THOSE SOULS ARE GREAT WHO MOULD THEMSELVES BY FOLLOWING THE PATH AND TEACHINGS OF GURU JI.

 

BABA MANJH JI WAS BORN IN 17TH CENTURY WHEN THE THEN MUGHAL EMPEROR JAHANGIR WAS IN THE RULING POWER. ON THE OTHER SIDE, THE FIFTH GURU, SRI GURU ARJUN DEVI JI WAS THE ON THE GADDI OF SRI GURU NANAK DEV JI.

 

BABA MANJH WAS KNOWN AS A FAMOUS, RICH, PROSPEROUS AND A BIG LANDLORD OF ‘DOABA’ WHO WORSHIPPED ‘SAKHI-SARVAR’, BUT DIDN’T GET ANY SATISFACTION AND PEACE IN THAT. HE WAS IN SEARCH OF A REAL TRUTH AND PEACE. ONCE HE GOT AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE ‘DARSHAN’ OF SRI GURU ARJUN DEV JI, WHERE HE FELT A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE WITH SANGAT. HE REQUESTED GURU ARJUN DEV JI TO MAKE HIM A ‘SIKH’. GURU JI WARNED HIM THAT THE WAY TO SIKHISM IS NOT SO EASY. IT IS LIKE A WALK ON A SWORD. BUT BABA JI SHOWED GREAT ENTHUSIASM & DEVOTION TO FOLLOW EACH & EVERY CONDITION.

 

HE LEFT HIS FAMILY AND DONATED HIS PROPERTY AND WEALTH IN CHARITY FOR THE SAKE OF GURUJI’S BLESSINGS. HE STARTED TO SPENT HIS TIME IN ‘SEWA’ (SERVICE WITHOUT PAYMENT), i.e., TO FETCH WATER, FUEL, TO CLEAN UTENSILS TO PREPARE FOOD IN COMMUNITY KITCHEN (LANGAR). HE USED TO HAVE HIS MEALS IN THE COMMUNITY KITCHEN AFTER DOING SEWA. BUT GURU JI ORDERED HIM NOT TO TAKE HIS MEALS IN THEIR LANGAR. SO HE STARTED SELLING OFF SOME FIRE WOODS IN THE MARKET IN ORDER TO ARRANGE HIS OWN FOOD.

 

ONE DAY BABA MANJH JI WAS IN FOREST TO COLLECT FIRE WOODS. HE COLLECTED WOODS IN A BUNDLE AND STARTED HEADING TOWARDS SRI HARMANDIR SAHIB JI HURRIEDLY. BUT WITH THE STRONG STROKES OF WIND HE LOST HIS WAY AND HE GOT PLUNGED IN WIND. THERE WAS A DEEP WELL (IN THE AREAS OF SULTANWIND CHATIWIND GATE) ON THE WAY WHICH WAS NOT IN USE. BABA JI FELL INTO THAT. BUT HE KEPT HIS FIRM GRIP OVER THE FIRE WOODS, WAS CARRYING ON HIS HEAD. ON THE OTHER SIDE SRI GURU ARJUN DEV JI HAD A FEELING ABOUT THIS INCIDENT. HE IMMEDIATELY ALONG WITH HIS SIKHS RUSHED TOWARDS THAT WELL. THEN GURU JI ASKED BABA JI TO COME OUT WITH THE HELP OF SUPPORT. BUT BABA JI REQUESTED THEM TO PULL OUT THAT BUNDLE FIRST WHICH WAS NECESSARY FOR THE LANGAR. AFTER THAT BUNDLE HE WAS OUT AND GURU JI EMBRACED HIM AFFECTIONATELY AND BLESSED BABA JI BY SAYING
