Rich tributes were paid and inspiration taken from the life and teachings of Nirankari Mata Savinder Hardev Ji Maharaj here yesterday. A special congregation was held in Ground No.8, Burari Road immediately in the afternoon after the last rites were performed at the CNG Crematorium, Nigam Bodh Ghat. Presiding over the congregation described as Prerna Diwas, Nirankari Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji Maharaj said that Mata Savinder Hardev Ji was not only the mother of her three children but the entire Sadh Sangat. She showered her love and affection on every devotee equally, particularly when she was Spiritual Head of the Mission.
Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji said that to get emotional on such an occasion was but natural. No wonder several devotees were seen with tears in their eyes. Even I had a deep emotional outburst within, but when I saw many of the devotees with wet eyes but a smile at their face, it showed that they had complete faith in God and trusted His will. This encouraged me too not to be emotional.
In fact, Mata Sudiksha Ji said, Mata Savinder Hardev Ji too always taught us right since our childhood to stay connected with God in every situation saying that He will certainly look after us and solve our problems. Even Avtar Bani says that to obey the will of God is the best ornament of the life of saints.
Mata Sudiksha Ji further said that from worldly point of view anybody who loses both his father and mother is called an orphan. But here Satguru has given us God as Father and Sadh Sangat as the Mother. Hence, we can never be orphans, she said.
During the congregation that lasted for more than 7 hours, several senior Pracharaks and Prabandhaks from across the world paid their tributes to Mata Savinder Hardev Ji and said that she inspired us to spread the message of this Mission of love, peace, tolerance and brotherhood not only through her holy discourses but while living the same also. No doubt, she did not make long speeches but each and every word was useful to improve our life and be a source of inspiration for others. Tributes were also paid by several members of the holy family and their relatives. A short poetic symposium was also a part of the congregation.
Among important dignitaries who came during the congregation and paid their respects included Satyendra Kumar Jain, Minister for Health, Government of Delhi, Manoj Tiwari, Member of Parliament and Bhupinder Singh Hooda, former Chief Minister of Haryana.
