The year 2014 embodies the vibration of the Seventh Master, Guru Har Rai. The seventh body, the Auric body, carries the qualities of compassion, kindness, elevation of the self and others, as exemplified by Guru Har Rai.
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.”
This year, our newsletter explores the topic of Guru Har Rai: Teacher of Compassion. For the Summer 2014 issue we asked our Ministers to write on the theme of Developing Compassion in Oneself and to share how—in a time of extreme personal challenge—to cultivate compassion towards yourself and others. 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.
