||Dhoona Sahib History Board ( Hindi )
Guru Nanak Dev Ji reached this place (Called
Gorakhmatta at that time an Nanakmatta now a days) and sat for meditation
under a pipal tree. The yogis were surprised to see him there as this
place was quite inaccessible, especially during the winters.
The weather being cold, Bhai Mardana requested the yogis for some fire
but was refused. The yogis, instead, taunted him and told him that he
should go and ask his Guru who was with him.
Knowing this situation, Guru Nanak Dev ji looked at a pile of firewood nearby and it got
instantly lit. The weather suddenly became bad and it began to rain. As a
result, the fires lit by the yogis were extinguished but the one lit by
Guru ji was not affected at all and remained glowing till the next
morning. The yogis realized their mistake and fell at the feet of the
Guru. This place can be seen in the main Gurudwara.
