Ardas - a feeling by Jasleen Kaur

You know how kids wake up before dawn on christmas, eager to open their gifts, too excited to sleep?

i want to feel like that every day, i want to feel that anticipation, that excitement for the gift of naam simran.

i want to wake up every single day at amritvela, like a kid at christmas.

please waheguru ji, please grant me this one request. i know that with this gift, everything else will fall into place.
