See how Faqir Chand's truth holds up with Lord Buddhas views from the Lankavatara Sutra from the previous thread. I think Faqir was in his late 80s or early 90s when he wrote this. He had been practicing Surate Shabda yoga since his young adulthood.

I am here not forever. Death must come one day. For what should I
spoil my true self? When I adopted this path of life, I had pledged
that I would follow this path with Truth and shall speak to the world
my realization of this path. The writings did not reveal the Truth to
me. Denunciations of my forefathers in the writings of the Saints
pained me, but I had a firm faith in His Holiness Hazur Data Dayal Ji
Maharaj. His Holiness had directed me, "Faqir, change the mode of
preaching before abandoning this mortal frame." Now, after having
such experiences with me, I question myself, "Faqir Chand, say, what
mode of preaching do you wish to change? Which teachings should I
change?" The change that I can make in the present mode of preaching
I explained in the discourses that I delivered during my tour. The
change is, "O man, your real helper is your own Self and your own
Faith, but you are badly mistaken and believe that somebody from
without comes to help you. No Hazrat Mohammed, no Lord Rama, Lord
Krishna or any God or goddess or Guru comes from without. This entire
game is that of your impressions and suggestions which are ingrained
upon your mind through your eyes and ears and of your Faith and
Belief." This is the change that I am ordained to bring about.
