Ajaib Singh

Ajaib Singh, also known to his disciples as 'Sant Ji' was born on September 11, 1926, in Maina, Bhatinda district, Punjab, India.

During his satsangs, Ajaib Singh would often talk about his youth - his study and search for the God of the guru granth sahib, his life with his adopted parents, and the time he spent with his first mahatma, Bishan Das.

While serving in the Indian army, Sant would later meet with Baba Sawan Singh and describe the impact that Hazur Maharaj Baba Sawan Singh had on his life, referring to Baba Sawan Singh as "the most beautiful man I have ever met." As conferred by Baba Sawan Singh, Sant would also discuss his long awaited and long anticipated meeting with his second Master, Kirpal Singh, and the orders he received regarding leaving his worldly possessions behind (including a large ashram) and being directed to meditate in an underground room.

In addition to the publication of many of his talks and question/answer sessions by Sant Bani Press, Sant was responsible for the 1982 English language translation of Kabir Sahib's story of creation, entitled The Anurag Sagar or Ocean of Love.

He oversaw the extensive footnoting of the Sagar, and would occasionally joke about how he, an unlearned farmer, had managed to complete this work.

A disciple claimed that during a satsang at SKA, India, February 1997, Ajaib Singh told a group of his western followers, "I will not be seeing any of you anymore".

The disciple, Bar Bar Baba Ji, later discussed Ajaib's comments with another attendee, Jim Crawford, organizer of the then upcoming Abbotsford retreat in Canada, and suggested that he obtain cancellation insurance.

Sant is widely considered the 18th Guru in the main line of Saints and Mahatmas dating back to Kabir, a practice referred to as Sant Mat or Surat Shabd Yoga.

This lineage also includes such spiritual luminaries as Guru Nanak, Guru Arjan Dev and Shiv Dayal Singh.Over a 22 year period, he initiated approximately 33,000 disciples, travelling extensively across North and South America, Europe, Africa and India.

Ajaib Singh died on July 6, 1997.
