About Sant Sunder Singh Alibegh
A Gurmukh narrated a Saakhi of Sant Sunder Singh jee. Sant jee was a very Chardi Kala Gurmukh Sant who spent most of his time on Naam and Gurbani. In his Dera, as per Maryada of Siri Guru Angad Dev jee’s Langar, when Kheer was served, Gheo too was served along with it. Gheo was abundant in the dera.
One day a non-Sikh Sadhu came to the Langar and took out his own Baata and asked to be served Gheo. The Sewadaar poured some Gheo in his Baata but the Baata did not fill and the Sadhu insisted that his Baata be filled. The Sewadar poured the whole bucket into it but it still did not fill. He brought the second bucket and that too could not fill the Sadhu’s bucket. Now the Sewadaar figured out that this Sadhu was using some Ridhi Sidhi to embarrass Gursikhs by this trick.
The Sewadaar went to Sant jee who was sitting in his Bhora (underground Bhagti cell) and told him about the Sadhu and his magical Baata. Sant jee realized what the Sadhu was trying to do. He asked the Sewadaar to bring some gheo. He recited some Gurbani Shabad or perhaps Gurmantr (what else could a Gursikh recite) and asked the Sewadar to now go and pour gheo in the Sadhu’s baata. As soon as the Sewadaar poured just a spoonful of gheo, the Sadhu’s baata overflowed with a lot of gheo. The Sadhu left in embarrassment.
The moral of this Saakhi is that nothing is higher than Gurmat and Naam Gurbani are supreme in this world.
