“It’s important to acquire knowledge about reality, about how this life works, acquire the right knowledge about the functioning of the universe. But if just acquiring knowledge is the only thing that we do then we stay dry! We don’t know the beauty of love, of falling in love with God! “

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Which souls are the most fortunate ones in this world? Which are the most lucky souls in this world? Only those, who after getting the human birth come to the Master and always dwell with the Master. The meaning of “dwelling with the Master” is that when you come to the Master to get the Initiation from Him, the Master is residing within you in the form of the Shabd, and those who do the meditation according to the commandments of the Master, always remain with the Master; they always feel the presence of the Master. Those who do this know how the Master does not leave them even for a moment, the Master is always present with the disciple, just like his shadow. And those who really dwell with the Master know what the relationship between the disciple and the Master is. The relationship between the disciple and the Master is very deep, very concrete. As the shadow never leaves the body, in the same way, the Master never leaves the disciple.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“You should not have any clutching tendency to have one thing or the other. Simply sit at the door and wait. This sublime silence is best and easily achieved by lovingly and humbly reposing in the gracious Master-Power, to grant and bless you with whatever it deems fit.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“God Himself does everything. He Himself plans for all the souls. He knows which souls are ready for liberation and which souls must come in His contact. That is why we should always devote ourselves in the meditation of that God, and why we should always worship Him. Whatever is happening is happening in the Will of God, because everything is in His Will, and He Himself has kept all things in His hands.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“Unless we develop that real love for the Master, we are like a toy in the hands of all these five dacoits. Sometimes lust is bothering us, sometimes we are bothered by anger, egoism, greed, and attachment. Unless we develop that real love and yearning for the Master, all these things keep bothering us. But when the love for the Master is manifested within us, then all these things fly out from our within us and do not bother us anymore. When the eagle of love comes in our within, the small birds of passions fly away because they cannot stand that real love for the Master.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“You may well ask why there is this insistent stress on complete self-surrender on the mystic path. The answer is simple: without this absolute surrender of the last vestiges of ego and selfhood and without such complete absorption in the object of one’s love, one cannot attain that unwavering concentration of all one’s faculties which is the prerequisite of all inner progress.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“If we do Simran, we put a break to the endless thoughts thus we create a bridge by which we may transcend or ascend from the human to the Divine.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“In all trying circumstances, prayer is the last weapon in our armory. Where all human efforts fail, prayer succeeds.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“We should always do our meditation and never listen to our mind. Mind is our only enemy and he will never let us become faithful to the Master, and he will never let us do the meditation. That is why we should never listen to him, we should always listen to the words of the Satguru, and we should always do the meditation. Regarding the deceptions of the mind, I have said this many times: that after meditating for sixteen or seventeen years, once I came out from the underground room, and my mind told me, “You have been sitting so long without getting anything.” But at once I got another inner sound. “You should not lose your enthusiasm; go back to your room and do the meditation.” And again I went into the meditation room and started doing my meditation, and I realized how the mind was trying to deceive me at that time. So you can never rely on the mind; you can never know when the mind is going to come and deceive you. That is why the only way to escape from the deception of the mind is constant meditation, which we should always do.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“You must guard, too, against certain small desires which are common in daily life. Never wish to think, or to appear clever; have no desire to speak. It is well to speak little; better still to say nothing, unless you are quite sure that what you wish to say is quite true, kind, and helpful.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“One’s whole life can be changed with meditation and love for the Guru. The Guru will then appear within.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“If man can control the dim hours from sunset to sunrise, he becomes a true human being. But instead we eat, drink, enjoy the worldly pleasures until midnight, and then snore the rest of the night away.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“The efforts of the disciple and the grace of the Master go hand in hand. Effort is rewarded with grace, and grace brings more effort. When a laborer gets his wages after a day’s work, is the Master so unjust that he will keep back his grace from a diligent disciple?”

— Hazur Baba Sawan Singh
