Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj


Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj (1921-1989) is known as the poet-saint of India. He received his spiritual training from the great saint of Beas, Hazur Baba Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj and from his illustrious father, Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj

In 1974, when Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj’s spiritual ministry came to an end, the task of carrying on his mission was passed to Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj. He was head of Science of Spirituality/Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission for fifteen years, from 1974 to 1989, and was president of the World Fellowships of Religions and the World Unity of Man Society. In 1983, the Colombian Parliament honoured him with its Medal of Congress.

He maintained we are spirit and function in the world through a mind and body. To realize our full potential, we need to develop spiritually without neglecting our physical health or intellectual growth.

Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj’s life was a testimony of his message of positive mysticism, pursuing spiritual development while living in the mainstream. Alongside his spiritual practices, as a young man he took an active part in athletics, college debates, and literary activities. Having entered government service in 1942, he retired as deputy secretary of the government of India after thirty-seven years of distinguished service.

His work as a poet rose directly from his spiritual life, and during his lifetime he was regarded as the greatest living mystic poet in the Urdu language. He won four awards from the Urdu Academy for his collections of poetry.

Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj was imbued with love for all creation. Divine love was his hallmark and was reflected in his every word and action. As he said in one of his verses:

What does it matter if I'm called a man;
In truth, I am the very soul of love.
The entire earth is my home,
And the universe my country.

We at Darshan Academy are honoured that the schools are named after this great spiritual Master whose life was dedicated to spreading the message of peace, love and human unity.
