The Masters Have The Key To The Door That Can Only Be Opened With The Sound Current

GOD ALMIGHTY HAS CREATED this Creation and encased the soul in this body. And then He has closed the Tenth Door from inside and kept the soul's attention outside. He has given the key of that Door to the Masters. And that Door can only be opened with the Sound Current.

So, Saints come from time to time, and They awaken the souls. Kabir Sahib, Nanak Sahib, after Nanak Sahib there were nine other Gurus, then Swami Ji Maharaj, Kirpal Singh Ji, Ajaib Singh Ji. So, He keeps sending Saints from time to time. However, the practice now is slightly different in Kali Yuga than in the earlier yugas.

In the early yugas, the body was much stronger and was capable of doing more hard work, and japas and tapas were, perhaps, the means that were there earlier. But now, in Kali Yuga, the body has become weaker. The mind has also become weaker. So, Saints have given the Surat Shabd as the means now.

Kabir Sahib also has said, “I have been coming in all yugas.” In the Sat Yuga, He came as Sat Sukrit. In the Dwapar Yuga, He came as Karunamai. In the Treta Yuga, He came as Maninder. And, in the Kali Yuga, He has come as Sant Kabir. So, Saints come in all the yugas. The practice may be slightly different in the different yugas, but They always come into this world.

Tulsi Das has also said that there is no other yuga as good as the Kali Yuga because, in such a short span of a lifetime, we can get our salvation and go back to God Almighty. Because, if we follow the Teachings of the Masters and, day and night, we do our meditation, then we can be successful very quickly in this yuga.

It was not so simple in earlier yugas. One had to undergo a lot of hardship in the earlier yugas. Therefore, Saints have said that Kali Yuga is the best period. And in this yuga, if a jiva turns inward and turns his interest away from worldly matters and Maya, then he can be successful very quickly in this yuga. Even in the Kali Yuga, earlier a lot of difficulties had to be undergone before one would get initiation. But, gradually, as the times became more difficult, Saints have made it easier for Their disciples.

Earlier, one had to undergo a lot of tests before he would be fit for receiving the initiation. But, after Swami Ji Maharaj, the doors have opened, and everyone is initiated who comes seeking initiation. And it has become easier to get initiation. So, we are indeed fortunate to get the company of Masters. We should follow Their Teachings and stay on the Path.

So, this morning time is good. Our mind is quiet. A quiet mind is good for meditation. So, we should make the most of this time, close our eyes, and sit for meditation.
