They say in the shade of the mango tree, what does that mean? In India shade of the mango tree is the best shade to sit in. Why? Because obviously you have the mangoes and there is sweetness and it is said under the mango tree there is always coolness. So they are safe from this world and within them they are blessed from this shade of God, with this sweetness. That is how they live their lives, they don’t live their lives with the burning, they live their lives in this beautiful shade.

And Satgurji is saying to us that should be the only Ardaas we should have it now in our minds and hearts and prayers for today.
