from the chapter - Philosophy and Maryada

lory of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj was not limited to few decades nor was it restricted to emancipation of a surging wave of humanity in His physical life-span. His Glory transcends time and space. He set in motion a Holy Maryada, a spiritual culture and tradition which has set the pace for regeneration and redemption of mankind for generations to come. In a divine mood, He had once remarked-

  “The Holy Flag of Guru Nanak will flutter atop in all the corners of the world, the whole universe will bow in homage to Sri Guru Granth Sahib, holy Gurmukhi will be the most respected language and the Holy Maryada of this house (pointing towards the Thaath) will spread and sweep across every living home.”  
  Eternal Glory of Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj will manifestly shine in the whole world.  

We all identify ourselves with our body and name. All the Holy Gurus in line of succession identified themselves with the Holy Name of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib. Sri Guru Nanak Sahib out of compassion has chosen to identify Himself with the Holy Body of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. It is His unbounded Mercy for us that He chose this sacred identification for our sake, so that we could talk to Him, we could hear Him, we could serve and love Him in this Holy Body, perceptible to our physical senses. And it is again out of compassion that He has chosen to reveal Himself in all His splendour and glory to the chosen few, His true Divine lovers from this Divine Body and Form. Sri Guru Nanak Sahib has not merely identified Himself with this Holiest of the Holy scripture but eternally dwells and resides in Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

Bhagat Nam Dev's innocent child-like approach, sincere and deep bhavna converted a stone image into God who had to, perforce, gracefully accept the offered milk. Bhagat Dhana's pleadings, implorings and later resolve to fast unto death compelled the Lord to appear from the stone and accept the offered food. Their's was not the Pathar Drishti or Stone Bhavna. Bhagwan Drishti and God Bhavna converted the stone image into God.

Pointing towards Sri Guru Granth Sahib -

  Eh Jeonda, Jaagda, Bolda, Guru Nanak Hai
  Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj  
  Sri Guru Granth Sahib is the Living, awake Sri Guru Nanak Sahib who talks.  

A true lover of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib is not content with mere Kitab Drishti or Book Bhavna in Sri Guru Granth Sahib. With proper orientation of mind, with yearning Guru Drishti, with Nirankar Bhavna, he loves and worships Sri Guru Granth Sahib as the living Sri Guru Nanak Sahib, as the living Lord.
