Sardar Sohan Singh was a renowned photographer of Amritsar. When he discovered that the Sun of Spirituality had risen over Amritsar, he immediately came for the darshan of Shri Babaji Bhagwan with an ocean of divine love surging in his heart. The moment he came before Shri Babaji Bhagwan he was granted an inner sight which was to remain with him all his life. He said to Shri Babaji Bhagwan:
“ I have come to take both from you– the material world as well as the spiritual world!”
Shri Nathji said to him: “Sardar Sohan Singhji, there is nothing lacking in the darbaar of Shri Babaji Bhagwan! You are welcome to take whatever you want! People come and complain to God that He does not give, but it is His complaint that no one comes to Him!”
The divine intoxication that Sohan Singh derived from Shri Babaji Bhagwan was so great that he soon forgot himself. It was in that state of divine intoxication that he would come to Shri Babaji Bhagwan every day, and return home in the same state. One day when the divine intoxication appeared to be wearing off he came to Shri Nathji and said: “ O Nathji! What a strange drama is this! First you fill me with intoxication and make me absolutely dependent on it, and then you take away the intoxication from me, and ask me to make my own wine! How can I make it, and where can I get it!”
His faith in Shri Babaji Bhagwan was beyond bounds. His faith in Shri Nathji too was similar to his faith in Shri Babaji Bhagwan, and in addition he loved Shri Nathji from the heart and soul.
He was the first person ever to have been permitted by Shri Babaji Bhagwan to take his photograph with his camera. He coloured the portrait beautifully and it was published in Shri Nathji’s book, “Zahoore Haqueeqat” in 1934, which was the biography of Shri Babaji Bhagwan. The taking of that first portrait of Shri Babaji Bhagwan was a privilege given to Sardar Sohan Singh which he remembered all his life. Shri Nathji always congratulated Sardar Sohan Singh for the unique relationship that he had been given by Shri Babaji Bhagwan.
