Awakening Your Latent Spirituality With Shabd Bhakti And Satguru Bhakti

Radhaswami Dayal ki Daya Radhaswami Sahai: "Grant Merciful Radhasoami Thy Grace and Protection"

Hymn of Soami Ji Maharaj on Devotion to the Master (Satguru Bhakti) and Devotion to the inner Sound during Meditation (Shabd Bhakti — Naam Bhakti)

Turn and look within yourself. Why do you wander about in the jungle of the external world?

The Guru exhorts you every moment to perform Simran [remembering God’s Name] day and night.

Enshrine the image of Guru within yourself [Dhyan] and make your wanton mind steady.

Then direct your Surat [the attention-faculty of the soul] towards the Door to higher regions, and penetrate the Third Eye Center.

Sit quietly there in meditation, i. e., in Gagan [the inner Mystic Sky], and apply your mind to the Sound Current [Shabd].

Fix your Surat in Sunn [the Void]. Do not wander about in the regions of the three gunas (qualities).

Do not tarry in the regions of evils and vices. Your life has been wasted in deceptions and delusions. Now, search for Shabd [inner Sound, the Positive Power].

Always move in the company of the Sant Satguru. Do not run after wealth, honour and reputation.

Control your mind and senses. Engage yourself in this effort only.

In course of time, you will be able to subdue your mind and senses; and then you will hear Nada (Shabd) [the Sound Current, the Positive Power]

Thereafter, it will not take long to awaken your latent spirituality. You will be immersed in the bliss of melodious Shabds (inner Sounds).

Now fall at the Holy Feet of Radhasoami [the Lord of the Soul]. He will accomplish your task in a moment.
