reformers, a spiritual teacher and national leader. He came in this world with a set mission of giving peace and
solace to this world. Without him not only the history of Vishwakarma's is incomplete, but also the history of mankind is
was a saint of very high order, a spiritual guide who
showed the way of peace in the groping humanity. The great
Satguru Ram Singh Ji born at Bhaini, a small village in
District Ludhiana (Punjab) in 1815.
Jassa Singh was his father, who was carpenter by
profession and Ramgarhia (Matharoo) by cast. Satguru Ji
got his early education at Bhaini Sahib in Gumukhi and
Gurbani. He joined Khalsa army and served for several
years under Kanwar Naunihal Singh (grandson of maharaja
Ranjit Singh Ji). While serving in the army he came across
Baba Balak Singh Ji. The word and teaching of Baba Balak
Singh Ji sank deep into his mind. One day Satguru Ram
Singh Ji said goodbye to his job and started his spiritual
year 1857 was not an ordinary year. It was the year of revolt,
struggle and war. Satguru Ram Singh Ji was not a silent
spectator. He formed “Sant Khalsa”, which later developed
into great historical Kuka movements. He therefore issued a
special code of discipline for his followers. Religious Satguru
Ji declare” Guru Gobind Singh’s granth sahib (ADI GRANTH)

sacred writing extent” he was not in favour of idol
worshipping. All followers of satguru are distinguished by the
white dress, straight and pressed turban and a woolen rosary.

exercised a check on the western impact.
In 1872 after the MALERKOTLA incident whole Kuka movement was outlawed,
Bhaini sahib was surrounded. Satguru Ji was taken into custody
and was deported first to Alahabad and then to Burma, where he
remained as state prisoner Even in exile Satguru ji continued
to have contact with his followers and exchange messages
fore-casting the “British Raj was now on its last legs”. The
