    • Do you want that your simran may get progress everyday ?
    Simran is your relation with Guru. You would like it to improve everyday. But in practice, you would not care as much for progress. You would just want the blessing to have Simran every moment.
    • For what or why do we do simran everyday ?
    Simran is to quench the hunger of soul. Everyone knows hunger of food, the hunger of soul can be ignored.
    • We do sewa for the progress of our simran, or simran for the progress of sewa ?
    If you live in a house, you have to do some chores around. You can only make your existence in this world worthwhile by doing Sewa. Simran is independent of the need for Sewa.
    • Whenever enlightenment will occur in the life of "Sikh", will occur while doing sewa or simran ?
    If we put seed in the ground, it doesn't mean the plant will sprout. All depends on Nature's rainfall. Similarly Sewa and Simran will keep you grounded, but not ensure enlightenment. Only Guru can.
    • Guru harkrishan sahib, got gurgaddi at the of 13, But like other guru's who are famous for sewa in sikh history, Doing which kind of sewa is guru harkrishan ji is famous for ?
    Guru Harkrishan Sahib ji got Guru Gaddi at age of 5. He spent a lot of time taking care of smallpox affected people in Delhi and died for the same cause at age of 8.

    Sewa makes no one famous. Sewa defines a person. Or maybe not.

    Kanwaljit ji, brilliant image! That one's going on the wall.

    How about SEWA

    Sefless
    Effort
    With
    Awareness

    or

    Selfless
    Effort
    Without
    Accolades

    Chinu ji

    It may be that 'Simran without sewa is lame, seva without simran is blind?'

    They are hand-in-hand concepts.

    Kanwaljit ji has addressed everything wonderfully.
