Spiritual Masters’ Day
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj
On the fourth Sunday of July, we celebrate Spiritual Masters’ Day. On this day, we celebrate and recognize the saints and spiritual Masters who have come into this world to help people focus on God. They focus us on the goal of having our soul experience God—the goal of experiencing the spiritual love of God. It is the goal of being in a state of bliss. It is the goal of being in a state of happiness and joy that is everlasting and is there all the time so that we, as human beings, can experience that state every second of the day.
On Spiritual Masters’ Day, we open our hearts to each and every one, irrespective of how they look, irrespective of their backgrounds, irrespective of what they eat, irrespective of how they speak, irrespective of language, and irrespective of whatever walks of life in which they find themselves.
We as human beings are celebrating our togetherness with God. We might come in different sizes, we might come in different shapes, we might come in different colors, but we are all trying to go back to God. As we celebrate Masters’ Day it is important to realize that we are all in this world to experience the love of God. We are all here, not only to experience that spiritual love, but to soar on that divine love back to our Source.
In this short video (01:30), Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj explains that we have created barriers that separate us from one another. Yet, he says, the saints and mystics of all traditions tell us that there is one universal Father and we are all children of God.
