Spiritual Master Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj Speaks at United Nations
Renowned spiritual Master Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj, head of Science of Spirituality, returned in May to speak at the United Nations.
He spoke previously at the Millennium World Summit in 2000, when he delivered his message of inner and outer peace through spirituality to an international audience of religious and spiritual leaders.
On Monday, May 2, he gave his second address at the widely respected institution, sponsored by the UNSRC SaluS Well Being Network Club in collaboration with Science of Spirituality. His topic was “Building Bridges through Meditation.”

For the next hour, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke to an attentive audience about the benefits of meditation, emphasizing that relaxation, stress relief, better concentration, and improved relationships are byproducts of meditation, not its sole purpose. He said the prime purpose of stilling the body and stilling the mind in meditation is to experience God within ourselves.
He also said that in meeting with world leaders, he found they are seeking peaceful solutions to conflict. They are realizing that becoming more peaceful themselves through an interest in meditation, they are able to make better judgements in challenging situations.
