Guru Nanak Dev JiPosted: November 24, 2007
Today is Guru Nanak Dev Ji Janma Tithi … Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, one of those Eternally Free … those who come to this world to teach us … people like us, who are still either trying to find our way out, or not even trying.
Has been said … The True Guru shall lead you to the path of Enlightenment. As Sri Yogananda Paramahansa was told, that His Guru was yet to come … that, there is The Guru, who shall delight you with the Eternal Peace … acquaint you with the Eternal. And, take you on your journey.
As Sri Ramakrishna said … there are three types of people … the ignorant, whome He equated with the fish who, when caught in the fisherman’s net, burrow into the mud, and think they are safe, then there are the striving, whome He equated to those fish who, when caught in the net, try hard to come out and break free (some succeed, others dont …), then there are the Eternally Free … those who refuse to get trapped in the net. The True Guru shall be Eternally Free … Those who come upon this world to guide us … at the least, who who are seeking, who are striving …
But shall we strive, shall we seek the Ultimate Answers on the foundation of violence? Shall we not find liberation in love? For, what we seek is Eternal Love. Or, shall we believe violence and intolerance will liberate us? The Teachings of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji tell us that the only way to liberation is Eternal Love … and, attain that we must. Or, shall we have lived in vain?
