In what has to be one of the most rare events to have occurred, Baba Raja Singh completed the entire Sri Guru Granth Sahib Akhand Paath in one sitting in 48 hours. The incredible feat was done by sitting in front of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and reading the entire scriptures without any breaks.
The last time such a recorded feat was done occurred by the father of Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha Baba Narain Singh Ji. Baba Narain Singh Ji became known as the Aati Akhand Paathee as he conducted the incredible feat several times.
There is no body known to have achieved this feat in over 100 years although Bhai Jeevan Singh Ji was known to have memorized the entire Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
Who was Baba Narian Singh Ji?
Once Maharaja Heera Singh of kapurthla asked in his Durbar ” Is there any person/Granthi who would recite the entire BAANI of Shri GURU Granth Sahib ” in one sitting. Some one from durbaris told the king that Baba Narayan singh is able to recite in only one sitting. Baba ji was called and asked to do what wanted the king. Baba ji agreed.
On the terms and conditions that he would no accept any honorarium for the job. King agreed. But a carpenter was called and ordered to fabricate a gold plated chair . The chair was fabricated likely to be fitted on the shoulders of the king. Baba ji completed the job in 72 hrs in only one sitting. Without taking water and no urination. When the Bhog was performed , the king asked babaji to be seated on the chair.
The maharaja hold the occupied chair on his shoulders and had a round in the streets of Kapurthala with the Shahi Band. Afterwards the chair was donated to BABA Narayan Singh ji.
