The Simple Life of Bhagatji (Punjab, Montreal and now)
More than three decades ago, Bhagat Ji started their project of Guru Granth Sahib Ji's meanings from Punjab with no money in hand. They started doing complete recitation of SGGS single handedly in 5 days at residences of families in India. Bhagat Ji did not keep any set price for this task which they did with passion and therefore was always rewarded and respected more. Over a period of few years, as more volunteers got together in India, they bought a bus and ferried pilgrims to various Gurudwaras in Punjab and took a minimum fare for the same. Bhagatji collected newspapers, discarded iron objects and just anything that would get money at a recycling depot. In this way, they to pooled money to publish their first book 'Gurparmesar Poojeeai.'
Destiny brought Bhagat Ji and Bhai Jawahar Singh Ji to Canada in 1997 and after preaching at Malton Gurudwara for a while they went to Lasalle Gurudwara in Quebec. Bhai Jawahar Singh Ji (in the pic) had met Bhagat Ji in 1994 and awed by their simplicity and divinity, always stayed with them since then. At Lasalle, they continued the seva in a secluded shed where the heating arrangement gave away one winter. Bhagatji and Bhai Jawahar Singh Ji did not ask the Sikh community to spend money to repair it but instead, wore winter jackets and pyjamas throughout the whole winter. For 2 years, they also collected empty glass bottles from garbage cans to collect money for publishing the second book. Such simplicity, passion and mindblowing humility won the hearts of many youth from Canada and Gursevak.com came into being in 2006.
