t so chanced one day that my respected father went to pay his humble homage
at the Lotus Feet of Mahan Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj. He was called inside.
Baba lsher Singh Ji was about to wash the Lotus Feet of Mahan Babaji.
My father with folded hands, humbly prayed for Babaji's kind permission
for this sacred service, which the most compassionate Babaji granted.
Father placed the Holy Feet of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj in a small tub,
half filled with water and with his trembling hands washed the Holy Feet.
After wiping the Holy Feet with a towel, father picked up the tub and
went aside to dispose of the water as advised by Baba Isher Singh Ji but
he drank to his heart's content, the Blissful 'Charan Amrit' of Mahan
Babaji's Lotus Feet. Some of the Charan Amrit he sprinkled over his face,
head, and body and tried to pour the leftover on the grass. He experienced
a strange and mysterious phenomenon there. He noticed that 'Charan Amrit'
while in the process of being poured, physically vanished before touching
Baffled and Dazzled by this miracle, he went into deep contemplation when
confronted with a revealing vision. Celestial Beings in thousands were
yearning just for a single drop of that exalted Charan Amrit and did not
let a single drop fall on the ground. He was really amazed to observe
the yearning, the real thirst on their Holy Faces. This could be compared
to a Chatrik bird who does not care for any other source of water, the
mighty rivers, the beautiful lakes and flowing springs, for nothing else,
but only for a very special drop of rain water called 'Swanti Boond'.
It would prefer death rather than quench its thirst from any other source
of water. It only craves for this drop (boond). So were celestial beings,
who were craving for a drop of glorious Charan Amrit of the Lotus Feet
of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj.
This is no ordinary Swanti Boond, for which the Celestial Beings were
yearning and craving. Chatrik bird is only a mortal bird, thirsting for
a drop of rainwater, whereas in this case, Celestials of Heaven were craving
for a drop of this rarest of rare Nectar-Charan Amrit of THE LORD OF ALL
CELESTIALS - BABA NAND SINGH JI MAHARAJ.
It was really a Wonder of Wonders. Who had assumed this physical body
of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj? A Divine Body each pore of which was aglow
with the Nectar of NAM. Seven crore pores (Romes) of Mahan Babaji's Holy
Body were reciting the Divine Name every Moment in the Sphere of Time.
All the Dargahi Hasti's - Celestial Beings of Heavens, like the Chatrik
bird, were craving for just a drop of the Nectar, the Charan Amrit of
Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj. The craze for a drop of the Nectar of this
Swanti Boond on those Divine faces is unimaginable and defies description.
It so appears that Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj was the Supreme Object of
Adoration and Worship for all the Celestials; He was the very support
of all Celestials, all the Worlds, being the Incarnation of Nam.

Nam Ke Dharey Aagas Pataal
Nam Ke Dharey Sagal Aakar

Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj
was the Greatest Manifestation-Avtar of the Divine Name on this Mother
Earth and being so shines Eternally in all His Glory. He is the Repository
of all the Divine Excellencies and Virtues. He is IMPERISHABLE. The radiance,
the lustre of seven crore romes (pores) of His Holy Body shine far above
and beyond such like seven crore Suns of the Universe.
His Holy Body was an Ocean of Bliss and every drop of the water used for
the Sacred wash of His Holy Feet became the most precious Nectar (Swanti
Boond) for the Celestials. Fragrance of the Divine Nam and the Grace of
the Lord was scattered far and wide through every pore of His Holy Body.
Having witnessed this intensity of a unique Tarap and Vyakulta on the
Holy Faces of the Celestials, my worshipful father's face also radiated
a peculiar and most touching sign of Tarap and Vyakulta, each and every
moment of His life. It was easily discernable on his radiant face that
Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj was the Life of his life and the Supreme Enchanter
of his loving heart.
No wonder He used to proclaim with the beat of drum, that Baba Nand Singh
Ji Maharaj was the Lord of this World and the Worlds hereafter and the
Holy Name of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj Purifies All The Three Worlds.
It become father's Nit Nem, a daily routine to profusely bathe the Lotus
Feet of his Beloved Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj with his humble and holy
tears flowing from the depths of his heart.
After this holy experience father's devotional instinct was always in
spate within and gushed forth in a stream of tears daily to bathe the
Sacred Feet of Babaji and then drink that Nectar to his heart's content.
He never missed this Holy Nit Nem till the very last day of his physical
Some of the Charan-Amrit, He had sprinkled on his face, head and body.
||Gur Ki Rein Nit Majan Karo
Janam Janam Ki Haumain Mal Haro
||Sri Guru Granth Sahib (239)
He took both internal and
external bath in the Charan Amrit of Babaji. It was the Nectar of Humility
he had drunk to his heart's content. It was a mortal's dip in the Nectar
of Immortality. With the Charan Amrit overflowing in the body, the humble
heart of father became a perpetual seat for Babaji's Lotus Feet. A heart
totally free from egotism and darkness. With this marvellous effect of
intense humility on him, his was the Nam Packed Heart, his was the Nectar
Filled Body, his was the Light Packed Soul in the rarest of the rare Grace
of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj.
And from that humble heart, a powerful mighty petition of Mercy, later,
arose to the Lord of Lords, the Supreme Lord of Kalyug Sri Guru Nanak
Sahib, known the Worldover for His Mercy and Compassion on the poor and
