This diseased worm has no words to describe the eternally supreme benevolence of Guru Sahib jee. But still couldn't stop myself from expressing my thoughts. (a.) Pandit Lal Chand Peshauria (from village Panjokhara near Ambala) did not understand the supremacy of Guru Sahib, and was irritated as to howcome a "little kid" can be called Sahib Sri Guru Harkishan Jee Maharaj. He tried in vain to test Guru Sahib, and Guru Sahib did kirpa on Chhajju who was able to do the meaning of Bhagvad Gita. Lal Chand fell on Guru Sahib's feet and became a Sikh. In 1699 he took Amrit and became Lal Singh, and a few years later in 1704 he was among those Singhs who were fighting 1 million enemy troops at Chamkaur Sahib. When Sahibzada Baba Ajeet Singh jee went out into the heat of battle, Bhai Lal Singh was among that jatha of 5 Singhs who went with Baba jee and attained Shaheedi. (b.) Syed Baig was the brother of Bibi Naseera who was Pir Budhu Shah jee's wife. He was sent by the Mughals to assasinate Sahib Sri Guru Gobind Singh Jee Maharaj. Bibi Naseera pleaded with him not to, but he didn't pay any attention. On his way to the battle, he kept thinking to himself "If this Guru is really something, then He will know what I have in mind and will show me His greatness". The scene of battle was set. Singhs and Mughals were looking eye-to-eye ready to strike. In the midst of this, Dasmesh Pita jee went all by Himself right in the middle of both armies and called out to Syed Baig, and said "Syed Baig, the battle will go on, but first you come and tell me what do you have in mind". Syed Baig mind was blown away. He got off his horse and submitted his sword at Guru Sahib's feet. It is said that he became a Sikh and was a Shaheed fighting alongside with the Singhs. ਕੋਟਿ ਪਰਾਧ ਮਹਾ ਅਕ੍ਰਿਤਘਨ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਸਹੀਐ ॥ Again and again, God puts up with the millions of sins of the supremely ungrateful ones. (c.) Pandit Kirpa Ram Dutt (from Mattan, Kashmir) came with a legion of destitute Kashmiri Pandits at the feet of Sahib Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Jee Maharaj seeking shelter from the attrocities of Iftikhar Khan. After Guru Shaib jee's Shaheedi, he became a Sikh and became Bhai Kirpa Singh, another one of the blessed Shaheeds of Chamkaur Sahib along with his brother Bhai Sanmukh Singh (formerly Sanmukh Das). (d.) Pir Budhu Shah ji, a very highly revered Sayyad Sufi saint met Dasmesh Pita ji when Guru Sahib was very young and Pir jee was pretty aged. They both had spiritual discussions after which Pir jee fell at Guru Sahib's feet. The first 2 instances are of those who came before Guru Sahib with arrogance and ill intentions. The other 2 came to His feet seeking in all humility. But see the blessed nature of SatGuru Patshah jee, He lovingly accepted every single one of them inspite of whatever intentions they had, and not just that, He showered them with so much love that they happily sacrificed their lives. What must they have felt seeing Him right before themselves? What must they have thought when they saw His eyes full of love and only love, inspite of the fact that they had so much negativity in their minds for Guru Sahib? ਕਉੜਾ ਬੋਲਿ ਨ ਜਾਨੈ ਪੂਰਨ ਭਗਵਾਨੈ ਅਉਗਣੁ ਕੋ ਨ ਚਿਤਾਰੇ ॥ He does not know any bitter words; the Perfect Lord God does not even consider my faults and demerits. ਪਤਿਤ ਪਾਵਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਬਿਰਦੁ ਸਦਾਏ ਇਕੁ ਤਿਲੁ ਨਹੀ ਭੰਨੈ ਘਾਲੇ ॥ It is the Lord's natural way to purify sinners; He does not overlook even an iota of service. Only and only SatGuru Patshah jee can do bakshish of such ilaahi prem! Please correct and forgive any mistakes. Mehtab Singh December 27, 2013
