11. Definition of Sant Sat Guru

19. A Sant Sat Guru is one who has either descended directly from the highest division or reached that quarter by practice of Surat-Sahbd-Yog under the immediate direction of the former.

12. Definition of Sadh Guru and Satsangi

20. A Sadhguru is one who has descended from the top of the second grand division or reached it by the practice of Surat-Shabd-Yog under the direction of the Sant Sat Guru and is proceeding towards the highest division. A Satsangi is one who having full belief and confidence in Sant Sat Guru and His words is practicing Surat-Shabd-Yog under His immediate direction and having traversed some distance is pushing on upwards.

13. The Supreme Being is both personal and impersonal

21. The name of the Supreme Being is Radhasoami. He is impersonal, but personal in the second and third divisions and when He manifests Himself through humanity as Sant Sat Guru. His attributes are mostly met with in the Sant Sat Guru, who might be called an Incarnation of Sat Purush Radhasoami, the True Supreme Being.

14. Definition of true salvation

22. The deliverance of spirit entity from bondage of body, senses and mind, and its gradual ascension and eventual entrance into the first or highest division by the practice of Surat-Shabd-Yog is perfect salvation according to Radhasoami Faith. At present the Surat or Spirit entity which is a particle of the Supreme Being or a ray from the Supreme Sun or a drop from the Supreme Ocean of Spirit, having descended from the highest or first region has become encased in material coverings, and in a manner intermingled with matter and is in this, the third region, subject to the forces or carnal desires and passions resulting from such mixture.

15. Spirit entity, subject to birth and rebirth in the second and third degrees

23. In its descent from the highest region the spirit entity has become enveloped in various coverings of matter or bodies, and so long as it remains in the second and third division where matter exists, it can not be freed from re-birth in the lower or higher regions. It is only in the first or highest division where there is no matter, that there is no re-birth.

16. Radhasoami Faith not built on scriptures of any religion – The efficacy of Surat-Shabd-Yog testified by inspired religions

24. Radhasoami Faith is not built on the basis of scriptures appertaining to Hindu or any other religion, but on the precepts or instructions of the Supreme Being Himself, who appeared on this earth in human form and graciously performed the functions of a Sant Sat Guru for the benefit of degraded humanity. The original books of all inspired religions, however, bear sufficient testimony to the superiority and efficacy of the Surat-Shabd-Yog as the only means and the only highway to the highest heaven.

17. The internal sound current is the means of raising spirit, difference of Dhwanyatmak and Varnatmak names. The power of Sound Current or Shabd

25.The sound heard internally is a current which has originally emanated from the Supreme Being and is the means not only of concentrating the will but also of raising spirit entity to the source from which it emanated.

26. At the time of initiation, a novice receives instructions as regards the particulars of Shabd of each sub-division by means of which one has to raise one’s spirit entity upwards. This is called Dhwanyatmak name, while that uttered by tongue is called Varnatmak name.

27. It must be clearly understood that by Shabd or ‘Word’ or internal voice is meant the spirit or life current which enlivens every part of the body and is the main principle or essence which supports life in and gives activity to every being or body in the whole creation or universe. Even in this world everything is done by means of word or sound, and all affairs are managed through its instrumentality, as one speaks or gives order and the other attends to it or carries it out into execution. The instantaneous effect of word or sound on human beings and even on animals is so apparent in everyday experience of our life that it needs no further explanation.

18. The state of Spirit entity in the third degree – The change of its powers with the change of its spheres

28. At present the spirit entity of a human being is residing in the third or material-spiritual region, and has, therefore, to do all the work here by means of the senses and the mind which are mediums between it and the material objects, and consequently, as a natural result, its power has become quite hampered. But as soon as it begins to ascend, the powers, which are now lying dormant, become active and the spirit entity acquires ultra-material or higher power.

19. The method of taking back the Spirit entity to its original source is to ride the sound current

29.The method for taking back the spirit entity to its Supreme Source is first to concentrate at the focus of eyes the spirit entity and mind which are defused in our body and in a manner tied to external objects by desires and passions, and next to commence its journey homewards by attending to the internal sound, or in other words, by riding the life or sound current which has originally emanated from the Supreme source.

30. The current which has been instrumental in having brought it down here must naturally be the only ‘True Path’ for its return to the original source, and whoever finds this current is on the path of emancipation. This current which is the spirit and life current is called in the Radhasoami Faith, "Sound’ or ‘Word" or Holy Name.

20. Testimony of sound as given by other religions

31. Other extant religions also give distant allusions to this life or "Sound Current"; for instance in the Bible, we find, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." The Vedas also have ‘Nad’ or Word, the ‘Pranav’ or ‘Om’ and so others.
