The Humble Heart of a Sikh

Bhai Gurdas Ji says about the humble heart of a Sikh,

I respectfully bow to those who have power, yet remain humble
I respectfully bow to those who have status, remain meek
I respectfully bow to those who have wisdom, appear ingenuous
I respectfully bow to those who are resigned to the Will of God
I respectfully bow to those, who devotedly follow the Guru’s way of life
I respectfully bow to those, who live like a guest in this temporary world
Such persons are honoured both in this world and in God’s Court

Normally power brings vanity, conceit, arrogance, and egotism. In such vanity humanity takes to wings and savagery and barbarism become homely. With status, meekness, disappears and man becomes selfish and self-centered. He does not resign to the Will of God, but has his own ways of living and believes more in illusions of pleasure and merry-making. He works out ways for his own destruction. He loses respect, honour and status in this world and works for his own downfall.

In another hymn, Bhai Gurdas Ji says, The Guru oriented Sikhs are humble in spirit, for they eliminate their pride and vanity. They gain wisdom and enlightenment from the Guru’s teaching, and dispels their ignorance and superstition.

A Sikh who can bow to others in

humility is honoured in God’s Court
