Sunday program with Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj

May 5, 2019

This afternoon at the International Meditation Center in Lisle, Illinois, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke about our human condition and the need to embrace our unity. We are bound to our bodies, he said, and we erroneously believe ourselves to be the body. We focus all our efforts on supporting and nurturing the body. It is only when we focus our attention within ourselves through meditation that we awaken to the realization that we are not the body, but rather, the soul — a part of God that gives life to the body.

This body, the spiritual Master explained, is but a vehicle that houses our soul. As we progress on the spiritual path, we come to realize that a part of God also resides in everyone else, and that we are all connected through the silken bond of God’s love. When this happens, we rise above a life of duality, in which we experience ourselves as being separate from others, and embrace a life of unity.
