  2. The below extract is from Gurbani Arth Bhandar Pothi. Bhul chuk maaf
  3. Please read the extract below from Vairag Shatak. It explains how Greed troubles a human being. Quote Oh Greed! Due to your support I have worked in servitude but received nothing from it ! I have endured the cruel words from fools, which would make anyone cry. I have restrained my mind and held back my tears, being unsure about my future I have not replied in any harsh way. Just like a worried person who fake laughs, showing their teeth excessively, I have clasped my hands together and regularly saluted so many idiots. In the same way I salute you Greed, I have been trying to please you for so long, but now please leave me alone, I'm just a servant why do you continue to burn me?

  4. Quote The passage below is a response from Forgiveness, to the King Bibek [discerning intellect] on how he will destroy Anger. So Forgiveness said, "Listen Bibek to the way in which I will defeat Anger; whenever confronted with Anger I will remain silent. If that does not work, and they continue to shout obscenities, then I will with a loving nature speak back in humility. If they continue with their anger and begin to curse me, then I'll fall at their feet and plead with them for compassion. And if they begin to beat me, then I'll happily reply saying, You are removing my past sins" Unquote[1] [1] - https://www.manglacharan.com/post/forgiveness-defeats-anger-prabodh-chandar-natak Bhul chuk maaf
  5. Quote The lowly idiots do not enshrine me (Contentment) in their mindset, and for this the bodies of these idiots burn in the bondages of attachment. For the sake of wealth they begin all sorts of work, all of which fails, but they continue on in the world with their animalistic mentality with no shame. Just like a deer gets enticed and goes after a mirage of water, an idiot goes about in the world chasing [an illusion of happiness]. Without my (Contentment's) Grace one's desires are not quenched; desires which strike down and make these [idiots] cry out in pain.

  7. Quote During the encirclement of Anandpur Sahib when supplies were running low, Guru Gobind Singh sent a letter to the Raja of Nahan, Mediniprakash, requesting supplies of opium be sent for the troops. ਜਲ ਥੰਮਣ ਬੈਰਾਗ ਰਿਪੁ ਥੱਕਿਆ ਬੈਹਣ ਨ ਦੇਹ | That which keeps moisture away, tears away from one's eyes, and doesn't allow one to sit with fatigue ਚੰਪਾ ਤੁਮਾਰੇ ਦੇਸ਼ ਮੇਂ ਭੇਜ ਹਮਾਰੇ ਦੇਹਿ | The opium in your land, send those supplies to me Unquote[1] [1] - https://www.manglacharan.com/post/guru-gobind-singh-ji-penning-letter-to-raja-of-nahan-requesting-opium Bhul chuk maaf

Quote ਪਾਵਕ ਬਾਚ ।। The Speech of Fire ਮੇਰੀ ਅਗਨਿਤਾ ਭਈ ਸੁ ਸਫਲ ।। ਤ੍ਵ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਧਰਨੀਧਰ ਬਿਲਮ ।। ਤ੍ਵ ਸੱਤਾ ਕਰ ਜਠਰ ਨਿਵਾਸਤਿ ।। ਸਰਬ ਭੂਤ ਕੇ ਉਦਰ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸਤਿ ।।੧।। "Oh Foundation of the Earth , My nature of Fire is only successful through your Grace!

  10. Quote [After Guru Hargobind] spoke, Jahangir listening to this bowed his head, upon getting up the Emperor went to his own camp. Satguru [Hargobind] arrived at his own encampment and upon returning He [and the other Sikhs] drank cannabis. Mounting their horses [Guru Hargobind and his warriors] then went out for a ride. Travelling along the path by the banks of the Yamuna River, watching the water slowly flow and the beautiful greenery around the banks. Covering a great distance [they stopped] and dismounted their horses, there were many among the group; there was Nanda, the Sangheras were within them, and Jetha, Amia Hehar, Ninjer and Randhava, Kirpal of Jalu, the resolute Sikhs Langaha and Pirana. They all then bathed their whole body [in the Yamuna River]. Standing at the riverbank looking at the flow of water, the dark coloured waves going by, one Sikh, Pirana, asked the Guru, "Who is this Majnu that everyone knows about? Who's name is associated with this land where you have placed your camp." Listening to this Sri Satiguru Hargobind replied, "His story originated long ago. The King of this area [Delhi] had a daughter named Layla, [Manju] had heard that she was extremely beautiful, looking upon her one was imbued with love. He could not get his mind to focus on anything else. Being in Lahore, Manju contemplate upon Laila, day and night he kept his one pointed focus on her. One day he met a traveler on a camel, who was getting ready to set off for Delhi. Majnu then began to give the message to the rider, but in saying and saying the message [it was so long] that he continued to follow the path of the rider. He travelled along with the camel, without his sense he ran along side the camel [giving his love message for Layla to the rider]. Following the camel rider [all the way] he arrived in Dehli to see Layla. When meeting Layla one time she took him [by the arm] and said to Majnu, "Now you should stay in this place [that I have taken you] and stand here. After some time I shall return and meet you, remain here [in the woods] waiting for me". Saying this she left and Majnu remained waiting there, with his attention focused and remembering Layla. Standing there many years had passed by, he paid no attention to his own body during this time. His whole body dried up like a dry piece of wood, all the while Layla did not remember or think of Majnu. Through the power of Love he did not lose his life, his mind was extremely focused [upon Layla]. Dried up like a trunk of a tree he remained standing. His love for the sight of Layla was extremely powerful. A carpenter one day set off to where Majnu was standing, thinking that he was a tree trunk he stuck Majnu with his axe, when the axe hit Majnu he regained his senses and said, "Is that you Layla? You have come to me?" The carpenter then was shocked and then realized it was Majnu standing here, he then set off to tell the King of this, who then had Layla sent to Majnu. She went to Majnu and when they saw each other, they were fully imbued in the colour of Love. They directed their minds focus from all directions and placed it upon the contemplation of Parameshvar. 50 Majnu's love directed at Layla was then expanded to the one pointed focus on Prabhu [and thus] Majnu became a fully enlightened saint at this place." In this way Satiguru [Hargobind] spoke of the of the story of Majnu and Layla. The Sikhs, listening and understanding the story, enjoyed it very much, then where they were gathered [by the river banks] they mounted their horses again, [rode out] to their encampment to rest [after] eating and drinking their dinner.
