Special Presentation on 25 January-Incarnation Day
Spiritual Guide Took Incarnation To the Souls Grant Salvation
Main Objective of Spiritual Saints: Ever since the creation of living beings, true spiritual pir-fakirs, saints and great men also incarnate with the purpose of salvation of their souls and dedicate their whole life to the service of humanity. Of course, here they eat, drink, get up and sit and do all the work like common people, but their holy life is full of spirituality without worldly and sensual desires.
The difference between them and the common people is that they do not come to this material world like common people, but they are the divine form of the Supreme Father, the resident of the Eternal Abode, and incarnate on this earth for the salvation of souls. Saints continue to inspire people to become human beings by following the teachings of religions throughout their life. They make their valuable contribution in getting people rid of the drugs, social evils, hypocrisy and bad practices spread in the society. In fact, a spiritual saint lives for human welfare and such a pious life belongs to the true Spiritual Guide Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj. His philanthropic life is a source of inspiration for the whole world.
Holy Incarnation & Early Life:
The most Revered Supreme Father God- Himself Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj descended from the Eternal Abode. His revered father`s name was Sardar Variam Singh Ji and the revered mother’s name was Aas Kaur Ji. His Holiness hailed from the holy village Shri Jalalana Sahib, district Sirsa, Haryana. His adorable father was the owner of huge land & property. His adorable grandfather Sardar Heera Singh Ji Sidhu was the Zaildar of the village. His Holiness belonged to Sidhu dynasty.
His Holiness was the only child of the adorable parents. The adorable parents named His Holiness as Sardar Harbans Singh Ji. Later, with His blessing, most Revered Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj christened Sardar Harbans Singh Ji as Sardar Satnam Ji ( Revered Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj). His adorable parents were very pious & religious minded. They used to serve the saints & the sages very sincerely. They would keep engrossed in the worship of God. There was no shortage of any worldly things but the desire to have a child for the period of 18 years would torment the adorable parents all the time.
In those days, a carefree & learned fakir happened to visit the village Shri Jalalana Sahib. He was a true saint who used to motivate people to worship God. The adorable parents invited him to their home & welcomed him from the core of their heart. He stayed in the village for a couple of days & during this period, he took the meals at the house of the adorable parents. The adorable mother herself would serve him the food. One day on having pleased, he proclaimed, “ Dear Devotees! Your devotion to worship God & sense of hospitality are supreme. Your supreme feeling for service to humanity is accepted by God. Your desire of having a child will be fulfilled definitely by God Almighty. A Supreme Divine Soul will take birth at your home.”
By the extreme blessings of God & the best wishes of the fakir, after a long gap of 18 years, the much awaited wish of the adorable parents to have a child was finally fulfilled. The most Revered Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj incarnated on 25 January 1919. Adorable parents felt overwhelmed happiness. As soon as this holy message reached the villagers & relatives, there ran a wave of happiness. Every living being- be it a human being or a creature- filled with pleasure. The whole environment seemed to be singing sonorous tunes! The divine ecstasy prevailed everywhere.
On the holy incarnation of the adorable Spiritual Master, the royal family was congratulated by one & all. As per existing custom and tradition, platters full of jaggery, jaggery powder, home made local sweets & corns were distributed in the village. The poor bags were filled with grains & sweets. Every living being & every creature of the village thanked God Almighty for the holy incarnation of His Holiness. On hearing the holy news of the holy incarnation of the Revered Param Pita Ji, the fakir also reached in the village & extended his best wishes to the adorable parents. The fakir revealed the fact: ‘Dear Devotees! A Supreme Soul God-Himself has incarnated at your home. Treat Him with full affection. His Holiness ( The Revered Spiritual Master) will stay with you for forty years only and after that the task entrusted by God, the work of serving humanity & granting salvation to the souls for which His Holiness has incarnated, will go to the Perfect Spiritual Master who has sent His holiness as your child.’
Since childhood, the face of His Holiness was extraordinarily radiant & magnetic. Whosoever watched, just kept watching. The divine radiant face didn`t let the eyes move to other direction. The water supplier who used to fill water in the house, when he was about to go back after filling the water one day, suddenly his eyes fell on the smiling face of the Revered Param Pita Ji lying in the cradle; he lost his consciousness & kept looking at the Revered Param Pita Ji without blinking his eyelids.
Suddenly the adorable mother looked at that water supplier, why is he looking at my Son like this. He may be having an evil intention. She ran & took her Son in her lap. Seeing this affection of the adorable mother towards her Son, the water supplier smiled & said, ‘Respected Mother, I was staring lovingly at your Son because I was having the glimpse of our spiritual leaders or revered incarnated personalities in His Holiness.’ Just then the adorable mother put a black mark on His forehead
His Holiness had been a unique personality since childhood. His childhood was full of sweetness. His practical knowledge was far more impressive than His age group companions. His Holiness was still at a young age when His adorable father left for the Eternal Abode. His Holiness was brought up by the adorable mother and adorable maternal uncle Sardar Veer Singh Ji.
His Holiness completed His education as a student of Government School, Mandi Kalanwali. His Holiness always extended polite & sympathetic attitude towards His class mates & rendered possible help to the needy. Once one of His class mates got fever in the school. His Holiness got him medicine from the doctor & dropped him at his home after sitting him on His own cycle. Everyone was familiar with Your sense sympathy towards others.
Help in the Marriage of a Poor Girl:
Once, a poor family came to the adorable mother to get some financial help. There were only a few days left for their daughter`s marriage. His Holiness was sitting beside the adorable mother, listening to the agony of their helplessness. His Holiness said to the adorable mother, “ Respected Mother, Please help them. Give them 150-200 rupees if they require 100 rupees, supposing that this is My own sister`s marriage.” Adorable mother`s heart filled with emotion after hearing such humanitarian sentiments from His Holiness. The Revered Param Pita Ji was an ocean of kindness since His childhood. This truth is widely known to the whole region. Whosoever- the poor or the needy- came at His doorstep, His Holiness never returned him empty. As per the time & the situation, His Holiness filled their bags with His compassion & benevolence according to their wishes.
Sympathy Towards Living Beings:
After studies, His holiness started taking interest in farming. His Holiness showered His grace not only on human beings but also on living beings. His Holiness didn`t remove any animal grazing in His own fields. Rather, even in His presence, if an animal entered the fields & was grazing the crop, His Holiness would never take it out. Every day a buffalo would come & start grazing the crop of gram.
His Holiness would never remove it from there. The buffalo used to fill its stomach & sit beside His Holiness. This complaint was made to the adorable mother. Next day His Holiness patting the back of that buffalo said, “ Dear Devotee! Now somebody has complained. Therefore, don`t graze the crop standing in one field, rather graze the crop while moving in different fields.” And all the villagers are a witness to the fact that after that day no one had seen that buffalo standing in a field & grazing the crop. In this way, there are lots of such examples of benevolence extended by the the Revered Param Pita Ji.
Interest in Public Welfare:
As His Holiness grew up, the scope of kindness, compassion & welfare activities extended. His Holiness would participate actively in the public welfare works of the village. His Holiness was always on the fore front to extend His contribution towards humanitarian welfare works. His Holiness got the construction work of Shri Gurudwara Sahib of the village completed while extending maximum help. The same Gurudwara Sahib is in the middle of the village.
Search For Truth:
His Holiness had been striving for union with Almighty Lord since childhood. His Holiness used to recite hymns from the Holy Gurbani in the morning & in the evening daily. His Holiness would listen to the Holy Gurbani very attentively. His Holiness would read repeatedly
“Dhur Ki Bani Aayee
Tin Sagli Chint Mitayee”
“Divine Voice when blessed
All worries are vanished”
and think about the Voice of God that removes all tensions & griefs.
His Holiness approached many sages & spiritual leaders, heard their sermons in order to recognize a Perfect Spiritual Guide. Whenever His Holiness met the sages and spiritual leaders, verified & tested them but the desired purpose of finding the way to Ultimate Truth was not fulfilled. His Holiness was constantly searching for the truth.
Meeting With Revered Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj:
At the same time, His Holiness met the most Revered Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj. From what His Holiness has heard about the Revered Sai Ji & Dera Sacha Sauda, after attending the spiritual congregation conducted by the Revered Sai ji & examining every truth, His Holiness devoted Himself solely to the Revered Sai Ji there & then. The Ultimate Truth, His Holiness was looking for, was in the divine presence of the Revered Sai Ji.
His Holiness was fully satisfied. His Holiness kept attending the spiritual congregation for three years & tried many a time to get initiated into God`s Words but every time the Revered Sai Ji would say that “His Holiness has yet not been commanded to be blessed with the God`s Words. We will call out the name of His Holiness at the right time & bless with the God`s Words, till then keep attending the spiritual congregation. The Negative Power won`t call His Holiness. We Ourself are responsible for His Holiness.”
Foot-print of God-Himself:
Once upon a time when the Revered Sai Ji went to the nearby village of Shri Jalalana Sahib. There the Revered Sai ji made a round circle from His holy stick addressing the accompanying volunteers, “ Come here, We will show you the foot-print of God-Himself.” One of the volunteers from village Gadrana ( who knew that this is the foot-print of the Revered Param Pita Ji) said, ‘ This is the footprint of Zaildar Harbans Singh Ji ( The childhood name of the Revered Param Pita Ji ) of Shri Jalalana Sahib.’ At this, the Revered Sai Ji, while striking the holy stick forcefully on the ground, replied, “ We don`t know any Zaildar. We only know that this is the footprint of God-Himself.”
The Living Spiritual Leader:
Most Revered Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj conducted a spiritual congregation on March 14, 1954 at ‘Dera Sacha Sauda Anami Dham’ of village Ghukanwali. After the spiritual congregation, His Holiness was personally called by the Revered Sai Ji. “ It has been commanded to bless His Holiness with God`s Words today; come inside & sit near Our seat, We are just coming there.” When His Holiness went inside, a lot of seekers of God`s Words were sitting there & there was no place near the royal seat of the Revered Sai Ji. Therefore, His Holiness sat in the last of the seekers of the God`s Words.
The Revered Sai Ji came inside & called out the holy name of His Holiness & asked to sit near His royal seat. The Revered Sai Ji openly declared, “ His Holiness is being blessed with the God`s Words while making His Holiness sit near the royal seat since a very special & specific task is to be entrusted to His Holiness. His Holiness will be designated as the Living Spiritual Leader & the duty of bestowing the God`s Words to the masses will also be entrusted to His Holiness.” The Revered Sai Ji revealed the truth of the Supreme Master in the village Ghukanwali on the pretext of the initiation of the God`s Words that the Revered Param Pita Ji is the Supreme Master, God-Himself who has come on the earth as a supporter of humanity for the salvation of the living beings.
The Revered Sai Ji started conducting test after test of His Holiness since the very first meeting. Following these spiritual tests, the Revered Sai Ji stayed at the Dera of Shri Jalalana Sahib for eighteen days. At the same time the Revered Sai Ji got the building of Gadrana Dera demolished & sometimes the building of Chormar Dera was also demolished. On one hand different buildings of different deras were being demolished, on the other hand it was ordered by the Revered Sai Ji that the building materials like wood, iron, doors, windows etc be collected at Shri Jalalana Sahib. The Revered Sai Ji put the duty of His Holiness to carry the debris of the building of Gadrana Dera.
While the debris of the demolished buildings of different deras was being carried, the Ghukanwali volunteers were asked to take away the already collected debris. His Holiness was still busy in transporting the debris of the demolished building of Gadrana Dera, the Revered Sai ji started the reconstruction work of the Gadrana Dera. An ordinary human being can`t understand this strange working of the Revered Spiritual Master. In fact, this divine working was a part of the strenuous test being conducted by the Revered Sai Ji. His Holiness has already devoted & dedicated Himself to the holy service of the Revered Sai Ji. Therefore, His Holiness sincerely obeyed the holy words of the Revered Sai Ji. In this way, after conducting different arduous exercises & tests and finding His Holiness fully eligible, the Revered Sai Ji declared, “ We conducted tests of Sardar Satnam Singh Ji & didn`t let His Holiness( Sardar Satnam Singh Ji) know.”
Yet Another Arduous Test, Order to Demolish the Mansion-like House:
One day the Revered Sai Ji ordered to demolish the mansion-like personal house of His Holiness & bring the demolished & all other related items of the mansion to Dera Sacha Sauda Sirsa. Outwardly speaking, in worldly terms, it was a strenuous test but His Holiness didn`t care for the public prestige & obeyed every word of the Revered Sai Ji. Acting upon the holy order of the Revered Sai Ji, His Holiness demolished His mansion with His own hands, carried many truck loads of the building material & household items to Dera Sacha Sauda Sirsa & placed the same in the presence of the Revered Sai Ji.
It was the day of the monthly spiritual congregation. At Saturday midnight, the Revered Sai Ji came out. Looking at the huge pile of the goods, the Revered Sai Ji said, “Whose luggage is this? Take it out right now. If someone comes and asks, what will be the answer? Whosoever has the goods, take care of your belongings yourself.” It was cold winter & drizzle and cold waves were flowing from the above making the atmosphere extremely cold. His Holiness followed the holy orders of the Revered Sai Ji & spent the whole night in the open guarding His luggage & enjoying the divine ecstasy. In the morning, His Holiness gave away all His belongings to the devotees & sat in the divine presence of the Revered Sai Ji.
Blessing of the Spiritual Succession:
As per holy orders of the Revered Sai Ji, His Holiness was profusely decorated from top to toe with garlands of currency notes on February 28, 1960. His Holiness sat on a jeep & led a royal procession throughout the city of Sirsa. Thousands of the devotees of Dera Sacha Sauda participated in this procession. Every body was astonished to witness the splendid occasion & came to know that Sardar Harbans Singh Ji of Shri Jalalana Sahib has been declared as the Spiritual Successor to Revered Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj.
On its return to Dera Sacha Sauda, the procession was welcomed on the road by the Revered Sai Ji Himself. The Revered Sai Ji declared publically, “ From today, We have transformed Sardar Harbans Singh Ji from an individual self to Satnam-the Supreme Power, from an individual soul to God-Himself. It is the same Satnam on whose support the whole universe is standing.” The Revered Sai Ji Himself enthroned His Holiness in the Tera Vas ( Sacred House ) specially constructed for Revered Shah Satnam Singh Ji. The royal stage was specially decorated. The Revered Sai Ji called the Revered Param Pita Ji through ten volunteers & enthroned on the royal stage along with Himself. The Revered Sai Ji stated in the spiritual congregation:
“ From today onwards, We have granted Sardar Satnam Singh Ji ( Revered Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj ) Our Own Form. This is the same Satnam whose holy name the people of the world kept reciting throughout their lives. By holy orders of the Revered Sawan Shah Sai Ji, We have brought Shah Satnam Ji from the abodes above & placed His Holiness before all of you. Whosoever chances to have His Vision even from the back will not go to the Hell. His Holiness will save him by virtue of His benevolence.”
As the Second Spiritual Master of Dera Sacha Sauda:
The Revered Param Pita Ji enthroned as the second Spiritual Master of Dera Sacha Sauda on February 28,1960. His Holiness granted immense love to the lacs of the devotees of Dera Sacha Sauda for 30-31 years. By virtue of His extreme benevolence, the devotees are fully devoted & dedicated to the principles of Dera Sacha Sauda.
The followers who used to be in hundreds increased to thousands to lacs.

Not only the class mates but also the whole staff members were impressed by His welfare & humanitarian passion. It is generally seen that many people rebuke any needy who comes to their door & don`t offer water but His Holiness didn`t remove any animal grazing in His own fields. Rather, even in His presence, if an animal entered the fields & was grazing the crop, His Holiness would never take it out.
In this way, there are lots of such examples of benevolence extended by the the Revered Param Pita Ji. When His Holiness grew up, the scope of welfare activities extended.
