...The heaven on earth...the biggest shrine in the Sikh religion ... my day starts officially ..with the live telecast of golden temple and all the rituals performed by our priests in the morning... It is a place of both stupendous beauty and sublime peacefulness. Beautiful memories of Amritsar take my years back ..running on the white marble floor as a kid and then sitting next to sarovar for hours and listening to evening Aardas performed by the priest... ..The whole place has an aura .. which cannot be denied..Sometimes I feel leaving India ..the biggest loss of my life is when I cannot visit Harmandir Sahib.. There is no other place or Gurudwara in this world which has that charisma like Harmandir sahib..so divine ,pure and Captivating...In one word place ,where we can feel his power ..the Diety himself .. his presence is felt when we look at the beautiful Golden temple standing amidst of everything.. Echoing across the sarovar, this enchantingly beautiful music induces a delicate yet powerful state of trance in the pilgrims strolling leisurely around the marble concourse encircling the sarovar and temple. People all over the world visit this place want to see the artifacts and how it is built in Gold..Golden Temple is widely regarded as being amongst the most tastefully decorated shrines anywhere. The art and architecture of the temple has been praised lavishly by generations....
My mom who belongs to Amritsar ..and my Nanu(moms father) who spent his whole life in service to Harmandir sahib(head priest ....Golden temple) last days of their life donated everything they had in cash to Harmindar sahib..from where they got everything.. people of Amritsar still remember him ..when they read their names on the outerwalls....of Golden temple.. His power is supreme and it can be felt...all we need is to..Feel..
