Heart to Heart
Sardar Bahadur Jagat Singh combined a direct, forthright manner of expression.
He would clearly convey his thoughts in a few precise words. Once the pathi was reciting a hymn which has the refrain, “Even if there is gale or storm, hail or rain, I will go for my Satguru’s darshan.” The sangat was repeating the refrain with great fervour. It was the rainy season and suddenly it started to drizzle.
Everyone got up and scurried to the verandas for shelter. Sardar Bahadur, who had already arrived at satsang, continued sitting on the dais; he smiled and said, “A moment ago there was such a brave talk of love for the Guru. Now that love is drowned by a few drops of rain!”
Heaven on Earth
In a letter to a disciple, Maharaj Sawan Singh wrote:
When I address you as “Dear Daughter,” it is from the spiritual viewpoint. Our worldly relations, like husband and wife, son and father or brother, are temporary – at best till death, when we part not only from them but even from our own bodies (material, astral and causal); also from Pind and maya. Only Satguru remains with the soul and takes it to Sach Khand, the place of perpetual bliss. What better name than son or daughter can be given to a soul that accompanies so far?
