She served Baba Avtar Singh Ji more as her spiritual master (Satguru), rather than as her father-in-law with full spirit of faith and devotion. She obeyed each and every word of Shenshah Baba Avtar Singh Ji so much so that she became an example for other devotees.
Despite this distinctive honour she continued to live an exemplary life as a disciple. In 1963 Gurbachan Singh Ji was entrusted with the duty of carrying forward the mantle of the Sant Nirankari Mission. Shenshah Baba Avtar Singh Ji noticed her dedication and sense of duty towards humanity, elevated Kulwant Kaur Ji to sit upon the same stage as the Satguru and pronounced her henceforth she be known as “Nirankari Rajmata Ji”.

Her Holiness bowed at his feet as a humble devotee although his mother in worldly relation. She showed the same faith and devotion towards Babaji till her last breath.
At home she was a loving, responsible and dutiful mother towards her son Baba Hardev Singh Ji and daughters Niranjan Ji, Jagjit Ji, Mohini Ji and Bindiya Ji.
