“Keep improving, never get tired. It’s a work that we have to do all of our life.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“We have to become different human beings. We have to show that all the practice we do and all the blessings we get on the Inner Journey, then we transform it into action and practice. It means we transform how we think, how we talk, and how we behave. And this is the most difficult process.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Master Kirpal used to say: ” Realizing God is very easy. To become a real man, it’s much more difficult. ” On a spiritual Path inner experiences are not everything. They are very important to begin walking on the Path and to begin to understand the methodology, the dynamics, and the reality of the inner journey. But then all of these experiences have to transform you from an ordinary human being into a Divine human being with Divine qualities. So, you have to transform yourself.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Your body, mind, possessions, your eyes, mouth, nose, ears, hands, feet, all these worldly paraphernalia, all belong to Satguru, to the Supreme Being.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“There are so many things happening in this world that seems to be terrible. Terribly wrong. But they are not wrong, because that’s what we have to go through to make a step forward in our evolution.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Everything is perfect and appropriate. Even if it may seem so out of place. This is the gap we have to fill. Going from the totally wrong conviction, that everything is out of place, to get to the conviction that everything is perfect and appropriate. It doesn’t mean it’s perfect in the absolute sense of things. It’s perfect for the level we are in in this time. To make the next step, we need to stand where we are.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“All we do, it’s not done by us, but it’s done by Him. And it’s His work. We’re just working for this Supreme Being. We’re not working for this boss we have or the company for which we work. These are tiny specks of dust in the immensity of the Divine Plan. We’re working for the wider scheme of everything. The wider scheme of this Supreme Plan of God.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Whatever you do, always be convinced you’re doing Satguru’s work. This is the Supreme Satguru we are talking about. Not a human being, but this immense Divine Power. The Divine Intelligence that leads, governs and moves everything, according to His plan. So we should always be deeply convinced that all the work that happens in this world, anywhere, everywhere and with everybody, is moved by His Will. Its always accomplished by this Supreme Power. We are not the doer, He is the doer.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“God is always with us and is going to do with us, only what is the best for us. It doesn’t mean that it is going to be pleasant always. That it is going to be always what we would like. No. It’s going to be always what is in our best interest, for our spiritual progress.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Be sure, God is always with you. He’s your shadow, always follows you. You can never get rid of Him. So deeply convince yourself that this Supreme Reality is not somewhere far. It’s always there with you, all the time.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Sports, music, anything that we do with our body it’s something, maybe very great, but never as great as God’s realization. So, God’s realization is the greatest goal that we may have in our life. But to succeed in this, you need a ruling passion for this. So, if you have this ruling passion, that means if you have a spiritual inclination that takes you to a ruling passion for God, then you may succeed.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Passion is very important in anything we do. When we come to spirituality and spiritual practice there also we need a passion for it. If we don’t have this passion then we don’t get anywhere. Master Kirpal always used the term “a ruling passion for God”.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Any spiritual practice has to be enough intense. Not too much, otherwise, you may freak out, and it may make you imbalanced. But also, if you don’t apply it with a due intensity, then it will take you nowhere. So, if you take any activities that human beings do, when do they work properly? When they are done with due intensity, with due discipline and regularity, without overdoing. Otherwise, you collapse.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Where does the Path want to take us? It wants to take us to the Supreme Realization of the Supreme God. That which is above everything. Time, space, causality, and so on. But how do we get there? That’s the important thing. How do we aim at something? But then we have to travel to get there. But how do we travel? That’s the most important thing on any spiritual Path. Because, if you take food let’s say. You may eat the most organic, natural, excellent food, vegetarian, very nicely cooked, but if you eat too much then it’s not good. It’s not going to do any good to you. So, in this case, you might eat food, that is not excellent, but if you eat the proper quantity then it’s fine. It will give you strength. So, anything it requires a method. It requires discipline. It requires doing it properly. So, meditation, the practice of Surat Shabd Yoga if you do it correctly will take you to the Supreme Reality. But how do you have to put it into practice? That’s the most important thing.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“In the spiritual realm, Light and Sound always go together. All those who have a mystical experience or a near-to-death experience will all say there was a Light and there was also a Sound. The outer temples, whichever of the Hindus, the Sikh, the Buddhists, the Christians all have these two symbols. In any of these religious places, you find these same two symbols always. Light and Sound. You might have a candle, you might have a bell, you might have a drum or you might have anything, but there are always these two symbols. Because that is how it is. God-into-expression power manifests in these two main ways. And they always go together. So, once you go deep into meditation and you see the Light, and the Light becomes very bright at some point, the Light begins sounding also. It’s always accompanied by sound.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“The goal of any spiritual Path is to take you to a state of consciousness of the Divine.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Any spiritual Path must be a practical Path. Something on which you work according to the method to come to experience what the Path offers to you. So, if you don’t put it into practice nothing is going to happen. And this is not just about Surat Shabd Yoga or any other type of Yoga. It’s about everything in life. You are given a theory about something. How to do this. How to do that. But if you don’t do it nothing is going to happen. So, a Master proposes something to a seeker. I propose to you a Path that’s called Surat Shabd Yoga. But if you don’t put into practice the Path, the methodology then nothing is going to happen. So, first of all, it has to be put into action, in practice if you want to get any results. Otherwise, it’s pure theory, belief, or doctrine which doesn’t take you anywhere.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“When we suffer a lot then we are capable of making decisions in order not to suffer again in that way and improve and become better human beings. There is a saying that says “We often find ourselves facing great blessings dressed up as unsolvable problems”. And very often the toughest is the problem the bigger is the change.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“Evil it’s an apparent phenomenon. Like everything, it’s real and unreal. It has a purpose and the purpose is evolution. As far as it may seem absurd, evil is very important. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be evolution in this world. It’s like why is there suffering? Suffering is there because we need to learn things. It’s not a malediction going through a very intense suffering period in life. Sometimes from the darkest experiences, there comes out the brightest transformation. So, suffering and evil also are needed.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji

“God is a phenomenon that keeps renewing itself. And He is never the same. So, how can you believe in the words of a person that came centuries or millennia ago? Some Truths are always valid, but the basic message doesn’t apply anymore to the times. Because Truth keeps renewing itself. It’s never the same.”

— Satguru Sirio Ji
