Re: How important is Matha Tekking?
Because SIKHS believe in HUKM....and HUKM doesnt change....HE makes all HUKM.Period.
Even when a SIKH has the ability to see into the Future..HUKM still holds firm...In Guru Arjun jis time there was a sikh who wanted to learn about HUKM..Guru ji sent him to Bhai ferus house..on arrival he found preparations going on for a wedding...on asking about the whereabouts of Bhai feru ji..he was told he was in a room...and upon entering the room he was shocked to discover that Bahi feru was preparing a Kaffan. For who is that ? OH its for my son who's getting married tomorrow and who will then die returning home form his wedding...and what are you doing to alter that ?? NOTHING..I ma preparing to follow HUKM. and it came to pass that exactly that happened..first Bhai feru attended the wedding of his only son..was happy along with everyone else...and then coming back home the son died suddenly...and Bhai feru used the kaffan he had already prepared..he wasnt unduly happy or unduly sad..as its all in HIS HUKM.
Should Bhai feru had "prayed" for his sons life to be extended ?? For a long happy married life ?? upset the HUKM ?? A SIKH always lives life in SHUKRANNA..thanksgiving ONLY.....following HUKM all the way...Worldly prayers for riches..beautiful wives or 72 virgins after death..heavens, or avoiding hells..etc etc..have no place in TRUE GURMATT because HE PROVIDES the BEST always...ALWAYS...!! Bin bollian sabh kich jaanta..He KNOWS !! ALWAYS whats BEST....the Begging prayer is superflous...SHUKRANNA always.
