    There are many ways we do bhagti,

    Bhagat appears in front of Guru/Waheguru in many forms:
    sometimes we consider ourselves to be His children (Him being the father)
    sometimes we consider ourselves to be His friend (Him being our friend)
    sometimes we consider ourselves to be His sibling (Him being our sibling)
    sometimes we consider ourselves to be His bride (Him being the Husband)
    sometimes we consider ourselves to be His sevak ( Him being our Master)
    sometimes we consider ourselves to be His student (Him being the Teacher)
    sometimes we consider ourselves to be the recievers ( Him being the Provider)
    sometimes we consider ourselves to be Papi ( Him being the Bakshan Haar)
    sometimes we consider ourselves to be Kookar(dog) at His Door( Him being the Owner of the House)

    Tu Mera Pita Tu Hai Mera Mata, Tu Mera Bandhap Tu Mera Bhrata, Tu Mera Rakha Sabhni Thaee..........

    Ham Kookar Tere Darbaar



    to be continued,


    humbly asking for everybody's forgiveness

    Sometimes we are the kokil (songbird), and we abide in Him, amb (our Protection and Shelter, the mango tree).

    ਜਬ ਹੀ ਸਰਨਿ ਗਹੀ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਨਿਧਿ ਗਜ ਗਰਾਹ ਤੇ ਛੂਟਾ ॥
    jab hee saran gehee kirapaa nidhh gaj garaah thae shhoottaa ||

    As soon as the elephant took to the protective Sanctuary of the Lord, the ocean of mercy, he escaped from the crocodile.

    Like the elephant mired in the swamp, while the crocodile is pulling him down, we are frightened by the illusions created by our own minds -- until we call out for the protection of Waheguru, The One Who Hears and Liberates.

    This is a really good way to learn. I am liking this very much.
