It is not knowledge in books which gives anyone credibility and courage to write about Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. He is not a fiction that one can write about Him with great imagination. It is not merely facts which make anyone to write about Him as He is not confided to ‘Logic and Rationality’. It is not philosophy which helps anyone to write about Him as He is not restricted to some set of beliefs. So does it mean no one can write about Him? No everyone who is under His grace and willing to surrender his emotions, cannot escape the act of writing about Him.
Anyone who has those emotions, Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Himself encourages him to write. He Himself gives so much courage, credibility, understanding and ability to an individual that one can write about Him. It is like He requests him to do so. No one can deny His request (This signifies His humbleness that all powerful and The Great Guru requests rather than order) not because of fear of Him but because of sheer unimaginable and unlimited love. Bhai Nand Lal without His blessings could have not written a single word about Him. They were so great, they were such souls, that He Himself gave them chance to serve Him. What were they? They were just the most profound emotions and intense meaningful love for Him which are beyond comprehension of mortals like us. Emotions are the key since emotions have almost the same depth as Him. Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji has HIMSELF said:
‘ਜਿਨ ਪਰੇਮ ਕੀਓ ਤਿਨ ਹੀ ਪਰਭ ਪਾਇਓ‘
(Only the one who is absorbed in True Love shall attain the Lord)
This work started with an urge to write about Him, a desire to know Him, an effort to understand Him and finally it came out as just an emotion called ‘Love of Mortal’ for Him. A man, who is just an ignorant, is blessed to write. Perhaps this will be perceived as love. But love is pure and how impurity like me can possess it. Humans perceive love in a relationship but I share such a relation with HIM which even I don’t know and now I don’t want to know. I have realized that if I am in dilemma of any sort, He bears the tension. And if He is worried for my well-being then why should I be bothered. Thus somehow He makes me feel relaxed. Again I will emphasizes it is, not knowing that matters but it is love which definitely does.
Initially I forced myself to write about Him, trying giving words to my thoughts, but eventually ‘words’ came to me by His grace. Just to show my sincerity, I involved Him in my trivial actions.Well, that was childish of me but that’s how it began. My foolishness can never be subdued, until He decides otherwise. Being a fool and fool I will be, will keep committing actions under complete naivety.
Then came the phase, when I started imagining myself being farthest from Him. I just believed that it would help me to remember Him. How? Again, a child seeks for things kept away from him, he becomes desperate for it. Farther he is away from thing of his interest, harder he will try to get near it. But he does not realize Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji is never far. He is the nearest an individual can ever discover, and he is just under influence of ignorance.
