Annual Virtual Celebration of Baba Virsa Singh ji’s B’dayFeb 19-21 2021 From the Team

July 4, 2021 (originally March 5)

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Maharaj ji’s Mission,

 I greet you with great love and Maharaj ji’s blessings. We are all still aglow from the light that you generated in February. We apologize for the delay but wanted this to coincide with the announcement that after painstaking editing of sound and lighting, the Videos are finally ready. We know you’ll enjoy reliving the experiences.

We still feel the love in our hearts. For those of you not able to join us, we look forward to welcoming you next time. 

For those who did participate, I can’t tell you the excitement in everyone’s voices every time I talk with people. You have truly brought Maharaj ji’s mission to life and extended His love and blessings to so many of the world-wide sangat. The energy is truly amazing!

We are still hearing regularly what a wonderful experience you all had and how it has not only brought you closer together as a sangat, but that it has brought you closer to Maharaj ji. This was our main goal.

Gathering to retrace Maharaj ji’s history, getting to share our stories, and listen to the next generation share their hopes for the future provided heart felt moments which brought us to tears, and gave us so much food for thought going forward. 

Our action steps

The videos consumed our time and now we will have time to reflect on next steps. 

There will be a separate section on the website with updates, and shared on our various social media platforms. 

The summary boards of the breakouts are still being assembled to share highlights. 

In the meantime, we’re considering many requests to meet more regularly and considering what can be done to include a program for children. 

We will schedule the next full virtual celebration so it doesn’t conflict with the on-the-ground celebrations to allow those in Gobind Sadan full time to attend to those who can make the trip. 

We look forward to hearing from everyone and will be in touch shortly with updates.

Once again for all those who took their time to make this happen and our leadership without whose support this wouldn’t have been possible, we offer great thanks and look forward to our next time together.

May Maharaj ji’s Name and Nam and Jaap Sahib echo throughout the world and may you all be filled with His light and love

Special thanks to all who made this event possible
