The aim of education is the development of a unified personality, in which all units of man’s being work together harmoniously. But how is this to be brought about? And where is this whole-making force? What opportunity exists for personal progress without knowledge of the units of man’s total being? And how can man know himself, if he remains ignorant of the forces that make him what he is? We are weak and fearful as long as we rely upon ourselves along. Let us enter the Whole-Being, of whom we are but a small segment, and we shall be filled with the fullness of His life. The deification of our nature is a thing to strive for: the strengthening and refreshing of our souls come from the Living Word, the Holy Nam or Surt-Shabad—the Lifestream of the Lord, the only unifying power in the cosmos. No scientific laws ever discovered or discoverable can compare in importance and necessity with the discovery of this Living Word, of Power, which unifies man’s whole being and makes him one in nature and character with his indwelling God. It comes not upward from below, but downward from above, to lift the soul up. The Pearl of Greatest Price is for all who seek to go ever onward, forward, and Godward. In God’s constant comradeship, ever hell itself becomes Paradise; and without Him, Paradise is hell. Only the most fortunate and elect of souls study such unparalleled books and become worthy to be connected with God’s Life Stream within them.
“Truth is not the denial of anything in life. It is the fulfillment of all things." In this series of seven lectures, Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind addresses the deﬁning metaphysical concepts of Sikhism and discusses some of the more practical aspects of realizing the divine wisdom that lies within us all, here and now. A master rhetorician as well as an accomplished spiritual adept, Dr.Thind illustrates his lucid explanation of subtle but profound spiritual truths with traditional stories from his native India and entertaining anecdotes from his own experiences as a student and teacher of the path to realization. In this way, Dr. Thind leads the student to ask and answer such questions as how the will can coexist with nature and Godhead; how to develop personal magnetism as a tool for realization; how to manifest the latent energy of shakti and open up the seven chakras in daily life and spiritual practice; how to conquer the passions that drive worldly affairs and turn them to divine use; how to harness the power of concentration in meditation; how to use sex energy constructively; and much more. Divine wisdom is not some distant object to be attained; it is latent within each of us, waiting to be realized.
In this collection of deep and inspiring essays, Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind imparts a true knowledge of life as it appears in physical manifestation. In doing so, he has set forth the true philosophy of life, in which philosophical selfishness is set aside, creeds and dogmas are relegated to the past, and sunlight of truth is permitted to shine in all its splendor. There can be no variance in truth. It is the same now and forever. Where there appears to be variance, it is due to a perversion by the instrument through which the observer views the world, such that the media through which life is manifesting is at variance with the object seen. The grandeur of life is destroyed by the attitude of the ego toward the objective world---which, however, has not changed. The change is within man and is caused by the assumption of various moods. Instead, we must learn to view the world by the divine spark that animates our being. We must become one with the Infinite in order to comprehend even a small portion of it all. Dr Thind has very explicitly blaze the path to full comprehension of our higher nature, and if faithfully followed it will lead the seeker to higher knowledge.
