Why Did the Gurus’ Path Lead through So Much Hardship and Pain?
The Gurus went through hardship and pain to set an example. They wanted others to see the truth. By accepting the will of God, their acts and words proclaimed the principle, “O Lord, Thy Will is Sweet to me, and I accept it.” The Gurus fought for the rights of others—they bore great hardships so that others may live free.
Sikh history tells us that practicing the Sikh way of life can create a consciousness of deathlessness and fearlessness and human beings who can sacrifice for truth in such a true way that torture and tragedy can be completely subdued.
