Romi Basra Said:
or human unity through the fatherhood of God. In fact the Holy books state that
the pursuit of human unity has been the message of all the previous prophets and
gurus throughout the centuries. Unfortunately, this goal has yet to be achieved in
mainstream society as many in this world continue to harbor hatred, anger, and
mistrust for their fellow brothers and sisters.
There are many quasi political, social, and religious organizations that have
attempted to achieve a lasting brotherhood, but unfortunately have not been able to
do so due to as the approach was based on self interests and conformity. Such an
approach cannot offer a lasting unity, as self interests are always changing and
temporary by definition. Any unity based on conformity will have a shaky
foundation, as the underlying basis (ie. religious doctrine and traditions, ethnic
backgrounds, language, economics etc.) also adapt and change over the course of
The Nirankari Mission has a very straightforward, practical, and consistent view
that universal brotherhood has to be based on eternal truth (i.e. God realization)
in order to be permanent and lasting. The belief is that worldy relations are
temporary and co-incidental, and only a relation born out of spiritual knowledge
can be eternal. The ultimate or eternal truth, as revealed by the True Master of
the time, provides the solution.
WHEN WE TALK ABOUT UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD WE REALIZE THAT THIS CAN BE ACHIEVED ONLY
IF WE ARE AWARE OF FATHERHOOD OF GOD.
IN MOST OF THE RELIGIOUS & SPIRITUAL INSTITUTIONS IN THIS WORLD PEOPLE OFTEN TALK ABOUT IT AND RECOGNIZE ITS SIGNIFICANCE. WE FEEL OURSELF BLESSED IN ACHIEVING THIS STAGE BECAUSE OF THE DIVINE KNOWLEDGE(GOD'S KNOWLEDGE) WE RECEIVED FROM OUR LORDMASTER SATGURU BABA HARDEV SINGH JI MAHARAJ THROUGH SANT NIRANKARI MISSION.
THIS ENLIGHTENED OUR SOUL AND CREATED THE SPIRIT OF ONENESS.NOW WE ARE FULLY AWARE OF THE TRUTH THAT WE ALL HUMAN BEING ARE CHILDREN OF ONE FATHER ALMIGHTY GOD,WHICH
FURTHER CREATES THE FEELING OF UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD IN US.
THIS FEELING STARTS FROM OUR HOUSE,THEN IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD THEN SOCIETY AROUND US,THEN CITY,STATE,COUNTRY AND THEN IN THE WHOLE OF UNIVERSE ITSELF.
MERE TALKING ABOUT UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD WON'T BENEFIT UNLESS WE APPLY IT WITH HONESTY IN OUR LIFE, FOR THAT WE HAVE TO BE REALLY NICE AMONG OURSELF AND TOWARDS OTHERS IN THE WORLD.
NIRANKARI BABA JI OFTEN SAYS THAT "IT IS NICE TO BE IMPORTANT BUT IT IS MORE
IMPORTANT TO BE NICE", SO IF WE ARE HONESTLY NICE
,IMPORTANCE AUTOMATICALLY COMES TO US BUT IF WE ARE JUST IMPORTANT AND NOT NICE, IMPORTANCE DISAPPEARS. TO BRING THE WHOLE WORLD UNDER ONE ROOF OF UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD,GOD'S KNOWLEDGE IS THE ONLY SOURCE WHICH IS BEING PROVIDED ONLY BY SANT NIRANKARI MISSION IN THIS WORLD AND TO KEEP ALL OF US REMAIN UNDER THAT ROOF OUR BEING NICE WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE MISSION PLAYS A SIGNIFICANT ROLE.WE PRAY ALMIGHTY GOD TO GIVE US STRENGTH THAT WE MAY TRULY FOLLOW THE PRINCIPLE OF UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD OF OUR
MISSION REMEMBERING THE SPIRIT OF FATHERHOOD OF GOD ALWAYS AMONG US
Sanjeev Sagar Said:
In the time of Master Baba Avtar singh ji, he always mentioned that We're not
brothers only to those who are siting in the sangat but even to those who are not
aware of the sangat or who don't even know what sangat is. They are also family
members, which make the sangat as Universal family. We all look different from
outside but from inside we all are one. We all have same source of the life and we
all live under same sun and on the same planet.
Baba ji mentioned that during the preparatio of Samagam's in India, there are
speakers in the market, on the highway/freeway and in the big grouds. When people
hear the word, Universal Brotherhood, every one take a pause and think that this is
the only mission in India, which talk about Universal and teaches that we all are
one family, we all are brothers.
Universal Brotherhood is the voice of the time and it is our main motto of the
Nirankari Mission. I like to share my testimony that i am not born in the Mission.
But when i came to mission after my marriage, this sense of oneness was like a
magnetic force for me and i get glued to this mission.
This mission gave me this sense of Universal and i feel connected and attached even
if i'm surrounded by strangers, colleagues or neighbours. Babaji gave us the sense
of living and let's work for it. Dhan Niankar ji.
Main Vichar by Rev. Dr. Rai Ji:
Dr. Rai started the main Vichar by congratulating the great mothers of the
Mission/sangat on Mother's day for their outstanding efforts and devotion.
He also mentioned that I can see a ray of hope on the faces of brothers too
because the Father's day is coming next month too.
The world is sick of war and desires peace, yet wars and preparations for war
continue. People wish to banish enmity and to usher in an era of friendship, yet
rivalry and hatred perpetuate hard feelings which separate man from man.
Many believe in and talk about Brotherhood, but we see everywhere the failure of
unity and harmony.
Theosophy (belief in God)not only says that Universal Brotherhood is a fact in
Nature, but goes further and shows how it can be brought about by each one
practicing it in his own life.
The first and most important of the Three Objects of the Theosophical Movement:
is to form the nucleus of a Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction
of race, creed, caste or color (3rd principle of the Mission).
What are the obstacles we have to overcome, what the pitfalls we have to avoid, if
we desire to be brotherly to others, if we wish our community and our nation to
live in unity and harmony with other people and other countries?
First, there is the concept of race. On every continent, in one form or another,
the problem exists. It is caused by the spirit of arrogance.We have a perfect
example of this with Adolf Hitler. He thought his race was primitive so he tried to
destroy all the other races
Secondly, there is the bar erected by the concept of creed and religion. Religions
divide man from man as perhaps nothing else does.
Thirdly, there is the obstacle to Brotherhood caused by the existence of castes and
classes. Indians suffer from it most atrociously.In the West, this obstacle to
Universal Brotherhood takes other forms.
Theosophy says to the individual—begin with yourself. As a starting point,
recognize that both those classes of people, the evildoer and the sectarian are
your brothers,(Eko Noor Hai Sabh de under Nar hai chahe nari hai, Brahaman Khatri
Vais Harijan Ek di khalkat sari hai..Avtar Vani)
Confucius has said: “Robbers disappear from a kingdom where the king is honest."
In history and in our own experience there is abundant evidence that the Bhagavad-
Gita is right in saying "spiritual knowledge includes every action without
exception," and that it is to be attained by means of devotion.
You should read the books that you can understand, and soak up all that good
Dhan Nirankar ji !
