Shooting Stars

These shabads go out to those true Gursikhs that realise what they are born to do in the Universe and although often their lives may be short- the whole world stands still for a moment and watches in awe of the radiant light of the Lord that comes from within them.

Dhan Dhan Guru Pyarae
