One of GuruSahibJee’ssikhs, BhaiGopalaJee obtained shudhsanthya from Guru Arjun Dev Sahib Jee himself. Bhai Sahib gets up and does Benti to Guru Hargobind Sahib Maharaj to give him the strength and blessing to recite Sri Jap Ji Sahib. Pleased, GuruSahib gave BhaiGopalaJee a seat at the highest point of the congregation Sitting infront of GuruSahib, BhaiGopalaJee first contemplated on Sahib Sri Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Jee’s name and then began to recite Sri JapJi Sahib Jee. The importance of doing ShudhBanee cannot be understated. If GuruSahib himself was about to give his throne based on the correct recitation of Bani, imagine how much significance reciting ShudhBanee holds. . With full focus and concentration he recited IkOankar with correct pronunciation and characters. Then he continued in the same manner with Satnam Upon hearing the beautiful Banee, Guru Hargobind Sahib Jee bowed down to the GurshabadBanee. Then Gurusahb proceeds to clasp his hands and pay reverence to BhaiGopalaJee. Upon hearing the Banee, GuruSahib was overcome with euphoria. He was so pleased with the way BhaiGopalaJee was doing Banee that he thought to himself, what could I possibly give in return for hearing Banee so beautifully? If I make him emperor of the world, thats temporal. What should be given to award such beautiful recitation of Banee? GuruSahib looked to the sangat and did Benti to all his sikhs. He asked if there is any sikh who can recite Sri JapJi Sahib Jee correctly with all the characters and full focus. GuruSahib was so pleased that he gave Bhai Sahib blessings after granting him the royal horse. Bhai Sahib’s life was blessed and he was free from the birth and death cycle. He was liberated from all his sorrow and pains in the physical and afterlife Upon the victory of the Second Hargobindpur battle, Guru Hargobind Sahib Jee had set up a congregation for the sangat and the fallen Shaeeds. After the war Gurusahib’s state of mind was one of gratitude and calmness . With their heart full of love, Guru Hargobind Sahib Jee decided to give him the one kingdom that was eternal: Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Jee’s Throne. Guru Sahib moved one of his knees to get up from their throne and give the Gursikh their seat( BhaiGopalajee’s concentration was dissrupted and a though crossed his mind that Guruji would gift him a royal horse from GuruSahib’s stable. Understanding BhaiSahib’s sudden thought, GuruSahib gets up at the completion of JapJi Sahib and hugs BhaiGopalaJee. Guru Sahib tells him that ‘I was about to give you Guru Nanak Dev Jee’s crown had you not asked for a horse Guru Sahib goes on further to say that any wishes that you may ever have will come to fruitation instantly.
