Know Thyself As Soul

Events

Make meditation, devotion, faith, and contentment all part of your life, because these elements are inseparable.
Sant Baljit Singh Ji

Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra organizes events during devotional festivals and commemorative occasions as a free service to those who wish to come together to celebrate these festivals in grandeur, but may not be able to afford the associated costs. These events also offer free food, accommodation, and medical services, around the clock as well as charitable activities for the surrounding communities.

Spiritual Discourses (Satsangs)

On special occasions, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra hosts events that feature a spiritual discourse by Sant Baljit Singh Ji. Often, the events offer the opportunity to learn the meditation on the inner Light and Sound.

The events are guided by the cornerstones of Sant Baljit Singh Ji’s teachings of unity in diversity, service to humanity, compassion for all, a natural lifestyle, and devotion to the omnipresent God pervading all. These teachings inspire accompanying charitable activities to serve the event attendees and surrounding communities. The activities include medical camps, blood donation camps, and distributing educational material to underprivileged students.

Navratri

The Navratri festival, usually held for nine days, celebrates Goddess Durga and her nine divine forms: Shailaputri Maa, Brahmacharini Maa, Chandraghanta Maa, Kushmanda Maa, Skandmata Maa, Katyayani Maa, Kalratri Maa, Mahagauri Maa, and Sidhidatri Maa. Each day of the festival is associated with one form of Goddess Durga. A sacred text—the Devi Mahatmya (The Glory of the Goddess)—explains the extraordinary virtues and greatness of each form and is read as a reminder about them.

The spring and autumn Navratri Festivals are celebrated each year at Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra, Nawan Nagar, India. We are pleased to share stories of these celebrations.

Sawan Month

The auspicious month of Sawan or Shravan is dedicated to Lord Shiva, the supreme being. He has the role of protecting, transforming, creating, and recreating the material universe. In his highest form, Lord Shiva is timeless and absolute reality, without form or limits. He represents the primal soul, atman, and the value of meditation, devotion, and self-discipline.

In recognition of Lord Shiva at this time of year, millions of people (Kawariyas) traditionally go on religious pilgrimages, bathe in sacred rivers, and make resolutions to demonstrate their love and devotion for the Divine. Here are some stories of these celebrations.
