Rai Saligram on Radhasoami, Brahma and the Creation MichaelT...@yahoo.com 9/27/11 3:25 PM

"I give a brief description of the religions of Sants, which is the
only true religion in the world.  It is called Radhasoami Faith.  It
confers true salvation on Jivas (souls).  Beyond all is the Abode of
the Lord Absolute.  He is Param Purush (the Supreme Being).  His Name
is RADHASOAMI.  This is His true and real Name.  It is resounding at
all times in the innermost recesses of all beings.  Whosoever recites
this Name with love shall attain true salvation.  But the knowledge of
the secrets and subtleties of the Faith is essential.  Without it the
task will not be completed.

A current issued forth from the feet of SOAMI.  It is the Prime
Current and the Creator of the entire creation.  The name of that ADI
DHARA (Prime Current) is RADHA.  All functionings are being carried on
by IT.  The Source of Origin or Fountainhead from whom the Prime
Current emanated is ADI SOAMI (Absolute Lord) of all.  Where that
Current halted in its descent, there the creation of Agam Lok was
brought forth.  Agam Lok is a vast expanse and encompasses the whole
creation.  That entire creation below is contained in a small nook of
Agam Lok.

On completion of the creation of Agam Lok, a current issued forth from
there.  It descended and halted, and initiated the creation of Alakh
Lok.  When the sphere of Alakh Lok was formed in the above manner, the
current descended, and brought forth Sat Lok.  Sat Lok is the Dham
(Abode) of Sat Purush, and is populated by Hansas (Radiant Souls, like
swans).  Every Hansa has an island to himself.  They are delighted and
absorbed in the Darshan of Sat Purush.  Up to here is the creation of
Sat (truth) or pure spirit.  There is neither Maya nor cruel Kal.
There is neither any desire nor any work.  All are absorbed in the
darshan of Sat Purush and feed on ambrosia. The denizens there live in
perfect harmony and enjoy rapturous bliss.  There is no trace of pain
and anguish, or Kal and karma.

A considerable period of time passed since the creation of Sat Desh
(Region of Truth and pure bliss).  Then, from the lower portion of Sat
Lok emanated a blue current.  It came down and brought forth an
immense creation.  It was deeply engaged in the seva (service) of
Purush, but inwardly it was cherishing some other desire.  It
disclosed its mind thus, `O Sat Purush!  O Merciful and Giver of all
things!  Grant me the sovereignty of a separate region, and furnish me
with the seed of Surat (souls).  Life in the abode of Yours is not
pleasing and suited to me.  Your region is not agreeable to me.'

Hearing this, Purush replied, `Get out from this place.  You are a
nuisance here.  Go hence and create a dominion for yourself in the
lower part of the pre-creational neutral zone.  Take your seat there
and rule over the dominion to be brought forth by you.'  The name of
that current is Niranjan.  It has all the characteristics of Kal.

Purush produced another current with the yellow hut.  Its name is
Adya.  It was by the order of Purush that this other current was sent
down.  It associated with Niranjan.  In Sunn, they came to be known as
Purush and Prakriti, and in Trikuti, as Maya and Brahm.  They halted
in Sahas-dal-kanwal, from where the three Gunas (qualities) came into
being.  Here Adya assumed the form of Jyoti, and Niranjan assumed a
dark blue complexion.  They first brought forth the Brahm-srishthi,
and then Triloki (three worlds).  Niranjan, then, engaged himself in
dhyan (contemplation) of Sat Purush.  Jyoti took upon herself the
burden after the creation.  The three Gunas or gods became her
assistants.  They brought forth the rest of creation."
