Waheguru Ji Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,
Village Rampur (Doraha, Ludhiana, Punjab) is the village Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji Maharaj (Reru Sahib Wale) established their Dera and carried out many years in Simran and Seva of the Sangat. The village is also renown for Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj’s brief visit there. It was here during the days Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj had just left the Machiwarra Jungle. Upon arriving at this village, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj rested under a tree and was served by a Jatt of the name Bhara Mangat.
An elderly woman who had a lot of faith in Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj (Rara Sahib Wale) was blessed with the gift of giving birth to a child after 20 years of trying. In return for Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj blessing the family with a child, the elderly woman promised to make it her monthly routine that on every Sangraand she would come to Rara Sahib and partake in Seva of the Sangat.
The woman and her husband lived up to this promise for a long time and without failure would attend Rara Sahib every Sangraand. However, after a long time, a situation occurred in which the family was unable to attend Rara Sahib for a Sangraand. The next Sangraand, the couple attended Rara Sahib and requested for time to meet with Sant Ji Maharaj. The woman explained the whole circumstance and asked for forgiveness from Sant Ji Maharaj for not living up the promise she and her husband had made.
Sant Ji Maharaj replied – “Your husband is a working man, he is busy in woodworks, therefore it is important for you to understand that it’s not necessary you always come and see me. Listen to what I tell you carefully, there is an Udhaasi Mahapurkh Dera in front of your house, do Seva there if you have to, there is no difference between there and here. You should take time out there whenever possible and do Langar Seva or clean the used utensils of the Sangat there. You are also native to Gurdwara Reru Sahib, you can go and do Seva there aswell. Do not think because you have been blessed by me that I am the most important thing in your life. Waking up at Amritvela, chanting the Naam and doing your Nitnem is more important than coming to see me…”
And so, Sant Ji Maharaj’s life long focus was to join as many people with Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj as possible – they did not want their own worship or following.
Please forgive us for any mistakes…
