JODHA. BHAI

(0 votes)

JODHA. BHAI, and Bhai Jamu, both Dhutta Khatris, waited upon Guru Arjan and said: "Lord, you tell us to recite the Name of God with concentration, but our minds wander. What shall we do?" The Guru replied, "He who conquers the mind conquers all. Practising the Name will itself help you restrain the mind from roaming. By repeating God`s Name, you will achieve single pointed attention and your liberation as well." Bhai Jodha and Bhai Jamu followed the advice, says Bhai Mani Singh, and attained liberation.

World Gurudwaras

World Gurudwaras will strive to be most comprehensive directory of Historical Gurudwaras and Non Historical Gurudwaras around the world.The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
