The enlightened luminary lead his life at an immeasurably higher pedestal than those of ordinary mortals. The fact that the life story of this sages has been written by none other than Sant Teja Singh himself, makes them all the more credible.
He resigned from the Army to fulfill his burning desire of immersing in the Divine Realm. He started his march on
foot from Dera Ghazi Khan (now in Pakistan) to Hazur Sahib in Maharashtra. In a deeply devotional state and immersed in the Divine Name, he would march for hundreds of miles at a stretch reciting ‘Wahe’ while putting the left foot forward and ‘Guru’ when the right one went forward. At Hazur Sahib, Sant Ji mediated continuously for two years on the banks of the river Godavari. He was so much engrossed in meditation on the Divine Name that he spent weeks together without food. He neither longed nor went anywhere for food but would take it whenever anybody offered him. Otherwise, he used to live only on the water of the river Godavari.
From Hazur Sahib, he walked across the country to Haridwar and Rishikesh (Uttarakhand) passing through thick forests. In the forests of Rishikesh, he remained engrossed in Samadhi (trance) near a fountain, where wild animals would often come for water at night. Unmindful of this, he remained immersed in deep meditation here for almost a year.
While at Rishikesh, he expressed his desire of meditating constantly at a calm, quiet and secluded place to Sant Ram Singh of Thamali, who persuaded him to accompany him to hermitages in Sialkot and Rawalpindi regions (now in Pakistan) for the holy pursuit. Both walked to Sialkot through Sirmore (in Himachal Pradesh). They followed the route of Rishikesh, Dehradun, Paonta Sahib, Baru, Kumharhatti, Anandpur Sahib, Una, Gurdaspur and to Sialkot. They paid obeisance at the holy shrines of Paonta Sahib and Anandpur Sahib and then meditated at the hitherto unrevealed Baru.
