The Guru Is the Boat


The other day we had our “Secretariat meetings” (described in the previous blog post) which was hosted by some of the Sikh youth here. Before the meeting Nirmal Singh (one of the youth here) was assigned the task of giving an introduction about each of the Gurus. As he started doing his research, he kept coming across the metaphor of “The Gurus being a boat to ferry us across this world ocean”. It occurred to him that each Guru has unique qualities and as a result was probably a different kind of “boat”. This is a story of the different qualities of each Guru and which type of “boat” he relates to them.

It is a fun, yet educational story. When I was listening I was anxious to hear which boat he related to each Guru.
