Sant Nirankari Mission
The Sant Nirankari Mission is a spiritual organization that was founded in 1929 in Peshawar, which is now part of Pakistan. The organization’s primary focus is on promoting the unity of all religions and the realization of God through self-realization. The mission was founded by Baba Buta Singh, who believed that God could be experienced through personal introspection rather than through traditional religious practices.
The mission has grown significantly since its inception, with branches all over the world, including India, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia. The mission holds regular satsangs, which are gatherings where members come together to sing hymns, meditate, and listen to spiritual discourses. The mission also engages in charitable activities, such as providing aid to disaster-stricken areas and supporting education and healthcare initiatives.
One of the key principles of the Sant Nirankari Mission is the importance of a living spiritual guide, who is seen as essential for spiritual growth and guidance. The mission has had several spiritual leaders, known as Satgurus, who are believed to be appointed by God to guide the mission’s followers.
The Sant Nirankari Mission has faced some controversy and opposition in the past, particularly from some Sikh groups who view the organization as a threat to their own religious beliefs. However, the mission has continued to grow and promote its message of spiritual unity and self-realization.
As we all know that we human is the crown creation of God. The objective of human life is to attain God-knowledge. Everyone is searching for God or worshipping through one mode or the other even though without knowing the ultimate reality.
We can see places of worship belonging to different religious faiths and all kinds of rites and rituals being performed individually and collectively by the people.
It is also acknowledged by sages and saints that God can be realized by blessings of the sadhguru’s only.
no one can claim that whom he is worshipping is the only true god. Here we will see “how to find God” we can also say Discovery of God. (Inspired by Sant Nirankari mission)
As we all know that God created the Universe like sky, earth, air, water, sun, moon, stars, human, animals and other species. One of the beautiful creations of God is human.
“There is one God-the Eternal Truth,
True is his Name, all-pervading divine spirit,
The Creator, The Supreme being
(Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent),
Without fear, without enmity,
Immortal Reality, Unborn, Self-existent,
Realized through the Grace of the Guru.”
The Saints and sages have made it clear that God is the ocean of peace and divinity no doubt about it. There cannot be any peace without God, and no God – realization is possible without the grace of the our Sadhguru.
Unfortunately, we forget God (the Creator) and fell in the glamour of materialism and detracted from the main aim of human life and we keep on working day-night to earn more and more money-wealth by fair and unfair means to unlimited extent.
Saint talks about God and wishes to convey the message of the Truth but people ignoring him saying we have no time for this. Our gurus and saints repeatedly telling people not to remain engrossed in the worldly affairs and try to achieve the higher goal of life that is GOD realization for which he got this precious human life and Sant Nirankari mission is exactly doing the same.
The question is how to find God?
The answer is very simple the ultimate reality, the eternal truth, the invisible formless sprit of all pervading God cannot be visualized and known to anybody without the kind grace of the perfect True Master.
how to find God within you?
The sadhu tells us there is no need to go to the forest in search of the Omnipresent God. God is within you, self-existent, present everywhere in each and every atom. Guru also says God is in invisible formless on by through the grace of their respective perfect gurus.
Jesus rightly said, The kingdom of God is at hand and so it has been stated in other scriptures that the face of Allah, God and Ram, The Omnipresent, can be unveiled to the sincere seekers by the perfect True master and this is how we can find god within yourself bible verse.
You don’t need to search anywhere it’s in you. Sant Nirankari mission Baba Hardev Singhji is imparting the divine knowledge and revealing the truth to every human being at mere asking regardless of one’s caste, colour, dress and culture or country.
This is an era of science and technology, but still we need divine knowledge and this have been reiterated by our great sadhgurus whose aim has always been to dispel and darkness of ignorance and to illuminate the minds of the millions, to dispense divine knowledge and thereby to grant peace, bliss and salvation to every human being living in any part of the globe.
Who is GOD? What’s it’s role?
Some salient attributes of GOD are- he is the Creator, the Sustainer and the Destroyer. He is formless, shapeless, colourless, omnipresent, omniscient, pervading all self-existent and immortal which means God was, is and always be there.

And I never lose sight of him.”

“I shall unfold to you in its entirety the divine wisdom-
Knowledge of God in its absolute formless aspect
Having known which nothing else remains yet to be known in this world.”
At the end God created man in his own image and thus man is the most beautiful creation by God. There is a specific purpose of human life and that is to know and realize the omnipresent all-pervading spirit of God- the father of all living and non-living thing in this universe.
Our purpose is not just Eat, Drink and Marry and die, the aim of our life is to know GOD the creator who has given us this beautiful gift in the form of body. Man without God is like a fish without water or a tree without the fruit or flower without fragrance. The soul without God remains unsatisfied and cannot attain peace and at last man departs from this world knowing well that even a needle does not go along with him.
In this way the Sant Nirankari Mission organization is making an important contribution to the society, which is commendable and wonderful.
