Good work


A man was asked to paint a boat.

He brought with him paint and brushes and began to paint the boat a bright red, as the owner asked him.

While painting, he noticed that there was a small hole in the hull, and quietly repaired it.

When finished painting, he received his money and left.

The next day, the owner of the boat came to the painter and presented him with a nice cheque, much higher than the payment for painting.

The painter was surprised and said "You've already paid me for painting the boat Sir!"

"But this is not for the paint job. It's for having repaired the hole in the boat."

"Ah! But it was such a small service... certainly it's not worth paying me such a high amount for something so insignificant."

"My dear friend, you do not understand. Let me tell you what happened.

When I asked you to paint the boat, I forgot to mention about the hole.

When the boat dried, my kids took the boat and went on a fishing trip.

They did not know that there was a hole. I was not at home at that time.

When I returned and noticed they had taken the boat, I was desperate because I remembered that the boat had a hole.

Imagine my relief and joy when I saw them returning from fishing.

Then, I examined the boat and found that you had repaired the hole! You see, now, what you did? You saved the life of my children! I do not have enough money to pay your 'small' good deed."

_So, no matter who, when or how. Just continue to help, sustain, wipe tears, listen attentively and carefully repair all the 'leaks' you find, because you never know when one is in need of us or when God holds a pleasant surprise for us to be helpful and important to someone_.

_You may have repaired numerous 'boat holes' along the way... of several people without realizing how many lives you've saved_.

*✨So Keep up Good  work ...✨💐*

🙏 😊
I want to thank Everyone who repaired my boat this year 2016 in every way like good wishes, thoughts, love, care & prayers.

Questions about soul


A disciple asked his Guru- "Is there a 'Soul' in our body,? Will it not 'perish' like the body.?"

The Guru explained...

"Milk" is useful but if left as it is.. it gets spoiled...

In case you add a drop a "Buttermilk".. it becomes "Curd".. and the Milk that turns to Curd, remains for one more day without getting spoiled...

If left as it is.. the Curd gets spoiled...

Yet, if you churn the "Curd" it becomes "Butter" which doesn't get spoiled...

But, even Butter also does not remain fresh for many days.. It becomes rancid or spoiled after a few days...

But if you melt Butter in a proper manner.. It becomes pure "Ghee", which never gets spoiled...

Now, do you see that the "Milk" which gets spoiled contains "Ghee" that never gets spoiled.?

Likewise, inside the "perishable" Body, there is an "imperishable" Soul...


And it is this soul, which with Naam bhakti alone, which can become one with Him

God Bless.


Modern FairyTales


"And then the princess found herself locked in a tower surrounded by a stinky moat with crocodiles and a huge scary dragon guarding the door,"
read the mother, with her eyes wide and voice deep.

Then, she made a sad face and continued softly,

"So, the poor princess waited and waited for her prince to come--"

*"But, why was she waiting for the prince, mumma?!"*
asked the little girl, impatiently.

The mother added, "To come and save her, silly."

"But, mumma, why did she need a prince to save her?" the girl asked again.

 "Uhh... hmm..." the mother was at a loss of words.

The little girl said proudly,
"If it were me, instead of waiting for years and years for a prince, I would have tamed the dragon and flew out of the window.

I would have rescued myself."

She discarded the book and walked away,
"This princess is stupid."

The mother whispered with a broad smile,
"I guess it is time to rewrite the fairy tales."


*Lets teach our daughters to be self sufficient n independent rather than waiting for a prince or a miracle to happen!

Life is beautiful stay connected


Mother  is  flying  a  kite.
Her son is watching her carefully.

After some time son says "mom.
Because of the string the kite is not able to go any further higher.

"Hearing this, the mother smiles and breaks the string.
The kite goes higher and then shortly after that,
it comes and falls on the ground.

The child is very dejected and sad.

The mother sits next to him and calmly explains:
"Son, in life we reach a certain level and then we feel that there are certain things that are not letting us grow any further like Home, Family, Friends, Culture etc.

We feel we want to be  free from those strings which we believe are stopping us from going higher.

But, remember son."That our home , family, friends and culture are the things that will help us stay stable at the high heights .

If we try to break away from those strings our condition will be similar to the kite."we'll fall down soon..

*"Never  go  away  from  Home  Culture,  Family, Friends  and  Relationships as they help keep us stable while we are flying high..."*



Early and late


All problems are only due to two words "early" and "late"
We dream too early..
            And act too late..
We trust too early..
            And forgive too late.
We get angry too early..
         And apologize too late.
We give up too early..
            And restart too late.
We cry too early ..
            And smile too late
Change "early" or
            It will be too "late"



"Don't compare your life with others....
There's no comparison,

between the Sun & the Moon.

They shine when it's their time...

with their own virtues.

While a man was polishing his new car,

his 6 yr old son picked up a stone,

and scratched lines on the side of the car.

In anger, the man took the child's hand and hit it many times;

not realising he was using a wrench.

At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.

When the child saw his father...

with painful eyes he asked, 'Dad when will my fingers grow back?'

The man was so hurt and speechless;

he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.

Devastated by his own actions.....

sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches;

the child had written 'LOVE YOU DAD'.

The next day that man committed suicide. . .

Anger and Love have no limits;

choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life.....

Things are to be used and people are to be loved.

But the problem in today's world is that,

People are used and things are loved.

In this year, let's be careful to keep this thought in mind:

Things are to be used,

but People are to be loved.

Watch your thoughts; they become words.

Watch your words; they become actions.

Watch your actions; they become habits.

Watch your habits they become character;

Watch your character; it becomes your destiny

12 sentences worth their weight in gold


1 Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life. Never ask for a lighter rain, just pray for a better umbrella. That is Attitude.

2 When flood comes, fish eats ants and when flood recedes, ants eat fish. Only time matters. Just hold on. God gives opportunity to every one.

3 In a theatre when drama plays, you opt for front seats. When film is screened, you opt for rear seats. Your position in life is only relative. Not absolute.

4 For making soap, oil is required. But to clean oil, soap is required. This is the irony of life.

5 Life is not about finding the right person. But creating the right relationship.

6 It's not how we care in the beginning. But how much we care till the end.

7 Every problem has (N+1) solutions: where N is the number of solutions that you have tried and 1 is that you have not tried.

8 When you are in problem, don't think it's the End. It is only a Bend in life.

9 Difference between Man and God is God gives, gives and forgives. Man gets, gets and forgets.

10 Only two category of people are happy in life-The Mad and the Child. Be Mad to achieve a goal. Be a Child to enjoy what you achieved.

11 Never play with the feelings of others. You may win. But loose the person for lifetime.

12 There is NO Escalator to success. ONLY STEPS!!!

    • Agreed. You simply cannot have a Gurdwara named for a specific caste, tribe, race, etc. Guru Sahib never made such caste-based gurdwaras, so on what basis are we doing so? Gurdwara NRI Sahib, Gurdwara White Sikh Sahib, Gurdwara Punjabi Sikh Sahib, Gurdwara African Sikh Sahib? I believe there was some guidance on this issue from Akal Takhat (if not a hukumnama, then just sandesh). It was something on the order of, 1) no more gurdwaras are to be constructed without permission from Akal Takhat--demonstration of need is required, don't open up multiple unnecessary gurdwaras in a village or neighborhood. 2) No caste-based gurdwaras. 3) No gurdwaras named after a personage without reason (i.e., it's OK to have, say a Gurdwara Baba Deep Singh or Gurdwara Jassa Singh Ramgarh in the birthplace or other places associated with them, but not for the sake of hint-hint, wink-wink caste-based gurdwara. I hate the way some gurdwaras want to piggy-back off the lives of exalted personalities without there being any real connection there. Gurdwara Dasmesh Darbar does not mean that gurdwara has some special ability to channel the ideals of the 10th Guru Sahib. I realize that some gurdwaras may have committee members all of a single caste, perhaps because the founders were a guy, and his brother-in-laws, and their brother-in-laws, which would all be of a single caste/group. One hopes that as time passes, the caste-based nature of the gurdwara will decline. But once you put the caste/group name in the name of the gurdwara itself, you're fixing the caste-based nature of the place in stone. It's sort of like monas and gurdwara committees: It's true that at one time, all or most committees were all mona, simply because there weren't any kesadharis to do committee duty. As time went on, monas were replaced gradually with kesadharis. But that gradual change could not have happened if the very name of the gurdwara had been Gurdwara Monian. What we need to have is fewer gurdwaras within small geographical areas and all the Sikhs of that area coming together into a single gurdwara. They ought to simply be named after the locality in which they are based. Gurdwara Glasgow Sahib. Gurdwara Douglaston Sahib. Gurdwara Sector 31 Sahib, Chandigarh. One problem, though, is that the incumbent jathedars have ruined the prestige of the Akal Takhat, so people are less willing to listen to it anymore.
    • Some more tips: Know what makes you want to masturbate or what the conditions are for you to watch porn: usually this is boredom or loneliness, or some stress going on and no way to relieve it, (these are usually what they are for others it may be different) When you relapse, don't feel guilty, just get back-up and pretend like it never happened; do you paht and maybe listen to some kirtan, (DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE ALLOW YOURSELF TO IGNORE WHAT GURU SAHIB HAS SAID!) Know who produces pornography, these are usually some Non-Sikhs known as Jews who would love to see the world be their Ghulami. Understand why they produce porn, and that is to weaken Non-Jews from the power. Another group is the illumaniti, and their goal is to unite humanity under Paap, (they have other mediums as well). Remember what makes you happy outside of porn and masturbation. Once everyone was a kid, and before we even heard of masturbation or porn, we had other routes to deal with boredom and stress, try to deal with stress with other routes and accept that boredom will be a part of life and just another experience you should realize. (What I will say next will be a little unlike my normal posts), don't try to see yourself beneath anything, (except Guru Sahib that is), until you have mentally been strong enough, (so forget all that humility except if your doing Seva or helping someone, just until the effects go away). If someone could actually masturbate that much, I wouldn't be saying don't masturbate, I'd be telling them to go to the doctor and let them understand why that guy produces so much sperm. Also I'd expect you have some mental problem if you end-up like this guy: http://superofficialnews.com/argentinian-man-masturbates-83-times-24-hour-period-new-world-record/ " 'Growing up he would never leave his room,' Lopez’s mom Evita told reporters. 'He would just stay in his room and masturbate. We knew one day all that practice would pay off for him. Hugo has made all his friends and family so proud.' "  I know comparing myself to this extremely low standard is not me, but I don't think I could ever just masturbate. 😒 (Whenever I want to make myself look good, I will just comment about how there is someone worser than me, forgetting what identity they have).
