‘Guru Nanak Chamatkar', is the magical divine glory of Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, his teachings and the magical exuberance that he created with several anecdotes of true life stories of people getting inspired by his teachings and the lessons taught. It is first volume or part of the book named ‘Guru Nanak Chamatkar’. In the first chapter readers are made aware of the ‘Miracles of Higher Spheres’ i.e. the Lord and his miracle and how he commanded Guru Nanak Devji to set out for a journey to the earth to end the sufferings of people. The Guru came to this earth to enlightened the troubled souls full of mistaken beliefs, many types of vices, hatred, superstitions and useless rituals. Therefore the Lord said- “0 Nanak, You are immersed in my love. I command thee to bless the people. Guru Nanak Dev believed religiousness is important to control minds which is otherwise engulfed in useless thought and other manipulations.
Guru Nanak Dev was the first Guru of the Sikh religious body considered the savior who reformed minds and filled their eyes with spiritual nectar through constantly imbibing in minds the loving and godly recitation of the name of the lord. Guru Nanak Dev he is compared to a tree with its branches and that grow separated to the roots but still is very much connected. Similarly, the Guru, always immersed in the love of the Lord, out of benevolence, like the branch of a tree separate but connected, left to bear the hardships of the world. The eyes full of this nector see what lies inwards, the beauty of the Lord and the ultimate revival of the common man from the vices of the world. You rise above time and space hardly identifying any of it but only the recitation of the Lord within your senses.
The Guru’s childhood is depicted and the magical appearance of the Lord in the form of the Guru was very much prevalent. He was declared a prophet by the priest you used to visit Guru Nanak Dev right from the day of birth. The priest knew this child was different, his forehead is radiant and miracles (Chamatkar) happened through him to enlighten the world and spread the message of love, brotherhood and the involvement of everything that is godly and religious in this world. This and more related to Guru Nanak Dev’s life continue to fill minds with knowledge of Guru’s words and his encouragement to recite God’s name for at least five minutes a day.
In a nutshell, though difficult to just stay in such a small space of a nutshell, the Guru’s teachings enlighten minds and fill it with Lord’s prayers. He states- “Our mind can arise only if we love God, loving him is remembering him, and to remember is reciting his name as O Lord O lord O lord or WaheGuru, Waheguru, WaheGuru WaheGuru.”
