Forsooth Human Life Meant to Do Good With Everyone
Kamal Khan did sheer hard work in his entire life, guiding everyone and making them aware about the incidents that happen around. But he remained unaware about the actual aim of life.
Unfortunately he/others remained ignorant of their purpose of human life. People forget the main aim of life and are busy earning livelihood, getting name and fame but at the end without realizing the truth, they die. Kabir Sahib Ji explained this in one of His couplets-
Kabir, Nahin bharosa dehi ka,
Vinash jaay chhin maahin |
Swaans-uswaans mein naam japo,
Aur yatn kuchh naahin ||
Kabir, Swaans-uswaans mein naam japo,
Vyartha swaans mat kho |
Na jaane is swaans ka,
Aavan ho ke na hoye ||
What Is the True Intent of Life?
It cannot be denied that to fulfill all basic necessities of life, one has to earn bread but in the entire process of livelihood everyone forgets the main agenda of life that is to attain Moksha by reciting True Mantras.
In this short human life, due to the absence of knowledge about the soul (Aatm Gyan), by accumulating numerous sins you destroy your human life and die. The men of this world can tell you the method of earning money, but except Gurudev Ji nobody will impart you the knowledge about the soul (Aatm Gyan) i.e. the information about the place from where has the soul come? What is the main goal of a human being? Without acquiring a Guru i.e. without taking Naam Diksha (spiritual instruction), a soul’s human birth is destroyed.
Nobody will tell this except a Guru. Even if you become a King of the entire earth, you will get an animal birth in future. The cycle of birth and death cannot end without the knowledge imparted by Guru ji and the initiation mantra (naam).
Who Provides Authentic Mantras at Present?
At present, there is only one Saint Who provides authentic Mantras mentioned in our Scriptures and He is Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj. One cannot die untimely if one takes Naam from Him. The power of True devotion not only heals several incurable diseases but also increases the time span of a devotee.
Only by taking refuge in Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj, one can receive the benefits of living a longer and healthy life. Get rid of the fear of an uncertain future by adopting the True Way of Worship of God provided by Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj.
