Wooden toy trucks on sale outside Dargah Peer Sai Baba Budhan Shahji




Small wooden toy trucks on sale outside Dargah Peer Sai Baba Budhan Shahji in Punjab, India. This lies at a distance of about 400 metres east of Gurdwara Baba Gurditta. Baba Buddan Shah was held in great reverence by Baba Gurditta. The legend is that Baba Buddhan Shah lived for as many as 800 years. His tomb was built by Baba Gurditta, who is said to have remarked that whosoever visited his place would certainly pay homage at the tomb of Baba Buddan Shah. It is also said when Baba Buddan Shah was 550 years of age, Guru Nanak Dev met him at the place, where now Gurdwara Charan Kamal stands. Visitors believe that a visit to the tomb has the power to heal skin diseases. People offer salt, mustard oil, jharu (broom) at the tomb of the Saint. A fair is held there in the month of October every year. Peer Budhan Ali Shah, who some claim was born an Arab named Shams-ud-din, (Sun of the faith) was a Sufi Muslim Saint (some claim he lived to be more than 800 years old) He is also said to have been born in Talwandi (now known as Nankana sahib), the birth place of Guru Nanak sahib. He lived in the area of today’s Kiratpur, long before the township was established. Many myths have been written about him and two cities have shrines that claim to hold his remains. In Jammu City planes are said to dip in deference to his memory on landing and taking off. On each Thursday, his grave near the city’s airport becomes the site of a huge Langar as people bring pots of Biryani, to the tomb of the beloved Sant who was a vegetarian his whole life. Others say he was the model for Gandhi ji’s diet his last years, as he subsisted only on milk from his goats that were milked by lions the Pir kept that were there shepherds and milkers as well. Such are the tales of this legend grown larger than life.
