MARTYRDOM DAY OF GURU ARJAN DEV Ji

MARTYRDOM DAY OF GURU ARJAN DEV JI

Guru Arjan Dev Ji
Was the embodiment of Godly devotion
Who rendered selfless service (Seva) of society
A saintly trait
Along with it all
He was an apostle of peace
Who stood firm and rock-solid on his principles
For which he made supreme sacrifice
And attained martyrdom – a painless one
‘Thine doings seem sweet unto me’
While remaining firm in his convictions/beliefs he held dear

Guru Arjan Dev Ji
Has immortalized himself
For his thoughts and noble deeds
He held dear
Which would be remembered
By all those who matter the most.
A Guru Ji who collated the Hymns
Of Sikh Gurus Jis’
As the cornerstone of present day Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji
Known with immense reverence as the Tenth Guru
Himself contributed a total of 2218 hymns
Of Guru Granth Sahib Ji
Along with Sukhmani Sahib Bani
Which bestows us joy and eternal peace
Which emphasizes meditation
As a pillar of strength
For removing worries and anguish from our being
While we remember our Creator
We dispel the fear of death
And our enemies are defeated
Remembering God,
We remain awake day and night
Remembering God we do not suffer with sorrow
Thence remembering God
In the company of saints so Sacred
We are graced
With all invaluable treasures – O Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
His major achievements are far too many
Became instrument in installation of Sikh Holy Book
Adi Granth,
Became main instrument in the construction of Golden Temple
Then developed Amritsar as a Centre of excellence
Enhanced the role of Sikh Society
By Introduction of Masand System
His motto was to be compassionate
He advised all Sikhs  
To donate a tenth
Of their earnings in charity
A noble cause
For which Sikhs are known
The world over

  2. All the Gurus have a distinct firmness of character, which is lacking in the so-called present-day Gurus. Guru Arjan Dev Ji, despite having so many qualities always stayed humble and steadfast.
    Sat-Sat Naman to Guru Arjan Dev Ji.

    1. Thank you so very much for your invaluable comments on GURU ARJAN DEV JI. Those Gurus worked for the wellness of the society and the present day Gurus, we all are aware!
