Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,

‘Chakari Wala Baba’ was a close associate of Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj (Rara Sahib Wale). He dedicated most of his lifetime into serving Sant Ji Maharaj through doing Kirtan Seva.

One day ‘Chakari Wale’ Baba Ji’s wife put forward a complaint: “Why is that you are always running around with these Sants? What benefits have these Sants ever provided for us? We were poor before we met the Sant and we are still poor. Have you not thought about how we are going to get our children married or how we are going to sustain a comfortable standard of living?”

‘Chakari Wale Baba Ji’ became very upset at hearing this. He acknowledged that he had to fulfil both responsibilities of both doing Seva with Sant Ji Maharaj and providing money for his family. After losing all hope, he decided to go meet with Sant Ji Maharaj.

Sant Ji Maharaj realised what was on his mind even before he said it and so on his arrival asked, Chakari Waleya, what is the matter?” Chakari Wale Baba Ji did not reply and instead kept their head low. Sant Ji Maharaj asked a second time, to which Chakari Wale Baba Ji began to cry. Sant Ji Maharaj reassured him to not cry and told him to open his Hazooriya (cloth worn around the neck).

Sant Ji Maharaj got two handfuls of stones and placed them in Chakari Wale Baba Ji’s Hazooriya, reassuring him that all his problems would be solved. Chakari Wale Baba Ji returned home to his wife. His wife asked him what he was carrying in his Hazooriya. Chakari Wale Baba Ji explained that Sant Ji Maharaj had given him the blessing of stones. Chakari Wale Baba Ji’s wife became enraged and said, “Is this all your able to provide for our family, a bunch of stones? All this Seva you do – it’s worthless.” 

His wife then opened his Hazooriya and to her astonishment instead of discovering stones, discovered golden jewels. The stones Sant Ji Maharaj had placed had now become gold, Sant Ji Maharaj had rewarded Chakari Wale Baba Ji for his Seva.

Please forgive us for any mistakes.
