Description
PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION

"Die to LIVE and LIVE forever," we are told by our Master. Satsangis, his initiates, daily die to this world in their meditation, Daily they rehearse for that inevitable final departure. But now, with their Master always with them, they travel those regions of Light and Sound through the Celestial Spheres of the creation within, back to the level of the Father, back to their Divine Source. Through meditation, and with the grace of the Master, the purpose of human birth is fulfilled, and the soul, liberated for eternity, is taken back to Him for whom it has been yearning since its separation. Hence, the theme of all Saints and Masters is to attend to meditation.

This book, then, has its conception in our Master's exhortation to attend to meditation. Its intent is to explain what meditation is, and to dispel any doubts, questions, and apprehensions a seeker may have regarding meditation. It states clearly the Master's teachings about how we must conduct our lives to make meditation our foremost and primary concern.

The sequence of the book is designed to guide the disciple through all phases of meditation, from managing one's daily activities to creating the right atmosphere for meditation, from actually attending to the practice to realizing and understanding the effects of meditation.

Then the Master gives us encouragement as we follow the path. He calls us that controlling the mind, as each disciple quickly becomes aware, is so small task. To withdraw one's consciousness and reach back to the level of the father is the most difficult and the highest of all goals to achieve. So the Master comforts us by providing insight into our plight. He gives a perspective to our journey as he guides us with his grace at every step on our Path Homeward.

The format for this book, consisting entirely of questions from disciples regarding meditation, followed by Master's answers, has been designed in an attempt, as well as the profoundly and lucidly beautiful truths spoken by the Master.

To all those involved with bringing this work to completion, we are deeply grateful.

 

PREFACE TO THE FIFTH EDITION

Die To Live, this collection of Maharaj Charan Singh's answers to questions about meditation, continues to be popular with initiates and seekers alike.

Meditation constitutes the basis of the teachings of the saints. It is the way to God, an inspiration to the mind to seek Him, and food for the soul starving for union with the Beloved.

After spreading the message of divine love for forty years, carrying Sant Mat to almost all parts of the world and initiating about 1,300,000 seekers in the technique of spiritual practice, Maharaj Charan Singh left this world on June 1, 1990, to merge back into the Supreme Father.

On May 30,1990, two days before his departure, he made a Will appointing Maharaj Gurinder Singh as his successor who has taken up the heavy responsibility of looking after and guiding the satsangis and seekers with spiritual insight, love and dedication.

We have pleasure in bringing out the fifth edition of Die To Live and are confident that the readers will continue to derive spiritual benefit and bliss from the Master's inspiring words.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
