  1. Very nicely authored and thanks for very informative post.
  2. I am grateful to all of you for taking the pains for espressing their views on Dasam Dwar. It is clear that the tenth door is within the body. Whether it is physically presennt of not is a matter of significance. The tenth gate is hidden[ang 1031] and it appears that the tenh door is hidden in the body else the above tuk @ ang 1031should not have mentioned. I am not very clear about it. Secondly ,it has been stated by some of my friends that it is the place of soul as well. Naam abhiyaas makes one realize this door. What is naam abhiyaas? Is the japping 'waheguru' and reading and reciting equivalent to 'Naam abhiyaas.'? Kindly quote with thelp of Bani. thx.
  3. The unstruck sound current of the Shabad vibrates and resounds in the Tenth Gate; the Ambrosial Naam trickles down there. ||2||[1002-6] The Dasm dwar appears in the Granth sahib at many places. I shall be garteful if members can throw some light on this.
  4. The Primal Lord, the Architect of Destiny, formed your form; He also burdened you with egotism. He alone is born and dies; He alone comes and goes. ||3||[ang 999-18] Kindly explain the meaning of the above lines.
  5. This a second question regarding the meaning of Rama. Rama has been stated in Granth sahib as symbolic representation of Akaal. However, in the following tuk the meaning is not in alignment with sikh philosophy. Kindly enlighten.! ਜਸਰਥ ਰਾਇ ਨੰਦੁ ਰਾਜਾ ਮੇਰਾ ਰਾਮ ਚੰਦੁ ਪ੍ਰਣਵੈ ਨਾਮਾ ਤਤੁ ਰਸੁ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਪੀਜੈ ॥੪॥੪॥ जसरथ राइ नंदु राजा मेरा राम चंदु प्रणवै नामा ततु रसु अम्रितु पीजै ॥४॥४॥ Jasrath rā▫e nanḏ rājā merā rām cẖanḏ paraṇvai nāmā ṯaṯ ras amriṯ pījai. ||4||4|| My Sovereign Lord King is Raam Chandra, the Son of the King Dasrat'h; prays Naam Dayv, I drink in the Ambrosial Nectar. ||4||4||
  6. What would be the meaning of the following line.The question is poised as the translation puts Brahma as the creator and this is not as per accepted sikh philosophy. ਸੁਅਸਤਿ ਆਥਿ ਬਾਣੀ ਬਰਮਾਉ ॥ सुअसति आथि बाणी बरमाउ ॥ Su▫asaṯ āth baṇī barmā▫o. I bow to the Lord of the World, to His Word, to Brahma the Creator.
  7. Thanks Veer ji for clarifying that for us Guru is Sabad Guru only and that is equivalent to God only and one is able to experience him by constant practice of bani by implementing it in real life. I do post my doubts in this thread and shall be very grateful if these are attended to in future as well. I thank you again.
  8. There has to be a meaning to the bani else persons like me should stop understanding bani and concentrate on 'Waheguru' and carry on.This shall be the sum total of sikhi. However, it is not to state that the significance of the fourth state i.e above Trigunas. If one attain that state there is not much scope for bani as in that case the person stands understanding the message. If Bani is not for an ordinary person it shall not be profitable for illeterate or literate. True Grace of God is required in almost every act of the human being. But then understanding the meaning of Tuk or a line is well within the scope of being a sikh.Frankly speaking, I shall not read another Teeka to understand what Guru ji was. He has stated that in Mool Mantra. Instead of saying 'there is no contextual meaning of bani' ,it should have been more appropriate if you could have expanded on the meaning that you should have assigned to the above 'tuks'. I do refer to the Teeka of Dr. Sahib singh and post a question when the Teeka stop answereing the question. Yes, I shall try to read that you have suggested.Kindly give me the source or link,if the Aarta is available on the internet. some musings and ramblings!! Thanks and regards.
  9. sqguru syiv gux inDwnu pwieAw iqs dI kIm n pweI ] (32-9, isrIrwgu, mÚ 3) Serving the True Guru, one finds the Lord, the Treasure of Excellence. His Value cannot be estimated. -- The above 'tuk' states that by serving the 'true guru' one finds the God i.e Akaal. Who is the true guru for us.it is the 'sabad' the SGGS. What would be the contextual meaning of this. I shall be grateful for the response of the respected members. Regards.
  10. A very nice effort PJS ji. Thanks for wonderful exposition. Kindly keep your efforts.I want to take the print out of this but am not sure as to how to do this. Any help.? Regards.
  11. ਮਨਮੁਖਿ ਮੋਹੁ ਗੁਬਾਰੁ ਹੈ ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ਬੋਲੈ ॥ मनमुखि मोहु गुबारु है दूजै भाइ बोलै ॥ Manmukẖ moh gubār hai ḏūjai bẖā▫e bolai. The self-willed manmukh is trapped in the darkness of emotional attachment; in the love of duality he speaks. ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ਸਦਾ ਦੁਖੁ ਹੈ ਨਿਤ ਨੀਰੁ ਵਿਰੋਲੈ ॥ दूजै भाइ सदा दुखु है नित नीरु विरोलै ॥ Ḏūjai bẖā▫e saḏā ḏukẖ hai niṯ nīr virolai. The love of duality brings pain forever; he churns the water endlessly. In the above tuks we have a reference to duality, a term that has appeared at many places in the Granth Sahib. What exactly is the meaning of duality. I shall be very grateful if light is thrown by the members. Thx.
  12. I came across a tik' explaining the purpse of Ongkar.I am sharing it with the sangat for a clarification. One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru: From Ongkaar, the One Universal Creator God, Brahma was [929-17 and subsequently lines follow] He kept Ongkaar in his consciousness. From Ongkaar, the mountains and the ages were created. Ongkaar created the Vedas. Ongkaar saves the world through the Shabad. Ongkaar saves the Gurmukhs. WE have in Bani 'Naam de Dhaarey sagle Jant'. and many others as well that state to the effect that everything is created from Naam. What is the equivalence of Naam and ongkaar.Kindly think it over and give your valuable opinion. Regards
  13. ਨਉ ਸਰ ਸੁਭਰ ਦਸਵੈ ਪੂਰੇ ॥ no sar subhar dhasavai poorae || By practicing control over the nine gates, one attains perfect control over the Tenth Gate. 19 Raamkalee Guru Nanak Dev Thanks Brother for clarification. I have above line for some clarification.I presume that 9 gates refer to indriyan etc. How to control these.Kindly explain as to how to achive perfect control over these and as to what is the Tenth gate. Is it physically present in us or is it a metaphoric use.A detailed reply would be very helpful.
  14. Without meeting the True Guru, the Naam cannot be found.[946-8] As per the above the Naam is to be given by the GOD i.e satguru. Wepeactice on the word 'waheguroo' and 'satanaam waheguru'. Are these the Naam for sikhs. If so what is the exact relevance of the Tuk. Kindly explain. Regards
