How I got interested into Gurmat.... hmmm..

Well I guess there was one event in my life which really did it for me. I lived in a small town growing up, there were a lot of racists where I lived. It was tough. I still had some friends though. Once when I was 16 I asked my dad if I could go out with some friends to watch a movie. My dad said no, because I needed to concentrate more on my homework. I got really upset for some reason. I was filled with anger and bitterness. I ran right to the Barber shop.

Once I got there, I took off my turban and quickly asked the Barber to cut my hair. The barber was a really nice old white man. He asked me if I was sure about cutting my hair. I yelled out, "YES!!"

The barber asked me again and I kept persisting, But he wouldn't do it, I kept wondering why. There was this smile on his face the whole time. After a few minutes I simply got frustrated and ran home. Once I got there, I told my dad what had happened and said "Give me something right now, a book, a story, anything, that will prevent me from doing something like this again."

He gave me a few books including Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh Jee's autobiography along with other more basic books on Gurmat. After that I truly became interested in Gurmat, And shortly afterwards at the next smagam I took amrit - the greatest experience of my life.

Vaheguru jee kaa khalsaa, Vaheguru jee kee Fateh!
