Long Island, NY: Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj’s visit to the Tri-State region last week has attracted thousands of his followers to listen the wisdom words that are known to have transformed the lives of people around the world through meditation.
On Friday, April 29th, thousands attended the talk in Hindi at the Amityville Meditation Center on Long Island, by Sant Rajinder Singh Ji , Head of Science of Spirituality (SoS)/Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission. Earlier on Wednesday, the spiritual Master inaugurated the Science of Spirituality New Jersey Meditation Center in Perth Amboy, home to large Spanish and Hindi speaking communities. The center hosts a library, an office, rooms for children and young adults, a book store, and a large kitchen, and of course, a meditation hall.
Acknowledging the multicultural and diverse makeup of the community, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj said the path of Sant Mat brings together people of all faiths, all cultures, and all walks of life. The unifying thread among all, he said, is our humanity and our search for God. Having a center is a great blessing as it offers the opportunity to come together, sit together, share, and focus on what is truly important in life – our relationship with God.
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj’s discourse in the tristate on Sunday, May 1 was on “Meditation to Access Spiritual Realms” followed by initiation. To date, Science of Spirituality/Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission has 2059 centers in 54 countries around the world. On Monday, May 2, he gave his second address at the widely respected institution, sponsored by theUNSRC SaluS Well Being Network Club in collaboration with Science of Spirituality. Appropriate to the occasion, his topic was, “Meditation as Medication for the Soul,” based on his book by the same name. The Reverend Susana Bastarrica, president, UNSRC SaluS Well Being Network, and Mr. Vijay Nambiar, Special Advisor on Myanmar to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon introduced the spiritual Master.
The spiritual Master spoke to an attentive audience about the benefits of meditation, emphasizing that relaxation, stress relief, better concentration, and improved relationships are byproducts of meditation, not its sole purpose. The prime purpose of stilling the body and stilling the mind in meditation is to experience God within ourselves, he told the audience.
