The Devoted Gursikh

Bhai Sahib has been described as Gursikh, being like a lotus flower and being absorbed in meditation. He has been described as a 'Sehaj-awastha Gursikh', the concept of 'sehaj' is to be in equipoise or state of equilibrium and calmness.
Bhai Sahib was a devoted Gursikh, who was 'Naam Abiyassi', he would rise early and spendtmany hours doing Naam simran. Through this process he was able to focus his surti (consciousness) to the Guru Shabad.

ਸੁਰਤਿ ਸਬਦਿ ਭਵ ਸਾਗਰੁ ਤਰੀਐ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਖਾਣੇ ॥
with one's consciousness focused on the Word of the Shabad, one crosses over the terrifying world-ocean. O Nanak, chant the Naam, the Name of The Lord.
 
When Bhai Sahib would do Kirtan, he would become so engrossed in the Shabad, it was 'vairag mayee' (melancholy) kirtan. Bhai sahib could do kirtan for hours and not get tired, it was simple style kirtan but the focus was on the Shabad and connecting with God (WAHEGURU). Bhai sahib spoke very little, he remained calm, never showed any anger or pain. He showed compassion to all, even those who would do his 'nindia' (slander/gossip). He remained detached from family and worldly affairs, whilst still fulfilling his householder responsibilities. He was educated but not arrogant and always remained humble and never sought the limelight. He was charitable (dhani) and performed Nishkam sewa (selfless service) to the Sikh Nation (e.g. he took out 10,000 pound bank loan to fund the first world tour).
When the Sikh nation was seeking 'Khalistan' after 1984 attack, Bhai Sahib focused on creating the Khalsa outside of Punjab, in one interview he said: "if we are seeking Khalistan, we must all become Khalsay first". Bhai Sahib travelled to over 40 countries across the world and performed countless Amrit sanchars (baptism ceremony). Not only did he help establish the 'Khalsa', he also nurtured the future generation of Sikh youth by organising Gurmat camps for children and youth across Europe and many other countries. In an interview with UK newspaper Awaaz Quam (1999) he stated that "we need to continue our efforts towards keeping the Sikhi Dharmic Parchaar Mission ongoing in the future".
