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.

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 would Badal make Dhumma sit on the ground and ask for Badal's attention like a good dog?  
    • We can visit the universe travelling just with our soul. Because we don't perform any meditation,  we believe our body is all we have.  However if we can have an out of body experience then we will realise how fast that type of travel is. You just need to imagine where you want to go and you will reach there. If you get too attached to your body then death will be very difficult as you thought it will just be this lifetime you had. Thus people's souls refuse to move on and the jamdhoot have to beat them and lead them on. However a pure soul will be greeted with divine guidance and will gracefully be escorted to a better place - the place they have been meditating upon to see.  There have been references of fallen angels coming to earth and reproducing with men. So the present day aliens can actually be just a mix of dna to create forms with a body and also provide them with demonic powers. Scientists mostly believe that some aliens have no digestive system thus their way if feeding is through the skin. This takes place through placing the body in a tank full of human blood so that they can feed. In order to survive and carry on their works they need human bodies,  for which they trade information of how to create loads of high tech equipment.  Who invented the laser or the mobile phone?  There are many new things with no inventors. These aliens are actually demons which have their homes in the universe.  They have used human bodies to create hybrid races.  They continue to do so and they need the co- operation of humans. They force human scientists to work under them. Lots of things and knowledge is invented to divert people from God. Delivered from the powers of darkness, is a book where the person describes their activities. He visited many such places until he was delivered. There are places under the sea as well. Therefore it is important to stick to your nitnem prayers and ardaas before you leave home.  There are powers secretly working to bring you down especially if you are a bhagat of God.  All happenings are not caused by God. These beings have ways of manipulating events. The book forms a very good informative read though it has a Christian basis. It demystifies a lot for us which goes on unseen. The book shows the power of uttering the name of God just once. All evil is taken care of and angels are eent for the protection of such a person . Therefore it is important to say Waheguru as much as possible during the daytime. 
    • ehh what about Life forms on other planets? What would you call them? Your long lost twins?  Guru Nanak Dev Ji visited another world andgot prasad from there, along with the son of Pir Dastagir, whom he showed, the universe is infinetely vast, are you really going to close your mind to the thought of other people like us out there? Aliens are mentioned in Gurbani, the word Alien just isn't used.       
    • Most Sikhs are Indians.  We have seen the consequences of fighting for our homeland in 84 nd it was bloody. India today is much stronger than in 84. Any sikh rebellion would be crushed in an instant. It would be foolish to repeat the same again
