61. The Guru's Marvellous Memory

The Guru's memory was wonderfully retentive. This was exemplified in his compiling the whole of Ad Granth from memory. He had asked for the original Granth from Baba Dhirmal ; but his request was refused with the taunt that when he prided so much on his talents it could not be a difficult matter to him to have a Granth of his own. Now when the Guru was free from the worries and anxieties of war he reproduced the whole volume from memory.
