New Delhi: The Sant Nirankari Mission also known as Universal Brotherhood Mission with a motto of 'Oneness', is an all embracing spiritual movement (neither a new religion nor a sect of an existing religion, but an all-embracing spiritual movement dedicated to human welfare), cutting across all divisions of caste, color, and creed.
The Mission seeks to reveal God realization, also known as 'Nirankar', to all human beings irrespective of their religious faith, sect, or community they're born with and thus liberate them from the shackles of ignorance, superstition, ritualism, and dogmatism in the name of devotion to God.
The mission was founded by renowned Sant Baba Buta Singh ji who had spiritual leaning from the very childhood and had developed a special aptitude for reciting Gurbani.
The Sant Nirankari Mission had its formal beginning on May 25, 1929.
Baba Buta Singh breathed his last in 1943.
Since its inception, the Mission has been serving its purpose under the guidance and blessings of various spiritual gurus.
Mata Savinder Kaur ji has been appointed the new head of the Sant Nirankari Mission after the death of Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj.
SNM has currently over 786 centers across the world.
Sant Nirankari Mission has been awarded with the Mahatama Gandhi Sewa Medal by the Gandhi Global Family for its commitment towards community services.
The Mission advises its followers to observe maximum austerity in marriages and other social functions.
