    Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa
    Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh

    Sangat ji,
    A couple of weeks ago I took a very important test for getting into school. I did well on it. So well in fact that my ahankaar nearly got the best of me and I almost made a couple of bad decisions. I wanted to celebrate, and not without good reason. With this in mind, I was wondering if anyone knew any bani particularly about this subject. When it comes down to it, all great works are works of Vaheguru, but are we not entitled to some of the pleasure of a job well done? Where is the balance? Obviously a building cannot go up if the concrete foundation doesn't harden, which only happens because god set up the chemistry to do so; but the building isn't self-assembling. I have to imagine there is a healthy level of pride that doesn't boil over into ahankaar. Thoughts, sangat ji?
