Is there any assembly bigger than UN General Assembly?
United Nations General Assembly looks to be the biggest organization of the people on the earth. Is it really the biggest? No, it is tiny as compared to the true assembly at Eternal Abode i.e. Satlok. Our Supreme Father Kabir Saheb presides over the assembly of the Souls (Swans, Hans) and there is no duality, no old-age or death, no sorrows, no injustice, no complexes. All live together with love and compassion. All respect to one another and pay devotion to the Supreme Being.
Who paves the path to Satlok?
Satguru Rampal Ji Maharaj who is enlightened by his Satguru and The Supreme God Kabir Saheb is the only saint in the universe who bestows the knowledge of Eternal Truth. A true seeker must go to him, prostrate to him, question him with simplicity, and serve him to Take Initiation and True Devotion. The seeker will not only enjoy the worldly pleasures but also ensure his destination in Satlok. He will be free from the vicious cycle of death and rebirth.
