Giani Sant Singh ‘Maskeen’
A light of the divine knowledge in the form of Sant Singh ji “Maskeen”ji was born in the year 1934, to a devoted mother Sardani Ram Kaur ji and Sardar Kartar Singh ji at tehsil Lakki Marwat, in Banu district of Frontier Province (Now in Pakistan). Maskeen ji took the priceless jewels of wisdom from the sea of knowledge, Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji and carried forth the mission of Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji, who was an embodiment of Divine Light. With this mission he toured countries all over the world, sprinkling the nectar of the Holy Word (Naam) and bringing home those who had deviated or forgotten the path shown by the Guru. This mission was still in process when “the summon from the Lord came”. In accordance with this, on a Friday morning of 18--2-2005 at eight O’clock he left for his heavenly abode in Etawah, a township in the U.P. province of India. With his physical demise, the world in general and the Sikh community in particular experienced a deep loss, for his absence has created a vacuum that cannot be filled.
The human body that we have got…should do the duty of being humane. There should be humanity in life. But what is humanity?
According to Param Pujya Dadashri, the Gnani Purush (the enlightened one). The definition of humanity is that when someone hurts you, troubles you, you don’t like it. Hence, you should also not hurt anyone. That, according to him, is the biggest humanity. Whoever understands this and applies it in life means he knows what is humanity.
Getting a human body means one is free to go to any is one of the four forms of life (gattis). One is human form, the other three being – animal form, devgatti (heaven/celestial being) and narak gatti (hell/beast form).
Whatever are the causes so are the effect. If we show humanity, we will get a human body in next birth. If we are inhumane, we will be re-born as in animal form. If we are extremely bad and inhumane then we are re-born in narak gatti. If we spend our life in doing good for others and help them without any expectations then we get a life in devgatti.
In the given book, Param Pujya Dadashri has discussed the concepts of humanity with the humble intention that if people learn humanity then human life will be fruitful.
