One day Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale got all the Singh’s together at the Dera and said to them that they needed a Singh for some seva. One Singh got up and said that they wanted to do the seva, Sant Ji said to the Singh that he wouldn’t be able to do the seva, so then Sant Ji chose Baba Thakur Singh Ji to do the seva.
When Baba Ji started doing Sant Ji’s seva, Sant Ji didn’t let Baba Ji go to sleep properly. Infact whenever Sant Ji used to send Baba Ji to go and rest, a few minutes after Sant Ji used to send a Singh to go and wake Baba Ji up. Whenever Baba Ji used to come back to Sant Ji, Sant Ji used to say angrily to Baba Ji that “Have you come here to sleep? that if you have then to go back home.”
After a year of seva, Sant Ji said to Baba Ji that they thought that Baba Ji would run away from this seva, but they didn’t. After this period Baba Ji got a lot of Bakshish from Sant Ji.
Sant Ji once said that peope come to stay in the Jatha to become a Giani, Ragi etc. But theirs one Singh, one Gurmukh in the Jatha that hasn’t got no pavanah, no icha for anything. The Singh’s asked Sant Ji to tell them who that Singh was, Sant Ji replied that the Singh is Bhai Thakur Singh IchoGill Wale, meaning Baba Thakur Singh Ji Khalsa.
Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale once told Baba Thakur Singh Ji that their janam was only for them, that they had no more janams. Sant Ji then asked Baba Ji that if they wanted, they will take Baba Ji to Sachkhand Sahib. At this point Baba Ji had a thought, the thought was that they wanted to do more seva of the Singh’s. Sant Ji said to Baba Ji before Baba Ji could tell them this, that it was ok for them to do more Singh’s seva and that whenever their ready to come to Sachkhand Sahib, that they can with their own wish.
Sant Ji taught Singh’s how to do Katha, Kirtan, Paath, and Parchar.
Sant Ji once said that Baba Thakur Singh Ji is a Singh that doesn’t need to teach Singh’s Katha, Kirtan, Paath, and Parchar, that whenever Baba Ji does bachan to a Singh, they will become whatever Baba Ji wants them to become.
Respect for Sangat and Gurbani
When Sant Jee would go from one village to another village, sometimes Sangat would bring horses for Sant Jee to sit on, but Sant Jee would not sit on them. One time Sant Kartar Singh brought a horse for Sant Gurbachan Singh Jee to sit on and go to Sant Kartar Singh’s village for a program, but Sant Gurbachan Singh Jee did not get onto the horse, they said: Why should I sit on a horse and the rest of the Jatha walk on the ground? Another thing is that all these Singhs are Guru Roop, and secondly all these Singhs have gutkai Sahibs with them, some are reciting Gurbani so it is not respectful to Gurbani for me to sit on a horse, higher than everyone else.
