“I am forever grateful to the great Saint, epitome of selfless service, Sant Baba Thakur Singh Ji, who encouraged me to write this biography. As Likhari of the Jatha I knew all the names of the Jatha Singhs, the places Sant Ji visited, and also wrote Sant Ji’s diary. Sant Baba Thakur Singh Ji said to me that being the Likhari (writer) of Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji, that I should definitely write this Jivani (biography). Finally, on 7th September 2002 in the UK, Baba Ji themselves along with four other Singhs in the form of Panj Piare, did ardaas in front of Guru Maharaj to write this Jivani. The Sri Mukhvaak that came at that time was:
‘Jeh Jeh Pekho Teh Hajoor Door Kathu Na Jaaee ||’ – Ang 677
Wherever I look, there I see him present, he is never far away.
I started writing on 16th September 2002, on the day of Assu Sangraand, which has been completed with the kirpa of Guru Ji and published by Damdami Taksal Jatha Bhindran (Mehta) via Baba Ji. For this reason, I am thankful to Baba Ji and the Singhs of Gurdwara Gurdarshan Parkash.”
