Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,
Someone once asked Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj (Rara Sahib Wale) the following: “How is it possible that one can be liberated?” Sant Ji Maharaj replied: “If one lives in accordance to Sikh Rehat Maryada, liberation is simple. One must be baptised into the Khalsa, awake at Amrit Vela and abstain from the cardinal sins. It is all explained by Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj and in our Rehat Maryada.”
The Sikh then replied: “We live in a modern era Baba Ji. Some are able to balance a Gursikh Jeevan with their daily responsibilities, however for others such as myself, we find it hard to maintain Rehat Maryada and practise Seva Simran alongside our working lives, what must we do?”
Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj replied: “If one is unable to do anything else, one should ensure they do not give up on keeping company with Sants. It is through keeping company with Mahapurkh that our positive thoughts are reinforced and we are inspired to live a Gursikhi-orientated lifestyle.”
Please forgive us for any mistakes.
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio
