O brothers! (O sense organs of my body!) Relish the spiritual food and enjoy yourselves. The Guru has adorned me with the robe (of Divine attributes) from his divan or court. -Guru Arjan Sahib, Guru Granth Sahib, 73

Message: Which robe or dress can lead us to such an enjoyment which makes our body, mind and senses fully contented?

Cherishing the teachings of the Guru by associating with Guru-centred individuals is the ideal robe.

Cultivation of Divine values will help us to master our body-village and rein in our excessive emotions.

Ultimately, the practice of truth and divinity in life will lead us to inner balance and bliss.

Etymology: From Arabic qabaa (cloak).

Summary of the Week:
Simply wearing clothes and certain colours which are commonly associated with spirituality or holiness alone cannot enlighten us.

Let’s give priority to Divinity and live a lifestyle in accordance with the Divine teachings.

Then, we will realise that every act can be an act of prayer. We will automatically be motivated to be good for its own sake, as doing good, is a reward in itself.

Being beautiful has nothing to do with physical appearance. It’s your character as a person; it’s how you make others feel about themselves. -Anonymous
