Birds of Gurbani, Kaaga (Crow)
12″ X 16″
“In Punjabi folklore, a crow perching nearby is suppose to signal the coming of a loved one or guests. In Gurbani, the crow is mentioned similarly as a messenger and also ominously as a vulture pecking at meat. In these lines in Gurbani, the crow is specifically asked to not peck at the flesh of a devotee as the True Master of the devotee abides in everything including the devotee’s flesh.
Fareed Ji often mentions death and his flesh being pecked at by crows. It’s not the fear of death or pain that worries him but the fear of destruction of something that belongs to his True Master.”
