How to be Kind with Everykind
On World Kindness Day, it is especially important in this day and age to remind ourselves that we should be kind to Everykind not just Mankind. In this day and age, when it is all about being superior to others, kindness among people has been lost somewhere. Sometimes in the name of religion, sometimes in the name of caste and sometimes in the name of some festival, people become cruel towards other people and other living beings. But Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj has imparted the True knowledge that one must be kind to all religions, castes and other living beings and treat all equally, with the slogan
Race is Our Living Being Mankind is our Religion |
Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian there is no Separate Religion. ||
From time to time, knowledge about compassion is also imparted to people at events organized by Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj by spreading social awareness. Sant Rampal Ji is strictly against such activities as eating meat, which shows that compassion towards other living beings is also necessary. Even in the scriptures of all religions, kindness is described as the greatest quality of man. Therefore, readers are requested to listen to the knowledge of Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj Ji and understand the religious scriptures and be kind to human beings and other living beings.
