Satguru Ram Singh Ji



Satguru Ram Singh ji Maharaj is one of the greatest social reformers, a spiritual teacher and national leader. He came in this world with a set mission of giving peace and solace to this world . Without him not only the history of Vishwakarmas is incomplete, but also the history of mankind is incomplete. He is a saint of very high order , a spiritual guide who showed the way of peace in the groping humanity. Satguru Ram Singh Ji was born at Bhaini Sahib, asmall village in District Ludhiana (Punjab) in 1815.


Sardar Jassa Singh was his father, who was carpenter by profession and Ramgarhia (Matharoo) by cast. Satguru Ji got his early education at Bhaini Sahib in Gurmukhi and Gurbani. He joined Khalsa army and served for several years under Kanwar Naunihal Singh (grandson of maharaja Ranjit Singh Ji). While serving in the army he came across Satguru Balak Singh Ji. The word and teaching of Satguru Balak Singh Ji sank deep into his mind. One day Satguru Ram Singh Ji stop his job and started his spiritual life.


The year 1857 was not an ordinary year. It was the year of revolt, struggle and war. Satguru Ram Singh Ji was not a silent spectator. He formed “Sant Khalsa”, which later developed into great historical Kuka movements. He therefore issued a special code of discipline for his followers. All followers of satguru are distinguished by the white dress, straight and pressed turban and a woolen rosary. Satguru Ram Singh Ji Maharaj preached the message far and wide which exercised a check on the western impact.


In 1872 after the MALERKOTLA incident whole Kuka movement was outlawed, Bhaini sahib was surrounded. Satguru Ji was taken into custody and was deported first to Alahabad and then to Burma, where he remained as state prisoner Even in exile Satguru ji continued to have contact with his followers and exchange messages fore-casting the “British Raj was now on its last legs”.
