Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,

Sri Maan Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj (Rara Sahib Wale) were present at Rara Sahib and were strolling around outside the Bhora Sahib (underground meditative chamber of Sant Ji Maharaj) reciting Gurbani with a Mala (rosary bead) made out of pure gold.

Nearby, a Jimeedar Jatt (farmer) was crying at the fact that he didn’t have enough money to pay off the rent of a piece of land he was working on. Sant Ji Maharaj went towards their Bhora Sahib and before entering, stopped. The sound of the farmer crying was heard by Sant Ji Maharaj. Sant Ji Maharaj then instructed nearby Sevadaars to find out who was crying and why.

The Sevadaars looked around and noticed the man crying and asked him what was wrong. The man came closer to Sant Ji Maharaj and began to weep, whilst bowing in reverence at their feet. Sant Ji Maharaj asked the man what was wrong, what was it that was troubling him. The farmer explained his situation and carried on crying. Sant Ji Maharaj looked at the pure gold rosary in their hand and immediately gave it to the farmer. Sant Ji Maharaj told the farmer to sell it and to live comfortably.

To conclude, there is a lot of jealous figures who point fingers at Sant Mahapurkh for owning expensive items. However, regardless of whether or not Sant Mahapurkh have these expensive items, they are in no way attached to them, if Sant Mahapurkh have expensive cars, it’s not in anyway for their own pleasure. Such things only assist Mahapurkh in their mission of Prachar. We as human beings experience ‘Moh’ (attachment), however Sant Mahapurkh are much further from this thinking. They are always focused on Waheguru and as illustrated in this Sakhi, are willingly prepared to give their possessions away in order to satisfy the needs of the troubled.

Please forgive us if we have made any mistakes.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio.
