Messy Face Charanjeet Kaur after having a snack of jam and cashew button on a rice cracker.

She didn’t bother with the rice cracker and just licked off all the jam (thus the messy face). The joys of being a kid and not worrying about being neat and clean! Hahaha…

Fun in the tub. Looking for sea life…

On Saturday morning me and Narayan went to the Gurdwara to do Ishnaan Seva. Everything is removed from the Gurdwara and totally cleaned. The carpets are vacuumed and rolled up and then we wash the marble floors with water.

Prabhu, Narayan and Ravinder washing the area were Guruji sits.

I thought it looked pretty cool and very different totally empty as apposed to the full Gurdwara. It was quite nice being there in the morning doing this seva, and Narayan was doing such a great job helping with everything.

During the cleaning we move the two Siri Guru Granth Sahib’s to a different location. It was quite a feeling to hold the Siri Guru Granth Sahib on my head. There was something about the magnificence and and spirit of our Guruji that really touched me. It caught me by surprise since I don’t think I have ever carried Guruji before. It’s probably a similar feeling for someone to take their first hukamnama.

It was a good weekend. (The power supply on my computer died off on Sunday, so I wasn’t able to post the pictures till today when I get a replacement)

    There is great significance in sewa . You are actually creating an environment for good upbringing of Narayan Iam sure it will hold Narayan in good stead through the ups and downs of life . MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

    I cherish the concept of raising children to learn such purity and selflessness as you do. I really appreciate the concept of sewa. However, I did not know that this specific form of organized service existed and I am now interested in learning more about it.

    However, I have always been this way in the real world. I am often confused when other humans do not share my perspective.

    Isn’t it normal to do for others without expecting rewards? Is it a fundamental characteristic of human behavior?
