Sant Kirpal Singh’s life of selfless service was a shining inspiration for others to follow.
In keeping with His motto "Be good – do good – be one", he exemplified that being human means not only living for yourself, but serving others. His life not only inspired His disciples, it is also an example for future generations.
In this section you will find a selection of pictures demonstrating the life and work of Sant Kirpal Singh – His early years, the time of discipleship at the feet of His Master Baba Sawan Singh and the main activities during His tenure from 1948 till 1974 including His three world tours.
All the religions agree that Life, Light and Love are the three phases of the Supreme Source of all that exists. These essential attributes of the Divinity that is One, though designated differently by the prophets and peoples of the world, are also wrought in the very pattern of every sentient being. It is in this vast ocean of Love, Light and Life that we live, have our very being and move about and yet, strange as it may seem, like the proverbial fish in water, we do not know this truth and much less practise it in our daily life and hence the endless fear, helplessness and misery that we see around us in the world, inspite of all our laudable efforts and sincere strivings to get rid of them. Love is the only touch-stone wherewith we can measure the understanding of the twin principles of Life and Light in us and how far we have travelled on the path of self-knowledge and God-knowledge.
Sant Kirpal Singh
Sant Kirpal Singh was elected President of the World Fellowship of Religions when it was brought into being in 1957. The first Conference took place in the same year in Delhi. Four World Conferences were held in India, followed by several regional conferences in Persia, France and Germany.
Those who do wish to awaken are told by the Masters, "Develop love for God; be conscious." We say we can see only the world; living in its society, enjoying every minute – we are too involved and become identified with it. How can we love God unless we see Him? For that we are advised to "Take the Satguru's teaching."
