"No one is my enemy, none a stranger and everyone is my friend".
- Guru Arjun Dev Ji, 5th Guru, Guru Granth Sahib, P1299
Painting by Saru Rana
“Guru Arjun Dev Ji, as with the other Gurus, stressed that all mankind is equal in the eyes of God. We obtain salvation by loving our fellow human beings and God. Compassion, mercy and religion are the support of the entire world. Guru Arjun Dev ji said that minds are like precious jewels. Use the mind to love everyone. If you love God then you will not hurt anyone but will love them as though they are God as well. If you don’t see God in all, you don’t see God at all.”

Kanga, a small wooden comb used by the Sikhs to keep their hair tidy and free from tangles means that as we are untangling the hair with the wooden comb, so we untangle our mind through Simran (meditation on the name of God) and keep our lives tidy and organised. The wooden comb is kept under the turban by the men in their hair.
