Leaders of Damdami Taksaal
On 19th February 1960 Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale met Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir Singh in Ludhiana at Bhai Sahib’s residence. They did vichaar on Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji’s Manglan. Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh was ill at the time. Sant Giani Kartar Singh Ji Khalsa was also present and other members of the jatha.
They started vichaar on Gurbani. Sant Ji said to Bhai Sahib that the anand Bhai Sahib get’s from doing simran and the avasta they’ve got that they have ras. After hearing those words of Sant Ji Bhai Sahib got very emotional. Bhai Sahib then replied by saying that Sant Ji was saying all those things to him in nimrata and that the truth was that Sant Ji is the Jathedar (Mukhi) of Kalgidhar Paatshah’s Taksal and that they have Brahm Vidiya and that they are a Mahapurakh. Bhai Sahib then told Sant Ji that they have read their antreev meanings of Raag Mala the ones that you can’t find anywhere in any teeka’s. Then Bhai Sahib did vichaar and agreed that Raag Mala is Gurbani and said that “Bani Agam Hai Sikh Bhulanhar Teh Guru Bakhshanhar Hai.” Also Bhai Sahib said that Sant Ji had Apaar Kirpa.
This was the last time Sant Ji and Bhai Sahib met. After the vichaar ended Sant Ji and the jatha had something to eat and drink and then Sant Ji and Bhai Sahib said fateh to one another and then Sant Ji left.
After that the next day Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale went to Rara Sahib to attend a meeting which included other Mahapurakh’s Sant Isher Singh Ji Rara Sahib Wale Sant Giani Kirpal Singh Ji Sato Gali Wale Giani Niranjan Singh Patiala Wale and Giani Arjun Singh Ji Muni. After this meeting another two-four other meetings happened. These Mahapurakh’s then had meetings with the main Shromani committee members and other vidvaan’s and made the final decision regarding the Manglan.
