The Lord of Love and Mercy,
Sri Guru Nanak Sahib, having graced this earth with His physical presence
for a period of 240 years from 1469 to 1708, passed on His legacy to Sri Guru Granth Sahib His true, live and eternal Representative for the redemption
Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj
provides us a perfect model worthy of emulation. He proved by His unique
life-style that whatever was prescribed in holy Sri Guru Granth Sahib
was to be contemplated with all humility and veneration, was to be diligently
followed and was to be practically lived. There was complete harmony between
the eternal truths Babaji talked of and His own truthful living.
Babaji had taken an unprecedented
plunge into this Ocean of Divinity with all yearning and with all mental
and physical faculties well directed and focussed on the Supreme Goal.
He had absolute conviction that Sri Guru Granth Sahib was God and He yearned,
thirsted to realize and see God face to face, to intimately talk to His
beloved Lord, to humbly and lovingly serve Him with His own hands.
God revealed Himself to Baba
Nand Singh ji Maharaj in all His Glory and that is what Sri Guru Granth Sahib stood for and meant to Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj. Whereas for others
Sri Guru Granth Sahib represents a mere holy scripture, for Baba Nand
Singh Ji Maharaj, Sri Guru Granth Sahib stands for the all powerful, luminous,
Ardaas by Mahan Babaji before
the Holy Sri Guru Granth Sahib included this :
Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj
Hazara Hazoor, Jahara Jahoor,
Kalyug ke Bohit, Nam Ke Jahaj,
Halat Palat Ke Rakhiak
Lok Parlok Ke Sahayak
Dasaan Patshahian Di Hajar Nazar Jaagdi Jot
Sahib Ji De Path Darshan Da
Dhian Dhar Ke Bolo Ji Sri WaheGuru
Kalyug Ke Bohit, Nam Ke Jahaj ; the great redeeming ship for an entire
epoch of kalyug is not a small ship designed for a fraction of mankind
only or for a small period of few hundred or few thousand years; this
Divine ship has unlimited capacity like God to ferry across the entire
mankind across this burning ocean of kalyug.
This Divine ship transcends all imaginative limits of space, and time
and age. Guru Nanak the Fifth, compiled and composed Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
The Lord had assumed a human garb as an epoch maker for the redemption
of suffering humanity.
Immensity of this ship can
be easily comprehended from the redeeming power of each and every hymn
of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. It can accommodate the whole human race, generations
after generations, for all times to come. This great ship is designed
for global and universal salvation and is not to be viewed as restricted
to only one individual, group, community, sect or nation. Elixir of Nam
flows from each hymn of Sri Guru Granth Sahib and each hymn contains the
ambrosial words of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib sung in the Glory of the Lord.
