Happiness

No son of man is really happy. Each one suffers from unhappiness of one type or another – for physical, mental, or intellectual reasons. Everyone has one woe or another. The whole world seeks permanent happiness. Why does a person toil to earn his living? Because he wants some happiness. Why does he desire good […]

Death and transience

Whatever we see around is just like a sand-wall having a very short life. It crumbles as soon as water dries up. It is said, “World is a mere dream and a juggler’s play.” This magic show, with no reality, lasts only for a while. Sant Kirpal Singh From a lecture by Sant Kirpal Singh, […]

Humility and simplicity

Humility does not consist in hiding our talents and virtues, in thinking ourselves worse and more ordinary than we are, but in possessing a clear knowledge of all that is lacking in us, and not exalting ourselves for that which we have, seeing that God has freely given it to us, for with all His […]

Life is like a journey

These contacts are for a temporary period, to wind up all give and take – just as you go on the train. When your station comes, you jump down. Others may be dragging you, but you don’t remain on the train, do you? Similarly, when the give and take is up, man has to go, […]
