The Prayer in the Bhajans

The Prayer in the Bhajans

a talk given March 24, 1989, in Rajasthan

I am very grateful to our Beloved Lord Kirpal who gave us this very simple way of making the request and making the prayers in front of Him through singing the bhajans.

You know that the creation of the Negative Power is such that nobody knows for what bad karma he is getting the reward and is enjoying comforts. Because if we had known that because of such and such bad karma we are getting this suffering and if we had known that because of a certain good karma we are enjoying the reward and comfort in this world, we would always have done the good karmas, and would never have gone through the bad karmas. But such is the creation of the Negative Power, that we are not aware of our past karmas and that is why we suffer and enjoy the comforts.

Making a prayer to His Beloved Master, Swami Ji Maharaj said, "O Beloved Lord, when we say that we have come into Your refuge, or we have surrendered ourselves to You, we say that only physically, only outwardly, because mind is such an obstinate one that it does not want to say that from within. If somehow we can make our mind say that to our Beloved Lord, then our goal could be achieved." Fortunate are the souls who, sitting in front of the Beloved Lord and praying to the Shabd Form of the Master, are able to sing the qualities of the Master, and are able to confess their bad qualities, their faults through the bhajans written by the Perfect Masters. Those souls are very fortunate who are able to make this prayer and sing the bhajans to the Master, and are able to tell the Master, "O Lord, we are full of bad qualities and we have been suffering a great deal because the beating of the karmas is very heavy. And now, finally, when we have taken refuge at Your Feet, when we have come to Your Feet, please shower grace on us."

So dear ones, those who are able to sing the bhajans like this, they are very fortunate ones; and since our Beloved Lord is very gracious, when we are making such a prayer in front of Him, I am sure that He will definitely forgive us because we are counting our faults one by one and we are asking for His forgiveness.
