Routes of Satguru
Prefect Devinder Singh handed over the attendance list to the hostel superintendent Prof. Baljeet Singh Grewal and went away in the fall of 1978.At the same time Prof. S.S.Narula and myself went in to meet Prof. B.S.Grewal of Government College, Ludhiana. But he was sitting in a melancholy mood,we asked what was the cause of his sadness.He told us that he was repenting a missed chance.And it was when he(Prof. Baljeet Singh Grewal) was doing the service with Government College,Hissar in 1966.In that year he himself saw with his own eyes a book written by Martin Luther in Latin language in which had a reference that Satguru Nanak Sahib had a discussion with Martin Luther on the mountain Ypsario in Greece in early March of 1520. He could neither photocopy that reference nor write the title of that book anywhere.After about 12 years, he went there but could not find that book as that was misshelved or misplaced.He appologised to the Almighty Satguru and prayed that He could get it done through some one else.That book also contained a poem written by Pontano G.G. in praise of the Almighty Satguru whom he(Pontano) saw in Hardwar in 1501. In 1980, I went to the library of Punjab University,Chandigarh and happened to see the book Travels Of Guru Nanak written by Prof. Surinder Singh Kohli in 1969 and published by Publication Bureau,Punjab University, Chandigarh. In his chapter "Turkey And Beyond Turkey" on page no. 152-154, the respected Prof. has mentioned that----"Various Sikh scholars have expressed their opinion that the Guru who had visited all the prominent religious centres, could not ignore Vatican(Rome) in Italy,which is the seat of Pope or the Head of the Catholic Church.Therefore his visit to Rome in Italy can not be ruled out." This statement of Prof. Kohli had confirmed the statement of Prof. Baljeet Singh Grewal and struck to me with the twisted arrow.I was converted to the cause of the Almighty Satguru.It is rightly said in the Almighty Guru Granth Sahib Ji "Har Prem Bani Munn Marea Aniale Ania Ramraje---" Pious page of 449 of SGGS.The God has shoot the twisted arrow of love at me and I felt the pangs of separation from Him while doing the allotted duties by Him. Nobody knows His plans and intentions,which He certainly has.The time passed by and I continued to persue my limited efforts in this direction while performing my worldly duties. The Almighty Guru Granth ahib Ji sent me to Canada in 1995.On June 5,1998,I was sent to the city of Toronto, where He allotted me various duties.After a long wait in the month of August,2007,He did no less than a miracle when the librarion placed the third volume of Roscoe William before me, printed in 1806 in London and written on the life of Leo-x, who was the Pope in 1520. The whole explanation is given herewith. This volume contains that poem translated in English by G.G.Pontano(1426-1503).Pontano was an Italion poet,worker and statesman.He was made the Chancellor,Prime Minister of Neples in Italy.He visited India and came to have the glimpse of Almighty Satguru in Hardwar in 1501.On his return to Italy, he told both Martin Luther and Leo-x(who was the cardinal at that time) that he(Pontano) had seen A- Mahan-Purakh in India with his own eyes which was different from Hinduism,Mohammedenism, Christianity,Jainism and Budhism.Martin Luther was a student of a University in Eruft(Germany). In the month of December 2007, I happened to borrow the Martand written by Giani Lal Singh Sangrur and published by Lahore Book Shop, Lahore printed in the year of 1941 from Giani Lakhwinder Singh .By the grace of the Almighty Satguru, Giani Lal Singh Sangrur, had confirmed the Great Satguru's meeting with Martin Luther on the mountain of Ypsari in Greece. The name of the rest house or the building where Selim 1 of the Ottoman Empire accompanied the Great Satguru, is Ilahi Nur.With the grace of the Almighty Satguru and the co-operation of Bhai Jasvir Singh Chana for providing the necessary information regarding the Google Earth,I was able to confirm the mountain.This mountain is located on Thassos Island which is about five hundred Kilometers from the city of Istanbul(Turky).
From the mountain Ypsario(zari), the whole team(the kafla) reached the mountain Olympus.From there the whole team went to Vales of Temps, Trikkala, Polio-Kastro, the city of Lamia, Athens, and through various towns, they went to the city of Kastoria.From this city, the caliph, returned to Istanbul,Martin Luther left for Germany via Yugoslavia.You can read the details of Almighty Satguru's reaching Rome in my chapter Guru Nanak and Martin Luther.
The completion of St. Peters Squre took place in April 1520.The Roman Emperor, Charles-v sent the invitation to Martin Luther and others for inauguration(Please note that the new St. Peters Church comleted later on).The Roman Emperor, Charles-v's father belonged to German.That is why he made a law in 1519 that no German citizen should be made guilty without a trial.That is why he(Martin Luther) visited Rome in 1520 and attended the inaugural ceremony and consequntly the Diwan of Almighty Satguru in St. Peters Square. Martin Luther and his writings were declared against the Christianity In June15, 1520 and he was exiled by the Pope Leo-x in 1521 after Luther's firm stand regarding the corruption in the Christian Church at his trial At The Diet Of Worms.The Pope had to pay the penality by sacrificing his life for trying to suppress the voice of truth.Roscoe William in his Book written on the Life And Pontificate Of Leo-x printed in 1806 that Leo-x was poisoned not in his food but in his linen that is his gown.The Almighty Satguru has pointed--" Sach Purana Howay Naahin Seeta Kadey Na Patey" Pious page no.956 of SGGS and "Sach Purana Na Theai--" Pious page no.1248 of SGGS.The truth never gets old and whoever is attached to the truth,he or she is never torn that is he or she remains intact. For His journey to Albania, Yugoslavia, Romania and onward, Please read in my other chapter.Hence, the Almighty Satguru has done His job through various individuals.The Almighty Guru Granth Sahib Ji says----"Jis Ka Karaj Tin Hi kea Manas Kya Wichara Ram"Pious page no.784 of SGGS. He does His own job and nothing lies with the poor man, O Almighty God! Special thanks to Bhai Harjit Singh Khalsa and Kirpa kaur and Bhai Jagtaran Singh of Sikh Students Association of University Of Toronto,my dear daughters Navjot Kaur and Simran Kaur and all others for their timely help and constructive suggestions.May God bless all of them!
