Sant Gurbachan Singh Jee Bhindrawale’s 11 Main Teachings

Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa, Bhindrawale did seva of Khalsa Panth for numereous years through the medium of parchaar.  He was a Jathedar of the Damdami Taksal, the Sikh school for Gurmat studies.  For several years, he taught numerous students how to recite Gurbani and do katha.  Several of Sant Ji’s students are still doing active parchar today.

Following are 11 teachings of Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa which he promoted during his sermons.  These are being posted for the benefit of our readers.

1) Take amrit from Panj Pyarai and become Guru Vale, always keep rehat, never let your rehat falter.

2) Make others into Nitnemis.

3) Always recite Gurbani correctly.

4) Memorize Gurbani.

5) Never try to become “big” (famous).

6) Always respect Sangat as the form of Guru Jee.

7) Always help Panthik Jathebandis in times of need.

8) Recognize that your mind, body and wealth all belong to Guru Jee and do seva of Gursikhs.

9) Recognize that ਅਵਲਿ ਅਲਹ ਨੂਰੁ ਉਪਾਇਆ ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਕੇ ਸਭ ਬੰਦੇ ॥ and so respect and have love for every person.

10) Always remember that everything is happening because of God.

11) If a Mona (person who cuts his/her hair) or someone that smoked cigarettes (or used other drugs) would make langar Sant Jee would never eat it or let the Jatha eat it. They would always keep the utmost cleanliness. They would never eat others jootha or let anyone eat their jootha, they were against using cha (tea) and other drugs.


  1. aval aleh noor oupaaeiaa kudharath kae sabh bandhae |
    First, Allah created the Light; then, by His Creative Power, He made all mortal beings.

    Implies that God created everyone, so we should not have hatred towards any being.

    This means that drinking cha was not allowed by Sant Gurbachan Singh. A lot of Chardi Kala Gursikhs don’t drink cha, they see it is a drug.

    The drink you are referring to made by Nihangs is called Shardaee or Shaheedi Degh. They make a kind of protein drink and put cannabis in it. According to Gurbani that is wrong.

  2. Hi, sorry I just wanted some clarification on the 9th and the last main teaching. 9th one could someone please translate the text and possibly english transliteration and on the 11th one the last line where it mentions use against cha. My understanding is that maybe that cha is classified as a stimulant because of the caffeine content? Am I right in thinking this or is cha some sort of slang maybe for something else other than tea or is it refering to a special version of tea with something extra added (i.e ive heard during holla maholla it is custom for nihang singhs to drink bhang?
    Thank you for any response
