"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.

    • The most stupidist idiotic thing I heard. Disgusting.
    • Two wrongs together dont make a right. You will probably mislead her and make her rebel against her parents.
    • Just do EXACTLY as your parents say. When you grow up you will understand why they were right. if you dont listen to them now, you will likely spend your entire life regretting what u did.
    • Look at it this way - if we theoretically say yes one can take birth again as a Sikh, how will that affect their Simran now? Also if one takes birth again how will they remember that they are supposed to do Simran? What will stop them from asking this question again? http://sttm.co/s/48/524 ਭਈ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਮਾਨੁਖ ਦੇਹੁਰੀਆ ॥ bhiee paraapat maanukh dhehureeaa || This human body has been given to you. ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਮਿਲਣ ਕੀ ਇਹ ਤੇਰੀ ਬਰੀਆ ॥ gobi(n)dh milan kee ieh teree bareeaa || This is your chance to meet the Lord of the Universe. ਅਵਰਿ ਕਾਜ ਤੇਰੈ ਕਿਤੈ ਨ ਕਾਮ ॥ avar kaaj terai kitai na kaam || Nothing else will work. ਮਿਲੁ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਭਜੁ ਕੇਵਲ ਨਾਮ ॥੧॥ mil saadhasa(n)gat bhaj keval naam ||1|| Join the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy; vibrate and meditate on the Jewel of the Naam. ||1|| ਸਰੰਜਾਮਿ ਲਾਗੁ ਭਵਜਲ ਤਰਨ ਕੈ ॥ sara(n)jaam laag bhavajal taran kai || Make every effort to cross over this terrifying world-ocean. ਜਨਮੁ ਬ੍ਰਿਥਾ ਜਾਤ ਰੰਗਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਕੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ janam birathaa jaat ra(n)g maiaa kai ||1|| rahaau || You are squandering this life uselessly in the love of Maya. ||1||Pause|| ਜਪੁ ਤਪੁ ਸੰਜਮੁ ਧਰਮੁ ਨ ਕਮਾਇਆ ॥ jap tap sa(n)jam dharam na kamaiaa || I have not practiced meditation, self-discipline, self-restraint or righteous living. ਸੇਵਾ ਸਾਧ ਨ ਜਾਨਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਇਆ ॥ sevaa saadh na jaaniaa har raiaa || I have not served the Holy; I have not acknowledged the Lord, my King. ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਮ ਨੀਚ ਕਰੰਮਾ ॥ kahu naanak ham neech kara(n)maa || Says Nanak, my actions are contemptible! ਸਰਣਿ ਪਰੇ ਕੀ ਰਾਖਹੁ ਸਰਮਾ ॥੨॥੪॥ saran pare kee raakhahu saramaa ||2||4|| O Lord, I seek Your Sanctuary; please, preserve my honor! ||2||4||
