Guruji, as we know him, was born in his mortal avtar as Nirmal Singhji Maharaj in Dugri village in Punjab’s Sangrur district on July 7, 1952. One of the earliest known incidents of Guruji’s penchant for the spiritual was spending time at Sant Sewa Dasji’s Dera in Dugri. Santji was a high-level saint who had renounced worldly life and had many followers. Guruji used to go and sit in the Dera to the chagrin of the family that he wanted him to spend time studying instead of sitting among sages.

At times he would be locked inside a room, but soon they would find it unlocked and Guruji would be found sitting with the sages at the Dera. The sages used to tell people to leave young Guruji alone, as he himself was the “lord of the three loks” and should not be interfered with.

Guruji’s schoolmates remember his famous feat of filling empty inkwells just by touching them with his finger.

Once during an exam, a classmate asked Guruji for some ink for his pen and Guruji simply tapped it with his finger to fill it.

He tried very hard to suppress his supernatural powers in front of others and appear normal. But he often perplexed his teachers by his sudden disappearance from the classroom seat and would come back the next moment! His colleagues remember him knowing all the work questions in advance!

Guruji continued to study just to fulfill the wishes of his father, who, like any normal father, wanted his son to obtain a master’s degree. Guruji finally did a double mastery. His father remembers that his young son often helped him to till the fields and the harvest yield turned out to be many times that of others in the area.

By then, his parents realized that his son was not an ordinary person, but God himself. Even his mother began to touch his feet and call him ‘Guruji’, as everyone now called him.

After a while he left home to fulfill his spiritual journey in this world. He would often appear at the home of one of his acquaintances, stay a few days and then leave, where he ever felt and even disappear for days at a time.

No matter where he stayed, people flocked to him seeking deliverance from disease or whatever other problem they had. Soon, news of his powers spread throughout Punjab and people sought him out no matter where he was.

He stayed intermittently in Jallandhar, Chandigarh, Panchkula, Delhi, Mumbai, etc., and eventually settled in a house, now known as his temple at Defense Colony, Jallandhar. He traveled between Delhi and Jallandhar until 2002, when he finally settled in the Empire Estate house on MG Road in New Delhi, known as Chotta Mandir.

During the 1990s he also performed the Shiv Mandir in the Bhatti Mines area of ​​Chattarpur, known to his devotees as Bada Mandir. Now it houses his samadhi.

He obtained mahasamaadhi in Delhi on May 31, 2007.

Guruji, in his short journey through this land, touched the lives of millions of people, also those who had not even known him. He would read the personality of a devotee by looking at him and knowing everything about his life: past, present and future. He then he would bless the person as he saw fit for them.

Guruji cured thousands of all kinds of diseases. He helped people out of difficulties, giving peace and happiness to all who approached him. He blessed even those who had not even seen him, but his family and friends came to him and asked for his help to overcome his problems.

During his Sangat, as the daily congregations were called, the melodious Gurbaani and Shabad flowed into the hall where the devotees sat on the floor in front of him and meditated. He would bless them, not by touching them, but by altering the path of their lives simply with his spiritual powers! He He often cured, cured, or bestowed on his devotees things they didn’t even think to ask for!

There were times when he would ask a devotee to stand in front of the congregation and relate his divine experience of Guruji’s blessing. This was also a way of instilling faith in the highest in case any devotee had any ‘yes and buts’ in his mind, as he put it! This was called satsang.

Each sangat would end with a generous helping of langar served for all. Guruji’s langar had divine blessings from it and there are countless incidents where devotees are cured just by participating in it. The same is said of the tea that is served as prasad during sangat.

Guruji was Lord Shiva incarnate and had revealed Himself in divine form to many of his devotees. Guruji emitted the divine fragrance of his self which was similar to that of heavenly roses. Even today, long after he is no longer there in his physical form, her fragrance of him feels like proof of his presence largely in spirit!
