We are all lovers, devotees of a higher power, thousands of lovers, but the Beloved is one for all. He whom we desire is the beloved of the whole world and is the one God for all men, not specifically for Muslims only, or for Hindus only, or for Christians only.

Sant Kirpal Singh’s life of selfless service was a shining inspiration for others to follow.

In keeping with His motto "Be good – do good – be one", he exemplified that being human means not only living for yourself, but serving others. His life not only inspired His disciples, it is also an example for future generations.

In this section you will find a selection of pictures demonstrating the life and work of Sant Kirpal Singh – His early years, the time of discipleship at the feet of His Master Baba Sawan Singh and the main activities during His tenure from 1948 till 1974 including His three world tours.

Sant Kirpal Singh finished all affairs which were still pending. Where He had given a promise, He wrote letters to cancel. He also told that he would not be able to make a fourth World Tour. One task he left to be completed– the future Manav Kendra he had commissioned to be built at the place of his farm. Since that time the project Kirpal Sagar has been developed there.

 

My first Western tour was for four or five months only, and in this short time there was a grand awakening all over the Western hemisphere. There was a genuine surge of seeking for Truth, and when they got it, there was more respect for what they had been given.
