History | Baba Avtar Singh Ji (1899-1969)

Last Journey

Going by worldly norms, having been the spiritual head of the Mission for about 20 years, many devotees insisted that Baba Avtar Singh Ji be given a grand funeral with sandal wood etc.

But Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji explained that a dead body is just a dead body whether it belonged to an ordinary person, an intellectual, or even a holy man. So Baba Avtar Singh Ji was given a simple funeral at the electric crematorium in Delhi.
