In the midst of preparations to celebrate Maharaj ji’s birthday, on the evening of the 14th, Valentine’s Day the Sangat was stunned with the news that our beloved Bhagat ji had passed peacefully after a long illness. Only a few days before he was telling Hardeep Singh that he would soon be mixing the Samagri for the havan with him. We have established a special section for tributes, so please send your fondest memories. His bhog will be on February 24th in Bhagat ji’s village. His Akhand Path will also be held at Gobind Sadan from 27 February to 29 February, with the bhog ceremony at 12 noon on Monday, 29 February. All are invited to celebrate his life.
