NEW SIKH CHILDREN'S STORY: Guru Nanak & The Two Villages

Mardana doesn't understand why Guru Nanak would bless both the mean people of one village as well as the kind peopl...

SikhNet is happy to announce our latest Audio Story for children. You can listen to the YouTube video below or click here to listen and download the black and white image for coloring in! 

With these stories we encourage parents, aunts and uncles to not only share the stories with children but model the morals in our own lives so that children can learn from our living example.

In this story Guru Nanak, Bala and Mardana visit two different villages. The first one is full of mean people who treat their guests very rudely and even throw rocks at them! Guru Nanak blessed them to stay where they are.The next village was full of generous and kind people who would do anything to serve their honored guests. Guru Nanak blessed them to scatter around the world. 

Mardana didn't understand the blessings, it seemed like Guru ji was cursing the kind people and rewarding the mean ones. When he finally asks, Guru ji teaches him a profound message. We can all learn from this timeless Guru story the value of being friendly and hospitable. 

Each of us has to decide how we will treat others. And we who believe in the Guru’s teachings, we feel like this: ‘atit vekh nahi devai daan, so nahi paavai dargah maan’ which means, ‘The one who does not serve a guest, will not be honored in the court of God’. So go and be happy! Welcome everyone as family, and take care of your guests with love.

We hope you and your children enjoy this story. If so, SPREAD IT AROUND!
