Thanks to the innovations of Guru Arjan Dev, Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar, Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras, and Soamiji Maharaj of Agra, the Path of Initiation into Inner Light and Sound Meditation (Surat Shabd Yoga) has gradually become progressively more and more available to an ever-growing percentage of humanity. "Satsang shall spread far and wide in future." (Last Words of Soamiji Maharaj) "After Swami Ji Maharaj, the floodgates of initiation opened up and many people would be able to get the initiation." (Baba Ram Singh) And the Sant Mat spiritual classic and scripture known as the Anurag Sagar (Kabir's Ocean of Love) predicts that as this Kali Yuga age continues to unfold, the Path of the Masters will be far more well-known and followed than it is at present. But at every step and in each generation of time, Masters have had to intervene and reboot the Path whenever it begins to go off course, "falls into the mouth of Kal", the negative power, the gnostic demiurge or false god, in other words, eaten by illusion. Soamiji Maharaj of Agra once said of spiritual paths: "Without Bhakti [love], they are all hollow and sham, outer husks without a kernel." It is the inner "kernel" or "seed" of Life we’re really after, not developing attachments to institutions or organizations, or going through the motions of holidays, traditions, and rituals, well within the confines of the grinding wheel of transmigration.
"I will make the souls firm in the Shabda of the Gracious Forgiver, Sat Purush. Such souls will be Sahaj [on a natural path]: pure and content. They will do the devotion of the soul, and they will be the abode of pure qualities. By doing the Simran of Sat Purush they will sing the praise of the Immovable Naam. I will send the souls to Sat Lok... Spreading the Nectar of Naam I will awaken the souls. O Dharam Rai [negative power], listen carefully. I will humble your arrogance. By doing the practice of devotion, they will get the passport and I will connect them with the Naam of Sat Purush. The Negative Power can't come near such a soul, and he will bow down to them when he sees their union with Sat Purush." (Anurag Sagar, Kabir's Ocean of Love)
