Gratitude for All Spiritual Masters 

July 30, 2023

This afternoon, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke at the SOS International Meditation Center in Lisle, Illinois (USA) on the occasion of Spiritual Masters’ Day. Instituted by Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj, this day falls on the fourth Sunday in July each year. It is a time to honor, celebrate, and be grateful for all spiritual Masters who have come into this world to guide humanity back to God.

With the grace and guidance of a spiritual Master we awaken to our true nature as soul. With self-realization comes the recognition and sincere yearning to return to our Source wherein we can attain God-realization—the ultimate goal of this human birth. Many do not think about life’s greater purpose, and consider it to be a mere physical journey. Yet when we connect with the inner Light through meditation, we experience the source of all joy and love. Our attention is withdrawn from the pain and sorrow of this physical world, and we focus within on the bliss of the spiritual world.

God loves each of us and is waiting for us to turn our attention Godward. Let us gratefully follow the blueprint given by the spiritual Masters and lead ethical lives as we strive to meditate and experience the Divine. If we follow in the footsteps of the great saints, we will surely find God.
