    Thousands of Sikhs visit Vancouver temple for 'miracle' Holy Book

    Dear Friends,
    Gur Fateh

    The salvation of SGGS from the fire to be presented as miracle and a double miracle and people flocking to see this miracle points to the fact that we are steeped in superstitions and are reluctant to understand that the real miracle of SGGS is not its form but its message and it would really be a miracle if we could read it with love and respect and follow it to transfom our lives.Must I point out that there have been other incidents involving fire or water where SGGS birs have been damaged or destroyed.
    Guru's Word is never damaged or destroyed.

    The Guru's Word abides with my soul.

    It does not sink in water; thieves cannot steal it, and fire cannot burn it. ||1||Pause||

    It is like wealth to the poor, a cane for the blind, and mother's milk for the infant.

    In the ocean of the world, I have found the boat of the Lord; the Merciful Lord has bestowed His Mercy upon Nanak. ||2||1||32||

    May Akal Purkh bless us that we are able to understand that:

    Gurbani is the Light to illuminate this world; by His Grace, it comes to abide within the mind. ||1||

    Respectfully,
    Satnam Singh Randhawa

    The truth is that we are spiritual beings living in a physical body. Gurbani speaks directly to the soul. It is amazing how rare such writings are like SGGS in this entire universe which connect us with the Shabad from which we all originate.

    The saints have repeatedly said that Amrit is something real and solid. It is the Water of Immortality, which lies hidden and buried within the depths of the soul.
