Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!


I had a question I have been thinking about from long. I am just trying to figure out how should you really view people. Like if a person is a manmukh, are you suppose to give the same respect, love that you would give to a Gursikh? Guru Sahib ji says that Sab Gobind Hai, which means each and everything is God. So it makes sense that you have unconditional love for everything (not attachment), even for people who are not amritdharis.


But on the other hand, there are so many times written in Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji that "Consider a person to be a corpse who does not remember God" or "Don't even look at the faces of people who don't have a Guru". This would mean there is high and low.


But how does Guru ji really would want us to see? Sometimes, I would find myself thinking how wrong this person is because they do kurehet or wrong things and feel they are so off path (not in the way of looking down at them, just thinking generally). But sometimes, I think even manmukhs are manmukhs because they are walking of His Will.

I think you should explain what "gurmukh' and 'manmukh' actually mean to you.

A 'Gursikh' does not mean they are 'gurmukh' !!!

HUGE difference

The definitions are what Guru ji provides. Gursikh, who gets up at amritvela, has rehet, does nitnem.

That's a'' gursikh''.

BUT what is a Gurmukh and Manmukh ???

What do you class yourself as ??

Are most other members on here gurmukhs or manmukhs ??

read bhai nand lalji's rehatnama and takhnama u will understand

A rehtnama does not define what a gurmukh or manmukh is !!

It can help clarify what a gursikh is supposed to be though :biggrin2:

If you think otherwise, then you too can explain what is the difference with all 3 terms ! :strong:

The answer is in your own question.
