Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,

It has been 108 years since that great Rabbi-Rooh (Spirit of God) Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj Rara Sahib Wale appeared on this earth. The 5th of August marks the Prakash Divas of Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj. Some individuals argue that we should only use the term ‘Janam Divas’ (birth) for Sant Mahapurkh and not Prakash Divas. However Maharaj has said in Gurbani:

ਜਨਮ ਮਰਣ ਦੁਹਹੂ ਮਹਿ ਨਾਹੀ ਜਨ ਪਰਉਪਕਾਰੀ ਆਏ 

Those generous, humble beings are above both birth and death.
Bhai Preetam Singh and a few other close associates of Sant Ji Maharaj brought sweets and other gifts for Sant Ji Maharaj on this occasion. Despite being the all-knower, Sant Ji Maharaj asked what the reason was for bringing such gifts. The associates explained that it was Sant Ji Maharaj’s ‘Janam Divas’. Sant Ji Maharaj answered: “I do not have a birthday and I will not have a day of death.”

Sant Ji Maharaj

Even though Sant Ji Maharaj has left their physical human form, their legacy still remains and will continue to do so until the end of time. Sant Ji Maharaj were a Pooran Purkh Brahmgiani, whose praise can never be done by Kalyugi Jeev such as ourselves. Sant Ji Maharajs greatness continues to shine worldwide and even though it has been 38 years since they left their Sareer, their name is still intact. Sant Ji Maharaj gave Amrit to 1000’s, they joined 1000’s with Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj and according to Mahapurkh’s Bachan, they have given Brahmgiaan to 1000’s. Their style of Dharna Kirtan has been adopted by many and there are currently countless names which are running under their name:
ਨਾਮੁ ਰਹਿਓ ਸਾਧੂ ਰਹਿਓ ਰਹਿਓ ਗੁਰੁ ਗੋਬਿੰਦੁ 

The Naam remains; the Holy Saints remain; the Guru, the Lord of the Universe, remains.
Please forgive us for any mistakes.
