Guruji is the “light divine” that came on earth to bless and enlighten humanity. He was born on 7th July 1954, in Dugri village at Malerkotla, Punjab (India), and spent the early stages of his life there. He went to school and college and finally graduated with a Master’s degree each in economics and political science.
Guruji had a spark of spirituality in him right from childhood and it did not take long for the spark to get fully lit. Guruji sat at various places including Jalandhar, Chandigarh, Panchkula and New Delhi–and satsangs began happening. It was here that people came from everywhere to seek his blessings. The tea and langar prasad served at Guruji’s satsang had his special divine blessings. We have experienced his grace in various forms: incurable diseases were healed and many problems ranging from legal to financial to emotional were solved. Some members of the sangat also had divine darshans (visions) of deities.
Guruji’s doors were open to the high and low, poor and rich, and people of all religious affiliations. From the most ordinary of men to the most powerful of politicians, businessmen, bureaucrats, armed service personnel, doctors, and professionals, everyone came to seek his blessings. We are equally in need of him and Guruji blessed all alike. Those sitting close to him, touching his feet, benefited as much as those seeking his blessing in their prayers anywhere in the world. What mattered most was complete surrender and unconditional faith reposed in him. Guruji was a giver, he never expected or took anything from anyone. “Kalyan karta”, Guruji would say and “Blessings always” is what the devotee would get. Our Guruji once explained that his “Blessings always” were not for this life alone, but ended with nirvana.
On 31st May 2007, Guruji took Mahasamadhi. He left no successor, for the “light divine” there is none. His emphasis was that the devotee always gets connected “directly” with him through the medium of prayers and meditation. Guruji has a temple, popularly known as Bade Mandir located at Bhatti mines in South Delhi. Even though Guruji is no more in his mortal guise, his blessings are working the same wonders, with his grace falling equally on everyone.
