Sukhdev Manghandas from the city of Ghari Yaseen came to Saint Satramdas Sahib.
He told Saint Satramdas Sahib that by following his teachings he was fulfilling his duties towards his family and was also doing business with complete honesty.
He told Saint Satramdas Sahib that he does selfless service by helping the needy people and said that he was very happy and doing well in his business too.
But He told saijan that sometimes back Tilok chand from the city of Shikarpur came to him and told him that he had become bankrupt and though people think that he is rich but his actual circumstances were not good and he could not even afford food for his family.
Sukhdev told Saint Satramdas Sahib that Tilok chand told him that if his financial condition improves he will pay all his debts and also said that since I was the Follower of Saint Satramdas Saheb I should help him financially so that he can face the society, does not feel embarrassed and live a decent life.
Sukhdev told Saint Satramdas Sahib that looking at Tilok chand’s bad condition he helped him by giving him some stock for his house and even lended some money, but after some days Tilok chand , came back to him and said that he was in a very bad condition and he had no money to buy food and even his creditors were troubling him, so he wanted more help.
Sukhdev told Saint satramdas Sahib that when he looked at Tilok chand’s face with tears in his eyes and saw the loss of hope on his face he again helped him.
Sukhdev Told Saint Satram Das Sahib that Tilok chand for the third time also came to him and said that
it was very difficult for him to maintain a good status in this society, his children had grown up and he had to go for a wedding at his in in-law’s place and he could not even ignore it, and it was necessary for him to attend the wedding but he had no jewelry for the ladies of the house, as he had to sell all the jewelry and nothing was left at his home and he did not know how to face the society, so he wanted him to help in the name of Saint Satram das sahib and give him jewelry for a week which his wife and children will wear and which he will return back within a week,he said he dosen’t like to come to him but he had no other option.”
Sukhdev told Saint Satramdas sahib that he helped him once again by giving him some money and jewelry but Tilok chand did not turn up after a week and not even after 15 days, so he got worried and went to his house.
Sukhdev told Saint Satramdas Saheb that, when he reached Tilokchand’s house and asked him to return his jewelry Tilok chand started showing him his eyes in anger and said
that he was not a needy person that he would take something from him and said that he was an insane person and liked to waste his money to keep a good image in the society but if he told this to anyone he will teach him such a lesson that he will not be able to show his face to anyone.”
Sukhdev told Saint Satramdas Saheb that Tilokchand spoke very rudely with him and threw him out of his house, and now he was very disturbed and felt like not doing good to anyone in the future and asked Saint Satramdas Sahib to guide him.
After hearing Sukhdev’s sad story Saint Satramdas Sahib smiled and Said
” bhai Sukhdev, you have done a good deed in the name of God and you will be benefited and will also prosper in your life but don’t worry about what Tilokchand has done to you, go and tell him that you will do as he has told you not to tell any one about this incidence, so he should keep that to himself, and you will keep it to yourself.”
Sukhdev left and went to Tilokchand and told him that he had gone to Raharki Saheb to meet Saint Satramdas sahib and also gave him saijan’s message that he will prosper in his life and Tilokchnad should keep with himself what happened between them and he too will do the same.
On hearing this Tilokchand got angry and asked Sukhdev, that, why he went to Saint Satramdas Sahib to complain about him and why Saint Satramdas Sahib did not call him to Raharki Sahib and did not even called a Panchayat to solve the matter. Though Tilokchand got angry with Sukhdev but in his mind he got confused and very unpleasing thoughts started coming to his mind and he felt restless and then he decided to go to Saint Satramdas Sahib. Saint Satramdas Sahib also called Sukhdev to Raharki Sahib.
Saint Satramdas Sahib said
” Dear Son Tilokchand, people talk good and even bad in this world when they talk good about us we like it but if they talk bad, we cannot tolerate it. every one wants to listen to only good things about himself, we forget about what good people spoke about us, but cannot forget, if they spoke ill of us, so every one like people to talk good of them and cannot tolerate any thing ill spoken of them.
There are so many people in this world who are helpless and needy, and to fulfill their needs, they call God by remembering him, and then God sends them to some good people, these good people do the needful for the poor and needy in the name of God. God takes care of those who help these needy persons , you went to Sukhdev with a bad intention but asked for help in the name of God, and he helped you in the name of God, and God will give him the benefit of doing a good deed, but if he goes and tells people about your fraud, then the people who help the needy and poor people will never believe any needy person and will suspect them in future, and they will not help them, and due to this good people will miss the opportunity to earn goodness and the needy will remain without help, and you will be responsible for that sin, and for that you will have to suffer the consequences. Because of your fraud, the people who want to perform good deeds and those who deserve to get help will not be benefited and that is why I told Sukhdev not to tell people about this heinous incident”
Tilokchand was in tears when he heard the beautiful pravachan of Saint Satramdas sahib and said” Oh my beloved lord, you have blessed me with your true words and now bless me that I too become your servant like seth Sukhdev.”
Tilokchand got all the money and jewellery and gave it to Saint Satramdas Sahib and Saint Satramdas Sahib returned that to Sukhdev.
He blessed Tilokchand with NAAM DAAN and saved him from doing wrong things in his life, and by accepting the precious NAAM from Saint Satramdas Sahib, Tilokchand became a very honest and hardworking person and helped people. The one who used to cheat others, now started supporting the needy people.
