Asking material favors from gurus' pictures

It is true what you say brother, but what else can one expect from the weak  moorakh mankind manmukhs .

In each Ang, Sree Guru Granth Sahib tells us what type of devotion we must do, but for that no one pays attention, rather they do what they see others doing, in terms of exteriority.

For example, the Bani says in Prabh ka Simran, are all fruits of any external practices, but still, hardly anyone pays attention to it and puts into practice.

People still like going on pilgrimages, sacred waters, hill stations, jap, tap, pooja, patth, incense, lamps, fast recitations as if there is a speed competition.

Just tell me, when one is in the company of the beloved, does one like to talk fast and finish quickly, or for example, when one goes to watch a movie in the theatre,  do they play the movie so fast that instead of 90 or 120 minutes its finishes in 60 minutes, without anything being understood...

If not so, then why when it comes to His devotion in doing any patth, people want to finish as soon as possible from  a few hours, into even lesser time... Is it not a shameful act?

Has ever Wahiguru told anybody to do patth without love or sharda, but do it as a matter of duty to shake off,  or like some work in the office, or shop, or any other place we may be working.

The Bani clearly says: "awar kaaj tere kitay na kaam, mil Sadh Sangat, bhaj kewal Naam".

Inspite knowing this, but what do we people do usually, well we prefer to work the body with penances or hardships and austerities, inflicting torture to the body, foolishly thinking He will be pleased with these actions ...

We forget, or better said, we prefer to overlook the Bani, and put our manmat into it. If only we had put into practice the precise instructions of the perfect beings, Guru Sahiban, we would not be derailed away from Sikhee.

We must keep in mind, only Wahiguru and His Naam, are the permanent eternal unchangeable Truth, and as long as we do not turn our faces towards it, through the true and correct devotion, the source of all true wisdom and  bliss, we shall blindly remain deeply engrossed in maya for sure, and thus in the wheel of transgrimation with our strong manmat.

Poor foolish beings ....

Sat Sree Akal.

    • Very interesting it's just used a lot by others like the sun disk of Egypt etc. Have not seen it myself used in Sikhi before today.
    • This was a common motif/symbol in Sikhi and is still utilised by the Dal Panth. The Surya or Suraj is a reference to the dynasty (Suryavanshi) which Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji and therefore the Khalsa Panth belongs to as mentioned in Bachittar Natak and other texts. ਜਾਂ ਦਿਨ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਛਕਤ ਯਹਿ, ਰਹਤ ਨ ਪਿਛਲੀ ਜਾਤਿ । On that day when you take Amrit [Khandey Di Pahul], the commandment is that you do not have a previous Caste. ਜ੍ਯੋਂ ਭ੍ਰਿੰਗੀ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਕੀਟ ਤੈ, ਤ੍ਯੋਂ ਸਿਖ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਗੁਰੁ ਜਾਤਿ ॥੨੪॥ In the same way a Bhringi, which transforms a [low] insect into a beautiful butterfly, a Sikh turns [beautiful] and adopts the Gurus Caste. ਸੂਰਜ ਬੰਸੀ ਦਸਮ ਗੁਰੁ, ਛੱਤ੍ਰੀ ਭਏ ਪ੍ਰਸਿੱਧ । The Tenth Guru is from the Suraj Bans (Surya Vansh Lineage), the famous Kshatriya caste. ਯਾਹੀਂ ਤੇ ਸਭਿ ਖਾਲਸਾ, ਛੱਤ੍ਰੀ ਬਰਣ ਅਬਿੱਧ ॥੨੫॥ In this way all the Khalsa turn into one of Kshastriya. [Naveen Panth Prakash, pg. 1581, Vol. 3]     ^ a Surajmukhi emblem being carried with Guru Sahibs entourage.     ^ The same emblem being used by the Nihangs today     ^ On the hilt of a Sikh Shastar     ^ A battle standard from the Sikh Empire with a Surya   ^ Surya logo   Gurbar Akaal!
