Sant Daya Singh Ji

Sant Daya Singh ji became the Jathedar of Damdami Taksal after Giani Bhai Sant Singh ji. Sant ji would daily perform Katha at Darbar Sahib and teach his students the knowledge of Gurbani in the Parkarma. Gursikhs were made into great Kathakars (preachers) and paathis (readers of Gurbani) by Sant ji. One of their best students was Giani Bhagvan Singh ji who wrote Gurbani sateeks and was later honored with the Seva of being Jathedar of Damdami Taksal.

The son of Bhai Daya Singh ji was involved in a murder. The courts decided that he would be hung. The Gursikh sangat asked Sant ji what should be done to save him. Sant ji declared that what will be, will be, they stayed within the Hukam of Akal Purkh and their son was hung. They didn't show any attachment or ego throughout this period. They stated the following to their widowed daughter in law: "Your husband has passed away. If you want worldly pleasures, then you can leave but if you want the happiness of Guru Sahib ji, then stay and take part in the langar seva of the Gursikh sangat." She decided to stay and defeated her attachment of worldly pleasures. Whoever did the sangat of Sant ji would defeat this attachment also.

Sant ji were strict in their rehat (discipline) and along with doing a lot of meditation, they would preach Gursikhi. Many people took Amrit just by listening to them. There was a saying within the Gursikhs of the time: Aurangzeb wouldn't have made the same number of Muslims with his sword as Sant ji made Gursikhs with his preaching and by their exemplary lifestyle. With great love and respect, Sant ji was known as Dilbar (the knower of your heart) by the Gursikh sangat.

Sant Giani Bhagvaan Singh ji

Sant Giani Bhagvan Singh ji learnt Gurbani and studied religion from Sant Daya Singh ji. Sant ji gave Sant Giani Bhagvan Singh ji the Dastar (turban, meaning leadership) of Damdami Taksal. They would reside in the Majeethiaa Bunga (one of the two towers at Sri Harmandir Sahib). Throughout their life they did an immense amount of Gursikhi parchar.

Sant Giani Bhagvan Singh ji would spend most of their time reciting Gurbani. They were not affected by maya (worldly illusion) and had a disciplined rehat. While staying at Amritsar they taught and groomed many kathakars and paathis. Three famous Gursikhs Sant Harnam Singh ji, Sant Fateh Singh ji and Sant Ameer Singh ji were students of Giani ji. Sant Ameer Singh ji later became jathedar of the Shaheed Bhai Mani Singh branch of Damdami Taksal. Sant Ameer Singh ji is famous for producing a full sateek of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.

Sant Giani Bhagvan Singh ji were a great poet and scholar, and spoke with much devotion. They believed that all our Guru's, including eternal Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, are the incarnations of Akal Purkh. Giani ji showed immense respect to the Bani of the Bhagats, and produced a sateek of their Bani. It was published in Lahore in 1897, with Bhai Gurmukh Singh Sidhana doing the seva for the printing.

Sant ji were asked by the sangat to produce this sateek, as they argued that the Bani has such a deep meaning and the sateek would assist the understanding of many. Giani ji said that this Bani is beyond human description, just as is for all Gurbani. At the start of the sateek they state the following: "I have little sense, with Guru ji's blessings, the understanding I have learnt, that is what I have written. Guru ji is with us and will ferry us across the ocean that is the world." Thus giving us evidence of their nimrata (humbleness), by producing this sateek Giani ji has done a great Seva for the Panth.

    • just got this from the Library ** THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER **A GUIDE TO USING THE SCIENCE OF THE BODY CLOCK TO CREATE THE OPTIMUM PERSONAL ROUTINE: SLEEP BETTER, WORK BETTER, FEEL BETTER.'A superlative guide to some of the most intriguing questions of human existence' - Bill Bryson, author of The Body: A Guide for Occupants'Who knew our body clocks determined so much of our health, happiness, and lifespan?I learned so much' - James Nestor, author of Breath  In the twenty-first century, we increasingly push our daily routines into the night, carrying out work, exercise and our social lives long after dark. But we have forgotten that our bodies are governed by a 24-hour biological clock which guides us towards the best time to sleep, eat and think. In Life Time, Professor Russell Foster shares his life's work, taking us on a fascinating and surprising journey through the science of our body clocks. Using his own studies, as well as insights from an international community of sleep scientists and biologists studying circadian rhythms, he illustrates the surprising effects the time of day can have on our health, including:- how a walk outside at dawn can ensure a better night's sleep- how eating after sundown can affect our weight- the extraordinary effects the time we take our medication can have on our risk of life-threatening conditions, such as strokesIn the modern world, we have neglected an essential part of our biology. But with knowledge of this astonishing science, we can get back into the rhythm, and live healthier, sharper lives. https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/321815/life-time-by-foster-russell/9780241529317   @dallysingh101I saw this also, think you would like it     @GurjantGnostic @jkvlondon @californiasardar1 @Ranjeet01 anyone been reading other books?  
    • "I'm a devout Sikh -- and married to a man." What an absurd statement. I'm glad that Jasvir Singh has a trimmed beard, as it helps make it obvious how inaccurate his claim of being a "devout Sikh" is for people who may not know that same sex marriage is not compatible with a gurmat lifestyle.     The funny thing is, just observing the organization from its online presence, I would have guessed that it was created primarily to help guys like Jasvir Singh and Param Singh (remember how he appeared on a dating game show?) meet women. How wrong I was.
