Guidance from the Almighty

23 Guidance from the Almighty

“ਅਠਸਠਿ ਤੀਰਥ ਸਗਲ ਪੁੰਨ ਜੀਅ ਦਇਆ ਪਰਵਾਨੁ ॥ athsath tirath sagal punn jee-a da-i-aa parvaan.
Be kind to all beings-this is more meritorious than bathing at the sixty-eight sacred shrines of pilgrimage and the giving of charity”. (Guru Granth Sahib)

This was shot at the Athsath Tirath, in front of the Golden Temple in Amritsar (Punjab).
The leaves in the tree were playing making shadows and leaving the sunset golden light coming on the devotees who were in praise in front of the marble platform.
This minor section of the Temple complex, which is in the center of the eastern bank of the Amrit-sarovar, abounds in much sanctity, it is said bathing once at the Athsath Tirath is as auspicious as the pilgrimage of the 68 holy places in India.

I always enjoy visiting this place and staying among the people, each time it gives me peace and strength and I believe that whether you are Sikh or not, whatever can be your religion, you can share the same over here.
