They followed all forms of lifestyle.
Guru Nanak Dev Ji did Farm-work and worked in a shop, Bhai Lehna Ji (prior to becoming the second Nanak) used to lead processions to Naina Devi but afterwards he started running schools essentially. Guru Hargobind Ji and Guru Gobind Singh Ji were kings alright but they gave generously. The Langar was always running, prizes for physical sports and even paids for weapons for their sikhs and so on.
So basically The Guru in his various forms lived the ideal path in each of the lifestyles adopted.
I’ve heard that hazur sahib and budha dal have the same maryada when preparing Amrit but it’s different to taksal or sgpc. Can one guru pyaara please tell me the baniyan they read to prepare khande ki pahul?
also why don’t all the Amrit sanchars follow one maryada? Where did the sudden differences come from when preparing Amrit?
