From “Philosophy of the Masters (Gurmat Sidhant)” by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj - Love (Prem), Part 2 of 2

From “Philosophy of the Masters (Gurmat Sidhant)” by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj - Love (Prem), Part 2 of 2

There are many valuable gifts of God in this world, such as wealth, beauty, strength, power, good health, knowledge, fluency of speech and worship. Man is naturally fond of these things, but they are all lacking in something. Wealth makes a man proud. Beauty makes him blind. Power and good health are the cause of cruelty and arrogance. Knowledge brings in selfish ideas. Intellect is a delusion, and to indulge in clever speeches leads one to falsehood and to garrulous talk. External religious observances and worship are the cause of narrow-mindedness and bigotry. Better than all these gifts of God is the gift of love.

From “Philosophy of the Masters (Gurmat Sidhant)” by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj - Love (Prem), Part 1 of 2

It is not easy to understand love because its true nature and greatness cannot be described in words. It is a pure and delicate feeling or emotion which can be experienced only by one who is love. It is beyond the capacity of the tongue or the pen to describe it in any human language. Actually, love is another name for God. And just as it is not possible to reduce God’s greatness to mortal dimensions, so also is it not possible to describe adequately in any words known to man, the grandeur and subline appearance of love. Nowadays, people misunderstand the meaning of love. The spirit and the meaning of love can be ascertained only from a true lover, and its glow or spark can only be seen on his countenance.

Selection from Zoroastrianism's Sacred Menog-i Khrad: Chapters 14- 26, Part 2 of 2

The sage asked the spirit of wisdom thus: "Which is that pleasure which is worse than unhappiness? Wherefore do people consider these very little, these four things which it is necessary for them to consider more, as warnings, the changeableness of the things of the worldly existence, the death of the body, the account of the soul, and the fear of hell? Is living in fear and falsehood worse, or death? For kings which is the one thing more advantageous, and which the more injurious? Is it possible to provide, for one's own hand, the treasure and wealth of the worldly existence through exertion, or not? Is it possible to contend with destiny through wisdom and knowledge, or not?"

Selection from Zoroastrianism's Sacred Menog-i Khrad: Chapters 14- 26, Part 1 of 2

Zoroaster was a prophet who lived in ancient Iran around 1800 BC. The teachings that emerged from His visions of God have become known as Zoroastrianism. Zoroastrian theology’s main tenets include the existence of one God and the personal happiness or reward that is the natural outcome of using one’s free will to formulate good thoughts, good words and good deeds. Respecting all life, Zoroaster was Himself a pure vegetarian and forbade all animal sacrifice. His universal philosophy is believed to have influenced Greek thought and major revealed religions of the world.

From the Holy Bible: The Book of Job – Chapters 7-12, and Excerpt from Chapter 2, Part 2 of 2

“Yet if you devote your heart to Him and stretch out your hands to Him, if you put away the sin that is in your hand and allow no evil to dwell in your tent, then, free of fault, you will lift up your face; you will stand firm and without fear. You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by. Life will be brighter than noonday, and darkness will become like morning. You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor."

From the Holy Bible: The Book of Job – Chapters 7-12, and Excerpt from Chapter 2, Part 1 of 2

The Book of Job is the first poetic book in the Old Testament of the Christian Holy Bible. One of its main themes is God’s justice and why the righteous at times appear to be punished. Job was a wealthy and pious man who always avoided evil. One day, Satan asked God if he could test Job’s goodness, arguing that Job was good only because God blessed him abundantly. In the following excerpts, Job suffers greatly; his faith is tested. But in the end, he resolves to continue pursuing wisdom by fearing God and choosing righteousness.

Selection from Leo Tolstoy's Book “Bethink Yourselves!” Chapter 10

Selection from Leo Tolstoy's Book “Bethink Yourselves!” Chapter 10

“Bethink Yourselves!” by Leo Tolstoy was written in a time of war. The short book was a persuasive appeal for peace, making one see the value in not fighting and causing suffering to humankind. “Love your enemies, and ye will have none,” Only such people realizing the kingdom of God in themselves, in their souls, will establish, without directly aiming at this purpose, that external Kingdom of God which every human soul is longing for. So that the only certain means of man’s salvation consists merely in ceasing to do that which hinders men from assimilating the true religion which already lives in their consciousness.

Selection from Leo Tolstoy's Book “Bethink Yourselves!” Chapter 9

A religious man in fulfilling the work prescribed to him he God, without arguing as to what precisely will come of that work. A religious man acts thus and not otherwise, not because he desires to act thus, nor because it is advantageous to himself or to other men, but because, believing that his life is in the hands of God, he cannot act otherwise. In this lies the distinction of the activity of religious men; and therefore it is that the salvation of men from the calamities which they inflict upon themselves can be realized only in that degree in which they are guided in their lives, not by advantage nor arguments, but by religious consciousness.

Selection from the Sangha of Bhikkhu Buddhist Association's Book of Truth, Part 2 of 2

Justice is also the Truth, or the harmonious Middle Way of the universe. Justice means no more, no less, very fair and impartial. It’s the same with the elements of earth, water, fire and wind. Although things keep changing, the elements themselves stay the same, nothing is ever lost. It’s like the past, future and present; they’re not different. All three times exist in every moment. Since the ancient times, activity and inactivity are not two things. Many people believe that there is no justice, so they freely commit evil deeds and thereby beget calamities. Justice is a power, an authority. Justice is like the shadow following a person. So the higher one climbs, the harder one falls, and the deceitful wouldn’t enjoy peace long.
