#AnmolSakhiya Guru Nanak Dev Ji gave the Gurgaddi to Bhai Lehna ji! The final and historical act was that Guru Nanak Dev Ji gave the Gurgaddi to Bhai Lehna ji (Guru Angad Dev Ji), who was not a relative or a son of the Guru but rather a disciple who had acted on Guru Ji’s teachings without ever questioning them. He held a big congregation on September 2, 1539, praised Bhai Lehna ji for his single minded devotion and service, and placed five paisas and a coconut before him and put his head at Bhai Lehna’s feet, and called him Angad or part of his own body. Thus, Bhai Lehna became Guru Angad Dev Ji. This was a unique act in the history of the world religeons, where a Guru bowed at the feet of the disciple and made him the Guru. By doing this he established the unity and the continuity of Guruship – the concept of the continuity of the same spirit. As a result, the succeeding Gurus used the name Nanak in their composition

Tilang, First Mehl: O foolish and ignorant soul-bride, why are you so proud?Within the home of your own self, why do you not enjoy the Love of your Lord?Your Husband Lord is so very near, O foolish bride; why do you search for Him outside?Apply the Fear of God as the maascara to adorn your eyes, and make the Love of the Lord your ornament.Then, you shall be known as a devoted and committed soul-bride, when you enshrine love for your Husband Lord. ||1||What can the silly young bride do, if she is not pleasing to her Husband Lord?She may plead and implore so many times, but still, such a bride shall not obtain the Mansion of the Lord's Presence.Without the karma of good deeds, nothing is obtained, although she may run around frantically.She is intoxicated with greed, pride and egotism, and engrossed in Maya.She cannot obtain her Husband Lord in these ways; the young bride is so foolish! ||2||Go and ask the happy, pure soul-brides, how did they obtain their Husband Lord?Whatever the Lord does, accept that as good; do away with your own cleverness and self-will.By His Love, true wealth is obtained; link your consciousness to His lotus feet.As your Husband Lord directs, so you must act; surrender your body and mind to Him, and apply this perfume to yourself.So speaks the happy soul-bride, O sister; in this way, the Husband Lord is obtained. ||3||Give up your selfhood, and so obtain your Husband Lord; what other clever tricks are of any use?When the Husband Lord looks upon the soul-bride with His Gracious Glance, that day is historic - the bride obtains the nine treasures.She who is loved by her Husband Lord, is the true soul-bride; O Nanak, she is the queen of all.Thus she is imbued with His Love, intoxicated with delight; day and night, she is absorbed in His Love.She is beautiful, glorious and brilliant; she is known as truly wise. ||4||2||4||
