The Baba Ji Who Did Akhand Paaths by Memory in Single Sitting

Baba Narain Singh ji(father of Kahn Singh Nabha) was a saintly person who had whole of Guru Granth Sahib
jee memorized and regularly recited Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji four times a month.

Thrice in his life he recited the Guru Granth Sahib in one sitting (Ati/Atee Akhand Paath). An Atee Akhand
Paathee is such Khalsa who can do the whole of Siri Akhand Paath Sahib in one sitting without stopping.


This is completed usually in 9 Pehars ( ) or 27 hours

Once Maharaja Hira Singh of Nabha sat with him to listen to the Akhand Path recitation and on completion
of the path was so happy that he offered Bhai Narain singh Nabha a Jagir (estate). On listening to the offer
Bhai Narain Singh ji said – is that it ?

Maharaja Hira singh thought – maybe Narain Singh wants more and said – ask anything bhai sahib ji ….

On listening to which Narain Singh ji said – this is the reason i do not do path at rich peoples home – they try
to put a price tag.

He then humbly requested “If you really want to give me something then PLEASE do ardas for me that Guru Sahib blesses me with his sewa
and that he remains a humble servant of Guru GranthSahib ji till the end”
