His Holiness Huzoor Pita Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan incarnated on August 15, 1967 to the most Revered father, Sardar Magghar Singh Ji and the most Respected Mata Naseeb Kaur Ji, in the holy village SriGurusarmodia, district SriGanganagar, in the state of Rajasthan, India.
Sardar Magghar Singh Ji was a landlord and the head of his village. Mata Naseeb Kaur was a dedicated devotee of the Lord. Shah Mastana Ji in his last satsang (spiritual discourse) in January, 1960 had repeatedly said, “Exactly after seven years from now, we will come again in the form of the third body (the Third Master)”. Sometimes people do not at once believe the words of saints, but when the said thing is proved true, then they realize its significance. Similarly, at that time no devotee could understand this statement of Shah Mastana Ji. It proved true and was realized when Huzoor Maharaj Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji incarnated on 15th, August1967, exactly after the completion of the said seven years.
His Holiness was named “Gurmeet Singh” by His parents. Being the only child in his family, His Holiness was the favourite of all and was loved by all. Deeds and activities of His Holiness from the very childhood illustrated that he was not an ordinary child. The respected parents also came to realize that their son was not a mere child but the very image of the Lord. Therefore, they never hurt him physically or verbally. The natives of the village had also come to know about the great soul. His Holiness, since childhood, was of a very kind and helping nature. His Holiness helped the poor and the needy financially and in every required way. These inborn qualities of His Holiness are a part of his personality today as well. His Holiness at the age of seven got Naam from Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji at Dera Sacha Sauda, Sirsa on March 31, 1974. In other words, one Master Saint found the other one. After getting Naam, His Holiness motivated his friends to get the same.
During his education, His Holiness showed excellent results in academics, sports and cocurricular activities. Whatever task His Holiness begun, he did it with great dedication and confidence. At the age of eight, His Holiness had started driving tractor for agricultural purposes in his fields. His Holiness used to take rest only after finishing the work he had started. On 23rd September, 1990 the actual secret was disclosed when Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji invited his disciples from all over the country and conducted an influential satsang in which His Holiness declared Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji as his successor to the throne. In a formal ceremony, Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj bestowed the Spiritual Wealth upon Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji and handed over the charge of the Dera to him. This auspicious day, 23rd September, 1990 is an important day not only in the history of Dera Sacha Sauda, but also in the history of mankind.
His Holiness left his family at the age of 23 and sacrificed his personal life completely to serve humanity. To promote religious harmony and communal equality, His Holiness added the following words to His name: Ram (name of a Hindu Lord) , Rahim (name of Muslim adept) and Insan (oneness as a human).
Since then, His Holiness has been working tirelessly to spread the message and divine blessings of Shah Satnam Singh Ji all over the world. The Present Master has initiated over 50 million souls on the path of God Realization. His Holiness has transformed many atheists towards the field of spirituality. His Holiness has motivated lakhs of people to do selfless service to mankind. His Holiness made millions of people realize the importance of the omnipresent God. It is a big landmark in the history of mankind. His Holiness stated, “All those people who will remember Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj by repeating NaamShabd with pure heart, will definitely be honoured by the pious vision i.e. the live presence of Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj”. Also, His Holiness said, “Any disciple who will make a request for the fulfillment of a reasonable desire to the Satguru by meditating at around 3’o clock early in the morning, that request will directly reach the Satguru and will definitely be accepted by him”.
His Holiness has built more than a dozen ashrams in the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Delhi and Chandigarh. His disciplined life, extraordinary hard work and supreme love for humanity becomes explicitly clear by seeing his busy schedule. Proverbs such as ‘Service to mankind is service to the God’ & ‘Love is God and God is Love’, get perfectly and precisely exemplified by watching his activities. His Holiness has also composed hundreds of hymns and has written many books. A remarkable system has been started by Huzoor Maharaj Ji, where by, the childless couples are blessed with children, given by families having more children. Hundreds of such children have already been transferred. To enhance community participation in the welfare works, His Holiness has organized the followers into functional blocks. Each block consists of around 30 villages ( approximately 510 thousand volunteers). In every block, there is a committee of 5 responsible people each of whom is known as ‘punch’. In their respective blocks, these teams direct the humanitarian and welfare works like providing free medical treatment to poor patients, constructing houses for the poor, giving financial help for marriage of destitute girls, donating blood and eyes, solving cases of disputes without litigation etc.
At the state level, His Holiness has organized a team of 25 people which supervises the welfare works done by the blocks in their state and settles the dispute cases which the punch members at the block level have failed to solve. To do disaster relief and humanitarian work, His Holiness formed a special welfare team ‘Shah Satnam Ji Green ‘S’ Welfare Force ’. More than 68,000 volunteers have already registered in this force. Inspired by His Holiness, these members have vowed to serve humanity during natural disasters in any part of the world. In the direction of welfare of humanity, Huzoor Maharaj Ji’s ceaseless efforts are still under way. Huzoor Maharaj Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji is carrying out his duties with all the dedication and is showering his blessings on humanity. Under the superb guidance of His Holiness, Dera Sacha Sauda is progressing in all respects. Day by day, the number of devotees is increasing and the message of truth is being conveyed throughout the world. People from various countries like U.S.A., Canada, U.A.E., Australia, U.K., etc. come to Dera Sacha Sauda to acquire the wealth of Naam from the Perfect Master.
Not only Satsang, Guruji has come up with a full fledged movie series wherein He blends spirituality and entertainment in perfect proportion to provoke righteous thoughts in larger masses.
With the grace of Huzoor Maharaj Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji and his hard work towards the upliftment of humanity, Dera Sacha Sauda is progressing by leaps and bounds.
Huzoor Maharaj Ji says:-
“Na hum kiya na kar saken, na hi hum kuchh janat, Jo kiya karenge Shah Satnam Ji, bhayo Sant hi Sant”.
(Neither have we done, nor can we do anything. We do not know anything. Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji has done whatever has been done and only His Holiness will do whatever will be done).
