In his writings and teachings, Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind has made immense contributions toward an integral psychology, philosophy, and scientific approach to religion. Finding God is the most profitable discovery; only in God is man truly himself. If Heaven is not within, there is no Heaven.
The human mind is the place where everyone has to live, and it is within this human mind that everyone has to find his only opportunity for peace, happiness, and wholeness. The division between the mind’s different units is destructive and disruptive of harmony, health, and happiness. As Dr. Thind wrote, “For the human mind and its ills there is no cure, only palliatives, except one—that the mind be made whole. Only the unified mind can see things whole and see them all the time.”
That which raises man above the beast and his ego-centeredness, however altruistically inclined, is neither the church nor scriptures, dogmas, and rites, nor any or all defunct founders of “religions,” neither the cudgel for the beast nor the cautioned restraint of the mentally matured, though all are necessary in their respective places. Rather, that which raises man to wholeness is the inward five-melodied music of the everlasting word of God, the Holy Nam—the Punch Shabad.
Each individual is unique, distinct, different, and divine. Nothing can save him the hardships of his own self-development. We are sub-humans until we face facts and catch them alive; meet them, greet them, and beat them, and grow through them into the Godlike stature of our souls. Only then can we become “Pillars of Powers” as we work with Chardhi-Kala of the Nam—the power of horizontal self-transcendence.
