Guru Nanak Arrived at a Quarrelsome Village - Stories to Transform Your Life
The Sant Mat Quote of the Day:
Once, during the course of his travels, Guru Nanak arrived at a village where the people were a quarrelsome lot. He blessed them and asked them to prosper and live in that village forever. In the next village, where the people were peace-loving, Guru Nanak blessed them too but asked them to abandon the village and disperse. Mardana, his close disciple, puzzled by the guru’s strange blessings, asked him why he blessed the first village with prosperity though its people were unworthy of it, and asked the good people of the second village to disperse. Guru Nanak smiled and answered: "The quarrelsome will only spread unrest and friction wherever they go. So I asked them to remain where they were. But it is better for the peace-loving to disperse and take their good qualities with them so that all those who know them can learn the art of peaceful coexistence."

Varen Singh Bisht- nice one....been listening this story from my childhood.
Matt Peatman- Nanak is da boss, i love that guy
Sant Mat- Yes, Nanak is one of the greatest Saints and Master-Souls in the history of the world. I always recommend people study his Jap Ji (Morning Prayer) and Sidh Ghost, his dialogue with the Yogis.
Maria A Hbp- Do you know where I can get a copy of the Sidh Ghost ? I've never read it before, please? Thanks !
Sant Mat- Here's one online translation of it:
Neetu Mahtani- dhan guru nanak
Siri Sundri Kaur- waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji kik fateh
Amrita Dharamdasani- waheguru
Sidhant Jv- awesome
