    Waheguru ji ka khalsa
    Waheguru ji ki fateh

    Guru Har Rai Sahib ji de prakash purab di beant vadhai hoveh ji.

    Sakhi - Guru Har Rai Sahib ji

    One day during a ride, the Guru ji halted and knocked at the door of a poor woman and said, "Good lady, I am very hungry, bring me the bread you have prepared." The woman, throbbing with joy, brought out some coarse bread which he partook on horseback, without washing his hands, and relished it very much. He then blessed the woman and cut off the shackles of her transmigration.

    Next day the Sikhs prepared dainty dishes with great attention to cleanliness and offered them to the Guru at the same hour. He laughed and said, "O Sikhs, I ate food from that woman's hands because she was holy. This food which you have prepared with attention to ancient ceremonial is not pleasing to me." The Sikhs asked, " O true king, yesterday you ate bread on horseback from the hands of an old woman whom you did not know. There was no consecrated space and the food was in every way impure. Today we have prepared the food for you; no impurity is attached to it, yet you reject it. Be kind enough to explain the reason."

    The Guru replied, " The woman with great devotion and faith prepared food for me out of what she had earned from the sweat of her brow. On this account the food was very pure, and I partook of it. The Guru is hungry for love and not for dainty dishes. In the matter of love for God, no rule is recognized. It is not what man eats that pleases God, it is man's devotion that is acceptable to Him."

    Sakhi Series: 43 ( Guru Nanak and Bebe Nanaki ji's Roti)



    Whenever Bibi Nanaki would remember her brother, he would come meet her right away. (Panth Prakash)

    Bebe Nanaki, the esteemed sister of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib, never sent telegrams and letters to her brother. Her loving remembrance was enough for instant response by the most adorable and lovable Sri Guru Nanak Sahib. True prem, True love cuts across all the barriers and limitations of time and space.

    The Lord, the Guru thirsts and hungers badly for one commodity only and that is this rare and unique Prema.

    "Gobind Bhao Bhagat Da Bhookha" - Bhai Gurdas Ji

    When Guru Nanak Dev ji was going away on one of the Udaasii's, Bebe Nanaki asked Guru Nanak how will I live without seeing my dear brother? Guru Nanak Dev Ji replied, 'O dear sister, whenever you shall think of me I shall come to visit you'.


    Once When Bebe Nanaki ji was making parshade's (roti's) one night, "Parshada full gaya" ( sorry don't know how to say it in English!!) and she remembered how Guru Nanak ji loved " fulle hoye parshade"… she just thought how I wish my brother would come to eat this rotis I am making. Right at that very moment Guru Nanak Sahib ji walked in and said I'm so hungry. Guru Ji graced her with his presence and had the roti's she had made with so much pyaar.

    Nowadays we communicate to people through mobile phones and by text messaging one another. It is expected that if you send a text message to a good friend, that he or she will reply to your text message. Now if we text messaged Vaheguru, then we would expect Vaheguru, who is our friend, our companion or beloved, to text back.

    Simran is a form of text messaging on a spiritual level. If we text message Vaheguru, then Vaheguru will definitely text message us back. However, our message can only be received to the person we are sending it to, if we have reception. If our phone doesn't have any reception, then despite how many text messages we send, the recipient will not receive any of the messages we send. Similarly if we have no 'pyaar', love, for Vaheguru Ji, then our Simran will not be counted for and we will not be able to experience the Lord.

    "Saach K'ho Sun Leho Sabhai, Jin Prem Kiyo Tin Hee Prabh Paayo…. Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji

    Listen everyone I speak the truth, only those who have love will experience Vaheguru, God."
