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.
