The Goharian Philosophy of Divine Love
Spirituality catering for the entire humanity without discrimination based on nation, cast, creed, religion or faith
The teachings of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi are based on divine love, the core of all religions. The spiritual grace of His Divine Eminence is open to all humanity without prejudice to any nation, cast, creed, religion or faith. Since the spiritual grace of His Divine Eminence is not confined to any particular religion or faith and is meant to enlighten all, hence, we practise a universal mode of preaching.
There 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 the cleansing of the heart and the Carnal 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 using a method called the Opening of the Heart. When the spiritual heart is opened, God’s name is implanted in the beating system of the heart. This enables the throbs to repeat God’s name; thus, God’s name is mentioned along with every throb. Constant repetition of God’s name with the heartbeats produces divine energy which enlightens the heart eventually.
Hundreds of thousands of people have obtained this spiritual grace of HDE Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, 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 he looks at the enlightened and shimmering hearts.’
‘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.’
