The Great Soul who was on earth for the better of mankind. Pooran Brahm gyani. Jo bahut jaldi shreerak vichoda de gaye. Par oh ithe hi ne. In every difficulty and happiness I realize Him. He had an orra which is still there. I pray God please saanu unha de dasse poorneyaan te challan di smratha do. Sohane vargi pavitar jagah naal jodi rakho. Te Dhan Dhan sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji de charne naal jodi rakho. Ehi mere pyaare babaji chahunde si.

Nimarta de Prteek sun VEERJI

I was alwys a die hard fan of veeji, He was always Humble & polite wit everyone, I ws wit him around a week b4 he left us. Ek Buzurg Mamtaji aaye si Veerji nu milan,Veerji was very weak & ws in very bad bak pain. But B4 that lady came near to veerji, he got up & touched her feet. She ws zapped. She said main taan tuhaday charan choonay si tussi meray pairi kyon pai gaye. On that Veerji said Appne puttar nu saara aashirwad daynday ho mainu nahi dogay?. He ws a vry practical Sikh. Neve allowed anyone to bow to him. Neve alowwed anyone to call him sant. I really miss him a lot. I have lost a big brother who ws helping to get close to Guru. LOVE U VEERJI, U R STILL LIVING IN MY HEART!!!

Experience with "Veer Ji"

This is experince of one sethi sahib of sec 46. once he went to a doctor and veerji just came out after his own examination..sethi sahb enquired about veerji.. doctor told him that he did not have heart even to talk and i wonder how he does kirtan. he always use to say i don't do kirtan its HIS kirpa and sangat's love by which i do kirtan. may be he had taken pains of people also on his body.

ik vari main veerji kol gaya te puchya man dolda hai ki kariye..he said jadon naam hirday te vas janda hai fer nahi dolega...savere sham adha ghanta simran karya karo...

once he advised me to do sahaj Paath, bartan dhon di seva, jordean di seva karya karo

we had special love..love is still there..once i asked him "man janat hi augun kare" fer ki kariye ... he said man(mind) nu aapni akal naal nahi samjha sakde.. is nu guru di mat naal samjhana paina hai...taan eh samajhda hai..

Veerji tusi jis kam layi aye si, tusi O kam ta karke jana hi si. Par bahut bahut dhanvaad, jo menu vi guru sahib de larr lagan di prerna sangat vich baitheya baitheya de diti. Kewal prerna hi nahi diti, prann vi drirr krawaya. Samme Samme te jado adhiyatamak sawaaal mann vich aye, tusi sangat vich hi ohna da jawaab dita. I never met you personally, but whenever I sat in the sangat, and You were speaking from the stage, I have always found you answering my questions without me asking them. Akal purakh ne aap dwara mere naal communicate kita. You are still with me during my ........... I cant forget your kirtan on 28th March, 1996, when you sang the shabad Othe amrit vandiye, sukhiya har karne. Tusi kewal Os vele amrit chakan di prerna hi nahi diti, par baad wich tusi adhiyatamak maarg te vi samme samme te sahayata kiti. Waheguru ji tussi .............................

Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh.

Maire kol words nai hai express karan waste ki mai ki feel kar rai haan veerji de akal chalada karan to baad. I don't have words to write how I am feeling now. today.  I feel like ki mai anath ho gayi haan kyunki asi veerji kol pichlein 25 years to ja rahe haan te mainu hude wi believe nai ki veerji sama gaye hun. Not only to me I think its great loss to Sikh religion but I pray to God to send his messenger like veerji on earth. A saint, person ,father like veerji is really difficult to find on this earth.

Bhai Jasbir Singh Jee has been one of the most inspirational and amazing Keertani that I have ever experienced. He has inspired me and brought me closer to Sikhi itself... His Katha is priceless and honestly just opens up your eyes into the real world. I can't explain in words how amazing he is ...

Almost every day this week I've been listening to Bhai Jasbir Singh jee's keertan CD. It has two Shabads: "Hau Vaar Vaar Jaao Gur Gopaal" and "Satgur Parmeshar Mera" and "Anand Sahib" ...

Just amazing.. I can't express.. there is so much love in their keertan.. And that love is totally contagious.. the sangat begins to sing also with so much love.. It shows the sign of a person who really sings keertan from their soul and practices the Guru's teachings.

He is certainly one of the truest Gursikhs

Sangat ji,   I was in contact with Veerji since my birth . I'm from Bhopal. He used to come to Bhopal for smagams and used to stay at our place. We are so lucky. I was a very enchanting experience for me.

But it made me very happy kii inne vade mahapurush ne mainuu aaap bulaaya

Bhai sahib used to say that let your children know about Sikhi so that they can say 'we are proud to be Sikh'. If you want to teach children their language and culture, traditional wisdom says, "Catch ‘em young".

SO PLS 'SATKAR' THESE PERSONALITIES WHO DEVOTE THERE WHOLE LIFE FOR "MAANAS JAAT".

Whenever I now hear Veerji sing “Waheguru waheguru” which he used to do before commencing any kirtan program, I get the feeling that Veerji has not gone anywhere but is still with us.   I am  a resident of Rajori Garden in Delhi. Every year, Veerji used to have a three day Gurmat samagam at Rajori. The entire Rajori sangat would wait eagerly and impatiently for these three days. ..              Par hun eh intezaar, intezaar hi banke reh jayega... It is our prayer before Guru Maharaj  to keep on sending such souls. May our prayers and ardas be answered by Guru Maharaj.

I got something to tell :  Bhai Sahib passed away Saturday morning right..? And this is the weirdest thing : On Friday night when me and my brother were coming back from a keertan program I linked my iPod to the car and played the Amritsar April 1987 - Bhai Jasbir Singh Jee tracks. It was a long time my brother had heard Bhai Sahib. He asked me whether Bhai Sahib had passed away - because the track was very old and it was old skool keertan. I  told him no he is alive today and he had just just gone to Toronto for the July 2006 Samaagam.   I told my brother that  he still did keertan. Then Saturday morning came. I'm like what ??

BHAI SAHIB JASBIR SINGH A GREAT LOSS TO THE SIKH NATION

Freedom Fighter at akj.org

Back in 2004, when I had just came into sikhi at that time and it was one of my first raensabayees. It was in Toronto. I sat through from beginning to end. Just when I thought I'd go home, (at about 5 am) Bhai Sahib went on and did kirtan. For quite over an hour. I didn't want to budge even to miss 5 min of it. It was such an amazing and uplifting kirtan by Bhai Saahib ji.

Jaspaul Singh at akj.org

Whenever Khalsa Panth was in need, DHAN SREE GURU GRANTH SAAHEB JEE produced Gursikhs of such calibre, who, having got guidance and enlightenment from DHAN SREE GURU GRANTH SAAHEB JEE would realise the need of the hour and their Duty and responsibility and act accordingly. These included Sant Attar Singh Mastuaaney Waaley, Bhai Randhir Singh, Baba Sundar Singh Khalsa Jatha Bhindraa, Baba Gurbachan Singh, Sant Jarnail Singh Khalsa, Bhai Veer Singh, Baooji Jaswant Singh Khoji, Bhai Joginder Singh Talwara, and lately Bhai Jasbeer Singh Khalsa and many others had realised their duty in time and did their part of the Nishkaam Sewaa, effect of which is being felt and shall be felt until decades later. Meanwhile DHAN SREE GURU GRANTH SAAHEB JEE shall continue to Churn up and awaken Good Souls and turn them into Gurmukh Souls.


So no need to sadden our inner heart and being and Let's all thank Waheguru jee that HE Blessed us with DHAN SREE GURU GRANTH SAAHEB JEE so that we will continue to have more and more such great sewaadaars as long as world shall ever exist.

Bhai Sahib ji will be greatly missed, we had the pleasure of sitting with him during his recent visits, he came to our house and shared his veechar with us. He started off in AKJ in his earliar years, with conversations with him he had the utmost respect for the jatha, he stressed how he was blessed to have met and done sangat of gursikhs like Bhai Jeevan Singh ji, Talwara ji, and Pooran ji.

Bhai Sahiab ji was definitely in another category of gursikhs. His soul was definitely blessed, and he touched many other, and converted many others. Bhai Sahib ji will definitely be missed

Bhai Sahib was an exemplary Gursikh striding across the contemporary Sikh Society for nearly decade. He was a dedicated Sikh Missionary of great knowledge, zeal and repute who was renowned worldwide. A fearless preacher, very outspoken and having a rational outlook, he preached according to the concepts of Gurmat and Gurbani. He was one of the few towering personalities to whom the Sikh Sangat looked up to.

He was successful in disseminating Sikhi in America, Europe, and South East Asia. He also established a meditation center at Mohali, Chandigarh where a Samagam is held every year based upon Amrit Wela. Bhai Sahib was very strict about Amrit Wela and Naam Kamee.

His demise has created a vacuum, which would be very difficult to fill. The Sikh Community needed him at this crucial juncture when western influences are making inroads into the Sikh Culture. The loss of Bhai Jasbir Singh jee is indeed, a great loss to the worldwide Sikh Community.

Harsimran at akj.org

I can never forget him : his one kirtan converted me from an atheist to whatever pyaar I have for Guruji today

It's not often you see great gurmukhs like this. Most pyiaar I  have ever seen

Waheguru Fateh

I have an old tape in my car of the Simla samagams where Bhai Sahib breaks into simran for about half and hour with the sangat. It’s sounds so powerful with thousands of voices of the sangat. Bhai Shaib’s simple keertan and katha was just so inspirational, you could hear the passion in his natural voice.

In this day and age it’s all about tunes, jathabhandis and young babas. Bhai Sahib Jasbir Singh Khalsa was part of that “old skool” crew who were simple, passionate and kept it real.

Kharkoo Singh

When such an amazing GurSikh who has done so much for the Khalsa panth leaves for his righteous home and merges with the True Guru, we have to be happy for them. Sad for us, yes, for we have lost such an amazing figure. But i remember meeting him a month ago only, and he was looking very frail and it did prepare me for some news i guessed i would hear of him soon. And i got the call this afternoon and was very very saddened to hear it. But "shukrana" hai uss Malak da, jis ne sanu aise GurSikh parchaarik peje san iss duniya te... we are very greatful for to Maharaj for blessing us with such amazing parchaaraks in the first place..

Nama Singh

Its a bolt from the blue to the whole Sikh Community whose beloved Veerji has left for Sachkhand. He has given the whole world the picture of a True Khalsa. His Updesh, His Bachan can never die. His Jeevan can never die. He has given us a treasure, a treasure that can never be destroyed. Let's follow His Bachan and shape our lives accordingly. That will be our true Shradanjali to the great Gurmukh, Brahmgyani, and beloved Veerji. He's a Panth Ratan. "Brahmgyani Sad Jeeve Nahi Marta II"

How many gursikhs do you hear that had the vadday bhaag to pass away while in the Gurdwara Sahib, after doing keertan? Bhai Sahib passed away in Gurdwara Sahib Akal Ashram and now his soul has gone to Sackhand Akal Ashram ... waheguru..

Sikhyouth

Daas attended Bhai Sahib's deevans a few times when he came here. in my humble opinion, attending bhai sahib's deevans was one of the best times of my entire life. the atmosphere and vibrations in the deevan and the sharda and prem in Bhai Sahib's keertan was overwhelming. Bhai sahib did simran at Gurdwara Singh Sabha on my birthday. i prayed before guru sahib that i have wasted so many years please set me on the right path. guru sahib is amazing. that simran program was unbelievable. i never met Bhai Sahib, i only felt the warmth and glow of his presence. he was blessed by the true Guru, Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth sahib ji maharaj.

Singh

Wherever Bhai sahib went, he always asked the sangat to follow the basic principles of Shabad Guru. He set up local cells at different stations to recite Kirtan where Sangat could gather to recite Gurbani for spiritual enlightenment of mankind. He  also opened various platforms for the service of humanity and always inspired people to help the needy people irrespective of caste and creed. He recited Kirtan and Kathas in the praise of God Almighty strictly on the lines of Gurbani.

Jasvinder Singh, Toronto

Bhai Sahib was a Nishkam Sevak of the Khalsa Panth. He had also been awarded for nishkam kirtan in 1996 by the Akal Takht. Today you will meet so many Kirtaniye, parcharaks, but u will rarely got Kirtaniz or Parcharaks who realy want to do seva of khalsa panth, to who you can say yeah hez a Niskam Parcharak .. According To Panth Ratan Giyani Sant Singh Ji Maskeen , Bhai Jasbir Singh Ji was braham giyani. Khalsa Ji was also avery great Sevadar of Sikh kaum . very Big Eye Insitute was runin under Akal Ashram . This hospital is made to serve poor  people of every cast and religion . It is a big loss to Khalsa Panth. This year (2006)  when Khalsa ji did katha at Rakabganj Sahib Delhi .. Lakhi Shah Vanjara Hall was full of Sangat . As bhai sahib came out of pandal after katha a hazuum of sangat went out with him. We were planning to call Bhai Sahib To Our Annual Guru Maneo Granth Smagam .. But i think Guru Ji Was planning some other things for us. Ki sanu Khalsa ji vichoda de gaye ..

Proud Khalsa

There are no words to describe how I am feeling at the moment. Bhai Sahib Ji has left us manmukhs, and he will be with his Guru and master forever. I'm feeling so sad, I just want to cry. I had obviously never spoken to Bhai Jasbir Singh Ji, I had in fact only ever heard his kirtan live at the Gurdwara a couple of times. It's just that Bhai Sahib was, and still is so amazingly chardikala, you could just see his love for Guroo Sahib in his face, you could feel it in his kirtan. I still vividly remember the last time I went to one of his programmes. It must have been atleast 2 or 3 years ago, It was a hot day, and at my local Gurdwara there was a 24hr akhand jaap going on. We found out khanne vale were at the other local Gurdwara, about 15 mins away. We got in the car and went there to listen to Bhai Sahib Ji. It was lovely, while the programme was ending, we found out Bhai Sahib would be coming to the akhand jaap for a little while, before having to leave(he had a plane to catch I think). You should have seen it, all the sangat rushed into their cars and started driving to the other Gurdwara where the akhand jaap was taking place. Somehow we find our car right behind Bhai Sahibs, all the way to the Gurdvara Sahib, I could see all the Singhs and they all were looking fantastic. We got to the akhaand jaap Gurdwara and Bhai Sahib did some great simran.


I will never forget Bhai Sahib, I don't think anyone in the Sikh panth will.

Singhstah

I have never seen any one doing Kirtan with such a love like him.

Just one month before his demise, I visited his residence at Akal Asram Sohana where I found him unhealthy and taking rest. He blessed me by placing his hand on my head. Earlier I met him personally 4-5 times at Akal Ashram. He told me to meditate on the meaning of first 5-pauris of Japji Sahib everyday for 30 minutes. He told this would develop love for Gurbani.

Sarabjeet Singh

Bhai Jasbir Singh Ji was not just a kirtinea. He was a a Sant Kirtinea. He was a true Saint in simple attire. Everyone around Veerji had the feeling of oneness and closeness with him. I felt the same way. I felt  that  no one was as close to Veerji as I was.

Bhai Davinder Singh Sodhi, Ludhiana

Bhai Jasbir Singh's smile was divine. He had such a innocent and beautiful smile (muskaan). When you saw him smile you felt that you were receiving a blessing thorough that smile.

Veerji,  The news (regarding the ceremony to present the Panthrattan award to Veerji's wife) award of  is being aired on Akash Radio today.

Manpreet Singh, "Akash Radio", Middlesex, UK

Bhai Jasbir Singh’s simran was truly celestial. It was soothing, serene and divine, I believe that this was due to Bhai Sahib’s own jeevan and kamaiee. His sangatee simran sessions were so powerful and are unparalleled. The sangat in India has never had the same experience that they enjoyed during Bhai Sahib's sangtee simran sessions. It was a unique and blissful experience to be present during any of Bhai Sahib's simran sessions. 

Charanjit Singh, Jalandhar

I am very impressed by Bhai Sahib’s decision to be known as “Veerji” .

I believe that his decision to be referred to as “Veerji” was motivated by a desire to avoid being called a “Sant” or being referred to as a “Baba”.  This shows how humble a person he was. It also shows his desire not to be treated differently from anyone else. It is a testimony to his humility and nimerta to be known simply as “veerji”. Veerji is a term of love and affection and by calling someone with this name, it automatically creates a feeling of love, closeness, oneness and affection. In an era when Babas and Sants are springing up daily,   I can’t think of anyone else who made such a decision to avoid being called a “Sant” or “Baba”.

Sarabjit Singh, Ludhiana, Punjab, India

Eversince I was very young( I am 18 now), I have been going to Veerji's kirtan in my hometown Delhi. And I always felt that special bond with him; he was really the cause of my passion for sikhi and sikh rehat. But then my parents decided to send me to boarding school and my only reason for not being pleased with that decision was that I wouldn't be able to attend Veerji's kirtan any more. But my mom said that if I actually had honest yearning to attend his kirtan, he will come to my school. So, all the years I was at school (from 4th grade), I eagerly expected that he would come and do kirtan at my school (Akal Academy Baru Sahib), and finally when I was in 11th grade (about to graduate from school in 2 years), he came. I was on the eleventh cloud, you can't even gauge my happiness at that time. And you also have his pics in his biography on your site of his stay at Baru Sahib. So, I have always taken him as my mentor and though I never got to talk to him personally, I always felt all of his teachings applied to me directly and were meant for me. It was a shock when I heard of his akal chalana but I tried to accept it as bhaana.   

                                                                   
- from a Sikh youth presently studying in the US

Bhai Sahib has gone but has left behind a legacy by way of showing all of us the way on how to connect with the Almighty Waheguru, and the whole Sikh jagat d' always be grateful to him for doing so! As a matter of fact my parents were visiting India (Chandigarh) when Bhai Sahib's call from the Almighty came. They attended the cremation as well as the bhog ceremony of Bhai Sahib in Mohali, and say that they haven't felt or seen anything like that in their lifetime!!

Mahanjot Singh Sodhi

I had a really special connection with this great Gurmukh, even though I only met him twice. He had a way of making you feeling closer to Guru ji, just by being in his presence. The first time we met was in Toronto for smagam that happened a few years back. I remember seeing him after the diwan and him lighting up with joy as he seen me and my friends in sikhi saroop. After that first day every time he saw us he would get really happy. And finally I got a chance to hug him and to ask him to come to Calgary.

He came to calgary not to long ago and I had the chance to spend a lot of time with him because he stayed at a close personal friends house. I felt so uplifted that I went with him to B.C. Every time I would go into his room to say my fateh he would light up and that light would instantly light up my heart. He was truly amazing. His kirtan was so filled with prem rass for Akaal Purakh, listening to it one would feel things that were indescribable. Even though the doctors told him not to do kirtan anymore because of his poor health, he never stopped. He said he couldn't live without it.

The attribute I admired most about Bhai Sahib was his selfless service. Bhai sahib had done so much and was always on the move. His passion for the kaum and humanity was what really drew me closer to him. It felt like this was the beginning of a beautiful relationship. I finally had met a Gurmukh who would help guide me. A Gurmukh who had nothing but love for humanity and Guru key Sikh.

His passing has inspired me to not sit idle and wait for tomorrow. He has inspired me even more after his passing to take steps to get closer to my Guru. He was truly a panthic jewel. I wish all of you could have had the same opportunity as me. Anyone who crossed his path instantly felt closer to Guru Ji. He will be missed very much by me and I'm sure by everyone who had the good fortune to meet him.
