NEVER FORGET THE GIVER
NEVER FORGET THE GIVER • 'He the Giver is forever Alive and Awake. ' (Gauri Bavan Akhri, M. 5 : • 'God's gifts cannot be evaluated, • so how then shall we evaluate the Giver? ' (Gauri Deepaki, M. 1: • Guru Nanak jee's path is strewn with flowers and song and is full of the amrit flavour.
• A father gives money to his child to go and buy some things. • The child meets his friends and tells everyone its his own money and spends it how he wants. • Waheguru jee has given us everything we own, our body, our family and keeps on giving moment after moment. • The children never thank their Father, the Giver, but fool themselves by saying everything belongs to them - earn by their own hard work.
• Sat. Guru Nanak Dev jee has been sent by the Giver to make the children understand, to shine a light into the dirt and the darkness the children are living in. • And what does Satguru jee tell us in Jap jee Sahib everyday : • 'Gura ik deh buja-ee , • Sabna jee-a ka ik data so ma visar na jaa-ee' • 'Understand this one most important gift from Satguru jee: • I must never forget the Giver who gives to all creatures'
• But what do you gain by Never forgetting the Giver? • Well remember the story of Guru Nanak Dev jee working as a shopkeeper, Satguru jee counted out 12 items and on saying Thera (means 13 and Yours) went into a Divine Rapture and sang the song of one word in Divine Bliss: • 'Thera Thera Thera Thera Thera Thera Thera
• Why don't you try an experiment - today just see everything as belonging to the Giver. • Say Thera in your mind when you see your hands, when you see your wife/mum/brother, say Thera when you see the car, say Thera when you see the sky. • When you start worrying about your problems say Thera - ask Satguru Nanak jee take them leaving you to say Thera. • Then when the ugly feeling of mineness has left, and you are feeling humble at Guru Nanak jee's lotus feet, then appreciate the Wonderful wonder all around you by singing Waheguru again and again, forever and ever in loving adoration.
