Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib & The Limitless Langar
Taken from “Nau Visheshtaiyaan Sri Sukhmani Sahib jee” by Bhai GurIkbaal Singh



Bibi Santi


During the time of Guru Hargobind Sahib, there was a Sikh woman, Bibi Santi, who was married into a family in the village of Butala. Bibi Santi’s parents were Sikhs but due to circumstances, found herself married into a family that believed in Sakhi Sarvar (a Muslim Pir). Bibi Santi read Gurbani daily and had a deep love for the Guru. Her mother-in-law however, could not tolerate this faith in Sikhi. Eventually, Bibi Santi was asked to leave the family’s house and was made to live in a hut outside.

Bibi Santi was happy that now she would be able to read Gurbani without anyone objecting. Slowly she was able to influence her husband through stories of the Guru and he too became a Sikh.

After some time, a son was born to Bibi Santi who was named Palla. The happiness in the small family was short lived however as Bibi Santi’s husband died quite suddenly.


Faith in Satguru Jee


Bibi Santi did not lose her faith and kept walking on the path of Gurmat. She taught her son stories of the Guru and also Gurbani. Bhai Palla too developed a love for the Guru and had a deep desire to one day have Guru Sahib’s darshan. He would ask his mother when Guru Sahib would come to them and Bibi Santi would reply, “Satguru jee is antarjami (all-knowing). Wherever his Sikhs remember him, he will certainly come to meet them.”

Young Bhai Palla now had a non-stop longing to cast his eyes on his Satguru. Bhai Palla was convinced that Guru Sahib would come to him and so he wanted to be ready for the moment. Though he and his mother were very poor, he decided the best offering he could give to Guru Sahib was GuR (sugar-jaggery). Wherever he went, Bhai Palla carried the guR with him, tied in a cloth, not knowing when Guru Sahib would hear his ardaas and give his darshan.


Darshan


Bhai Palla’s ardaas day and night bore fruit one day. Guru Sahib arrived in village Butala with some Sikhs. All the villagers were followers of Sakhi Sarvar and so no one paid Guru Sahib any respect. Guru Hargobind Sahib and his Sikhs however went directly to where Bhai Palla was sitting and stopped their horse in front of him. Bhai Palla recognized that his Satguru had finally come and was overjoyed. He remembered the guR he had tied in the cloth and began to fumble with the knot so he could offer it to Guru jee. Bhai Palla tried, but could not open the long-tied knot. Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib cast his loving eye on his Sikh and said, “Palla! Here, let me open your knots…”

What a blessing Guru Sahib gave to Bhai Palla. What more could Bhai Palla ask?

Guru Sahib opened the knot and Bhai Palla humbly placed the guR before Guru Sahib and bowed. Satguru jee then said, “Palla! My Sikhs and I are hungry. Take us to your home and give us langar.”

Bhai Palla could not contain his happiness and quickly lead Guru jee and the Sikhs to his small home. Mata Santi upon seeing Sri Guru jee’s darshan, lost all awareness. Bhai Palla shook his mother and said, “Guru Sahib wants to have langar. Prepare langar for him.”


Villagers and the Langar


The villagers of Butala were bitter and went on to their rooftops to see what was happening. They saw that Guru Sahib and his Sikhs were waiting for langar and began to laugh that Bibi Santi and Bhai Palla who sometimes could not even manage one meal a day for themselves were now being asked to cook for so many. The villagers decided amongst themselves that no one would help the two Sikhs nor give them any loan to help buy rations for the langar. They would see the humiliating scene when Bibi Santi and Bhai Palla would tell Guru Sahib that they could not make the langar and have the opportunity to laugh at them.

Satguru Hargobind Sahib knew all and saw the crowds on their rooftops looking at them. Guru Sahib said to Bhai Palla, “Palla! Go invite all the villagers to have langar here as well today.” Bhai Palla obeyed the hukam and went to all the villagers and asked them to come to their home for langar. The villagers laughed and said that today the humiliation would be double what they expected. The mother and son could hardly feed themselves let alone all the Sikhs and now all the villagers.


The Miracle


Guru Hargobind Sahib called Bhai Palla and gave him two kerchiefs and told him to put one on the flour and one on the daal. Mata Santi should not look underneath them after that.

Bibi Santi had prepared all the flour in the house for parshadas but it was still very little. There was also a little daal she had prepared. The two kerchiefs were placed on each and Bibi Santi began to prepare the parshadas while Bhai Palla did the seva of distributing them. To their amazement, all the Sikhs and all the villagers had their fill of langar and still the parshadas and daal under Guru Sahib's kerchiefs were not finishing.

The villagers were awe-struck and fell at Guru Hargobind Sahib’s feet. They had wanted to see the humiliation of the two poor Sikhs but Guru Sahib had shown that he would never let his Sikhs be humiliated in such a way. The faith of the villagers in Sikhi was born that day and Bibi Santi and Bhai Palla’s faith was rewarded.

Do you agree we can get limitless langar even today with Guru Sahib ji's kirpa?

Limitless Langar can be prepared by a Gurmukh Brahamgyani using a Ridhi, but there are only a few Gurmukh Brahamgyanis in our Panth.

ਕੋਟਨ ਮੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਕੋਊ ਨਾਰਾਇਨੁ ਜਿਹ ਚੀਤਿ ॥੨੪॥

kōtan mai nānak kōū nārāin jih chīt .24.

There is (ko-oo) some rare one (mai) in (kottan) crores (jih) who has (naaraain-u = abode of creatures) the Almighty (cheet-i) in mind – s/he overcomes temptations, says ninth Nanak. 2.4.

 

Bhul chuk maaf

I personally feel if 5 rehitvaan Dal Panth Nihangs do Ardaas before Satguru ji, we can get limitless langar even today.

Guru Sahib has given Khalsa panth the status of Guru.

Dasmesh Pita always keep the honour of Baanaa.

If 5 rehitvaan banaa wearing Singhs do Ardaas for limitless langar, Guru Sahib will keep the honour of those 5 Singhs.

There are hundreds of millions of poor people in india and around the world why haven't these rehitvaan Singhs done anything?

Why aren't they helping hundreds of millions of poor people in India and around the world? What excuse do they have, when starving people are all around them?

Those kinds of Bachan come with limited use restrictions is my thinking. For example five special arrows not unlimited. A spring here or there. Only the necessary miracles all credit given to Har. Ridh and Sidh are largely rejected by Gurmat, we leave our Ridh and Sidh up to Hukam charged by Naam Gurbani usually. But do I think Guru Ji can provide a miracle of an endless Langar? Yes. Did he? Who could say 111 percent?

Banda Singh Bahadar had special 5 arrows given by Dasmesh Pita. These were sort of celestial weapons and were used by Khalsa to defeat an army which was much superior in number and weaponry.

According to ur logic, why isn't Khalsa using these celestial weapons today as we hv so many enemies? Why were celestial weapons not used by Khalsa during 1984 attack by Indian army?

Because it was not in the hukam at that time...

Usually Gurmukh Brahamgyanis follow the will of Sri Waheguru jee. 

This might sound rude or inhumane, but those people who are starving (in their current life form) probably must have starved other people in their previous lives. But, devout Sikhs will try to help the needy people as much as they can, as it is the Hukam of Maharaaj to do so.

Exactly my point bro. The arrows were given for that time and purpose and only to the degree needed. 

I think infinite Langar would also exist to a specific purpose or rules.

Exactly Bro!

In 25th paurri of Jap ji Sahib, Maharaj says,

Ketiyaa duukh bhuukh sadd maar,

Eh bhi daat Teri daataar.

Waheguru ji deliberately gives hunger to some people but even this hunger is a gift of God to those people as this hunger cuts off their previous bad karmaa.

Similarly, brahmgyani can easily cure even the most deadliest disease of a person but they do that in rare cases only.

Sometimes it's the hukam of Waheguru to make a person suffer from disease.

i agree with you. Alot of these people cant come to terms with this fact that our life is largely determined by our previous karams and our future is largely dependent on our own karams.

Sister people starve due to man made greed. Karam in Sanskrit refers to actions in this life. The various Genocides inflicted upon Sikhs did not occur because of bad so-called previous karams on the part of innocent Sikhs being massacred by the Muslims, British or Indira Gandhi's thugs.

It's simply not true that dark skinned people from India or Africa have sinned more in previous lives (compared to rich Caucasians) nor that Sikhs deserved multiple Genocides for crimes allegedly perpetrated in their previous lives.

Exactly brother. The only miracle that our Guru Sahibaan gave us is the blessing of Gurbani. If our Guru Sahibaan never performed circus trick miracles then how can lesser mortals?

What about the kabba turning and Guru Nanak Dev Ji's charran being interred there. It's a miracle that he and his companion were not killed when he said Sat Sri Akal Gurbar Akal and I don't think they would have received him without the kabba turning. Which is why I think that happened. Necessity of Hukam. A glimmering hint in the time when God is forgotten and denied. For this to be so miracles have to almost never happen. Too frequent a miracle changes the Yughs characteristics. 

But I've seen things myself to know the miraculous. Usually in battle when a sincere miracle is needed for Dharam, Daya, Sarbat Da Balah, and no thought of the experincer in ego. They're instinctual and thoughtless while they occur. You only even think about it after. And you're left knowing it wasn't you. 

I would doubt 99 out of 100 claims but I do think legitimate miracles exist in rarety especially around Sahiban.

That's a side effect of aryanism and not even intended by aryans as far as I can tell and a misunderstanding of how Karam works entirely. 

Sikhi itself represents combined aryan and tamil influences and they both disavow colorism and casteism. 

It's the surrounding peoples who chased after the aryan status and abused the dark skinned.

Karam is also our curriculum. Suffering can given as medicine. Whatever someone is learning right now from Satguru shouldn't be judged superficiallly as good or bad. Hard times make great men. So who does God "love more" the one being made great or the one who thinks their riches make them great? So who's got the hard Karam coming?
