just three weeks ago i had finished my regular punjabi school at guru nanak darbur erith gurdwara in england; when i was rushing to the small library. dressed in my bana i rushed and zoomed past an old man and his elderly freind full gursikhs they were.

the man looked a bit like the famous akj saint who began the akhand kirtani jhata anyway my mind judged him for that.

me not being consious of my thought let it trip first i was at shock to see the elder and then leading to the judgement my mind said {just another one of those akj idiots!} but i rejected it as soon as it was thought rushing having no time for thought!

just as i had passed 50 cm from the elder i heard him call me thus turning to the voice he dragged me in with his positive energy he then questioned my name, and imediatly wisperd to his freind i think its him or this might be the one or its some one else, emidiatly i said gavinpal again he asked for my name with the same wisper to his friend and i again reply gavinpal this cariied on three more times the last two times i replyed gavin then he said to me no tell me you real name anyone in the house of the guru who doesnt do so is a robber or a feeth again asked for my name i shocked and slightly gobsmaked replyed gavin again and he said no ! this cant be your name again he asked untill i gave up and said i dont know. he said you should look your are wearing bana you are a sahibsyada of the guru a prince we princes have roamed the jungles we are singhs! now dont forget it we are singhs!i then realized what the guru god and the sant had taught me normally i would say nihang gavinpal singh khalsa but this is in ego beacuse im not khalsa niether a nihang and truthfully from within i know i havent earnt singh or nihang or khalsa but i dream of the day. he then lovingly embraced be and said bring your mother and family to mu house one day we may neeed to talk i guess they found who they were looking for but i dont know what for? i now feel i have earned singh and so i am gavin singh soon to be akali nihang and khalsa!

i knew from within that i couldt tell anyone this my teacher from punjabi school brushed by taking not but notice my freinds laughed at me when i accepted the freindly embrace ! but who was i to tell i couldnt bring my family to some random sants house. off i rushed to the library and to my dads car. dreading the thought of bumping into the sant. well i guess god knows our pre intentions and vut the family visit short by the sant ...

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsaa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!

Ofcource you are a Singh! If you are Amritdhari, and Guru ji's beloved, you are a Singh! :) Never say your name without Singh. It tells people that you are the son of Guru Gobind SINGH Maharaj ji. (Is'nt that cool, Guru ji gave us their own name! :D )

And, It actually happened to me too once. I won't really call myself Khalsa myself, but I won't say anything if someone else says it. But don't even say you are not a khalsa too because Guru ji dosn't like it if we do that. Guru Nanak dev ji in baani called themselves worm, who are we to call ourselves khalsa? And yes! DO WATCH THE EGO! .... we are nothing our own anyways right... we have already given our heads in Amrit Sanchar how can we now say I am this and that. If we have a good quality, it is Guru Sahibs! He is the only possessor of qualities. If we do something good, remember what you say in Fateh!

And thank you for sharing your story!!!

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsaa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!!

Really? Why not Amrit if you love Guru Sahib ji so much?
