The stretch of land between rivers Satlej and Beas of the holy Punjab became more holy when a charming baby was born to Mata Parham Kauri wife of S. Boor Singh, (Bal by cast and agriculturist by profession), in 1821 AD in the village of Mansoorwāl, district Kapurthala. The village falls on the rail track connecting Jalandhar with Amritsar. It is located at a distance of 8 kilometers approximately from Beas railway station. T he birth of the child seemed in consonance with the divine order.

All who saw the divinely lighted face of the child felt enamored by the divine dispensation. Considering the happiness and the kindness granted by the almighty, the parents named the boy - Nihal Singh.

He was a kind hearted, care free, calm and liberal person right from his childhood. Even in his early days, he showed a disposition of unconcern detachment free from the worldly attraction who preferred to spend his time in seclusion and devotion. That is why his friends and companions of the neighborhood had nick-named him as ‘Mastana’, meaning the one who lives in a state of intoxication with his own self. Very often, even the elders of the village would address him by the same name.

He was never interested in the games the children play at various stages of their childhood. What to speak of enjoying pranks and plays, he would even talk very little. That is why perhaps he could neither engross himself in school studies nor in the domestic chores including tilling of land. He was ever engrossed in the meditation of His Nam. The parents tried their best to involve him in acquiring necessary education or tender the land and the cattle and become a respectable agriculturist of the village. But those who are blessed with the divine order and involved in the spiritual pursuit are never effected by these temptations. All the same, he would occasionally accompany his elder brothers- Bara Singh, Dasaunda Singh and Nidhan Singh to work in the fields or take the cattle out for grazing. During all this time, his mind would remain attached with the Almighty like Bhagat Dhanna ji -exactly in accordance with the conversation between Bhagat Namdev ji and Bhagat Trilochan .

One day a noble and holy person visited their home, He was amazed to see a child of young age sitting unconcerned with his legs crossed and folded. He addressed his mother and said, “Young lady, he seems to me a revered person engrossed in the meditation of Lord’s name all the twenty four hours. Millions of people will be blessed by him. The world will worship him”. The mother replied, “To us, he is a simple child who is ignorant of the worldly ways: and we remain ever worried as to what would happen to him? The noble soul laughed and said, “O mother, he is a great saint. Don’t worry about him. Timeless and ever pervading Lord is ever by his side.” So this child is not a simpleton. He is here to salvage the world.

He was always beyond the pangs and pleasures, happiness and sorrow, summer or winter, sleep, hunger and remained in a state of detachment, ever in one hue.

Considering his state, his mother paid more attention toward him than her other sons. She would herself bathe him and feed him. Often she would feel happy listening to the discourses; and feel depressed at his unconcerned life style.

One day a neighbouring lady visited his house along with her child and said to mother Pradhan Kaur, “ I have yet to finish my domestic chores. Can you keep the child with you for a while please.” So his mother asked him to pick up the boy for sometime so that she can finish her work. Despite repeated commands, he did not pick up the little child. When his mother (Pradhan Kaur) angrily asked him to pick up the child, he replied, “God alone will pick him up.” It is said that the boy expired after sometime. His (Nehal Singh’s) mother became angry and scolded him for having said like that. Seeing his mother’s rage, he laughed and said.” There is no need to fret and fume, O mother; he soon will come back to the family.”

His prophecies started becoming true right from his childhood.
