News of the Sacred enthronement of Sri Guru Arjan Sahib spread around and the devotees eager to have a direct glimpse of Nanak the Fifth set out for Amritsar from distant places. In this spiritual quest the sangat from Kabul was also on its way to Amritsar. On the last day of their journey they were determined to reach the holy presence of the New Guru but could not make it and had to camp few miles away from Sri Harimandir Sahib. The Sangat included the old, the young and the children. Tired and hungry, they now yearned for a blessed vision of the Holy Guru next morning.For travelers who use our world travel planner, Amritsar holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Gurudwara Pipli Sahib and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Sri Guru Arjan Sahib asked Mata Ganga, His holy wife, to prepare plenty of food with her own hands. Guru Arjan along with Mata Ganga then carried the food and water on their heads barefooted to the camp site. They served the food and water to the tired and hungry sangat. One old man, very much tired, was pressing his own legs. Sri Guru Arjan Sahib with folded hands begged for this service and started pressing the legs of the old man. The whole night the Guru and His wife served the sangat and fanned them with a hand-fan.
Gurdwara Pipli Sahib stands as a Sacred Memorial on this holy spot.
Satguru never forsakes His beloved Sikhs. Satguru loves his disciples with deep and abiding love and uplifts them spiritually in mysterious, wonderful and amazing ways.
"Gur Meray Pran Satgur Meri Ras" (Sri Guru Granth Sahib (239-40))
For a Sikh, the Guru is the soul of his own soul.
"Nanak Satgur Sikh Ko Jea Naal Samarey" (Sri Guru Granth Sahib (286))
Satguru loves and holds his Sikh dearer to himself more than his own soul.
"Guru Te Sikh Da Rishta Sab Ton Paak
Rishta Hai, Es Dey Vich Maya Nahin Ani
Chahidi, Es Rishtey De Agey Rab Vi Apna Sir Jhukanda Hai " (Baba Narinder Singh Ji)
The whole life of Sri Guru Arjan Sahib is replete with soul-stirring and awe-inspiring incidents of profound spirit of humility.
