Know The Way to Bar All Storms/Cyclones
Have you ever wondered why you are suffering so much in life, sometimes in the form of natural calamities like storms, cyclones , landslides, earthquakes and now pandemic COVID19.
Safety Lies in The Form of True Worship
This is almost the severe time for all kinds of calamities. Supreme God Kabir Ji has stated that – ‘O Kaal! You have created a big illusion. You will inflict immense atrocities on the living beings in the three yugas (Satyug, Tretayug and Dwaparyug). As you are saying, you had made a request to me; I accepted it. You have deceived me, but when the fourth yug, Kalyug, will come, then I will send my ‘Ansh’, that is, I will send a Soul who is recipient of My favour. O Kaal! He will eliminate all your traps, that is, wrong knowledge and way of worship based on ignorance, with Satya Shabd (true mantra) and true knowledge. At that time, the entire world will become initiated by taking initiation from That Saint of Mine.’
‘Until that time comes, that is, until 5505 (five thousand five hundred five) years of Kalyug pass, Satyanaam, Mool Naam (Saar Shabd) and Mool Gyan (Tatvgyan = true spiritual knowledge) do not have to be revealed. But when 5505 years of Kalyug would have completed, then My knowledge will be discussed excessively in every home, and Satyanaam and Saar Shabd would be granted to all the initiates.
This statement that I am making; these words of Mine will prove to be true at the time when 5505 (five thousand five hundred five) years of Kalyug would have completed. When these many years of Kalyug would have passed, then all the human beings will become aware of that Supreme place of Param Purush i.e. Satya Purush (Eternal God) about which it is mentioned in Gita Chapter 15 Verse 4 that – after finding a Tatvadarshi Saint, worshippers never return to the world. The Supreme God from whom the world-like tree has originated, that is, the Supreme God who has created nature, worship that Supreme God.’ We can only be saved when the whole world will take the shelter of the Saviour Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj ji.
