No. 1 DIVINE LIGHT June, 1971
published with love by Divine Light Mission
TO ALL THE PREMIES OF LONDON: Spreading this Knowledge is the most, most holy and spiritual thing that one can ever do in this life, and the most precious thing that one can ever do in this life. You should spread this Knowledge so that your countrymen may know this Knowledge. So they may also share this little cup of peace. When people drink they do cheers with their glasses, but let them have the REAL cup of REAL wine and let them be really cheered with this Knowledge. So I hope you will spread this Knowledge and encourage more and more people to spread this Knowledge.

Jaipur, 21 May, 1971
For the devotees of London from India,
by Guru Maharaj Ji
You will be very pleased to know that Guru Maharaj Ji, Holy Mother, His glory Shri Bal Bhagwan Ji, Bhole Ji and Raja Ji are perfectly alright and are giving the Knowledge to Indians.
In 1971 a holy procession was held by the premies of Jaipur in Jaipur itself on 21 May. It was known to be the greatest historical procession ever held in Jaipur. Unfortunately it wasn't your good luck to see it, for it was the unparalleled function ever held in whole Rajasthan. Only the luck of few ones who are in India to achieve Holy Knowledge enabled them to see the holy procession. I am most glad to say that the figures of Divine Light Mission are increasing day by day in vast majority. You have attained the Holy Knowledge, and therefore it becomes your personal duty to bring your brothers and sisters to Mahatma Gurucharnanand or to Ashokanand. You know that unfortunately everybody (except those who have been initiated by me) lacks Knowledge. Their souls will bless you if you could enable them to see the right path and attain the True Knowledge. Surely I will soon be at the stage of London giving satsang and the Holy Knowledge. Surely it would make me very pleased to know that you are giving the holy satsang to the premies.
Expecting from all,
Sant Ji Maharaj

I am happy to receive your loving letter. Sorry for this belated reply as I was busy at a satsang programme.
I have given you the seed. Plant it in the field of your life; grow and harvest the crop. Peace and harmony will prevail on you. Listen to me, for you will hear God. Understand me, for you will understand God. I am always with you; it is you who should be with me to harmonize this world. The Almighty above needs no wealth or power but only wants our love. He has given us so many things which we claim to own, for example eyes, nose, our family etc. We should at least thank Him and serve Him for what He has done for us. We would have been incomplete if we had never had eyes or any of the other organs. He is the scientist of scientists because He has perfectly made us. He has made us perfect to be perfect and to know the perfect and this is all.
Every person has to be the son in order to be the father. This is natural law. Similarly,
in order to be with the Lord one has to be a humble servant in the beginning.
You in your western world are crippled with materialism. Come to me, for I shall heal you from your disease. Your eyes are blind for you cannot look to the spiritual world. Come to me, for I shall enlighten you. If you are lame, I am there to help you.
Dear aspirant, day by day men are exploring materialism. But the saints have explored in the spiritual sphere. Scientists write books and devise theories while the saints write scriptures and sing the glories of God. Love God for He is love. See Divine Light for He is Divine Light. Sing His glory in words for He is the Word. Quench your thirst for He is nectar. Listen to the heavenly harmony from which the universal frame began.
You have not seen me nor have I seen you face to face. But distance never blocks love, for I have received your loving letters and when I read them my heart is filled with your love. It spills with joy and I have only tears to shed. Don't be so eager to see me for I shall come to see you. I believe that a man should be so close to God that no gap remains between the two. He feels God and God feels him. Just as with the state of saturation described in science and the state of tranquillity described in the scriptures, the state of perfection as the ultimate goal of civilization has to be reached by man. Practise and meditate on the Word which is the essence of the universe, because as you all know practice makes a man perfect. Don't worry if you are a sinner or if you err, because it is said, "To err is human and to forgive is divine." If God had His divinity, then He will forgive His sinners. But one must not wantonly indulge in them and must avoid them.
I send you my blessings and hope that you will meditate and convey my message to your brothers and sisters and to all the citizens of your country. Lead a perfect life, and may victory and success be with you.
Shri Sant Ji Maharaj
