Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj opens the Science of Spirituality Center in Perth Amboy, NJ

New York: Renowned spiritual Master Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj is in New Jersey and New York this weekend to offer a series of talks focused on how we can transform our lives through meditation. Head of Science of Spirituality/Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission, he travels the globe, spreading the message of inner and outer peace through spirituality.

The spiritual Master’s first stop in the tri-state area was in New Jersey on Wednesday to dedicate the newest Science of Spirituality Center in the United States. Located in Perth Amboy, home to large Spanish and Hindi speaking communities, the Science of Spirituality New Jersey Meditation Center is located in the waterfront district.

Upon arrival, accompanied by his wife, Mata Rita Ji, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj toured the grounds and the building which hosts a library, an office, rooms for children and young adults, a book store, and a large kitchen. Walking in to the meditation hall, he cut the ribbon, inaugurating the building. To date, Science of Spirituality/Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission has 2058 centers in 54 countries around the world. The Perth Amboy Center makes 2059.

Taking his place on the dais, the spiritual Master began his talk with a verse from the poet-saint of India, of Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj;

When the flowers of church, mosque, and temple gather together,

Spring will blossom forth in your garden, O Lord.

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.

The New York segment of the weekend program continued at the Science of Spirituality Meditation Center in Amityville, Long Island with a Friday night talk in Hindi, attended by thousands of people. Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj’s final discourse in the tristate area will be a 2 pm talk on Sunday, May 1: “Meditation to Access Spiritual Realms,” followed by initiation.

In a historic first, The South Asian Times issued a16-page special pictorial supplement in five languages -- English, Spanish, Hindi, Punjabi, and Gujarati - about Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj, his Mission, and his NJ-NY visit
