Harmandir Sahib Amritsar- A Synonym of Spirituality

Harmandir Sahib Amritsar is just another name for Golden temple, Amritsar. It is a Gurudwara built by Guru Arjan Singh. The architectural features of Harmandir Sahib represent the Sikh's world view. I was walking slowly enjoying the sight of Harmandir Sahib. The Harmandir Sahib is a huge complex spread in the acres of land. The Gurudwara is surrounded by a holy lake called “Sarover” and its water is called “Amrit”. Gurudwara has 4 entrances signifying openness of Sikh religion. Inside the Gurdwara premises there are many shrines to Sikh Gurus, saints and martyrs. There are 3 holy trees, each signifying a historical incident or Sikh Gurus. Inside the Gurdwara, there are many memorial plaques that narrate Sikh historical events, saints, martyrs and include honouring inscriptions of all the Sikh soldiers, who died fighting in World War I and World War II.

We decided to listen to Gurubani; one should sit on the ground to listen to Gurubani at Darbar Sahib in respect to Gurugranth Sahin and almighty. One of the most celebrated occasions at Harmandir Sahib is 'Vaisakhi', celebrated in the month of April every year. Khalsa was founded on this day, so it is celebrated. Ceiling of Harmandir Sahib is etched with Gold. Devotees pay their respect by bowing in servitude. Gurugranth Sahib is installed inside every Gurudwara, and it is considered to be the most holy text of Sikhism.

This visit to the Harmandir Sahib Amritsar filled my heart with gratitude for almighty God. It was so pleasant and offered spiritual atmosphere that I wish I could stay there forever. When you are in the temple premises, you almost forget all temporal pleasure and pain. This aroma of religiousness surrounds you with all positive energy. Richa, Sonali and I were almost completely lull during this whole visit. There is a peace in spite of being overcrowded. There is something in that atmosphere, which makes us talk to God directly. When you close your eyes listening to Gurubani, you get completely oblivious of the whole world. I felt charged after visiting Harmandir Sahib. After this we proceeded towards Akal Takht, Amritsar. “Wahe guru ji da khalsa, wahe guru ji di fateh!”
