Baba Sawan Singh Ji was an Indian Saint and enlightened Master. Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj was a disciple of the well-known Master of Beas, Hazur Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji. They met in 1924, in the Ashram of Baba Sawan Singh Ji on the banks of the Beas River. In the Master, Kirpal Singh Ji recognized the luminous form He had seen during the seven previous years in His meditation. Hazur Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji initiated Him into the spiritual discipline of Surat Shabd Yoga, and from then on Kirpal Singh Ji dedicated His life to reaching the summits of spirituality. Today, we have the opportunity to read a selection from a book authored by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj and His beloved Master Baba Sawan Singh Ji entitled, “The Spiritual and Karmic Aspects of the Vegetarian Diet.” “Regarding laxity in the prescribed diet, I wish to say to all aspirants on the Path that it is necessary, so long as one is in the physical body, that vegetarianism should be strictly adhered to. Any relaxation in the matter of diet would not only be a definite hindrance in meditation but would unnecessarily contract karmic reaction. The real Goal is to use every means possible to rise into full God-consciousness.” - Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj (vegetarian) “The greatest purpose of human life is that one should know one’s self and know God, and all the rest is mere dissipation. ‘Sound mind in a sound body’ is a well-known aphorism. One has, therefore, to work for these before anything else. We have to keep both body and mind in a healthy condition before these can be used as instruments for spiritual advancement. For this, we have, of necessity, to resort to food. We cannot do without food for keeping the body and soul together. Our first and foremost problem then is food, for food conditions body as well as mind.” “Fresh air is the most essential part in our food. One must intake long breaths, retain them a while, and then exhale them out fully so as to cast out all the impurities of the body. Besides this, one must drink a lot of pure water and take fruit juices to flush the system through and through to make one clean. But avoid all types of spirituous liquors, and intoxicants, for they render the mind and intellect morbid. Grains and fruits should form our normal and staple foods.”
