Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,
The following Sakhi regarding Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj (Rara Sahib Wale) is similar to an event that took place in the Jeevan of Sant Baba Sundar Singh Ji Khalsa (Bhindran Wale) in which a Sikh was blessed with the blessed vision of Guru Sahib.
Kehar Singh from village Malhi-Pur was a regular devotee of Sant Ji Maharaj and received Darshan of Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj in the Kirtan Divaan of Sant Ji Maharaj. When Kehar Singh told of his experiences to others, Sangat dispelled him as being crazy as he had become so old.
On Poh Sudi, Sant Ji Maharaj carried out a Divaan in remembrance of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj, during the Kirtan Sant Ji Maharaj dedicated the full Kirtan to Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj and spoke about the sacrifices Guru Sahib had blessed the Sikh Panth with. During this Kirtan, Kehar Singh fell into a state of meditation known as ‘Smaadhi’. During the Smaadhi, Kehar Singh witnessed the form of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj, with their bright shining Kalgi and warrior posture. When Kehar Singh opened his eyes, the vision he had witnessed of Guru Sahib, he could see it in front of his very own eyes. Kehar Singh saw Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj standing right next to Sant Ji Maharaj whilst they were doing Kirtan and began to shout, “Maharaj is here, Maharaj is here!”
Present Sangat noticed the commotion and grabbed Kehar Singh in an attempt to make him sit down. Kehar Singh however carried on shouting. The Sangat scolded Kehar Singh for ruining the bliss that they had been experiencing and told him that he had lost his mind. Sant Ji Maharaj looked over at the Sangat, knowing exactly what had happened with Kehar Singh – “Do not say anything to him, take him away from the Divaan and give him a head massage to calm him down.” The Sangat followed Sant Ji Maharaj’s order and gave Kehar Singh a head massage.
Sant Ji Maharaj met individually with Kehar Singh the next day and taught him the following – “I know exactly what you witnessed, whether the Sangat acknowledge this or not it doesn’t matter, however, these kind of experiences are to be valued and not lost. If in our Jeevan we begin to experience such amazing events, we should try our best to keep them as discreet as possible…”
