Guru Nanak prakash utsav

I visited the Nagar Keertan yesterday, on the occasion of Gurn Nanak Prakash Utsav. Prakash Utsav means celebrating the day the Divine Light (of Knowledge) spread.

The thought that struck me during the hymn singing was this:

ਸਾਧੂ ਸੰਗਿ ਸਿਖਾਇਓ ਨਾਮੁ ||
ਸਰਬ ਮਨੋਰਥ ਪੂਰਨ ਕਾਮ ||

The translation:

In the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, the Naam (Lord’s True Name) is learned; (and through the Lord’s Name) all desires and tasks are fulfilled.

It struck me because it very simply conveys the fact that the Lord’s Name is one stop solution to fulfillment of tasks. There is no need to be superstitious – go take refuge in the Name of the Almighty.
