Thakur Saheb was born on 3rd September
1898 in a small village in Jaipur, India. He was from
an elite Rajput family. His father was in service of
Since childhood, Thakur Saheb was deeply
religious. He received his education in Nobles School,
Jaipur and acquired knowledge of Urdu, Persian and English
He was married at the age of seventeen.
His wife, Gopal Kanwar was indoctrinated by her father
Shri Arisal Singh to lead a flawless and exemplary life.
Her complete life was an epitome of love, compassion
and asceticism. She was fully committed to her consort
and helped him to practice his spiritual pursuits.
Thakur Saheb was in service of police.
He joined as a constable and was later promoted to Thanedar.
He was posted at various places before he resigned in
This was the sublimity of this man.
In the service of police, amidst an environment of all
the vices and depravity, he not only managed to preserve
his sensitivity and human values but could attain the
stage of Superconsciousness, termed as enlightenment.
It is impossible to give account of
his devotion towards his Master, Mahatma Ram Chandra
Ji Maharaj. Thakur Saheb first had a taste of the spiritual
might of his Guru when he encountered a photograph of
Mahatma Ji at the home of a friend. He felt a strange
attraction towards the photo and borrowed it for a few
days. He kept the photograph in front of him while meditating
and felt receiving spiritual benediction. This was a
climactic point in his life. He corresponded with the
person in the photograph and accepted his desciplehood
without even getting a chance of being face-to-face.
Later Mahatma Ji, who is also called
Lala Ji lovingly by his followers, showed up himself
to meet Thakur Saheb and even went to his village. After
being face to face with his Master, Thakur Saheb says,
"Only a few days after having his darshan, I started
feeling as if I am moving as my Guru Bhagwan moves;
I am seeing as my Guru Bhagwan sees".
One of his favourite Ghazal was:
Tere ishq ka ye asar dekhta hun, tarakki
pe darde jigar dekhta hun;
Samaaya hai jab se tu meri nazar mein, jidhar dekhta
hun tujhe dekhta hun.
(The consequence of my passion towards
you is that it is afflicting more and more. Since your
being immersed into my eyes, only you are visible everywhere)
His whole life afterwards felt presence
of his Master near him. The life became more and more
blissful and he attained the super state of ananda.
His compassion transcended all barriers.
He is known to feed thieves and criminals during their
detention in the police station before partaking himself.
He used to cook himself for his "guests".
People narrate incidents of his empathy for the camel
he rode. After a long ride, he would caress the animal
and knead its legs. His pledge towards truth was so
much that he was regarded by equal respect by judges
and criminals. Under his remand, criminals accepted
their offence without any coercion. This was the power
of his truthfulness.
He symbolised samarpan, total let-go
towards his Guru Bhagwan. He melted down his self, his
ego at the feet of his able Master. To those who came
near him, he advised to always accept the will of God.
"Razi hain hum usi mein jismein teri raza hai"
(I give in to Your will).
Thakur Saheb left his body in the early
morning on 15th January 1971. A samadhi mandir has been
built at the place where he was cremated. Many people
visit the place to pay homage, get solace and to perform
sadhana in the energy field of his samadhi. Every year,
on 14th and 15th January, a large congregation of his
followers is held where his grace is remembered by his
lovers and guidance for spiritual elevation is provided
by patriarchs of this path.
