I'm usually one to really keep things to myself, but after these 2 days, there's so much that I'm feeling and going through after knowing that Bhai Sahib is no longer in this world for me to go and talk to whenever I feel like it. I have so many special memories of Bhai Sahib and having the kirpa of being in his sangat for so many years. A lot of people believed that Bhai Sahib was one of the MOST strictest Singhs EVER because of the way they lived their life, but most of the memories I have of Bhai Sahib are when I was laughing my head off with him!
One memory that I will never forget is that even before I took amrit 8-9 years ago, I tried tying a dastar just to get used to it. I was over at Bhai Sahib's house for a few days during the summer break and his daughters were helping me learn to tie a dastar. Once, Bhai Sahib caught me standing in front of the mirror trying to tie my dastar by myself and I guess it wasn't turning out so well because he came in laughing and asked me what I was doing, which in turn made me laugh hysterically just by looking at him. It was the funniest reaction from him that I sooooo wasn't expecting! Then, he actually took the time to stand there with me and told me to take the dastar off and open my hair and then he actually took my hair, put it in a joora and started tying my dastar for me and showed me how to continue on with it. This was one of the greatest experiences in my life with Bhai Sahib.
Another great memory that I'll cherish forever is when Bhai Sahib found out that one of my favourite things to eat is yellow daal. While at their house one day, Bhai Sahib made yellow daal and according to some other people that ate the daal, they complained that there wasn't enough salt and spices in it and that it had no flavour. When I had the daal I absolutely LOVED it and kept praising Bhai Sahib for making my favourite daal so delicious and then laughingly I told Bhai Sahib that I'm not usually one that can tell if there's too little or too much salt in daals and subjis so anything is good to me. Bhai Sahib burst into laughter and told me that he and I were special like that because we can eat tasteless food and still enjoy it without complaints
These are just 2 of many memories I have with Bhai Sahib, but I just can't express all the inspiration and love I and others felt around such an amazing Gurmukh. May Guru Sahib bless us all with such a jeevani.
