A Blood Donation Camp at Sant Nirankari Satsang Bhawan, Tracy, was organized on April 28, 2024, from 10 am- 5 pm with the blessings of the head of the Sant Nirankari Mission (SNM), Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji Maharaj.

Sant NirankariTo commemorate the teachings of Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji, which is observed as ‘Manav Ekta Diwas- Human Unity Day’, blood drives were organized by the SNM Tracy on 28th April. The Sant Nirankari Mission has distinguished itself as a leading blood-donating voluntary organization. Since 1986, SNM has been conducting Blood drives across the centers in the month of April as a tribute to Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Maharaj.

The first Blood Donation Camp at Tracy was organized in 1992. Blood donation is a life-saving act that has many benefits for both donors and recipients. According to the American Red Cross, one donation can save as many as three lives, and someone in the United States needs blood every two seconds. Blood and platelets cannot be manufactured; they can only come from volunteer donors. In the Tracy Blood camp, around 56 volunteers donated blood and a total of 35 units of blood were collected..

Sant NirankariThe Blood Donation Camp was conducted in partnership with the American Red Cross. Much enthusiasm and a feeling of Humanity were observed among all the volunteers. On the blood donation camp day, every donor’s hemoglobin and blood group was checked. The criteria to donate blood was to at least have a hemoglobin of 13 gm% and 12.5 gm% for males and females, respectively.

There were a few who could not satisfy the criteria and one could see sadness in their eyes as they could not contribute to the noble cause. It was energizing to see elderly donor volunteers guiding and cheering the young blood donors(16 years old). “Blood should flow in veins not in drains”. The devotees of Sant Nirankari Mission are giving practical meaning to this message by working selflessly in serving humanity day and night, and are taking the initiative to greater heights under the able guidance of present Satguru Mata Sudiksha ji Maharaj, for the welfare of mankind and for the development of the society as a whole. “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” -the whole world is one (my) family. We belong to the whole world and the whole of humanity falls within the ambit of our activity.

Sant NirankariWhile Blood drive was organized in the dining hall, a satsang program continued in the main hall. Various saints got an opportunity to share their thoughts on the topic of human unity and oneness and also the inspirational life of Baba Gurbachan Singh ji through speeches, poems and songs.

In the end Rev Dr I S Rai ji addressed the congregation through his discourse and shared how Babaji was instrumental in forming satsangs and bhavans in the cities that he visited along with Pujya Rajamataji.

The Sant Nirankari Mission is essentially a spiritual movement. Its principal commitment to its followers is to make their minds conscious of the Eternal Reality and unite their Soul with the Creator, the Formless God.

Sant NirankariThe Mission believes that ignorance and superstition are the biggest obstacles in man’s path to real progress and happiness. The narrow-mindedness, hatred and pride brooded by them are the most vicious source of trouble for mankind.

The Mission endeavors to remove the same by making spiritual enlightenment within the reach of every man and woman–young or old, rich or poor, high or low, educated or illiterate, whatever the language, faith or culture, whatever the state or the nation.
