Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,
The following Saakhi is from a time where Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj (Rara Sahib Wale) were carrying out Kirtan’s in Sri Nagar (India). The family of Sardar Charanjit Singh (Delhi) experienced an upsetting incident in which their one son, became ill and passed away at the tender age of one. The wife of Sardar Charanjit Singh was a very faithful and spiritual individual, however despite this was unable to control her sorrow.
ਨਾਨਕ ਕਚੜਿਆ ਸਿਉ ਤੋੜਿ ਢੂਢਿ ਸਜਣ ਸੰਤ ਪਕਿਆ ॥
O Nanak, break away from the false, and seek out the Saints, your true friends.
ਓਇ ਜੀਵੰਦੇ ਵਿਛੁੜਹਿ ਓਇ ਮੁਇਆ ਨ ਜਾਹੀ ਛੋੜਿ ॥੧॥
The false shall leave you, even while you are still alive; but the Saints shall not forsake you, even when you are dead. ||1||
Despite Sant Ji Maharaj being in Sri Nagar, without telling any of their Jatha or associates, Sant Ji Maharaj booked a flight for Delhi and immediately flew out on their own. Sant Ji Maharaj entered Sardar Charanjit Singh’s house and approached his wife who was still unable to control her sorrow. She explained to Sant Ji Maharaj how her lone child had passed away.

Sant Ji Maharaj then reassured her: “Have patience, this son that has passed away, the same one will return back into your home, just have patience for one year – convince yourself that it is as if your son has gone on holiday and that he will return shortly.

Sardar Charanjit Singh’s wife replied: “I can accept that it is possible for me to have another child in a year, however how am I supposed to believe that this child will be the same one that has passed away?!”

Sant Ji Maharaj then asked her to explain a birth mark or distinguishing feature that the child had. She explained that when the child was born, he had a black mark on the back of neck.

Sant Ji Maharaj again assured her and said: “If this child to be has the same mark, will you believe that your son has returned?” She agreed and to her astonishment, the next year, the child that was born had the same mark at the same spot.

Faith is the mother of meditation” – A popular quotation that is used by many Sant Mahapurkh during discourses. Without faith one cannot meditate, for if he doesn’t believe from his heart what he is praying to – then his efforts are useless. As evident in this scenario, faith always prevails, it’s just a matter of maintaining it in all situations.

Please forgive us for any mistakes.
