Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! The message of Daya, or compassion has been a very central theme to the Sikh faith and as such we should do our best to built the values in our life. Daya is allowing yourself to assist those who need help with the idea of both sympathy and helping the need for humanity. In fact it has been so respected that Dharam, (righteousness) has been called the son of Daya. We must feel the pain of those who experience pain. Gurbani even says this: "ਨਿਰਦਇਆ ਨਹੀ ਜੋਤਿ ਉਜਾਲਾ ॥ निरदइआ नही जोति उजाला ॥ Nirḏa▫i▫ā nahī joṯ ujālā. You have no compassion; the Lord's Light does not shine in you.
ਬੂਡਤ ਬੂਡੇ ਸਰਬ ਜੰਜਾਲਾ ॥੪॥ बूडत बूडे सरब जंजाला ॥४॥ Būdaṯ būde sarab janjālā. ||4|| You are drowned, drowned in worldly entanglements. ||4||" (Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Ang 903) The message is that powerful that not having Daya has been called the example of being attached to the world despite what we have. So let us hopefully allow Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji to bless us with Daya and built a better life. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh
