Change in Life



 




Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa.The Khalsa [pure ones] belongs to God.
Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.Victory belongs to God.
(WJKK WJKF Chatting version)


The most common usage of the word Waheguru is in the greeting Sikhs use with each other, like in english we call hello, hi; In hind Namestey, namskar; In Islam WaLaikum SaLam AsaLam-O-Alaikum. 





First time, I heard this greeting, when i met to Khalsa Youth Association (KYA) members (God/waheguru bless to me) in Ahmedabad on 21st May, 2006. After getting into this graceful congregation my life getting change, slowly slowly i was going to a unique way of life, no body can go here without the blessing of waheguruji (Sri Guru Granth Sahibji). Here, i would like to share my starting point when god called to me in a very unexpected way, here Gurbani says:







Ang/page: 672



ਘਾਲ ਨ ਮਿਲਿਓ ਸੇਵ ਨ ਮਿਲਿਓ ਮਿਲਿਓ ਆਇ ਅਚਿੰਤਾ ॥   



 


Ghaal n miliou saev n miliou miliou aae achinthaa |




We cannot meet the Lord by our own efforts, nor can we meet Him through service; He comes and meets us spontaneously.

 

ਜਾ ਕਉ ਦਇਆ ਕਰੀ ਮੇਰੈ ਠਾਕੁਰਿ ਤਿਨਿ ਗੁਰਹਿ ਕਮਾਨੋ ਮੰਤਾ ॥੩॥ 

Jaa ko dhaeiaa karee maerai thaakur thin gurehi kamaano manthaa |3|

 



One who is blessed by my Lord Master's Grace, practices the Teachings of the Guru's Mantra. ||3||







In my first placement after MBA, I transferred to Ahmedabad, it was so sudden. In first 15 days I stayed at my friend's home and searching room, simultaneously. I spent first 10 days like anything but could not get any room. On 11th day, I got a call, caller said dear, I heard that you are finding room near Vastrapur or SG highway. I said yes, I am. He said, please come and meet me at SG highway after Gurudwara Gobind dham, I can show a room to you which is on third floor of my house, would you like to see it? I said whyyyy not, I am coming now, please wait. Then, that time I never even tried to say hello or hi to Gurudwara sahibji while passing it. And, it was really a good one on a very nominal rent.







I started to stay their from 15th May, 2006. Then, after a week on Sunday 21st May, I was passing by Gurudwara and going to IIM for time pass. But, by grace of god suddenly, It came to my mind that lets go inside today to the gurudwara and give thanks to waheguruji for giving room and everything. Then, there was an announcement going on by KYA members about gurmat activities in evening at Gurudwara sahibji's langar hall (an open hall situated with all Sikh Gurdwaras where Langar or free vegetarian food is served (no cast bar everyone is welcome). One has to sit on the carpeted floor in straight lines called "pentaa" as a sign that everyone is equal before God and that no one has a higher or lower status in Waheguru's domain). This day was my turning point when I got a twist in my life. 

                                          

In the evening, I met with Mr.Harpreet Singh and Mr.Satinder Singh who are the founder of KYA concept and they said waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh to me and I was looking at them what happened what I have done and they laughed at me. He said yes verji (brother) what we can do for you. I introduced to them and said, in the morning I heard that there is an activity going to start by you guys? They said Yes, yes come inside and give your name to that verji. I said, Ok thanks thats great. But, I don't want to participate in the activities I said. I will be a voluntary to help you in the activities. They said, verji, It is really great for your interest and yes you can join us welcome to Khalsa Youth Association. And, every day and every meeting I feel very satisfied moment of life and honestly, I shared my all past (bad and good deeds) to the association members. 







I really enjoyed these lines when they repeat each and everytime in meetings with Sikhs. Like on phone, start with wjkk wjkf and end with wjkk wjkf in full form etc. Whenever they meet with any Sikh (known - unknown) they greet with wjkk wjkf. In every time I laughed on this moment and they amazed and grinned on me "how stupid perwinder is". And after some days, I realized that this is a very important msg for a Sikh to say when meeting to other Sikhs or Sikh family. It has following benefits:







- You are with god

- Remembering waheguru

- Starter for starting any talk or discussion

- Welcome message ending msg and remembering that we are under hukam (command of God)




Explanation may differ person to person.

No one can go back and change 


a bad beginning;

But anyone can start now and create a successful ending.

 

After all, in the last week of Dec and starting of Jan, when I was on trip to Punjab in my field study at IIM, I decided to have amrit sanchar at Amritsar and you know, I was wondering when and how should I ask for a holiday from Prof.Sukhpal Singh in the field work, It seems unresponsive. But, I knew it, god is always ahead of my thinking and doing. He already made the arrangement. When we have finished the field work on 31st Dec, Sunday, in the afternoon only, that day, out of the box prof. said, lets do some outing, have done lots of field work, lets have a visit to wagah border today and everybody shocked because we never or nothing expected this outing on 31st Dec from his side, we thought we would have another day for field but prof said next day is the holiday for all. And, our cabs moved to wagah just after the lunch and while coming back, I requested to Prof, Sir, I am willing to go to Amritsar for amrit sanchar and he said why not go ahead this is very important for you. He said, waheguruji has given you this chance, go. I said, thanks sir, I will be back by tomro afternoon to Jalandhar (operation site). I was very very happy and thankful to God. He is next to great, no body knows to whom, when and how he is going to bless with these gifts, he always comes spontaneously. Same day, I arrived at Darbar Sahibji, you know, this was my first visit to darbar sahibji after 3 to 4 years. It was too cold at that time. 



                                                                     Next morning at 6 am, I need to get prepare for amrit sanchar ceremony, which is going to start at 12 noon at
Akal Takhat. First of all, I took bath and washed my hair, but I never thought how I am going to dry my hairs in this dense fog. Then, I moved to buykakaars from the market, I need to have 5 kakaars before getting into amrit process. In the following you can see the picture for explanation:


 

      














Every 'K' have its own importance scientifically and spiritually. I called them as a school dress for entering into waheguruji's special school for their student, here you are going to learn about life. My dear reader keep in mind that amrit sancher you take because you dont know anything about sikh life, its not needed that first you learn all about sikhs life then you come for taking amrit, many people and my veers & bhens (brothers & sisters) think about it, but it is wrong you are taking amrit to learn something from waheguruji - Guru Granth Sahibji (teacher), it is just like a school, when you take admission in class 1st standard you are totally unaware  about the subjects and teaching what your teacher going to teach you. Dear, you will learn after the admission and giving exams, doing mistakes and then passing on to next standards from it. There are different stages in this school to reach to waheguruji. And, waheguru only know how and when he should give it to you, he will show you the path/way how to meet with him, you just need to follow his teachings, and his teachings are served in doing sadh sangat (congregation of amritdhari singhs & kaurs), here I am doing some discrimination among sikhs because after amrit sanchar it matters, who better understand the Gurbani (teachings of waheguruji). Anybody can take this amrit but he has to keep all five k's with his/her body till the death.   





So, this is the way of waheguruji, how he got me into it. Now, people called me khalsa ji, Mr. Singh, Perwinder Singh. 





Bhatia is my last name and Singh is my surname.   





Waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh





Please post your suggestions and comments, what more i should add into this writing, Please forgive me for the grammatical mistakes, i dont have english background in the study but still i would like to share the life, this writing is not my writing it is all waheguruji. I just typed it.
