Sant Rajinder Singh steals show at UN

NEW YORK, NY-- Renowned spiritual master Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj, head of Science of Spirituality, is no stranger to the United Nations (UN).

He was a featured speaker at the Millennium World Summit in 2000, when he delivered his message of inner and outer peace through spirituality to an international audience of religious and spiritual leaders.

On May 3, he once again gave his address at the hallowed institution, sponsored by the UNSRC SaluS Well Being Network Club in collaboration with Science of Spirituality. Appropriate to the occasion, his topic was, “Meditation as Medication for the Soul,” based on the title of his book by the same name.

The Reverend Susana Bastarrica, president, UNSRC SaluS Well Being Network, and Vijay Nambiar, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s special advisor, introduced the spiritual master, welcoming him to the UN.


For the next hour, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke to an attentive audience about the benefits of meditation, emphasizing that relaxation, stress relief, better concentration, and improved relationships are byproducts of meditation, not its sole purpose.


He said the prime purpose of stilling the body and stilling the mind in meditation was to experience God within ourselves. He also said that in meeting with world leaders, he found they were seeking peaceful solutions to conflict.

“They are realizing that becoming more peaceful themselves through an interest in meditation, they are able to make better judgements in challenging situations”, said the sant.


Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj’s life and work can be summed up as a continuous journey of love and service. His peace paradigm, transforming lives through meditation, is an achievable construct that will heal the world one soul at a time. As head of Science of Spirituality, he is internationally recognized for his work toward promoting human unity.


Among his many awards and tributes are five honorary doctorates for his tireless efforts in this field. His is a message of hope and promise, a light dispelling darkness in troubled times.
