Humanity only religion in the world: Nirankari Baba
TRACY, CA: "To love all and hate none" were the words spoken by Nirankari Baba Hardev Singh Ji at a huge congregation held in Tracy, California on Friday, September 11 to promote peace and harmony.
Some special guests attended the congregation that included Mayor of Tracy Brent H. Ives, Interfaith community members and Ahmadiyya community members. After the discourse, Nirankari Babaji met one and all personally and blessed them.
Empowering Yourself Through Spirituality: Nirankari Baba
Dr. Iqbaljit Rai, president of the U.S. branch of the Mission, told the gathering, “There is a lot of togetherness here. People all over the world are scrambling to find a solution to the unrest they have in their minds and all around. Harmony is the solution and our destination. Knowing God and self-realization is the journey towards it and let us all travel together to go there.”
Many learned saints from different centers had come to share and preach and, as coordinator and emcee Atul Batra said, the Mission was very happy to introduce so many dedicated people to the over 1000 devotees who had come to listen and get blessings from Babaji.
Ishwarji from Japan said we need to get salvation while we are alive to make our life meaningful. Norma Lee from the Family Federation for World Peace spoke of how happy she was to be connected, and ‘sangha’ ‘seva’ and ‘simran’ had changed her life.
The devotees sat with an open heart and open mind as Babaji gave his sermon. His eloquent words filled the hall: “All the truths are already in the scriptures, we are just revising them. The irony of life is that we cannot walk properly on this planet but boast about walking on the moon. We need to live with the basic values of love, humanity and compassion.”
He said it is “very important to be aware of the influences around us and not yield to the bad ones. Just adapt to the good ones and get rid of the vices. Let our vices die before us so we do not carry that burden with us. We need to work harder to break the man-made barriers.”
Babaji, who is visiting the U.S. after a gap of three years, said that even as this congregation comes to an end, it is “vidai” (goodbye) not “judai” (breaking up).
“Spirituality is incorporated in religion,” he told India-West. “A religious person should be spiritual as well. However, today, religion is only associated with rituals and ceremonies, so we have to emphasize on spirituality and spread it because it is very necessary and very universal.”
Songs were also sung on the occasion, including young kids associated with SNM-Los Angeles who sang “Tum se kya maangoo, Tum khud samajh lo,” and “We are the world.”
Cerritos Commissioner Pat Patnaik presented Babaji with a Certificate of Recognition, while Congresswoman Linda Sanchez sent a certificate and kind words on her behalf. Babji’s sister Mohinee Ahuja offered thanks to God for our health, intelligence and family.
Lunch was provided by Delhi Palace, who also sponsored the congregation along with many others.
Babaji will next be traveling for to for the Samagam and then on to New York.
NORWALK, CA: There was standing room only inside the banquet hall at the Marriott in Norwalk Sunday, September 13. More than a thousand people of all ages and walks of life came together for a conference entitled, "Empowering Yourself Through Spiritual Connection."
The audience was captivated by the motivational thoughts shared through presentations, speeches, and songs. The speakers came from multiple regions of the world including India, England, Canada and different states within America. The essence of all their contributions was to spread peace and love.
He said when you write the number 100, if you remove 1 then you are only left with zero. Similarly if you remove humanity from your life then you cannot be considered a success at anything else.
At the conclusion of the conference, people lined up for several hours to get blessings from Baba Hardev Singh.
