Commemorating Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj on His 126th Incarnation Day ‘Anami-e-Sai’ Diwas
Mahak Aa Rahi Hai, Fizan Bhi Gaa Rahi Hai..
Nache Dharti, Naache Ambar, Rabbi Jot Pargata Rahi Hai..
(The fragrance of spirituality is wafting, the environs are singing the songs of God, the heavens, the skies and the earth dance in celebration, as the divine light incarnates.)
Hordes dancing in joy, their faces radiating happiness, crowds immersed in selfless love for God, dancing without a pause, all that goes beyond of the worldly pleasures. This is a common scene for Dera Sacha Sauda followers, when ocean of humanity gathers to celebrate the incarnation of the Epochal Saint Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj on ‘Anami-e-Sai Diwas’, A day when the entire humanity comes together to thank the God for this supreme benevolence.
This is something unimaginable for those who are drenched in the materialistic spheres of life, but for when true lovers of the God celebrate the incarnation day of their beloved Master, the seven realms dance in sync with them, it seems. And why shouldn’t they celebrate it. It was the coming of a Saint who brought the ocean of divine grace upon this planet.
The True Master or Satguru incarnates to show people the right path, the path of self realization, the path to quitting drugs, alcohol and immorality, the path to social reform and humanitarianism. A True Master never seeks money to teach meditation or for God realization.
All those, whom we worship today, incarnated on this earth in human embodiment to shower the divine grace and to salvage the caged souls. It is the fragrance of their thoughts and nobility of their deeds that has inscribed their names in history.
Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji never called himself anything beyond a humble fakir and a teacher of free meditation, and transformed the lives of millions by founding Dera Sacha Sauda. He enlightened the path to ‘Anami-The Supreme Abode’, thus, we celebrate his incarnation day as ‘Anami-e-Sai Diwas’.
True Saints Incarnate to liberate the caged souls
A soul reincarnates again and again, until it becomes perfect to unite its creator. The body is a prison and the soul is a prisoner. Since time immemorial, souls detached from the supreme abode are wandering helpless. Souls cry to get liberation from this endless loop of births and deaths.
To be born human is considered a great privilege because unlike other creatures, a human can walk the path of Dharma and become liberated from the cycle of rebirth. But for that, he must know the right path to walk. History has witnessed many such epoch-making events, when the Saints and Messengers marched this planet to claim the God’s souls. Shah Mastana Ji is one such Saint who enlightened the right path and initiated a university of true spirituality where no fee would be charged for teaching God’s words or the ultimate meditation for God realization.
Bhool Gaye Ho Tum Hamein, Hum Na Tumhe Bhulayenge..
Chahe Kuch Bhi Karein Yatan, Vapis Tumhe Le Jayenge…
According to this couplet written by His Holiness Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj, a man might forget the benevolence of the almighty but he will never forget him. Whatever efforts does it take to bring him back, he certainly does.
That’s why he sends his Messengers to show them the right path. A True Master, Peer, Fakir prays for the welfare of the whole universe and peace of the whole of the creatures. He finds happiness if his wards feel happy. Therefore, the True Saints patronize selfless humanitarian endeavors for the upliftment of the society. Their sole motive is to reform the society, radiating love among them, and to connect the creatures with the God’s name – Gurumantra.
One of the highest blessings that you can receive from God while living on earth is meeting a True Spiritual Master. When souls detached from the God cry to get rid of the Karmic cycle, almighty sends his Messengers to liberate these souls from the cycle of rebirth.
Saints are great benefactors. Their Philanthropy is unparalleled. In the worldly affairs, if somebody helps someone he keeps boasting of his charity throughout his lifetime. This is a big difference between the Saints and man.
Let us assume that a man offers good food, good clothes, good cold drinks to a prisoner, it might make him happy for a while but it doesn’t free him. While another man comes forward to liberate him from the jail. Whose benevolence is higher?
The True Masters do the same, they impart the true wisdom and enlighten the path of God that liberates the souls from this materialistic world and help them attain salvation. Such are the deeds of benevolence of the True Masters towards the whole world and they keep on doing such charity work, no matter what.
But this is the duty of human being to be thankful towards his Satguru who has granted life to him, no gift can be bigger than this. All scriptures say equivocally that one should always remember his Guru, and should have a firm belief in him rising above from all the worldly desires. If one does it without asking for any favor, the Satguru grants countless bounties in his bag, without being asked for.
Jab Sant Jagat Mein Aate Hain, Woh Apna Bhed Chhupate Hain..
Nijghar Ki Baat Batate Hain, Vishvas Kare Le Jate Hain…
(When True Master marches on the earth to liberate the caged souls from the cycles of rebirths, He incarnates in human embodiments, lives amongst human like them, and enlightens the path to supreme abode; only those who believe attain salvation.)
Divine Life of Shah Mastana Ji at a Glance:
Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji was born on Kartik Poornima in 1891 in village Kotra, tehsil Gandhey, district Kalait of Balochistan, in the family of Respected Sh. Pillamal and Mata Tulsa Bai Ji. He belonged to a Kshatriya family. Earlier, He was named as Shri Khemamal Ji. It was Huzoor Baba Sawan Singh, who christened Him with the name of ‘Shah Mastana Ji’.
From early childhood, Shah Mastana Ji had a great inclination towards spirituality; that is why at the young age of 13-14 Years he left home in the search for a True Master. In his search Mastana Ji met almost every famous saint of northern India but couldn’t find anyone perfect to be a Master.
After searching for almost nine years Mastana Ji met His Holiness Huzoor Baba Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj and got initiated by Him. As luck would have it, his thirst for the Divine Lord was fulfilled and what followed next was the development of true faith in His Satguru.
As His inner self was clean and His love for Baba Sawan Singh Ji was selfless, His honest and profound devotion towards his Satguru earned Him a special place in the vision of Baba Sawan Singh Ji. Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji used to dance very often in love for His Satguru, singing the songs of praise for Baba Sawan Singh Ji and addressing His Satguru with a unique salutation, “Dhan Dhan Sai Sawan Shah Ji Nirankar, Tera Hi Aasra.”
The jealous abound even around perfect Saints. Some found this an opportunity to complain about Shah Mastana Ji to Sawan Shah Ji, that He was distorting the basic salutation of Beas Ashram. Baba Sawan Singh Ji immediately asked for Maharaj Mastana Ji to be summoned, much to the delights of louts.
Baba Sawan Singh Ji asked, “Don’t do this, why are you eulogising me in your salutation.” Shah Mastana Ji answered in all humility, “Sai Ji, I am forever in your loving shade, for me you are the manifestation of the omnipresent unseen Almighty, you are the omniscient God. I get intoxicated by your love, therefore I start dancing.” Baba Sawan Singh Ji spoke in an affectionate voice and said, “Still, you must change your salutation to Dhan Dhan Satguru Tera Hi Aasra. You have to go to the lands of Bagar and preach God’s words and spread God’s name.”
Initially Beparwah Ji extremely reluctant and submitted, “This is very difficult. I do not wish to leave you. I will go only if this is your commandment.” The amazing boon of Shah Mastana Ji’s meditation granting deliverance from transmigration or salvation within this lifetime was granted by Baba Sawan Singh Ji at that time. And the Holy Slogan Dhan Dhan Satguru Tera Hi Aasra was also endorsed by Baba Sawan Singh Ji saying that if the Holy Slogan was spoken with devotion, it would have power in both worlds.
Shah Mastana Ji achieved something impossible in this Kaliyuga, by asking Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji, for bestowing the ultimate gifts. “Those initiated by you, Shah Mastana, dwell with one foot on this planet and another foot in divinity’s ultimate abode-the realm of Sachkhand,” His Holiness Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj had said.
“Those initiated by you, if they remain true to the cardinal principles, do a little meditation and humanitarian service, shall never be short of anything,” the divine Master had ordained. And this was how the Dera Sacha Sauda was founded in Sirsa in 1948.
Shah Mastana Ji taught the method of meditation (Naam-Shabd, Guru-Mantra) to thousands of people over a period of twelve years. After performing His assigned duties, Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj handed over his reign to His successor Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj on February 28, 1960. And He Himself left for his eternal abode on April 18, 1960.
Shah Mastana Ji in his last Satsang (spiritual discourse) of January 1960 had repeatedly prophesied, “Exactly after seven years, I will come again in the form of the third body (the Third Master)” Exactly after 7 years in 1967, on 15th August, He re-incarnated as Third Master, Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan. Since then, the following of Dera Sacha Sauda and its preachings has grown manifolds.
From a broad humanitarian perspective no Saint, Seer, King or social worker in the history of mankind has undertaken the campaigns that Dera Sacha Sauda has undertaken in guidance of Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan.
Badaldi Nahi May Haqiqi, Paimana Badalda Rehnda, Surahi Badaldi Rehndi….
The nectar of Godly love and divinity never changes its taste, just the glass and the container changes.
How A True Saint in India is Cherishing Humanity With His Magnanimous Endeavors
‘World Kindness Day’ is celebrated worldwide every year on 13th November, to celebrate those good deeds that make someone else’s life little bit easier, making their day brighter, making their load lighter – even the smallest things for humanity, like holding the door open for someone, or smiling at someone on the street, or bringing meal to work for colleagues.
People around the world were encouraged to take a moment and pay it forward, however big or small their act may be. The internet goes gaga with beautiful stories and ideas of kindness that people share on Twitter.
The great thing about spreading kindness is that it doesn’t only benefit the recipient. It can also have unexpected effects for the giver. And here in India, we have a Saint who has redefined the meaning of philanthropy with his deep-dyed gumption to transform the society.
Unlike other religious Gurus and Saints and Spiritual Masters, this Guru is not asking his followers to follow a certain religion, he is not asking them to fight on the ideological differences, he is not dividing them on the grounds of beliefs, but he is uniting them under one banner, Humanity.
How A True Saint in India is Cherishing Humanity With His Magnanimous Endeavours
Who is True Saint: I wouldn’t go in the deep roots of spiritualism and ethereal definitions of a Saint or Guru or all that rhetorical discourse, rather here I emphasize on finding a True Master who can enlighten the way of living in this materialistic world.
Saint Dr Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan, the present master of a socio-spiritual organization Dera Sacha Sauda, has ushered an ocean of magnanimity with his unique style of God’s realization. He doesn’t ask for any fee from those millions who come to learn meditation from him, but he asks them to serve the Humanity.
Followers inspired by his words, celebrate every day rendering selfless deeds towards underprivileged sections of the world. Providing free education to poor children, treatment of destitute patients, building shelters for helpless and disabled people, managing food banks and cloth banks are a few from the list of 133 Humanitarian Programmes being run by Dera Sacha Sauda in the guidance of Saint Dr MSG Insan. Rather than wasting their hard-earned money on pompous shows, these devotees celebrate the festivals spending it on charitable deeds.
I don’t intend to offend anyone for his religious beliefs, but honestly speaking I have never seen God/Allah/Ram helping anyone but history has witnessed brutal massacres of millions in the name of God!
Ok, I believe that there is something or someone Supreme that is driving this universe, but Gods from the heavens will not descend on the earth to help the needy, only a human can help the unfortunate, deprived and underprivileged fellow being. We have to understand that humanity is above all the religions and beliefs.
In the times of hatred, intolerance and violence Saint Ram Rahim and his ideology invokes the compassion, empathy and the values of ‘Vasudhaiv-Kutumbkam’. When everyone is consumed in their vested interests, he takes us to a parallel world of selflessness where Humanity is supreme.
One day to celebrate kindness, is certainly a good idea. But if we perceive this idea from a larger perspective, with a larger goal for the larger good of the planet, it seems one day in not just enough. The idea of changing the world can be daunting. But IF every person did just one thing to make the world a better place today, billions of acts of kindness, social responsibility and generosity would take place, and wouldn’t that alone change the face of this planet?

Early childhood of Saint Dr MSG Insan: When divinity incarnates, the event is certainly associated with celestial happenings. The day Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan was born on 15th August, 1967, at Sri Gurusarmodia in the household of the village squire, Late Bapu Maghar Singh Ji and Mata Naseeb Kaur Ji.
A Saint, Triveni Das revered by the entire village came to congratulate them. In strict confidence, he shared with Saint MSG Insan’s father, “This child is not ordinary, but an embodiment of Almighty. He shall stay with you for 23 years and then join the power that has sent him.”
Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan’s entire childhood is replete with such examples. He surprised the whole village when he started driving a tractor at the age of 7 years. His childhood friends recall that he could perform inexplicable feats of strength like knocking a brick out from the wall by hurling the shotput! Or breaking the net cord while smashing a volleyball!
On another occasion, when an erudite Brahmin asked Saint Triveni Das as to who could change the epoch of evil aka Kaliyuga into the epoch of truth aka Satyuga, Saint Triveni Das promptly pointed towards Saint MSG and said, “This child is going to transform the epoch.”
Innumerable such incidents that clearly pointed to Dr MSG’s divinity took place, while he was in his native village, Sri Gurusar Modia. At a very young age of just seven, he was initiated into meditation by Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj at Dera Sacha Sauda, Sirsa.
Saint MSG’s Family and Household: Saint Dr MSG Insan comes a family of landlords, who owned large tracts of land and worldly wealth, yet, steeped in utmost humility. His father, Bapu Maghar Singh Ji was the village squire. In fact, the village itself was established by Saint Ram Rahim’s great grandfather. Yet, when the call came from Shah Satnam Ji Maharaj, for him to move to the Ashram, he immediately renounced family ties and reached Sirsa.
Children: Saint MSG Insan’s children were young, the youngest daughter, Amarpreet was an infant. The two elder children, son Jasmeet and daughter Charanpreet were both in primary school at that time. Saint Dr MSG was merely 23 years old. The prospect of leaving ones ageing parents and little children would be impossible for any ordinary mortal, but he had vowed every breath to the commandments of the True Master.
Succession Ceremony: In a formal ceremony on 23rd September, 1990, Param Pita Shah Satnam SinghJi Maharaj bestowed his spiritual wealth to Saint Dr MSG Insan and handed him the true torch of spirituality. For the next year and half, Shah Satnam Ji Maharaj, made him preside over the spiritual congregations as his equal and likeness. On the other hand, Saint Dr MSG was a picture of absolute humility and devotion who followed every divine commandment with folded hands.
Hum The, Hum Hain.. Aur Hum Hi Rahenge
In the entire history of spirituality, True Masters have announced their successors as the next spiritual master, Shah Satnam Ji Maharaj made a radical departure by saying, “It was Us (as the first Master), It is Us (as the second), and we shall remain ! (as the third)
Dera Sacha Sauda Turns Into A College Of True Spirituality In Saint Dr MSG Insan’s Reign
After Saint Dr MSG Insan ascended the Holy seat, the Dera Sacha Sauda has grown several folds. The following has now swelled to over 50 million and growing. He has worked tirelessly to spread the divine message and message of Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj and Param Pita Shah Satnam SinghJi Maharaj, throughout the world.
The endeavors of humanitarianism started by Saint Dr MSG Insan have reached a whopping 131 campaigns. All these programs are run simultaneously for the benefit of mankind.
Stellar Talents of Saint Dr Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan
Saint Dr MSG Insan’s creative side, the results of his peerless talents are also making waves, all over the world. Whether it is his music albums, his movies or technical feats, the world is applauding his creative genius.
The spate of world records in humanitarian pursuits, scores of remarkable initiatives and the rapid growth of institutions blessed by Saint Dr MSG Insan has left everyone astounded.
Saint Dr MSG Insan remains committed to earning his bread by dint of hard work. Not an iota of money is sought in the name of God. He excels in every role; a singer, composer, agriculturist, innovator, engineer, designer, littérateur, sportsperson, sports coach, architect, athlete, humanitarian social reformer, physician – the list is endless. Whatever he sets out to do, he shows his unmistakable Mastery.
Allegations and accusations: As the Ashram has grown into a force for social good, through introspection and collective action in everyone’s interest, certain vested interests have reared their ugly heads and fabricated malicious allegations. It is largely the people who seek to divide Indian society in the name of caste or religion plus the ones who profit from the sale of intoxicants and narcotics. But Saint Dr MSG Insan has remained stoic and steadfast in expanding the spiritual and humanitarian programs.
The fact that Saint Dr MSG Insan has concentrated on newer drives for social emancipation with zeal is a living proof of his greatness. The fact that Saint Dr MSG Insan has stuck to his agenda of communicating the truth and seeking betterment of society, despite several attempts upon his life, is an evidence of his Supreme Divinity.
The miracles of his grace, i.e. millions of cases in incurable diseases getting healed with meditation are an irrevocable proof that the True Master is here, upon this planet full of suffering and delusion.

Important News About Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan & Dera Sacha Sauda : 2016-2018 Timeline
Baba Gurmeet Ram Rahim Donates 40 Lakh For Skin Bank
(Sirsa – 10 April 2016):
Burns patients and acid-attack victims can now pin their hopes on a skin bank being set up in Sirsa, the first of its kind in Haryana. Saint Ram Rahim, will be using the earnings of ‘MSG 2: The Messenger’ for the establishment of a skin bank. Today, during a spiritual congregation held at Shah Satnam Ji Dham, Dera Sacha Sauda, he handed over the cheque of Rs 40 Lakh to the doctors.
“We are so happy to be a part of such a generous project endeavored by Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan. After transforming the lives of thousands with the inspirational messages clutched in entertainment, Guruji is using its proceedings also for a noble cause,” says Ajay Dhamija, spokesman to the Hakikat Entertainment Pvt Ltd. In the absence of a skin bank, doctors use the healthy skin of a burns patient, graft it and re-use it in plastic surgery. This leads to delay in recovery.
The skin bank will prove a boon for patients as there is no blood group matching required in skin grafting and this skin bank will not only serve the cause for acid-attack and burns patients but will also facilitate state-of-the-art treatments for the skin diseases. It is notable that Saint Ram Rahim has donated the earnings of previous movie too for research on Thalassemia and HIV patients.

Doctor vs Engineer – What Will Be A Better Career Option For You – Ask Yourself!
After 10th Class Exam, the biggest transition of the life takes place in every student’s life, a student has to decide his career path after high school. While hanging between the choices whether to go for arts, commerce or science after 10th, the most challenging task is to pick one among stream – medical vs non-medical.
It all starts in Class 11. As soon as you pass your high school, you start questioning yourself what to do after 10th class and start hovering around the list of careen options after 10th in arts, commerce and science stream. But if you are amongst the top 10 students of your class, half the people in your little world would advise you to become a doctor or an engineer.
Gender biases the inescapable ingredient of Indian society gives a shot here too. One of the greatest Bollywood flick 3 Idiots was not far off that Indian parents think:
Ladka hua to Engineer, Ladki hui to Doctor
If it is a boy, he will become an engineer. If it is a daughter, she will turn out to be a doctor.
These ideals do not work in real lives.
Your choice of career after 10th depends on a number of factors:
- Your passion and motives,
- Your capacity to study,
- Access to good study resources,
- Affordability of the program you choose,
- Importance of money in your life,
- How long can you wait until you earn?
- Your mobility (Are you an only child who can’t leave your parents and shift to another place? Are you not allowed to move out of town to pursue your study or career interests for any reason?), and
- Your board exam marks (which might limit your options when it comes to taking Science subjects).
Here is a step-by-step guide on deciding whether you should become an Engineer or a Doctor:
Do you like Math or hate it?
It is the first indication of what your career choice should be. If you ‘like’ Math and calculation and solving new problems, engineering might be the profession for you. If you ‘hate’ Math and waiting to get rid of it, medical studies might be your best bet.
This approach might be simple but may not be accurate. Remember, aversion of a subject lasts only as long as you don’t study it. So, if you don’t like Math, you can still be an engineer if you work hard. Yet, in most cases, it works.
We study Math right from the kindergarten classes. If you have not developed an interest in the subject, you might want to drop it as your core subject in Class 11 and focus on subjects where you can use your natural instincts better.

Medical preparation requires you to solve Physics and Chemistry numerical – so you’ll still need a bit of Math, but it will not be as difficult as ones you’ll have to tackle in all three of your subjects (Physics, Chemistry, and Math) as an engineering aspirant.
Does Rote Learning come naturally to you?
Engineers require higher critical thinking, logic, reasoning, and problem-solving abilities than doctors. On the other side, doctors need to remember facts and figures, and information (a lot of information actually) about human or animal bodies, diseases – their symptoms, causes, and treatments, and a lot of other stuff. It means that doctors need to have the ability to a lot of reading, and commit the information to their memories for later use.
NEET coaching expert Nishtha Gupta shares, “In Botany and Zoology, the ability to rote learn something is a must. Physics and Chemistry are reasoning-based. You can just learn formulas in these subjects, and understand the application of concepts. In Botany and Zoology, it is all about learning. I recommend my students to use flashcards or quiz-based educational apps to be able to learn them better.”
It is not all about entrance exam preparation. You’ll need the same abilities once you get admission in B.Tech or MBBS programs – and even to your career lives.
If you are not good at problem-solving or coming up with innovative solutions, you’ll never be able to succeed as an engineer. As a doctor, you’ll never want for work, but you’ll be able to reach the top ranks only if you remain updated about the latest medical trends and research.
Remember, participating in the national and international conferences as a speaker or as an attendee is one of the essential aspects of carving out a big name as a doctor.
Do you prefer Direct Questions?
All the coaching providers, who provide both IIT JEE coaching as well as medical coaching programs, agree that the difficulty level of engineering exam question papers is higher than that of medical entrance exams – including the highly competitive AIIMS exam.
In IIT JEE, the questions asked are conceptual and tricky while in NEET, questions are direct and much simple. Many questions asked in the NEET exam are picked directly from the NCERT books of Class 11 and Class 12.
The trend continues throughout your lives as a doctor or an engineer.
A doctor is successful if he or she can correlate the symptoms of a patient and diagnose the disease correctly – and can prescribe the best possible treatment in his or her case. An engineer is successful when he or she can identify the problems and be able to provide solutions to them.
At the topmost levels, a doctor’s work is cut out while an engineer has to find his or her own way.
Do you want Respect or Money?
The long hours you spend slogging during your NEET preparation seems worth it when you get to wear the white coat and the stethoscope – and all the patients refer to you as ‘Doctor Sa’ab’ or ‘Sir’. With time, your respectability soars – as you carve out a name in your respective field.
If you are good at your job, are patient with your patients and their caretakers, and have good communication skills, you are treated as ‘God’ by everyone you know. You are in demand during an emergency situation – and all your relatives and friends cherish your presence for the respectability associated with your profession.
Engineers have to wait for that kind of respect until they prove themselves in their respective workplace. However, if you are from one of the top engineering institutes in India, you might be earning more than a doctor fresh out of college. Every year, we hear news of engineers who get a salary package of over-a-crore at campus placements.
You must remember that the number of such high-salary-package-getters is minuscule and the income disparity between engineers and doctors reduces with time. In fact, if you have a clinic or a hospital of your own, you might be earning more than many top-ranked engineers around you.
Medical vs Non Medical, What Will Be Best For You? Ask Yourself:
Ask yourself these questions to access whether you’ll perform better as an engineer or a doctor. Whatever you choose, always make an informed decision. Do not give in to the peer pressure or the parental pressure. To be happy, you must learn to make your own choices, and then find ways to achieve your goals.
