A program in Bogotá: “Taking Stock and Planning Ahead”
The auditorium at the Colegio Sans Façon had been transformed for Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj’s spiritual talk this afternoon. At this time of year, he said, we think about what has happened in the past year, take stock, and plan for what we want to do in the coming year. As travelers on the spiritual path, it is important to keep our focus on our spiritual development.
We should be truthful to ourselves and to others, live in humility by curbing our ego, and aspire to extend a helping hand to others. We need to be of service to others so we can alleviate their burdens and also lead ethical lives, he said.
Elaborating on the role of meditation in our spiritual development, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji explained that when our attention is withdrawn from the outer world and collected at the seat of the soul, we are able to soar into the regions of light and love and connect with God’s love. The key, he said, is to be regular in our meditations. As our experiences get deeper, we will become more conscious of ourselves and increasingly receptive to God’s love and grace.
The talk was followed by a cultural program celebrating the spiritual Master’s visit to Bogotá. This concluded the second stop of this four-city tour. Tomorrow, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji travels to Cali, Colombia for what promises to be an unforgettable New Year’s Eve program.
