Peace at any Price
The supreme sacrifice of Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji and the first holy discourse by Baba Hardev Singh Ji had far greater and much deeper significance.
The former showed that the Mission had paid the heaviest price for the peace. Earlier, more than 60 leading missionaries’ forbearance was put to the hardest test when they were compelled to undergo the agony of judicial custody for about two years for the fault that was found to be not theirs at all.
Now the Mission had lost its spiritual mentor whose only fault was that he preached Truth and Peace.
From the first holy discourse by Satguru Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj and the message contained therein, one could understand his vision for time to come.
With his call to devotees to continue to spread the message of love, peace and praying for goodwill for all, a disastrous mishap stood averted. No doubt the followers of the Mission continued to suffer both in terms of life and property here and there, the voice of Truth spread far and wide carrying with it the message of peace, love, humility and tolerance.
