Baba Nand Singh Ji was a tender child of about six years of age. One day he was asked to fetch the butter milk (Lassi) to his elder brother Sardar Bhagat Singh Ji, who was busy ploughing the fields. On seeing his brother S. Bhagat Singh Ji stopped ploughing and sat down under a tree to drink the lassi. He lovingly asked the Child to meanwhile carry on with the ploughing.

Baba Nand Singh Ji started with the plough and when he reached the other end, he stood still there and did not turn about. After finishing lassi, Sardar Bhagat Singh Ji, amazed at sudden stop, walked up to Baba Nand Singh Ji, still facing the other side. He enquired from Baba ji the reason for stopping there and not turning about to continue further.

The Holy Child told his older brother that as Sri Guru Granth Sahib was placed in the house infront of him, he could not turn his back towards that side. Sardar Bhagat Singh was astonished and wonderstruck at the Child's answer. He had seen him seated cross legged like a born Tapasavi and Sanyasi on the raised edge of a deep well only a year back and now he saw another miracle of unparalleled faith and devotion of the Child towards the Highest of the High and the Greatest of the Great Jagat Guru, Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

Later he fully realised what this innocent child was uttering then, he meant in letter and spirit and He would not turn his back towards Sri Guru Granth Sahib for the whole of his life.

This is just one example in the spiritual history Sikhi where true Gurmukhs show such wondrous and miraculous examples of perfection and excellence in adoring the Guru Granth Sahib.

Baba Nand Singh Ji was born conscious of the Sovereign Majesty of Sri Guru Granth Sahib and fully awake from a very early age. Dawn of rare Divine Light at the time of His Sacred Birth, his sitting cross-legged like a born Tapasavi in deep Samadhi on the narrow raised edge of a deep well at the tender age of five, and His proclamation as a child of only six years that He can not turn his back towards Sri Guru Granth Sahib only indicates that a True Gurmukh was born on this Earth and that he was totally in love with the spirit of Sri Guru Granth Sahib from his very infancy.

Although Baba Nand Singh Ji was most unconcerned with the world and most unattached to it yet Mahan Baba Harnam Singh Ji desired Him to spread the Glory of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. He instructed Him to raise aloft the Banner of Seva, Love and Worship of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Through the Grace of the Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaaj, Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj established the Supremacy of Sri Guru Granth Sahib over and above everything else and showed to the world the glorious path of cultivation of exclusive love for Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

Such was the Eternal Glory of Sri Guru Granth Sahib, so wonderfully deep rooted in the sanctuary of the heart of Baba Nand Singh Ji and so shines the Eternal Glory of Baba Nand Singh Ji himself at the Pinnacle of All Known Spiritual Glory. Gurmukh means that holy person whose face is always turned towards the Guru and Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj proved beyond any doubt that a Gurmukh's face is always turned towards his Guru physically, mentally and spiritually.
