Expansion

The Mission has found tremendous expansion in all directions since 1980. The ever-increasing number of participants in the Samagams in Delhi and other places bears testimony to the fact that the message of the Mission is going home and attracting the seekers of truth.

The attendance at the regular congregations is also growing thicker and thicker. A number of new branches of the Mission have been set up and so is the case with Satsang Bhawans. Many new Missionaries have been appointed in order to reach out places far and wide. The North Eastern and Southern States of India are also now fully familiar with the Mission and its philosophy and more and more branches are being set up in the various parts of these areas.

Today Delhi and Greater Delhi have 30 Sectors, while the country is divided into 50 Zones. There is a provision of constant co-ordination at every level as also between the Headquarters and the smallest branch of the Mission. Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj has been quite meticulous in his approach to the organizational requirements of the fast expanding Mission.

He convened a conference in Delhi in March, 1987, on the lines of the two Mussoorie Conferences convened by Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji in 1965 and in 1973. Termed as a Special General Body Meeting of the Sant Nirankari Mandal, it reviewed the decisions taken at Mussoorie and re-emphasized the areas that were considered relevant in the contemporary perspective.

In addition, it was decided to organise blood donation camps at different places on the occasion of Manav Ekta Divas as a gesture of selfless service to humanity and a humble acknowledgement of the supreme sacrifice of Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji for the noble cause of human welfare.

Another important decision of this Conference was to set up a full-fledged Department of Social Welfare and place it under the charge of a Member of the Executive Committee of the Sant Nirankari Mandal. The Nirankari Sarovar Complex with its 5-acre reservoir of neat and clean water and another 20 acres of lush green lawns with rows of beautiful flower plants, the Complex is already a valuable anti-pollution gift to Delhi ecology.

In the same complex we have today a prestigious institution of the Mission, the Nirankari Museum - Journey Divine. Established in 2005, it is a fine presentation of the Mission's ideology in the latest audio-visual and still camera technology.

Trained volunteers take the visitors round and explain each item to them. Baba Ji inaugurated the 8th International Conference on Corporate Governance in London on September 20, 2007 and called upon the audience that 'as members of human family it is important for them to imbibe the values of love, compassion, tolerance, forgiveness and clean life based on principles which form the foundation of a good human being, which shape one's character and reflect in one's actions'.

In this way, His Holiness underlined the relevance of the teachings of the Mission even for the Corporate Sector. Similarly, Baba Ji visited the 27-Nation European Parliament in Strasbourg on September 26, 2007 and met its President. Here also the Mission's focus on human unity, religious harmony, love, peace and truth found deep appreciation.
