#GuruNanak : Today, I’m gonna tell you, one short story, abt Guru Gobind, abt Marathi-Sikh.. This one of the vital description I found was in a sikh philosophy: During ramble in Northern India, Guru Hargobind met Samarth Ramdas [Marathi Saint] at Srinagar in about 1634.. Fully armed and riding a horse, the Guru had just returned from an excursion.. Swami Ramdas said to Guru Gobind “Guru Nanak was a Tyagi sadhu – a saint who had renounced the world.. You are wearing arms and keeping an army and horses.. You allow yourself to be addressed as Sacha Patshah, the True King.. What sort of a sadhu are you?” Guru Hargobind replied, “Internally I am a hermit, and externally I am a prince. Arms mean protection to the poor and destruction of the tyrant. Baba Nanak had not renounced the world but had renounced Maya, i.e. self and ego: “batan faquiri, zahir amiri shastar garib ki rakhya, jarwan ki bhakhiya Baba Nanak sansar nahi tyagya, Maya tyagi thi.” These words of Guru Hargobind found a ready response in the heart of Samartha Swami Ramdas who, as quoted in Pothi Panjak Sakhian, spontaneously said, “This appealeth to my mind – Yeh hamare man bhavti hai” I had been in Gurudwara lots of time.. Lovely people arroud, free food all time to everyone, they never ask your religion, your cast or any.. They follow 3 things, 1. Vand chakko: sharing & helping who are in need. 2. Kirat karo: earning without fraud & love selflessly. 3. Naam Japna: meditation. So, Happy Guruparab.. Shubh Guru Nanak Jayanti.. 🙏
