Devotees’ self less surrender helps them attain heights
With the divine blessings of Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji Maharaj, Mukti Parv Samagam was successfully organised at the Sant Nirankari Satsang Bhawan, Sector 30-A, Chandigarh, Shri Niranjan Singh Ji (I.A.S Retd.). addressing on the significance of this occasion, Shri Singh Ji stated that Nirankaris celebrate Mukti Parv on this day to commemorate and pay tribute to the saints who devotedly surrendered their lives in spreading and promoting truth.
While Mukti Parv was celebrated through all the branches in India and abroad, the main congregation was held in the benign presence of Satguru Mata Ji at Delhi. Nirankari Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji, while addressing a huge gathering at the Mukti Parv Samagam, stated that to surrender selflessly and giving up one’s ego is the most important quality of a devotee. This helps him rise in the eyes of the True Master and earn praise from one and all. Thousands of devotees came from Delhi, Greater Delhi and several other parts of the country.Several saints from abroad were also present.
Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji said that during Mukti Parv, the Mission remembers and takes inspiration from Shahenshah Baba Avtar Singh Ji and a host of devotees who followed him and took this Mission forward. Their most important quality was self-surrender at the holy feet of the True Master and the spirit of giving priority and more importance to others. There were no ‘Ifs’ and ‘Buts’ in their conduct.
Her Holiness reminded that Baba Hardev Singh Ji and Mata SavinderHardevJi also wanted to bring back the Mission of the times of ShahenshahJi. And this can happen only if we also develop the quality of egoless surrender and giving preference to others like the devotees of those times.
Mata Sudiksha Ji said that while sailing a boat we cannot control the strong winds but we can always adjust our sails. Hence, we can also take inspiration from ShahenshahJi and the advantage of those principles with the spirit of total surrender.

But when the first President of the Sant Nirankari Mission PradhanLabh SinghJi breathed his last on this day in 1979, Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji named it as Mukti Parv Samagam.
