Eight days of celebrations, 3 major public functions, continuous Akhand Paths, prayers, kirtan, and havans, a kavi darbar (poet’s court) and nightly cultural programs capped by a 4 hour tribute to Babaji by Punjab’s most famous popular singer, Gurdas Mann. This was Baba Virsa Singh ji’s birthday week 2007 at Gobind Sadan.


Sunday – Gurdas Mann

February 18th to 25th marked an amazingly full and blessed time for Gobind Sadan as devotees from Russia, the U.S., India and many other countries converged to celebrate the birthday of their beloved Baba Virsa Singh.

Babaji stressed that the main focus of the celebration should be “tapasya,” or spiritual practice, and to complement the 24 prayer cycle, organizers put together events to spotlight key areas of Babaji’s lifetime work and provided entertainment each night to the gathering.


Sangats from different areas took turns at the large havan near the main gate.
“Keep growing in love for your Master. Do not look to this side or that or even at the path ahead, because people will always be criticizing you.”

Baba Virsa Singh

“Trees do not wear crosses, but the great spiritual beings see God in trees. Water has no symbols, but Guru Gobind Singh says, ‘My God is in water.”

Baba Virsa Singh JI

"We do spiritual practices to gradually prepare the way for enlightenment. It does not come immediately."

Baba Virsa Singh JI

"Management does not change things. It is God who changes people."

Baba Virsa Singh JI

"Our mind is not controlled. It is a fire fed by wood from the whole world."

Baba Virsa Singh JI

"Think that everything in this world exists with God’s blessings, whether we regard it as pleasant or unpleasant."

Baba Virsa Singh JI

"First look within yourself, and then you will see God everywhere."

Baba Virsa Singh JI

"If we keep faith and love in difficulties, and pray for those who abuse us, we will always remain happy & free."
