"God breathes through us so completely...so gently we hardly feel it...yet, it is our everything." -John Coltrane, A Love Supreme
Long ago there was a holy and devout man named Pandit Shivdat. He was an idol worshipper and practiced renunciation. Despite the deep respect so many had for him, he grew tired of his ways and felt something was missing in the objects he had worshipped. He was looking for something to fill this void in his heart. As the story goes, early one morning Pandit Shivdat sat quietly with his eyes closed on the bank of the Ganga with his heart and mind in search of God. At that moment, a young Guru Gobind Singh Ji (at the time Gobind Rai) walked up behind him and sweetly whispered in to his ear "Pandit Ji Bo!" After seeing Guru Gobind Singh's charming face, Pandit Shivdat forgot about the idols and gods he had prayed to, for he saw in Guru Gobind Singh Sahib, the manifestation of the one and only Waheguru. The Pandit was liberated. He had found the Beloved in the child.
