Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,

The Land of ‘Alanmbe’ in India was cursed by ShivJi ‘Bhole Naath’. Shiv Ji gave bachan that all those who will die in the city of Halanmbe will go straight to hell and it was believed that all that die on the Land of ‘Benaras’ will go straight to heaven. Bhagat Kabeer Ji (who is considered the Shromani Bhagat) spent a large portion of their life in Benaras. When Bhagat Kabeer Ji’s final moments arrived, Bhagat Ji made a request to be transported to the city of Halanmbe so that they may leave their body there. Bhagat Kabeer Ji’s Sevadaars reminded Bhagat Kabeer Ji that the Bachan given by ShivJi clearly states that all those that die in the city of Halanmbe will go straight to hell. Bhagat Kabeer Ji reassured the Sevadaars that they were aware of this and that they wish to go to hell and not heaven!

Bhagat Kabeer Ji arrived at Halanmbe. Parmeshar Waheguru sent deities (Devteh) to bring Bhagat Kabeer Ji to Sachkhand. Bhagat Kabeer Ji ignored the deities and reminded them that ShivJi had given Bachan that all those that die in the city of Halanmbe will go to hell. Bhagat Kabeer Ji insisted on going to hell. The deities explained that they were sent by Parmeshar Waheguru to collect them. Bhagat Kabeer Ji told the deities to tell Parmeshar Waheguru that they do not wish to go to heaven and will follow through in accordance to ShivJi’s Bachan and go to hell. After failed persuasion, the deities arrived in Waheguru’s sanctuary and explained the stubbornness that Bhagat Kabeer Ji was displaying.

Parmeshar Waheguru said – “If Bhagat Kabeer Ji was to go to hell – hell would become heaven…”

ਬੈਕੁੰਠ ਨਗਰੁ ਜਹਾ ਸੰਤ ਵਾਸਾ 

The city of heaven is where the Saints dwell.
Parmeshar Waheguru sent their deities the second time to collect Bhagat Kabeer Ji. However Bhagat Kabeer Ji did not change their stance and refused going to heaven. The deities returned to Waheguru and explained the situation at hand. It is believed, Parmeshar Waheguru themselves came to collect Bhagat Kabeer Ji.
ਮੇਰੀ ਬਾਂਧੀ ਭਗਤੁ ਛਡਾਵੈ ਬਾਂਧੈ ਭਗਤੁ ਨ ਛੂਟੈ ਮੋਹਿ 

The devotee can release anyone from my bondage, but I cannot release anyone from his.
Bhagat Kabeer Ji refused going to Heaven yet again. Bhagat Kabeer Ji explained, if there is just injustice within your house, what will come of the rest of the world? Bhagat Kabeer Ji spoke – “How does this system work? All that die on the land of Halanmbe will go to hell regardless of their good or bad deeds and all those that die on the land of Benaras will go to heaven regardless of their good or bad deeds? This is injustice. I will only go to Sachkhand if this is fixed. All those who have committed good deeds and died on the land of Halanmbe should be sent to heaven and all those who have committed bad deeds on the land of Benaras should be dealt with accordingly! Then I will agree on going to Heaven with you…”
And so, Bhagat Kabeer Ji leaving their physical body on the land of Halanmbe was to benefit the people living there. Sant Ji Maharaj, Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji leaving their body on the land of England, was to benefit the people living there. Bachan Sant Baba Mann Singh Ji (Pehowa Wale).
Sant Ji Maharaj leaving their body in England has given an excuse for countless Mahapurkh associated with the Rara Sahib Samparda and other Sampardas to come to the UK to have Darshan of Sant Ji Maharaj’s Asthan and whilst being in the UK carry out Gurmat Prachar and Kirtan tours thus benefiting the Sangat.
Sant Ji Maharaj

Sant Ji Maharaj

Approaching the days of August 25th/26th 1975, Sant Ji Maharaj spoke openly about their coming death and significance of the body and what our aim of life is, although the congregation didn’t understand directly what Sant Ji Maharaj was trying to say, Sant Ji Maharaj’s jatha all knew that it was their time to depart.

Sant Ji Maharaj left for their heavenly abode in between the time of the 25th August and the amritvela of 26th of August. It’s believed when Sant Ji Maharaj left their body, they were sitting in a lotus position, with their legs crossed and their mind last focused on the Lord Waheguru. This is believed to have only be done by two individuals in history, one of them being Sant Ji Maharaj and the other Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji Maharaj, the sixth Guru of the Sikhs.

Sant Ji Maharaj left their body in Wolverhampton UK at the following Address and is available for darshan on weekends 9am-5pm and weekdays with appointment:
Sant Baba Isher Singh Darshan House
61 Crowther Rd,
United Kingdom, WV6 0HZ

Please forgive us for any mistakes.

  • I was very fortunate to have done sangat of Pujaiye Baba Jio over the years in Nairobi and London. I was living in Bilston near Wolverhampton when Baba Ji left for his heavenly abode and lots of family and friends came over for their Darshan.
