It had just approached mid-day and the weather was extremely hot. Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj arose and told their devout Sikhs to start up the Jeep. The devotees questioned Sant Ji Maharaj as to where they wished to go. Despite the amount of expensive vehicles Sant Ji Maharaj owned, they persisted on going in the Jeep. As soon as the Jeep was started, Sant Ji Maharaj quickly sat in the Jeep without telling the Jathe De Singh (Personal Devotees who were assigned to remain with Sant Ji Maharaj) and ordered for the driver to go.

After passing towns and villages, Sant Ji Maharaj noticed a ‘Kacha Raa’ (Route with a poor pathway) and commanded for the Jeep to be taken that way. The driver noticing the road’s poor infrastructure questioned as to why he had been asked to drive that way. Sant Ji Maharaj replied “Do not waste time, do as I say.” Seated in the Jeep was Sant Ji Maharaj, the driver and 2 or 3 other devotees at the back.

The driver carried on driving and after travelling at a certain distance, noticed that there was a 15-foot snake situated in the middle of the road. Sant Ji Maharaj instantly asked for the Jeep to be stopped and then themselves stepped out. Sant Ji Maharaj walked up the Snake and placed their right foot on it’s head. Those seated in the Jeep claim that they had never seen such a  big Snake ever in their lives. As soon as Sant Ji Maharaj placed their foot on the Snake’s head, the soul of the Snake ascended towards the sky and looked as though it was a electric explosion! After witnessing what had happened, a devotee sitting at the back of the vehicle stepped out, picked up the Snake and placed it in the back of the car.

Upon arriving back at Rara Sahib, there was a lot of Sangat which had gathered. They began to ask Sant Ji Maharaj where they had gone, and that too in such an instance, that they left without telling anyone. The devotee seated at the back of the car, pulled out the Snake and showed it to the congregation. “This is where Sant Ji Maharaj went, to liberate this being!”

ਧੰਨੁ ਧੰਨੁ ਧੰਨੁ ਜਨੁ ਆਇਆ 

Blessed, blessed, blessed is the coming of that humble being;

ਜਿਸੁ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਸਭੁ ਜਗਤੁ ਤਰਾਇਆ 

by his grace, the whole world is saved.

Please forgive us for any mistakes.
