Dear Quinta, after that debacle I thought that this story would be appropriate.
but just add that we all are true warriors by just simply putting up with each other, tomi.
A TRUE WARRIOR
(A short story)
Once there was a father and daughter. The father was a true SARBLOH WARRIOR, a true SANT-SIPAHI and he had been given a saropa for his braveness from Guru Gobind Singh Jee.
The daughter once said to her father when very young "Father, when I grow up I want to be a true SARBLOH WARRIOR like you."
The father replied, "daughter, you will only be a true Sarbloh Warrior when you are able to answer one question - "How do you worship GOD?"
The daughter looked at her father confused. The father sent his daughter to the greatest swordsmen to learn the art of fighting. Ten years later she became skilled in twenty weapons. The father returned and asked his daughter - "How do you worship GOD?"
Again she couldn't answer. He said, "Then you are still not a true Sarbloh Warrior!" Then he left. He returned ten years later. She could now take on more than fifty people at one time alone. He again asked her the question she couldn't answer. He tookout his kirpaan and attacked her while she was standing, but she failed to draw her shaster and protect herself. He asked her again -"How do You Worship GOD?" She could not answer.
5 years later her training was over and she became one of the best. She could fight blindfolded and take on anyone. But her father still said that she wasn't a Sarbloh Warrior. One day, while she was about to go to sleep, her father attacked her and she awoke and drew her sword, blocked and threw her father to the floor. He then asked her - "How do you worship GOD?" and then she realised and she replied: "ALWAYS!"
He said, "Well done my daughter, now you are a TRUE Sarbloh Warrior, from within and without!"
A TRUE SARBLOH WARRIOR is always ready and never forgets the SARBLOH KHARAG (KIRPAN), and never forgets the GIAN KHARAG (NAAM) , and the SARBLOH WARRIOR keeps both ready and close to their heart AT ALL TIMES, *ALWAYS* and forever and ever and ever...
SATGURU GIAN KHARAG GUR HAT DEENA, JAMKANKAR MAAR BIDARE
The True Guru has placed the sword of spiritual wisdom in my hands; I have overcome and slain the Messenger of Death (Guru Amar Das Sahib Jee)
JAA KO HAR RANG LAGO IS JUG ME SOI KEHAT HE SURA
Only those who are coloured in rang of the Naam within the age of Kaliyug, are known as true warriors
DHAN JIO TE KO JAG ME MUKH TE HAR CHIT ME JUDH VICHARE
Only know them to be great, who have the Name of God on their lips and have the state of mind to fight for justice ALWAYS. (Guru Gobind Singh Jee)
SADA SADA JAPEEYAI HAR NAAM, POORAN HOE MAN KE KAAM
In the early hours of the morning, I chant the Lord's Name. I have fashioned a shelter for myself, here and hereafter. Forever and ever, I chant the Lord's Name, and the desires of my mind are fulfilled.
