12. Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji – Part 3

Where man’s existence ceases, all his thoughts, evils, virtues, interests, feelings converges to Nothingness, at that coordinate Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji is realized. For mortals like us, we always keep ourselves first, but for Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, others take precedence. Else ‘Who’ can ask his father to sacrifice for saving beliefs of others? We are just ‘retarded ignorant individuals’ and still He showers His affection on us, forgetting and forgiving our shortcomings. I have begun to realize, by His Grace, the veracity in the following lines by Daulat Rai, an Arya Samaji historian in “Sahibe Kamal Guru Gobind Singh Ji”:

When all the greatness, all the virtues, all the power of Nirankar, ‘The Formless’, came together and combined, then an entity was born. And the entity was none other than Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

And by Bhai Nand Lal:

Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Friend of Withered One’s,

Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Emperor of Emperors,

Guru Gobind Singh Ji, is virtue personified,

Guru Gobind Singh Ji, mystic and king at same time.

So, does it really require a motivation to write about someone ‘Who’ possesses such traits? It just needs a will and ‘Ardas’ and He will come running to grab you:

ਚਰਨ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਗੁਰ ਏਕ ਪੈਂਡਾ ਜਾਇ ਚਲ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕੋਟਿ ਪੈਂਡਾ ਆਗੇ ਹੋਇ ਲੇਤ ਹੈ ||

“चरण शरण  गुर एक पैंडा  जाए  चल , सतगुर  कोट पैंडा आगे होए लेत हैं ||”

(Just take one step towards the feet of Satguru; He will walk million steps to grab you.)

This will fill you emotions, all you need to express your gratitude.

Motivation is just an ephemeral state of mind. An individual who considers Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji as everything, The Completeness, does understand motivation will vanish later or sooner. But Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji is eternity. Motivation is series of impulses but Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji is the continuity that can be perceived at the highest and deepest level by an individual’s spiritual aspect. And such continuity can only be possessed by ‘Wholeness, The Completeness’.

Anything about Him is result of His inspiration, grace and blessings. This again signifies motivation is only a word, whatever happens is His will. He will walk into an individual’s thoughts and ask Himself to do something for Him. He will hold him between His arms; will make an individual so expressive and responsive that he cannot escape the act of writing about Him and His glory. No matter how much one writes about Him, the writings will be incomplete.

An individual can be expressive, like a deluged stream, with tons of emotions in his work, he may exhaust words, he may run out of ideas his mind has to offer, still Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji is ‘Net Net Net Hain, Still more, more and more to go’. Let’s try to understand with an example. Imagine a man’s destiny is awakened and he is blessed by ‘Vision’ of Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. He will fall at His feet after being filled with gratitude and will weep till all his emotions are surrendered to Him. But as soon as he wants to get up he is bound to feel the same urge, but with more intensity. How it happened? Well, the lucky man got filled by Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji again, how can anyone under grace of Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji be lack lustered [1], but this time with more emotions and this will last forever, till the individual becomes ‘True Face of Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Himself’. By the time it happens, an individual bound to become infinite and only ‘An Infinite, An Endless’ can replenish an individual and in this case He is none other than Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
