Honoring the Earth: International Meditation Center

April 23, 2019

This evening, to mark Earth Day, which is celebrated on April 22nd each year, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke on the topic of ecology, conservation, and living in harmony with our environment.

Describing the beautiful systems that God has put in place to sustain life on this planet, he pointed out how, in our efforts toward a more comfortable life for ourselves, we have depleted the earth’s bounty. If we are to honor the earth, we need to learn to live in harmony with our environment, and be generous, loving, and caring in how we share its resources with others.

This transformation in our way of life comes when we go within through meditation, the spiritual Master said. As we sit in silence, we begin to recognize our existence at the level of the soul, and see everyone as an extension of ourselves. It is then that we begin to live under the principle of love, creating an atmosphere that is calm and peaceful for all.
