Types of Bhagats
One is Prem Bhagat
And one like Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj, is he who, having merged with the Lord through Prema Bhagti becomes Maryada Himself. Having struck the climax of spiritual glory through Prema Bhagti, one starts blazing like a spiritual sun, a Sun of Maryada himself.
Baba Nand Singh Ji's intense divine love of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib and Sri Guru Granth Sahib from His very infancy, acquired the eternal glow of a unique Maryada of adoration, love, devotion, worship and total surrender at the lotus feet of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. From this unique Maryada radiates the flavour and fragrance of Prema Bhagti of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj. One starts basking in the grace of Mahan Babaji and the Supreme Lord Guru Nanak.
Holy Maryada fashioned and designed by Mahan Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj is no empty ritual. It transports one into the living presence of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib. Every moment, every breath spent in the service, adoration, devotion and worship of Sri Guru Granth Sahib is most rewarding. My humble experience is that the blessed time so spent does not remain unresponded and unacknowledged for long by our beloved Lord Guru Nanak.
Prem De Naal Sachi Bhagti Shuroo Hundi Hai
Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj once explained that there are nine types of bhakti such as hearing the glories of the divine, singing His glories (Kirtan), sewa (service), Nam Simran and so on, but every type of bhakti blossoms to perfection only if done and performed with total love. Without true Prema Bhagti, without intense devotion and yearning, it is difficult to attain God.
