AMRITSAR  
The Citadel of Sikhism

For, the very sight of devotees in their hundreds chanting hymns with utmost veneration in consonance with the priests sitting before the opened books of the holy scripture very well testifies to the fact of the potency of the word. In full life! The sight of the congregation absorbed in chanting, lifts the souls of the visitors and transports them to regions of bliss. Neither the newness of the language, nor novelty of chanting stands in the way. of communion of the visitors souls with the all compassionate Divinity hovering over the shrine. Even atheists and non-conformists too, I am sure, find themselves oblivious of environs, and inspire themselves to get sunk in the ocean of bliss; for there is no religious symbol, nor theistic representation found or referred to here that may likely bar their soulful involvement, unconsciously even. Further, as the verses inscribed resemble some artistic designs, they command not any. wilful physical or religious inhibition. When the atmosphere gets charged with mellifluous tunes of the hymns and Gurubani, it enkindles devotion and awakens the awareness of man's insignificance against God's omnipotence. The religious ecstasy thus roused, besides conferring indescribable mental peace, makes one feel that he is elevated to heaven, being freed from cares and anxieties. What is heaven after all, if not an abode, inspiring noblest thoughts, highest aspirations and purest actions in human breast? All this elevated, inexplicable ethereal bliss flows down from a book-if spoken in terms of components, is nothing but some sheets made of pulp with some letters on it printed and brought under covers. How fantastic! Very few can claim the honour of binding a community of people noted for their vibrating heroism, together with exemplary vivacity and flawless spirituality as this.
