Satsang Commentary by Baba Somanath

"How can we be saved from the difficulties of this world? How can we come out of the wheel of 84 lakh species of life? How can we be freed from the torments of Yama, the angel of Death? The Guru tells us: 'Brother, that Inner Voice is calling you from within, that resounding Shabd is streaming down from on high.' Put your thoughts to one side, turn your attention within and remain all alone. Once you are contained within yourself, focus your attention, and unite it with the Shabd, which is the form of Oneness; then, that Shabd will transport you directly back to its source.

"You don’t need to undergo any extreme hardship. You don’t need to give up eating. You don’t need to abandon your worldly works and relations. You don’t need to run away to some lonely, wilderness spot. Only one thing is required — in the midst of all your worldly activities, practice your meditation with a loving heart. The Lord is already within you, but He is hidden behind the veil of 'I and mine.' Through your loving meditation, remove that veil and meet with the Lord."
