Goray Sergeant Nu Jungle Vich Darshan Dittay

([He] Gave Audience To The White Sergeant In A Jungle)

Bhagat Singh and Sukhdev Singh were two brothers. Bhagat Singh was the

president of Namdhari Sangat at the time this happened. One day he was

driving Satguruji's car towards Kampala when suddenly he was ordered

to make a stop. [satguruji] got down and started walking into the

jungle, where a small but clean, livable place was found. In that

place lived one Caucasian in the Namdhari Bana (Uniform).

This white Englishman was a sergeant in the British army. When the

lawless British arrested and deported Satguru Ram Singh Ji to Ilahabad

in 1872, the mentioned sergeant was on duty there. There Satguru Ram

Singh Ji stayed for almost a month.

The English chief, lord Wable had then given an order that all those

imprisoned there be hanged. With the Satguru was one Mangal Singh, who

had bestowed one Chini (White horse) upon Satguru Ram Singh Ji. Upon

hearing lord Wable's order, Mangal Singh became discontent. He became

very worried about his family and especially his children. The

all-knowing Satguru, to console Mangal Singh, said: "Mangal Siha

Ghabra Na, Sanu Phansi Dayn Vala Aap Nahi Rehna|" [Fear Not Mangal

Singh, The Person Who Wants To Hang Us Will Be No More Himself."].

Lord Wable went to see the site at the Andaman cellular jail. He

wanted to know how many more people could be accommodated there.

There, imprisoned, was one Sher Muhammad. He was sentenced to die

there even though he was innocent. Life in the Andaman cellular jail

was no different than putting a live person through hell. The place

was crawling with pests, and the prisoners there were put to do all

sorts of vigorous laboring tasks. Going through the hardship made Sher

Muhammad hopeless and he thought it would be better to die than live

under such circumstances.

The omniscient Satguru had then, with His grace, planted in Sher

Muhammad's mind the idea that since he was ready to give up his life,

that he should finish off lord Wable as well.

One day a dagger came into Sher Muhammad's possession. Since then he

started waiting for the right opportunity to attack. One day as lord

Wable was getting off a ship to get on a small boat, Sher Muhammad saw

it to be his chance and at once seized the opportunity and stabbed

lord Wable twice in the back. He was badly injured and consequently

died at the hospital.

Sher Muhammad was put to trial. In the filled courtroom, he announced

to the judge: "My Khuda (God) has given me this order. I was going to

die anyway, but it is better to follow God's Words and finish off a

criminal before dying." Sher Muhammad was later found guilty and

consequently hanged.

On the other side, other than Satguru Ram Singh Ji, ten Suba Sahibs,

Sant Mangal Singh and Bhai Nanu Singh were detained at Ilahabad. It

was not much later when the Maharaja of Patiala gave an order that to

free Mangal Singh, whom he insisted on being innocent of all charges.

Satguruji's Words were thus fulfilled. Mangal Singh was not only not

hanged but even returned home.

There (in Ilahabad) whenever Satguruji would give discourse to the

Suba Sahibs, the mentioned sergeant would be carefully listening. The

sergeant knew the Indian language and hence he paid considerable

attention to Satguruji's Words. One day he heard Satguruji say that

"Gori Sarkar Bohuti Dayr Nahi Rehni." ["The White (English) Government

Would Not Last For Too Long."]. The Satguru's Words cleansed the white

sergeant's heart. Keeping faith in the Satguru's Words, one day he

made a request saying, "Babaji, the Naam that you recite, can I recite

it too?" Realizing the sergeant's faith and commitment, Satguruji also

gave him the Bhajan (Naam).

When the order was issued for Satguruji to be transported else where,

the sergeant followed Him until He reached the sea port at Calcutta.

There he inquired, "Babaji, what is your order for me now?" Satguruji

ordered that he was already given the Bhajan and that he should do

Bhajan with his family and drink water obtained from natural sources only.

After his retirement, the sergeant evidently traveled to the jungle in

Africa where he spent his life meditating. Giani Teja Singhji said

that he told me all about this white sergeant because Sri Satguru

Partap Singh Ji had walked through the jungle just to meet the

mentioned white sergeant.

Once a few teenagers, wood collectors by profession, traveled through

the jungle in Uganda. They were not Namdharis. They went and saw this

white person who had constructed a small but spotless place to live

in. Upon seeing him doing Bhagti (Meditating) and wearing Namdhari

attire several times, one day they decided to ask him "From where did

you get these clothes?" The sergeant told them his entire story from

meeting with Satguru Ram Singh Ji to how he received the Bhajan. The

boys then went on to ask "Have you had Darshan of Satguru Ram Singh Ji

ever since?" to which he replied "At first, for about two years I did

not have His Darshan, but then one day as I thought of the Satguru in

great anguish, Babaji came and while placing His Hand on my shoulder,

He said that he was no longer under the custody of the whites and that

He would travel to several other countries before returning to His own

Land. Now whenever I think of Him, I am blessed with His audience.

Because of that person's level of spirituality, Satguru Partap Singh

Ji Himself traveled through the jungle to give him His Darshan and

bless him with happiness. He then told everything to the driver,

Bhagat Singh, who told Giani Teja Singh about it. Giani Teja Singh had

told me this entire Sakhi so I am now putting it forward to the Sadh

Sangat.
