Biography

During his fifteen-year ministry, Dayal Purush Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj demonstrated how to put spirituality into action and attain spiritual fulfillment within the context of modern life. He believed in positive mysticism, pursuing spiritual goals, while fulfilling duties to family, society, and the world. During his four world tours, 1978, 1983, 1986, and 1988, he expanded the number of Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission/Science of Spirituality centers to five hundred fifty in forty countries. He helped people find peace, joy, and spiritual upliftment through meditation, while spreading love to all those around him.

He worked tirelessly to spread the spiritual message of Hazur Baba Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj and Param Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj throughout the world. Under his guidance, the literature of the Masters was translated into over fifty languages. Acclaimed as one of the world’s leading mystic poets writing in Urdu, he won four Urdu Academy Awards. The Dharmic Ramlila Committee also honored him for his poetry. The Government of India produced an anthology of mystic literature throughout the ages and included many of the gracious Master’s poems. His verses are still sung by recording artists and broadcast on radio and television.

On 27th July 1980, he started Master’s Day, an international day of observance to be celebrated on the fourth Sunday of July, in which people of all religions join together to worship their own spiritual founders and saints. In 1981, he presided over the Sixth World Fellowship of Religions Conference and the Asian Conference of Religions for Peace. In 1988, he presided over the inaugural and concluding sessions of the Fifteenth International Human Unity Conference in Delhi.

Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj received many tributes and civic honors for his work toward peace. In the United States, he was honored by the House of Representatives. In Colombia, he received the Medal of Congress; and he was given the keys to many cities throughout the world. In New York, he was invited to the United Nations to confer with Dr. Robert Muller, former assistant secretary general to the United Nations and co-founder of the University for Peace in Costa Rica. A pamphlet of their meeting and discussion was later published under the title, “Ambassadors of Peace,” and distributed worldwide.

The gracious Master’s talks have been broadcast regularly to millions of youths in South America. Former President Giani Zail Singh visited him at Kirpal Ashram and participated in many conferences Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj sponsored.

During the course of his ministry, he gave many people an opportunity to enrich their lives through meditation, initiating over 77,000 seekers into the Light and Sound of God.

As a prism reflects the rays of the sun creating the various colors of the rainbow, Dayal Purush Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj reflected God's Light and Love to the world. Through his love, compassion, satsangs, tours, conferences, meetings with social, civic, and religious heads, writings, and sublime poetry, he touched the hearts of everyone he met.
