Bhai Dhanna jee was a simple hearted farmer.

One day, Bhai Dhanna jee was passing a pundit's house who was feeding his thakur - a stone idol. Bhai Dhanna jee was quite perplexed by this. So Bhai Dhanna jee asked the pundit, "What are you doing?"

The pundit was kind of hungry and wanted to get this feeding over as soon as possible and really wasn't in a mood for Bhai Dhanna jee's simple inquiries.

He replied, "Oh, nothing, just feeding my thakur. Now if you will excuse me..."

Bhai Dhanna jee found that incredibly funny, "What use is feeding a stone?"

Pundit, "That is not a stone, it is God."

"Really?! What does God give you if you feed it?"

Pundit: "Everything. Now, I really must ask you to leave..."

Bhai Dhanna jee liked this idea of giving a little food and getting back everything. So Bhai Dhanna jee asked the pundit if he could also have a thakur.

At this time, the pundit's stomach was audibly complaining about lack of food. So he hastily picked up the nearest stone off the ground and said, "Here. First feed it, then you eat. Goodbye."

Saying that the pundit dived into the food left over by thakur. Bhai Dhanna jee held the stone closely and hurried home.

As soon as Bhai Dhanna jee got home, Bhai Dhanna jee cooked the best meal - saag and makkee di roti - for dinner. He placed it in front of thakur and said, "Here thakur jee, please eat. Afterwards, I want to discuss many things with you. I need a new cow fo

r example, but for now, please eat."

Saying that Bhai Dhanna jee sat in front of thakur and waited. And waited. And waited.

After a while, Bhai Dhanna jee said, "Look thakur, I really have no time for your play. Come and eat at once! I have many chores to do."

After several hours, Bhai Dhanna jee was thinking that perhaps thakur jee was annoyed at him. So Bhai Dhanna jee tried to persuade thakur jee to forgive him: "Look here thakur, I haven't eaten in a while. Now it is entirely possible that I have done something to annoy you but believe you me, we can discuss this much better after this saag and makkee dee roti is in our stomachs."

Slowly the night deepened. Bhai Dhanna jee said, "Look thakur, I have one nerve left and you are dancing on it. Either eat your food or I will....", Bhai Dhanna jee couldn't really think of anything so he just stomped his foot in anger.

Pretty soon, it became daylight. Now Bhai Dhanna jee was quite disoriented. Sometimes Bhai Dhanna jee would curse thakur, sometimes Bhai Dhanna jee would hug thakur and sometimes Bhai Dhanna jee would starting crying.

Two long and hungry nights passed in this manner. Then at amrit vela on the third day, when Bhai Dhanna jee was too weak to curse any more, Vaahi-guroo jee decided to do the thing Vaahi-guroo jee does best - play.

Vaahi-guroo jee appeared inside the stone. It was the most beautiful body of a young man. Bhai Dhanna lost all his anger and just gaped at Vaahi-guroo jee.

Vaahi-guroo jee stepped out of the stone and said, "Bhai Dhanna jee, sorry, I am late - had to deal with a couple of universe creations - but would you be kind enough to warm up this saag and makkee dee Vaahi-guroo jee and went to the farm.

Bhai Dhanna jee fell head over heels in love with Vaahi-guroo jee. He couldn't resist being with Vaahi-guroo jee. They spent the next few days literally arm in arm. Even at night, Bhai Dhanna jee would hold Vaahi-guroo jee's hand and listen

to Vaahi-guroo jee songs - Vaahi-guroo jee sang a lot - and would drift off to sleep.

A week later, the pundit was passing Bhai Dhanna jee's hut. Bhai Dhanna jee saw him and ran to him and said, "Oh, pundit jee, you wonderful man, thank you so much for that thakur..."

Pundit, "What??? Oh, yeah, sure, anytime. Look, I am in a hurry. I am going to the conference KPPARR (Keeping Poor Poor And Rich Rich)."

Bhai Dhanna jee: "But please come and drink some lassi. Thakur jee makes the best lassi."

Pundit: "What now? Thakur jee makes something?"

Bhai Dhanna jee: "Oh, the best stuff. Look at him, how beautiful he is."

Pundit jee looked and indeed some was pushing the cows on the farm. And yet there was nobody to be seen.

Pundit jee: "Who is that?"

Bhai Dhanna jee: "Why, that is thakur jee, of course. Oh, you should hear him sing..."

Pundit jee was quited intrigued by now. And repeatedly asked Bhai Dhanna jee about Thakur jee. After a while Bhai Dhanna jee realized that Pundit could not see Thakur jee. Bhai Dhanna jee promised that he would talk to Thakur jee about this.

The pundit left. Bhai Dhanna jee went to Vaahi-guroo jee and said, "Thakur jee, how come pundit jee can't see you?"

Vaahi-guroo jee: "The pundit jee really doesn't want to see me. He is more interested in my maid - Maya."

Bhai Dhanna jee: "But I don't understand. How can one see you?"

Vaahi-guroo jee: "One has to become pure. And in this age, Dhanna jee, the only way to become pure is by reciting naam."

Bhai Dhanna jee: "Naam?"

Vaahi-guroo jee: "Naam is the magic of this age. Even a few minutes of naam will bring the magic that is needed to see me."

Bhai Dhanna jee: "But, I haven't recited naam. How come I can see you?"

Vaahi-guroo jee, at that point, touched Bhai Dhanna jee's forehead. Bhai Dhanna jee's surat went inside. Inside he saw that he, Bhai Dhanna jee, had done heavy tapasa

ya for over 100 lifetimes. He had stood in water all night and in the hot sun all day. He had hung upside down for several lifetimes. He had been a celibate in one lifetime and a moni (ones who don't talk) in another. But he had progressed spiritually very little.

Then in his previous life, he had met an adept guru who had given him naam. And by doing naam for just one lifetime, Bhai Dhanna jee had become pure.

Seeing Vaahi-guroo jee was the reward for his naam from previous life.

Bhai Dhanna jee fell at Vaahi-guroo jee's feet and cried. Saying, "Please forgive this fool, I treated you as an equal..."

Vaahi-guroo jee picked him and held him close, singing songs of comfort, "Bhai Dhanna jee, now the time is right to leave. The way you see me now is the superficial way of meeting me. The real way is inside. Now you must start naam again and then I will meet you inside."

Saying that Vaahi-guroo jee vanished into thin air. Bhai Dhanna jee was enlightened now, else he would cursed Vaahi-guroo jee. Immediately he started naam with each breath.

Within days, Bhai Dhanna jee met Vaahi-guroo jee in Vaahi-guroo jee's real form - the formless one - inside.

I really think anyone who dont know about the story of Dhanna , should listen to it.. here's the link


I found the story posted above a little twisted by the author, like "Waheguroo didnt say . He was busy with creating universes", but he said, Dhanna, if you didnt food for two days, even i didnt eat food for two days.."

Also, In the end waheguroo promised Dhanna to give him darshan anytime he wanted...

The story of Dhanna is also written in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee, and also some verses are said from it in aarti

I am just confused abt idol worshiping and dhanna jatt.Can somebdy please elaborate how dhanna jatt's worship was not idol worship?

i m sorry if I offended anybdy

Dhanna Jatt was illiterate compared to the literate pandit who worshipped idols ,

dhanna had firm faith that thakur will eat his food, it wasnt idol worship.

this story is about faith and love

That story above has been fashioned differently, but the main even that took place is that Bhagat Dhanna ji was given a stone by a pundit and he did cook food for that stone and stayed hungry for few days, n finally god appeared before him.

The reason behind god appearing before Bhagat Dhanna ji was not because he worshipped a stone, rather the pure and innocent mind he had which made his devotion for god fall on a stone. And that stone/idol became an excuse for his innocent love to flourish. It was love of bhagat dhanna ji that made god take sirgun forum.

    • First thing, these types of situations aren't anything new to the panth. Second thing, if we don't do different moves to previous ones, how can we expect outcomes to be different? Plus, if he's put his head up above the parapet like that, I'm sure he full well knows where it can go.  I'm sure he's not naive.    They should break out all those people who have been imprisoned for Waheguru knows how long, well after their sentences were completed. Actually that should have been done a long time ago. 
    • Hello everyone! Its a been a minute...How you been? Guess i am back because H*ndus are out full force wanting to k*ll Sikhs ..... We are facing turmoil.... Meanwhile on twitter they going insanse with their genocide threats memes etc I dont even know anymore what there is left.....sick and tired facing injustices  Either Amritpal will be k*illed of or an 'accident' like Deep Sidhu  Its insane last 3 years have been like we are in the same ditch cycle  @dallysingh101 @californiasardar1 @Kaurr @MisterrSingh (and rest i can't remember)
    • There is a lot of false media , false allegations , false whereabouts of Bhai Amritpal Singh. A person who has taken a step , to devote is life in helping :- 1. Those who on drugs 2. A lifeline for those Mothers who see there children ,dosed up in Drugs  3. Telling them to take amrit , do meditation , do seva , read gurbani 4. Stand up for your rights 5. Get together as a kaum  6. Speaking up against atrocities carried out on the minorities   He is deemed as a threat to Punjab , for his actions . How low can the Police , MPs, the leadshership in India go . They are very threatened by Bhai Amritpal Singhs mindset , a mindset to free the Sikhs , and unravel the corruption behind Indias politics.  May waheguru keep Bhai Amritpal Singh in chardikala and give him strength to fight against injustices and wake up the Kaum worldwide regardless of ones background.  
    • There's bus service called Indo-Canadian operating from Delhi to main cities of Punjab (like Ludhiana). Never tried it but I know people who have and heard it's quite safe and stops along the way at restaurants. From Ludhiana, you can take a local bus to Moga city and book a hotel (don't know much about Punjab hotels as I never stayed in one). You can book online for the bus.  I've travelled to Punjab for a long time, as a local of that area, it's perfectly safe. Just take normal pre-cautions. Local shop food in Punjab is safe to eat if you can handle oil, masala's, etc.  You don't have to worry about being targeted because of being Sabat Soorat. Seen plenty of Sabat Soorat men and Nihangs and no one targets them. Police are not an issue, they don't bother anyone whose trying to get by their life normally. You can keep a few hundred rupees in your pocket just in case you do get into trouble with them in an unlikely incident.  To blend in, Try to dress like a local. Wear a white Kurta-Pajama or simple western clothing  Pretend you're just visiting from another Indian or Punjab city (don't tell people you're from abroad as you can get overcharged for cheap things) Communicate in local Punjabi as much as possible or speak in an Indian accent if you can't. But some NRI's have accents that give it away easily.  Bargain when you're buying things (apart from food places or if the shop specifically says "fixed price"). Bargaining is great and you can bring down the price by half.  Lastly, just enjoy your stay, there's a lot of history to explore in Punjab too apart from the mainstream/popular places like Wagah border, Harmandir Sahib or Chandigarh.
