Being blessed by Amrit

Bhagat Ji came to Pind Madoke Gurdwara Sri Gursar, Patshahi 6. There, Sant Kartar Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindrawale, Sant Preetam Singh Ji Khalsa Likhari Ji, Sant Vaid Niranjan Singh Ji Khalsa, Sant Trilochan Singh Ji Jarnail Khalsa, Premi Kartar Singh Ji Langeana, and others blessed Bhagat Ji with Amrit as Panj Pyare. The Gursikhs changed Bhagat Ji’s name from Charan Singh to Jaswant Singh.

Joining the Jatha - 1961

Bhagat Ji left the village one day and went to Gurdwara Jandsar Sahib Patshahi 10 at Thuliwaal. Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji was staying there with the Jatha and completing 101 Akhand Path Sahibs. When Bhagat Ji reached there, Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji said with a lot of love, “ਆ ਗਿਆ ਲਾਲ - You have come”. Bhagat Ji was blessed with Amrit Ras (ambrosial nectar in their heart and mind) in 45 days.

Recording seva of Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindrawale Kathas

After joining the Jatha, they were blessed with the seva of recording the kathas. To accomplish this herculean task, Bhagat Ji had to travel with heavy audio recorders Grundig TK46 and TK40 that used electricity to operate. Since electricity connections to houses were not common in every village they travelled to, Bhagat Ji suffered electric shocks when trying to make a connection for the recorder.

After the recordings were complete, all the cassettes were given to Sant Kartar Singh Ji Khalsa as per Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji’s wish. Many recordings have been digitized and their audio can now be found in the Free Downloads section of our website. It is unknown where the rest of the katha and original cassettes are.

Mangal Shudhai

The Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandak Committee (SGPC) changed the opening clauses of 523 Shabds of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in mid 1950s. After a decade long protest by Gursikhs from Damdami Taksal, Rara Sahib, Khalsa Diwan Society etc, 5 Singhs from Damdami Taksal undertook the task of spotting and undoing the changes. 50 years down the road in 2005, Bhagat Ji compared more than 400,000 words of Gurbani across more than three different sources. This resulted in a ‘Shudh’ SGGS file which formed the base of recording the complete recitation of SGGS.

Sarbloh Jatha

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.

Gurparmesar Poojee

Bhagatji collected newspapers, discarded iron objects and just anything that would get money at a recycling depot. In this way, they pooled money to publish their first book ‘Gurparmesar Poojeeai.’

Coming to Canada - 1997

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 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.

Establishing - 2006

Bhagat Ji’s simplicity, passion and mind blowing humility won the hearts of many youth from Canada and came into being in 2006.
