The Guru as a newborn child had a radiance on his face and whosoever came to see the child felt happy and rejuvenated. Unlike other newborns Nanak Devji arrived in the world with a smile on his face. He was very different from the other babies of his age. When Pandit Har Dayal came to cast the newborn’s horoscope he was amazed by looking at the position of the stars and vital statistics of the baby. The Pundit acclaimed “This child is not an ordinary child but is a godsend of this earth, a messenger of the Almighty to show the path of holiness. The pundit even bowed down and saluted the child.
