Since time immemorial, man is involved in the search of supreme peace, happiness and immortality. He has been trying according to his capability, but this desire of his is not being fulfilled. This is so because he does not have complete knowledge about the path which will fulfil his desire. All living beings want that there should be no need to work, they should get delicious food to eat, should get beautiful clothes to wear, there should be magnificent palaces to live in, beautiful parks to roam in, melodious music for entertainment, should dance-sing, play-jump, should enjoy without any restraint, and should never fall ill, should never grow old, and should never die etc-etc, but the world in which we are living, here neither is this visible anywhere, nor is possible. Because this world/lok is destructible and every thing of this lok is perishable and the king of this lok is Brahm-Kaal who eats one lakh immaterial (subtle/sukshm) bodies of human beings which are inside the material bodies of the human beings. He has captured all the living beings in the cage of the three loks by entangling them in the net of karm-bharm and sins-virtues. God Kabir says that —
कबीर, तीन लोक पिंजरा भया, पाप पुण्य दो जाल।
सभी जीव भोजन भये, एक खाने वाला काल।।
गरीब, एक पापी एक पुन्यी आया, एक है सूम दलेल रे।
बिना भजन कोई काम नहीं आवै, सब है जम की जेल रे।।
[Karam means – the principle “As you do, so you will get”. Bharm means – Doubtful knowledge which Kaal Brahm has given in Vedas and Gita. For example, in Gita Adhyay 15 Shlok 1 to 4 and Adhyay 4 Shlok 31, 32, 34 and in Adhyay 7 Shlok 18, Brahm, the giver of the knowledge of Gita, is saying that, this is a world-like tree. Its roots are above and the three gunas-like branches are below. He, who gives full information about this world-like tree, is a Purna Sant i.e. a Tattavdarshi Sant. Like, which God is the trunk, which God is the bigger branch and which gods are the three smaller branches? Here in this discussion i.e. what I am telling you in the knowledge of Gita, I do not have any knowledge of the creation of the world because I do not know about its beginning and the end. Therefore, search for some Tattavdarshi sant. By doing sadhna according to the way of worship directed by that Tattavdarshi Sant, one should search for that Supreme State and God, having gone where, worshippers do not return to this world i.e. they attain complete salvation/liberation. The Supreme God from whom this world-like tree has extended i.e. the God who has created this nature, one should only worship Him. I (the giver of the knowledge of Gita) also am in the refuge of that same Supreme God. In Gita Adhyay 3 Shlok 31-32, has said that the knowledge which I have given in Gita is my opinion (viewpoint). Although it is not complete, even then it is superior to the other sadhnas which are against the injunctions of the scriptures. He, who does not do sadhna according to my opinion, is making a futile effort. In comparison to the benefit obtained from the worship of the Supreme God, in Gita Adhyay 7 Shlok 18, the giver of the knowledge of Gita, Brahm, has described the benefit obtained from his sadhna also as (anuttam) bad. In this way, the knowledge given by Kaal Brahm is misleading.] He (Kaal) does not want any living being to escape from this cage-like imprisonment. He also does not want a soul to know about its own home Satlok. Therefore he has misled every living being by his Trigunmayi Maya (Maya of the three gunas). Then wherefrom has this aforesaid desire arisen in man? Here there is nothing like this. Here we all have to die, all are distressed and disturbed. The state which we want to attain here, we used to live in such a state in our real home Satlok. We came here and got trapped in Kaal Brahm’s lok and forgot the way to our real home. Kabir Sahib says that —
इच्छा रूपी खेलन आया, तातैं सुख सागर नहीं पाया।
There is not even a trace of peace and comfort in this Kaal Brahm’s lok. The vices of lust, anger, greed, affection, arrogance, love-hatred, joy-sorrow, profit-loss, pride-honour, born from Trigunmayi Maya, are troubling every living being. Here one living being kills and eats another living being, exploits, deprives one of honour, robs wealth and snatches away peace. Here there is fire blazing everywhere. Even if you want to live in peace, others will not let you live. Even when you do not want, a thief commits a theft, a robber commits robbery, an accident takes place, the crop of a farmer gets destroyed, the business of a business man collapses, the kingdom of a king is taken away, a healthy body gets affected by a disease; in other words, there is nothing safe here. The kingdoms of the kings, the honour of the respected, the wealth of the wealthy, the strength of the powerful, and even our bodies are suddenly snatched away. Young sons and daughters die in front of the parents, parents die leaving their breast-feeding children crying and sobbing, young sisters become widows and we are compelled to bear the mountains of sorrows. Just think that is this place worthy of living in? But we are helplessly living here because we do not see any way to get out of this cage of Kaal, and we have become used to causing grief to others and of suffering grief. Because we have forgotten our real home. That supreme peace and happiness, instead of being here, is present in our real home Satlok, where there is no birth, no death, no old age, no sorrows, no unrest, no disease, no give and take of money, do not have to pay any electricity bill, nor have to buy any means of entertainment. There everything is provided freeof- cost by God and is indestructible. There is evidence in the speech of Bandichhor Garibdas Ji Maharaj that —
बिन ही मुख सारंग राग सुन, बिन ही तंती तार। बिना सुर अलगोजे बजैं, नगर नांच घुमार।।
घण्टा बाजै ताल नग, मंजीरे डफ झांझ। मूरली मधूर सुहावनी, निसबासर और सांझ।।
बीन बिहंगम बाजहिं, तरक तम्बूरे तीर। राग खण्ड नहीं होत है, बंध्या रहत समीर।।
तरक नहीं तोरा नहीं, नांही कशीस कबाब। अमृत प्याले मध पीवैं, ज्यों भाटी चवैं शराब।।
मतवाले मस्तानपुर, गली-2 गुलजार। संख शराबी फिरत हैं, चलो तास बजार।।
संख-संख पत्नी नाचैं, गावैं शब्द सुभान। चंद्र बदन सूरजमुखी, नांही मान गुमान।।
संख हिंडोले नूर नग, झूलैं संत हजूर। तख्त धनी के पास कर, ऐसा मुलक जहूर।।
नदी नाव नाले बगैं, छूटैं फुहारे सुन्न। भरे होद सरवर सदा, नहीं पाप नहीं पुण्य।।
ना कोई भिक्षुक दान दे, ना कोई हार व्यवहार। ना कोई जन्मे मरे, ऐसा देश हमार।।
जहां संखों लहर मेहर की उपजैं, कहर जहां नहीं कोई। दासगरीब अचल अविनाशी, सुख का सागर सोई।।
In Satlok, there is constant supreme peace and happiness. Until we go to Satlok, we cannot attain supreme peace, happiness and immortality. It is only possible to go to Satlok if we take updesh (initiation/spiritual instruction) from a Purna Saint (Complete Saint) and keep doing bhakti of Supreme God throughout our life. The message which we want to convey through this book, in that, without slandering any god-goddess and religion, we have tried to tell the true path of bhakti by enlightening the profound hidden secret in all the holy religious texts, which the contemporary prominent saints, Mahants and Aacharya gurus could not understand. Kabir Sahib says in His speech that
वेद कतेब झूठे ना भाई, झूठे हैं सो समझे नांही।
As a result of which the Bhakt community is suffering an infinite loss. Everyone does sadhna opposite to scriptures based on one’s own inference and as directed by the gurus. As a result of which neither do they get mental peace, nor physical comforts, nor get any profit at home or in business. Neither do they meet and see God, nor attain liberation/salvation, and to know that how can one achieve all these comforts and that who am I, from where have I come, why do I take birth, why do I die and why do I suffer?, after all, who is getting all this done and who is the Supreme God (Parmeshwar), how does He look like, where is He, and how will He be attained, and who is the mother and father of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiv, and how can we become free from Kaal Brahm’s jail and go back to our real home (Satlok). All this has been presented by means of a book Gyan Ganga so that by reading it the welfare of a common devout soul can become possible. This book is a collection of the discourses of Satguru Rampal Ji Maharaj which is based on facts. We are fully confident that a reader who will read this with interest and in an unbiased manner and will follow it, his welfare is possible.
"आत्म प्राण उद्धार हीं, ऐसा धर्म नहीं और।
कोटि अध्वमेघ यज्ञ, सकल समाना भौर।।"
Meaning: - If the self-welfare of one soul is brought about by engaging him on the path of true bhakti, then one gets the fruit of crore Ashwamegh yagyas and there is no meritorious act (Dharm) equivalent to that. Kabir Sahib says that this knowledge of mine is such that if one is a knowledgeable person, then on hearing this, will absorb this in his heart, and if someone is foolish, then it is out of his understanding.
"कबीर, ज्ञानी हो तो हृदय लगाई, मूर्ख हो तो गम ना पाई"
