Saint Satramdas Sahib was bathing at a river bank with his beloved son. He saw Khanumal coming towards them riding on a horse. Khanumal was childless he requested Saint Satramdas Sahib to allow him to take Shehensha Satguru’s son Amolak das with him for a horse ride. Saint Satramdas Sahib agreed.
Khanumal brought the child Amlok das to his house after a horse ride. His wife was at home at that time.
Some Darvesh Fakir had told Khanumal’s wife that if she carries a child of some great saint in her hands and turns him around her head clockwise and anti clockwise she will be blessed with her own child .
So when Khanumal brought Amolak das the child of Saint Satramdas Sahib she could not resist and wrapped a red cloth around him. She put red Tilak of Sindoor on his head and turned him 7 times around her head clockwise and 7 times anticlockwise and to their shock they realised that the child had put his head down and was dead.
They got scared and out of fear, left the child outside Saint Satramdas Sahib’s shop. When people saw Saint Satramdas sahib’s child lying dead, outside Saint Satramdas Sahib’s shop they were shocked and all the village people got angry and upset.
Everyone was sad and the whole atmosphere filled with sorrow and people were wondering why Khanumal had to commit such a sinful act.
In such a tensed atmosphere Saint Satramdas Sahib asked people to calm down and said, “We shall be happy in whatever God decides for us. There is no fault of Khanumal in this. Actually he came to me and asked me to allow him to take my son Amolak das, so that he can fulfill his thirst of spending some time with him. Now I pray to God that May God brings the season of happiness in Khanumal’s life”.
After one year a child was born to Khanumal’s wife.
When the child was born no one from the family, friends and relatives wanted to go to wish Khanumal and his wife because people were very upset at what he had done with Sai Dayal das Sahib..
When Sai Satramdas Sahib came to know about this, he called all the friends, relatives and family of Khanumal and said that a child with the grace of God was born in Khanumal’s house and it was the duty of everyone to go and bless Khanumal’s child and welcome him with love so that when he grows up, he spreads love and not hatred.
What we give him today he shall return to the society when he grows up.
Saint Satramdas Sahib made great sacrifices and deserted things that most people find valuable and worthy.
