IMAGE Above: Sant Dadu Dayal
The Radiant Form is the Key to Exploring Inner Space.
The Inner Satguru: God Has Made the Reflection of His Form Available in All Worlds.
The Formless One Assumes Forms In Order to Communicate With Souls in All Realms and Escorts Them Back to the Original Abode of the Beloved.
The Outer Master Guides Souls to the Inner Master. The Inner Master (Satguru) Guides Souls Back to God (the Lord of the Soul, Radhasoami).
The following is from, "The Discourses of Maharaj Saheb".
The whole truth of it is that one's task will be accomplished when the Fascinating Form of Satguru becomes manifest within one's heart. In the mean time, one will occasionally hear the inner Sound (Shabd) and get bliss also. But the Inner Portal will one penetrate only when the Fascinating Form of Satguru becomes manifest. Satguru's form is the key, as it were, to open the inner lock.
"If you do not become oblivious of the key provided by the Guru, you will open the inner lock in a moment." (Swami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Poetry, Book Two)
Radhasoami Dayal [the Merciful Lord of the Soul] has graciously assumed human form to grant redemption to the entire humanity, nay, He has made the reflection of His Form available even at the lower chakras.
"Still lower down, He assumed the dark bluish form of Niranjan. Such is my Beloved Radhasoami. Descending to the heart centre, He became subject to desires. Such is my Beloved Radhasoami. He, however, reduces the evil tendencies of Indri-centres (lower centres pertaining to senses). Such is my Beloved Radhasoami." (Soami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Poetry, Book One)
Question: What is the Form of Satguru like?
Answer: The Form of Sant Sat Guru is highly Refulgent and most exalted.
"I behold the Majestic Form of Guru. I look intently into His eyes which are the windows leading to the Highest Region." (Soami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Poetry, Book Two)
"Full of love and affection, serve the Formless* with your mind and soul. If you worship the Form*, then the Saint is the manifest God, O Dadu." (Sant Dadu Dayal)
*Formless: Nirguna Bhakti: serving the Formless God -- Ultimate Reality, all-spirit, timeless, and truth, beyond what the mind can conceive, beyond all names, forms, and concepts to be attached to;
**Form: Sarguna Bhakti: being devoted to divinity assuming or working through Forms (Sant Satgurus, Living Masters) for the purpose of communicating with souls at various levels of creation or states of consciousness;
"Sat Purush [the True, Eternal, Timeless, Original Being] sends souls to the world to liberate the living beings from the clutches of Kal [god of death, the lord of illusion]." (Sant Dariya Sahib website)
