Saint Satram Das : A True Spiritual Master: Saint of Sindh
This is a fact that always Masters give knowledge to disciples but in the Indian history there are some evidences where the disciple become more famous than the master, off course it was not possible for Arjun to become world's number one archer without the teachings and guidance of Guru Dronacharya but we cant ignore that this was Arjun due to which Guru Dronacharya was able to generate such huge fame. Yet another such duo was of Saint Satram Das Sahib and Bhagat Kanwar Ram.
In the present time people, especially Sindhis, from all over the world wish to visit once to Raherki - a small village in the Pakistan, only because of the fact that this is the birth place of famous Sindhis saint Satram Das - the spiritual Master of great Sindhi Saint Amar Shahid Bhagat Kanwar Ram Sahib. Saint Satram Das Sahib were a Sufi [In the older days A person who wish and spend his life for the search of truth was called as Sufi.]
Satram Das was born as the youngest and third son of famous saint Khotaram Sahib, who was famous through out the Sindh as a person in lighted with light of divinity. His knowledge and devotion towards the all mighty were said match less. Satram Das was younger than Bhai Sahajram and Bhai Sabhagchand but as it is said that age is not an obstacle for a person to turn into a God intoxicated soul, it needs only the blessing and companion ship with the master of the spirituality and that went on the side of Satram Das as instead of his two elder brothers, he was more close with father - the famous master of spirituality. A spiritual soul can identify the presence of another spiritual soul, hence father Khotaram Sahib, send Satram Das to near by village Jahanpur to study scared Hindu religious books like Shrimad Bhagvat Geeta, Ramayana etc. under the able guidance and personal attention of famous teacher Bhai Veeruram.
It is said that voice of Sai Satram Das Sahib was, a thing which was out of this materialistic world, During the Bhagat when he start reciting Shabad Gurbani [Poetry] of Sri Guru Nanak dev, Kabir, Farid and Namdev, his voice become such melodious and with healing touch that listeners often forget their work. The followers of sai were increasing day by day and from place to place through out the Sindh. During the discussion with followers, Satram Das sahib always press that if you wish to reach the God , you must serve the poor and needy persons. In Hindi a few lines goes like
Nar Mein Narayan Ko Tum Paa Jaoge
Karoge jo Durbaloon Kee Sheva Prabhu se Tum Mil Jaoge.
[You will become able to find God in human if you serve the needy and underprivileged people surly you can merge your self with God]. In the 1910 A.D. Sai Satram Das Sahib left the physical world for the heavenly abode with leaving behind several thousands of devotees all over the world. All we can say about Saints like him is [in Hindi]
Santo Kee Vani Sada Sada Amar Rahati Hai
Marata Hai Sirf Sarer Aatma To Ajanmi Hoti Hai.
[Teachings of saints is immortal and is for the forever, It is the body not the soul which falls pray to death.] Presently Sacho Satram Dham temple at Raherki is being looked by Sai Sadhram Sahib ji.
