24. Self-slander

Self criticizm is the best thing one can do to reach the higher realms of the Eternal Truth.  Wereas self praise does the opposite.  


“Self Ki Nindya” (slandering your own self) is the only slander one should be doing.  Pointing a finger at one’s self (instead of pointing and blaming others) is the key to success on the spiritual path.  It brings in the “Garibi ves Hirda” (heart of humbleness).  And whichever Hirda has the Garibi (humbleness) the Almighty lives in there.   The “Garibi Ves Hirda” is humility, the utmost humility.  It is seeing everyone else as above us, and ourself as lowest of the lowest, the slave of the slaves, the Charan Dhool (foot dust) of the Kot Brahamand (countless realms of Creation), the Charan Dhool (foot dust) of the entire creation.  This is when there is a death of ego (haumai) and death of ego means Jivan Mukti (liberated while alive).  The death of ego means winning over Maya.  The death of ego means the entire creation is revealed as the (body of God) Sargun Saroop of Akal Purakh.  The death of ego means the achievement of the “Dib Drisht” (inner vision) when the divine eye opens and everything becomes Sargun Saroop (embodiment of God) around you. 


You are a Dhan Dhan (great great) soul who is full of humility. Please keep it up, you are doing great, please dedicate yourself more and more to Puran Bandgi and you will be doing better and better. 


We are just the charan dhool (foot dust) of you all, of the enlightened ones, we are nothing, no Sant by any means.  We are just a dass (servant) of bishta ka kira (worm in manure).  We will always be a sacrifice to you all doing Satnaam, we will always remain under the dust of your pure and pious feet and shoes.
