Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj Speaks in Bilkhora, Uttar Pradesh
Today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj and his wife, Mata Rita Ji, traveled to the village of Bilkhora, located 120km southeast of New Delhi. Upon arrival, they proceeded to a large pandal set up to accommodate the local group and those visiting from many parts of the county and abroad. To open the program, Mata Ji sang a hymn from the scriptures describing the plight of the wandering soul and the steps needed to reunite our soul with God. Sant Rajinder Singh Ji expounded on the theme and spoke of the human condition.
We spend our life running after things of the world, he said. Our activities are geared toward fulfilling one desire after another. Thinking of ourselves as different and better than others, we want everything for ourselves and are engrossed in trying to attain them. We focus on our physical, intellectual, and emotional needs. We are dragged in all directions by the senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. Like a pendulum, we oscillate from states of joy to states of sorrow.
We succumb to pride in the face of achievement and dissolve into pain and turmoil in the face of loss. We fall into the unending spiral of enjoyment of the senses and, forgetting God, spend all our time in sense pleasures. Even if we remember God, we do so only in times of trouble or when we do not get what we want, even after trying our best.
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji said there are worlds beyond this world of maya that are full of God’s love, Light, and bliss. We can all experience these worlds when we take our attention away from the outer world and focus it within through meditation. In the stillness of meditation, our soul, which is our true essence, can experience the love of God.
Everything in this world is temporary. We should use our time here to find God, know God, recognize God, and find our way back to God.
