Once When Saint Satramdas Sahib along with some of his devotees
was passing by a place, he saw some people were disturbing the bees
by hurting them and making them fly from their hives in the trees,
and then these people were collecting honey from the honey combs in the bee
They told Saint Satramdas Sahib that they have been doing this for fun and they do it very frequently.
Saint Satramdas Saheb told them that the bee makes a place to live
with her young ones in these hives.
Honey bees collect pollen and nectar from the flowers and prepare
Honey, and this honey can cure so many diseases.
This Honey is very useful as a medicine, God has added a healing
power in it which is incredible.
If we closely observe the process of how honey is made we can get
useful knowledge, as well as, good health, and get connected to the
Lord. He also said that among all the bees, there is a Queen Mother bee who has the blessing, and power of sensing the flowers and plants, very intelligently. When she is satisfied of the quality and type of flowers and the plants she goes back to the young ones and the other bees and then, they all follow her back to those plants and flowers to collect the nectar from them. The Mother bee while flying leaves a fragrance behind, which is like an invisible line and by sensing that fragrance and following that line the other bees follow her.
When all the bees reach the flowers and plants to collect the nectar
they do not damage them at all while doing their job.
In the same way they follow mother bee back to their hives by sensing her sweet
fragrance and use the nectar to make honey which is used for our good health and cures many diseases.
As the honey is made by following the queen bee, without hurting any one, it has miraculous power of healing. If we too live our lives
without troubling any one and follow the path of our Satguru by
destroying our ego, we too can be blessed by the lord in such a way
that we can set a wonderful example for all the living beings and by
following the path of love and care we can make our lives shine and
can attain oneness.
Saint Satramdas Sahib Said” Dear ones, by destroying and squeezing the fresh and undeveloped honey combs we commit a sin of manslaughter and we also get the curse of troubling living beings without any reason which is not acceptable even by the NATURE and the hard work food and power of the honey bees also get wasted and their process of giving birth to their young ones also stops.
If honey is extracted for curing the diseases of humans, their betterment and for increasing their inner power without hurting the bees it is good otherwise it is a sin.
