A Weekend of Celebration
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj congratulated the audience this evening, on the many special occasions that fall on this weekend. July 27th, marks the birth anniversary of Hazur Baba Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj, the spiritual Master who introduced the spiritual path to seekers from the West, and who, more than half a century ago, prophesied the awakening of spirituality in the West. This weekend also marks Spiritual Master’s Day – a day instituted by the Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj, to celebrate and honor all spiritual Masters, who have come to guide us on the way back to God.
Living at level of the physical senses, our focus remains at the level of the physical. We believe ourselves to be the body, and spend our time on earth nourishing and feeding the body. Unaware that we are children of God, we have taken the distant land of this physical world to be our home. We have forgotten our true Home, and our connection and relationship to God. Though our true essence is soul, the soul is shrouded by layers and layers of mind, matter and illusion in this human body, and we, by ourselves, are unable to experience the truth of our existence. Saints and spiritual Masters come to earth to remind us of who we are. By teaching us the technique of meditation, they help us embark on the inner spiritual journey, where we can experience our true essence for ourselves, and experience God’s love.
Today also marks the one-year anniversary of the Science of Spirituality International Meditation Center in Lisle. It was a year ago that on this day that the center was inaugurated. It has since served as a haven of peace and tranquility to all who have walked through its doors.
