How A Formless God Communicates With Souls Living in Worlds of Form
 

 
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)

Baba Faqir Rumi: The Disciple is Genuine Even If the Guru is Not

Below are some delightful and insightful words from Rumi about how, in a world of illusion and pretense, the genuine spiritual seeker will, despite some detours along the way, ultimately reach their destination.

"It takes a long time for the hidden mystery (reality) of a man to become more or less evident so that we may know whether under the wall of his body there is a (spiritual) treasure, or there are holes of ants (of carnal hankerings), snakes (of envy and spite) and dragons (of temptations, attachments, hubris, wiles and guiles). And by the time the seeker discovers that he is an imposter, it is too late to make amends.

"Sometimes, though rarely, a seeker sincerely trusting a meretricious imposter and believing that he is someone in particular, by means of his trust, attains to a spiritual state which the imposter has not even dreamt of.....

"Sometimes, though rarely, the disciple (of a false guru) because of the sincerity of his quest for God may derive spiritual benefit even from that false guru (literally, 'the falsehood of the imposter may turn out to be profitable to the seeker.'). Due to his own honest intention he ascends to a higher spiritual region (not because of but despite the pretender whom he imagined to be the 'soul' but who turned out to be only 'flesh'.) Such a sincere seeker may even have spiritual experiences which his worthless guru may not have had in ages."

-- Mathnawi of Rumi, Volume I, M.G. Gupta Translation, M.G. Publishers, Agra
