Baba Virsa Singh

Looking for the way- Wandering youth or spiritual struggle

The 70’s and 80’s were a period of extremes. People in the west were affected by the two significant arenas; 1. the Vietnam war and 2, the Peace movement emanating out of the 60’s. As a result I hated the images and aftermath of war as a young teenager in the 60’s and later at university yearned for a more emotional and spiritually satisfying way to live.  This story is about a man who entered my life when I was not expecting it.  It seems all like a dream now, some years after he left this world we humans call earth.  

His name was Baba Virsa Singh, (or "Maharaj" Great King to his followers) a Sikh by birth from a small town in the Punjab (Sarawan Bodla 363klms NW of Delhi) who was for all intents and purposes illiterate. Despite this he was able to infuse people about him with the spirit of love and kindness as well as heal the emotional mental and physical being. Those who were able to meet him were surely blessed by some sacred karma beyond their dreams.  I am forever indebted to his love.

This is an extract from a book I am writing on my time with Baba from 1991 to 2007 when he died.
