The life of Sant Teja Singh Ji
teja1a.gif
His holiness Sant Teja Singh Ji was born at Pohir, district Ludhiana, on 17 Jan. 1927 into the household of Sardar Ram Singh and Mata Sant Kaur. He completed his primary education from the village school. He learnt (to recite) the Gurbani and its recital (Kirtan) under the tutelage of Ghani Gyan Singh of Gurdwara Sahib, Mandi Ahmedgarh. After spending the early years of his youth in Calcutta, Syalkot and Mussouri, he returned to Pohir. As a child he used to accompany the village congregation to Rara Sahib. But in 1948 he finally resolved to settle at Rara Sahib under the aegis and patronage of Sant Isher Singh Ji and undertook the devout services of the sanctum sanatorium. Delighted with his services the patron saint made him in charge (Shrimaan) of the community kitchen (Guru Ka Langar). He dispensed this service regularly for six years. He also served in the farm of Gurdwara Sahib for a brief spell.

Sant Teja Singh Ji has been keenly devoted to the Gurbani. Besides the 'Banis' of 'Nitnem' and 'Panj Granthi' he has learnt most of 'Shri Dasam Granth Sahib' by heart.Sant Isher Singh Ji used to be charmed by his recital of Gurbani. It was Sant Teja Singh Ji's love for the Gurbani that brought him closer to Sant Isher Singh Ji. Besides reciting Gurbani to his patron and mentor, he prepared meals for him. He used to accompany his mentor and perform the 'ardas' at the termination of each congregation (The Diwan). After Sant Isher Singh Ji left for his heavenly abode, Sant Teja Singh Ji was entrusted upon the services of the 'Bhora Sahib', which he is performing hole heartedly to this day.

On 10th January 1990, all the religious organizations, the chiefs of different Sikh communities, the sangat of the surrounding areas and Gurdwara Karamsar Rara Sahib Trust bestowed all the responsibilities of care and service of the Gurdwara upon Sant Teja Singh Ji. Despite spending most of his time in the Bhora Sahib (the privy chamber of Sant Isher Singh Ji) the present Sant Ji is shouldering all the responsibilities of Gurdwara Sahib perfectly well with the co-operation of the 'Gurdwara Karamsar Rara Sahib Trust'.

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh

Today "Sikh Voice" is criticising the way sangat did satkar of Sant Baba Teja Singh ji , when will these guys shut up ? They object to chaur sahib being done and fans above Baba ji .

Honestly its like watching unpard people trying to teach others how to read ...kamai hundi tan phir samaj auni see ....

they haven't stopped there ...they even had the audacity to call Sant Teja Singh ji a pakhandi

When Guru Arjun Dev Ji, the 5th Guru was bringing Aad Granth (half of Guru Granth Sahib organized into a saroop) to Amritsar, Baba Buddha ji carried Aad Granth on his head while Guru Arjun Dev Ji did chaur seva (waving of peacock feathers). This shocked the sangat that was walking alongside Guru Sahib because chaur seva was something that was only done to the Guru or to Kings and yet here was the Guru doing chaur seva to what appeared to be a book! Then when they ended the daily events at Amritsar, the Sikhs asked Guru Arjun Dev Ji where they should put Aad Granth for the night. Guru Sahib responded, Aad Granth will rest on my bed, I will sleep on the floor beside it.

OUR GURUS SHOWED TIME AND TIME AGAIN THAT GURBANI IS THE HIGHEST.

Today we have largely forgotten this and disregard Guru Granth Sahib, we neglect our Guru by remaining ignorant of his teachings.

Brahm Giani are Nirankaar saroop. There is no problem in giving them satkar in this way

One small request please:

This thread was started to remember Sant Baba Teja Singh Ji Maharaj.

Any debate type questions, please start another thread.

Dhanvaad ji.

It is interesting to note that the Great Baba Budda ji was never titled Brahmgiani but these days in the 20th and 21st centuries we have broken records with the number of Brahmgianis and sants.

Why weren't there any Brahmgianis and Sants in the 17th, 18th, 19th centuries? Maybe because back then people believed in SGGS as their Brahmgiani and true sant?

SinghStation you have studied Sukhmani Sahib right? There is an entire pauri on Bharam Gianni s qualities

Sukhmani Sahib also states:

"Brahmgyani kee gat brahgyani jaane.."

I would like to share a small story with you:

Once (in 1906) Bhai Teja Singh Jee was going to the US and went to Baba Attar Singh jee for his blessings. Baba Attar Singh jee directed him to go to Bhai Sahib Bhai Randheer Singh jee. When Bhai Teja Singh jee reached Bhai Sahib, Bhai Sahib replied, "Who am I?" Bhai Teja Singh jee then told Bhai Sahib about the importance of his mission to US and Baba Attar Singh Jee's request. So, Bhai Sahib after some thought requested the Sangat to appoint 5 Singhs to do ardas for Bhai Teja Singh Jee.

Never would Real Gursikhs let anyone put them on any pedestal.

If you watch the above video...its totally opposite of the above story I shared..

The point was to illustrate that Real Gursikhs never accepted anyone putting them at an authority level and doing chavar over them can never ever be thought of even.

And I would like to point out that I requested ANY debate like comments to be started on another thread.

Thank you

I might be wrong and dont want to cause debate but I dont think that that Teja Singh (MA Harvard) is the same Teja Singh (Rara Sahib Wale)

    • meat only applies to certain jathabandi, budha dal, tarna dal, takhts patna sahib + hajoor sahib and EVEN sgpc Akal Takht rehit maryada  are excluded from these rules. IT's the akal takht maryada yo
    • Did you not catch the use of the word 'many'? That implies some people aren't thus inclined. Seriously, do I have to micro-explain simple things because you didn't read properly? That would get seriously tiring - fast.    lol   if you're talking about Confucius's quote, then I'm pretty sure he was suggesting that a corrupt state routinely involves the promotion of corrupt people who have no care for those who are struggling in the state system.  
    • Nothing wrong with having a strong and well-built physique. Not all of us have the physical build of money-lenders and merchants. You can't positively-discriminate certain physical characteristics out of a people who identify with a particular religion. If that's what a particular faction ACTUALLY desires, then come out and state it unequivocally, "We don't want this tribe in this religion."
    • Presumably this quote was written at a time where taxes weren't collected.  Today, we just need the wealthy to pay their fair share of taxes which should suffice to support those most in need. Note need, not greed.
