Gavai ko saj kare tan kheh……….
Some sing that He fashions the body, and then again reduces it to dust

( Guru Granth Sahib )

“Maanas Ki Jaat Sabhai Ekai Pahchaanbo”
Recognise the whole of mankind as one race.
( Guru Gobind Singh Ji )


                             
 Guru Kaa langar ..................

" irrespective of caste , colour and religious beliefs ,.Every person gets food and shelter in a Gurudwaara ."        
                                                                             


                                                                       
The golden arrows used by Guru Gobind singh ji being displayed from Akal Takht on 14.04.2012..Every arrow of Guru Gobind Singh Ji was mounted with half an ounce of gold. Its object was to alleviate the suffering of the victim.
Should the person aimed at be wounded then he could sell the gold for medicine. Should the mark prove fatal, then the gold could be used to aid the deceased family. Two specimens of these arrows are preserved.

Main kis hanju da diwa baal ke teri aarti lawaan,
out of which tear drop should I light a lamp and do your aarti
( Punjabi Poet Shiv Kumar Batalvi in praise of Guru Gobindh singh ji )
