Leaders of Damdami Taksaal

What Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Jee gave to the Khalsa Panth

Sant Jee would travel all over India with 100-150 Singhs in the Jatha, whom they would teach Katha, Keertan etc. Doing Gurmat Parchar they gave Amrit to hundreds of thousands, made thousands into Shud Paatis ( those that can recite Gurbani correctly), and made many into Gianis (knowledgeable ones).

Sant Jee would teach their students the meanings of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee, Dasam Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee, Bhai Gurdaas Deean Vaaran and Kabbit Savaiyai, Bhai Nand Lal Jee’s Gazals, Sri Guru Panth Parkash, Gur Bilas Patshahee 6 and 10, Mehma Parkash, Sri Nanak Parkash, Sri Gur Partap Suraj Granth, other small books, Prabodh Chandar Natak, Vichaar Saagar, Birtee Prabhakar, Moksh Panth, etc. At both times (morning and evening) sangat would listen to katha and the vidarthees would open up their pothia and they would listen to the arths, and write them down and do veechar of them. 


This travelling university (Taksal) not only gave gurmat vidya to students, but it also made the students into true gursikhs. A lot of Parchar of gursikhi has been done and continues to be done to this day, with Maharaj Jee’s kirpa. Many of Sant Jee’s students have become Granthi Singhs at the Five Takhats and other historical Gurdwarai throughout India. Many became scholars and katha vaachiks.
