Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,
Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj were seated on the Taabya of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. Sant Baba Mohan Singh Ji (Braare Wale) called out the sangat in question “Is there anyone amongst you who wished to have the blessed vision of Raja Janak Ji?”
The sangat in a state of confusion did not reply to Braare Wale Sant’s question. Sant Baba Mohan Singh Ji (Braare Wale) asked the question once again to which some members of the Sangat nodded their heads to.
Sant Braare Wale immediately turned towards Sant Ji Maharaj and said to the Sangat – “If anyone wishes to see Raja Janak Ji, do not look further, Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj is the very form of Raja Janak Ji, a Saintly King!”
ਭਗਤੁ ਵਡਾ ਰਾਜਾ ਜਨਕੁ ਹੈ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਵਿਚਿ ਉਦਾਸੀ।
King Janak was a great saint who amidst maya remained indifferent to it.
ਦੇਵ ਲੋਕ ਨੋ ਚਲਿਆ ਗਣ ਗੰਧਰਬ ਸਭਾ ਸੁਖਵਾਸੀ।
Along with gans and gandharvs (calestial musicians) he went to the abode of the gods.
Raja Janak Ji was a great King who was well known for maintaining spirituality within royalty and credited for this virtue in Bhai Gurdas Ji’s Vaaran (as above). This similar virtue was seen by many in Sant Ji Maharaj, who would wear the most expensive clothes and body spray and yet were a Pooran Mahapurkh who were absorbed in Waheguru.
Please forgive us for any mistakes.
