Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,
A woman who was around about 60 years of age came to Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj. She asked Sant Ji Maharaj to bless her with their grace. Sant Ji Maharaj told the 60 year old woman that she should wash and dry the used utensils of the SaadhSangat. Sant Ji Maharaj assured her that if she would do this successfully, her spiritual life would be beneficial. She folded her hands and said Sat Bachan (true is your command).
The 60 year old woman began living up the command of Sant Ji Maharaj and would arrive bare footed and thereafter spending the whole day serving the SaadhSangat. She would return home in the evening after dedicating her whole day to Seva. The 60 year old woman continued this daily Seva without failure for 20 years. The woman had now turned 80.
Having turned 80, it had become very hard for the woman to walk. One day, she was sitting amongst Sevadaars and began to share her inner thoughts with them. “What am I to do now? I am hardly able to walk anymore. Sant Ji had said that if I must do this Seva if I want my life to be spiritually successful. “
Nearby, Sant Ji Maharaj were seated on their chair. Sant Ji Maharaj arose and grabbed their walking stick. Sant Ji Maharaj approached the woman who was in the Langar Hall and put their walking stick on her head. The woman began to explain that she is no longer able to walk and that her knees were aching from constant Seva. Sant Ji Maharaj told the woman that through this constant Seva of the SaadhSangat she has acquired 20 years of intense meditation (Tapasia). Sant Ji Maharaj told her that her meditation is so much, that she could either ask for royalty in her next life or liberation from the cycle of rebirth (salvation – Mukhti).
The woman folded her hands and said she has no desire for Raaj (royalty) and asked to be liberated. Sant Ji Maharaj told the woman that from a week today, the woman will leave this earth and it happened as so.
