Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji - Pt 2 of 2

(By my Brother)

...Sant Baba Attar Singh ji requested his mother to receive Amrit. She wouldn’t. Khalsa ji, I pleaded with Sikh women to receive Amrit, but they say things like, “O my husband is going to receive it and I’ll be blessed to.” But, I say remember Maharaaj Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji’s words,

“Karmee apo apnee, ke nerai ke dhoor.”
“Our actions are our own,
some are close to God
and some are far away.”

Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji continued, “Mata Ji, dearest mother, recieve Amrit and make your life successful.” She said, “O don’t worry about me son, I’ll take Amrit one day.” Sadly, she passed away soon afterwards. Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji was in a nearby village administrating Amrit as part of the Punj Pyare. After the ceremony he got the message of his mother’s demise and he quickly returned home. Thousands of people had already gathered.
All her life she had never missed her daily prayers and meditation (Nitnem and Naam), but she had never received Amrit. Amrit has to be received by a person on the spiritual path so that they can reap the fruits of their spiritual labouring. For example, one particular fruit tree’s seeds don’t germinate until a bird eats the fruit and wherever the bird’s droppings fall the undigested seed takes root. Nitnem and Naam is the seed, but until you recieve amrit from the Punj Pyare it’s not going to take root and grow in you.
Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji’s mother’s body was prepared for cremation. In the next world the Divine Judge, Dharam Raj, was reading her life’s accounts. He said, “I can’t send you to hell because you are the mother of a great Sant. But, I can’t send you to God’s Realm, Sach Khand, because you didn’t receive Amrit. So I am going to do one thing for you, your body hasn’t been cremated yet, go back to the world, receive Amrit then return.” The gathered audience was shocked when Mata Ji rose up and told the story of her accounts with Dharam Raj and that he had given her two more days in which to receive Amrit. Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji as part of the Punj Pyare prepared Amrit and about 20,000 people were blessed with the great gift of Amrit.
It is not easy prepare that much Amrit. When Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji used to sing Waheguru Ji’s praises by doing Kirtan, rivers used to stop flowing! Sants like this are few and far between.
20,000 people came, not all of them had the 5K uniform, Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji said receive Amrit and put your 5Ks on as soon as you get home. The 5Ks are tremendously important but the prayer of a Sant is heard by Guru Ji and flexibility is allowed in exceptional circumstances. The Punj Pyare were exhausted, line after line of people received the Amrit-nectar. O Khalsa
Ji, she was the mother of a Sant so she was allowed to come back, but who’s going to let us come back?
