Sakhi Confusion

I was confused about a Sakhi on Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Ji. In this Sakhi (which i don't remember the fulll details) Guru Sahib went to a holy Muslim city and encountered some Muslims who claimed that were only a certain amount of planets and neither regions. Guru Sahib then to prove that there were countless Universes, took one of the boys to another "realm" and they brought back prashad. My question was where did Guru Nanak take this boy. Was it in the past/future. Was it to another planet?

My details on the Sakhi are foggy, and I coudn't find it on the internet anywhere, so if anyone has the link please post.

I think some details of this Sakhi are written in Bhai Gurdas Jee’s Vaar, below is Pauri 36 from Vaar 1 :



ਪੁਛੇ ਪੀਰ ਤਕਰਾਰ ਕਰਿ ਏਹੁ ਫਕੀਰੁ ਵਡਾ ਅਤਾਈ ।
The pir debated and came to know that this faquir is much more powerful.

ਏਥੇ ਵਿਚਿ ਬਗਦਾਦ ਦੇ ਵਡੀ ਕਰਾਮਾਤਿ ਦਿਖਲਾਈ ।
Here in Baghdad he has shown a great miracle.

ਪਾਤਾਲਾ ਆਕਾਸ ਲਖਿ ਓੜਕਿ ਭਾਲੀ ਖਬਰਿ ਸੁਣਾਈ ।
Meanwhile he (Baba Nanak) talked about myriads of netherworlds and skies.

ਫੇਰਿ ਦੁਰਾਇਨ ਦਸਤਗੀਰ ਅਸੀ ਭਿ ਵੇਖਾ ਜੋ ਤੁਹਿ ਪਾਈ ।
Pir Dastegir asked (the Baba) to show him whatever he had seen.

ਨਾਲਿ ਲੀਤਾ ਬੇਟਾ ਪੀਰ ਦਾ ਅਖੀ ਮੀਟਿ ਗਇਆ ਹਵਾਈ ।
Guru Nanak Dev taking along with him the son of the pir, melted into thin air.

ਲਖ ਆਕਾਸ ਪਤਾਲ ਲਖ ਅਖਿ ਫੁਰਕ ਵਿਚਿ ਸਭਿ ਦਿਖਲਾਈ ।
And in a wink of eye visualized him the upper and lower worlds.

ਭਰਿ ਕਚਕੌਲ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਦਾ ਧੁਰੋ ਪਤਾਲੋ ਲਈ ਕੜਾਹੀ ।
From the nether world he brought a bowl full of sacred food and handed it over to pir.

ਜਾਹਰ ਕਲਾ ਨ ਛਪੈ ਛਪਾਈ ॥੩੬॥
This manifest power (of the Guru) cannot be made to hide.




Bhai Sahib Randheer Singh Jee has also written details of this visit which might be worth reading, below is a passage from a post in the ‘Articles & Stories from the Life of Bhai Randheer Singh’ Sticky thread :




Not only this world, but hundreds of thousands of Universes and galaxies and planets were won by Satnaam. Yes! Guru Baba spun the chakar of Satnaam in hundreds of thousands of planets like ours and saved countless universes with the support of Satnaam.

Yes! It is true! He being ਕੋਟਿਬ੍ਰਹਮੰਡਕੋਠਾਕੁਰੁਸੁਆਮੀਸਰਬਜੀਆਕਾਦਾਤਾਰੇ ॥ Master of millions of universes, the Giver of all beings. He is the resident of countless universes and giver to countless beings.

He is the giver of the gift of ਜੀਅਦਾਨੁਦੇਭਗਤੀਲਾਇਨਿ The gift of life and he is the one who attaches to Bhagti.

Scientists have discovered only now that in sky, in the stars we see, there are countless planets like ours and countless suns like our sun. It was regarding this that 500 years ago Satguru Nanak Dev said boldly

ਕੇਤੇਇੰਦਚੰਦਸੂਰਕੇਤੇਕੇਤੇਮੰਡਲਦੇਸ ॥
So many Indras, so many moons and suns, so many worlds and lands.

Not only did he say this boldly, he made countless Gursikhs aware of the amazing giaan in Giaan Khand.

He showed the reality and scene of ਕੇਤੇਇੰਦਚੰਦਸੂਰਕੇਤੇਕੇਤੇਮੰਡਲਦੇਸ ॥ in clear form.

The research of scientists is yet very little and still not developed but Satguru Nanak showed Pir Dastgir’s son in the blink of an eye, all the hundreds and thousands of universes and galaxies. In the blink of an eye he took him on a trip through the galaxies and universes. To prove the truth of the vastness of creation to Pir Dastgir, who only believed in Islam’s 7 upper and nether regions, and to make him board the boat of true faith and belief, Guru Sahib did all this:

ਨਾਲ ਲੀਤਾ ਬੇਟਾ ਪੀਰ ਦਾ ਅਖੀਂ ਮੀਟ ਗਿਆ ਹਵਾਈ॥
Guru Nanak Dev taking along with him the son of the pir, melted into thin air.

ਲਖ ਅਕਾਸ਼ ਪਤਾਲ ਲਖ ਅਖ ਫੁਰਕ ਵਿਚ ਸਭ ਦਿਖਲਾਈ॥
And in a wink of eye showed him the hundreds of thousands of upper and lower worlds.

And also,

ਭਰ ਕਚਕੌਲ ਪ੍ਰਸ਼ਾਦ ਦਾ ਧੁਰੋਂ ਪਤਾਲੋਂ ਲਈ ਕੜਾਹੀ॥
From the nether world he brought a cauldron full of parshaad and handed some over to the Pir


From this it is clear and proven that before offering salvation to this world, Satguru Nanak had spread the order and cycle of Satnaam in countless universes and galaxies and saved them. And Guru Baba’s Sangat in the nether worlds was enjoying Karah Parshad just like the sangat here does [it was from this sangat that Guru Sahib brought the karah parshad back for Pir Dastgir].

The lord of the entire creation cares about and is concerned for all his creation. And just like this, he is concerned about the goings on in each epoch.

So then there's other planets out their that have Sikhs, where Guru Sahib went and preached to? This whole concept is mind boggling!
