Five Noble Pledges of Sant Nirankari Mission

The pursuit of Truth is a universal phenomenon. Religious faiths all across the world proclaim to preach it, and amongst them they agree that there is no greater Truth than the Supreme Being, the Creator of the Universe, the Almighty Formless One – Nirankar. The many and varied names for God all represent an omnipresent, all-pervasive, omniscient, and Supreme Entity.

All the sages, seers, saints, gurus and prophets from across time have, therefore, preached the same Ultimate Truth; God. The approach, however, might have been different. The various Holy Scriptures are the milestones representing the flow of Divine Thought. These writings and teachings were meant to reveal the Ultimate Truth. History, however, shows that rituals and dogmas overwhelmed the essential Truth behind these teachings, creating confusion and division between religions, sects, and communities. Continue Reading

Of God Knowledge and God Particle

Getting inquisitive to know about the True meaning of words scientific and spiritualism is not an old concept. As per the formal definitions, the former stands for something which is technical, systematic, logical, precise, exact, controlled etc. whereas, the latter stands for religious, holy, saintly, pious, sacred, devout and divine etc. so as per the dictionary meaning of these two words, they seem to be the antonym of each other. It does rather seem that word logical stands for one end of the spectrum, while the divine for the other end of it. It further leads to the generation of an idea that the person with divine qualities lacks logic and precision in the thoughts, and does not live systematically by controlling his way of life. Further pondering into the matter, it can be analyzed that the word pious means virtuous, dutiful and moral; devout is dedicated, committed ; and saintly is flawless and perfect .i further realize that then why does a discrepancy does creep in while differentiating science and spirituality ? a person who knows science may also be pious, holy , sacred, devout and divine, and above board , saintly also pertains flawless and perfect. Hence one can say that these two words are not at variance with each other.

Different Ways to Pray

There are many ways to pray: prostration, prayer, wheels, pilgrimages, kneeling in church, circumambulating all using the body. Also chanting, verbal prayers and silent or interior prayers. Different people pray in a different way. Like Austere monastic prefer the silent, interior prayers. Whether some work better than others is a matter of how you look at it. Take the example of the prayer wheel. The Tibetans live in icy cold place. Sometimes at 18000 feet above sea level. They have to engage in some sort of physical activity to stimulate the blood circulation. Hence, the rotating of the prayer wheel. Lord Jesus once said that pray ceaselessly. The Tibetans also do this by fixing somewhat bigger sized prayer wheel atop a structure or a post specially set up for this so that it catches the blowing wind and keeps on rotating day and night.
