Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,

Sant Baba Mann Singh Ji (Pehowa Wale) were once seated alongside Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj (Rara Sahib Wale). Sant Ji Maharaj looked towards Baba Ji and revealed the following Bachan – “Mann Singh, I will consider my Bhagti (excessive meditation) complete when there are lines of people waiting to receive Langar…”

ਲੰਗਰੁ ਚਲੈ ਗੁਰ ਸਬਦਿ ਹਰਿ ਤੋਟਿ ਨ ਆਵੀ ਖਟੀਐ 

The Langar – the Kitchen of the Guru’s Shabad has been opened, and its supplies never run short.

ਖਰਚੇ ਦਿਤਿ ਖਸੰਮ ਦੀ ਆਪ ਖਹਦੀ ਖੈਰਿ ਦਬਟੀਐ 

Whatever His Master gave, He spent; He distributed it all to be eaten.

Sant Baba Mann Singh Ji explains this episode in the following way; for there to be a lot of Sangat sitting down and eating was not enough for Sant Ji Maharaj. Sant Ji Maharaj aspired to provide for as many as possible – no one should go hungry. The poor, the hungry, the needy, all should have such a system in place that they be able to eat as many meals as possible throughout the day and not ever worry about starving. This is evident in Rara Sahib’s Langar today where if not daily 100’s, if not 1000’s are able to eat without being discriminated on grounds of race, religion or caste.
Sant Baba Mann Singh Ji and Sant Baba Mohan Singh Ji are currently following these Bachans of Sant Ji Maharaj. Whenever there is a celebration, Sant Baba Mann Singh Ji and Sant Baba Mohan Singh Ji ensure that mass amounts of Langar is provided to the Sangat. Whenever there is a crisis, where even the government are unable to provide food and shelter, Sant Baba Mann Singh Ji and Sant Baba Mohan Singh Ji ensure that mass amounts of Langar is provided to the Sangat. It is all through the Kirpa of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj and Sant Ji Maharaj Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji, that these amazing Mahapursh were able to carry out such amazing Seva and will still carry on carrying out in the coming future.
Please forgive us for any mistakes.
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio.
