Guruji is the "light divine" that came on earth to bless and enlighten humanity. On 7th July 1954, the sun rose in Dugri village at Malerkotla, Punjab (India), to herald the birth of Guruji in a hamlet. Guruji spent the early stages of his life around Dugri, went to school and college and finally graduated with a Masters degree each in economics and political science. He had a spark of spirituality in him right from childhood--say those who knew him then.
It did not take long for the spark to get fully lit; the shower of Guruji's blessings began to fall on the earth to lessen the sufferings of hundreds of thousands of people. Guruji sat at various places including Jalandhar, Chandigarh, Panchkula and New Delhi--and satsangs began happening. It was here that people came from all over India and other parts of the world to seek his blessings. The tea and langar prasad (blessed food) served at Guruji's satsang had his special divine blessings. The devotees experienced his grace in various forms: incurable diseases were healed and the entire matrix of problems ranging from legal to financial to emotional were solved. Some members of the sangat also had divine darshans (visions) of deities. There was nothing impossible for Guruji, for he wrote fate, and could re-write it.
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. All were equally in need of him and Guruji blessed all alike. Those sitting close to him, touching his feet, benefitted 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. He once explained that his "Blessings always" were not for this life alone, but ended with nirvana.
Guruji never delivered any sermons or prescribed any rituals, yet his message was received by the devotee in ways known only to the devotee. This "connection" with him was not only elevating and energizing but also a deeply transforming one. It lifted the devotees life to a level where joy, fulfillment and peace came easy. Guruji's form exuded a divine fragrance, similar to roses. Even today, his fragrance is felt as proof of his presence by his devotees.
Guruji took mahasamadhi on 31st May 2007. He left no successor : for the "light divine" there is none. His emphasis was that the devotee always get connected "directly" with him , and more so, through the medium of prayers and meditation. Guruji has a temple, popularly known as Bade Mandir located at Bhatti mines in South Delhi. Today, when Guruji is no more in his mortal guise, his blessings are working the same wonders, with his grace falling equally on those who never met him in their lifetime.
