On the auspicious occasion of the 75th foundation day of Dera Sacha Sauda, the world’s top spiritual hub, the enthusiasm of the devotees created a new history. The day is also celebrated as the anniversary of ‘Jaam-E-Insan Guru Ka’ and this year, it was the 16th anniversary that was celebrated by disciples with great fervour & excitement. The disciples celebrate it as the biggest festival of their lives and always feel fortunate to be a part of this epitome of humanity and spirituality.
Millions of devotees were all experiencing this remarkable sensation. An atmosphere of complete contentment permeated in every direction. The spiritual gathering was packed with crowds of people, yet it felt like a secluded haven. Despite the gathering of millions, there was a profound silence with no sound of footsteps approaching.
It was an awe-inspiring spectacle on April 29th, 2023, at Shah Satnam Ji Dham, as millions of devotees from both domestic and foreign lands flocked to celebrate the 75th Foundation Day of Dera Sacha Sauda and mark the 16th anniversary of "Jaam-E-Insan Guru ka"- a blessing imparted to disciples with Nectar to uphold humanitarian principles. The immense gathering was completely immersed and captivated by the spiritual teachings of Guru Ji, resulting in a breathtaking display of religious fervor.
Along with 7 huge pandals, an immense gathering of devotees even covered many kilometers on the roads. Arrangements were made for the Sangat to sit on about 1000 acres of land, but everything seemed to fall short in front of their love & devotion towards Guruji.
The celebrations began with the recitation of the holy slogan, ‘Dhan Dhan Satguru Tera Hi Aasra.’ All the disciples paid gratitude to Saint Dr. MSG for bringing eternal blessedness to their lives with the formation of Dera Sacha Sauda. The sacred program commenced at 11 am and lasted until 1 pm.
The enthusiastic followers from India and abroad flock to Dera Sacha Sauda on this Foundation Day. In order to provide them with a comfortable experience, the Dera Sacha Sauda management committee made all arrangements for their lodging, meals, water supply, and medical attention. Conveniently placed large screens were set up at Shah Mastana Ji Dham and Shah Satnam Ji Dham. Medical professionals were present to offer their services and ensured a safe water supply is maintained.
The excitement of every devotee knew no bounds. Everyone reached and attended the celebrations wholeheartedly. The Dera was flooded with a crowd of devotees who eagerly participated in the festivities and attentively absorbed the spiritual teachings delivered by Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan.
Despite the majority of the congregation area being densely packed with devotees, the atmosphere was completely tranquil, with no distracting sounds to be heard. Although every devotee was physically present, their souls seemed to be enraptured by the magnificent radiance of divine light and the sweet, supernatural melodies. Every devotee was deeply absorbed in the brilliance of this light, feeling disconnected from their surroundings. Everyone was engrossed in the teachings and vision of Guru Ji, so occupied that they were not fully aware of their surroundings.
Their spirits were consumed by visions of the Lord, and the intense attraction to the omnipotent Spiritual Master delighted everyone, surpassing any relief offered by this materialistic world or even heaven itself. Whether rich or poor, each person felt a sense of unbridled joy.
The divine teachings of Adorable Guru Ji were like eternal springs, providing solace from emotional turmoil. On the auspicious occasion of Foundation Day on April 29th, every fortunate soul was able to find such solace and satisfaction.
All the arrangements made by the Dera management proved to be sowing seeds in front of the enthusiasm, passion, and immense faith of the devotees. On this occasion, Revered Guru Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan sent a spiritual letter, which was read out among the gathering. Through the letter, Revered Guru Ji started the 157th humanity welfare work 'Uttam Sanskar', under which the devotees will teach their children about 'humanity and humanity's welfare, the welfare of the universe' daily or 3 times a week.
Through the letter, Respected Guru Ji urged all to live in unity and respect all religions. Apart from this, the devotees of Dera Sacha Sauda have also promised to celebrate the month of May as Bhandara. In the letter, respected Guru Ji told that in the month of May 1948 Beparwah Sai Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj, the founder of Dera Sacha Sauda, had delivered the first Satsang, therefore the Sadh-Sangat will celebrate the last Sunday of this month as Bhandara.
On this auspicious occasion 75 needy families were given ration kits, clothes to 75 underprivileged children, and 175 bird feeders to save birds from scorching summers were distributed, giving impetus to 156 humanity welfare works being run by Dera Sacha Sauda. Apart from this, thousands of needy people were examined free of cost and given correct advice in the Jan Kalyan Parmarthi camp organized at Shah Satnam Ji Specialty Hospital. At the same time, thousands of children were given career guidance under a career counseling camp, thereby the complete day was a celebration with welfare.
Guruji imparted wholehearted blessings to all the devotees through the pious letter. The devotees expressed their gratitude to Guru Ji. Through the pious letter, Guru Ji infused energy and enlightened society with a vision for humanitarianism through the nectar of his teachings in 2007, when Jaam-E-Insan Guru Ka was initiated.
We are forever grateful to Saint Dr. MSG for making us so fortunate and blessing us deeply with spiritual love & benevolence.
