Glimpses from the life of Baba Nand Singh Ji


Recommended Posts

“In the process of devotion and love of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib if sleep overtakes, it is then better to fall in the well and die rather than live a life otherwiseâ€

said Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj at an Age of 5

t so happened one day that in the very early hours of a morning, the parents discovered the child missing from the house. He was not yet even five years of age. They first searched him in the vicinity and later set out to search him outside the village alongwith some other elderly people. He had taken a bath at 12 midnight at a well and was discovered sitting in deep meditation on a raised and narrow bricked edge of that well outside the village. He was seated cross-legged in samadhi nearly for three hours now in complete solitude. A little sleep could plunge the child deep into the well and surprisingly for that very reason, he had selected that spot.

It appeared as if Bhagat Dhruva had descended from his lofty spiritual heights to re-enact and relive his arduous meditation and tapasaya in a new tiny human frame, but this time for the whole of his life.

Elderly people having spotted him found him in deep ecstasy and total divine absorption. They quietly approached him and physically lifted him up to safe-guard against any sudden fall of the child in the deep well. When questioned as to why he had selected the raised bricked narrow edge of a well for his prayers, thereby risking his very life, he replied “In the process of devotion and love of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib if sleep overtakes, it is then better to fall in the well and die rather than live a life otherwiseâ€. Such was the unique devotional yearning and earnestness of this holy child. This was the state of spiritual awakening in him at that delicate age. Such was the mighty determination and resolution of this spiritual lion even as a tender child of five.

waheguru waheguru !!!!
