Satsang Programme in the Divine Presence of

Satguru Mata Savinder Hardev Ji Maharaj

Delhi: November 27, 2016

After the 3-day 69th Annual Nirankari Sant Samagam concluded on Monday, November 21, 2016, the first regular Sunday congregation in Delhi was held on November 27. The venue, however, remained the Samagam Ground No.2. Naturally, the congregation was attended by huge number of devotees from Delhi and Greater Delhi. A large number of devotees from several other parts of the country and abroad who had come for the Samagam also attended the congregation.

Blessing the gathering, Satguru Mata Savinder Hardev Ji Maharaj said:

“Saints, you just met a large number of saints, enjoyed the Samagam. The preparations were completed in more than 2 months in which you all participated day and night. I had an opportunity to go round the venue about 3-4 days back. I found that except some tents, everything else had been wound-up. Suddenly, the idea came to my mind that we spend so much time and work so hard to establish something! The Mission also has reached the present heights with the hard work and sacrifices made by many saints. Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj himself taught us the way of living through his own life.

Saints, even a tiny stain on a white garment becomes prominent to attract the attention of everyone. Similarly, whatever good we do, even a single mistake on our part may bring criticism.

You will recall that Baba Ji often said that to receive God-knowledge or Brahm Gyan is not enough, it must be accompanied by action. One is left alone without the other. Both God-knowledge and action are, therefore, essential in order to take us forward on the path of devotion.

People notice even the smallest thing we do. You heard about the Speaking Tree (TOI) just now. I read the article published there this morning. It mentioned that some Sewadal volunteers were escorting them through the Samagam Ground. One of them noticed a small piece of scrap which he removed immediately and put it in his pocket. It means even such a small action was noticed by the Press Reporters.

We heard that being Nirankari is not a statement, it’s a responsibility. All of us have to fulfil this responsibility well and follow Baba Ji’s words in practical life completely.”

Earlier, Dr. Iqbaljit Rai, President, Sant Nirankari Mandal, USA said that many organizations are doing good work for the society across the world, but it seems that they are not going anywhere or achieving much. Even great religious and political leaders have been endeavouring to unite the world or establish human unity. But when we look at the message of the Sant Nirankari Mission, we find that we are doing the same successfully. Elsewhere, people try to convert others to their religious faith, culture or the way of life. But here we are bringing about transformation which is far different from conversion. Shahenshah Baba Avtar Singh Ji asked every devotee to follow cultural tolerance as a part of devotion.

Similarly, we have been encouraging inter-religious marriages for the past 50 years. And all this has been possible only because we have been moving in the right direction as guided by Satguru.

Recently, Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj emphasized the need for oneness of mankind. No doubt, nations are coming closer globally, but the cultural oneness is possible only through oneness of mankind based on the realisation of the One i.e., God. Today, we are happy that Satguru Mata Savinder Hardev Ji Maharaj is also leading us in the right direction.

Holy Daughter Sudiksha Ji said that she spent lot of time with Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj, but the opportunity that I have got to participate in day-to-day activities with Satguru Mata Savinder Hardev Ji Maharaj has enabled me to have insight and deal with things in details. I find that Satguru Mata Ji is taking care of devotees just as Baba Ji did himself. For example, she did not care for her health but visited the ground day and night to see the preparations and ensure that all arrangements are made to make the stay of the participants during the Samagam as comfortable as possible. Hence, we also pray for her good health.

Sudiksha Ji said that there is no difference between Baba Ji and Mata Ji, but still there are some devotees who are unable to realize it. They seem to be comparing Satguru Mata Ji with Baba Ji and fail to find similar qualities in the two. They are, however, not correct. The sun is the same. It may change the shades due to clouds. The fact, however, remains that there is no change in the light of the sun.

Shri Sukhdev Singh from Chicago, USA said that Satguru Mata Savinder Hardev Ji Maharaj has the advantage to know each and every devotee in India and abroad, because she always moved shoulder to shoulder with Baba Ji. This was evident enough when several saints from abroad who came for the Samagam paid their obeisance at the holy feet of Satguru Mata Ji. She enquired about the welfare of each family just as Baba Ji did with so much of love and care. In fact, Satguru Mata Ji acted always as an able Minister to an emperor while Baba Ji was leading the Mission. We are sure that she will be a perfect successor to look after his spiritual domain. Moreover, when the father goes from a family, the mother is always capable of look after the same.

There was another speaker from USA – Shri Anup Kumar Bharat from Minneapolis. There was a time when he was doing Sewa in the Transport Workshop and then at the Reception at the Sant Nirankari Mandal Headquarters in Delhi. Addressing the congregation he told several stories of Baba Ji’s love for devotees. He prayed to Satguru Mata Savinder Hardev Ji Maharaj to shower her divine blessings upon devotees by visiting where they are, like Baba Ji.
