The Spiritual Revolution
When Kirpal Singh was asked, who would be His Spiritual Successor, He replied:
I wish you all to become ambassadors of Truth.
So, if we meet someone who has at least a clean causal body – Sadh –, we can naturally contact in His presence the Holy Sound Current.
The Master-Power never dies. He may leave the body, as anyone else does, but He is more than a mere body. He is an ideal, a living Sound Current or a Life Principle that gives Life and Light to the entire world – out of this it is said, that Kirpal Singh guides the souls of the sincere seekers after Truth within and His Gurmukhs and Khalsas are His ambassadors of Truth.
After His passing away one may derive benefit from the Satsang conducted by a Gurmukh Who is carrying on the duties of the Guru, and may consult Him in case he has some difficulty.
Inspite of the well-known and often-quoted dictum that Bani – Shabd or Word – is the Guru, implying thereby that there was no need of Gurus thereafter, the Gurus carried on the work of initiating people; and even today the Khalsa – Pure One – with perfect, resplendent Light within is authorised to carry on the work of Spiritual Instruction and guidance to seekers after Truth.
Kirpal Singh said:
So springtime is upon us now; there will be more fragrant Saints, I would say now, Who will come up and give us through the Grace of God, a contact with the God-into-Expression-Power. And this is the revolution, the Spiritual Revolution, which is coming up – an awakening all around.
After my physical departure I will not stand behind any organisation, founded in my name. If so, it will be their own destiny.

Explanation: 1) A Sadh is one who has gone beyond the region of Trikuti – Onkar – which is the same as Lahut in Sufi terminology, and Hu in Islamic theology. He has witnessed the spirit in its pristine Glory, after having rid it of all coverings, and is now Trigunatit – beyond the three gunas: satva, rajas, and tamas, in which all human beings work according to their natural and native instincts; beyond the five elements – earth, water, fire, air and ether, of which the physical world is composed; beyond the twenty-five prakritis – the subtle forms in varying degrees of the elements; and beyond also mind and matter.
In short, He is an adept in self-knowledge, or the art and science of spirit, and can, at will, disengage the spirit from various koshas – sheaths or caskets – in which it is enclosed like a priceless gem.
The greatness of a Sadh lies beyond the three Gunas – as he is Trigunatit.
