“Take the Path to your heart. Make it the most important thing of your life because it’s worthwhile. When you will come to the end of your life, that’s what will be your treasure. That is what you will take with you out of this world. All the experiences and all the impressions which are imprinted in your deepest self will go with you. Nothing else will go with you.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Master Kirpal used to say that the Bhajan singing is meant to develop or increase receptivity. And we can all feel it. When we sing the Bhajans, something happens inside of our body, very deep inside of our cells. It is said that this human body is made of at least 70% water. And, water or, anyway, liquids, are very easily affected by higher frequencies. It was a Japanese scientist who made this study about the molecules of the water, and how they are transformed when they are exposed to a Bhajan singing or a Mantra singing. If you look at the molecules before they are exposed to the singing, they have a shape that is shapeless, not a nice shape. But when they are exposed to these frequencies of the holy songs or mantras, then they take a shape like a mandala or a yantra, which is very beautiful and very harmonious. Therefore, when we sing the Bhjans, our cells, which are, swimming actually in liquids, in water, feel this effect. There is this, transformation happening in the molecules of the cells, of the liquids contained by the cells. So it’s very healthy. It’s very beneficial at all levels. Physically, because of the effect they have on the cells. Mentally, because, of course, melodies are pleasant for the mind. And the mind becomes joyful, peaceful, relaxed, and calm when we see the Bhajans.”

“In the adventure of the soul or the adventure of consciousness coming into existence, it experiences itself through all the levels of creation, through all the kingdoms of creation. From the mineral to the vegetable or vegetation. To the insects and animals, and eventually to the humans. And then as an angel, as a God or Goddess, and eventually as this Supreme Being. But all this journey is meant to return to the Supreme in full awareness of who we are. When we come out as an embryo of consciousness, we are aware of nothing. Going through all these long processes takes us back to the Supreme in full awareness of being the Supreme, and you become like God.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“When one begins to feel the need to experience something higher, which is in the field of consciousness and spirit and Light, immaterial, then we can say we have reached a good point in our evolution. From then on, it may take a few lifetimes, and then we go back to the Source, to the Supreme. So let’s be happy for this. Let’s rejoice in this awareness. And let’s do our best to cooperate in this last leg of our evolution. Enjoy this journey. Enjoy this adventure in which we want to become from human to Divine. By winning overall, all our lust, anger, greed, attachment, egoism, vanity, and arrogance.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Those who do the meditation earn the profit and take it with them. So, Sant Ji often said, that the only wealth that you will take with you when you leave this world is your meditation. So, that’s the most precious thing we may gather when we are in this physical world. The love that we develop. The unconditional love for everything and everybody. That’s what we take with us, and that’s what joins together with the all-pervading love of the Supreme Being when we leave this world. Because that’s the most intrinsic nature of God, to be an intoxicating vast ocean of love, an unconditional love.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“So when we come on a spiritual Path, when we attend the retreat and, we do our meditation, we do it with the purpose of one day we will succeed in making our soul fly up to Sach Khand which means up to the plane of Truth. And this has been accomplished by so many people in the course of history, and even nowadays so many people have done it. So it’s a possibility for each one of us to raise our consciousness so high as to reach the plane where Truth prevails and all illusion or falsehood, all negativity dies off, and disappears. On this journey, on this adventure, there are many obstacles. There are many hindrances. But, true seekers of Truth will never be stopped by any of them, and we’ll be able to overcome all of them and keep going. So, we need to be brave. We need to be strong. We need to be determined, and we need to be disciplined. If you have all these qualities, then the journey, the Path, is a possibility. If you don’t have them then let’s try to beat them up. That’s why we come on the Path. We don’t come on a Path because we are perfect. We come on a Path to perfect ourselves.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“When I met Master Kirpal, I knew I had found my God, and His Path was also mine. These things are basic and fundamental for successful spiritual relations with the Master. To have a liking for this person for what radiates from him or her, to feel that this Path is also ours. If these things are present, then this relationship is going to last, and it’s going to bear wonderful fruits in time. We’ll be able to realize what the Master has realized. We’ll make his Path our own, and we’ll be able to bring it to others. We should not have enough of following the Master. We should become like the Master. Master Kripal used to say, don’t be a Christian. You be a Christ. Don’t be a Buddhist. Be a Buddha. So also in the Path, you don’t just be a follower of a Path or a follower of a Master, become yourself a Master. Try to make the Path fully your own and go through it and benefit from it.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“The Path is a precious something. It’s something that works if you use it if you get busy with it. You can have a wonderful life being on the Path. Be inspired, be intuitive, be bright, be joyful, blissful, and ecstatic. This is what the Path can give us. But we have to use it! We have to get involved in it.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“One has to find ways to make the Path and practice work. And at some point the way you doing it doesn’t work invent something. Be inventive, and find a way that it works. Because the Path is alive something, and all the alive things tend to stagnate. It’s in the nature of things. We create something, it is kept alive for a certain period, and then it goes to stagnation, deterioration, and death. It’s about everything. Everything undergoes this process. So, also the practice. We begin doing something in the beginning it’s effective. After sometimes less effective. After some time again not effective at all. So, we have to invent something else. And you know I can tell you the way it works for me, but maybe it won’t work with you. So, you have to invent it for yourself. You have to find out for yourself the way it works with you because we are all different. I may give you tips and hints, but you may try, but you have to be inventive.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Master Kirpal and Sant Ji always said when you begin with your meditation always start by singing a couple of songs that charge up the atmosphere, wake you up and then you have a better meditation.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“There is no easy way to spiritual awakening. There is no easy way to spiritual enlightenment. There is no easy way to evolution of consciousness. It’s a long process. And it takes a lot of effort and discipline. It takes a lot of work on yourself to improve yourself. There is no cheap way. Cheap ways are for the stupid people who are not able and do not want to change their lives and habits, improve themselves, and be better, good, excellent human beings. So, there is no cheap way.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“The other way to enjoy your life is just to be focused, fully focused on what you’re doing. And try to stop this chattering of the mind, this remembering and fantasizing about everything. So, just be there where you are. Do one thing at a time. Live in the living present. Do constant Simran. This is the way to keep your consciousness up. That’s all.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Constant Simran practice is the most helping factor in keeping the consciousness up and also in training ourselves in developing this habit, which then has to become a second nature of repeating the Simran. So, in all the mystical paths, this practice of constant repetition and constant remembrance is very much praised and advised, because that’s the way to keep tuned in with the Divine Presence. Because it is said that between the Named One and His Name, there is no difference. So if you repeat the names of what is your divinity, then you get tuned in with it and you get lots of blessings.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“What is said in Satsang it’s precious, and it’s for improving our understanding of life and things. So, it’s a teaching that we should take to our heart and try to apply it to our lives. Food if it’s eaten gives us nourishment. If we leave it there, it will not nourish us. So, the teachings are the same thing. It’s nourishment for your soul, for your mind, and for your life. Use them!”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Death is a blessing. It’s the best good luck that might happen in the life of a person. It’s the time of the reunion. It’s the wedding with the Infinite. We are going back into a love, which is thick as cream. And for people who are on a spiritual Path that will be the Supreme bliss. So, don’t be afraid of dying. Death is a blessing. And when somebody dies do not be sad, just be happy. He/She has gone back to His/Her Beloved. So, when somebody dies we have to rejoice.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Through all the experiences, which you gather in your meditation, you become more and more detached from everything and everybody. You will be able to use things and not be used by things. And if you have the all wealth of this world you take it, and if you lose it you don’t care at all. In an easy situation, you won’t be enthusiastic. And in difficult situations, you won’t be broken, you won’t be depressed, you just take it. What comes well and good, what goes well and good.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Intense spiritual retreats are the training ground where we train ourselves as spiritual people, as meditators to improve our meditation, our spiritual practice and try to get something out of it. Because let’s be real. In our daily lives, it’s not so easy to meditate when we are by ourselves unless we are a blessed, determined, and strong person.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Any meditation sitting that we have, it’s a process for learning how to die. So, what should a Satsangi do? Should do as much meditation as possible so that you learn how to die. So, that’s how we prepare the best way for death by doing meditation and trying to experience this process of dying while living, while we are in this body. “Learn to die that you may begin to live.” So, the more we learn this process and the more we experience it the better beings we will be, the most happy and fulfilled we will be. Because an effective meditation it’s what transforms us from common, ordinary human beings into special human beings.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Once we are Liberated then we will be sent only to those situations in which we can be of help for other people to grow because that’s how life evolves. A good person brings his/her goodness around himself/herself. Helps others to improve. So, anybody who becomes a better human being is used by the Supreme Being to be a help to others. That’s how it works. So, we should try once we are on the Path, once we have understood the dynamics of life, how it works, what we should do, and what’s the purpose of this life then we should do our best to use the tools that we have the best way we can. So, has to accomplish the best progress that we can in this life.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Initiation is a transmission of spiritual energy. But that doesn’t mean that the Master by giving this transmission has less energy or loses anything by it. Master Kirpal used to say that the storehouse has always a supply of energy. And it doesn’t matter how many switches you connect with it, still the supply doesn’t diminish. So, Initiation is a blessing, a transmission of energy. It’s not just a ritual, a ceremony, or a teaching of a mantra, and that’s it. No. Master Kirpal used to say Initiation is transmitting a life impulse from the Master to the disciple. The life impulse is a spark of the Supreme Divine Power or Satguru Power, God-into-expression Power that is transmitted to the person who is being initiated. And because of this blessing, because of this transmission, the one who has been initiated feels an upliftment, a certain withdrawal from his/her consciousness, from his/her physical body, and the Inner Vision is opened and gets to see the Inner Light and sometimes even much much deeper and profound experience. Then he/she is connected to the Shabd, the Lifestream, the Sound Current, or the Voice of Silence. You can call in many ways. That’s what Initiation is.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji
