Sakhi Series :- 237 (Respect of Guru Granth Sahib ji Maharaj)

Giani Kartar Singh Jee Khalsa Bindranwale

Baba Kartar Singh Jee served as the Jathedar of Damdami Taksal for 8 years and did much Gurmat Parchar in this time

Giani Kartar Singh Jee Khalsa Bindranwale was once asked to lay the foundation of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur charitable hospital in Ludhiana. When he arrived there, about 15-20 men got up in the Divan to welcome him. Baba Jee walked out and left. 

The organisers went and asked the reason for this exit and he replied that 'in the presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee no one should stand to welcome or respect another, as this degrades the respect of the Guru.'  

After the organisers asked for forgiveness, he sent them all back into the Divan and Baba Jee went in by himself after all of them. He explained to them that it doesn't matter how famous the leader or great a Gursikh is - no one is greater than the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee Maharaj.
