"Hazur [Baba Sawan Singh] one day told Seth Vasdev, whose car is always at Hazur's disposal, that he should read Kabir Sahib's Anurag Sagar (The Ocean of Intense Love). Hazur said that without studying it, one cannot fully understand the difference between Kal (the negative power) and Dayal Mat (the Path of the true and Merciful God), nor can one fully grasp the teachings of Sant Mat." (Rai Sahib Munshi Ram quoted in the Introduction to, The Ocean of Love: The Anurag Sagar of Kabir, English translation, published by Sant Bani Ashram)
"First of all I salute the Satguru, Who showed me the Inconceivable God -- Who, lighting the lamp of the Master's Knowledge and opening the veil, made me have His darshan [vision]... Only the connoisseur, who will test the Shabda [Word] and listen to the teachings with full attention and within whom these teachings will dwell, only he will understand this. He within whom the Sun of Knowledge will manifest and remove the darkness of attachment -- only he will understand this. I am telling you this Anurag Sagar (Ocean of Love) -- only rare saints will understand... As long as the soul remains in the body, 0 brother, practice the Path of Shabda... The path of the Essential Shabda is subtle, easy and perfect; but only the brave can follow it... The Union of Surat [Soul] and Shabda -- when one gets Shabda, he reaches the realm of the saints. It is the play of the drop and the Ocean. What else can one say? After meeting the Satguru, one understands the play of Shabda and Surat. It is the union of the drop and the Ocean. What else can one say? Giving up the qualities of mind, one should follow the Path of the Master. Such a soul goes to Sat Lok and derives Happiness from the Ocean of Happiness... He who gets the Shabda becomes free of the dirt of birth after birth. The jiva [Soul] who gets the Naam and Simran goes to Sat Lok. The soul who accepts the Shabda of the Master with firmness becomes as valuable as nectar. He goes back to his home with the strength of Sat Naam and his soul sings in peace and happiness." (selections from, The Anurag Sagar)
The Anurag Sagar, Guru Kabir's Ocean of Love, is one of many sacred texts composed and used by the Dharamdasi branch of Kabir Panth, the Sant Dharam Das line of Masters (the People of the Anurag Sagar). The Anurag Sagar is but one of many volumes in a larger collection known as the Kabir Sagar (Ocean of Kabir) consisting of many scriptures with the same question and answer format of dialogues (catechism) between Kabir (the Master) and Sant Dharam Das (the disciple). The Anurag Sagar is an essential text of Sant Mat, the Path of the Masters in the guru lineage of Sant Dharam Das, in the satsangs of Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar, and Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras. It remains popular with Radhasoami's as it was greatly valued by Soamiji Maharaj of Agra, Hazur Baba Sawan Singh, and is still considered essential reading by their spiritual successors up to the present time.  
God is the Ocean of Love.
In Divine Love, Light and Sound, Radhasoami, Peace Be to You,
