Sant Gurbachan Singh jee’s Abhyaas of Gurbani

Sant Gurbachan Singh jee’s Abhyaas of Gurbani

One time Sant Kartar singh ‘premi’ asked sant Gurbachan Singh ji that any line we give from Guru Granth sahib you can automatically tell us which’ Ang ‘ it is on, how did your abhyaas of Gurbani get to this extraordinary stage? Sant ji said that before coming to Sant Baba Sundar Singh Ji he had done over 500 Sehaj Paats. This is something we all need incorporate into our lives; doing sehaj paat of Sat guru Granth Sahib Daily. If we ask any random Sikh, even many amritdharis, we see that many people have not even done Darshan under the Ramala sahibs of Guru jee, Let alone doing Complete darshan of Guru jee ( Sehaj paat.)

Once, when Sant jee were abit younger, they went to Singhawale Pind to do akhand paat raul. After doing their raul, Sant jee went to his Aasan and layed down and went to sleep. From the exact Pangti, ang they left their raul at, they started doing paat from there from memory in their sleep.

One time Sant ji went to Pind Rode to do Sri Akhand paat Sahib. Baba Hazara Singh, the elder brother of Sant Ji was also with them. Sant Jee did raul from 2am to 4am and then went to go to rest. Sant Ji had left his raul at this Pangti:

'aapae aap varathadhaa piaaraa aapae aap apaahu'

My Beloved Lord Himself pervades and permeates all; He Himself is, all by Himself.

While sleeping he started Paat from this exact pangti where he had left off. They read many angs. Bhai hazara singh brought all the other paati singhs and they were all left shocked at how Sant ji’s abhiaas of Gurbani was so advanced. When Sant ji was around 7 Years of age they had become a very good paati. Nowadays many people undermine Paatis, but being a proper paati is quite an accomplishment. Only such person can be called an Akhand Paathi who can do at least 60 angs in 2 hours i.e. one ang in 2 minutes. There is no easy way to become a Paathi. To be a Paathi, either one has to have Kamaayee from previous Janams, or pure Kirpa of Guru Sahib or do it the regular way - Hard work.

Before coming to Sant Baba Sundar Singh Jee , Sant Gurbachan Singh Jee used to to 5 nitnems everyday. Sant Sundar Singh Jee told them to do 1 themselves and listen to another from any singh. When asked why they did so many nitnems, their reply was that any nitnem I missed from childhood or when i was ill etc i am doing them now.

Sant Ji's life was ; Gurbani :
mai gurabaanee aadhhaar hai gurabaanee laag rehaao 8
I have the Support of the Word of the Guru's Bani. Attached to Gurbani, I survive. 8

Bhull chuk muaaf,

Jivanpal Singh
