(The first Master of the Dera Baba Bagga Singh, Tarn Taran)
Baba Bagga Singh ji was born in village Chuslevar, Tehsil Patti, Distt. Amritsar, Punjab, India.
At the age of 16 he learnt to recite 'Panj Granthi', 'Bhagaton ki Bani' and 'Guru Granth Sahib', the Sikh holy books, from sage Gian Singh. While exchanging views with the sage he said, "To realize God a spiritual Guru is must. If any one thinks of crossing the big ocean of this mortal world without a sailor, the Guru, it is a mistake". He always honored his teacher sage Gian Singh.
He spent most of his time in meditation and sometimes helped his father and brothers in their work. At the age of 18 on March 20, 1882 he joined the Indian Army. He was posted to Multan, Pakistan where he came in contact with Baba Jaimal Singh ji (the first Satguru of dera Beas).
He was initiated on August 1,1883. As a daily routine he listened to Baba Jaimal Singh ji's satsang, and meditated.
On August10, 1889 Baba Jaimal Singh ji retired from the Army and asked Baba Bagga Singh ji to retire from the Army Service when due, and transfer to the Army Reserve Force.
In July, 1890 Baba Jaimal Singh ji initiated Baba Bagga Singh ji's brothers and their families. He ordered Baba Bagga Singh ji to start initiation on Dec 5, 1894.
Baba Bagga Singh ji continued visiting his Satguru in Beas. In 1897 Baba Jaimal Singh ji introduced him to Baba Sawan Singh ji the second Satguru of dera Beas.
In Feb 1900 Baba Bagga Singh ji bought a piece of land and after some time he bought some more land to add to it and established Dera Baba Bagga Singh, Tarn Taran which was inaugurated by Baba Jaimal Singh ji by delivering the first satsang at the Dera Tarn Taran. There after, satsang and initiation of devotees has continued at the dera till date. In 1916 Baba Deva Singh ji the second Satguru came to seek Baba Bagga Singh ji and lived in the Dera for the rest of his life.
After Baba Jaimal Singh ji left his mortal body Baba Bagga Singh ji became more deeply devoted to and absorbed in meditation. He visited Dera Beas when satguru Baba Sawan Singh ji invited him in 1926.
Baba Bagga Singh ji, with the blessings of Baba Sawan Singh ji, handed over the charge of his duties to Baba Deva Singh ji and left this mortal world on July 6, 1944.
