Jai Gurudev Ji
We have heard from time immemorial of Saints, prophets who devoted their lives to the service of humanity. So far, almost all such figures like Jesus Christ, Guru Ravidass Ji, came into this world and left for heavenly abode before “we” came on the scene. We revere them, worship them, admire them and use their lifestyle and guidance as a tool to live our own lives. There have been numerous figures in history who, in different religions, different geographies and environments sacrificed their whole lives to uphold the basic freedom that every human being should enjoy.
In the contemporary world, where we revere our saviours from the past, a personality with the name of Saint (Sant) Rama Nand Ji of Ravidassia Community, who walked amongst us, lived amongst us, sacrificed his whole life to uplift millions of downtrodden people in India. He wholeheartedly spread the mission of Guru Ravidass Ji across the world, and in his lifetime played a crucial role in establishing charitable hospitals, schools to serve the poor. He spent his every moment in life to devise ways to guide, love and serve others. His indefatigable spirit, untiring physical efforts and unique and energetic style of Kirtan (Religious Singing) to spread mission of Guru Ravidass Ji has been unmatchable. He finally sacrificed his life for the mission of humanity thus joining many others who walked the same path in history, for the sake of making world a better place to live.
Now is the time and chance to do our part by honouring Saint Rama Nand Ji.
Ravidassia Community of Toronto has teamed with Credit Valley Hospital Foundation, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada to dedicate a Patient Room as shown side, in honour of Saint Rama Nand Ji. The total cost of this project is approximately $25,000 Canadian Dollars. This noble cause will honour Saint Rama Nand Ji, and his life-long struggle to improve the lives of millions of untouchables in India and bring Ravidassia Community into mainstream.
Shri Guru Ravidass Sabha Ontario is a Registered Charitable organization in Canada. It is the only Ravidassia institution in the Province of Ontario. Our temple was established with the blessings of Ravidassia Worldwide Religious Head, Shri 108 Sant Niranjan Dass Ji and the Great Martyr Shri 108 Sant Rama Nand Ji of Dera Sachkhand Ballan, Jalandhar, Punjab, India. Temple is open to public from all walks of life and acts as a centre of community unity and worship.Since January 2010, according to diktats from Shri Guru Ravaidass Birthplace Temple, Seer Goverdhanpur, Varanasi, India, our ultimate place of worship, we adopted 'Amrit Bani Shri Guru Ravidass Ji' as our Holy Scriptures.
