A Gurmukh Is Always Humble
Datu (b. 1537 AD), son of Guru Angad Dev, considered himself to be the claimant of ‘Gurgaddi’, which he however could not ascend to. Deeply frustrated, Datu struck Guru Amar Das with his foot when he was seated on ‘Gurgaddi.’ With a rare display of sweetness and humility, the Guru kept seated on the ‘Gurgaddi’ and did not utter a word of anguish. Rather, he observed, Your foot must have been hurt by my hard bones. Guru Sahib did not act by way of coercion but displayed his compassion.
