Transforming Lives Through Meditation
“Remembering Our True Parent on Father’s Day” Kirpal Bagh, Delhi
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj delivered a touching discourse on the occasion of Father’s Day, a day celebrated around the world to remember, recognize, and honor our fathers and father figures. He said we should also remember and celebrate our True Parent–God–on this day and every day, for it is because of God’s love that we are here on earth. Our soul, which enlivens our body, is a part of God.
As we navigate our path Godward in this human existence, it is important that we work to strengthen our relationship with God. We can do so by experiencing God’s love, which is within us. This happens as we go within through meditation.
Additionally, as we develop gratitude for all that God has bestowed upon us, and as we remain in constant sweet remembrance of God, we are strengthening our bond. Every breath is a gift from God and an opportunity for us to find our way back to God. The more we connect with God through meditation, the more we experience the love of God, and the stronger our yearning to meet God.
It is this constant yearning that cleanses our heart and renders it a fit vestibule for God’s love. Being devoid of all thought but that of God is what ultimately culminates in our merger with God, the spiritual Master said.
Awaken to God’s Love
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj held his Sunday discourse this afternoon at Kirpal Bagh. He shed light on the importance of knowing our true purpose in this human birth and realizing it during this lifetime. Tens of thousands attended the talk despite the severe heat wave that has taken over Delhi.
Our purpose in this human birth is to know our soul and to find our union with God, said the spiritual Master. Since it is only in this human birth that we are afforded such an opportunity, we should do everything we can to realize our goal. We can take steps toward this goal by focusing our attention within and connecting with the divine Light and Sound of God through meditation, he said. This connection awakens us to our true identity as drops of the Ocean of God’s Love, and helps us realize the truth of our human existence.

In life, we have to remember that all things are transient. This knowledge can help us maintain a sense of balance when we face the highs and lows of life. When we become too ecstatic and happy, we need to remember that things will not always be that way, and we should not be disappointed or depressed when the happy times pass. When we become too depressed or unhappy, these four words can serve as a reminder to us that the pain is only temporary, and happy days will come again.
Wherever he goes, the spiritual Master carries the message that as we learn how to meditate we will enhance our spiritual growth. One of the key benefits of meditation is that it can make our lives an oasis of peace and love amidst the challenges of life.read more

The soul is a spark of God, and as God is love, our soul is also love, pure and simple. It is the enlivening force within us.

Being unconnected with our inner core or soul causes pain. The pain may manifest as a continual restlessness for something of which we are not aware. We rush around trying to find happiness in outer pursuits and are confused when the happiness we thought we would gain eludes us. We know there is something missing, yet we know not what it is.read more
