ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਚੋਂ ਹਵਾਲੇ (References)

ਪਵਣੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਪਾਣੀ ਪਿਤਾ ਮਾਤਾ ਧਰਤਿ ਮਹਤੁ ॥  ਦਿਵਸੁ ਰਾਤਿ ਦੁਇ ਦਾਈ ਦਾਇਆ ਖੇਲੈ ਸਗਲ ਜਗਤੁ ॥ (ਜਪੁ : ੮)


When I am guided by the teachings of Jap Baani (Gurbani), it transforms into my spiritual mentor, guiding me along my inner journey. As I embrace Gurbani, it functions like spiritual father or water, nourishing my lifestyle and ultimately yielding the fruits of wisdom and contentment in life.


The wisdom derived from Gurbani, known as Bibek budh, evolves into my spiritual nurturer, creating the ideal conditions for the growth of my spiritual awakening within the depths of my heart. During this journey, I encounter numerous challenges within the realm of the duality, where there are moments when I adhere to deviate from Bibek budh, which serves as my spiritual day and night. Guided by Gurbani, my way of life becomes akin to a midwife, facilitating a spiritual birth within Satgur's abode - the Eternal Home. The eternal birth lands me in the safe hands of Parmesar who now acts like my carer and makes me play the game of bliss within the eternal world
