Reap What You Sow

O self-willed manmukh! When will i realise He is just testing me and surrender to His Hukam? I beg for Your Divine Grace...

This Shabad is by Guru Raam Daas Ji in Raag Gauree on Pannaa 302 of SGGS ji:

O Nanak, the Lord and Master is pervading at both ends; He continually acts, and beholds His own play. 1

Nah man Taz Lionz zindabad :-)

I'm just a manmukh; we need more Gurmukhs like you.

I'm totally burnt out - too much of burning the candle at all ends and in the middle as well. Sikhs In the Square nearly killed me as well what with trying to fit everything else in as well - but it has to be done ;-)

Just taking a bit of a break from things at the moment while I collect my thoughts and try to sort my life out. But we got to work on the World Day of Protest now so I better get my finger out.

It's all seva after all. I've been off SikhSangat and Waheguroo Forums for the longest time as well - really need to get back into things.

See you this coming June and next time I'll be sure to come across and exchange Fatehs.

Keep it up

Happy New Year Singh Sahib! Great blog you have. I even did a post about your blog becuase I found the cartoon posts very funny. THanks for visitng my blog and keep up the great work. Waheguru!

Also, is there a way to post shabads in Gurmukhi on your blog? I have seen other people do it suchas from msingh and isingh.

ss paji i'm moderating the comments so i have final say lol- You are the true gurmukh- i'm not worth the dust on the feet of true sangat of gursikhs.
sikhsrus the way i do it is to select the shabad written in gurmukhi and drag it into the window when creating the blog article as copying and pasting converts it into english
