Vahiguru created everything, and Vahiguru is all around us. Thank you all for joining us throughout this glowing journey we’ve all had with one another. It has been a pleasure sharing the sakhis of Guru Nanak Sahib.
The sakhi of how Guru Angad Sahib and Guru ji met is momentous. Their paths crossed at the perfect time. Guru Angad Sahib was Bhai Lehna ji at that time. Guru ji’s wisdom was something that Bhai Lehna ji was absolutely missing in his life.
Do you know about Bhumi? The rich landlord from Dhaka, India? Well, if you don’t know of him, hit the play button. This is a sakhi you’re not going to want to miss. There’s a reason why Bhumi was so rich.
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.
Vahiguru exists in everyone – even in those who don’t embody what Guru ji stood for. Surprisingly, mean people also have Vahiguru in them; they just have forgotten that. All they need is a special reminder from a place of love that Vahiguru is in them.
The next sakhi in our series takes us to the town of Puri, in India. The Mayor of the town invited Guru ji and Bhai Mardana to listen to Aarti , a special prayer performed by the priests. Guru ji happily accepted.

In this episode, we delve into Malik Bhago, a very wealthy and powerful man who held a feast for the gods and goddesses to seek their blessings. Guru ji was the only one who refused his invitation.
Our next podcast takes place in Tulamba, focusing on a man named Sajjan and an inn he ran for travelers to stay overnight. Over time, Sajjan began engaging in a very unhealthy habit, which negatively affected travelers.
