The stork does not fare well in Gurbani. All the Gurus who sing of the stork compare the bird to a fraud, someone making a pretense of meditation and samadhi. So sitting like a stork within the Congregation of the Holy is something of a joke for Guruji. ਇਕਿ ਅਪਣੈ ਸੁਆਇ ਆਇ ਬਹਹਿ ਗੁਰ ਆਗੈ ਜਿਉ ਬਗੁਲ ਸਮਾਧਿ ਲਗਾਈਐ ॥੩॥ eik apanai suaae aae behehi gur aagai jio bagul samaadhh lagaaeeai ||3|| Some come for their own purposes, and sit before the Guru; they pretend to be in Samaadhi, like storks with their eyes closed. ||3||
