Satsang Programme in the Divine Presence of
Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji Maharaj

Delhi, Nirankari Chowk: February 13, 2019
In the memory of Om Prakash ‘Omi’ Ji

After the congregation in Bharatpur on February 11, 2019, Mata Ji and the entourage stayed there for the night. On February 12, they came to know that a great poet and Pracharak of the Mission and Sanyojak Sant Nirankari Colony, Delhi, Shri Om Prakash ‘Omi’ Ji breathed his last early in the morning. So, instead of Dhaulpur, the next station in the tour programme, Her Holiness decided to return to Delhi.

In Delhi, Satguru Mata Ji presided over the special congregation held in Ground No.8 to pay tributes and take inspiration from the life of ‘Omi’ Ji, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on February 13. Addressing the gathering, Her Holiness said:

“Saints, I was on tour. I attended a congregation at Bharatpur in Rajasthan. I got this information there the next morning and left for Delhi immediately. This family was certainly fortunate that God blessed them with such a great saint. He established examples every day that he did not belong only to his own family. This had a deep impact on the hearts of the members of his family. So, the family was really fortunate to have been guided or taught by him for such a long period of time.

Speaking about myself, I always saw him doing Sewa and glorifying God since my childhood. He followed Gurmat, what Satguru ordained to do, thoroughly and became a source of inspiration for others. He taught his family so well that they are taking his death as the will of God and not feeling shaken from the path of their life in any way. I pray to God that they are blessed with strength to have greater and greater trust and faith in God and His divine will and we also take them as an example to follow in such situations or moments in our own life.”

Earlier, several saints paid their tributes to ‘Omi’ Ji through speeches, songs and poems. Everyone recalled his devotion to God and faith in Satguru as also his selfless service towards the Mission. He was a great source of encouragement to youth to come forward and take part in the Mission’s activities. He followed Gurmat and became an example for others.

Those who paid tributes to ‘Omi’ Ji included Rev Ashok Manchanda Ji, Member Incharge Branches; Sulekh ‘Sathi’ Ji, Zonal Incharge, Babu Geetkar and Jagat Geetkar and Omi Ji’s elder brother Shri Shyam Sunder Ji.

Rev ‘Omi’ Ji was born in Delhi in the family of Shri Amir Chand Ji and Smt. Shakuntala Ji on November 18, 1946. He received Brahm Gyan at the age of 5. He was married to Sharmila Ji in 1973. They have two children – son Anupam Ji and daughter Savita Ji.

‘Omi’ Ji was known for his complete submission to Satguru. He was blessed with Sewa as Sector Incharge (Pramukh), right from the time the Sector system was introduced in Delhi.

Baba Hardev Singh Ji made him the Mukhi of Sant Nirankari Colony in 1984 and gave him permission to award Brahm Gyan in 1992. He was actively associated with estate management including Sant Niwas, Gurbachan Niwas and Sarovar Complex. As a leading poet of Punjabi and Hindi, he participated in the poetic symposium in every Annual Samagam invariably.

The devotional songs written by ‘Omi’ Ji along with Babu Geetkar have been published by the Sant Nirankari Mandal in several volumes and editions and are popular not only throughout the country but overseas also.
