Simran! Excerpted from a Satsang Discourse Titled, “You Should Have One Wish — One Aspiration — And That Aspiration Should Be To Pursue Naam”, by Baba Ram Singh

Kabir Sahib says, “In that happiness, or in that contentment, if we are forgetting Simran and we are forgetting God Almighty, then let stones and boulders fall on such happiness and such contentment.”

That poverty is much better where, in that poverty, we are able to remember God Almighty and we are able to do Simran of God Almighty.

Kabir satguru naam se,
Koti bigan tar jaay,
Kabir satguru naam se,
Koti bigan tar jaay,
Raayi samaan basandara,
Ketha kaat jaraay.

Kabir Sahib says, “The Naam that has been given to us is of very high value. And if we do that Simran for one hour every day and we are connected with Naam, then a lot of impediments, a lot of difficult, that we are likely to face because of our karmas are automatically absorbed by the Grace of the Master — and that helps us.”

By doing Simran, we are able to reduce the burden of karmas and, as a result, at the time of our death, when we are leaving this body, we do not have to suffer so much.

If we are not doing our Simran and we’re not redeeming those deeds, then those deeds collect and, as a result, ultimately, we have to redeem those deeds by means of a sickness or an ailment, or by means of some sadness or some loss. So, such things, such events, then happen as a result of the build up of such karmas.

The Simran that has been given to us is of a very high order. And where we do Simran, even the place gets purified. At that place, there are no bad influences. No mystical powers also work on you. Neither do the angels of death come and disturb you. Neither does Kal come. And neither does Maha Kal come. Only the Master comes at the time of death of that satsangi.

So, even if we are connected a little with Naam — with Simran — then the Masters shower Their Grace. They are Dayal and They are very gracious and They come at the time of death to take us.

Therefore, we should try to do Simran regularly. And, by that, we are able to gradually reduce the burden of karmas and, at the time of death also, it becomes easier for the Master to take us.

Lene ko satnaam hai,
Dene ko an daan,
Lene ko satnaam hai,
Dene ko an daan,
Tharane ko adheenatha,
Bhudan ko abhimaan.

Kabir Sahib says, “If you have to take something, then take Sat Naam. And, if you have to give something, then you can donate food to someone. Because, by doing so, you will be able to help yourself and you will get the satisfaction of that selfless donation that you are doing.”

Kabir Sahib says, “The Naam helps you steer through this ocean of life and death. It helps you steer through this life and takes you back to God Almighty. And if you want to stay afloat here, you have to be generous and you have to be selfless. So, that will keep you afloat. And if you want to drown in this ocean of life and death, then it will be because of your ego.

So, if you have ego, that will be the cause of your drowning. And if you are selfless and you are generous, that will be the cause for you to stay afloat.”
