Book Description

About The Book

Spiritualism is the core of every religion, theistic or otherwise. The Sant Nirankaris also pursue a Path leading to spiritual realization, identified in more than one form. For the Sant Nirankaris it means 'Seeing God (or Nirankar) face to face'. There is no compromise, at this point, whatsoever.

For the Sant Nirankaris it is only the corporeal Guru, deified as Satiguru, one who has himself/herself 'Seen God face to face', can show God instantly to those who have taken refuge in him. Seeing is believing. The Satiguru or his/her nominee imparts 'knowledge of Nirankar' called Jñana to an aspirant. The former being charged with an important mission to carry it out coupled with unmixed Grace and Compassion. But, before that the seeker' is placed under obligation to abide by panj pran or Five Vows, throughout his/her sojourn in this world.
