The year 2014 embodies the vibration of the Seventh Master, Guru Har Rai. The Seventh Body, known as the Auric body, carries the qualities of compassion, kindness, elevation of the self and others, as exemplified by Guru Har Rai. In 2014, our newsletter explores the topic of Guru Har Rai: Teacher of Compassion.
One of the five sutras of the Aquarian Age is “understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times.” In these pivotal years of transition into the Aquarian Age, compassion rules. When we understand through compassion, we elevate, give hope to others, see our way through our own difficulties. The Siri Singh Sahib said: “Religion is to bring reality into practice…the test to be religious is to see compassion at the moment when you cannot see it and to act compassionately when it is impossible to act like that.”
For the Spring 2014 issue we asked our Ministers: “How do you—in your life and ministry—define the act of compassion?” We invited them to share personal stories or inspiration from the life of Guru Har Rai to explore the meaning of compassion. Please enjoy these wonderful essays from our global ministry.
“A person who has compassion, God loves that person so much. Everywhere else, humankind has to surrender to nature to reach God, but when a person of God surrenders him or herself to compassion, and every life part is guided by that power, that person is always highly enlightened, elevated and exalted.”—The Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji
