This story took place not very long ago. A girl going to college serves her sick brother with sincere dedication. After a series of meetings with a divine character her faith is strengthened. She realizes there is great power in prayer and God can come to us in our normal lives.
A robber named, Bhumi Daku, met Guru Nanak. He promised the Guru certain things. Later these promises made chaos as they changed how he could steal from people. The whole scene gets turned up side down but Bhumi Daku kept his promises to the Guru. He ended up learning a great lesson. The Guru taught him in such a wonderful way!
Once Guru Amar Das ji was in deep, deep meditation. His daughter, Bibi Bhani, saw that the platform he was on was going to break and he would be jolted awake when that happens. She put her hand in the way. Her hand got cut really bad. When Guru ji saw her pain and devotion he granted her a blessing. She asked that the Guruship always stay in her family line. The rest of the Gurus were descendants of Bibi Bhani and Guru Ram Das.
Once Guru Nanak went on a long walk with all his dicsiples. As they were walking some people found money on the ground and they went home. After a long, long distance only two Sikhs were left. Guru Nanak told them to eat a dead body. One Sikh couldn't do it, but Bhai Lehna humbly obeyed. Lehna's devotion surpassed all tests. He was so devoted he was like an 'ang' a limb of the Guru.
Guru Nanak knew that the time was coming for him to do his mission. He sat by the river and was confronted by all kinds of demons but he wasn't distracted. After they couldn't do anything to him, he went in to the river for 3 days. When he came out he said Japji. Soon after he, Mardana and Bala went on great journeys to go everywhere and help the world.
When he was a teenager, Guru Nanak had the job of weighing grain. Sometimes he would accidentally give too much grain. When his boss heard about this he came over to see how much Nanak had given away for free. To his surprise there wasn't less grain than there should have been, there was more grain than there should have been! Guru Nanak was again protected because he was joined with God.
Once, when Guru Nanak was young, he stopped eating very much. He just stayed in his room and missed being with God. His parents got worried and called a doctor to see if he was sick. While he was being checked out, Nanak started telling the doctor all of the doctors problems. The doctor said "He's not sick, he just misses God."
Kalu Mehta, Guru Nanak's father, tried to get his son to make some money. He gave him some money to go buy some things in the market to sell to someone else for more money. Nanak bought some good foods for this. When he met some holy men who hadn't eaten, he gave everything to them. His father was really angry when he came back with nothing. Serving the saints is surely more benefit than money!
As a child Nanak was only concerned with meditating on God. Even when he was sleeping, he was with God. Once he fell asleep under a tree. When the sun moved he was going to get burned by the hot rays. A cobra protected him from being woken up by spreading it's hood over him as shade. When Rai Bular saw this scene he considered this child Nanak to be very special.
When Guru Nanak was a boy he once took the cows out to graze. He fell asleep and the cows ate all the neighbors crops. When the man found out he told Rai Bular, the village chief, to punish Nanak's father. Everyone went to see the field the cows destroyed. When they got there not only were the plants OK, they were even greener than before. Because Nanak was meditating on God nothing went wrong.
