Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee & Kaljug
Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee & Kaljug
 The following is a narration of the meeting between Sri Guru NanakDev Jee & Kaljug, it has been written by Kavi Santokh Singh Jee in“Guru Nanak Parkash” the following is the translation of the summary that Giani Gian Singh has written of the story.Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee was on his missionary tour, when he andBhai Mardana Jee became seated to have a rest. Upon being seated, afrightful storm began, this storm was carrying much debris and thewhole sky and surrounding area was shroud in darkness. Nothing athands length could be seen, such was the force of the storm. BhaiMardana Jee put a cloth over his mouth and lay down on the ground.He said to Guru Jee, “If I die at this dreadful spot I won’t even get my funeral rites carried out and won’t even be buried, travelling with youI have encountered much suffering.” Guru Jee laughed and said,“Why are you scared, nothing will harm you.” Then a frightful demon appeared, whose head was in the sky and hisfeet were implanted deep into the earth, his nostrils were deep like awell and he had long teeth, he was gigantic, he made his way towardsGuru Jee. Bhai Mardana Jee getting scared said, “Maharaj! We havesurvived the storm but now our deaths are almost certain, we won’tsurvive an encounter with this giant.” Guru Jee calmly replied,“Mardana! He will not come near you, do not be afraid meditate onVaheguru.” Then Kaljug changed his form again, now he took theform of fire and smoke emanated from all pores of his physical being.He finally changed his form again into a frightful one, yet Guru Jeeremained calm and unconcerned. After all this Kaljug decided thatGuru Jee must be a prophet and he thus accordingly changed into aman, in the form of a man Kaljug carried a tongue in one hand and apenis in the other, and he made his way to Guru Jee. Guru Jee saidto Bhai Maradana Jee, come along and watch this drama, which istaking place. Kaljug bowed his head to Guru Jee as obeisance andsupplicated, “Maharaj! Please forgive me for my mistakes, I did notknow of your fame and greatness, in this age I rule, I am in thisphysical form of a man as I am displaying to you what passionshumans are being led by. Humans will disregard all virtue and will beled by passions of the tongue and penis, and in turn their lives will bedictated by these passions.”Guru Jee pryingly asked, “Who are you – what is your name? Why have you come to meet us?” Kaljug replied, “My name is Kaljug and Ihave come to meet you to pay my respects to you, I initially changedinto the various forms to test you.” Guru jee further questioned,“What are your characteristics? You said it is your rule in this age,then with what army do you enforce your Rule?”Kaljug replied, my greatest warrior is falsehood – falsehood carries theflag at the forefront of my army. Worldly attachment is the King of all.My army general is violence and murder. Lust, anger, greed and egoare my warriors on elephant back. Jealousy, gossip, slander, robbery and unfulfilled craving for worldly things – are all warriors on
chariots. Laziness, gambling, alcohol/intoxicants and other badactions are warriors on horse back. Attachment to others, sin of wantand steeling are my foot-soldiers. Wherever I make advances with my army, I am always victorious. My warriors of falsehood and anger,have made me victorious everywhere. These are the characteristics of my reign. Upon listening to Kaljugs narration of the current state of the world Guru jee uttered,

Whoever is in charge, is humiliated. Why should the servant be afraid,
 The servant is not afraid as he has nothing to lose as he is not theruler, the servant can freely move about without fear of consequencebut the ruler is bound by his rule and duties.

So Guru Jee said that even if you do rule, it is you (Kaljug) who is alsohumiliated for these actions in your rule. Guru Jee further said thatif it is your rule now and I am the servant of God, when your rulecomes to an end it will be due to this servant – Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee. Kaljug replied that this is the reason I have come to youMaharaj, because there is no difference between you and God, I willgive you a house to live in which will be made of Gold and Pearls. Inthis house I will use sandalwood and will spray Kastoori (the bestscent in the world) – where you will enjoy your abode with muchhappiness. Kaljug begged Maharaj to accept his offering and Guru Jee replied,
