LETTER FROM BAL BHAGWAN
It fills my heart with joy when I come to know that you all are preaching the Holy Name and the True Knowledge. Every day I receive countless letters from the devotees abroad and learn that new ashrams are being set up all over the world.
Till the fields of your hearts, so that the seed of Holy Knowledge can be sown in them. The water of Holy Nectar and constant effort is bringing out the evergreen spiritual tree. The sunshine of grace and the breeze of divinity will cherish the tree of everlasting life. Our spiritual tree will bear the fruits in the shape of the Holy Knowledge, which mankind will pluck at the time of need. Agitated minds will get satisfaction from us. The poor will grow rich, for spiritual wealth constitutes real richness. Blind persons will be able, to see their true form, which is difficult even for the eyes to perceive. The lame would over-run the empty deserts of the intellect and cross the mountains of materialism. One who is thirsty will drink the Wine of Life and never be thirsty again. The deaf will hear the heavenly harmony and will merge in the sound of sounds. Such a world is to come. It is not a fiction but a reality. This is the Kingdom of Heaven which Christ spoke of.
Dig up your hearts and yourself realize the spiritual domain within you. Why should you be a slave when thou art a master? Open your hearts to receive the warmth of love and light of Shri Guru Maharaj Ji. You have not come here to live permanently. This world is only a temporary inn. Why then make your life miserable and unhappy? Live your life with the Knowledge of Life in true spirit and happiness. If you knowest thyself thou would know all. Ignorance brings hatred and war. Wars originate in the minds of men, and it is in the mind of men that the defences of peace must be constructed. Knowledge alone brings love and peace. The higher you go, the greater is your vision. Be high spiritually and the universe will come in you, with the unbreakable bond of love.
The tree would bear the seeds and would multiply itself. It is the never-ending tree of spirituality. You are the tree of the Lord. Give shady shelter to those who desire rest. Give the fruit of Knowledge to those who seek. You are born to benefit humanity and expect not to be benefitted by it. You are the instrument of the Lord, who has come on this earth to restore peace and happiness in the lives of the miserable ones.
Blessings and peace to you all
Bal Bhagwan ji
