Guru Nanak Dev Ji & The Leper

3 posts in this topic

Guru Nanak and the Leper Cured

One day Guru Nanak and Bhai Mardana reached a village in Tehsil Dipalpur of Montgomery district which Is now In Pakistan. It was raining and night was approaching. Bhai Mardana requested Guru Nanak, "If he could go and ask if somebody agrees to give us shelter for the night. Had it not been raining, we would have spent the night In the jungle as usual."

Guru Nanak said, "Bhai Mardana, you may go and ask." Taking leave Bhai Mardana asked the people of the village. Nobody gave them shelter. Everyone refused with this argument, had both of you been hindus, some hindu would have kept you or if both of you were Muslims, a Muslim would have been given you a place to stay but who will keep a hindu and a Muslim in his house?"

Bhai Mardana was coming back when his eyes caught sight of a hut outside the village in which an oil amp was burning. Guru Nanak and Bhai Mardana reached that hut. A leper was living In that hut. He had been turned out of his house by his people, because they thought he was sultering from an Incurable and infectious disease. The people from his house would give him meals In his hut and filled a pitcher of water in the hut for him to drink.

Seeing, Guru Nanak enter his hut the leper said, "Do not come near me. Keep away from me. I am a leper. You will be Infected by my disease." Guru Nanak paid no heed to that. He entered the hut. Bhai Mardana followed him inside. Seeing the leper in great distress, Guru Nanak recited a hymn which the leper understood.

When God is forgotten, the mind becomes sick. When the mind is sick, diseases take root in the body. A man cries due to the sickness of the body because it can be seen and it gives discomfort and pain. The cure for these diseases is to attune the mind to God who has given hands, feet and all the parts of our body. The body has been given for service. Without service the body becomes diseased."

The illusion was lifted from leper's mind that his disease was incurable. He got up and sat down. He kept listening to Guru Nanak's teachings well into night. In the morning leper went to the river for his bath, after taking a bath he felt that he had no disease. Leaving Bhai Mardana in his hut, lepur went to his house. The people at home were amazed to seeing him walking. They asked, "Who has cured you?" Leper said, "Two fakirs who are sitting in my hut." Hearing this, the people of his household. set out to look for the fakirs. The whole village followed them. When the villagers saw the fakirs, they asked forgiveness for the happening of the night before. Guru Nanak said, "I shall be pleased only if you construct a place in the village where travellers may spend the night". The villagers agreed to it.

Guru Nanak and the Leper Cured

One day Guru Nanak and Bhal Mardana reached a village in Tehsil Dipalpur of Montgomery district which Is now In Pakistan. It was raining and night was approaching. Bhal Mardana requested Guru Nanak, "If he could go and ask if somebody agrees to give us shelter for the night. Had it not been raining, we would have spent the night In the jungle as usual."

A very good post Simran Pen Jee,

and from it, the paragraph in blue, is what I most like, though the whole post is good by itself, as it is a sakhee of Dhan Dhan Satguru Nanak Dev Maharaj, Himself.

Sat Sree Akal.

Hanji Paji, it's the paragraph in blue that I put it on for. Glad you recognised that part.

ps: ( the spelling of Bhai Mardana ji is wrong, I've amended it on the original post. )

    •       Why are you playing into her games?  She is being a brat.  She's the little child in the store aisles crying for a chocolate bar.  Ignore her whining and crying.  Go on with your day as a man with strength and show her you don't need her.  Flip the tables, show her, she needs you and the family.  Show her, you and your parents are one unit and will not be broken.    This has nothing to do with marrying a girl from india.  Majority of the women born and/or raised in western countries don't even know how to cook.  Forget about living with the parents after marriage.  Even if they live with the parents, they can't cook roti for the father in law, what use is such a woman, who can't cook for her husband's parents.  Might as well get a maid they are cheaper because they don't take half of your stuff.  All these western girls know is how to spend money on a face mask and body massages by men.  They will gladly take their clothes off for a massage, but will go to kill the father in law if he ask for a cooked meal.  Their priorities are all screwed up.  They gladly take their clothes off for a picture on instragram.  Why do some of these mona who are married to these western girls drink so much?  Because they are upset with themselves for marrying a sl*t.  They couldn't think straight at the time of marrying the bimbo because they were look for the wrong qualities.  Their dad warned them about marrying the girl who gives the milk for free, but they were lost in the face mask.  The grass is not greener on the other side.  If anything it's manure and second hand sloppy joe's.  You can fix your issue.  Best thing you can do is not show you are being hurt by her.  By showing you are hurt, she thinks sooner or later you will give into her demands.  Show her, you can care less of her stupid demands and are happy with living with the family.   Don't scare her or show any sign of violence or  show any sign of any weakness in you.  Many guys have been in your situation. When she ask for something, ask her to do something which she refuses to do.  She says no, walk away and ignore her request.  Children who don't eat their vegetables ask for ice cream, but smart parents don't give them ice cream till the child eats the vegetables and makes it clear, no ice cream till vegetables are done.  She has a roof over her head, bed to sleep on, and food to eat.  Anything extra she ask for is not to be provided.  You are not her servant, she needs to play an equal role in the household to be treated as an equal.  Your parents and you are not their to serve her wants and desires. 
    • Guy's this news seems to be racist but considering Socio-political environment in UK it should be okay. I remember getting stares from Londoners having this t-shirt on.
    • Yes this backwards post is a lot more professional.  Make sure to wipe the dirt off of your knees after leaving your bosses office.  What does your situation have to do with another person's issues?  NOTHING!!!! Stop your crying and whining and take off your wife's dress.  The original poster's wife doesn't want to work and wants to leave the house.  The guy wrote nothing about mother in law being anything.  Yet, you damn dress wearing men target the mother in law?  Your wife's dress is too tight for you take it off, it's making you see things.  With a weak father like you, your kids are going to turn out to be push overs, whether you leave the house or not.  You are the problem, not your dad.  Grow a pair.  If it wasn't for your parents, you wouldn't exist and neither will the fetus in your wife's belly.  Damn you are d*mb.  You must have gone to school to be this stupid, no one is this stupid without going to school for it.  The original poster wrote nothing about his family telling him to disrespect the wife.  Instead his wife is disrespecting his family by being a sloth and mentally abusing the husband into depression and sadness.  My request to you little men with wife's dresses on is to get DNA checks on whose kids you are raising. 
    • With all due respect, as long as he isn't breaking forum rules he should be free to post whatever he wishes. If Jagsaw has seen fit to create a special little enclave on this forum where he can espouse his certain brand of beliefs and delusions to a willing audience, despite being banned, anyone should be free to post whatever they feel to be suitable (within the rules), especially when being directly addressed by the creator of this thread.
