BMW & Japji Sahib


Recommended Posts

"A young girl was getting ready to Graduate University. For many months she

had admired a BMW in a dealer’s showroom, and knowing her father could well

afford it, she told him that was all she wanted.

As Graduation Day approached, the young girl awaited signs that her father

had bought the car. Finally, on the morning of her graduation her father

called her into his private study. Her father told her how proud he was to

have such a fine daughter, and told her how much he loved her. He handed his

daughter a beautiful wrapped gift box.

Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young girl opened the box and found a


"Gutka of Japji Saheb". Angrily, she raised her voice at her father and


"With all your money you give me a "Gutka of Japji Saheb"?" and stormed out

of the house, leaving the holy book. Many years passed and the young girl

was very successful in business. She had a beautiful home and wonderful

family, but realized her father was very old, and thought perhaps she should

go to him. She had not seen him since that graduation day.

Before she could make arrangements, she received a telegram telling her

father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his daughter.

She needed to come home immediately and take care of things.

When she arrived at her father's house, sudden sadness and regret filled her

heart. She began to search her father's important papers and saw the still

new "Gutka of Japji Saheb", just as she had left it years ago. With tears,

she opened the "Japji Saheb" and began to turn the pages. As she read those

words, a car key dropped from an envelope taped behind the "Japji Saheb". It

had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the BMW she had


On the tag was the date of her graduation, and the words...PAID IN FULL. How

many times do we miss WAHEGURU'S blessings because they are not packaged as

we expected? "

We want the big cars and fancy houses, but we don’t want to have anything to

do with Sikhi. But little do we know life gets better and you can have both .... got this in my email...so thot id share...its kinda...true...

maybe i'm just being cynical, but i don't see that story conveying the right message.

it still seems to suggest that the bmw is the real present (metaphorically vaheguru's blessing) rather than the girl feeling any sort of appreciation for bani.

but that's just my take on it.
