The Great Master Maharaj Baba Sawan Singh Ji imparted spiritual
training to so many of his disciples making them the complete Saints during his
ministry of 45 years w.e.f. 1903 to 1948. One of his great disciples was Baba Channan
Singh Ji who was born on the day of Ram Navami in the month of October 1917 in
village Saidpur situated at the distance of just 18 k.m. from Dera Beas. Baba Ji
was born in a middle class peasant family. His fathers S. Buta Singh & Mother Mata
Saintee were also the disciples of the great master Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji who
used to visit the village Saidpur every month and delivered holy lecture (Satsang)
to the sangat who had a lot of love and affection for their Guru.
In the age of 11 years a thirst of love broke out in the heart of Baba Channan Singh Ji who bowed down his head in the feet of Great Guru Baba Sawan Singh Ji & begged for showing him the path of soul purification to attain salvation and eternal peace. There only Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji gave the Guru - Mantra i.e. Nam-Daan to Baba Channan Singh Ji. After seeking Nam Daan Baba Ji meditated so vigorously and devoted so deeply in the love of Guru that in a very Small Period he became the master of senses and thereafter left for Dera Beas in the services of his great Guru who advised him to go to Sirsa Sikanderpur for doing the sewa in the Agriculture field which are the property of Dera Beas. Baba Ji remained in Sirsa Sikanderpur for 8 years and worked so sincerely and hard that he won the heart of his Guru Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji.
