Our Treasure Increases
July 29, 1966, Prem Nagar, India
O my brothers, this is not a day of merry-making because
the night of the 19th, at three o'clock, Guru Maharaj Ji
left his body. But I feel that Guru Maharaj Ji is alive
and always will remain alive.
So many times, Guru Maharaj Ji has come to this world.
There have been many, many Perfect Masters and each one
has revealed the very same Knowledge. You have not
understood. Each Divine Incarnation has gone away and
still you have not realized the Knowledge He brought.
Now, if you want to know the Truth, then get that Supreme
Knowledge soon, because this body will be destroyed one
day. You have got to get Knowledge as soon as possible,
otherwise the shop will be closed. This Knowledge will
grow more and more expensive; it will not remain
Today you people think that Guru Maharaj Ji is not here.
Again you have not understood His true form, but I will
explain everything to you. If you do not realize God
within, then Guru Maharaj Ji, the Perfect Master, will
manifest again and again in this world and you will see
Him in the form you like.
When a Perfect Master comes, he cannot be bound by the
rule of government, but we know that if we have to
explain this to the world people will not understand.
Even when people of this world see a true saint, they do
not recognize him. Every time the Perfect Master comes,
some people think that he is true, some think that he is
If a man sends his son to steal, that man wants to
benefit himself and harm another. If a person thinks that
his own nation and government are good and others are
evil, he will kill people for that nation. That is why
saints are not ruled by this world or by its governments.
He who wants pleasure will give pain to others; he who
wants profit will think of giving loss to someone
Who is there who can give happiness to all? There may be
people here who have not received Knowledge. What does
Guru Maharaj Ji give when He gives you the Knowledge? Who
can tell me the meaning of the Word? He who cannot tell
me its meaning, I do not consider him to be learned.
These days, so many people are following different
religions. But a day is going to come when all of the
religions created by men are going to finish and only one
true religion will remain. These days religion has become
a play. In the name of religion, people create confusion
and spread falsehoods, but remember! If a man had brought
something with him to this world, then he would have
taken it back with him. But no, he did not bring anything
with him. He did not bring that Knowledge with him; what
Knowledge did he have at the time of birth?
If man had brought the Knowledge with him, then he would
have taken the Knowledge and gone directly to the Kingdom
of Heaven. But no, a man must find that Knowledge of God.
This is the highest religion. Time should not be
Saint Kabir Sahib was a Guru. Do you respect him? He
said, 'You spend the night in sleeping, and the day you
waste in eating. This life is priceless but you are
spending it as if it's worth a penny.' Today, I tell you
the same thing but you still do not listen. If you do not
value the true realization of God, then how can you say
that Maharaj Ji should come back?
Guru Maharaj Ji has left his body of five elements and
the time will keep passing.
At this time, how many premies are there that think that
Maharaj Ji is only in the form of a photograph? But for
me, it is not that way. I understand that as quickly as a
king draws his sword. Guru Maharaj Ji can be manifested
in front of every one of you. He surely can be
manifested, but you are like a hot iron which will not
let the blacksmith take rest. When Guru Maharaj Ji comes,
then the sword will be made.
You can all see Guru Maharaj Ji sitting in front of you
in the form of a photograph, but you should understand
that he is even more near to us. He is omnipresent. He is
present in this photograph and he is within you in your
own heart. Guru Maharaj Ji is present in this body.
I want to ask the Pandits, these hypocrites, if they
chant mantras while asleep. Guru Maharaj Ji has revealed
to us the Holy Name, that is like air inside and outside
of us. Now, Guru Maharaj Ji has dissolved himself in the
air. That Word, that Name disappears in the air and you
bring that air into you when you breathe, waking or
Today, Guru Maharaj Ji has to take your test. However you
see me, I accept it. Guru Maharaj Ji has to take your
test; even I have to take it. All great saints have
suffered your test. You should not waste time. And how
should you not waste time?
Today, you have got this human body. It is most difficult
to get it. The Scriptures say, "With great luck we are
born in human form. It is difficult even for the gods to
attain the human body. It is the only temple suitable for
spiritual endeavors." To use it properly, we have to know
the means which is the gateway to liberation.
First of all, we have to realize why we are alive. We
should not arouse Guru Maharaj Ji's anger, because we
want only to see him all the time. When you are in the
presence of Guru Maharaj Ji, time stops, death does not
Guru Maharaj Ji is the creator of the whole universe.
Still the world gives him pain and will keep giving him
pain. He said, "Let me rest at least for two days." You
did not let him rest, but called him back to you. I feel
that Guru Maharaj Ji is here and is giving satsang
through my body. After all, what is in me? I have only
flesh, nerves, blood and bones. My body does not have
anything more. But I have got the same soul as Guru
Maharaj Ji. Guru Maharaj Ji is within me. He is in
everyone. He is present in everyone and also in me. So
realize that Guru Maharaj Ji is himself speaking. Do not
look only at my body.
In the body, there are bones, flesh, blood, nerves, veins
and such; what else is there? The same thing is in a dog;
the same thing is in a cat. If you see only my body, then
I am a dog, I am a cat. The cat meows. So, likewise, I
keep speaking. And if you call me a dog, then I am a dog.
When I speak loudly, then I bark very loudly. Dogs keep
If you call me a snake, I am also a snake. When a snake
bites, it hurts. To some people, my preaching is hurting
like an arrow, and to some it is not hurting.
Today, listen and listen properly. If you will not
listen, then you have nothing to do with us. If you have
nothing to do with what Guru Maharaj Ji is speaking, then
you may go.
So the thing is that after coming into this world, you
and I have to meditate and peace will come from that
meditation. All seers, all saints, all Masters have
gotten peace by meditating upon the Holy Name. But I want
to ask the people of today why they do not want to
worship God. It does not cost even a penny.
We have nothing else to know but one thing. Sit in a
peaceful place and do meditation. Eat and meditate and
listen to satsang. You cannot meditate when on one side
the child is calling to you, "Mother, mother!" so we
should do meditation in a quiet place. You can get peace
only through meditation. If there is a battery-powered
toy, until you put the battery in the toy, it cannot
move. If a toy car has a key, it will not start moving by
itself. The main thing is the key. So when we wind the
true thing in ourselves, then we move. The child is born;
if the mother does not give him anything to eat when he
is hungry, then he will remain hungry. Only when he is
four or six years old will he start eating by
Our work is to do meditation. How to do meditation? (He
sits in meditation and demonstrates how.)
If you don't know where the shop for toys is, then how
will you buy toys? The toy shop is here. It is in this
hall and the only salesman is Guru Maharaj Ji. You take
from him and the price is only that when meditation is
shown to you, you must do it.
I want that whatever faith you have, you should take care
of that faith. In this age, what do the Christians do?
They have very big halls where they go and pray. Christ
spread the Knowledge of God in his time; what was that
In many places, temples have been constructed, but in
each temple the worshippers see only a single saint. When
they come and listen to satsang, then we say to them,
"The God you worship is our God also."
When Knowledge of God is spread through the whole world,
there will be one religion. The Knowledge will be spread
through mahatmas, because, without these great souls, it
cannot be done. You cannot prepare the lamp without
Without oil, it will not burn. The spreading of the
Knowledge is beneficial for all. That is why we should
not waste time. We have to give even our last breath for
the sake of others.
You can practice propagating this Knowledge and see for
yourself. When Guru Maharaj Ji was here, what did he
He spread the Knowledge to everyone and such work he did
that it will never end. Everyone kept taking from his
endless treasure. He told me, "I came for this purpose
only. Now you have to do my work."
I will unite all religions. I only need the grace of Guru
Maharaj Ji. We will become such a multitude that we will
fill every hall and every temple.
Guru Maharaj Ji is in front of us. I have got in me the
God who is omnipresent God. Guru Maharaj Ji is within my
heart and is everywhere. It is truly said that, "In this
world, meet everyone with great love. You never know in
what form God comes to meet you."
And it is said, "Who sows thorns for you, sow for him
flowers; you will have flowers upon flowers in return but
he will have only thorns."
Our treasure will keep increasing. But if you have got
the true thing then it does not mean that you have to
become a guru yourself and start giving Knowledge to
others. It means that you should bring people to the
mahatmas. See, if the straws are joined together, the
stick is made. In the same way, if all are unified then
how much strength will remain.
So brothers, my meaning is that the Name which Guru
Maharaj Ji has revealed to you should be meditated upon.
I did not really want to say anything. I only know this,
brothers, that we must meditate.
Where Goes All The
This Satsang was given by Guru Maharaj Ji on
December 1, 1966 in Dehra Dun, India
Behold, O people! I want to tell you one thing.
Everything in the world is good, but one thing I dislike
beyond description. When people set out for a journey,
first they worry about their arrangements: "Oh, this
thing is left, that thing is left." It is a very bad
There is such a type of journey that one will have to go
on leaving all things. Therefore, when we start from a
place, at first we should meditate upon God. Whatever a
man does, he understands that if he does this thing, he
will get the best result.
It is a great mistake to think of the result. Lord
Krishna has told that one should do work without thinking
of the result. But man cannot remain without thinking of
the result. He cares always about his livelihood.
However, the stomach of all can be filled up. One has to
fill up the heart with Knowledge. The Knowledge has got a
place that's called "upadesh" (heaven). Countries are
many, such as England, Germany, India, but that is not
such a country. That country is something different. When
that is realized, a man becomes free. Then only can he
meditate on God at all times - while awake, sleeping,
eating and drinking, sitting and moving - at all times he
The people say that they chant "Rama, Rama." But I wonder
how can you chant it by your mouth while dying? The lips
will be closed; its movement will be stopped. Then from
where will come the sound? But there is a type of
chanting which is never stopped. It is chanted through
People say to me, "Sant Ji, my mind is not set in
meditation." It can be, but first you do, then see. Oh!
God is omnipresent. He is present inside everybody. It is
a false statement that mind is not absorbed in the
meditation. In reality, such men do not like to
You see, there is no guarantee of the body. Really, I am
telling you, anything may happen, anytime. But this world
is blind. While seeing, it does not see. But who seems to
be blind, he possesses eyes in my opinion. He meditates
on God in a solitary place, living away from the world.
Therefore, I tell it again and again, that one should
But there is no will in people's minds. I know what is
the will of their mind. Do you know? The will of their
mind is that they should not meditate. They never do. It
is just in the memory. If one says, "My hand is all right
but it moves not," you move it, then it will be moved.
When you type, then it will be typed. God sent you. Did
He send you to die? God has pre-arranged all comforts and
happiness for him whom He has sent. He sent nectar for
the butterfly. Wherefore do all these mountains, trees,
rivers and such come from? I used to think: from where
are all these things created? I came to know that God is
the only Supreme Being who created multiple things. With
the help of these things people are able to live their
Who can know the maya of God? His maya is unlimited. He
can do as He likes. When Lord Buddha was born, it is said
that even matter (unconscious things) started moving.
Plants and trees bloomed and laughed. Waves were rising
in water. You see for yourself when a premie comes here,
at first his face is sad, but when the premie has
remained, then his face becomes cheerful. Where goes all
the sadness? This is the love of God.
Therefore, one should meditate. We have our attainment
only in meditation. If you did not meditate on God, you
did nothing. I went to Prem Nagar and went to the top
floor. I became very sad. I thought that God has provided
us with everything except a school. I had wished for one
and as you can see the wish is being fulfilled now. God
fulfills the desire of all.
Certainly we are examined. We should not remain uselessly
before Maharaj Ji. One should be open-minded, should not
be silly. He should say something to Maharaj Ji. Even if
he commits a mistake, it does not matter. One should
depend upon God wholeheartedly.
Therefore, attainment is the meditation of God. We have
to reach across the ocean and go to that island. To
attain that we have to be released from here. We have to
be rescued. We have to attain salvation. We have to
depend upon God only. Angadh told that he would cross the
ocean by jumping, but would not be able to come back.
Hanuman Ji didn't speak anything, but jumped across the
river and came back again. What I mean to say is have
faith in God and meditate upon Him.
September 22, 1967, Prem Nagar, India
Dear premies, it's really sad to see people celebrating
religious holidays without understanding the significance
behind them. They don't understand the message that every
saint or prophet has brought, and yet they celebrate
their birthdays as festivals.
Have you ever really known the purpose of man's
existence? It is to know God. But where can God be found?
He can't be found in trees or buildings, in religious
assemblies or temples. We say that God is everywhere, but
if we haven't seen Him first within ourselves, we can
never see Him elsewhere. Only one who has seen and known
God within himself can see God in buildings, temples,
books, rosary beads, and so on.
Some people call Him "Ram," but they don't know His true
form. What is the meaning of "Ram?" He who resides in
every atom is "Ram." People haven't known Him within
themselves, and yet they say, "He's here; He's there;
He's everywhere!" What is His tr~e form? Aren't we all
eager to know His true identity?
It is said, "My form is such, that even the brilliance of
one thousand suns can never equal it." If His form is so
magnificent and if we have such a desire to know it,
what's the trouble? Know Him. Know His Name. Even though
God is One, He pervades everywhere. So what is His real
form? If you want to know His true Name and want to see
His true form, then take refuge in Guru Maharaj Ji. When
you have this Knowledge, you will not need to know
anything else. You will know why this human body has been
given to you.
If someone wants to know something, he will consult
someone who already knows about it. For example: if some
electrical work needs to be done, you will go to the
person who knows how to do it You will get hold of an
electrician. You won't go to just anyone. Those who seek
God will have to go to someone who already knows the true
Name of God. So, leave your arrogance and indignation
behind. You sing hymns and listen to sermons every week,
but what do they tell you? What do all the great saints
say? They tell us whether this world is true or false,
and how God pervades it. So think about it and find out
And all premies should practice meditation. Guru Nanak
said, "Meditate upon the Holy Name yourself, and inspire
others to meditate also. In this way, you will definitely
attain liberation." A student first completes his own
studies. Only then does he become a teacher, and teach
others how an~ what to study. First he must acquire his
own skill and certainty. In the same way, Guru Nanak
tells us, "First you should meditate. Do not feel
ashamed, just meditate. Because you don't have to do
anything, really. Liberation is attained by itself."
When a boat is at sea, it faces many dangers - it may get
caught in a strong current and sink. But if the boat
reaches the other side successfully, whoever is sitting
in the boat also reaches his destination. It is the same
with this human body. We have to take advantage of it and
do what we have to do with it. So we have to protect it
and take care of it. If it is destroyed before the right
time, our life is wasted. We have to make maximum use of
this body. And how are we to do this? "Do meditation
yourself, and inspire others to meditate, too."
First you meditate, and then when you're strong and firm
in it, you will have no trouble getting others to
meditate, too. That's it - it's not necessary to do
If a man has an orange, he doesn't eat the peel, he eats
the juicy fruit inside it. Yet this whole world is busy
trying to find pleasure in external things. So what does
Guru Maharaj Ji do? He eliminates the anger, malice and
pain that this world is full of. When a man gets bitten
by a poisonous snake, someone must suck the poison from
his body. In the same way, Guru Maharaj Ji comes and
gives satsang, and all the poison inside us is
So remember to practice meditation. My blessings to you
