Satsang Programme in the Divine Presence of
Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji Maharaj

Samagam Ground No. 8, Nirankari Chowk, Delhi: October 28, 2018

The Sunday Satsang programme in Delhi was held at Ground No.8. Since Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji Maharaj was blessing the Sangat after a considerable gap of time, the congregation was attended by a large number of devotees from Delhi and adjoining areas. Addressing the gathering, Her Holiness said:

“Just now Sewa (Selfless Service) was mentioned during the congregation again and again. We are all conscious of the coming Samagam (in Samalkha). Hitherto the Samagam was held in Delhi all these years, even though the venue remained changing. Sometime it was held at Delhi Gate, then near Red Fort and the Samagam Ground opposite Sarovar Complex. We are, however, holding the coming Samagam in Samalkha in Haryana. I find that the enthusiasm about the preparations for the Samagam is the same as we saw in Delhi. All are making efforts so that the devotees coming from outside find their stay convenient for them.

No doubt, till last month the Ground appeared to be uneven and full of wild bushes. All the devotees have been working hard and leveling the Ground so that the visiting devotees face no problem of pieces of stone in residential tents. In fact, such pieces of stone have already been removed.

I find the improvement every week. For example, when we see the shed being erected for the main Satsang Pandal, we find it is progressing every day and nearing completion. The work is going on speedily because of you all devotees taking part in the preparations.

At Samagam Ground, Sewa starts at 6:30 AM or 7:00 AM and the devotees work till sunset. They include children, youth and the old who never feel tired. Their enthusiasm for Sewa does not get reduced. Neither they feel any lethargy. I go and see them towards sunset almost every day and they all come for Namaskar. Their only prayer is that they may be given more Sewa since the present work is not enough.

Sewa has a great value in our life. We should, therefore, be clear in our mind about the cause we are serving. When we talk about physical service, just as I mentioned, it may be in the Samagam Ground, in Langar, at gates or in traffic etc., it is being rendered mainly by Sewadal. Those who participate in Satsang, however, are also doing Sewa.

There is a very narrow line between physical service and service through Satsang. If we think we are helping someone, it may give us a feeling of ego. We may think that we are obliging the other person. However, if we help others treating them as images of God, it becomes Sewa. Even in the organised Sewa, if we see the image of God in everyone and do Sewa, remaining in discipline or obeying instructions of our seniors, it will be a real Sewa.

May God bless us all so that as the Samagam approaches, our enthusiasm for selfless service also goes on increasing. Along with physical service let us keep our mind free from ego. Instead of saying that we have made a big contribution, let us say that it was nothing. So long as we have this attitude, our Sewa will also be welcomed and appreciated. As regards Sewa in terms of money, we may do it either by Namaskar or building fund, Samagam Sewa etc. where we get receipts to maintain its transparency. Let us pray so that we can do more and more Sewa in this form also.”
