Work On River

Sant Seechewal mobilized numberless people (Sangat) round the globe for the voluntary kar sewa of rejuvenation of Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s historic river Kali Bein, 160-km long tributary of the Beas, flowing through Doaba, the fertile central part of Punjab, known as the Granary of India. When Sant Seecyewal began the kar sewa in July 2000, the Kali Bein river was on the verge of death due to worst type of domestic and industrial pollution. Sant Seechewal, with the help of his Sangat, has cleared hyacinth and silt out of the bed of river, restored flow of clean water in it and beautified it with flowers and fruit trees, bathing ghats and bricked roads on its banks, transforming it into a picnic spot where the religious pilgrims, students and tourists from India and abroad come daily in large numbers to have a glimpse of its beauty.

Work On Underground sewerage System

Sant Seechewal has devised an underground sewerage system which is low-cost and indigenously modeled, but very effective, durable and easy to install. The efficacy of this system has been attested by its practical installation in more than 50 villages and towns. In this system, sewage waters are stored in a pond, treated in natural way and, then, supplied for agricultural use. This process promotes organic farming and saves farmers’ money on fertilizers and irrigation. The farmers of the area who, being crop-less and poor, were compelled to commit suicides, are glad to have a taste of prosperity as a result of Sant Seechewal’s kar sewa of the river.

Work On the Roads

Often remembered as “Baba of Roads”, Sant Seechewal has built thousands of kms of roads in backwards areas, which has set in a new era of faster economic and social development in this area.Work 


Meaning of "Nirmala"

(a) Adjective: Pure, pious, clean, without impurity or without blemish.

(b) Noun: A Sikh sect initiated at the time of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the tenth Guru of the Sikhs.

Brief History of "Nirmalas"

Guru Ji sent five of his chosen Sikhs, e.g. Ram Singh, Karam Singh, Ganda Singh, Vir Singh and Sobha Singh to Benaras for deeper study of Sanskrit holy books with a view to consolidat the philosophical basis of Sikhism. They returned to Anandpur Sahib after completing the allotted task after 1699, the date of the initiation of theKhalsa.

Guru Ji assigned them a task of translating Sanskrit holy books into Gurmukhi and of preaching Gurbani. These six and their followrs came to be known as "Nirmalas". They wore salmon colored clothes. They established deras to preach Gurmat in accordance with the Sikh traditions. Some Nirmalas Saints did not settle at one place and remained moving from place to place preaching Gurmat.
