Sufi Saint Ramchandra Ji of Fatehgarh | Lalaji Maharaj | Sufi Saint Thakur Ramsingh Ji of Jaipur | Sufism in India | Sufi System in India
Welcome to 05/06/11
Sufism and Santmat have been two streams in Islam and Hinduism respectively which have the same basic tenets barring the perfunctory traditions that have descended from their lineage. It was but natural that some enlightened individual would see the futility of this division. A great sufi mystic, Fazal Ahmed Khan Saheb, owing to his enlightened vision decided to demolish the boundary between the two sects by choosing a person belonging to Hindu faith his successor. These pages introduce you to some of the great flowerings that got birth from this great experiment. Now it is a path known by many names with Ramashram as prefix and having branches in India and abroad. This path had its origin in the Nakshbandia tradition of sufism but later branched out to dissolve into the stream of Santmat (or Bhaktimat).
PS: According to Mahatma Fazal Ahmed Khan Saheb, Sufism had its origin in ancient Indian mysticism, so it is coming back home, a circle complete.

Thakur Saheb Shri Ram Singh Ji was a Sant in the lineage of Sufism and Santmat in India. A great generous and reformist Sufi mystic, Maulana Fazal Ahemad Khan Saheb chose to bestow his grace on his able desciple belonging to Hindu faith, Mahatma Shri Ram Chandra Ji Maharaj (Lala Ji). Thakur Saheb was one of the great disciples of Mahatma Shri Ram Chandra Ji Maharaj.

Thakur Saheb's life story is beyond belief in contemporary life. His disciples regard him Guru at the pedestal of God Himself, who preached them that the path to Superconsciousness lied in Simplicity. His preaching was not sermons directed at his followers but his life itself. He demonstrated how a person could live without being deterred by temptations of life while continuously pursuing elevation of one's consciousness. His aura attracted thousands to his personality as he led virtues of Sufism into Santmat Bhaktidhara of Hinduism. Samarpan (let-go) and Yaad (remembrance) are the essence of his teachings.

Thakur Saheb gave very few instructions verbally. These too were personal guidance to individual Sadhaks who he found were in need of it. He never demanded anything from his followers, not even disciplehood. However those who pleaded for it, he willed them to be at the feet of his Master thus demonstrating the super state of samarpan towards his own Guru who he lovingly called - Guru Bhagwan.
This divine place situated near village Manoharpura is set in beautiful surroundings appropriate for sadhana or spiritual practices. Grand shrines of the accomplished soulsParamsant Thakur Sahib Shree Ram Singh Bhati, his companion and other half in life,

His teachings gathered from his lovers can be summarised as follows:
"Be in this world, play with all the available endowments but remain unattached. Do all the necessary works in your life but being duty-bound, not being governed by the desire of the outcome. Neither create belongingness nor any disengagement. Remember the mortality of the body and immortality of Yourself. Bear with the conflicts in life as these are transitory. Remain calm and happy and practice tranquility. Keep vigil on lust, anger, greed and cupidity. Fulfil duties sans desires and attain self realisation with a pure mind and understanding."
