'...he had continued reciting from in his sleep...'

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

The following is a short story translated from "Gurmukh Darshan"

Author : Giani Kirpal Singh Ji


This took place in 1927, when Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh jee Khalsa was 25years old.

"In those days there werern't many sevadaars that could recite GurbaNee in Sri Akhand Paath Sahib correctly; these sevaadaars were rare. Due to this reason, our village's Nihung Singh Bhai Taara Singh jee, Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Jee and myself would be asked to fulfill the seva of Sri Akhand Paath sahib. Also worth noting, Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh jee were always found to be in a tranquil and worriless state of mood. Furthermore, Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh jee would never accept any monetary donations for fulfilling his duties as an Akhand Paath sevadaar. One time in Doaba, there was a Sri Akhand Paath sahib that had already commenced, Baba jee had completed the duty of Sri Akhand Paath seva at 4am and went to a nearby room and started reciting his Nitnem dee banee, while reading he fell asleep. From a nearby room, we heard a voice reciting Gurbanee out loud, out of curiosity myself and other singh's went to the voice. We found it was Baba Jee reciting Gurbanee in his sleep. We went and sat around him and we had listened to him do paath for a half hour in which time we noticed that he had started reading Gurbanee from Sri Akhand Paath sahib. He had left his sevaa for Sri Akhand Paath Sahib at "sorath raag" that is exactly where he had continued reciting from in his sleep. The other sevaadaars that were sitting there listening to him noticed that he had not made a single error in his recitation, we were all left amazed." Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji and The Naamdhari's

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji and The Naamdhari's


One time, 108 Bhram Giani Mahpursh Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa and the entire Jatha where staying at Sachkhand Sri Hajoor Sahib. At the same time a large Naamdhari Jatha had reserved rooms at Gurdhwara Sahib not knowing that Mahpursh and Jatha where also staying there. The Naamdhari's where given stage time, and did katha and many members of the jatha where taken back by the preechar done. During Ardaas, premi's who where doing Joryaan di Sevaa, ran away as they did not want to hear the blamsemphous ardaas of the Naamdhari's, who did not beleive in Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji as the jag-di-jot of Sahib Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji. The premi's quickly ran over and sat with Mahpursh. No one dared to say a word to mahpursh Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji, out of fear, as any talk outside of gurbani was not tolerated, and Mahpursh where always in a state of doing, or listening to Gurbani and no one would dare interupt it. The Singhs all sat with mahpursh wondering what should be done, and how the Naamdhari's should be dealt with. Later in the evening diwan Sant Mahpursh Bhram Giani Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa, sat on stage and did Katha. Just by listening to the Katha the Naamdhari's realized who Mahpursh where (A true Sikh of Sahib Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji). The Katha hit deep down and the unfatmoable arth of Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji stung at the hearts of the Naamdhari's. Without wasting any time they all got there stuff together and ran away from Sri Hajoor Sahib Ji.

Morale: Many times we see parkhandhi babbay running prechaar against Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Quickly we are triggered to being angry and becoming hot headed. In this day and age espeically countless numbers of people are doing beadbi of Maharaaj and not conforming to parataan Rehat. By becoming angry and hot headed we are all causing fire, and likewise getting burned. Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is above all, they are untouchable and above all, it is no doubt our duty as the sons and daughters of Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji to have shardaa and respect towards Maharaaj, however acting out and acting rash is of no use to anyone. The real way to act, should be to simply get on stage and do prechaar and Gurbani itself will teach and sting at the hearts of those doing wrong doings. Full faith in Gurbani should always be held. As Gurbani itself is above all, who are we to protect it? We can only simply ask for Gurbani to protect us. Many times we feel we need to protect Gurbani from evil mahaants, but just as children who get angry at someone teasing our parents, we fail to realize that this calling of names etc, is only bringing the other person down and weighing down on there own karm. Sakhi typed as remembered, from the katha narration of Baba Charn Singh (Bhagat Ji).

Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa and jall paani

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh


Taksal had a very strict rule. Jatha would never go to anyone’s house uninvited. Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji was once invited by someone to have “jall paani”. So Sant Ji went with jatha of few gursikhs. The family was very religious so they did seva with pure heart. Sant Ji said the jatha will have smundar (milk) and then they will leave. So they put milk on the gas and after few minutes one girl put salt in the milk instead of sugar. No one knew about it. They served the milk to everyone. Sant Ji and all the singhs drank the milk, one singh did ardaas. No one complained, no singh was upset. The jatha left. After a couple of minutes, one of the family members tasted the milk and could not even get one sip down his throat. All the family members ran after Sant Ji, caught up and asked for forgiveness. Sant Ji asked “why are you asking for forgiveness?” The eldest man said, “Sant Ji, one girl mistakenly put the salt in the milk. Please forgive us.” Sant Ji said, “I did not taste any salt. The milk was very sweet.” The man said, “how can that be? There was too much salt in it.” Sant Ji replied, “Your seva made it sweet. Jatha came to your house because of your love not milk.” Then the jatha left.

ਮੇਰੇ ਰਾਮ ਹਰਿ ਜਨ ਕੈ ਹਉ ਬਲਿ ਜਾਈ ॥

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

When Sri Maan Sant Gyani Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji left for Sachkhand he was at Mehta. At the time Sant Ji left for his eternal home there were about a hundred Singhs with him. One of these Singhs was called Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji who had come from Orissa and who had joined Satguru Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj’s Taksal when he was very young.


Bhai Gurmukh Singh is the Singh standing on the Right next to Sant Ji

During Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji’s life, Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji was always with Sant Ji. Anywhere Sant Ji would go, Bhai Sahib would go there too. Bhai Gurmukh Singh would do a lot of Seva for Sant Ji and the rest of the Singhs in the jatha. He had dedicated his whole life to this seva.

Bad thoughts would not come to his mind and he was always reciting the name of Akaal Purakh. Bhai Sahib would hardly sleep and would get up very early to begin his very long nitnem, along with 3-4 hours of Naam Abhiyaas. Bhai Sahib would also do Jorria Di Seva every day, when no one would see him.

Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji had a very high avastha and it was for this reason he was able to spend the majority of his life in the company of puran Brahmgyanis like Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji, Sant Baba Kartar Singh Ji and Sant Baba Thakur Singh Ji.

Most of us can only hope for a glimpse of these beautiful souls, but just imagine the amount of naam abiyhaas Bhai Sahib had done not only in this life but those previous to this one too which let him spend nearly all his life with these jewels of the panth.


On 28th June 1961 at Mehta on Thursday at 2.10am Sant Gyani Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji’s breathing started slowing down and whilst doing Waheguru Simran, Sant Gyani Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale merged back into the light that they had come from.


Sant Ji’s body was kept inside and the rest of the Singhs were sleeping outside in the fields. Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji although upset that Sant Ji had left him, still accepted Akaal Purakh’s hukam.


That night Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji could not sleep. After Sant Ji left this world Bhai Sahib went and had ishanaan. Bhai Sahib then did his nitnem and naam abiyhaas and then began to do Jooria Di Seva. As Bhai Sahib was doing this, he got darshan of Sri Maan Sant Gyani Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Bhindranwale.

Bhai Sahib looked in awe of Sant Ji and he started to cry tears of happiness. Sant Ji told Bhai Sahib that he had dedicated his life to sikhi and seva and that Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj was very pleased with him. As a result of this Sant Ji asked Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji to return home to the beautiful feet of Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj with him.

At about 4.00am the rest of the Singhs from the jatha had woken up and had done their ishnaan and were doing their nitnem. Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji came and sat with the jatha of Singhs and he constantly had the name of Waheguru on his lips just like he had done for most of his life.


Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji’s body was then taken to Amritsar Sahib were water was taken from the sarovar. Sant Ji’s ishnaan was performed outside the Gurudwara complex. Before returning home Sant Ji had told Singhs that he wanted his body to be cremated at Patalpuri, Sri Kiratpur Sahib. As a result Sant Ji’s body was taken there.


Many Singhs from the Jatha did Kirtan that day. A pyre was then prepared from fresh wood. Sant Ji’s body was then placed on the pyre as Kirtan continued to be sung.

A Singh then began to recite Sri Japji Sahib Ji. Other Singh’s continued to set the pyre while reciting Sri Japji Sahib Ji in their hearts. After 20 minutes the recitation of Sri Japji Sahib Ji was completed and Ardas was done by the Singhs. After this Ardas the pyre was then lit. Sri Sohila Sahib Ji was then recited by a Singh.

Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji was standing near to the pyre. When Sri Sohila Sahib Ji path was completed Bhai Sahib jumped into the pyre so that he could return home to the feet of Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj with Sant Ji. Some Singhs who were near Bhai Sahib tried to stop him by holding him back. But how could anyone stop Bhai Sahib from going home?

If we touch something hot we get hurt and we cry out in pain. But when Bhai Sahib jumped into the pyre he did so with a smile on his face. There was no pain, no tears; no crying out, all Bhai Sahib was saying was waheguru, waheguru, waheguru, waheguru, waheguru this was also done with a smile on his face.


Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji’s soul returning to its eternal home.

The bachan of a Brahmgyani is exactly the same as a bachan from Akaal Purakh. Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji didn’t have to think twice about it, such was his love for Sant Ji.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh


Here is breif sketch of Bhai Gurmukh Singh's Life:

The Life of Gurmukh Singh Aurdeesa

Gurmukh Singh Aurdeesa, was by birth a Hindu and born into a poor Hindu family. Coming from a poor family he was made at an early age to leave home in search of work and moved around before settling down in Calcutta.

Due to good deeds in his past lives Gurmukh Singh would visit various Gurdwara Sahibs and with utmost devotion and love do Seva in the Langar of washing the dirty pots and pans. It was with such good Karm that Gurmukh Singh found Sangat of many famous sadhus’s and saints. It was this same good Karm that brought Gurmukh Singh into the sangat where he heard the glorious praises of Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji recited by such holy Sikh Saints as those of Sant Baba Ajaib Singh Ji, and learned of Gurmat and the Gurmat way from the spiritually uplifting dharna Kirtan and Katha of Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji (Rara Sahib).

The darshan and sangat of such great Sikh Mahpursh (Saints) led, Gurmukh Singh’s mind to be filled with Gurmat and Gursikhi thoughts. Even while being Hindu, Gurmukh Singh started to keep his Kes (hair) and started to lead a life in accordance with Gurmat.

Everyday after spending a laborious day at work in the factory Gurmukh Singh would come and devote whatever time he had, to the service of the Sangat at the Gurdwara Sahib. Only after spending countless hours lovingly washing and cleaning dirty dishes, in the service of the holy Sangat of the Guru would Gurmukh Singh feel content and at peace and feel all his desires fulfilled. Such satisfaction is told of in Sri Rahiraas Sahib (evening prayer),

Jin Har Sevaiya Tin Sukh Paiya ||

Those who serve You find peace.

Upon the request of Sangat, Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa and jatha visited Calcutta. On arrival Sri Akhand Paht Sahib paths where started at Gurdwara Sahib Jugat Sudaar. Kirtan and Katha darbaars where also organized and done on behalf of the Jatha.

During Katha, vadiyaartis (students) would sit and have Sri Pothi Sahibs open and follow along as Mahpursh did Katha. Listening to the Katha of Mahpursh and seeing the love and devotion all the students had for Gurbani, topped it off for Gurmukh Singh and his mind now wanted nothing more but to learn more about Gurbani and Gurmat and he craved for nothing more but to take Amrit and join the Khalsa fold.

When the seed of the karma of past actions sprouted, I met the Lord; He is both the Enjoyer and the Renunciate.

My darkness was dispelled when I met the Lord. O Nanak, after being asleep for countless incarnations, I have awakened.

(Raag Gauree, Ang 204)

Gurmukh Singh wanting to do darshan of Mahpursh (Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa) went up to Mahpursh when they where not holding a diwan and with folded hands went to bow his head at the feet of Mahpursh, when Mahpursh stopped him and said,

“Hey Premia (Lover of the Guru) !! You should only bow your head to Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Instead you should meet me with folded hands and say, VAHEGURU JE KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JE KE FATEH !”

Some nearby Singh’s who where friends of Gurmukh Singh and knew of his hearts desires then said out loud,

“Mahpurkho, this premi’s from a Hindu family, but today after hearing your Katha his heart has been set to join with you and the Jatha and learn more about Gurmat and be trained in reading of Gurbani. He does tremendous amounts of Seva and the sangat here loves him dearly.”

Sant Mahpursh then replied,

"First this premi should take Amrit and be on the path of the Guru. Then he must abide by the conditions set for all Singhs who wish to be part of the Jatha. If he is willing then he can come and be trained in Gurmat.”

Hearing this Gurmukh Singh was extremely pleased with being able to take Amrit and join the Guru’s Fauj (army), and have the privilege to learn Gurmat vidyia from the Jatha. In the following days an Amrit Sinchaar was organized and Gurmukh Singh took Amrit from the punj pyarai (five beloved) who then changed and kept his name as Gurmukh Singh.

That evening when Gurmukh Singh met with Mahpursh Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji, Mahpursh called for Giani Pritam Singh Ji and told them,

"This premi (Gurmukh Singh) was born into a Hindu family, but today he has taken Amrit from the Punj Pyarai who have bestowed upon him the name of Gurmukh Singh. He has a deep interest in learning Sikhiya from the Jatha. Let it be known that he is now with the Jatha. Not only is he a gurmukh but that is also his name.”

Baba Lohara Singh Ji was also sitting close by, and mahpursh called to them and instructed them as such,

“Lohara Singh Ji, this Singh has studied in a Hindu school and can read and understand Hindi. He can also read Gurmukhi. Sit with him and help him get started on his schooling in Gurbani."

Then on behalf of Baba Loharaa Singh Ji, Bhai Kartaar Singh Ji "premi" & Bhai Kishan Singh Ji, Gurmukh Singh learned the proper ucharan of Gurbani and in no time became an Akhand Pathi, and quickly memorized his Nitnem and other banian.

Although many students would further there gyian in such areas as Katha or Kirtan, Gurmukh Singh instead preferred to do Seva in the Langar where he would prepare the dough, start the fires, prepare roti, wash the dirty dishes, distribute the langar alongside any other duties that needed doing. However no matter what task Gurmukh Singh took on, he did it with full enthusiasm and with great amounts of devotion and love, while always remaining humble.

Whenever Mahpursh where physically ill or tired Gurmukh Singh would help take care of them. In the summer times, Gurmukh Singh would take on the Seva of fanning sangat and spent much time in the Seva of Mahpursh.

During Amrit Vela, Gurmukh Singh would recite Sri Sukhmani Sahib for the older Singhs, and for the Singhs who where preparing Langar. Regardless of whatever else was going on, Gurmukh Singh would always complete his Nitnem and never tire or get sloppy while doing Seva.

No matter what the situation Gurmukh would never act lazy and Mahpursh respected and held Gurmukh Singh in high esteem for the amount of Simran, & Seva that he did and with the love and respect he would show to all those around him while doing it.


Sacrificing and giving of all possessions

One time Gurmukh Singh gathered whatever money he had, his warm lohee (shawl), mattress, his books, and whatever possessions that belonged to him and took them to Mahpursh Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa and placed them on a table in front of Mahpursh. Totally lost in Anand, colored in Naam with no attachment for anything of his own Gurmukh Singh was about to say,

“Maharaaj, please accept my offerings!”

However knowing all, Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji got up and before Gurmukh Singh could say a word, started an Ardaas on behalf of Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji and directed the question Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji was going to ask into the lap to Guru Sahib saying,

“Dear Trurthful Lord, Bhai Gurmukh Singh Aurdeesa sacrifices all his belongings and entirety to your Sangat. In return please bless Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji with the love of your name and have him forever imbued in this love of your name across all planes.”

The Ardaas was said in such a way, that hearing such an Ardaas would bring a tear to ones eyes, and an amazing rejuvenating feeling would have overcome them. Gurmukh Singh’s spirit was greatly uplifted. A Singh also witnessing this later, asked Mahpursh,

“Hey maharajah, if he gave up all these normal usual items that you yourself gave him, how is that giving everything (sarbans)?

Absorbed in Naam, Sant replied,

“Singho! Understand this. Gurmukh Singh sacrificed all that he had from head to toe, and sacrificed all that he felt belonged to him. Whatever he thought was his, he gave it all to Guru Sahib Ji, and this is called Sarbans Daan, sacrificing everything. It doesn’t matter if you have a little or a lot. Whatever you think is yours if you give it all up then that alone is sarbans daan. But not anyone can just do this.

Through countless hours of seva serving in serving Sangat, Guru Sahib blessed Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji with such kirpa to do such a thing (give up everything he had).

May I Forever be with Sant Ji


One day upon being pleased by Gurmukh Singh’s Seva-Simran Jeevan, Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji approached Gurmukh Singh Ji and said,

“Come, Bhai Aurdeesa Ji! Ask for what your heart desires. I am very pleased and delighted with your service here.”

Gurmukh Singh Ji with folded hands then requested,

“Maharaaj! I have no other desires except for my one desire that I pass from this life with you and not have to spend this life without you” and then repeated the following lines of Gurbani,

O Saint, You are attuned to the Lord. Please stand by me, Architect of Destiny; please take me to my destination, Great Giver.

Sant joyfully replied,

“By the grace of the Great Guru, and with the Guru’s supreme and divine blessings, then you too can pass with me”

At that time the other Singh’s who were present, did not understand the deeper meanings as to what Mahpursh and Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji’s conversation was all about All they understood about the conversation was that, Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji, was asking, Mahpursh that since they brought him into the Jatha, to allow him to remain with the Jatha until his end. The reality of what Gurmukh Singh Ji and Mahpursh talked about and the deeper meanings of saying until the end came to light, at Kiratpur Sahib Patalpuri, when Gurmukh Singh jumped into the angeeta sahib and clutched Mahpursh and held onto them close, being burned alive and cremated alongside them,


Those who witnessed Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji Aurdeesa jump into the flames that day where all shocked and left speechless. From Singh’s of the jatha, Panthic leaders, politicians, people of great honor and reputation , police and those in civil service where all unable to hide there shock at what they had seen when they witnessed Gurmukh Singh Ji, jumped into the flames with Mahapursh Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji. The only thought that repeated in the minds of all sangat present was,

“Blessed is the Guru, Blessed is the Guru’s Sikh, Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale, and blessed is Bhai Gurmukh Singh Ji Aurdeesa.”

Tayraa kee-aa meethaa laagai

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh


One time Sant Gyani Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale along with Singhs from the Jatha went to Sri Darbar Sahib. After having the Darshan of Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj, Sant Ji and the rest of the Singhs were walking on parkarma around Sachkhand Sri Darbar Sahib Ji. As the Singhs approached Sri Akaal Takht Sahib Ji tears began to roll down Sant Ji’s cheeks. Sant Ji stopped walking and used his hands to wipe his eyes. He then looked at the floor and stared at it for some time. Sant Ji then looked directly at Sri Akaal Takht Sahib Ji and said,

"Tayraa kee-aa meethaa laagai. Har naam padaarath naanak maangai."

Your Will is sweet to Me. Nanak begs for the treasure of the Naam, the Name of the Lord.

Singhs who were with Sant Ji at the time looked at one another and wondered what Sant Ji was looking at, why he had shed so many tears and why he had uttered the beautiful words of Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji Maharaj. They asked Sant Ji what had happened. All Sant Ji told them was

"Tayraa kee-aa meethaa laagai. Har naam padaarath naanak maangai."


A Sikh lady was witness to these events. It was only after June 1984 that she realised that Sant Gyani Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale had seen Guru Sahib on fire. He had seen all the bullets which hit Sach Khand Sri Darbar Sahib. He had seen Sri Akaal Takht Sahib in a pile of rubble. He had seen the blood of the sangat. He had seen the beautiful blue sarovar turn red. He had seen the tanks, the helicopters, the soldiers, and the beadbi. But he had also seen Guru Sahib and Guru Ji’s Ladlee Fauj.


Sant Ji cried for a while but then accepted this was the will of that most beautiful Guru of ours, Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj, the king of kings and the saint of saints, who took all that beadbi on himself just for us.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Sant Gyani Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale had also asked Sant Baba Thakur Singh Ji Khalsa, who had spent 22 years with Sant Ji to return home with him. But Baba Ji humbly told Sant Ji that he wanted to stay a bit longer so that he could serve Guru Sahib’s Khalsa. Sant Ji smiled at Baba Ji and told him that he could return home whenever he pleased. It was through the bachan of Sant Ji that Baba Ji managed to overcome countless life threatening situations. Death simply could not touch this beloved Gursikh of Guru Sahib. After spending 89 years in this temporary world Baba Ji eventually chose to go back to his home at the feet of Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj on the 24th of December 2004.

Baba Jee would always stand up for justice Once we were at a singhs house in the midlands and the singhs were watching the news and so was baba jee (alpha panjabi i think), it was at the time of the SGPC elections and Bibi Jageer Kaur had just won and they were advertising it on the news, baba jee looked up made a comment and said ring india. The singhs were like who should we ring, at the time baba jee said the Jathedaar Of Akaal Thakht Sahib. The singhs phoned, Singh Sahib Joginder Singh Vadanti and said baba thakur singh wants to speak with you. Then baba jee spoke and said '' Singh Sahib jee, in the rehat maryada it states ''not to associate with those who kill there daughters'' and then said ''and you are making them the pardaan of the SGPC'' dont you know the maryada. Straight away the singhs at the house were like omg what can he say back now, Singh Sahib replied ''Baba jee its a lie, we havent made her nothing, its rumours''. Baba jee said '' I: have just seen it on the news, why are you lying for'' The next thing that happened was the phone got cut. Baba jee always stood up for what was right, no matter who the other person was. Dhan Dhan Baba Thakur Singh Jee

Sant Baba Jawala Singh Ji and Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

K Kaur sent me this sakhi today:

Once Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Bhindranwale went to Harkhowal to see Sant Baba Jawala Singh Ji.


They were going Vichar when suddenly tears began to flow from Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji’S eyes. Sant Jawala Singh Ji saw this and asked "Sant Ji Tusi Udaas Kathaie Ho? (Why are you sad Sant Ji?) Sant Jawala Singh Ji then said we were together in our past life, we are together in this life and we will be together in our next life. I will do Langar di seva and you will spread the Vidiya.


The reason why tears began to flow from Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji's eyes was because Sant Baba Jawala Singh Ji was about to go back home to Sachkhand. Sant Baba Jawala Singh Ji knew why Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji was shedding tears so in Bairaag bachan by Sant Baba Jawala Singh Ji was given to Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji.

The palm reading Pandit and Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

One time a pandit came to see Sri Maan Sant Gyani Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale. The pandit came in front of Sant Ji and said that he had attained such an avastha that just by looking at someone’s hands he could tell what Akaal Purakh had written in their future and what their destiny was.


Sant Ji lifted his hands up and asked the pandit to tell him about his future. The pandit looked at Sant Ji’s hands for a few minutes and then began to tell Sant Ji and the rest of the sangat who had gather there about some of the events which could occur in the future regarding Sant Ji life. The pandit then looked at Sant Ji’s hands again to tell him more. As the pandit did this he noticed that the lines he had read a few minutes ago had changed and now revealed a completely different destiny for Sant Ji.


The pandit looked shocked and stood speechless as the lines continued to change over and over again, each time revealing different destinies. Sant Ji then looked at the pandit and told him that, ‘Sikhs of Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj don't need this vidiya because everything lies not in these worldly hands, but in the hands of Dhan Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj.’ Who are we to second guess the King of Kings and the Saint of Saints? The will of God will never take you, Where the grace of God cannot keep you. Where the arms of God cannot support you, Where the riches of God cannot supply your needs, Where the power of God cannot endow you. The will of God will never take you, Where the spirit of God cannot work through you, Where the wisdom of God cannot teach you, Where the army of God cannot protect you, Where the hands of God cannot mold you. The will of God will never take you, Where the love of God cannot enfold you, Where the mercies of God cannot sustain you, Where the peace of God cannot calm your fears, Where the authority of God cannot overrule you. The will of God will never take you, Where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears, Where the Word of God cannot feed you, Where the miracles of God cannot be done for you, Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

When Sant Kirpal Singh Ji met Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

One time according to the will of Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj Sant Gyani Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale fell seriously ill and was brought to the Guru Tegh Bahadhur Ji hospital in Amritsar.


As this was happening Sant Gyani Baba Kirpal Singh Ji who was sitting in mediation had a vision of what was happening. After this vision passed Sant Ji immediately got up and told the Singhs with him to prepare langar for Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji and for the other Singhs who had accompanied him to Amritsar. The Singhs quickly began to prepare the langar and after an ardas was made to Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj Sant Kirpal Singh Ji and the Singhs with him set of to Guru Tegh Bahadhur Ji hospital. Upon reaching the hospital Sant Kirpal Singh Ji was taken to the room in which Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji was admitted. When Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji saw Sant Kirpal Singh Ji enter the room he immediately got up from his bed and moved towards the door to greet his beloved brother who he had never seen. Both Gurmukhs said their fateh and embraced one another. Sant Kirpal Singh Ji then tried to sit on the floor but was stopped by Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji who quickly grabbed Sant Ji’s hands and said, ‘In you I see the light which was with Sant Amir Singh Ji and Sant Sunder Singh Ji. You are a true Brahmgyani who has already merged with Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj. Your place is not on the floor but on my head.’


Tears began to fall from Sant Kirpal Singh Ji’s eyes as Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji led him towards his bed and made him sit there. Sant Kirpal Singh Ji and the Singhs with him stayed with Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji during his time in the hospital where both Gurmukhs would do vichaar on Gurbani.


What an amazing sight that must have been as the two jathedhars of Guru Ji’s Taksal explained the meanings of Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj which Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj had blessed Bhai Mani Singh Ji and Baba Deep Singh Ji with at Sachkhand Sri Damdama Sahib Ji. When Sant Ji was discharged from hospital the jatha and him went and stayed with Sant Kirpal Singh Ji many times.


Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

The King and his garden

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

There was once a king who was very religious. After his death he wanted to appoint someone who would be very responsible, smart, kind and religious so he created a garden. This garden was so beautiful with all the flowers that a person would just keep looking and never move the whole day. After flowers and trees, came tasty foods, so tasty that person’s stomach would get full but his mind would want more and more. Then, the king had beautiful women dancing who were so beautiful that even holy saints would lose their character. After this he built a palace with gold, silver, diamonds and everything. This palace was so huge that a person would get lost in it. Beautiful paintings were placed on the walls and carpets on the floor, things which a person would never have seen in his life. After building all this, the King made an announcement that anyone who finds him in the garden would be the next king. Many smart people and holy sadhus came to find the king. In the morning, everyone entered the garden. Some people just stopped looking at the flowers, some were stopped by tasty food, some by beautiful women. A few holy sadhus made it to the palace. There they searched and searched but failed they found nothing. One sadhu who was smarter than others came outside the palace and thought for a minute. He remembered that the king said he would be anywhere in the garden. So he started looking around. He found a big heap full of dirt, and garbage. He then went there and demolished it. Underneath this sadhu found a door which he opened. When he did this he saw some stairs which he began to walk downwards on. At the bottom of the stairs he found the king meditating. Seeing the sadhu the king became very happy. The King got up and gave everything to the sadhu just as he had promised. Now, how is this related to Sikhi? Well, this world is full of idiots, smart and holy people. All get on the path to find the king (Waheguru). Some stop just by entering which means waste their lives by believing that this body is everything and after this there is nothing. Some say “Eh Jagg Mitta Agla Kis Dittha” and fail. Some see some “mandals” or worlds in the body waste their time by enjoying it. Some try little harder and get some ridhi sidhi and busy themselves in these fake powers so this ridhi sidhi becomes those dancing women. Some try harder and get to the palace covered with diamonds and gold. This is the “dasam duar”. Many stop here and think “this is it”. They get busy with “anhad shabad” and sounds and stop looking for the “King”. Some Guru De Pyare are not satisfied with all this. They keep looking. They know from Gurbani that the “King” has to be here somewhere. They look around and find a big heap of “haumai”. They demolish it and Waheguru the king appears meditating. Both meet and become one. Those Gursikhs become one with Waheguru or become the King. “Sooraj Kiran Milay Jal Ka Jal Hooaa Raam” “Joti Jot Ralee Sampuran Theea Raam” Bolo Waheguru.

Bhai Jeeta Singh and Raag

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Bhai Jeeta Singh and Raag

Bhai Jeeta Singh used to be a Raagi that would accompany Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji. One time in Lahore, there was a Muslim Smagam for Raags. He, being a Raagi himself, was really curious what the muslim Raag smagam would be like. After, listening to some of the program he went up to the organizers and asked for their permission to get some time to do keertan because he knew shabads in Raag.

The muslims started laughing at him saying “you Sikhs haven’t been blessed with Raag, go get out of here and go do what you typically do…and…listen, we, muslims, are only blessed with Raag.”

Bhai Jeeta Singh got so hurt, he went all depressed to Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh and said, “Ji, today I got really embarassed.”

Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh said to him, “I want you for 40 days to stay in this room, food and clothes will be provided inside, for 40 days don’t leave this room and do 125,000 paats of Raag-Mala. Only after completing, this are you to come out”

Bhai Jeeta Singh did so as Baba Ji said, and then when the time came for another smagam, he went again. And again He asked them for time, surprisingly the parbandak decided to give him 2 minutes of their smagam time. He got on stage and after touching some keys in Basant Raag, the Harmonium started to play by itself and continued playing for the rest of the shabad!

He was given only 2 minutes, however the Raag took 4 hours to complete (b/c of the raas of the keertan no one wanted him to stop him and listened in complete amazement and silence).

The Muslims started saluting Bhai Jeeta Singh out loud at the smagam, and some came to him and said, that “God has blessed you people with Raag”.

Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Singh said “You were victorious today on behalf the Sikh Panth, ask for anything you want.” He said, “I do have one thing I really want, when my end comes, I want it to come while I am doing keertan.”

Baba Ji said “then that’s how it will be” The day Bhai Jeeta Singh left his body, he was sitting doing keertan in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji’s Hazoori. He was doing it so much love, he would lift his arm up affectionately, and while looking towards GuruJi he would recite “jio bhaavai thio raakh lai” and at that moment Bhai Jeeta Singh left his body.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh





On 19th February 1960, Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale met Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir Singh in Ludhiana at Bhai Sahib’s residence. They did vichaar on Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji’s Manglan.

Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh was ill at the time. Sant Giani Kartar Singh Ji Khalsa was also present and other members of the jatha.

They started vichaar on Gurbani. Sant Ji said to Bhai Sahib that the anand Bhai Sahib get’s from doing simran, and the avasta they’ve got, that they have ras. After hearing those words of Sant Ji, Bhai Sahib got very emotional. Bhai Sahib then replied by saying that Sant Ji was saying all those things to him in nimrata, and that the truth was that Sant Ji is the Jathedar (Mukhi) of Kalgidhar Paatshah’s Taksal and that they have Brahm Vidiya and that they are a Mahapurakh. Bhai Sahib then told Sant Ji that they have read their antreev meanings of Raag Mala, the ones that you can’t find anywhere in any teeka’s. Then Bhai Sahib did vichaar and agreed that Raag Mala is Gurbani and said that “Bani Agam Hai, Sikh Bhulanhar, Teh Guru Bakhshanhar Hai.” Also Bhai Sahib said that Sant Ji had Apaar Kirpa.

This was the last time Sant Ji and Bhai Sahib met. After the vichaar ended, Sant Ji and the jatha had something to eat and drink and then Sant Ji and Bhai Sahib said fateh to one another and then Sant Ji left.

After that, the next day, Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale went to Rara Sahib to attend a meeting which included other Mahapurakh’s, Sant Isher Singh Ji Rara Sahib Wale, Sant Giani Kirpal Singh Ji Sato Gali Wale, Giani Niranjan Singh Patiala Wale, and Giani Arjun Singh Ji Muni. After this meeting another two-four other meetings happened. These Mahapurakh’s then had meetings with the main Shromani committee members and other vidvaan’s and made the final decision regarding the Manglan.

The above sakhi can be found in the book Pavitar Jeevan and are eye witness accounts of abhiyaasi Gursikhs that were present. Below is extract from the book in panjabi




The above is in no way an attack at a respectable rehatvaan abhiyaasi gursikh bhai sahib bhai randheer singh jee, its just eye witness accounts of what happened when Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh jee with several other singhs went to meet bhai sahib jee.

Below is an extract from gurmukh darshan about about bhai sahib randheer singh jee, where sant jee calls them a sant

Raagmaala Steek Sant Gurbachan Singh Jee


This small book is about a small prayer known as the ‘Raagmala’. This can be found on the final two angs of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Over the past century this prayer has become the issue of a major dispute between fractions of the Sikh community. There are those who believe this to be a scripture written under the guidance of the Guru’s (spiritual masters) of the Sikhs and there are also those who believe this to be written by a Sufi saint.

I have written this book from my personal viewpoint on this issue. I accept every ang of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji as the authentic works under the guidance of the Guru’s. I regard not believing in the Raagmala as a work of the Guru as finding a fault in the spiritual master. It is like stating that Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji is the perfect and complete spiritual master however he had a crooked nose. I deem the individual who is a sceptic over the small composition of the Raagmala as an individual who finds fault within their spiritual master. One who does not have complete faith in the spiritual master cannot gain peace and become liberated. In this small book you will find the commentary of the ‘Sri Raagmala’ with both the basic and spiritual meanings. I hope this book will assist those who cast a doubt over this scripture and help them understand that this is the authentic work of the Guru and no other.

I should also make all of the readers aware that this book is merely a translation of a number of commentaries which I have edited. I do not have the level of spirituality to create such works. Before I start to write this book and before you begin to read it I would like to thank those knowledgeable individuals who have created works that assisted me in this translation. I would like to pay my respects and thanks to the following people, Sant Giani Sundar Singh Ji Bhindrawalae, Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Bhindrawalae, Sant Giani Amir Singh Ji Sato Gali Walae, Sant Giani Kirpal Singh Ji Sato Gali Walae, Sant Giani Pooran Singh Ji Delhi Walae, Giani Thakur Singh Ji Patiala Walae, Sant Giani Hari Singh Ji Randhawae Walae, Bhai Harjinder Singh Ji Damdami Taksal and Sant Jagjeet Singh Ji Harkhowalae. These are the individuals who have provided great works and sermons on this great scripture and its value towards the Sikh faith. Above all I would like to thank the Almighty Lord and the Guru’s of the Sikh faith who have blessed me with the opportunity to learn in accordance to their will.

I wish to pay my personal respects to Sant Giani Hari Singh Ji Randhawae Walae who have given me the support to complete this project in order for those who do not have a complete grasp of the written Gurmukhi language to understand the deep and moving composition of the Guru. A number of other individuals have assisted me in this task namely Sant Tirath Singh Nirmala who has blessed this book with a beautiful foreword. Sant Sher Singh Ji Nirmala has providing some constructive feedback prior to the release of the book and Bhai Daljeet Singh Ji Nirmala has also supported this task from the start to completion. Last but not least I wish to thank DTF books for their assistance in publishing this small book so the general public who have an interest in this field of Gurbani can gain the foundation of faith for the Sri Raagmala as I did through the numerous books I researched and read. If any faults are found within this book then please accept my apologies as these are not the fault of these great beings that I have listed but of the translator. For this reason all of the faults found within this book lay with me.

Servant of the Guru

    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
    • There was a young Singh from abroad who went to Anandpur Sahib Hola and got into a fight with some Punjabis who were playing loud non-religious music. He had bana and a weapon or two. There were more of them than him.  He ended up losing his life. Don't be like that. Not worth it to fight manmukhs. @californiasardar1 ਮੂਰਖੈ ਨਾਲਿ ਨ ਲੁਝੀਐ ॥੧੯॥ Argue not with a fool. p473
