Recognizing the Value of This Human Life Is True Humanitarianism
True humanitarianism lies in understanding the first and foremost goal of this human life which is the attainment of salvation by worshiping Supreme God Kabir. Amidst such advance growth of science and technology the topic of worshiping God seems to be useless and off the tracks but contrary to this it is actually not and the amount of degradation we are experiencing presently is just because we have forgotten God Kabir. And, we have handovered our destinies to Satan (Kaal Brahm) by choice which is our biggest mistake. The place where we are living belongs to Satan and everything here except Supreme God Kabir is Satan himself who is trying his hardest to keep us away from God Kabir.
To take us out from this cage full of problems and to take us to the Land of Immortality Satlok (our Native Abode), Supreme God Kabir descends Himself to this planet every now and then from Satlok by taking different forms and grant His pious souls the path to attain salvation by imparting His True Spiritual Knowledge. Regarding the theme of this World Humanitarian Day 2021, all the five elements of nature are the by-products of the creations of Supreme God Kabir. And scientists keep on finding things which are already being created and discovered by Supreme God Kabir. Therefore useless. Saint Garibdasji says:
Garib, Chand soor paani pavan, Dharni dhaul aakash |
Paanch tatv haziri khade, Khijamtidar khawas ||
Who Can Help Us All the Time?
It is rightly said that where man loses hope God generates scope. Presently Supreme God Kabir has descended Himself in the form of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj so as to let us know about the cruelty of this cage of Satan. And further educate us about how to take refuge in that everlasting place Satlok where everything is immortal including us. As only Supreme God Kabir can correctly reveal the creation of the universe created by Him hence He knows everything and everyone from every in and out. So we cannot be smarter than God in any case. Hence we should surrender to God upon recognizing Him.
For recognizing Supreme God Kabir, one should go through the spiritual sermons of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj as He is proving via His discourses and divine acts that God favours His righteous soul and this is the prime time to become a righteous soul. Even messages of these sorts can be a medium taken up by God Kabir so as to deliver His message to you, asking you to adopt the True Path of Worship. Hence one should not be late in taking Naam Diksha (initiation) from Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj because when God calls it can’t be purposeless. Kabir Saheb says:
Manush janam paye kar jo nahi rate Hari Naam |
Jaise kuua jal bina fir banwaya kya kaam ||
On this world humanitarian day we have to know about the real humanity by real spiritual knowledge of Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj.
