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.’

Muslim says, 'I am superior to all.' A jew declares, 'I am even better than Muslim.' And a Christian says, 'I am greater than both Muslim and Jews, and the rest of the religions, because I am the nation of God's Son.' But His Divine Eminence declares that superior and best of all is the one who possess God's love in his heart, in spite of his indifference to any religion.
