If you were to embark on a Pilgrimage journey, what would you record in your diary to share with us ?

What will you find in the holy places and places of pilgrimage? They have built temples there, is that all ? Temples, mosques, churches, all made after the image of man dome-shaped, forehead-shaped, nose-shaped, etc.

When Guru Nanak was asked to describe the house of the Lord
he described the human form: twelve bastions
(joints of arms and legs) fifty-two turrets (nails and teeth) and two windows (eyes).

Would I require a video camera to understand the perceptions more clearly ?

Kabir Ji once asked God to remove a great doubt that He had in His heart, and that doubt was whether the place of pilgrimage is better than the Lord's servant, the Lord's servant being the Guru. Of course, the Lord's servant is the greater, for the holy place is founded because of Him. If an Awakened Soul sat in ten different places, then all ten became holy; so He is the Great One. The place where Guru Nanak Sahib was born, the village of Talvandi, is now a holy place and has been renamed Nankana Sahib. Guru Nanak once sat under a particular Reta tree, and that tree is now known as Reta Sahib. If you taste its fruit even today, you will find it very sweet and not bitter as the fruit of the Reta normally is.
