here are two dimensions in all religions: outer and inner. Outer knowledge is already very common in all religions – therefore, we don’t prioritise it in our message – whereas the inner dimension has become extinct in religious circles today. We lay emphasis on cleansing of the heart and the Self. The outer knowledge is like the skin of a potato, while the inner knowledge is its core. It is the inner knowledge that connects the human heart with God when it becomes enlightened.
The teachings of His Divine Eminence Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi concern itself with initiating the hearts of aspirants with God’s name. God’s name is implanted in the beating system of the heart, which enables the throbs to repeat God’s name; thus, God’s name is mentioned along with every throb. This unique method allows the repetition of God’s name to produce divine energy. Constant repetition of God’s name produces divine energy which enlightens the heart eventually.
Hundreds of thousands of people have obtained this spiritual grace of Lord Ra Riaz, and have started to love God. We don’t convert people into one religion from another; rather we convert their hearts into divine love. Conversion of a religion is fruitless today, as almost all religions have lost their spiritual system. It does not make a difference what religion one may follow, as all are darkened in the hearts. According to a Prophetic Tradition, ‘God does not look at your bodies and deeds, but looks at the enlightened and shimmering hearts.’
Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi places all emphasis upon obtaining God’s love.
A Muslim thinks he is the best, a Jew thinks he is the best and a Christian thinks he is the best. However, I say that the best among all is one who loves God the most, in spite of his indifference to any religion.
– Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi
His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi warns, ‘You shall not find God through physical worship but through the passage of an enlightened heart.’ Lord Ra Riaz reveals, ‘The human heart works like a telephone operator between God and man.’ His Divine Eminence further adds that God himself guides the enlightened heart; therefore, one will surely find God following this unique spiritual methodology.
