The greatest saint that dass has ever met, Baba ji is my father. His blessings mean more to me than I can say. The all too brief time that I spent with Baba ji was the happiest in my life. Despite meeting a number of sants, I have to this day not found one who compares to Baba ji in terms of daya, nimrata, and generousity. If I could have one wish it would be to have lived with him, and to have been able to spend all my time with him. His presence was beautiful beyond words and I miss him dearly.
Sangats Experiences with Sant Baba Thakur Singh Jee Khalsa
One day Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale got all the Singh’s together at the Dera and said to them that they needed a Singh for some seva. One Singh got up and said that they wanted to do the seva, Sant Ji said to the Singh that he wouldn’t be able to do the seva, so Sant Ji chose Baba Thakur Singh Ji to do the seva. When Baba Ji started doing Sant Ji’s seva, Sant Ji didn’t let Baba Ji go to sleep properly. Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh ji were in their Mauj that day and were testing Baba Thakur Singh ji’s devotion and patience.So Sant Ji used to send Baba Ji to go and rest,and a few minutes later Sant Ji used to send a Singh to go and wake Baba Ji up. Whenever Baba Ji used to come back to Sant Ji, Sant Ji used to say angrily to Baba Ji that “Have you come here to sleep? it’s better if you go back to your house.” But Baba Thakur Singh ji kept doing sewa with Love and patience, reading Baani and serving Vadde Mahapurakhs. After a year of seva, Sant Ji said to Baba Ji that they thought that Baba Ji would run away from this seva, but they didn’t. After this period Baba Ji got a lot of Bakshish from Sant Ji.
Sant Ji once said that people come to stay in the Jatha to become a Giani, Ragi etc. But theirs one Singh, one Gurmukh in the Jatha who hasn’t got any pavanah, any icchha for anything. The Singh’s asked Sant Ji to tell them who that Singh was, Sant Ji replied that the Singh is Bhai Thakur Singh IchoGill Wale, meaning Baba Thakur Singh Ji Khalsa.

Baba Ji had been very ill on their visit to England, infact just a couple of days after arriving in England Baba Ji got very ill and had to stay in hospital. It was around 2am in the hospital room and Bhai Gurraj Singh and Bhai Amolak Singh were with Baba Ji doing seva, Baba Ji had not talked to any one while they were in hospital all they did was listen to gurbani 24 hours a day 7 days a week. All of a sudden Baba Ji’s heart beat on the machine suddenly rised and went to the top then all of a sudden it went down fast, Bhai Gurraj Singh told Bhai Amolak Singh to go out of the room and get Baba Ji’s Nephew Bhai Jaswinder Singh Nihang who was outside in another room. While he went for Baba Ji’s nephew the doctors came rushing in and by that time Baba Ji’s nephew had arrived. In the room were the Three doctors, Bhai Gurraj Singh and Bhai Jaswinder Singh Nihang (Baba Ji’s nephew) and the doctors said to them that they were sorry that Baba Ji is not breathing or responding to anything anymore and that Baba Ji has passed away.As the two Singh’s looked at each other in shock, the doctors said that they will leave them alone for a few minutes, and as soon as the doctors went out, Bhai Jaswinder Singh held Baba Ji’s hand on one side and on the other side Bhai Gurraj Singh held Baba Ji’s hand and Bhai Jaswinder Singh started talking to Baba Ji saying “don’t go” “the singh’s need you” “what will we do without you”. All of a sudden Baba Ji got up and sat down on the hospital bed and started doing Vaahiguroo Jaap, Then Baba Ji looked forward and did Namashkaar and said Fateh 5 times, on the third time they said it Bhai Jaswinder Singh and Bhai Gurraj Singh started saying it aswell but they couldn’t see anything,as to whom Baba Ji was saying Fateh. Then Once Baba Ji said fateh 5 times, they put there left arm around Bhai Jaswinder Singh, and right arm around Bhai Gurraj Singh and tightly grabbed them and said “What ever was going to happen has happened, lets go home, im ok now, call for the car and lets get out of here”, Bhai Jaswinder Singh replieed “Baba Ji we will stay for a couple of days just to make sure”, Baba Ji replyed “No I’m ok, everything is fine” and then Baba Ji pulled out all the drips and wires from out of their body, stood up and said again “take me home, see im ok, call for the car and lets get out of here”
Shaheed Bhai Joginder Singh Harchowalwale was in pathankot jail,the C.R.P.F had arrested him and locked up there. In the room where he was locked up was a picture of Baba Deep Singh Ji Shaheed. One day he looked up at the picture and he remember Baba Ji and Mehta. While looking up at the picture he did a benti and said “Mahapurkho, Kirpa Karo”. He said that he will probably get shaheed one day, either today or another day, but he is requesting that he stays alive for another year because he wants to do the panth’s seva. After he did this benti all of a sudden Baba Ji’s roop appeared infront of him, Baba Ji was wearing white clothes with a nangi Sri Sahib held in their hand. Baba Ji said to Joginder Singh that his death is in Guru Sahib’s hands, that whatever Maharaj wants, that will happen. Baba Ji then said to him to get out of their, that the police can’t do anything to him. At this time the police where playing cards outside and there where big flood lights on outside. While Joginder Singh started walking out he got scared, thinking that if the police ask where he is going,he will just tell them that he is going to the toilet. But while he was walking out, the police didn’t see him and he walked straight past them. He then reached a big wall, he couldn’t jump over the wall because of his body was in such a terrible state after getting tortured by the police. All of a sudden heavy winds started, and he reached the other side of the wall, it was like someone had thrown him over the wall. At that point outside there were more police officers surrounding the area, but still no one could see him. 4km away from the jail was a pindh that he was familiar with, he went there and borrowed some money and went straight to Mehta. When he arrived at Mehta, Baba Ji was standing at the gates waiting for him. Baba Ji held his hand and took him to their room and asked how he was and then fed him. After Bhai Joginder Singh finished eating, he told Baba Ji what had happened. Baba Ji replied to him that it wasn’t them who helped him escape, that it was probably Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji, then Baba Ji said “Satguru Sahib Ji neh laaj rakhee”!
Bhai Ajaib Singh is now living in America. When he was at Mehta, he never used to go in the Darbar to listen to Katha. He used to walk around the Dera and recite Gurbani and listen to Katha at the same time from the speakers. One day Baba Ji saw him and asked him that why doesn’t he go in the Darbar to listen to Katha. Bhai Ajaib Singh told Baba Ji that the reason is that he enjoys walking around listening to Katha and reciting Gurbani at the same time, he said that he found it more peacefull. Baba Ji then asked him if he knew what Maharaj Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji says, Bhai Ajaib Singh went quiet. Baba Ji then said a Pangti to him, which was :
ਸੇਈ ਸੁੰਦਰ ਸੋਹਣੇ ॥
ਸਾਧਸੰਗਿ ਜਿਨ ਬੈਹਣੇ ॥
“They alone are beautiful and attractive , Who abide in the sadh sangat, the company of the Holy”
Baba Ji then said, who ever sits in Sangat are sohne, Baba Ji then told Bhai Ajaib Singh to start sitting in the Darbar to do Sangat.
Singh Sahib Baba Kulwant Singh Ji Hazur Sahib Wale one amritvela morning whilst doing seva in Sachkhand in the Takht Sahib, had Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj’s darshan and with Maharaj Sahib was Baba Thakur Singh Ji holding a garva. The next time they met Baba Ji and told them about this. Baba Ji said to them in nimritah that they are Singh Sahib, they are satkaar jog,they always do seva in a place at the Takht Sahib where no one else is allowed. Singh Sahib Ji replied by saying that Baba Ji you are more satkaar jog, that he had their darshan with Maharaj Sahib and Baba Ji is Maharaj Sahib Ji’s garvai,thus more satkaryog and poojnik.
A Singh asked, that if Baba Ji is a Brahm Giani, what is the need for him to go hospital? Baba Ji’s answer was “Satguru Sahib Ji Di Kirpa Naal, I never feel pain”

Baba Ji’s did amolak bachan, “We are eating Mahapurakh’s kamai,we got respect because of Mahapurakh Sant Giani Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale” “At Sri Darbar Sahib I was listening to kirtan,Sant Ji came and sat down and listened to kirtan. After the Asa Di Vaar finished, Sant Ji got up and left, I don’t forget that day, Bhai Baldev Singh was doing kirtan, I don’t forget that day”.
Bhai Sukhwinder Singh ‘Sangha’ never had in his mind that he wanted to get married, he always had in his mind that he will stay single and do Baba Ji’s seva until his last breath. Once Sangha Ji was preparing the food for Baba Ji and when he brought it to Baba Ji, Baba Ji said “Sangha, You’ve done a lot of seva for me from your heart, Tere Bache Jeen” After Baba Ji went to Sachkhand, Sangha Ji got married and he has a baby boy. The sikhya here is, Mahapurakh’s bachan will always come true no matter what.
Baba Ji arrived at Australia airport, Giani Gurdev Singh and other singhs were at the airport waiting to greet Baba Ji. Their was a singh who had never seen Baba Ji before and never even seen a photo of Baba Ji. In the singhs mind was that Baba Ji will be really tall and big like Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale, when Baba Ji came out, all the singhs greeted Baba Ji and that singh was surprised that, is that Baba Ji? he’s so small. As soon as Baba Ji got in his car to go to his house whenever he looked at Baba Ji he started seeing Baba Ji in a very big roop. Even his car when he was taking Baba Ji to his home was moving to a side because of the weight of Baba Ji and the size of what he was seeing. As soon as he got home he told a singh that he did shanka on Baba Ji and now when ever he looks at them, that he sees them in a very big roop. The singh took him to Baba Ji and the singh started asking for forgiveness from Baba Ji, Baba Ji gave him an apple and said “everything will be alright. It isn’t me who’s making you see things, its Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji that’s making you see things, Oh meri laaj rakhde neh”
Baba Ji phoned Giani Amolak Singh and said to them, “Everybody is saying on stage that Sant Ji’s in chardikala, there will be a time where no one will say this on stage”
Gurcharan Singh did benti to Baba Ji to come to his house, Baba Ji replied you have got a alcohol bottle in your house, get rid of it first, the singh replied that none of my family members drink, we don’t have alcohol, Baba Ji repied that there is a bottle in the house, look all over again, when the Singh searched his house he found it.

Bhai Gurraj Singh was at the time very ill and he had to go back to leeds to get medical attention. At this period Bhai Gurraj Singh was with Baba Ji and the Jatha in Southall. When he came to leeds he got more ill and he started urinating blood. When he went to hospital the doctors checked him out and then sent him home. On the way home he got worse and his brother said that he will take him back to hospital but Bhai Gurraj Singh replied that he doesn’t want to go back because he’s just been there and they didn’t do anything. Then they went to the Gurdwara Sahib, did Maharaj’s darshan and went home. Once arriving at their home, He got more ill and he found it difficut to move because he was feeling dizzy, at this time the thought came to his head that only if he just stayed with Baba Ji and forgot about hospital appointments that he might have been alright and he started thinkng about Baba Ji, then a few minutes later the telephone rang and it was Baba Ji themselves ringing to ask how Bhai Gurraj Singh was, and then they explained to Baba Ji that what had happened and Baba Ji said that they wanted to speak to him. When Baba Ji spoke to Bhai Gurraj Singh, they told him to rest and told him to do Waaheguru simran and think of Shaheed Bhai Mani Singh Ji and in the morning everything will be ok. After that Bhai Gurraj Singh got better and blood stopped coming, and the illness didn’t come back again.

Baba Ji went for a walk in leeds on Wigton Lane which is a busy road. Baba Ji started walking on the road and the singhs that were with Baba Ji explained to Baba Ji that please walk on the pavement because its not the law here in England to walk on a busy main road. Baba Ji then made the singhs walk infront of him in the middle of the road and said “Singh gulam neh, par asi gulami de vich nahi rehna”. All the cars stopped and waited for Baba Ji even police came and they didn’t do nothing, infact all the cars waited and a few people realised that Baba Ji was a religious person and they did namashkar to them.
Baba Ji was watching the Punjab news and the rashtrapati (President of India) was giving medals to Hindus, Baba Ji watched and said “Go on, give out medals, when you have a Jang with the muslims, don’t come to us Sikhs for help”.
At Bhai Sarbjit Singh’s house in USA, Harnam Singh Dhumma asked Baba Ji regarding if Sant Ji is alive or if they were Shaheed in the 84 attack. Baba Ji said “Jo tu samaj da Mahapurakhan nu, oh nahi hai, Im not lying, why would I, Sant Ji is alive, he’s got a duty from the 10th Guru Sahib, Sant Ji is a Brahm Giani,and he will fulfill his duty”.
On Baba Ji’s last visit in the U.K. they told quite a few families to save their money, because when Sant Ji comes, they will need seva. For example Baba told a family in Southall where Baba Ji used to stay, to save their money and to send it to Sant Ji when he returns, also Baba told a family in Walsall and Baba Ji also told three Singh’s in Leeds to save their money aswell. Also Baba Ji said to the three Singh’s that make sure they come to India before the Jang because the Government will shut down all access to India including flights etc and you won’t have a chance to come after so make sure you come to India before the Jang starts.
Baba Ji was staying at Bhai Manna Singh’s house in Tividale and they said that the Vaddeh Mahapursh Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale’s said that “Singhan da dharheyan (beards) di laaj rakhan geh Maharaj Sahib”

Bibi Narinder Kaur from Walsall went to spend some time at Sri Darbar Sahib, Amritsar. She did a lot of seva there. At one time while she was doing seva, a thought came into her mind, thinking that, she will just listen to the kirtan in the evenings at Sri Darbar Sahib and not the mornings. She didn’t tell anyone about this thought and straight away Baba Ji phoned her out of the blue and told her that make sure she listens to kirtan at Sri Darbar Sahib in the mornings and evenings.
There was a middle aged Singh living in the U.K., and once he came with his friends to do darshan of Baba Ji. This Singh was an Amritdhari Singh without a beard. His friend did benti to Baba Ji, saying that if they can do kirpa on him so his beard grows. Baba Ji told this singh to go to Sri Darbar Sahib in Amritsar and do seva there. Baba Ji told him to do jorean di seva and wipe the dust of the sangat’s feet and Maharaj Sahib will do kirpa on him and his beard will grow. This middle aged Singh now has a long beard.
There was a Singh, and he was leaving India to go abroad for a few months. When he arrived at the airport, the airport staff didn’t let him get on the plane with his kirpan on. He straight away telephoned Baba Ji and said “Kirpa Karo” and he explained to Baba Ji that the airport staff are not letting him take his kirpan on the plane, Baba Ji replied and told him not to worry, that it’s only for a little while, Sant Giani Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale will be coming soon to get Khalsa Raaj and then all the Singhs will be able to carry as many kirpans wherever they want. The Singh asked Baba Ji that how long until Sant Ji comes back, and Baba Ji replied that he will be back soon and that not to worry, that Maharaj Sahib will do kirpa.
Whenever Baba Ji met any Shaheed Singh’s family member, they always did their satkaar to the full. There was one time where Shaheed Bhai Sukhdev Singh Babbar’s wife met Baba Ji, and Baba Ji gave her and her family members a Siropa and did their satkaar. Bhai Sukhdev Singh Babbar’s singhanee also had conversation regarding Bhai Sukhdev Singh Babbar.

Across the room their was Sant Giani Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale’s photo and Baba Ji put one of his arms towards the photo and said that “Come on back now from wherever you are, I’m getting old now, come on back quickly.”
Baba Ji did a Sampat Paath at Mehta for Sant Ji to come back, after the Paath’s bhog Baba Ji said that, if Sant Ji comes back right now that their will be a nuksaan (loss) for the Singhs, the government will not let the Singhs live. Sant Ji will return when their will be a Jang. Baba Ji also said that Sant Ji has a duty from Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji to get Khalsa Raj and put a Kesri Nishan Sahib on Laal Kila (Red fort).
Bhai Janak Singh came to Southall to visit Baba Ji. Baba Ji did his satkaar and was very happy to see him. Baba Ji gave him loads of fruit to eat and had a long conversation with him. When Bhai Janak Singh was leaving, Baba Ji specially got up of their bed and grabbed Bhai Janak Singh’s hand and specially walked them to their car. Bhai Janak Singh requested to Baba Ji that the wheather’s cold, that to go back inside, but Baba Ji replied that it doesn’t matter about the wheather, that who knows when we will meet again. That was the final time that Bhai Janak Singh did darshan of Baba Ji. Bhai Janak Singh passed away later on that year at Sri Hemkunt Sahib.
Bhai Hari Singh from Leicester, he is a Singh who is heavy in weight. He came to do Baba Ji’s darshan and Baba Ji said to him that he is in need of a massage on his legs because of his weight. Bhai Hari Singh laughed and replied that he will get one done. Bhai Hari Singh sat down and left the conversation at that. A few minutes later Baba Ji got up and said that they will massage his legs for him, Baba Ji had so much compassion. Hari Singh replied that he didn’t want Baba Ji to do the massage, that they shouldn’t, Baba Ji then got Khazan Singh to do Hari Singh’s massage on his legs. Baba Ji always looked after Singh’s, always wanted the best for any Singh, and wanted Singh’s to be fit, healthy and stay in Chardi Kala.
