From the Anurag Sagar (Kabir’s Ocean of Love), and the Kabir Book of Prayers


Kabir Book of Prayers (Sandhya Path): “The Incomprehensible God is present everywhere, and Nad Bind is the way to realize Him. The soul overcomes Yama and, becoming the Beloved Hansa (liberated [bird of heaven]), goes to Satlok. Kabir has explained this gayatri of Sat Purush (the Absolute Being), and whoever recites it always [follows the path described above], will be free of karmas and doubts.”

achint purush hirambar chhāyā, nād bindu doi kartā āyā;
yam so jītā lok pathāyā, surati snehī hans kahāyā;
achint purush ko gāyatrī, dīnh kabīr batāi;
nis din sumiran jo karai, karam bharam mit jāi.

Commentary: Nad or Shabda Yoga is considered to be the way to experience union with God (Sat Purush), allowing the soul to be liberated from the realms of karma and Yama (the god of death) and return to the True, Eternal Heavenly Realm (Sat Lok).

Anurag Sagar: “The souls who have good qualities in them will accept my Shabda. I will liberate all such souls and cutting their bonds, I will take them to Sat Lok. Those whose illusion I will finish will not come into your [Kal’s] traps again.

"HYMN: Making them firm in the true Shabda, I will break all their illusions. And making them recognize your deceptions [Kal’s deceptions], by the Power of Naam I will liberate them all. Those who recognize me and my True Words in their mind, and will focus on the One, such souls will keep their feet on your head and will come to the
immortal plane.”

“The Son of Nad will remain unaffected and he will accept my Word firmly. By the support of Shabda, he will have a radiant way of living, knowledge, understanding and qualities. The unjust Kal [false god of time and illusion] will not devour him.” (Anurag Sagar)

“HYMN: He who gets the Shabda becomes free of the dirt of birth after birth. The jiva who gets the Naam and Simran goes to Sat Lok. The soul who accepts the Shabda of the Master with firmness becomes as valuable as nectar. He goes back to his home with the strength of Sat Naam and his soul sings in peace and happiness. Kal doesn’t stop the soul who has the glory of Sat Naam with her. Even Kal bows down to the soul who has the stamp of Naam on her.” (Anurag Sagar)

NOTE: “NAAM – Name; here used as a synonym for Shabda or Sound Current, the primordial creative Power of God which is also the essence of each individual. In this sense, it is the exact equivalent of the Greek term Logos [English "Word”] as used in the New Testament, particularly in the first chapter of the Gospel of John, where the concept is described in great detail. Naam can also mean “name” in the usual sense, just as “Word” can mean “word” in the usual sense: the Saints use the terms Dhunatmak and Varnatmak to distinguish between the two, the former term referring to the Sound Current or creative force, the latter to names that can be spoken in human speech. The opening passage of Tao Te Ching makes the same distinction.“

NOTE: "SIMRAN Remembrance; in the writings of the Masters, refers to Remembrance of God through the repetition of… [the Name or] Names, as given in the form of a mantra by the Master at the time of initiation. This repetition is done "without tongue” (see next line) – that is, mentally – and is one of the three basic meditation practices of Shabda Yoga. It is also a means of keeping in a state of remembrance at all times even when not sitting in meditation, and a protection against Kal.“ (Anurag Sagar)
