Barah Maha: Savan

The fifth month of Barah Maha is Savan. From mid-July to mid-August, there is a great relief for the agrarian societies that have spent the last few months working in the scorching heat. With the rainy season, beauty arises, and vegetation goes green. Animals are joyous, and humans are drenched in the wonders of the rain. There is cause for celebration. The human-bride’s inquisition hones in on the misalignment between the feel-good celebration of the external season and the feeling inside. How can you enjoy anything when the love of your life is not present? The pleasantry that everyone experiences are daunting to her. Join the human-bride as she seeks discovery of celebration and joy at a time where there is an absence of connection and intimacy.

Episode 9: Vahiguru Is Everywhere | Getting to Know Guru Nanak Sahib | Sojhi: A KidsCast

The next sakhi takes us to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Around the year 1525, Guru ji and Bhai Mardana arrived in Mecca. Guru ji’s interaction with the qazi (a Muslim scholar) was very shaky at first because the qazi thought Guru ji was disrespectful. The qazi felt that Guru ji should not be pointing his feet towards the Kaa’ba. To the qazi, Vahiguru existed only in Kaa’ba. Guru ji tuned into this and made it a point to educate the qazi that Vahiguru is all around us. Vahiguru created everything and exists within every heart. It’s important to see what the meaning of such truly is. Listen to this podcast to enlighten your mind about Vahiguru.
