Bandi Chhor Divas....

As every year, as a community we celebrate Bandi Chhor Divas (Divali) with eating laddoos and letting off fireworks? We celebrate that 52 kings got saved holding on to Guru jee, however, we have to ask ourselves are we holding on to Guru Jee? How will we have a chance of being saved without Gurbani, Naam or Rehat?

ਅਗਨਿ ਸਾਗਰ ਬੂਡਤ ਸੰਸਾਰਾ ||
agan saagar booddat sansaaraa ||
The world is drowning in the ocean of fire.

ਨਾਨਕ ਬਾਹ ਪਕਰਿ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਿ ਨਿਸਤਾਰਾ ||੪||੩||੮||
naanak baah pakar satgur nisataaraa.
O Nanak, holding me by the arm, the True Guru has saved me.
(Ang 803)

May Guru Jee bless us all with Gursikh Jeevan and Chardi Kalaa.

Dhan Hai Guru! Dhan Hai Teree Sikhee!
