At the young age, Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib went on the pilgrimage. After taking a dip in the holy river Maa Ganga , the Pandits over there asked him to leave something as a dakshina which was a custom. Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib said “ this custom of leaving something as Dakshina ( which is materialistic in nature)after a successful pilgrimage was a very old custom,

But before that practice, the custom of leaving something behind was not of any materialistic nature, but a person used to take an oath, to leave behind his bad habits, or improprieties after he successfully finished his pilgrimage. But as times changed, things like, greed, possessiveness, hatred, jealousy, discrimination etc started dominating men, and people got so much used to these wrong habits, that they became slaves of these habits, and did not want to part with them, and then they started the custom of leaving some materialistic things as dakshina instead of taking an oath of leaving bad habits after the successful pilgrimage.

Slowly and slowly this custom became popular and people forgot the actual practice”. Sai Satramdas sahib told Pandit ji that instead of leaving a materialist thing he would like to a leave a bad habit . Saint Satramdas Sahib said, that he from that moment, will get rid of speaking lies. Pandit ji was shocked and remained quiet. He did not know what to do and what to say. He was surprised and was wondering that how this young man knows about the very ancient customs of leaving behind the bad habits after the pilgrimage. Pandit ji realised that this young boy was not an ordinary human being, but a great spiritual personality. While Pandit ji was absorbed thinking about Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib, an old man, a yogi, whose forehead was shining brightly and had a long white beard, which was suiting his divine face, appeared from somewhere, and looked at, young Satramdas Sahib, and touched his feet. He said, that he himself did not know for how long he had been meditating.

He said, that everyday he asked God to bless him with his auspicious Darshan, his true divine form, and on that day while meditating he witnessed a strange kind of light, which he said, he could not describe, but he said that he heard a voice through that light, which said, “A true descendent of God has arrived on earth, who has a divine illumination on his forehead and whose name is ‘Satram’,and asked him to go and meet him, and then only he will get free, from the clutches of the cycle of birth and death, and will attain eternal oneness. That divine voice also said, that he should go and honor him, with the pious word SACHO (truthful) with SATRAM on its behalf, and tell the entire mankind that HE is SACHO SATRAMDAS and everyone should address him by this pious name. All human beings shall chant his name and adopt the path of truth under his guidance , because, those who will chant his name will achieve their ‘true Eternal destination’”. This name was actually one of the names of God. The one who chants this name will be actually chanting the name of God” This holy man of such a divine and radiant personality bestowed the title ‘Sacho Satram’ upon Sai Satramdas Sahib, and he was revered by the name of SACHO SATRAM DAS.

SACHO (Truthful / trustworthy).

SATRAM– Present in each and every particle.

Meantime, many holy people, Sants, Mahatmas, fakirs, yogis and Pundits came together and made Satramdas Sahib sit on a higher seat of honor and they themselves sat at his feet and cleared their doubts by listening to His divine Satsang.

Sacho Satram.
