Maryada of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj
abaji set afloat a wonderful maryada, a new marg, a unique Culture and tradition, because a prophet always carves out a new path.
From Baba Nand Singh Ji's unlimited and unique labour of love which His entire life was, has arisen/blossomed a wonderful maryada in its pristine purity and glory, which is love and worship of Eternal Sri Guru Granth Sahib as living Guru Nanak.
This supreme love of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj for the Great Guru Nanak shines in its wonderful effulgence in this charming and enrapturing maryada, the sikh way of life. This maryada, or the way of worship clearly unfolds the divine plan, the grand providential scheme behind His incarnation. His life in itself is a wonderful revelation of divine grandeur of Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
Sri Guru Nanak Sahib of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj lives eternally. He lives for ever. He responds and acknowledges physically the loving offerings of the faithful, the believers, the true devotees, the devout.
It was after twelve years of continuous and severe tapasya, soulful, one pointed, exclusive tapasya by Him that the Great Divine Master Baba Harnam Singh Ji Maharaj, blessed Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj with the direct vision eternal of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib. After Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj had enshrined resplendent Guru Nanak deep in the sanctuary of His holy heart, Baba Harnam Singh Ji Maharaj then transmitted, blessed and filled Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj with His own Supreme state of Divinity, Bliss, Splendour and auspiciousness.
Baba Harnam Singh Ji Maharaj transfigured Himself into Mahan Parkash, Divine Light- Eternal and within that Mahan Parkash then transfigures Himself into supreme Lord Guru Nanak. In this Light, brilliance of a thousand suns would pale into insignificance. Baba Harnam Singh Ji Maharaj then asks Baba Nand Singh Ji to enshrine the Eternal Luminous Form of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib deep in the sanctuary of His heart. It was at this holiest of the holy moments that Baba Harnam Singh Ji Maharaj passes on and transmits Divinity in its totality and auspiciousness in all its Glory to the Divine Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj. Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj's whole being was ablaze with Divinity and every pore of His body aglow with the immortal Name of the Lord.
Rare are the Divines who descend on this earth duly empowered and equipped with Divine Grace to shower the fragrance of the Holy Name. Invested with the Eternal Glory of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib, Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj fell at the holy feet of his beloved Master in gratitude. Baba Harnam Singh Ji Maharaj then instructed Babaji to blaze forth the splendour and Eternal Glory of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib and Sri Guru Granth Sahib all over.
Unique was the way in which Babaji unveiled the hidden glory of Sri Guru Granth Sahib and in which He unfolded the hidden eternal splendour of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib. Millions today serve and worship Sri Guru Granth Sahib in the beacon light shown by this towering Light House, Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj.
The Grace of Sri Guru Granth Sahib, flowed like a floodtide all over. Multitudes flocked like swarms of bees to taste this honey of Grace. They were all drawn and attracted in a strong and irresistible divine current. Such was the divine majesty of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj. The Grace of Sri Guru Granth Sahib was made integrative as a daily Nit Nem in daily routine. It became the very holy nature of those who thirsted for this Love-Divine.
Babaji's divine role appears to be to restore living faith in Sri Guru Granth Sahib, to restore Guru Drishti and Guru Bhavna in Sri Guru Granth Sahib, to raise and elevate it as it were, to Nirankar Drishti and Nirankar Bhavna. It was to raise the same faith which our forefathers so passionately nursed in their hearts in personal and direct service and worship of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib and His successive manifestations of Truth. He restored the faith in the validity and authenticity of Amrit bani in the Holy scripture of total and perfect identity of Guru Nanak sahib with Sri Guru Granth Sahib and vice-versa. He integrated lakhs of yearning souls with the lotus feet of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. He restored the highest respect, esteem, faith and loving devotion of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. He caused and effected integration of thousands of stranded souls with their Divine Support, Sri Guru Granth Sahib, and thus saved them from drowning in this burning ocean of universal illusion.
