Love is at the core of true faith

Every Sunday I and my wife, Urmil Singla visit church (dera) to attend a satsang (gathering of people) in Surrey. Every time different topics are discussed by different teachers (pathies). It’s a one-hour lesson – half in English, half in Punjabi. It teaches us so many methods to please God, but the main thing is “simpan” (repetition and remembrance).

Men are men, whether of the East or of the West, and are all one. No one belongs to a higher caste as there is atma (soul) in each of them, and that is a particle of the Lord. Kabir says: “The soul is a particle of Rama (God)”.

God is never pleased with one who injures the feelings of others. Even though he may perform thousands of rituals and worship. He may observe thousands of fasts and say prayers thousands of times in each fast and may remember Him for thousands of nights; all these are not acceptable to the Lord if he injures the feelings of anyone. You may drink wine, set fire to a holy place, burn the holy book, or whatever, but don’t injure the feelings of another man.

Therefore, unless you make man happy, you can’t win grace of the Lord. If you want the Lord to shower his grace on you, then you should do good to his creatures. We have no right to call the Lord our Father unless we are in a position to call all men our brothers.

We earn health and wealth in life, but at the end we leave all these things behind. Nothing will go with us. So please love all the creatures of the creator, be they human beings or animals.
