The Sant Nirankari Mission lost a devoted saint (Roshan Minar), Rev. R.S. Kapoor Ji, on 24th January, 2021 in the early hours. Having being born on 24th January 1931, he had incidentally turned exactly 90 years on that day itself.
Rev. Kapoor Ji was an extremely gifted soul, with excellence in the field of education and devotion. He received Brahmgyan (God Knowledge) from Baba Avtar Singh Ji Maharaj in 1962 and preached the same all his life through his profound discourses and talks, that were embellished with deep knowledge and understanding of the Mission and the scriptures.
After serving the education department of Haryana for many years, he took up the Sewa of improving the education structure of various schools being run by the Sant Nirankari Mission as per the blessings of Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Maharaj. The Nirankari school branches that he served in various capacities like Principal, Manager and Chairman etc. include Pahar Ganj, Avtar Enclave and Tilak Nagar. He was later blessed with membership of Sant Nirankari Charitable Foundation and finally also as Member Incharge (Education) in Sant Nirankari Mandal.
He performed his Sewa with complete integrity and commitment during the era of Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj and Mata Savinder Hardev Ji Maharaj also. Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji Maharaj embellished his contributions with the title of ‘Roshan Minar’ in November 2018.
The faith, devotion and knowledge of Kapoor Sahib will continue to inspire many in times to come.
Owing to the Covid-19 protocol, the last rites were performed by the family and few saints near his residence in Mohali, on 25th January, 2021.
Prerna Diwas in remembrance of Rev. R.S. Kapoor Ji (Roshan Minar) was held virtually on January 26th, 2021 and saints from all over the globe participated to share condolences.
