International Day of Nonviolence

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj

October 2, 2020

Nonviolence is not limited only to humans, but extends to animals, plants, insects, and each living form. Love, which is lying dormant in each of us, is awakened by nonviolence, and that love is actually the love of God. Once the love of God is awakened, we are not going to hurt any other living form.

It is ahimsa or nonviolence that makes one a true human being—the human being that God wants us to be. It is one who walks on the path of nonviolence who removes the pain and anguish of the whole world.

If we walk on the path of nonviolence, the whole world comes close to us and we draw close to the whole world. Our life is then lived for every human being who shares the planet. Strife, tension, and wars will disappear, and if we are at peace ourselves, our communities, our nations, and the whole world will be at peace.

Why Do We Need to Empower Our Soul?

The soul has become lost in the world of mind, matter, and illusion. Empowering the soul means that we withdraw the power that the mind and senses have on us so that our soul can instead control and guide our life.

Prayer and Meditation

Prayer and Meditation

When our prayers end in a silent devotional yearning for union with God, without words, without thoughts, we have reached the highest form of prayer, which is meditation.

Giving Back to the Earth

Giving Back to the Earth

Giving back to our planet means that when we take food from it, we sustain the land so that it can continue to give food. The vegetarian diet symbolizes our respect for the earth. We can conserve earth’s resources by living on a vegetarian diet.
