Bhagat Namdev ji and a Dog

Sab Gobind Hai Sab Gobind Hai Gobind Bin Nahin Koi - ( Aasaa Saint Nam Dev - Guru Granth Sahib Page 485 )
=> God is everything, God is everything. Without God, there is nothing at all.

"Truth and unity are one. One supreme Reality pervades the whole universe. A true devotee of God has a universal vision, a --perceeption of oneness. Bhagat Namdev perceives his Lord everywhere and sings the Glory of his all pervading Lord accordingly in the foregoing hymn."

God's name was always on the lips of Bhagat Namdev Ji. Bhagat ji had realised that indeed, everything is God's creation, and that God dwells inside every creature.
Bhagat jis devotion reached such a pitch that , One day when Namdev ji was sitting at a place doing his Bhajan, a dog came to the spot and ran away with the bread he had prepared for his midday meal. It is said that Bhagat Namdev ran after the dog not with a stick in his hand, but with a cup of Ghee; and he addressed the dog thus: "O Lord of the world! Why do You want to eat the dry bread? Take some Ghee along with it. It will taste much better". On hearing this the Lord gave his d ivine vision to Bhagat Namdev ji
