Nirankaris’mission & Christ’s message of Love
The four main pillars of mainstream spirituality are that the formless cosmic God belongs to all; divine revelation is possible through a genuine master; rites and rituals cannot by themselves help us gain divine knowledge and that all true masters, who blessed seekers with revelation of the one formless supreme power, promoted qualities of humanism, altruism, humility, love, mercy, compassion and service. All prophets, scriptures and their messages that transcend divisions, belong to entire humanity.
Jesus Christ said, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfil them.” Christ spoke of God as Spirit, as formless being, there being no exception to this divine principle. He spoke of the significance of knowing the formless with the help of prophets: “I am the gate, whoever enters through me will be saved.” Speaking of surrender, he said, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you.” Christ gave great importance to love, humility and humanism and declared that the humblest are the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. Arrogance and pride have no place here.
Nirankari Baba Hardev Singh Ji advocated selfless service.
‘Life gets a meaning, if it is lived for others,’ he said. True religion is about love and God and the ideal way to live peacefully with all beings. The Sant Nirankari Mission, as an all-embracing religious, socio-spiritual and charitable organisation, promotes the concept of Nirankar, the one formless God, and believes that God can be realised with the grace of a living Satguru, true master.
The Mission’s philosophy is in sync with the teachings of all past prophets and globally accepted scriptures, enjoined by the message, ‘Man is human when entire humankind is his family and he is aware that his real home is God.’ Nirankari Baba Ji said, “No God, no peace; know God, know peace.’ The Mission believes in unconditional love in action through selfless service.
