I am a devotee of Lord Sai Baba of Shirdi. One of his sayings is – “No matter how distant my people are, I will draw them to me (Shirdi) just like we can pull a bird to us with a string tied to its foot.”
I believe it’s the Almighty’s choice when, how, why we plan a visit to his place. We can’t enter a place of worship till the Almighty doesn’t want us to enter. And, this is the Almighty’s wish that I travelled to Delhi and visited the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib.
It was a one-day visit and though I was unsure if I could manage to do both things – one was the visit to Gurudwara Bangla Sahib and second was some personal work in Delhi.
I started in Jaipur – Delhi Double Decker Express, which starts at morning 06.00am from Jaipur. It was my first experience travelling in a double decker train, and it was a good experience, all throughout. After 4.5 hours of journey, the train reached Delhi Sarai Rohilla at around 10.35-10.40am.
First stance of the Almighty’s grace
I planned to go to the nearest metro station and then reach the nearest metro station to Bangla Sahib and then walk to the Gurudwara. But, outside the railway station the plans somehow changed instantly and I was there at Karol Bagh metro station, which was close to the Bangla Sahib’s metro station .i.e. Patel Chowk metro station.
Later on, I realized that if I had took the earlier decided route, I would have reached the place after 12.00 noon, which was less preferred by me.
Unknowingly, just after the darshan and when I was on way towards metro station on Ashoka Road, I had a glance on the phone and realized it was exactly 12.00 noon.
I usually try to visit a worship place before 12 noon, and through this instant route change, Almighty took care of it even without praying for it. Thank you so much, Almighty 🙂
I reached and had a great darshan. I was having a question, and I requested the Almighty to solve it. It was really very peaceful experience at the holy place. I visit it on each and every visit to Delhi, and it’s peacefulness and feeling close to the Almighty bring me to the place again and again. A divine connection one must say. All credits to the Almighty 🙂
Second stance of the Almighty’s grace
Usually it’s my family’s belief that to the best possible, we should have a darshan first and then have our food for the day .ie. Breakfast. Here, on the day, after the proper darshan, this fact was not in my mind and I headed towards the prasad counter, where they hand over prasad (halwa type) to all devotees. I took the prasad and just after having prasad, I remembered that unknowingly I also followed that belief of my family. At that moment, the prasad felt like amrit for me. I felt so happy and thought – Waheguru ji bless all.
And in fact, Waheguru ji blesses us all and fulfils our wishes, even the things we forgot but he doesn’t. Our Almighty is supreme and he is the best mentor we can have in our life.
After worship in the Gurudwara, I clicked some of the pictures of the place, which I do on each and every pic. The divine water resource present here, the gurudwara darbar, each and everything is quite peaceful. The way people peacefully worship from all the communities, made me really proud of the unity of the people in our country. May God bless all 🙂
Overall after the visit, I headed to my personal work and boarded the train same day in the evening. Everything happened as per the plan and the credits as always goes to the Waheguru ji/Almighty.
It is said that – Our Almighty is so kind that he allows us to preach him, worship him, remember him in any form and he will guide us, take care of us in that way.
I wrote some words for the Almighty, and I would like to re-write them here once again:
Wishing you all a very good time ahead. Almighty bless you all!
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
