Are there any Mahapurakh in Sikh panth today?

Yes. I promise you there are!

But you have to understand what a mahapurakh is.

There are individuals who people refer to as ‘mahapurakh’. These individuals could be either: fake, actual mahapurakh (very rarely), or just someone with slightly higher spiritual stage than most people (mostly the case)

A true mahapurakh is a really big thing. It is someone with millions of lives of bhagati. Such people exist in our panth today, but they hide themselves. As in they could walk past you and you won’t look at them twice. If someone pointed and said “that’s a mahapurak” your reaction would be “really!?” you wouldn’t believe it.

They ‘hide’ themselves by living a normal family life (gristh jeevan) - they get married, have kids, work a job, laugh and enjoy life. But start a conversation with them about naam simran and the things they say will send a shiver down your spine. Things which are beyond this body.

They live in God’s hukam. A true mahapurakh will ‘recieve’ orders from God. It might be to do parchar of Sikhi, it might be a particular seva, but sometimes their order is just to keep their inner self completely hidden from the world.

 My mummyji has done sangat of Sant Baba Harnam Singh Rampur Khere wale in her childhood as she's from a nearby pind. I live in Delhi. I wanted to do darshan of a Mahapurakh thinking that it will definitely have a positive impact on my Sikhi but then I thought is it even possible today? Are there even any Mahapurakhs today? But now, reading the comments, I doubt meeting any because they're gupt. Still, if anybody can provide any pointers as to how I can meet any Mahapurakh, I'd be thankful.

Wjkk Wjkf!

I consider myself lucky of having baba Seva Singh ji of rapurkhera visiting my home and meeting him and doing sangat once a year he visits our area. Folks like these are rare and they are dharmic ppl that we should keep the sangat with them. It is very good for our soul to get energy by having sangat of such high avvastha jeevani folks. 

However, we need to have our own self discipline in doing our own journey of meditation (naam/simran) and daily bani prayers. Gurmukh or sants are there to support but 99% of the spirituality needs to be strictly done by us in my opinion.

A family member who does quite a lot of naam simran said the following to me once: if you do Sukhmani Sahib daily you don’t need to go in search of a mahapurakh. Whoever the true mahapurakh is will come and give you darshan at your own house.

Yes like previous bhai sahib’s reply, a mahapurakh can guide us but the effort you have to put in yourself.

Frankly everyone has their own notion of Mahapurakh. 

It's best to share your understanding of Gurbani as per whose a Mahapurakh then ask for pointers.

Anyways "If you don't see anyone with attributes of a Mahapurakh then one should aspire to be one !"

That is what I heard in Katha Veechaar long time back.

    • I have no knowledge of this but interwebs so far says... PARAS BHAG is an adaptation into Sadh Bhakha, in Gurmukhi script, of Abu Hamid Muhammad al Ghazzali`s Kimid iSa`ddat, an abridged edition in Urdu of his Ihyd ul Ulum, in Arabic. The work was first published in 1876. Several of the manuscript copies prior to that date are still in circulation. An edition in Devanagari script was brought out in 1929. The question as to who adapted the work into Bhakha and when has not been fully resolved. According to one tradition, the version in Gurmukhi characters was prepared towards the close of the seventeenth century at Anandpur by Sayyid Badr ud Din of Sadhaura at the instance of Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1708).   According to another, it was translated a little before the middle of the eighteenth century by a Sevapanthi sainteither Bhai Addan Shah or Bhai Garu. The book is held in great veneration by Sevapanthi Sikhs who recite it up to this day in their deras or monasteries. The work originally written in the eleventh century was meant for the edification of the Muslims laying down for them moral and social injunctions. These stipulations represent a mixture of Islamic, Sufi and Vedantic principles and thus have a wide appeal. The main stress is on loving devotion to God and on right conduct. D.S.  
    • dasvandh of our swaas is a very good idea ji have you seen one of bhai jagraj singh BoS's last videos on every nitnem bani having a friend to go along with it
    • I was wondering if it is okay for me to recite the full anand sahib within rehraas sahib?
    • 1Anonymous1 so bhai sahib, you agree with the nihang singh side of this? we are lucky enough to have some singhs in dals still alive from the 30s and 40s and 50s if not those times, so research and preservation of the dal's side of the history is atiant jaruri. I feel like this event is central to the broad traditionalist vs. reformist schism throughout history which has been as llight as mutual respect between Akali Phula Singh ji and Maharaja Ranjit Singh, and as raging as singh sabha movements of Amritsar and Lahore, to the eroded history between Baba Binod Singh/tat khalsa and Baba Banda Singh bahadur to date with missionaries and puratan dals/sampardayi with sgpc in the middle  this part of history is confusing, cuz it would villainize either the Babbar Akalis or the diminish the honour of Shrimoni Akali Panth Buddha Dal and I certainly do not want to open old wounds of bad blood   
    • Waheguru ji, this might be my first question on here, but I always feel weird skipping 85% of Anand Sahib during rehraas. Is it okay to include those 34 pauris when I do rehraas? (I have done this a few times before). I am aware that several sampardayi include more and more dasam bani, but chhota anand sahib is something every dal and sampardayi agrees on (as far as this agianee is aware of) so I am not sure whether it is okay for me to bring this up or do on a personal basis either.
