"Lord as Protector"

Recommended Posts

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa! Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Pyaari saadh sangat ji - 

The Ragi singh at our Gurdwara always has a theme every week - last week it was "Lord as Protector"

There were two shabads of Kabir sahib 

"Ganga Kinare Meri Tooti Zanjeer - Mrigshala par baithay Kabir" 

and 

"Prabh Khamb te Niksay Kai Bisthaar, Harnakash chediyo nakh beedaar"

and the couplet from Salok Mehalla 9 

"Bal Shutkiyo Bandhaan Paray - Kachoo Na hoth upaay
Kaho Nanak ab oat har - gaj tio hoh saha-ae"

On the way home my 12 year old son asked - "But then Papa - what happened with Guru Arjan, Guru Tegh Bahadur and Banda Bahadur? - why were they not given the same protection" 

One answer of course is that they wanted to demonstrate "Mitha laaga-e tera bhaana" but wondering if there was another perspective out there for the sewak......

Guru Arjan Dev ji throughout their life qas given protection.there r so many shabads. Like the attack by sulhi, the attacks of prithi chand on their sin guru hargobind sahib ji.

Banda singh bahdur was asked the same question when being tortured by the mughal king. Banda singh said, i am glad to go thru my karm now rather than in afterlife. In wartime, and while tryingto deliver justice, some ppl are wrongfully killed or given a more harsh punishment than they deserve. Through this torture, my karmic debt is being paid off.

Guru Tegh bahadur ji chose shaheedi to help the hindus. Aurangzeb wanted to keep them alive so he could keep torturing them andso he hoped tgey would becomehindu.but if guru ji managed  to die without converting, aurangzeb cant cinvert hibdus as per the deal.

So shaheedi is a mission in life,theyre destiny. To show ppl tge path, and accomplish goals. One does not need protection from that.all 3 of them accepted it and lioked forward to death, where they can ubite with the lord.
