My Attorney !

Jan 6, 2005
Metro-Vancouver, B.C., Canada

After living what I felt was a "decent" life, my time on earth came to an end.

The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a court house, of Dharam Raj.

The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table.

As I looked around I saw the "prosecutor".

He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me.

He definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen.

I sat down and looked to my left and there sat My Attorney, a kind and gentle looking man whose appearance seemed so familuar to me, I felt I knew Him.

The corner door flew open and there appeared the Judge in full flowing robes.

He commanded an awesome presence as He moved across the room I couldn't take my eyes off of Him.

As He took His seat behind the bench, He said "Let us begin."

The prosecutor rose and said, "My name is Kaljug and I am here to show you why this man belongs in hell."

He proceeded to tell lies that I told, things that I stole, and in the past when I cheated others. Kaljug told of other horrible Perversions that were once in my life and the more he spoke, the further down in my seat I sank.

I was so embarrassed that I couldn't look at anyone, even my own Attorney, as the Devil told of sins that even I had completely forgotten about.

As upset as I was at Kaljug for telling all these things about me, I was equally upset at My Attorney who sat there silently not offering any form of defense at all.

I know I had been guilty of those things, but I had done some good in my life-couldn't that at least equal out part of the harm I'd done?

Kaljug finished with a fury and said, "This man belongs in hell, he is guilty of all that I have charged and there is not a person who can prove otherwise."

When it was His turn, My Attorney first asked if He might approach the bench.

The Judge allowed this over the strong objection of Kaljug, and beckoned Him to come forward.

As He got up and started walking, I was able to see Him in His full splendor and majesty.

I realized why He seemed so familar; this was My GURU JI representing me, my Lord and my Savior.

He stopped at the bench and softly said the the Judge, "Hi Dad," and then He turned to address the court.

"Kaljug was correct in saying this man had sinned, I won't deny any of these allegations.

And, yes, the wage of sin is death & rebirth, and this man deserves to be punished."

Guru JI took a deep breath and turned to His Father with outstretched arms and proclaimed, "However, I sacrified my entire family so that this person might
have eternal life and he has accepted Me & My Banni as his Savior, so he is Mine."

My GURU JI continued with, "His name is written in the book of life and no one can snatch him from Me.

Kaljug still does not undertsand yet. This man is not to be given justice, but rather mercy."

As GURU JI sat down,

He quietly paused, looked at His Father and said, "There is nothing else that needs to be done. I've done it all."

The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down.
The following words bellowed from His lips...

"This man is free."

"The penalty for him has already been paid in full.

Cases dismissed."

As my GURU JI led me away, I could hear Kaljug ranting and raving, "I won't give up, I will win the next!"

"Have You ever lost a case ?", I asked.

GURU JI lovingly smiled and said,

"Everyone that has come to Me and asked Me to represent them has received the same verdict as you,

This was a nice read, but i duuno why, i kinda got this nagging feeling that's it's not entirely in line with a Gurmat way of thinking.

The idea of Guru Ji arguing our case sounds a bit christian or islamic in it's way thinking, where if you profess this prophet to be your saviour, they will tip the balance for you.

Rather, for a Sikh it would be that Guru Ji has gifted us with Dhur Ki Bani to give us a fighting chance against Kaljug and the 5 Thieves. The rest is up to us. Our karams (both good and bad) will be the only things to decide which dirction our soul will travel in.
