He was one of the first saints or gurus of Sant Mat tradition to openly speak and write against the deceptive and harmful practices of modern guruism and religious intolerance. As a highly pragmatic individual, Faqir also strove to explain the various practices and principles of Sant Mat based on his own experiences and in the context of modern science and psychology. He was also the first Sant Mat guru to talk about the phenomena consisting of a believer experiencing a subjective projection of a sacred or holy form of a guru or idol without the conscious knowledge of the person at the center of the experience, i.

Faqir Chand claimed that he had no knowledge of his form manifesting before a person and helping them with their worldly or spiritual problems. He was brought up in a poor Brahmin family, having a suppressed childhood. As a result, he sought relief in worship of God Bhakti. However, because of his unshakable faith in Data Dayal Ji he took a vow and honestly followed the path shown by his guru.

Among these discources was his experienced belief that the images and visions including holy forms, colors and lines, etc. After Faqir Chand discontinued the traditional practice of Nam-Dan, a form of baptism.

Instead, he preached that the description of the higher stages of inner knowledge by an experienced person was Nam Dan. In literature, there is mention of miraculous and divine appearances of his form to the followers in need and distress. He declared all such followers his Satguru the teller of true knowledge because their experiences regarding appearing of his holy form compelled him to think as to who helped them while he had no knowledge of those incidents.

Those were projections of mind, he concluded. Such experiences facilitated him to go beyond mind, soul light and inner sound current. This lead him to self-realization and eternal peace. His craving for ultimate truth ended. In , in view of his failing health, and at the request of David Christopher Lane, a professor of philosophy in California, Faqir Chand dictated his autobiography to Prof. Originally written in Urdu, it was translated into English by Prof. Kamal and later edited and published by Dr.

He also made it clear that the trust of Manavta Mandir had no relation other than that of love with Manavta centers opened in his name and their preachers within the country and abroad. Faqir allowed his blood relations to serve the temple but prohibited them from becoming members of the trust and interfering with Temple affairs. He appointed Munshi Ram Bhagat to give Nam Dan, instruct the souls and help distressed and perturbed people. He also co-appointed Manav Dayal I. Under the terms of his will, no fee is charged for studying in school run by Manavta Mandir.

But, Faqir made it compulsory for parents of wards to give an undertaking which restricted them from giving birth to more than three children. He further clarified that his saintism excluded places of veneration of the dead, graves, tombs and worship of deceased great people.

Faqir found much to agree with in their humanitarian approaches, but disagreed with the traditional Nam-Dan and the prevalent guruism in India. He had very little tolerance for religious practices leading to exploitation of poor, innocent and believing people. As shown in his written works, he saw himself as an ardent follower of Sant Mat and Radha Soami Mat, but was disillusioned with ultimate outcome of higher stages of Surat Shabd Yoga and mysticism nourished by Saints. He declared that the ultimate goal of Sant Mat was spiritual, mental and physical peace and not an imagined spiritually exalted stage.

His emphasis later shifted from Yogic practices to the humanism of Sant Mat. Faqir also believed in the idea that sex was best used for the purpose of begetting children; bringing these children into the world would then work to reduce the sufferings of human race. His philosophy of life looked to the welfare of both the self and of others.

For internal peace, he advised young people to remain busy, earn a livelihood, observe self-restraint, and to remain under the guidance of an honest and truthful person. As a part of social duty he asked his followers not to intentionally hurt others, avoid purposeless talk, be tolerant to bitter words, and to serve fellow beings selflessly.

Pious deeds, pious earnings, and charity which includes affection and welfare were other aspects covered by him under social behavior, and which he considered to be essential for humans. In other spiritual practices he underlined love, devotion, faith, and dedication. Frequently, he taught his followers to be true to themselves and surrender to God.

He explained that the purpose of such yogic techniques was to still or quiet the mind by allowing it to focus on one thought or image.

In a lecture on self-realization, he shared that the Radha Swami state was none other than realization of the true Self, which is beyond name and form. He noticed that all beings were bubbles of super most conscious element and ultimate goal of humans was peace.

It reminds me of Shabdanands stories about the pure Spirit called Baba Faqir. But how is anyone to understand it? Only after this realization: that I am a bubble of consciousness. A bubble of consciousness would not claim itself to be a yogi, sadhu, or a gnani. For me Baba Faqir Chand is a tremendous important Master. I did not have the good luck to meet him - he left the body I But I have heard his words and felt his great Spirit through several of his highly elevated devotees.
