Guru Nanak:"Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God."

Canada: Kevin Vickers has vocally supported Canadian Sikhs right to wear Kirpan in Parliament.

The man being hailed as a hero for reportedly shooting a gunman in Canada’s national parliament is Kevin Vickers, who, as the holder of the post of sergeant-at-ams, is officially responsible for safety and security within the grounds of the building.

The role’s ceremonial element has resulted in something of a public profile for Vickers – in black robes, he carries a ceremonial gold mace into the House of Commons before every sitting. But he also has very real powers in relation to controlling access to the building.

Hukumnama Darbar Sahib

Harmandir Sahib Hukumnama : Sat 25 October, 2014
O dear friend, know this in your mind. The world is entangled in its own pleasures; no one is for anyone else. || 1 || Pause || In good times, many come and sit together, surrounding you on all four sides. But when hard times come, they all leave, and no one comes near you. || 1 || Your wife, whom you love so much, and who has remained ever attached to you, runs away crying, Ghost! Ghost!, as soon as the swan-soul leaves this body. || 2 || This is the way they act those whom we love so much. At the very last moment, O Nanak, no one is any use at all, except the Dear Lord. || 3 || 12 || 139 ||
