Spiritual Path to Awaken your Life
Every Human Being on this Earth should know the true path of Worship of Supreme God as prescribed in our Holy Scriptures. Only ‘Satbhakti’ can help in achieving our dreams and complete Salvation.
In today’s era, Only Saint Rampal Ji is the one Complete Saint providing scripture based Worship of God/Allah/Rab/Khuda Kabir.
God Kabir in his Vaani says,
Kabir, soya to nishfal gayaa, jaago so fal ley |
Sahib hakk na raakhsi, jab maangae tab dey ||
It means those people who are sleeping in the slumber of affection and ignorance, that is, those who do not do bhakti, they wasted their lives, and those, who on listening to the viewpoints of saints woke up from the slumber of affection and ignorance, obtain the fruit of bhakti. God does not keep anyone’s share. Whenever you will ask, He will provide the wealth of Bhakti to you. He will save you from a mishap.
