This blog is a humble attempt at showcasing some events in the life of Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj (Rara Sahib Wale) and highlighting the worldwide seva done by Sant Baba Mann Singh Ji (Pehowa Wale) and Sant Baba Mohan Singh Ji (Pehowa Wale)
Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj and Sant Baba Kishan Singh Ji Maharaj were celebrating the Mela (festival) of 9 Maagh – Barsi Smagam of Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji (Reroo Sahib Wale).
Sant Baba Kishan Singh Ji Maharaj who were responsible for organising Langar for the 1000’s of Sangat that were attending noticed that there was a shortage of Ghee (clarified butter). Sant Baba Kishan Singh Ji came to Sant Ji Maharaj and told them that there was an extreme shortage of Ghee within the Langar. Sant Baba Kishan Singh Ji explained that they needed 80 buckets of Ghee in order to satisfy the needs of the Sangat. This would be an extremely difficult task, as the Ghee was needed immediately.
Sant Ji Maharaj pointed towards the river which flows near Rara Sahib and said: “Borrow as much Ghee you need from the river.”The nearby Sangat was a bit confused hearing this and began to cast doubt on how clarified butter could be retrieved from a river flowing of water. However, Sant Baba Kishan Singh Ji done as Sant Ji Maharaj had commanded and thus with the Kirpa of Guru Sahib, borrowed 80 buckets of Ghee from the flowing river.
6 months later, Sant Ji Maharaj reminded Sant Baba Kishan Singh Ji that they had borrowed the Ghee from the river. Sant Ji Maharaj reassured Sant Baba Kishan Singh Ji that something that has been borrowed, must be returned accordingly. And so, 80 buckets of Ghee was acquired and then spilled back into the flowing river:
The praanic wind, water and fire sing; the Righteous Judge of Dharma sings at Your Door.
This Saakhi was an example of the Shaktiya (spiritual powers) that Mahapursh use when fulfilling the Sangats needs. Sant Baba Mann Singh Ji (Pehowa Wale) often say – “Ridhiya Sidhya, people strive to acquire such spiritual powers, but these powers, these powers used to serve the lotus feet of Sant Ji Maharaj and make requests for when they could serve Sant Ji Maharaj.”
Speaking with Sant Ji Maharaj one individual told Sant Ji that if he had just 1 of these numerous Ridhiya Sidhya, he would change the face of the earth (speaking of his own ego). Sant Maharaj replied – “That is why you have not been able to acquire such spiritual powers.”And so, despite having numerous and perhaps even unlimited powers, Sant Mahapurkh such as Sant Ji Maharaj do not choose to use them for popularity. When they are inclined to use them, it is only for the benefit of the Sikh Sangat and the world that we live in today.
