“In the beginning was the WORD. . . and the WORD was God.” Quotations with com-mentary from Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic, Christian and other sacred writings confirm the universality of this spiritual manifestation of God in religious tradition and mystical practices.



CROWN OF LIFE: A Study in Yoga

The ultimate aim of all yoga, at-one-ment with the Supreme Lord, is the focusing point of this study of comparative yoga. All the important forms, ancient and modern, are taken up in turn, their practices explained and discussed, and the extent to which each can lead us toward the final goal is evaluated. The standard for comparison is Surat Shabd Yoga, the Crown of Life, the highest form of Yoga. Religious parallels and various modern movements are cited.



GODMAN:

If there is always at least one authorized spiritual guide on earth at any time, what are the characteristics which will enable the honest seeker to distinguish him from those who are not competent?

THE WHEEL OF LIFE & THE MYSTERY OF DEATH:

Originally two separate books, now bound in one volume. When you sow a seed, it will bring forth similar seeds. There is action-reaction, then again a reaction; there is no end to it. The meaning of one’s life on earth and the Law of Karma [the law of action and reaction] are examined in The Wheel of Life. In The Mystery of Death: They [the Masters] point out and demonstrate to us the way to conquer the seemingly invincible and terrifying death and thus become fear-free….and ultimately rise to realize our divine nature and see oneness in God – the All-consciousness and bliss.



MORNING TALKS:

A transcription of a series of talks given by Kirpal Singh between October 1967 and January 1969. “My new book Morning Talks,...which covers most aspects of Spiri-tuality, is a God-given textbook to which all initiates should constantly refer, to see how they are measuring up to the standards required for success in their man-making. I cannot stress sufficiently the importance of reading this book, digesting its contents, and then living up to what it contains.”



THE NIGHT IS A JUNGLE: 14 talks from Sat Sandesh

The first four talks cover the whole range of spiritual teachings. The following talks explain in detail the necessity of a Master, the role of the Master on Earth, the changes that must take place within the disciple, and how to overcome difficulties

on the Path. The final discourse explains how the busy householder can reach the final goal without leaving his work and family by making the nights his “jungle”.

„…I remember that the First Unity of Man Conference was scheduled to start on 2nd Februrary 1974. Only five days before, Master ordered me to produce a souve-nir program, explaining that it must be ready by the se-cond day of the Conference as the Prime Minister Mrs. Gandhi, was to attend. You can imagine that was a very difficult order to execute; there were no articles ready and no photographs availablelet alone the blocks-and Master wanted it ready in five days! I know it was only His special blessing that enabled us to get two hun-dred and fifty copies ready in time. When I took this copies to the Master He was very much pleased to see Hazur´s Photo on the cover...”
