When Guru Nanak received enlightenment, he was accused by Mardana of not loving him.
“I love you the most,” replied the surprised Guru Nanak to Mardana.
“Why do you think that I don’t love you?
“ That is because you met God alone, and did not take me,” said Mardana. “If you had loved me, you would have taken me with you also with you to meet God!
“ I did not take you on purpose, “said Guru Nanak, smiling lovingly at Mardana. “If I had taken you to meet God, we would have sung his praises, and God would have loved your Rebec music so much, that he would have kept you with him in heaven.
Then, how could I have lived alone in this world, without you? asked Guru Nanak.
