This excerpt is shared from the book Heroes, Saints and Yogis: Tales of Self Discovery and the Path of Sikh Dharma, compiled by Shakti Parwha Kaur Khalsa and Guruka Singh Khalsa.
Pundits (scholars) and other village intellectuals were not happy, to say the least, about having to bow to a little child as their Guru. To test his spiritual authority, they asked Har Krishan to give them a dissertation on the Bhagavad Gita.
Har Krishan refused and told them to send for Chhajjoo, a simple water carrier. Chhajjoo was considered to be the “village idiot.” He never spoke and people thought he was deaf. Everyone pretty much ignored him.
When Chhajjoo was brought before him, Guru Har Krishan touched him and immediately this deaf- mute began to speak, eloquently interpreting the meaning and importance of the famous Gita.
This story illustrates that God can work through anyone. Ego isn’t just thinking you’re better than other people; ego is also believing that you are not good enough, or unworthy.
