August 15, 1971, few people took notice of a divine light but he was not merely another sant with divine powers. He was on a mission to introduce an ancient path of spirituality. Before he passed away on 11 November 1987, at the age of 34, His mission proved successful. He had founded Sachkhand Nanak Dham and Das Dharam. And saw them grow into a worldwide confederation of more than 200 main spiritual centers.
His Holiness was born on 7th December 1953, to a Brahmin family of Pt. Jagan Nath and Mata Chanan Dei in Batala, Punjab (India). His Holiness Mahraz Darshan Das got enlightened at the age of 17 years on August 15, 1971. From that day onwards, His Holiness’s spiritual duties commenced. When His Holiness held His spiritual discourses, the congregation would be overwhelmed by His immense spiritual aura. He had healing powers and it was soon known that whatever He said came true. He worked with unlimited capacity, used to awake till midnight to quench the spiritual thirst of devotees about God. He held spiritual discourses in hundreds of villages and small towns of Punjab. He extensively traveled on Motorcycle to meet the craving souls. And soon He became famous as “Motorcycle Waala Baba”. Teachings were spread by His Holiness not only to every corner of Punjab but at distant places of India also. To accommodate the masses of the people who came to listen to His discourses, Spiritual Centers were constructed.
ESTABLISHMENT OF SPIRITUAL CENTERS
In 1973, His Holiness established first Darbar Sahib at Batala, Punjab. He encouraged people to recognize their true self and fulfill the worldly duties within the conformity of family life as He had done. He got married to Raj Mata Usha Ji on 4th March 1976 in Kapoorthala, Punjab. He established the second Darbar Sahib, the Loni Darbar on 30th January 1977 in Ghaziabad (U.P.). It was there on 16th February 1980 He founded ‘Das Dharam’, a practical message of Sachkhand Nanak Dham. After establishing Darbars in India, His Holiness turned His attention to other parts of the World. He started visiting England in 1978, awakening the people from the great slumber of forgetfulness, irreligiousness and instilling their hearts with the love of God. It was in September 1982 that His Holiness first opened the gates of the third Darbar in Birmingham, England. From there, the teachings of His Holiness reached England, Canada, America and Europe.
His Holiness left for His heavenly abode at the age of thirty-four on 11th November 1987 while giving the message of world peace and working towards preserving the unity of our Motherland India. The sacrifice of the Supreme Sant brought peace to the world.
His Holiness Mahraz Darshan Das was not a mere Sant, He was God incarnate. He did not simply reform the society, He spiritually charged it with faith, virtue, and integrity. His life and work speak for itself.
