All creatures live in Him and in Him will they remain forever. DEATH This life may change but it can never be destroyed, and though the change from one form of existence into another is called Death, this never means that death finally ends life, or even that it adds to life, or takes away from it. It merely transfers the life from one form of existence to another. A thing that disappears from our sight has not thereby ceased to exist. It reappears, but in another form and state.

In anger, he burned a Bible page by page while his friends watched. Sundar resolved to kill himself by throwing himself upon a railroad track.
Sundar announced to his father, Sher Singh, that henceforth he would get converted into the missionary work of Christ. His father officially rejected him, and his brother Rajender Singh attempted to poison him.
He was not poisoned just once but a number of times. People of that area threw snakes in his house, but he was rescued from mistreatment by the help of a nearby British Christian. Prior to this he had been staying at the Christian Missionary Home at Sabathu , near Simla, serving the leprosy patients there. Life of conversions[ edit ] Sadhu Sundar Singh In October , he set out on his journey as a new Christian, wearing a saffron turban and the saffron robe of a sadhu , an ascetic devoted to spiritual practice.
Singh propagated himself as a sadhu, albeit one within Christianity because he realized Indians could not be converted unless it was in an Indian way. Like Him I will belong to the road, sharing the suffering of my people, eating with those who will give me shelter, and telling all men of the love of God. He was referred to as "the apostle with the bleeding feet" by the Christian communities of the north. He suffered arrest and stoning for his beliefs, and experienced mystical encounters.
In , he crossed the frontier of Tibet , where he was appalled by the living conditions. He was stoned as he bathed in cold water because it was believed that "holy men never washed. He realized during his stay in missions that Western civilization had become the antithesis of original Christian values.
He was disillusioned with the materialism and colonialism of western society and tried to forge an Indian identity for Indian church. He used to lament that Indian Christians adopt British customs, literature and dresses which have nothing to do with Christianity and Christ. According to his biographers, he did not form close relationships with fellow students, meeting them only at meal times and designated prayer sessions. He was ostracised for being "different". Although Singh had been baptised by an Anglican priest, he was ignorant of the ecclesiastical culture and conventions of Anglicanism.
His inability to adapt hindered him from fitting in with the routines of academic study. Much in the college course seemed irrelevant to the gospel as India needed to hear it. After eight months in the college, Singh left in July As an ardent devotee of Christ who was only interested in spreading his message, he rejected the mixing of Jesus Christ and British culture.
Converting others[ edit ] Stories from those years are astonishing and sometimes incredible and full of miracles which helped in conversion. Indeed, there were those who insisted that they were mystical rather than real happenings. That first year, , he returned with an extraordinary account of finding a three-hundred-year-old hermit in a mountain cave—the Maharishi of Kailas , with whom he spent some weeks in deep fellowship. According to Singh, in a town called Rasar he had been thrown into a dry well full of bones and rotting flesh and left to die, but three days later he was rescued.
Nothing was heard of this evangelistic fellowship until William Carey began his missionary work in Serampore. The Maharishi of Kailas experienced ecstatic visions about the secret fellowship that he retold to Sundar Singh, and Singh himself built his spiritual life around visions. One reason why no one believed his version of this story was because Singh did not keep written records and he was unaccompanied by any other Christian disciples who might have witnessed the events.
He described a struggle with Satan to retain his humility , but people described him as always human, approachable and humble, with a sense of fun and a love of nature. This character, with his illustrations from ordinary life, gave his addresses great impact. Many people said, "He not only looks like Jesus, he talks like Jesus must have talked.
Some of the stories from these tours were as strange as any of his Tibetan adventures. He claimed power over wild things. He claimed even to have power over disease and illness, though he never allowed his presumed healing gifts to be publicised. For a long time Sundar Singh had wanted to visit Britain , and the opportunity came when his father, Sher Singh, who was converted too gave him the money for his fare to Britain.
He visited the West twice, travelling to Britain, the United States and Australia in , and to Europe again in He was welcomed by Christians of many traditions, and his words searched the hearts of people who now faced the aftermath of World War I and who seemed to evidence a shallow attitude to life.
Once back in India he continued his Gospel-proclamation work, though it was clear that he was getting more physically frail. Final trip[ edit ] In , Singh made the last of his regular summer visits to Tibet and came back exhausted. His preaching days were apparently over and, in the following years, in his own home or those of his friends in the Simla hills, he gave himself to meditation, fellowship and writing some of the things he had lived to preach. He was last seen on 18 April setting off on this journey.
Where he went after that is unknown. Whether he died of exhaustion or reached the mountains remains a mystery. Rajender Singh referred to many reputed miracles performed by Singh and people converted to Christ under his ministry. His manuscripts were written in Urdu , and later translated into English and other languages. Revell, Appasamy London: Lutterworth Press, Life in Abundance, edited by A. Thyagaraju Madras: CLS,
