Sant Rajinder Singh Ji in New York, July 20 and 21, 2019
Whether it is speaking at the United Nations or being interviewed by the New York Times, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj is no stranger to New York. On July 20 and 21, the spiritual Master was once again in New York to speak on Long Island and in Queens.
The opportunity of spending even a brief weekend with Sant Rajinder Singh Ji drew over 3000 people to the Science of Spirituality Meditation Center in Amityville on Saturday and Queens College on Sunday.
His talk on July 20, “Spiritual Awakening,” was in Hindi, a first for the Amityville Center. The auditorium was absolutely still as he spoke about meditation, bringing it back to its spiritual roots, as he said the purpose for which we came into this world is to know ourselves and to know God. As his talk ended, the audience erupted in applause. The talk was translated into both English and Spanish.
Citations and tributes
Prior to Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj’s Sunday talk at Queens College, he received seven citations from federal, state and city public officials, including Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY) and Congressman Tom Suozzi (D-NY), for his untiring efforts in bringing the message of inner and outer peace through meditation to all corners of the world.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo paid rich tribute to the spiritual Master, saying: “On behalf of all New Yorkers, I applaud Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj for his invaluable leadership and dedication to bringing about a world of peace and spiritual awakening and thank him for sharing his wisdom and healing.”
A message from United Nations Under Secretary-General for Operational Support, Atul Khare, offered this insight: “Just as we have made considerable progress in reaching out to the external world, we need to make the equally arduous journey inside toward our souls.”
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji’s message
In the opening remarks to his talk, “Explore the Journey Within,” Sant Rajinder Singh Ji expressed his joy at seeing the diversity that New York exemplifies. He said although there are many different languages, in the spiritual arena, the language is the language of love; and when we experience the language of love, nothing else matters. Just as we experience our body, we can experience our soul, which is part of God. He defined spirituality as the journey of the soul to be with God.
The evening ended with meditation. First the spiritual Master explained the technique of meditation, then the audience sat in pin-drop silence, with closed eyes, enjoying the peace that not only pervaded the huge auditorium but also filled their hearts.
From New York, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj returns to the Chicagoland area where he has programs at the Science of Spirituality International Meditation Center in Lisle, Illinois.
