>>> vaheguru ji ka khalsa vaheguru ji ke fateh

>>> pyare jio, a nice post forwarded to me by a local Gursikh.....

>>> Several years ago, a gyanee from out-of-town accepted a call to a
>>> Gurdwara in canada

>>> Some weeks after he arrived, he had an occasion to ride the bus from
>>> his home to the downtown area. When he sat down, he discovered that the
>>> driver had accidentally given him a quarter too much change. As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, "You'd better give the quarter back. It would be wrong
>>> to keep it." Then he thought, "Oh, forget it, it's only a quarter. Who
>>> would worry about this little amount?

>>> Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never miss it.
>>> Accept it as a gift from Vaheguru and keep quiet.

>>> When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, then he handed
>>> the quarter to the driver and said, "Here, you gave me too much change."

>>> The driver, with a smile, replied, "Aren't you the new Gyanee in
>>> town? I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I
>>> just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change. I ' ll
>>> see you at gurdwara on Sunday."

>>> When the Gyanee stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the
>>> nearest light pole, held on, and said, "Oh Vaheguru, I almost sold your Son for a quarter."

>>> Our lives are the only Teachings some people will ever read. This is a really scary example of how much people watch us as Sikhs and will put us to the test! Always be on guard -- and remember -- You carry the name of Guru ji on your shoulders when you call yourself "sikh."

>>> Watch your thoughts; they become words.

>>> Watch your words; they become actions.

>>> Watch your actions; they become habits.

>>> Watch your habits; they become character.

>>> Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
