Illumine the Lamp of Your Heart
Today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj delivered the inaugural address of a three-day virtual, worldwide program on the occasion of his 75th birthday! The spiritual Master spoke on how we should best lead our lives. We need to fill our hearts with love, God’s love. This love resides within, but we do not experience it because we spend our lives focusing our attention on the attractions and distractions of the outer world, not stopping to look within.
The first step is to establish a foundation of ethical virtues; to live a truthful, nonviolent existence, being humble in our dealings with others, and embracing everyone at the same level. We should live from a place of love and compassion, sharing the burdens of our fellow beings. Having done so, we then need to take steps to experience the reality of this human existence and to fulfill life’s supreme goal – the realization of ourselves as soul and the merger of our soul in God.
To accomplish this, we need to learn the technique of meditation, the process by which we can withdraw our attention from the world outside and focus it within. As we do so, we embark on the inner spiritual journey that fills us with God’s love and Light. Imbued in God’s love, our faith in God is strengthened. The Light we experience within illuminates our lives and the world around us as it guides us back to God.
