Baba Lakhbir Singh Ji
Although originally belonging to Punjab, the present chairman of the Trust (VGRMCT) Ratwara Sahib, Baba Lakhbir Singh Ji comes of a family settled in U.P. which had fallen en bloc under the charismatic spiritual charm of His Holiness Sant Baba Waryam Singh Ji when he preached there till 1978. It is a kind of paradox that whereas Baba Waryam Singh had gone to U.P. (Uttar Pradesh) from Punjab under the instructions of Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj of Rara Sahib, he was called from U.P. to Punjab by Baba Waryam Singh Ji to accelerate the pace of spreading the teachings of Sikhism. Baba Lakhbir Singh Ji had come under his magic spell in the late sixties as an youth and was asked to prefix his devotional singing of a beginner before the commencement of the proper discourse of Sant Baba Waryam Singh Ji or to suffix it at the conclusion. Two of his younger brothers are pious disciples of the Gurus who undoubtedly have attained to sainthood as is clear from the discourses delivered by them at great religious diwans.
As spelled out and desired by Sant Baba Waryam Singh Ji, the mantle of spiritual leadership was assumed by Baba Lakhbir Singh Ji in 2001 at the conclusion of the Bhog ceremony of His Holiness Baba Waryam Singh ji Maharaj.
Tall, well-built & reminiscent of the older generation of Sikh warriors, he is an image of piety, saintliness and brotherliness. He has never been in anger, never used harsh word, always seen in cool temper with an imperceptible smile and a glow on his face. He is benevolent kind and loving with the booming reverberating voice of a heavenly gifted singer which pierces through the hearts of the listeners and resounds in them for days together.
He never seems to boss on others. He assigns duties not like a hard taskmaster but like an elder brother who guides and exhorts you all the time with don’t-worry-I’m-always-with-you assurance in his words.
His discourses in the true tradition of the past are scholarly, learned and informed by his own personal experience, understanding and knowledge. His discourses give a delight, rasa, and are full of bliss and joy which can be obtained only by attending them. In his discourses he truly propagates the teachings of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. May the notes of his harmonium continue to mingle melodies in the atmosphere to purify it and make it holy forever and for all! He has truly filled the gap of spirituality, created by passing away of Sant Maharaj Baba Waryam Singh Ji. His spiritual discourses in diwans at Ratwara Sahib and other cities of Punjab, beyond and abroad are so inspiring that these seem to be true replica of his mentor. Sant Maharaj Ji has chiselled him so well in all the fields - spiritual, social, developmental etc. so that the responsibility of running the Trust could be safely transferred in the experienced hands of Baba Lakhbir Singh Ji. And he has proved it by his intelligence, cooperative nature and spiritual blessings of Satguru and Sant Waryam Singh Ji. As a result of which all the institutions of the Trust (VGRMCT) are not only running up smoothly but making tremendous progress. He is getting full cooperation and dedicated services of all viz. Shriman Karnail Singh Ji, Baba Harpal Singh Ji, Bhai Manjeet Singh Ji (USA) and all other dignitaries and Sangat of India and abroad.
