met by him outside his village of Thoa Khalsa, Pakistan. where he stayed
under a tree beside the Gurudwara. When anyone asked him in or tried to
bring him food he refused saying that he had come all the way from Village
Mankapur, near Lucknow with his own food rashin. "I have not come of my
own free will." 'Mere Nirankar ka hukam se aiya hun. Main yahan se ek
jeeva lena hai!' "I've come by the will of God, to take one soul from here!"Actually Santji's grown-up son, Jeswant Singh was always fond of
meeting saints of every kind and it was he who first came to meet him, as
Santji had always told him to bring any visiting saints home to the house.
He first took with him his Chachaji Jesbir Singh. Santji said that his
younger brother was a real saint. That daily he would get up at 4 am, go
outside and melt the ice to have bath, and then sing prayers on every
step up to the top of the house where he did his morning 'path'.
As they went along the pathway to meet the visiting Saint Teja Singhji, he
quietly recited to himself a favorite poem of Hafiz. How beautiful and
amazing that when Jasbir and Jeswant Singh reach there, Sant Teja Singhji
first called out, " Jesbirji, let us also hear Hafiz :
"Ba mai sajjda rangeen kun gar Pira ma gah goed,
ki salik bekhabar na bawad, rasmo rahe manzil!"
Later when Sant Gulab Singhji heard the event , he secretly knew that
he was the one the saint had come for! He immediately went to meet him,
this saint 30 years younger then himself. At first sight of Sant Teja Singhji,
Santji became totally unconscious and for days did not leave his sight.
He told me himself that Teja Singhji never slept at night, but only for 2 hrs.
in the afternoon. At that time Santji would lie on a mat on the ground.
At night devotees would come and he would hear them sing 'Soni Mehiwal'
or 'Heer Ranjha' and again go into samadhi!
