Total bliss at His feet

I consider myself lucky that I was born in the holy city of Amritsar that was founded by the fourth guru of Sikhs, Sri Guru Ram Das. I visit the Golden Temple daily. I get up much earlier than the sunrise, take a quick bath and a swift walk, to and fro — a distance of 10 kms. Writes Rameshinder Singh Sandhu.
