Measuring Bhai Sahib
There was a SDO by the name of Bhai Sardara Singh who used to do Sangat of Bhai Sahib jee. The place where he used to do duty, a high avastha Bengali Sadhu used to come. He knew a lot of Gurbani as well and he was in the habit of proving his supremacy and testing other Mahapurakhs. He had heard a lot about Bhai Sahib and one day asked Bhai Sardara Singh to arrange for a meeting with Bhai Sahib. He commented that he wanted to see what spiritual state Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh was in.
Bhai Sardara Singh came to Bhai Sahib and conveyed the Bengali Sadhu’s wish to meet Bhai Sahib. He did not tell Bhai Sahib about the later comment of the Sadhu to test Bhai Sahib. As soon as Bhai Sahib heard about the Sadhu’s request, he shot back, ਅਸੀਂ ਨਹੀਂ ਮਿਲਣਾ ਉਸ ਸਾਧੂ ਨੂੰ। ਉਸ ਨੇ ਰਣਧੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਨੂੰ ਮਿਲਣ ਨਹੀਂ ਆਉਣਾ ਬਲਕਿ ਨਾਪਣ ਆਉਣਾ ਹੈ। (We don’t want to meet that Sadhu. He is not coming to meet Randhir Singh but he is coming to measure him).
Saying this Bhai Sahib refused to meet the Sadhu.
Bhai Sahib stopped a Singh from going to Duty
Bhai Sardara Singh’s officer was very strict about arriving on time to work. Everyday at 9:05 am, the officer used to check the attendance register. One day Bhai Sahib was doing Kirtan and at 8:45 am, as Bhai Sardara Singh was about to get up to leave, Bhai Sahib stopped him from leaving by placing his hand on his thigh. The Singh looked at the time but who could dare to defy Bhai Sahib’s Hukam to not leave. He kept sitting for another half an hour or so and then again tried to get up but Bhai Sahib while doing Kirtan again stopped him from going. Now Bhai Sardara Singh thought that come whatever may come, he was going to obey Bhai Sahib’s Bachan.
Bhai Sahib kept doing Kirtan till 11 am and after the Bhog of Samagam, Bhai Sardara Singh rushed to his workplace expecting severe censure from his officer but upon arriving his supervisor while laughing said that the attendance register was just waiting for him before sending it to the officer in charge for checking. Surprisingly, no one asked anything or said anything to Bhai Sardara Singh. Such were the mystical deeds of Bhai Sahib jee.
