One time, Sant Ji was sitting in his room with couple of gursikhs doing Gurbani vichaar. Sant Ji always sat equal to sangat, never higher. Just then a gursikh entered, said fateh and sat on Sant Ji’s bed. This gursikh considered him a great katha vaachak who had studied Arabic, and Sanskrit granths. Gursikhs sitting with Sant Ji were about to throw him down but before they could get up Sant Ji stopped them and smiled. Sant Ji humbly asked his haal chaal and then served him jall paani. Then Sant Ji said, “I have a question. Will you answer it?” Gursikh said yes. Sant Ji said, ““Gur Seva Tay Bhagat Kamayee, Tab Eh Manas Daihee Payee” what does it mean?” Gursikh said, “We have come into human form after serving Guru Ji and doing simran.” Sant Ji questioned that if after serving Guru and doing simran we come into human form then what would liberate us from this human form because surely simran and seva will only bring us back to human form according to you.
Hearing this gursikh was a bit surprised and had no answer. Then he folded his hands and said, “Please enlighten me with real meanings.” Sant Ji said, “First sit equal to sangat on the floor then we will talk.” Gursikh got up from the bed and sat on the floor then Sant Ji explained the meanings with so many examples. After hearing such beautiful veechar the gursikh left. He said he thought that Sant Ji probably did not have much understanding of Gurbani but he was wrong.
