Images of inspiring Gurmukh souls

I have always been inspired by the radiance spread by the mere presence of a Gurmukh which helps me come even more closer to my Guru. Then there are pictures and paintings of those Gurmukhs we have never met in our lifetime, and yet just by looking at them, the spirit soars to new heights and love for the Guru begins to fill in ourselves. What a wonderful roop the Guru has blessed us with – the very sight of which reminds of the Guru and of His virtues which need to be cultivated within us. Like a child who learns by looking at pictures, a Sikh learns from meeting Gurmukhs who are amongst us. Just looking at a Gurmukh is enough to remind us of our roots and to adopt a more virtuous lifestyle. So the next time you look at yourself in the mirror, adorned with the bana of the Guru (full kesh and dastaar), you will see the Guru within you . . .

Here are some images that inspire me to walk the path of the Guru – for these are not just mere individuals – their roop is complimented by the immense amount of bhagti (devotion) by living the way of the Gurmukh as instructed by our Gurus whose spirit is now rested in the Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

    Certainly very inspiring pictures. The beauty of a Sikh, but today’s’ generation wants to look “smart” as they say and get rid of there hair. Little do they know this is a very special identity we were given, the Kesh the dastar the Kripan, the kanga, the kada. The kada which has become a fashion! The sikhs who argues that the times were different then and refuses to keep kesh and tie a dastar should not wear a kada as well as it is also a kakar.
