Sant Kirpal Singh (1894-1974), was a Master of Surat Shabd Yoga, or the yoga of absorption of the Soul in the inner light and sound, the creative vibratory life-current said to be emanating from God. He was a true Sat Guru, grounded in a realization of non-dualism as well as a perfected adept in the celestial yoga he publicly taught.
Along with Ramana Maharshi, Atmananda, and Paramahansa Yogananda, Kirpal Singh belongs to a past generation of great Indian Godmen. He began meditating at the age of four, and was gifted with transvision, or clairvoyance, and could see things happening in other places and also in the future. Kirpal was a vegetarian from boyhood, although his family ate meat, and when he was five years old he told them that he would not eat meat because he didn’t want to make a graveyard of his body. He became a voracious reader of books and had an intense desire for knowledge. In his ninth class he went through all the books in the school library.
He was an open-hearted personality who cared for the sick and poor. A true Aquarian soul, to Kirpal Singh humanitarianism was never an empty abstraction. As a young man he helped to organize a service league to aid victims of the influenza epidemic of 1919, taking dead bodies to the cremation grounds that even the relatives were afraid to touch. After work he would visit hospitals to comfort and give assistance to people, many of whom he had never met. Later on when his daytime hours were taken up with work and service, he did his meditations (up to eight hours a day) in the hours after midnight, resting very little. His sole purpose was for the sake of knowledge and not the pursuit of a worldly career.
