HOW IS IT THAT THE SAINTS ARE CALLED THE INCARNATION OF SAT-PURUSH?
(CATECHISM of Param Guru Huzur Maharaj: Answer to Question No. 36)

            The Lord is supreme wisdom, supreme knowledge and the storehouse and treasure of all the virtues and good attributes and these attributes (comparatively to a very small extent) are present in the jiva also. On this account it has been said in the religion of saints that the Lord is like the ocean and the jiva like a drop of that ocean. All the jivas are like drops of the wave which after coming out of the ocean has got mixed in mud and earth or is surrounded by them but the spirit of the saints is like that wave which at the time of the ebb and flow of tide proceeds from the ocean along the river to a distance of miles and miles but comes back into the ocean. Therefore, every such wave can be described as the ocean itself and every such wave so far as it reaches brings back to the ocean such other waves also that are intermingled or surrounded with mud or earth. In other words, the spirit of the saints is in communication with the Holy Feet of the Lord. When His spirit comes down into the Human body It behaves like a jiva, but when It ascends and reaches Sat Loka, then there remains no difference between It and the Lord. [The saints are themselves karma-less. Their actions are not binding on them, for their spirits work from the purely spiritual region beyond Brahmand, above Dasham Dwar. However, they come to the material plane in human form with an allocation of karmas which they take upon themselves on behalf of their devotees]
