end day and night for the benefit of the initiates. The Master’s blessings are always assured in overflowing degrees to the initiates. He wants them to progress within in the least possible time and is happy to see them progress.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“Who would give us the good advice? Who would put us back onto the true Path if we have forgotten or have lost the Path? Who would put us back on that Path? Only He who has sympathy with us, only He who is our true friend. Our enemy will never give us good advice; he will never put us back on the Path. And our mind is our enemy. Can we expect him to sympathize with us? Can we expect him to give us good advice? Master is the only one who has good wishes for us and who is sympathetic to us and He is the only one who would give us good advice and the only one who would put us back on the Path.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“It is difficult to control your senses, to rise above body consciousness, to keep thoughts pure and not to think ill of others. If we accomplish these things, it is not difficult to realize God.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“The holy meditation should not be a mechanical routine of just sitting for a certain time but it should be of loving devotion dyed in reverential humility when you stand begging at the divine door of the Lord.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“So long as we do not sacrifice that to which we are most attached, at the altar of God’s love, we cannot obtain salvation.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

„Until the Shabd is manifested in our within, we cannot be completely patient and we cannot be content in the Will of God. Because until the Shabd has manifested in our within, we may pretend to be patient and we may pretend to be happy, content, and pleased in the Will of God, but because of our mind, we cannot be sure that we are always patient and that we are always happy in the Will of God. Because mind will deceive you someday. That is why unless we manifest the Shabd in our within, we cannot remain content in the Will of God.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“We must reform ourselves before we can reform others, but unfortunately we are always anxious to reform others.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“There is no doubt we are weak and have neither faith nor love, but there is also one hope to sustain us – that he may take pity on us and forgive our sins. We have taken refuge at his holy feet and, deservedly or undeservedly, we are his children.”

— Hazur Baba Sawan Singh Ji

“In order to cross over this ocean of life, and in order to remove all the diseases, all the pains which we have, especially the pain or the disease of birth and death, the Naam of the perfect Master is the only medicine. It works like an herb which renews life – it gives you the life again.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh
