Quest for Light
Lakha Singh was a devoted satsangi from Amritsar. Once, when he was in Nanded in Maharashtra, he met an old man. Both the men wanted to go to a temple and they decided to travel together. On their way, they came across a jungle inhabited by tigers, leopards and other carnivorous beasts. When night came, they lost their way. They saw nothing but the jungle all around them.
The old man felt helpless and started to cry. He was convinced that they would be devoured by a wild animal. Lakha Singh, however, was in a different state of mind. He quietly sat down in meditation. Baba Jaimal Singh appeared to him inside and said, “Walk a mile and a half towards the right and you will come to a footpath. Go on this path and soon you will come to a small village. From there, you will find your way.”
When the two men walked a mile and half to their right, they found the footpath and the village. They spent the night in the village. The next morning they left for the gurdwara and reached their destination.
Satguru is always with us. It is we, who lack faith and do not put in the effort to sustain this belief.
