Guru Hargobind Arriving in Amritsar


Upcoming on the Suraj Podcast:


Guru Hargobind arrives back in Amritsar after spending time in the Gwalior jail. The Great Poet Santokh Singh, in the Suraj Prakash [1843 CE], beautifully describes this scene analogizing Guru Hargobind akin to a full moon, the city of Amritsar as the ocean, and the waves of people running towards the Guru as the waves of a high tide, (also called a spring tide), which is caused by a full moon.

ਸ੍ਰੀ ਹਰਿ ਗੋਵਿੰਦ ਪੂਰਨ ਚੰਦ । ਪੁਰਿ ਸਗਰੋ ਸਾਗਰ ਮਾਨਿੰਦ ।

It's as if the Exalted Guru Hargobind was like the moon, and the city of Amritsar, like the ocean.

ਧਾਇ ਧਾਇ ਨਰ ਦੇਖਨਿ ਆਵੈਂ । ਮਨਹੁ ਤਰੰਗ ਉਤੰਗ ਉਠਾਵੈਂ ।

And the waves of people running to come see the Guru are like the high tides [as a result of the full moon].


- Gurpratap Suraj Prakash [1843 CE], author: the Great Poet Santokh Singh

Raas 5, Chapter 8
