Sant Teja Singh during his sojourn of USA was invited to attend Berlin World Congress of all Religions. Sant ji presented the divine vision and preaching of Guru Nanak Dev. He familiarised the huge gathering from across the globe, about Guru sahib’s message of Universal Brotherhood and the presence of same divine light within every creature of the Creator.
Sant Teja Singh on return to India also participated in the Second Sikh League Congregation to decide political course of action in light of non–cooperation movement initiated by political leaders of India at that time.
Apart from the above Sant Teja Singh represented Sikh community in The Eighth World Peace Conference attended by spiritualists of all faiths across the globe, held in Japan in 1956.
After Sant Attar Singh Mastuane left his mortal frame in year 1927, Sant Teja Singh during the period of 1927-1939, toured the whole of India and propagated Sikh Faith. People in large numbers partook the divine nectar of Guru Gobind Singh and thus got baptized and started treading the spiritual path under the guidance of Eternal Guru Granth Sahib ji.
He spent many years at Paonta sahib and meditated on Divine Name, did sewa in building Gurdwaras and also wrote the Biography of Sant Attar Singh Ji. In the year 1945, he visited west Punjab areas (now in Pakistan) and held religious congregations and gave spiritual discourses. In the year 1949, he addressed the students of Khalsa College Amritsar and motivated them to tread on the spiritual path while taking worldly education. The students after listening to the sermons and lecture of Harvard educated Sant Teja Singh and seeing his simple outlook; were extremely motivated. Here he also invited students to Paonta Sahib during study vacations to have more insight of spiritual way life and the path shown by Guru Nanak Dev ji Maharaj. Many students pledged to have his association and committed to visit to Paonta Sahib during vacations.
Out of the prominent students who pledged allegiance to Sant Teja Singh, only two students namely Iqbal Singh and Bhai Gurbux Singh went to Paonta Sahib to have spiritual association with Sant Teja Singh.
In the period of 1952-53, Sant Teja Singh propagated Sikh faith in the places/countries like Bangkok, Malaysia, Singapore, East Africa, Japan along with his disciple Baba Gyan Singh. In African countries, he also visited Uganda and advised the local Indians to be more affectionate to the local natives and alongside to prepare for moving to other countries also. The advice came in handy after a few years later since due to civil war and on orders of Idi Amin, the then Ugandan dictator, all the Indians were flushed out of that country.
Again in 1955-56, Sant Teja Singh visited Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, USA and Canada.
