“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

Whatever way mind wants, he makes the Satsangi dance to his tune. But the Satsangi should not dance to the tune of the mind, with all his strength he should do the Simran. If the mind creates any thought of losing faith or anything like that, punish your mind and do more Simran. If you are used to sitting for one hour and if your mind is bothering you in that one hour, meditate for two hours on that day.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“So if all the time we think of Him, no matter while we are engaged in worldly pursuits, we will gradually imbibe His spirit.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“So, in the court of Saints, this is the greatest teaching, the secret of all secrets: that God is won by him who will give his mind.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“The great value of life it’s in achieving the Divine condition, the Divine state, the Divine consciousness. That’s the goal of life! That’s the gift that we get if we are ready for it!”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“If we saturate our mind with repetition of Divine names then Divinity comes and dwells within us.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Divinity is potentially within every human being. We only have to live a lifestyle that allows us to manifest it. How do we do this? The same way as all the great Masters have done it, in all spiritual traditions, in all the parts of the world. We do it by meditating on Naam, by manifesting the Inner Light. They illuminated the world by meditating on Naam and realising the potential divinity within themselves. When a person achieves such a realisation, other people will naturally gather around him or her because they sense the beneft, and they will also become illuminated or enlightened.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“If we have not developed eyes which can see the brilliance of God, how can we ask the Master to show us God? First we should make our eyes able to see God. When we do the meditations regularly, when we make our lives pure, when we keep our thoughts pure, then the eyes which can see God are developed and we can go within and see the brilliance of God.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“Compassionate as He is, His grace is always at work in each and all alike, for we cannot live without it. We can, however, attract that grace to our advantage by becoming a fit receptacle for it. Humility and faith purify the mind and make it a fitting instrument for God’s grace. These two aids help in inverting the lotus of the mind which, at present, is attuned with the senses. Unless we are able to turn its direction upwards, God’s grace cannot directly flow into it. Prayers, humble and sincere, help in establishing a harmony between man’s mind and God’s grace. All that is required is a loving and pure heart attuned to His grace and the latter is automatically attracted to it. Prayer has in it a great dynamic force. It strengthens and prepares a person to face and fight the battle of life fearlessly and successfully. It is in fact the only panacea for all types of ills. It is the key that unlocks the Kingdom of Heaven.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“Satsangis should not miss the regularity because in regularity is the prosperity. If we miss meditation even for one day it takes us three days or more to meditate and fill up that gap. Because even if we meditate for four or five hours daily, still because we think about the world a lot, the worldly portion is much more. That is why the Satsangis should make a habit of regularity in their meditation. Even if it is only a little, it doesn’t matter, but they should be regular in meditation.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“When the Master initiates someone, He resides with him; He watches all of his actions, guiding him further where it is needed; especially those who turn their faces to Him.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“The karmas in life have to be paid; so why not pay them cheerfully? All our relationships and environments have been written by the Lord’s pen, and He has joined both individuals and circumstances through the prarabdha karmas. It behooves us to live through them with the best attitude.”

— Sant Kirpal Singh

“Each satsangi should always be determined to do the meditation; he should not go after getting experiences, he should only be determined to do his meditations regularly and wholeheartedly.”

— Sant Ajaib Singh

“To the best of your efforts you should resort to the repetition of charged Names all along your vacant moments and keep yourself immersed in the loving remembrance of the Master.”

— Sant Kirpal 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
